Microsoft has added a few classic Sega fan favorites to the list of backwards compatible games on the Xbox One this week. Jet Set Radio led the charge, with Phantasy Star 2 and Sonic & Knuckles pulling up the rear.
If you’ve purchased the other classic Sonic games, you can use the original lock-on feature from within Sonic & Knuckles, which is pretty sweet.
What missing Sega games do you want Microsoft to add next?
You can grab the Sonic’s Ultimate Genesis Collection for Xbox 360 I talked about here for roughly $18 right now. The PS3 version is here for about the same price.
Note that if you do purchase them through these links, I may or may not get a small commission depending on Amazon’s feeling that day.
