Remembering the Visual Memory Unit

One of the most tragic elements about the premature death of the Dreamcast was the fact that the console was so far ahead of its time in so many ways. It featured VGA output and was the first console to make 3D look good. While the Xbox was just a cool name for vaporware, Halo was a Mac title, and while broadband was a luxury nobody had, we were all able to play Daytona USA and Phantasy Star Online via Sega-Net on 56k. The Dreamcast was the perfect mix of old school sensibility and new school vision, but one thing that Sega got definitely nailed ahead of anybody else was their method of saving games. Upon first opening the Dreamcast box and seeing the controller, my first thought was that of bewilderment. Why was there a giant hole in the already ginormous controller? That's when I discovered the magic of the Visual Memory Unit. Read More

Top Spin 4 Announced

2K Games announced today that Top Spin 4 will come out the Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii in 2011. It will introduce major changes from the previous game, but 2K made no mention of motion controls for the HD versions. Top Spin 4 will retain the franchise’s dedication towards creating a deep, realistic tennis experience as opposed to Sega’s arcade-oriented Virtua Tennis series. “Top Spin 4 is shaping up to be the most realistic and exhilarating tennis game in the Top Spin franchise,” said 2K president of product development Greg Thomas. 2K also promises one of the deepest player rosters yet which will include both contemporary and classic athletes – one of which will be a pre-order bonus at GameStop. The big changes coming to this entry are in the controls and the development behind the game. Read More

Move Compatible Virtua Tennis 4 Announced for PS3

Sega revealed Virtua Tennis 4 on the PS3 today at Gamesom in Cologne, Germany. The game will be compatible with PlayStation Move and feature 3D. Sega showed off a brief playtest of the game at Gamescom. According to IGN what Sega showed was rather simplistic and early – not unlike Wii Sports Tennis with automatically-controlled characters. This will actually be the second motion-controlled Virtua Tennis game after the Wii version of Virtua Tennis 2009 which was one of the first games to use the Wii Motion Plus (and the nunchuck with which to control the players). However Virtua Tennis 4 turns out, it seems that this game will start anew with its motion controls. Read More

Leaked SEGA Document Describes Game Line-Up, Motion Control Date, and PSN Imports

It appears that the SEGA-Sony document which was leaked earlier today ("allegedly," Kotaku notes) was a doozie. In addition to the talk of PlayStation 2/Dreamcast games on the PlayStation 3, it seems that the document was a veritable treasure trove of other information as well. Kotaku reports that the document, now removed from its home at Objectif-Sega, "covers everything from Aliens and Bayonetta to Sonic and something called Vanquish." That's quite a bit of ground, as they clarify that "every major Sega game is mentioned in the document, often with details that appear to be either upcoming plans or at least ideas about what would the companies might pursue."

Sumo Digital Panel for Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing

The international Sonic convention known as "Summer of Sonic '09" was held last weekend, and in attendance were none other than Steve Lycett and Travis Ryan of Sumo Digital, who serve as the Executive Producer and Lead Designer, respectively, on the upcoming SEGA racing game Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing. And not only did they attend, but they also hosted a panel in which a number of questions about the title would be answered, hopefully sating peoples' curiosity for just a little bit. Read More
