THE BUZZ: The Dreamcast may be gone, but it’s not forgotten, and Sega has been proving that by resurrecting some of its top titles from the company’s final hardware platform. The next two chapters in those efforts—SEGA Bass Fishing and Space Channel 5 Part 2—will both hit PSN on October 4th for $9.99 US (or £6.29/€7.99/AUS$12.95), and then XBLA the following day on October 5th for 800 MS Points. Also of note: The PSN version of SEGA Bass Fishing will fully support PlayStation Move.

EGM’s TAKE: As much as I love the Dreamcast and the games it featured, I haven’t been overly impressed by Sega’s efforts so far for these releases. Also, if you’re an Xbox 360 owner, you can get the Dreamcast collection—which has both of these games as well as Sonic Adventure and Crazy Taxi—for less than the price of these two new XBLA releases.

Release dates confirmed for SEGA Bass Fishing, Space Channel 5 Part 2

The next two titles from Sega's efforts to resurrect games from their gone-but-not-forgotten Dreamcast will be coming our way soon on Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network.
