Nice - I did the same thing with the Dracula X Chronicles and MLB The Show '11

I'm kind of intrigued with the Korean manuel and cover. $19.99 and free shipping. What am I missing here?

nothing I think. I'm pretty sure it was only $30 when it was first released anyway.

^ Amazon prices are crazy and some of the japanese ebay listings are really high for "new" copies so it give me a brief pause but, hey $19.99 is awesome.

Great Article! When I saw some of the titles and especially the Genesis Collection, I am tempted to get a PSP. You are killing me into buy more stuff! :oops: :lol:

TEKTORO wrote:Damn it have to buy a PSP again for numerous reasons besides your fantastic write up.

Also gotta get EA Replay it has Polterguy on it!!

Same here I am tempted to borrow my son's PSP and get some of the compilations! The ones that really intrigue me are Exclusive Arcade titles on a console or portable. Yes they can all be Mamed, but nice to get an exclusive version for the HD TV.

System Exclusives
This is the real draw to me for wanting to own yet another console or portable. For instance the PS2 Sega Genesis Collection has the Arcade Tac Scan which only appeared on the 2600 and PS2 consoles. The old Atari console doesn't quite capture the Arcade, but the PS2 version is very close to the Vector screen. Tac Scan is easily duplicated in controls on the PS2 with a Spinner with the right adapters. Looking over other unlockables the PSP version also have exclusives in the Genesis Collection, also easily playable on the HDTV with a cable.

:shock: Of note the Vector games to the PS2 and PSP each having unique exclusives, never appeared on any other console or portable! These even missed out appearing on the Vectrex.

Wiki wrote:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sega_Genesis_Collection#Extras

This collection also features more than thirty-five minutes of unlockable interviews from SEGA of Japan, a "museum" with facts about the games, strategy tips and cheat codes for each game, a "Sega Cheat Sheet" that consists of cheat codes for most games, and a set of unlockable arcade games, (some of which are from the early Sega/Gremlin era).

The PS2's unlockable arcade titles are:
Altered Beast (Arcade version) - Released in 1988
Future Spy - Released in 1984
Tac/Scan - Released in 1982
Zaxxon - Released in 1982
Zektor - Released in 1982

The PSP's unlockable arcade titles are:
Astro Blaster - Released in 1981
Congo Bongo (AKA Tip Top) - Released in 1983
Eliminator - Released in 1981
Space Fury - Released in 1981

Super Zaxxon - Released in 1982

Hey Wiki needs updated! I wonder what exclusive Arcades to PS3 unlockables are? :?:

After reading that...I REALLY want the Twinbee and Parodius collections. I've already got several of the listed compilations either on PSP or PS2..but those are the two I really need to import at some point. I'd also never heard of EA replay before now, and it's definitely on my get list. Very informative :)

Now to think about my first experience with tate was Galaga on the Namco Collection PSP,and Rolling Thunder is fun on that too.

@CRTGAMER-Not sure if there was any curiosity towards the 360 versions Sonics UGC (*Flicky Hd RULES!!) but the following are unlockables from that version.

SEGA Master System & Arcade unlockable games:

-Golden Axe Warrior
-Phantasy Star
-Alien Syndrome
-Altered Beast
-Congo Bongo
-Fantasy Zone
-Shinobi
-Space Harrier
-Zaxxon

Plus numerous interviews,just not sure from who off the top of my head.
