Nightly News Roundup

Nintendo Hosting Another E3 Developer Round Table

It’s something that most Nintendo fans probably expected, but Chris Kohler has made it official; Nintendo is hosting another developer’s round table at E3. Nintendo fans should pay close attention, as Brawl was revealed in 2006, and the new Zelda was revealed last year. This isn’t a guarantee of something new, but there’s always that chance.

Sega Reveals MotionPlus Support for Conduit 2

Eric Nofsinger, the Chief Creative Officer of High Voltage Software, has said that MotionPlus is not required to play the title, but that those who use the add-on will have an even better experience. Conduit 2 will be playable at this year’s E3, and is set to release sometime this Fall.

Sega Doesn’t Give Wii Owners a Chance to Replay Dreamcast Classics

Earlier today, Sega announced that they would start releasing Dreamcast on Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network. These titles will have enhanced visuals and trophy/achievement support. Sega most likely decided not to put Dreamcast titles on Virtual Console becuase of Wii’s storage limitations. A Dreamcast title would take up many more blocks than a Nintendo 64 title would. While this doesn’t mean that Nintendo fans will never be able to play Dreamcast titles on their system, it does mean for the time being they will have to go elsewhere. I’m happy about Dreamcast games making a comeback, but I think that Sega is forgetting about the Saturn, and they shouldn’t. I’d be fine without Dreamcast titles on the VC, but I want Saturn. I want to play Shining Force III, Shining Wisdom, and Shining the Holy Ark.

    Maybe on the 3DS. If rumors regarding it’s primarily online distribution model and superior processing power prove true.

    That would be great if the 3DS could play Dreamcast games. If it could, I’d like to see a pretty nice hard drive in that thing.

    Right, if it is as powerful as the “insiders” are claiming, then playing Dreamcast titles shouldn’t be a problem. But that’s assuming a good deal.

    Sega’s probably still reeling from the bad publicity surrounding the Saturn, twelve years after discontinuing it.

    Okay, that’s probably a stretch, but the system was pretty messed up, so finding those great titles might be a little harder than on Sega’s renaissance machine. That said, in addition to your list, I’m sure we’d see Nights and the first Panzer Dragoon title if that catalog got a second wind.
