Crosses fingers in vain hope that any delays for vita don't affect iOS. This is one of the greatest arcade games of all time.

I was so looking forward to replaying this game on the Vita today and woke up to the disappointing news.

It would have been great to have been able to play 2 Sega classics in such a short time (Crazy Taxi last week).

Oh well.

I think it actually does ,i think there's a problem optimizing it for mobile period especially the touchscreen side of things

Hmm, was looking forward to this a lot on iOS, but the lack of firm news is worrying, especially in light of the Vita announcement.

I also see that Virtua Fighter 2 and Fighting Vipers have been rated for XBLA, hinting at a future release. Bring the definitive version of VF2 to the iPad, SEGA ... and then get rid of that God awful MegaDrive port that's on the App Store.

Two of my favourite Saturn brawlers, along with Fighters Megamix.

After playing the re-release on xbla I don't care any more, it's not as good as I remember it being.
I remember spending days playing it on the dreamcast but somehow for me anyway the gameplay doesn't stand te test of time.

I've only played Jet Set Radio Future, but if the gameplay is similar I'm excited to see the original come to mobile.

"The cel-shaded roller-blading graffiti-painting Dreamcast classic Jet Set Radio is coming to Vita on 20th November, with iOS and Android versions to follow on 29th November, Sega has announced."

Hoping for iPod touch 4 support as well.

I've only managed to play the GBA version, but not the console version. If it's compatible with my device, then I'm down for playing it.
