"Re(3):SEGA Snub the X box????" , posted Sun 12 Oct 21:54
Most home console releases for light gun games would probably have to be done the same way Namco does them. Namco releases two versions of every one of their light gun games, a normal version and a deluxe box set with a light gun included. It's pretty much the only way that Namco has been able to release any light gun games for home consoles and I doubt Sega would be able to do anything different.
Sega blew this in the US twice. HotD2 for DC... no official gun sales in the US. The 3rd party guns were so-so. The Japanese official gun didn't even work with the US game. Bleh. HotD3? No Sega gun again, and when the game released, there was only one gun available. Don't know about now... At least in Namco's bundles, you get a nice, solid gun. Too bad they're all orange now... I liked my grey Guncon, even if it wasn't black. I still want a set of Euro blue Stunners for my Saturn, so I can relive the days of fun on the HotD cab in the mall. Whee.
It's pretty much the same thing that Konami did when they initially made Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance for the Xbox, but then decided that a Japanese release wasn't worth it by the time the game was completed.
And then the PS2 version got more extras! Ha. Crikey. Like the skateboarding game, the really bad one that I played until I finished perfectly, for some inexplicable reason. The game it's based on is only $10 and in abundance at Best Buy stores, hehe.
But anyway. As I was saying (was I?), I refused to buy an Xbox until it came with controller S. When it did, I got JSRF... screw Sega GT, I only wanted JSRF. Anyway, I bought Xbox primarily for those Sega games, and then came to use it primarily for Halo. Anyway, Gunvalkyrie, PD Orta, Otogi (even though not really Sega), good stuff. But hearing what I do about OutRun 2... I write this formal letter to Sega:
IF YOU DO NOT GIVE ME THIS GAME, SEGA, I WILL BURN YOU TO THE GROUND.
