Sega's Ultimate Genesis emulator

Oh snap, legal emulation on the iPhone from Sega. This looks like Sega pulled a play from C64's book http://gizmodo.com/5452354/ultimate-...nsole-emulator

So segas releasing an emulator, which you probably have to pay for, with no games included and only like 4-5 games to download? Pass

Lol..doesn't really seem like a smart idea, now does it?

It's cool, refreshing, and irresistibly tantalizing...ChocoVanilla Ice-Cream!

its free with in app purchasing and comes with a game.. i think the c64 emulators like 4.99 US and comes with 2-4 games.. seems pretty reasonable to me..

Instant buy for me if they bring dragon's fury (devil's crush I think in US) or any of the Shinobi games

They should do that Sonic CD game thing we saw a few months ago. Apart from a free Space Harrier and reducing icon clutter, no one else will buy this.

Those who want must've already bought the game long time ago.

Those who haven't aren't more likely to buy it now. I mean, they're exactly the same games run on poor emulator with zero effort put into it.

Sega is just plain stupid. I can't believe they're the game company I loved most as a kid. I still love them, but they're just retarded thesedays.

Four most influential games: Papi Jump, iDracula, Fieldrunners, Flight Control.

I'm not sure why this is a bad move? They're releasing a free emulator with dlc...sounds better than releasing all the games separately. Plus, any controls update or any update at all would be much easier on their part. Pretty smart way to bring more games to the platform I'd say.
