This made my day

So a while back, I was browsing PSN, surprised by how many old arcade games had finally been ported but I never noticed before. And I got to wondering why Sega hasn't offered up more of their back catalog from Genesis and arcade.

Turns out the answer to my prayers is the Genesis Collection for PSP. Must be transferred from PS3 to Vita but works great! And look at this game list:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sega_Genesis_Collection

Ecco 1&2, Sonic 1&2, Altered Beast, Golden Axe 1-3, Phantasy Star 2-4, Vector Man 1&2...pretty solid for $10. Certainly beats Nintendo's piecemeal NES games for $6 a pop.

Anyway, nothing new, but it can be played on Vita, so I'm happy.

I wish Vita had an Arcade section similar to XBLA.

The Simpsons
X-Men Arcade
Capcom Arcade Games
SkullGirls
Sega Arcade Games
Dust An Elysian Tale
Tony Hawk
SNK Arcade Games
Mark of the Ninja
And so On.

I guess I gotta pick that up just for the early phantasy star titles. I never played anything before PSO. they were turn based no?

They're very traditional JRPGs with turn-based combat. Phantasy Star 4 is my personal favourite.

If only the Shining Force games were there. Alas, they are not, and I haven't a PS3 on which to play. Plus I'd rather just play them portably anyway.
There's always the GameGear one on the 3DS, though.

I think most of those are also on PSN's arcade selection, playable on PS3 but not transferrable to Vita unfortunately.

What I really wish this collection had is Eternal Champions, especially if it were EC Sega CD.
