They should take some time and adjust this game instead of copy and pasting. Sonic Adventure is a lot like Mario 64: Revolutionary for its time and a great game still...but definitely showing its age in terms of interface.

They should definitely re-mix the audio, cut out/improve the station square portion of the game, and add in some online multiplayer.

If they don't do at least a few improvements, I think they'll be wasting an opportunity.
The PSTV is amazing.

The Dreamcast version had it's share of flaws and glitches too. People just seem to view that particular version of the game through rose-tinted glasses.

All launch titles tend to have their fair share of glitches though. Look at Super Mario World and Mario 64! Glitch-tastic!

Sonic Adventure was the first game I bought on my Dreamcast. I really enjoyed it, by todays standards it may look dated and old, but then what game that is over 10 year old doesn't?

You don't believe everything you see on youtube, do you? That video is an emulator running a hacked ROM. Until I see those glitches happen on a real console--running a legit copy of the Super Mario World cartridge--I don't believe any of those glitches are real.

The invisible yoshi glitch is real, you can only do it in one level. Eating a pressed power switch makes it not pressed anymore, this happens in any level with yoshi and a power switch. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0pYopu5g ... re=related As far as the others I'm not sure what else is possible on original hardware.
