Sega's Dreamcast trademarks explained?


There have been many Dreamcast games re-trademarked over the past few months, with no explanation from Sega. We have been speculating as to why Sega have been doing this, with theories such as property protection and compilation discs popping up. Well, we may just be closer to explaining the whole thing!

It seems that yesterday the ever-reliable Australian Classification Board rated Virtual-On, one of the Dreamcast games recently re-trademarked. It has been given a PG rating, citing "mild violence". Also interesting is the game's listing as "multi-platform".

This new information makes it likely that these titles (others include ChuChu Rocket, Sonic Shuffle, Jet Set Radio and Cosmic Smash) are going to make their way onto the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade as downloadable titles. Hopefully they will include new features, such as online play and leaderboards. Even some trophies would be nice.

This mystery is getting ever-closer to being solved. Finally.
