For Crazy Taxi fans here:

Dreamcast fans on the PS3 and Xbox 360 will have a little something extra to be thankful for this November. A remastered HD version Crazy Taxi taxi will be available for download on Xbox Live Arcade and the PlayStation Network. This HD remake will feature 720p graphics, leader boards, trophy awards, and two game types; Arcade Mode and Original Mode. Classic features making a comeback include sixteen mini-games, the huge San Francisco-style hills for plenty of hang time, and deep-sea exploration opportunities.

Crazy Taxi will be available for download on the PS3 on November 23rd for $9.99 and the Xbox 360 November 24th for 800 Microsoft Points.

I hope they can keep the music, early press indicates the Offspring stuff is gone :(

Apparently, it is an entirely different soundtrack. Also, all the real store names are gone. That really sucks; I probably won't be getting it for that, and because I already own it on the Xbox, Gamecube, and Dreamcast.

I'll give it a miss in that case, unless it hit 400ms points and I'm bored

I'd pick it up just to somewhat support Sega, and I like the concept of Leaderboards.

What they SHOULD do is include custom soundtracks so we can put on the original soundtrack. Though for some reason it seems that they won't do that. Oh well.

The xbox version will support custom soundtracks by default. Sucks to be a Sony fanboy I guess.

I'm getting this no matter what. The only game I played more than this on my dreamcast was probably PSO or Shenmue.

I really don't see Crazi Taxi as a game that needs a remake, specially with all the sequals/spinoffs I believe it has

The original isn't even remotely dated

No, it just sucks to have a 360 but not able to get online because your ethernet cable isn't long enough and you're too stubborn to pay $100 for an adapter.

But I have Crazy Taxi on the Cube, Crazy Taxi 3 on the xBox, looking for Crazy Taxi 2 on the DC, so I'm probably going to pick this one up on the PS3.
