Well, it's from XBLA marketplace so there's no reason for them to announce a PSN version. :P

Plus Sega hasn't actually announced this yet. I'll be shocked if this doesn't come to PSN.

Arcade Monster Land isn't up on VC yet, but both it and MW4 are coming.

Nothing much to worry about. M2's existing ports all have good controller customization.

You can already get the entire mainline series of both games on the Mega Drive/Genesis Collection, bar SF3.

Also considering they went to the trouble of doing this:

Already own it and beat most of them.

So I guess you make a good point, I kind of like the DD side of old games though.

Yes but they're Backboned.

Sega moving to M2 for the Vintage stuff is a victory for all.

The PS2 collection will ultimately contain better ports for SDTV owners (albeit without English MW4), and there's also the whole Dragon's Trap thing.

Yeah, it's a little weird Dragon's Trap isn't in. It's better than Monster Land or Monster World imo.

Wow, I recall them announcing Monster World IV aaaages ago, I assumed they had forgot all about it. Never expected them to do a triple pack like this though, darn!

Sega are absolutely rocking with their XBLA/PSN ports as of late. Daytona USA, Sonic CD, soon Virtua Fighter 5, Jet Set Radio and House of the Dead 4 and now this too? Phew!

I'm assuming that they decided to scrap off the Backbone-style porting (individual releases for $4.99) and rather went for a proper and decent porting, thus missing the late 2011 time-frame release? I wonder what happened to the rest like Super Hang-on and Shinobi.

Probably more Vintage Collections.

I'm expecting Virtual Console will still see the individual releases (like Japan).

That's Dragon's Trap, the 2nd game in the series and the only one not in the Vintage Collection. If you really want it the game's on the PS2 Sega Ages Complete Collection though and also on Wii Virtual Console (2 versions!).

Why does it say "now available" in the blurb, did this accidentally get published?
