Or maybe they just waited for it to be completed on purpose. And are now just saying they don't condone it as a formality. But if that's the case, I don't see why they didn't just openly embrace it, or flat out ignore it. It's been seventeen years since they did anything new with it. And there's still going to be people who would rather purchase the 360/wii/ps3 emulated versions of the originals.

Maybe they are in the midst of making a new full budget modern remake, or a new entry to the series. That would be a good reason to pull the free competition. :P Or maybe they were so impressed with it that they wanted to work out a deal to enhance and sell it. ;)

Whatever the case may be, V5 will still be floating around somewhere for those who want it.

The only thing left of Sega is the old logo. The creativity and innovation that once was is long gone, and has been replaced by lawyers and corporate executives more interested in financial gain than games and creativity.

I recently tried it out.

It beats the crap out of the originals.  ;D

Stop the hate and try it, Ayla.

Spread it people, 'tis going to be my next download here.

And, well, just dont forget, the Chrono Resurrection project was just a graphical remake: game remained untouched.
And i think Square should see how a "graphical update" would be important to that game.

Apparently SEGA was worried that this game would hinder their resales of Streets of Rage on various consoles. However by their action they only made the situation worse for themselves. It can be downloaded easily from the internet and now lots of people want to try it (SEGA unwillingly promoted this remake).

The game is actually quite good. The music is great and controls are more responsive than in the original Streets of Rage. What's not to like?

You mean, they pounded the project out 'cuz it was affecting their game sales?

He's referring to the emulated versions you can purchase on the online services of the Wii/360/PS3.

It's still a lame reason all things considered. It wouldn't have hurt sales much at all I reckon. The insanely wide spread availability of free emulators and roms is a much worse problem.

You don't need a Mega Drive, the game is released and available for purchase on several online networks for modern consoles. E.g. the virtual console for the Wii etc.

My point is that their actions will do more harm to the sales than they would suffer had the remake been not taken off. Its not about fans raging, its about SEGA unintentionally informing fans about a game which SEGA doesn't want anyone to play. It would be actually more profitable for SEGA to let the remake case slide. Resale of old games is a really minor source of income for them. I'm not a big fan of the resale practice*, but at least they make those games available on modern consoles (without the need to hack or modify anything).

*Like: Oh we totally didn't care about the game for 20 years, but hey we're selling it again right now.
Of course SEGA did some resales of some of their games during all this time on various platforms.

I support the opinion that the time after which creative work become public domain should be shortened

P.S. There is also the option that SEGA wants to profit from the remake, but its most unlikely.
