After Sega had to pull out of the hard-fought console wars after the failure of the Dreamcast, it was a sad moment, but at least Sega as a company was still around, still making video games. The problem is that even as just a software company, Sega is still not at all what it used to be, having put out one shitty Sonic game after another until recently. And now it appears that the company itself is on the verge of shutting down.
Sega Game Gear will soon be one of the consoles with games on the Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console, adding a little SEGA!!! to the list of consoles that right now is Nintendo-only.
Good news Dreamcast fans— Sega’s first Dreamcast Collection for the Xbox 360 and PC drops February 22nd with four Dreamcast games. Not the best Dreamcast games, but it’s a start. The collection includes Sega Bass Fishing, Sonic Adventure, Space Channel Part 2 and Crazy Taxi. Hopefully at some point they might release another pack with the original Space Channel, Seaman, Chu Chu Rocket and Jet Grind Radio.
If you were a fan of the Dreamcast, the good news is that it lives on as it’s been unofficially been ported to Android. There’s been other portable ports of the Dreamcast, but this one is the first one on Android. Check out the video of Crazy Taxi and Dead or Alive 2 running on Android below. Caution: Shitty music.
