I rage every time emulation packs like this get upscaled with a 4xHQ filter and are advertised as "Now in HD!!". That's not HD, you dumbfucks.

This will be great. I Would love to see best of the Saturn collection out so that people that missed out on the Saturn experience can enjoy some of Sega's best 2D games.

Dude, totally. But they should do three volumes:

* Panzer Dragoon Collection, with Panzer Dragoon, Panzer Dragoon Zwei, and Panzer Dragoon Saga. The latter, natch, would have to be a remake, since the source code is AWOL.

* AM2 Collection, with Last Bronx, Virtua Fighter (Arcade + Remix modes), et al

* Saturn Collection, with Bug!, Bug! Too, Clockwork Knights 1-2, NiGHTS, and Christmas NiGHTS, Astal, and such

Wait... for the 360, could all that fit all on a single DVD-ROM? Hmm, let's see... each game's roughly 300-400MB on guesstimate, a DVD-ROM is about 9GB, plus room for emulation software tailored exclusively to the included titles, factor in that the audio and video would be enhanced with new codecs... closer to yes than no. But then again, I'm no expert.

WHO THE FU_CK CARES?? It's classic Genny games on the 360 (and PS3, but for the moment that doesn't concern me) made to look gr8 on an HDTV! Just STFU and enjoy the ride, but remember to keep your arms and legs inside the car at all times.

You're absolutely right but this is a wondrous announcement.

Classic "genny" games have been everywhere already. What are you so excited about? Whatever, kid. Enjoy your smeared pixels.

I don't see what's so great about upscaled Genesis games that could be emulated for free are being released in an expensive compilation.

If you are willing to pay for these games, why not go for the original carts instead?
