Sonic Games to Hit RealOne Arcade Player

You will soon be able to play classic SEGA games on the popular RealPlayer service on PC. An agreement has been signed with RealNetworks to provide official versions of four games via the new RealOne Arcade application. SEGA will have its own specific ‘Sega Channel’ on the service. Sonic 1 is included in the initial lineup, with more Sonic games to come.

The RealOne Arcade platform will be available from this website. Aside from the first four games, which include Sonic 1 and Ecco the Dolphin, more Mega Drive games are planned to release later. These include Sonic 2, Dr. Robotnik’s Mean Bean Machine, Columns III, Phantasy Star II, Shinobi III, Toejam and Earl, Vectorman and Virtua Fighter 2.

Games will cost $14.99 each, but you can download demos of each game to try them out for free as well.
