Hey Sega, maybe you fix Sonic The Hedgehog 1 and 2 first, include Retina Icon support, iPhone 5 support.... and you know iOS 6 support so it actually works

True, but in this case it has a lot to do with reality.

Stock prices also reflect the market's expectations on that company; which, of course, has a lot to do with past, present and future revenue, e.g., RIM's stock behavior.

Just want to say I enjoyed way more the Simpsons version of Crazy Taxi for the game cube. It was so much fun. Those were the days.

Original soundtrack

If it has the original soundtrack, this is an easy purchase. Even though I have all of The Offsprings stuff on iTunes, it isn't the same as having bits and pieces of them playing in the game at the right moments.

However, I'm not hopeful given other ports have had the original soundtrack missing...

If the game's coming out this month, you'd expect they'd have more than 2 seconds of available footage, and maybe more than just one car and no pedestrians or street 'furniture' in the scene.

Having said that, I'd welcome many of the classic Dreamcast titles onto my iPad/iPhone.

----------

This is more like it - 3 minutes of iOS gameplay.

I loved this game on dreamcast, but I think and iOS version is going to suck more than some of the ladies on Sunset Blvd back in the day. It's just one of those games that demands a physical controller. I wish companies would stop digging up classic games from another era and create something designed for iOS. Far too little of this going on.

Also - how come there is yet to be one decent baseball game? Every other major sport is covered, but all we have from baseball are home run derbys and such. Nothing like MLB '12.

True. Especially in this era of quantitative easing.

Truth!

I still listen to the soundtrack.

Granted a physical controller is usually better but Jet Grind Radio would work great on iOS because of the way you create graffiti (unlike Jet Set Radio Future which really ruined the graffiti).

My Dreamcast eventually died so it's been a while since I fired up that, Shenmue, Crazy Taxi, Soul Calibur (thankfully my PS2 still worked for Street Fighter III and Marvel vs. Capcom 2).

I can't wait for this, but hugely disappointed it isn't in iPhone 5 resolution.

Still, assuming the price isn't too high, I can guarantee this makes it to the #1 spot in the App Store.

My only worry is whether SEGA will be good enough to make the game run at full resolution on the new iPad. I don't want to play a pixelated piece of crud.

To think though, I once paid 70 for the Japanese copy of this game.

How times change.
