Dreamcast Collection confirmed

But which games are in it?

SEGA plans to release a Dreamcast Collection "soon".

Confirmation comes from SEGA's executive vice president of sales and marketing Alan Pritchard, who told the January issue of Game Informer magazine that the publisher plans to bring some of its old Dreamcast games to market digitally and packaged.

"The Dreamcast fans are very devoted," he said. "You see on eBay people are still buying the games and system. We actually have a Dreamcast collection coming out soon. We are looking to bring some of the old Dreamcast games to market digitally and packaged. The titles are still to be announced. The Ultimate Genesis Collection did huge numbers on PS3 and 360, so it's an important part of our business. We've already been releasing some Dreamcast games digitally; Crazy Taxi [for one]."

In November US shop GameStop published a listing for a PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 title called Dreamcast Collection. The listing was subsequently pulled.

It did not offer any details about the collection, but it did mention a possibly placeholder release date of 15th February 2011 and a price point of $29.99. Which games would you like to see included?

Meanwhile, elsewhere in the Game Informer interview, Pritchard responded to a question about a possible Dreamcast 2. This is what he said in response: "Unless there's something I don't know – no one has told me about getting back into the console business."

For shame.
