Rumor: Dreamcast games coming to a console near you

PS2, Dreamcast Games May Come to PSN, Says Allegedly Leaked Doc – Sega – Kotaku

Looks like the future of downloadable games is good. According to Kotaku, PS2 games and Dreamcast games may be coming to the Playstation Network in the form of downloadable content.

Ten years after the release of the Dreamcast it still has it’s gaming legs, coming to the PSN is big. Of course the return of PS2 games is also big. Will this finally allow gamers to install their PS2 games into their PS3s and play them? Since the removal of the backwards compatibility, it has been a tough choice for gamers who still want to play their old games. Let’s face it, the PS2 is the best selling console of all time. Though it may be eclipsed by the Wii in a few years, there’s still a lot of PS2 games out there.

The Dreamcast may be ten years old but the games still hold up today. If my Dreamcast was still working I’d like to play Shenmue and Chuchu Rocket on it again. If Sony is serious about this, I’ll be one of those who will be buying all those games all over again.

Rumor mongering

Phantasy Star Portable Information Overload news from 1UP.com
Rumor: Shenmue On Wii, Anyone? Anyone?

Let the rumors begin!

The first story is not exactly a rumor. The next installment of Phantasy Star will be on the PSP. Wouldn’t it be great if you can actually have an MMO on your handheld and if you don’t, you can always play the single player game. Much like one of the first (if not ground breaking) MMOs on a console and that being the Dreamcast.

Will Shenmue actually make the light of day? Now this is really a rumor. I have a copy of Shenmue on the original Dreamcast and missed Shenmue II on the Xbox (which I regret). So news of this game coming out really has me very excited. But based on how earlier incarnations of this series ended up, I highly doubt it will actually come out. But I’d like to be wrong on this one.
