Do me a favour, plug me into a Sega

The price of Virtual Console games is a regularly debated topic, but things look set to improve slightly for those after a retrofix – Sega has announced that their Master System back-catalogue will cost just 400 Wii Points (£3) a pop.

The first games down for a re-release in the US are Wonder Boy and Fantasy Zone. Hopefully the likes of Psycho Fox, Alex Kidd in Miracle World, Wonder Boy III and Phantasy Star won’t be too far behind. Chances are though that we won’t get all of the best that the system had to offer – such as classy platformers Asterix and Mickey Mouse and the Castle of Illusion – due to licensing issues.

In other download related news, the highly regarded PC and incredibly hard to define Darwina is coming to Xbox Live. It’s not just a standard conversion either, but is being bundled with the upcoming sequel Multiwinia: Survival of the Flattest. Have a look at the screenshots on the official site.
