Sweet, I hope the graphics are re-done, the Sega titles available via XBLA look awful in HD.

Seems like the same thing that PSP had a while back.

Would be a good investment if the gfx were updated, but I imagine this will just be a simple emulation job for that price.

screw updating the graphics - I'd buy that anyway! Can anyone say severe nostalgia?

"All the games in the collection have been "converted" to high definition and will be output in 720p. To top everything else, the collection will retail for only $29.99. The only caveat thus far is that it appears the collection won't support any sort of online multiplayer, as the game details page notes that players can play "with a friend from the same console at home."

Alex Kidd! I still need to finish that. Got to the end game boss once, after an entire day of playing since you couldn't save. I hope they add that in for this though. Golden Axe and Streets of Rage basically do the sale for me.

"Look daddy, a bunch of absolutely awful games .... only R300" :sick:

I played these when I was like 5. They're hardly awful, they have awesome gameplay. This came from a time when companies knew how to make fun games and didn't have to buy clients with eyecandy.

Don't get me wrong, I played all of them as well when younger ... I was getting at how they are so awful now.

meh...why even LOOK at "Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection" ?

I'm guessing a few guys here have their own "Ultimate" Collections with 100's more than these few classics, and with NES,SNES,Genisis,Gameboy,Dolphin,Xbox,PSP,Arcade as well.

I don't get what the hype is about? this is supposed to be abondonware....
