Where's My HD Collection?

#1 Posted by The_LMFAO_Guy (192 posts) -

Do you know where it is?
 
I would like to have a HD collection of two games - one of them I consider to be one of my most favorite game. It'd be a good way to try to get Sega to make another sequel, hopefully a true sequel to the original I mean that second game was just a retelling of the first (no hate for the second game though), if the HD collection sells well enough. 
 
Even though I already own the first two games, the thing that can get me interested is the deluxe version of the original game that never came out in America (It only came out in Japan and Europe), and I'm an American. Sometimes I think that you British people get everything nice =(. It has to be the deluxe version of the game and not the original US version or Sega can suck it. 
 
What are your thoughts?

They'd rip out all pf the original songs. Look at Crazy Taxi.

JSRF isn't a port? I thought they were both the same games.

Edit: Yeah, checked the wiki, and JSRF is a remake, so why would they release a HD collection of both. Releasing an updated JSRF for $15 on XBLA and PSN would be good.

I think digital only release would be good enough.

Give me a new Jet Set Radio on the Vita or something!

I only played JSRF, but from what I saw of the quick look, both play pretty differently with the tagging mechanics. The levels, while still in Tokyo, are completely different it seems, with JSRF being in the future and all and JSR being present day. So I'd say it is most definitely a sequel and not a port.

They are different games. With that said, Bring JSRF to the modern age, for the love of god!

It's a retelling, not a sequel. I believe one of the developers of JSRF even said that. If you ever get to play the first game, you'll notice that the story is pretty similar to JSRF, it even ends on a similar note. Also, a good chunk of the music of JSRFare remixes of music from the first game. 
 
An HD collection is a better route to take in my own opinion, I want both games. I just want that to sell well in order to spark interest for a direct sequel to the original. And please, no shady deals, I just want a good value.

From what I read, it says that it came out in Japan and Europe. The deluxe version has four added music tracks and supposedly that the controls are improved.

I can't see that happening.

There were some screenshots a couple of years ago of Jet Set Radio on XBLA, but it seems they never got around to putting it out.
