RUMOR: SEGA Leaks Dreamcast PSN Plan
A new Sonic Blu-ray collection, and a Japanese import store also discussed.
by Jim Reilly

September 22, 2009 - A document detailing an alleged meeting between SEGA and Sony Computer Entertainment America has been discovered through an accidental leak on an open public relations server.

Spotted first by French website Objectif-Sega (via NeoGAF) the meeting, which supposedly took place on August 6 2009, highlights a number of ideas and goals SEGA is looking to implement on Sony's gaming platforms, including the possibility of bringing full Dreamcast titles to PlayStation Network, a new Sonic collection on Blu-ray, and a special Japanese import download store.

A SEGA spokesperson told IGN "no comment" on this leaked information.

Here are some of the highlights from the document:



Sony's motion controller is set for a March 2010 release date in Japan. SEGA is working with Sony on possible games to integrate motion controls, including Virta Tennis.


SEGA is looking to bring a collection of Dreamcast titles to PlayStation Network, saying they'll provide a list of games that Sony can then pick and choose to have exclusively first before, presumably, being released on Xbox Live.


Marked "confidential," Sony apparently wants to sell "all PS2 titles on PSN (GTA Vice City/Sonic/etc),"


A Bayonetta collector's edition is also in the works, which is to include an action figure. A demo for game is also discussed for around the December holiday, with the game's ship date currently planned for January 5 2010.


SEGA is considering releasing full Japanese games in a special import store on PlayStation Network, including the Yakuza series. These titles would be priced between $10 to $40, and could receive localized menus.


A new "Best of Sonic" Blu-ray disc, with all the old sonic games on one disc is mention. Possibly priced at $99. SCEA is interested in PSN exclusive modes and power ups.


It's possible none of this information comes to fruition, as this is, for now, unconfirmed. SEGA has some good ideas here. I'm sure fans hope they come true.
