Sega Genesis Collection Headed To PSN, Free For PlayStation Plus Members



More classic games are coming to the PlayStation 3 in the form of the Sega Genesis Collection on the PlayStation Network, which will go on sale at the end of March, with one title from the collection being released at a time.


While regular PlayStation Network users will have to pay $4.99 for each game, PlayStation Plus subscribers will be able to download each title for free, for a whole month after its release. Additionally, they’ll also get the games earlier than regular PSN users.
