Sega came clean about the console conversion of Outrun 2 today, confirming the game has been naturally ported from the Chihiro arcade board for Xbox, while making no mention of a PlayStation 2 version.
Private press screenings of the game are likely before E3, where Sega will show what looks to be a beautiful conversion on linked Xbox pods at the LA Convention Center.
Almost unbelievably handled by British outfit Sumo as a first project, the Ferrari-filled arcade classic will, according to Sega, feature full Xbox Live support, an "extensive" single-player mission mode and unlockable as yet undescribed elements.
The press has been chasing a console version of Outrun 2 for years. Rumours have bandied back and forth between Xbox and PlayStation 2 versions, with the traditional vigour shown by those blindly affiliated to anything Sega fully on display. Well, kids, there you are. We'll have our first impressions from the E3 show floor.
