    First things first: Sega should optimize their Genesis emulator for smooth performance on iDevices. Adding bluetooth multiplayer modes to multiplayer games would be my second suggestion.

    The first post's quote should really have "it has to be a Sega game, meaning no other publisher’s titles, even if they did appear on our old systems" in bold or a larger font. You know people will not read that otherwise... then again...

    Exactly. :D:D:D

    I think that is pretty much self assumed. No need to bold that out.

    I second this! That game would work great on the iphone... but of course it would have to be remade and not emulated!

    I don't care what game they release, as long as it is good and polished.

    Why? Which ones? You mean those overpriced roms?

    Do us all a favor, Sega, and re-make Outrun. STOP porting over 20 YO games.

    Panzer Dragoon would work wonders. But please don't shoddily port it like you do with the rest of your games.

    Oh, while you're listening, you may as well kill off Sonic if all you're gonna do is make terrible games starring him.

    Man, I miss the Sega of old.

    Oh yeah, I love OutRun. I'm quite shure they'll release this anyway.

    It really doesn't matter what they port when whatever they make on the iphone runs so terribly that it's basically an unplayable novelty.

    Sega is sitting on a MEGATON of IP that they can use on the iphone. I don't care if they're 20 years old. I'd LOVE to have Afterburner, Altered Beast, Kid Chameleon, Sonic 2, 3, Streets of Rage 2 w/ online co-op, Eternal Champions, Toe Jam and Early with online co-op, Ghouls n Ghosts, Revenge of Shinobi, Phantasy Star, Shining Force, Forgotten Worlds, MJ's Moonwalker (too soon?), Outrun, Strider...etc

    I mean, they could make a killing w/ selling these games at 5 bucks a pop. But they really can't be lazy about things. If there's one thing that will make or break an iphone game....it's word of mouth. And when people read about your games on the iphone having horribad performance....it just drives them away.

    First and foremost Sega needs to ensure whatever they release runs smoothly. If the 7.67mhz, 64k ram genesis could do it......the iphone most certainly can.

    +1 I never played Panzer Dragoon but I know is a ultra super game and a good port will be amazing. Out run, Space harrier will be nice too but the one that will make more noise IMO here is Panzer Dragoon because is a classic and the controls can be good ported.

    I will never buy a bad emulated rom from a Genesis game.
