SEGA Community Roundtable – Favourite SEGA Racers

Sunday, February 26th, 2012

Welcome to a new feature for SEGADriven.com; the SEGA Community Roundtable! In this feature we’ll be approaching certain members of the SEGA community to discuss different topics.

In our first roundtable we asked the community members what their favourite SEGA racing games were. Click here to be taken straight to the feature!

This was great fun to collate and I’d like to thank all the participants for donating some of their time to this feature!

Edit on 27/02/2012
Gavin Storey from Radio SEGA has submitted his piece to the feature. Check it again now to see what his favourite racer is!

Video Spotlight: Trailer Round-Up

Jet Set Radio Coming to XBLA and PSN

Thursday, February 23rd, 2012

Is a rather unexpected turn of events, SEGA have announced their next Dreamcast title to be ported to X-Box Live Arcade and Playstation Network will be Jet Set Radio. Check out the teaser trailer below:

So why is this unexpected? Well up until this point SEGA have been porting Dreamcast games that were already ported to PC as it appears to be easier. However, Jet Set Radio was never ported to the PC so this means SEGA have either developed an emulator that can run Dreamcast games on PS3 and 360 or they’ve actually ported it from the ground up which might mean we get improvements and added features.

All of this can only be a positive thing because if SEGA are willing to go to that effort to port Jet Set Radio then we might see other much loved Dreamcast games come to the service soon. Can I get a “Shenmue”? Amen brother!

SEGA, Capcom and Namco Bandai Working on New 3DS Project

Wednesday, February 22nd, 2012

There’s not a lot to say at the moment, but a Japanese teaser site has revealed that SEGA, Capcom and Namco Bandai are teaming up for a new 3DS project. The only information regarding the project so far is the bare-bones teaser website which you can access via this link: CLICK HERE

Not really a lot to go on, is it? Something tells me we aren’t going to hear much else about this title until the Summer (E3 most likely) as well, but we’ll update you on any news regarding this extremely interesting project as we get it.

WaterMelon Games have opened a new website called Magical Game Factory.
