Dreamcast, PS2 Games Re-Released Over PSN?


image Notes from Sega’s quarterly meeting with SCEA also brought up the possibility of Dreamcast games coming to PlayStation Network and perhaps other consoles.


The minutes state “if we [Sega] provide a list of DC titles SCEA will let us know which ones they’re interested in having exclusively.” The exclusivity bit may mean Dreamcast titles could come to other digital platforms like Xbox Live.


Another bullet point titled “PS2 emulator for PS3 (confidential)” describes SCEA’s plan to sell all PS2 titles over PSN. This sounds similar to their PlayStation Classics plan where PsOne games are sold digitally even though the PS3 can play PS1 discs.


Since PS2 games are readily available, I’m not too crazy about the idea of downloadable PS2 games unless we get access to imports via the rumored import store. But, there are a ton of excellent Dreamcast games that like Power Stone, Segagaga, and Shenmue 1 / 2 that I would like to see. Interestingly, Sega re-registered trademarks for a slew of Dreamcast games in North America including Jet Grind Radio, Cosmic Smash, and Chu Chu Rocket.
