141w ago - Sega Digital Campaigns Manager Mike Kebby has announced today that Mega Drive Classics are coming to Sony's PlayStation Network.
To quote: So I'm not going to pretend that this is news to you as it's already been announced that we have six Mega Drive titles - Classics, if you will - coming to PS Plus users for free.
Did you know however, that non-subscribers will also be able to get hold of them too?
Starting with the well loved Sonic the Hedgehog, which is coming to you via PlayStation Store this Wednesday 30th March, to then be followed over the next few months by five more titles. Those other five titles you may well ask? Well, they would be Sonic 2, Streets of Rage 2, Golden Axe 2, Altered Beast and Comix Zone.
At the moment we've got a release schedule in place, and unless some unruly badniks get into the system and damage our code, you can expect the titles to release as follows:
• Sonic 2 - free for PS Plus users on April 6th, released onto PS Store on April 20th
• Streets of Rage 2 - free for Plus users on May 4th, released onto PS Store on May 18th
• Golden Axe 2 - free for Plus users on June 1st, released onto PS Store on June 15th
As yet we can't confirm the release dates for Altered Beast and Comix...
