Jet Set Radio Coming Soon To XBLA? (Rumour)
I think it should be pointed out to some that Jet Set Radio was released in the U.S. as Jet Grind Radio, just so there is no confusion on that.
Also also...Quake Arena? As in "Quake III is coming to XBLA"? FUCKING BOSS!!!
Also also also...where the fuck is this picture from that someone already has an achievement-ridden Sonic 4 Ep. 1?!?!?!
WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON?!

I consciously choose to use the Japanese and European name in the title. I'll point that out in the OP though.
Quake Arena was announced a little while ago, I've posted one or two images in the forum.
Quake has been rumoured for a very long time.. Doesn't seem like it's ever coming, though this is encouraging news.
We've known a whole bunch of Dreamcast games were coming too, Sonic Adventure, Crazy Taxi, etc.
But Jet Set Radio would be frikken amazing, easily one of my favourite games ever.
All we need now is Skies of Arcadia and the Shenmue games to be announced and hopefully at least some of these can sell well enough on here to show Sega that sequels wouldn't be totally unprofitable!
I wish they would just make a new one. People have been clamoring for a new Jet Set game for a long time, I think it's about time Sega delivered. But knowing how well Sega has been running their company lately with the whole Bayonetta and Yakuza 3 thing, if it did come out I'm sure they would do something stupid like take out graffiti.
" @Aeterna said:You bring up a fair point, since it was also big on there." Quake on a console? Oh god... that totally defeats the point of everything quake. JSR? Nice for you 360 users then. *pats his dreamcast* "You seem to forget Quake III was also available on DC. "
But for me personally, the PC is the only platform for Quake. I wasted so many years editing and perfecting that config, playing clanwars, training strategies and the like that it's unreal.

Id not mind I loved JSRF, I never played the original, Id love them to remake JSRF for the 360 or ps3 or both with online and such and more challenges....JSRF is the type of game that needs about 500 different achievements since you can do so much crap in that game.
I play the Dreamcast one frequently actually, at least five or six times a year. My last playthrough of it was about two months back, and I still loved the shit out of it. You have to look at it as a glorified arcade game, though, to see the lasting value.
" I wonder how that game's gonna hold up...I remember having tons of fun with it, but also that the last boss was a MASSIVE pain in the ass. "
Also, did someone say Crazy Taxi was coming to XBLA? That would fucking RAPE! I can only imagine the kind of achievements that would be on it!!! Plus, OFFSPRING SOUNDTRACK!!! Hopefully, they could enhance it a little in the graphics, as well as add more Offspring songs, like "Come Out Swinging", "End of the Line", "Hammerhead", and some other nitro-fueled badassery!!!
As for Quake Arena...oh, it's fucking ON, muthafuckers!!! I NEED MY QUAKE 3!!!
@Aeterna: Quake III Arena on Dreamcast, as well as Unreal Championship, both played incredibly well and VERY fast. It was definitely weird having only one analog stick back then, but now that we've got dual analogs, it should be pretty damn good in terms of feel. Even stuff like Unreal Tournament III and War World felt really good on 360 without sacrificing much of the speed.
But I agree - PC is the preferred platform. However, I want Quake III for EVERYTHING!!!
Also, all this Dreamcast game talk has me thinking that it's about time we got Soul Reaver and Shadow Man on XBLA as well, but more than anything...WE NEED POWER STONE ON XBLA!!!
" There were rumors going around that a couple of Dreamcast games are coming to XBLA. I just want to know that price of them. Hopefully no more then $20. "considering how much I loved Jet Set Radio Future and have always wanted to play Jet Grind Radio, I'll pay whatever they ask of me.
