I love Sega, hell I own all of the excellent MD games on Steam. Yet if this is just more Genesis games than I won't be using it.

They did some similar in Sonic Classic Collection hiring Stephan Dittrich: http://info.sonicretro.org/Sonic_Classic_Collection

This is not SEGA directly it's a subsidiary and I've already mentioned how they wronged us.
Although maybe they are just not using our stuff...

That's surprising, didn't expect Saturn.

Didn't see this, seems like this could be really shady.

Sega should make an Android console that comes with a subscription to Sega Forever.

We know mobile is a big part of it if not "it" for now, but I am certainly hoping it can be the launchpad for something much greater.

Saturn and Dreamcast? Awesome, but this has to be for more than mobile. Hope there's more news confirming so soon.

the more this goes on the more I'm convinced it's a "we're listening to the fans, here's another Genesis compilation" thing

Seriously hope this is for more than mobile, otherwise it's a missed opportunity IMO. Sega Forever as a concept sounds potentially awesome, but it has to come to more than mobile.

Hope to see more details in the coming days.

emulated ports on mobile = meh

But if actual care went into a huge list of games from their entire history and was released on PC via subscription... I'd be into it.

Ok simple googling reveals that this is the end to Phantasy Star II. Guess that game is confirmed for whatever this thing is.

Or its just be some streaming service like PS Now?

SEGA made two of my favorite RPGs of all time - Phantasy Star 2 and Skies of Arcadia.

Phantasy Star 2 is amazing.

Phantasy Star 2 is amazing.

Ignoring whatever this service turns out to be - what's the best way to play PS2? I've always wanted to give it a shot - I've heard the story and setting is bonkers and supremely ambitious, which is right up my alley. Does it truly hold up even today?

For reference, my favorite RPGs ever would be FFIX and KOTOR - both because of their amazing worlds and stories.

For me, that alone ^ would be the make or break for the service.

Sounds interesting, as long as it isn't only for mobile. If games from ALL their consoles and arcade releases will be available on this service, then this would be a dream come true.

Don't screw this up, Sega!

Nah the biggest fuck you was making all the Whitehead Sonic remakes other than Sonic CD mobile only.

What a goddamn waste that was.
