@Tasuki They aren't.

Sega sacked them off after the initial reveal and subsequent reaction.

Not sure who is contracted to handle the actual hardware, but at least M2 are reportedly heavily involved in the software - which can only be a good thing!

It would've been pretty easy just to slam a freely available emulator and a bunch of roms on to a basic 'off the shelf' SoC for this (like Nintendo and SNK did, and in fairness, the system isn't going to be particularly complex) - but Sega are at least finally looking like they care about the Mega Drive!

Also - the biggest issue with the AtGames stuff was always the Firecore emulator they used. It was trash, and better has been out there for a long time. Their hardware was always low quality too, though the little handhelds they did are fun little toys. Everything sounds really bad though!

With the recent news that NaughtyDog are shutting down the servers for their major PS3 games, my "someday I should return to the PS3 and buy everything I could possibly want before it's too late" feeling popped back up again yesterday. I've been meaning to go back and get the inFamous games anyway, but I used the moment to clear out the PS Store whilst online.

For just under £50 of PSN credit, I downloaded and installed:

Driver (PSone Classic)
The inFamous Collection (inFamous, inFamous 2 and inFamous: Festival of Blood)
Splinter Cell: Double Agent
Splinter Cell: Blacklist (Digital Deluxe Edition)
Lara Croft Avatars x6
Sonic the Hedgehog Avatars x2

I'd always steered clear of those two Splinter Cell games before; at first, because I heard that Double Agent doesn't run great on PS3, then because Conviction went Xbox Exclusive and then because Michael Ironside didn't voice Sam Fisher in Blacklist. But I figured the regret of never being able to play them would be worse than having those concerns realised, and I might play them before I play inFamous (which, if I like, will lead me to the PS4 for the sequels and therefore be a much bigger, more time-consuming undertaking).

Might also return with another £20 credit to nab the pair of Rainbow Six: Vegas games I saw on there, just because I was always kinda curious about them.

So that's basically my summer's gaming sorted.

The inclusion of Gunstar Heroes on the mini Mega Drive should make it an essential for everyone.

@Ralizah You can never own too much Gunstar Heroes. I already have it on the Wii and PS3. I was even on the global leaderboard for the game on PS3 at one point.

@Ralizah You get to play it with a much better controller

@RogerRoger Infamous was the first PS3 game I ever played back in 2009 when I first got one. Loved that game so much. I need to try the sequels eventually.

@SilentE Always good to hear another positive impression; I picked them up on the recommendation of a couple fellow PushSquarians, so any more just reinforces that I've made a good choice. Thanks!

Will post thoughts about the sequels as / when I get to them.

Bought the PlayStation Classic Mini with the Days of Play sale. For that amount you can't really go wrong. It has a lot of games I never even played back in the nineties.

Highlight so far: Ridge Racer. Runner-up: Intelligent Qube.

Would I recommend it? Never over the SNES Mini at least. I'll get enough fun out of it, though.

They have one in stock in the shop 3 minutes walk from where I work...

I just wanted you to know it's your fault if I stumble in to Cex and buy it

At least it's got a decent soundtrack... well, okay, at least it's got a soundtrack.

That looks a lot like how they thought True Lies would end up

Just bought Celeste on Switch. Been going back and forth trying to decide whether I want to buy this game or not but I finally went for it. I have high expectations for this game since I remember it getting a lot of perfect scores when it came out last year. Hopefully it will deliver!

Just ordered Katamari Damacy Reroll (Switch) from GameStop (I believe the physical version is a GS exclusive).

Never played one of these before, but I've heard good things.

@Knuckles-Fajita That's a lot of Spyro!

Where'd you snag the GameCube from? I'm in the market for a decent, like-new N64 but haven't found one I trust enough on eBay yet.
