Here's one for all you Saturn fans out there: SEGA's "thinking" about porting its back catalogue of games to the PlayStation Network and Xbox LIVE Arcade download services.

We've already seen Mega Drive and Dreamcast games pop up on the next-gen download services. Saturn games, however, have been strangely absent.

"When you look globally the Genesis and Dreamcast are well known," explained SEGA's Yosuke Okunari to Japanese site Impress Watch (translated, as ever, by Andriasang).

"But Saturn is unknown. During that period, PlayStation and Nintendo 64 were a success overseas, but to be honest Saturn was not a success. Because of this, we decided on Dreamcast.

"What we announced this time is a project where we will have consecutive releases of titles that were debuted on Dreamcast. Separate from this, we're of course thinking about ports of Saturn games. It's the same as how SEGA Ages and Virtual Console were separate existences. It's not that we have no intention of porting Saturn titles, so please share your requests."

Radiant Silvergun, please.
