Sega Vintage Collection

From Sega Retro

technically the Sega Vintage stuff dates back to at least 2007 - all the Mega Drive Sonic titles on XBLA have the Sega Vintage branding. They're just probably named wrongly on Sonic Retro.

There's Golden Axe and Streets of Rage games in this series too, just that nobody took any notice until an English Monster World IV made the news. So yeah - if it's a Mega Drive game on XBLA (and maybe PSN) it'll be part of this series -Black Squirrel 10:40, 4 April 2012 (CDT)

Yeah and another thing - many of these ports were done by Backbone Entertainment for (presumably) Sega of America. So rather than be Sega Ages Online games being localised, it'll likely be the other way around - the west supplying Japan, as opposed to the stuff by Rutubo Games which was Japan supplying the west -Black Squirrel 11:04, 4 April 2012 (CDT)
Not having XBLA, I didn't know that... As for Sega Vintage coming first and this being Backbone-produced, we'd have to wait and see when the games do get released, as they're still not out yet. Backbone's site appears to not have been updated since 2010. I was going to say split the pages but I guess that can wait a bit - Andlabs 11:06, 4 April 2012 (CDT)

for the record

XBLA Vintage Collection games

genuinely don't know what the PSN situation is. Some of these games were released for PSN under the vintage brand... not sure if all of them were. -Black Squirrel 13:01, 4 April 2012 (CDT)

If these collections AND the PS3 standalone releases are indeed M2 (their site hasn't been updated since last November), I guess now the only question is which came first, the Sega Ages Online idea or the planned localizations... but we knew that at least the Wii Monster World IV was announced for a while. I could split the articles with these older ones going into Vintage Collection and making a note that Sega Ages Online was localized in that series... - Andlabs 10:15, 5 June 2012 (CDT)
