I was just about to hold out on getting a Dreamcast, now I am probably going to look around for a Dreamcast and a copy of Jet Set Radio and Shenmue.

Will buy if true, though I greatly like Future better.. but both are "games of all-time" titles.

I would really like to see Sega give the go-ahead to Headstrong for their Wii Jet Set Radio, they hit a home run with House of the Dead: Overkill and I think they would do a great job. Though Wii remote use would probably move back to the original's graffiti style though (not a fan of the gestures after the way Future handled it).

Since there's been leaking of stuff like Sonic Adventure DX, and supposedly Crazy Taxi and/or Jet Set Radio, i suggest to wait a bit until this clears up.

The worst part (that I've seen so far; I've yet to beat it) is Highway Zero in the central area (with the huge structure that has dragon sculptures running around it that you can grind). That area is so big, and has so many NPC's walking around, that I always get major slowdown.

Anyway, I don't see why people are so quick to doubt this. The leaked Sega notes from last year confirmed that they're bringing over Dreamcast games to PSN and XBLA, obviously the big SEGA games -- two of which we've already seen: Sonic Adventure and Crazy Taxi. Jet Set Radio and Shenmue also fall into that group. And this guy, or someone he knows, clearly has PartnerNet access. Even if the screens are fake, and I don't think they are, you can bank on these games showing up.

I agree. Even though I think that dude's making stuff up, JSR and Shenmue II could very well be coming to the XBLA in the future.

I think that dude has access to PartnerNet but I also think that he's using what he finds on there to pass fake screen caps as real (like one fake screenshot in between two real ones).

If the screenshot is real, it's a placeholder image which will be replaced by something more professional for the final release. It's not unheard of, especially on PartnerNet.

I remember when Perfect Dark XBLA was leaked, its placeholder image was a blurry picture of the old Joanna's head, before they even redid the character model. Goldeneye XBLA's placeholder icon was an image of Joanna Dark from Perfect Dark Zero.

Well, in the case of Crazy Taxi there is more then just a dashboard screenshot.

http://digiex.net/digiex/front-page-...ake-arena.html

In fact, a few more Crazy Taxi XBLA screenshots popped up where the originals were leaked, including menu screen.

In a good company's hands? You'd have improved graphics running at an HD resolution in widescreen, along with achievements, online functionality (if applicable) and extra features not present in the original. Since I have never played Shenmue, I don't know what, if any, of these added features would be a benefit over the resolution jump.. but the framework to make a nicer product than a straight emulation is there.

they've more than proven that they have zero respect for their back catalogue.... after sonic adventure why do you think they are suddenly going to put any effort into Shenmue or JSR?

seriously... sega doesn't give a fuck about you, or your nostalgia. they don't even give a fuck about the value or their own IP.

The ports of Rez and VOOT are aces though.

But yeah, in general, you're right. Their track record indicates this would likely be trash, not treasure.

It's a setting thing. If games are set in Japan, or some fantasy world with tons of Eastern Asian cultural touches/influences or something, and if the characters are Japanese, I prefer JP voice acting to dubs every time. The reverse is true for MGS games, even if Hayter sucks and hearing Pearl from Spongebob as the voice of The Boss is jarring, to say the least.

Because it's JSR. Who gave a fuck about Sonic Adventure in the first place? Shit, who gave a fuck about Sonic after Sonic & Knuckles?

The Sonic Adventure thing illustrates how little care Sega can potentially not give to porting a game over, it doesn't have anything to do with how much Sonic games suck. See also: Sonic GBA, Sonic Collection DS, any Genesis game ported by Backbone, etc., etc.

SEGA just needs to do a SEGA classics pack at retail. Bundle up the SEGA GT/JSRF disc, the original JSR, and Shenmue I+II. Maybe some Chu Chu Rocket, etc etc.

I'd pay $50 to have it all on one disc.

I was dragged to a nerd convention recently, and I spent the entire time playing the Dreamcast version of Typing of the Dead over in a corner. Suddenly HOTD turns from a horrible quarter eater into a brilliant educational tool, thanks to the magical power of a keyboard/Dreamcast holster.

Some people would probably pay $50 each if they were updated classics. la God of War HD.

Uh...? It wasn't even $50 on Dreamcast.

What makes it worth that price as a downloadable title, especially since it would have no resale value, etc?

And, technically, GOW Collection was two games. Also, unless my memory is foggy, it wasn't anywhere near $50 either?

There's no way the final port would be released running at 480p. It was a work in progress. Are there even ANY sub-HD 3D XBLA games? I'm sure SEGA knows it would be utterly absurd (even for them) to release any Dreamcast ports at anything less than 720p.

Shenmue II is not on Xbox Originals at all. Not in Japan, not anywhere. The game is backwards compatible.

This post sums up how I feel:

I have hope, that if Sega is working on porting more Dreamcast games to PSN and 360 (as the leaked memo said they would, and their new digital distribution focus would seem to indicate) then they will get the treatment they deserve.

I like the English dub of Shenmue 1, but the dub for Shenmue II is just terrible. So many repeat voices, unable to ignore the Zhu Yuanda/Yuanda Zhu name screw up, no bad language, Yuan's a women....

There's a lot of reasons to hate the English dub and translation of Shenmue II. When playing the Dreamcast version, it's easier to pretend those flaws in the subtitles and the pitch of Yuan's voice are the way they are meant to be. Shenmue 1's voice acting is pretty lame compared to the best in the industry, but it's got a certain charm to it. Shenmue II's english voice acting runs out of charm very early on.

Good Eng dub > subtitles > bad Eng dub

That is the law.

PLEASE BE TRUE (although I'd prefer JSRF)

I haven't had access in awhile, but aren't there a lot of spelling mistakes in PartnerNet? I know it used to be a pain to update those things so people wouldn't bother until they had something important or were getting close to ship. Or is that line a standard gui string or something?
