Many of these games were also released on PC as the SEGA Genesis (Mega Drive) Classics Collection on Steam, which is comprised of 40 SEGA Genesis (Mega Drive) classic games.


    Sonic's Ultimate Genesis (Mega Drive) Collection features all the favorites including Sonic the Hedgehog, titles from the Phantasy Star series, as well as three titles from the Streets of Rage series, to name a few. The classic 2D style never looked so good! Each of the titles has been converted to hi-def (720p) for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
