Sega Classics On PSN, Set To Entice New PSP Go Owners
If you haven't checked out the Store since its update yesterday and you're a die-hard Sega fan, you're totally missing out. All aboard the nostalgia train!
As revealed at the PlayStation Blog, Sega community manager Julian Mehlfeld has listed the new PSP Go offerings on the PSN: we've got Alien Syndrome, Crazy Taxi: Fare Wars (everyone remember how we all loved Crazy Taxi on the Dreamcast?), Crush, Full Auto: Battlelines (if you're a Twisted Metal fan, you should definitely check it out), the awesome Sega Genesis Collection (formerly released on the PS2), Iron Man, Sonic Rivals and Sonic Rivals 2, and lastly, Super Monkey Ball Adventure (hearken back to the GameCube). Sega is definitely handing out the old-school gems to new PSP Go owners and of course, you can always give 'em a try on the PSP-3000, too. Many have questioned the $250 price tag for Sony's new handheld, but with all this content - and the rumors that it may fall to $199 this holiday season - you may want to seriously consider a purchase. Or, if you're already a PSP owner, you might want to think about an upgrade, even though we don't yet have a conversion program for switching your UMD libraries over to digital format. That's coming soon.
So anyway, if you loved the old Sega Genesis - and who didn't? - these are all games you're familiar with, and you'll likely want to revisit them...unless, for some weird reason, you've still got the cartridges somewhere.
