    Sega has dried the fuck out of the Mega Drive games with the re-releases they've done but what about Dreamcast games where are they? Why haven't Sega thought of releasing them (digitally, of course) on PS4, Xbox One and Wii U?

    Dreamcast is Sega's gold mine and they're doing absolutely nothing about it. If we take Nintendo for example, they had the GBA/NGC/SNES/N64 titles (NGC still yet to come) and only 'recently' have they started to get them out for the eShop.

    Come on Sega!

    Could be wrong here, but didn't they release some on XBL and PSN?
    Aren't they compatible with current gen consoles?

    I forgot
    Most of the Dreamcast library have already been ported to PS2/PC/XBLA/GC. I think out of the ~700 games the Dreamcast had, only 60 or so were and still are exclusives, and (IMO) Shenmue is the only one that matters that hasn't gotten a re-release or anything.

    Well, but in terms of a Dreamcast Collection like Mega Drive got it never happened, and that'd be ideal that buying around here and there.

    the only rereleases for PS4 are games that seem like they are still modern. Flower, TLOU, you can't tell that they're old.

    I say keep the rereleases on 7th gen.
    They remastered most of the good Dreamcast games on PS3 anyway.

    You mean like the one they did but with dozens of games? I assume that's not an easy task. There's probably things that they have to touch up and adjust when remastering the games and making them widescreen.

    I don't remember Shenmue being released for the 7th gen consoles though.

    So basically what you really want to know is "why aren't Sega port Shenmue to 8th gen consoles"?

    I guess they don't feel it would be profitable
