Hey guys, remember the Sega Genesis? Now you can remember it EVEN HARDER! The Sega Genesis Classics collection is coming to Playstation 4 and Xbox One on May 29th. You can pick up either the digital version or a physical copy, just in case your taste in games reflects your willingness to adopt new technology. The physical copy, in addition to being the way these games were meant to be owned, comes with a sweet Golden Axe/Streets of Rage double sided poster.
If you don’t feel like waiting (or you don’t have a console), you can already pick up the collection for PC through Steam.
There are some cool games in this collection, even for people who don’t have their vision clouded by rose colored glasses. Stuff like Sonic the Hedgehog, Space Harrier, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Streets of Rage, Sonic 3 & Knuckles, and a whole lot more. There’s 50 games in this collection all told, which is pretty nuts.
Admittedly I don’t know what the PC sales have been like to date, but there are only 643 reviews on Steam in the 8 years the software has been out. It seems quite brave of Sega to release content from a console that simply didn’t do that well. I respect them for this decision, because it probably won’t make them a lot of money.
If that trailer doesn’t pull on your nostalgia and make you wish you were a kid again, this might not be the collection for you. But you have to admit, the music is pretty jazzy.
