Sonic Adventure
Dreamcast To Be Reborn on PSN

Rising like the proverbial phoenix from the flames, SEGA's ill-fated, but awesome, ahead-of-its-time Dreamcast is set to make a comeback via digital downloads on the PlayStation Network, starting with Sonic Adventure and Crazy Taxi.

As you'd expect, the plan is to retain the classic gameplay that made the games so popular in the first place, while adding enhanced visuals, surround sound, online leaderboards and of course, brand new trophies.

"There are few things that are more requested from us than making Dreamcast classics available for download in today’s digital market place. We’re very excited to begin offering gamers our beloved Dreamcast titles again on the current console systems," said Haruki Satomi, VP of Digital Business at SEGA of America and SEGA Europe.

Sonic Adventure will be the very first Dreamcast title to make the jump to PSN in autumn 2010 and will be on display at E3.

It will be interesting to see what road they take with the trophies for these. Will it be full-blown plats, or like most other PSN games with ~300 points worth of trophies. Or they could go the way of the ps1 classics with no trophies at all.

I still have my DreamCast (somewhere) but I'm MEGA excited for this. SA and SA2, day one purchases.

Pick up Crazy Taxi as well. Skies of Arcadia is one games I always wanted, hope they get that as well.

Chu Chu Rocket, Sarge's Hereos, Worms, SO many others, and a lot are already on PSN as classics...

Excited as hell right now.

I do hope they do retail-games worth trophies. Technically, they are retail games (well... so were PS1 games, and those don't have any at all).

But I can't see them not having any trophies at all, since technically games are required to have trophies now. Classics are probably exempt because they run differently than most PS3/PSN games, and they can be played both disc and download.

Sonic Adventure???? I soo loved that game back in the days when a friend of mine had a Dreamcast... So going to pick that one up!

Other than that I'm not that informed when it comes to Dreamcast games but I hear a lot of good things about Skies over Arcadia (or something like that) and of course Shenmue...

Dreamcast was an excellent console way before is time... can someone have the brillant idea to have Code Veronica on PSN... Dreamcast version was way out there as one of the best game ever!

Nice!!! I used to love playing the dreamcast back in the day and those two games were sweet!!! I only played the demo for the sonic, but I freaked out a little when that whale popped outta nowhere, lol. (as shown in the pic) and crazy taxi was cool too. =) So many other different games I'd really like to see from dreamcast onto psn!!!

Excellent news. Lots of classic games on Dreamcast but I`m guessing it`ll only be first party Sega games so that`ll limit the list quite a bit and I`ll wait until they announce prices. If they go with £9.99 like Afterburner Climax then I`ll certainly be very choosy with which I`d download even if they`ve been updated to HD. Sega GT, Sega Rally, Daytona USA, Jet Set Radio, Crazy Taxi and hopefully Ikaragua all in HD would definitely get me looking though. Maybe House of the Dead using PS Move too? Now there`s a thought....

Since they're full length games, I'd hope they put in Platinums. I mean, Sonic Adventure is actually a fairly long game, and it'd suck if it only had say 15 trophies. I have Adventure DX for Gamecube, but if it has a lot of trophies and a platinum I'll be sure to buy it again! I love the game, and I might actually have fun getting the Platinum! I'm hoping for Sonic Shuffle, cos I never got to play it!!

Great news.... Phantasy Star Online is a Sega owned game correct? Granted PSO Ep 1&2 for GC/Xbox absolutely destroys vanilla PSO I'd take the regular version of PSO with achievements.. If they released any version of it with the last of the online additions they had and sold it for $50 w/ no online fee it'd be day one purchase for me.Catch could be "buy it and dont pay online fee but what you get is what you get".

I've got a better plan for SEGA: Just make a brand new console, and re-release all your shitty games on that. This way, we won't have to waste perfectly good Playstation Store and Xbox Live Arcade update days on your junk that nobody wanted to play the first time around.

Poor Sega Dreamcast. :( Saved up all summer as a teenager, lawnmowing in order to buy one. Was a loyal SEGA costumer since the Master System. It'll be a nice mix of nastalgia to see the retro Dreamcast games again. Hopin' for plats... :/

Am I missing something? Why is everyone asking for Jet Set Radio? The title for the Dreamcast was Jet Grind Radio. And yes, I'd be ecstatic if that ended up coming to PSN with Plat. It would be tight to have Jet Set Radio Future as well, but that was a xbox only title.

Never owned a Dreamcast and barely played it, but I will be interested to see what games they put on the PSN. I'm pretty sure the article I read on IGN said there would be trophies for all releases.

They better have COde Veronica in there.
One of my all time favorites games.

IF it doesnt have plat ill still play it for the 100%
And taxi would be hard for the 100% if you ever played it you would know what kind of trophies they throw out there.

Hoping for a protable chao garden on the psp! Since the DC versions used the VMU and GC versions used the GBA. I have just always been a big Chao fan.
And of course, theres a ton of other DC games I would Love to see on PSN. Sonic Adventure is an instant buy for me. But never got in to the Crazy Taxi games. And I really hope they have Trophies
