    The sale will run through this week and will be ending on Saturday, December 8th, 2012. Drop by the comments and let us know what you pick up!

      It appears that most of these can be activated and downloaded through Steam, so I've added that to the story. Picked up the Genesis pack (can confirm that the entire 5-series pack is Steam compatible), as that was definitely a no-brainer for 5 bucks.

      All the SEGA classics actually load through a single application that lets you scroll through the whole collection, save, load, etc. Works with an Xbox 360 PC controller and supports up to 2 players. Also seems to scale to widescreen on all the games I've tried. Pretty nice!

      Just a word of warning. Sonic Adventure DX is broken if you use any gamepad that's not the 360 controller. The camera will spin around automatically.

      This is cool and all, but I'd love to get all this on PSP or iOS. That's all I get around to using these days. I would especially love for them to port the Phantasy Star Generations 1 & 2 (remakes of I & II) to either. Have them both for PS2, but never any time to play at home. Usually play stuff on the go.
      And yes, I'm aware of all titles already available on iOS. Just wish there were more variety. NiGHTS and SA2 (and one could only dream of Sonic Heroes... Yes, I love that game. So what?) would be nice, too.

      Actually, the Genesis Ultimate Collection has four Phantasy Star games. The first one is an unlockable game. I know this because I have the UGC.

      I'm not sure if it's the same with this pack, as this is not quite the same collection as Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection for the PS3 and 360. I believe that collection had around 40 games with 8 or 9 unlockables and the original Phantasy Star was unlocked by beating the first boss in Sonic 2 with two players. This collection doesn't even have Sonic 2 in it.

      Oh, and by the way, Legend of Oasis rocks and is better than Beyond Oasis. So why didn't they throw that in somewhere?
      Oh, NM, this doesn't seem to be a Saturn-friendly sale.
