I like the idea of classic games being made freely available, but it's too early to tell if we'll actually see Saturn games re-released, or whether this is just talk. The first set of games are widely available Megadrive games. The Dreamcast was mentioned more in the article (which is understandable given it's Windows foundation, and a number of PC ports already). But not much about the Saturn; I remain skeptical that they'll get to the Panzer Dragoon series (as much as I'd like that).
Personally I'd like to see Sega put these games on GOG (along with their existing PC ports like NiGHTS into Dreams). If they're not charging for the games anyway, and the aim is to gain users, is DRM-free really a problem?
