    Default Sega Model 2 Arcade collection coming soon to xbla and psn

    I just read about this a few days, ago and thought some of you may be interested in the fact that sega is finally going to be releasing some of their model 2 arcade games from the 90s on xbla and psn at the end of 2012 and early 2013.

    so far it looks like sega will be releasing sonic the fighters, virtua fighter 2, fighting vipers, virtual on, virtua strikers all with online multiplayer along with 3 extra playable characters in sonic the fighters. I know i'm looking forward to these, is anyone else going to download any of these games?

    This is impressive. I know that several of the new characters were accessible through hacking but now we will see them officially. Either way this is great, glad to see a digital service worth investing in, as Virtual Console has been rather dead for a while. I did however enjoy every single purchase I made on PSN.

    We did have a thread on this I thought. Anyway, I think it's funny that they showed Saturn VF2 in the screenshots. I hope they don't get the actual games mixed up.

    We've been playing adequately emulated versions of those games for a while now. I'm still trying to figure out an optimal control scheme for Oratorio Tangram. I don't play it that often to warrant a twin stick pad and an adapter.. if only there's a cheap knockoff.

    It would be nice to have a VF anthology disc though.

    Is it true that ElSemi got hired by Sega? It seems we can kiss any Model 2 improvements on PC goodbye.. For shame.

    I'd prefer a big ass compilation disk but this can do.

    Such a bummer, theres still a couple of glitches with the PC model 2 emulator, particularly the sound being mixed incorrectly which Elsimi said he'd fix

    If only Sega would release this package for PC, I'd even settle for a Steam port!

    I have this hunch that once SegaSammy is split and ORBI is established, that SEGA has a large library of digital HD revamps for the Steam market planned, so I'd say, that Model 2 Collection getting the PC treatment is inevitable.
    SEGA is the Messiah of Console Gaming.


    In July 2013, Exactly 164 months after Dreamcast launched, something BIG will happen at SEGA. Which is "ORBI" the world.

    All the NAYSAYERS will be silenced forever when Orbi get's its "Notice of Allowance".

    I totally want Virtua Fighters 2, Fighting Vipers, and Virtual On. Now, where's Die Hard Arcade?

    Isn't Virtua On already available? It is on 360, im not sure about PS3.. Also Die Hard Arcade is not a Model 2 game. Its that Saturn-ish, STV board.

    Im pretty sure the virtual on for 360 is a port of virtual on: oratorio tangram for dreamcast, not the original virtual on.

    The Dreamcast port of VOOT had slowdown, but the Model 3 ran smooth as butter. I wonder which code was the XBLA game based on?
