Outrun Online Arcade coming to XBLA & PSN

Great news for Outrun lovers. Sega’s classic racer is coming to XBLA and PSN in early 2009. From the above video it looks like we will be getting a similar game to the original xbox home conversion of Outrun 2.

Hopefully this game will do better than the xbox version. Obviously I’m not talking about critical success, more retail. It may have sold OK, but there were never many people playing it online. Now that xbox live has even more members and the fact this is sure to be cheaper as it’s download game, we may see a lot more people playing it. I, myself , can’t wait to battle it out against the worlds best on my favourite arcade racer!

    Outrun 2 is easily my favorite arcade racer (almost neck and neck with the classic Firetruck). I use to play Outrun 2 Special all the time while living in Tokyo. It’s a shame the game never really caught on here, it really is one of the best arcade racers ever made.


  2. I completely agree. The only ones that come close for me are Rally & Daytona. God I sound like a Sega fan boy!

    Guess this is a conversion of the Lindbergh HD version rather than the Chihiro powered original SD/ED game.
