Sega Announces Sega Genesis Collection for PS2 and PSP

August 11, 2006

Sega has announced what could possibly be one of the finest classic video game package, if only for the large number of games. Sega Genesis Collection will feature 30(!) Megadrive/Genesis gems and will be available for the PS2 and PSP, with 3 Master System games being unlockable on the PS2.

According to the-magicbox, the list of games include:

  • Alex Kidd: The Enchanted Castle
  • Altered Beast
  • Bonaza Bros.
  • Columns
  • Comix Zone
  • Decap Attack
  • Ecco the Dolphin
  • Ecco: The Tides oF Time
  • Ecco Jr.
  • Eternal Champion
  • Flicky
  • Gain Ground
  • Golden Axe, Golden Axe II, Golden Axe III
  • Phantasy Star II, Phantasy Star III, Phantasy Star IV: The End of Millennium
  • Ristar
  • Shadow Dancer
  • Shinobi III
  • Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic The Hedgehog 2
  • Super Thunderblade
  • Sword Of Vermilion
  • Vectorman, Vectorman 2
  • Virtua Fighter 2
  • Zaxxon (unlockable in PS2 version only)
  • TAC/Scan (unlockable in PS2 version only)
  • Zektor (unlockable in PS2 version only)

What I’d like to know is how good is the emulation in the PSP version compared to the homebrew Megadrive/Genesis emulator already out there (which is actually quite good with the right settings for a bunch of those games listed), especially if since commercial games are capped at a clock speed of 222mhz. I’m thinking for the PSP they just might be ported as opposed to emulated if they can’t get them working fast enough.
