    Default Dreamcast Collection is out this week. Anyone picking it up?

    So it looks like there is a new collection coming out for PC and Xbox 360.

    Anyone out there picking it up?

    Not I. I still have my Dreamcast and all of these games.

    This is a very barebones collection of Dreamcast games that have been or will be ported to Xbox Live. There are no extras, Sonic Adventure is limited to its original 4:3 aspect ratio, Crazy Taxi is missing some of the music and sponsors used in the original, and playing Sega Bass Fishing without the fishing controller takes a lot of the fun out of that game.

    If Sega wants me to buy these games again they need to give me something - some behind the scenes/making of extras, upgrading the games to HD, and adding online play would have been nice.
    When you think you are a tough avenger, switch the difficulty to A, and then try Ultimate Yars!

    I just wish they would throw in some arcade versions, Crazy Taxi was great on the DC, but there was something different between the arcade version and the DC. Even after I got DC and CT I would still drop the coin to play at the arcade...

    I'll only pick this up if it goes cheap. The only reason being that I want to see Sega make more of these.

    I doubt that these are even Dreamcast ports, at least in the case of Sonic and Crazy Taxi ... I'm almost willing to bet they're ports of other ports. lol

    I have decided to boycott this for the sheer fact that they excluded Phantasy Star Online. It they remade that now, I know no less that 20 people that would buy it.They could host it on PSN and X-box Live. It would sell like bottled joy.

    Yup, I'd be there in a heartbeat. Man, I spend WAAAY too many hours on that game!

    Not a chance. If this was designed to appeal to us old farts after the rather good Megadrive Collection then I think it will fail.

    Saw it in EB Games yesterday and only four included games? I know a lot of the Dreamy's heavy hitters were by third-party developers, but it still isn't good enough.

    I still have my Dreamcast and the old girl still gets a lot of play, but would have picked this up for any added online features had it been a better package.
