You read that correctly. Sega recently announced their mobile Genesis Ultimate Collection, and it feels like a Sonic-themed download service [Gizmodo via Technabob]:
Games will cost you between three and five dollars, and Sega plans to roll out more classic titles than the few already available through the App Store. Does anyone really want to play Genesis games on their iPhone? Touch controls might be okay for Shining Force, but I can see things going horribly wrong when you throw in Decap Attack or any of the brawling games available. Of course, the limitation of tilt and touch controls don’t seem to phase the homebrew developers building Nintendo 64 emulators for the device.
Look for the Genesis Ultimate Collection app in February. Gamers who pick this up will be rewarded with their very own digital copy of Space Harrier.
