Download Sega Genesis games on Revolution!

During the GDC Conference this afternoon, Nintendo announced that Sega Genesis and TurboGrafx games will be downloadable on Nintendo’s unnamed next-generation console, code-named Nintendo Revolution.

According to a press release sent out during the conference, “Revolution owners will be able to relive their past gaming glories from the Sega Genesis console by playing a "best of" selection from more than 1,000 Genesis titles, as well as games sold for the TurboGrafx console (a system jointly developed by NEC and Hudson). These games join Revolution's access to 20 years of fan-favorite Nintendo games from the NES(R), Super NES(R) and Nintendo(R) 64 eras.”

The Sega Genesis and TurboGrafx consoles competed against the Super Nintendo in the 1990’s, allowing the upcoming console to play all of the major systems in that generation. This announcement greatly increases the library of titles to be downloaded on the Revolution.

This is great news for the Virtual Console. I only hope that the Dreamcast doesn't get left out, but it looks that way so far. Anyone know of a good TurboGrafx 16 game?
