Relive your childhood with the Sega Mega Drive Classics Hub on Steam

Sega has launched the Mega Drive Classics Hub on Steam.

  • Didn't even realise all these Sega classics were on steam. Was the Hub designed and developed by Steam themselves or Sega? Would be great for it to come to Xbox / Windows Store maybe with a bundle of all games and cross buy for XB1 and PC. Obviously if the Hub was created by steam that part couldn't come over
  • By SEGA.
  • By SEGA.
  • Nope its by sega
  • Definitely from Sega. Other notable features of this hub is that it also claims to contain graphics enhancement filters, better keyboard/controller support, local co-op for games that originally had co-op, save states and surprisingly mod support via steam workshop. As far as I know, this is the only official emulator that supports mods. Kudos to Sega.
  • As long as its not like pbfx2 or ea's 360 hasbro app where all the achievements are pooled together(as how its reflected on your gamertag)
  • Goodbye life. Hello childhood.
  • not showing up for me. unfortunately
  • The Mega Drive was my first console and I can honestly say I haven't had as much fun gaming on any console since. Good times.
  • No question it was a great system for it's day.... 2nd gen systems over the NES and Master system....
  • This is brilliant, was hoping for Desert Strike and Jungle Strike but hopefully they might be added later.
  • Is it VR compatible? It would be fun to immerse yourself back in time
  • So what its called?
  • Neat....but, I'll just pop out my Sega Genisis to play these games back, that I actually own the orignal carts on. A simple S-Video to HDMI adapter, no problem on my 4K TV :) Sega Genisis was the US version of the Mega Drive BTW Or there is a 3rd party program for Windows Media Center, Put all my ROMS in a app in Media Center, use my remote, select the game, and pop out a 360 controller to play them all (you can use the orignal controllers with some plugins)
  • It has all my old favorites except for NBA Jam, Joe Montana's Sports Talk Football, Mario Lemieux's Ice Hockey, and John Madden Football '92
  • Now if only Sega could do something like this for the Dreamcast. To me, that is the best console ever made.
  • Oh God
    Sonic, Streets of Rage, Golden Axe, these are my childhood guys. But unfortunately, now no time for all that
