SEGA Mega Drive classics hit XBLA

Gunstar Heroes! Sonic 3! Altered Beast. 

A big fat bundle of good old SEGA Mega Drive titles have appeared on XBLA.

As reported on by "e" on Major Nelson's blog, they cost 400 Microsoft Points each. That's GBP 3.40 / EUR 4.80 in the old money.

Topping the bill is Gunstar Heroes, followed by Sonic the Hedgehog 3 and Phantasy Star II. Or how about the graphic novel-inspired Comix Zone, ninjafest Shinobi or not very good Altered Beast?

E recalls how he spent a lot of time in "college" playing on his "Genesis", because of course the Mega Drive was never released in America and they don't have universities. What was your favourite waste of time in the early nineties, readers?
