Those Dreamcast games we’re wistfully talking about? Long, long memories, restored to their maximum shinyness on the PS3 and the Xbox 360? Well, it’s not going to be quite that cleanly cut – according to Joystiq both Crazy Taxi and Sonic Adventure won’t be quite as super fab as we first thought.
First off – Crazy Taxi. SEGA’s wonderful arcade driver will see cuts in the form of the original’s licensed music (so no more Offspring and Bad Company) and the removal of certain brand names, like Pizza Hut. Essentially the same fate that befell the PSP version released a while back, then. Not a game breaker, but not ideal.
Elsewhere, Sonic Adventure will see the conversion to HD in standard 4:3-o-vision – users of Widescreen sets will simply see the image centred with some blue backgrounds floating behind. Again, since the Dreamcast original was at this ratio we can hardly expect to see anything else, but as SEGA’s first two outings we’re a little disappointed.
Crazy Taxi will be in widescreen, though. Looks like perhaps the code for Sonic was a little trickier to massage.
