Xbox to miss out on Chihiro duo?

OutRun2 and Virtua Cop 3 reportedly off the Xbox menu.

Sega has decided not to port Chihiro arcade titles OutRun2 and Virtua Cup 3 to Xbox. That's according to a report that originated in Japanese gaming magazine Dorimaga, in which a Sega insider claimed that the Xbox was not popular enough in Japan to justify OutRun2, and that a new light gun peripheral for Virtua Cop 3 would be prohibitively expensive to produce.

Fortunately, Xbox owners will be able to get their hands on a number of other Sega titles this year and next, including Worms 3D, Sega GT Online, Sonic Heroes and Headhunter: Redemption, all of which are coming to the console.
