Not to sound like an ad here but insert coin is a pretty great videogame clothes store. The designs they have are subtle and never too in your face or pointlessly meme filled, which makes their new team-up with Sega pants jizzingly amazing.
They have had previous Sega inspired shirts on their site before but this upcoming range will introduce new awesome items such as several Sonic shirts and hoodies, a Space Channel 5 vest, and some bizarre Sonic leggings (viewable above). You can view the rest of the designs on their recent blog post here. Pretty awesome stuff per usual and I’m definitely looking forward to seeing what this range looks like in cloth when they release these new designs later this year.

The PlayStation Network is sometimes known for having awesome sales, especially once you kick in the PS Plus members discount. Today began some insane deals and a few of them include Sega games:
NiGHTS into Dreams: Regular $9.99, Sale $4.99, PS Plus $2.50
Jet Set Radio: Regular $9.99, Sale $4.99, PS Plus $2.50
The House of the Dead: OVERKILL Extended Cut – Regular $19.99, Sale $9.99, PS Plus $5.00
If I didn’t already own NiGHTS, and Jet Set Radio I would definitely grab these. But I do have a Move Controller collecting dust, so I think it’s high time I try out HOTD: Overkill since I’ve heard good things. Which ones are you grabbing?

These mobile versions have had various new tweaks and features added to them over their previously released XBLA and PSN counterparts. The game has been optimised for Retina displays and graffiti can be sprayed by a simple swipe of the touch screen. In addition to this, the iOS device camera can be used to take photos which are then converted into in-game graffiti tags.
Think you’ll be getting this release? Are you up to the challenge of playing with ‘virtual controls’? Let us know in the comments section below!

‘Pre-Black Friday…? Isn’t one ridiculously crazy shopping event enough?’ The answer is obviously no, shopping is good for you, and thanks to Amazon you can snap up a whole bunch of downloadable Sega goodies for your PC for next-to-nothing prices as part of their pre-Black Friday sale.
Sonic CD for $1.24, Jet Set Radio for $4.99, the Sega Action Pack (containing Aliens vs Predator, Binary Domain, Condemned, Hell Yeah, Viking: Battle for Asgard) for $14.99 and more are yours to be had. But act fast as the sales for each item end on the 24th and the 25th Nov. The full list of deals can be seen after the jump!
Jet Set Radio HD has already come and gone on consoles, leaving in its wake a blazing trail of success, but those of you frothing at the mouth for a tiny, handheld Tokyoto on the go have been patiently waiting for some news of the Vita and even iOS ports. Well, the wait is nearly over!
Sega has announced that the Vita version of the game will be available on November 20th (just in time for Thanksgiving!), with the iOS version coming on November 29th.
Additionally, Sega has revealed that Jet Set Radio will be among the first titles to ride the rails of Sony’s Playstation Plus Vita Instant Game Collection. That means gamers with a Vita and a Playstation Plus subscription will be able to play the game for free from November 20th to December 31st. Pretty sweet. Unfortunately the promotion is U.S. exclusive, though.
Anyone eager to pick either of these up? Despite my misgivings about virtual controls (I grew sick at the very sight of the above screenshot), I’m morbidly curious to see how the game looks on my iPhone. The concept of a portable Jet Set Radio is just too awesome to bear.
I’ve seen a lot of amazing custom console paint jobs in my time, but French graffiti artist OSKUNK may just take the prize for having the most bad ass collection of custom consoles ever. Oh, and did I mention that he created every single one of them himself?
Using a combination of permanent markers and spray paint, and fuelled by a love of videogames OSKUNK has used games console as his canvas to create what many would agree are genuine pieces of art.
If the Virtual On inspired Dreamcast above doesn’t give you a tingling sensation in your nether regions, how about a Jet Set Radio one, or maybe a couple of Skies of Arcadia ones, or perhaps a Dr. Eggman egg. Wait, what?
Check out more of OSKUNK’s work over at his blog, and let us know what you think in the comments below!
Sumo Digital’s Sega All-Stars series have been extremely satisfying Sega character cross-over games for numerous reasons, but for many Sega fans it was the sound tracks that really helped give the games an air of cohesion. The fellows over at Destructoid were lucky enough to pick the brains of Sonic & All-Star Racing Transformed producer Steve Lycett about the upcoming game’s soundtrack, arranged by Sega legend Richard Jacques, as well as having a sneak peak at some of the tracks.
Jet Set Radio
Steve Lycett had many things to say, about pubs, secret Japanese Sega vaults, dub-step and more! Check out his comments in full after the jump.
This entire month on the site has been one giant Dreamcast lovefest, and it goes without saying that, when you mention the Dreamcast, there’s usually someone who will bring up Jet Set Radio. It was one of the most unique games Sega ever made, and while it’s rare to see someone claim it as the greatest game ever, it still gets a lot of much-deserved love from fans. Despite the rather massive cult following, aside from guest spots for characters in the Sega All-Star games, Sega’s never really revisited the franchise since 2002′s Jet Set Radio Future.
Needless to say, the day Sega announced this re-release for HD consoles was met with a ton of celebration and hype. So much so, “Jet Set Radio” was a #1 worldwide trending topic on Twitter soon after Sega posted the teaser, the first time to my knowledge a Sega game has ever done such a thing. This release was a big deal, to say the least.
So after all these years, was it all worth the wait? Or does it tarnish our memories of a great game? Hit the jump, preferably with a flamboyant spin, to find out. More >
Announced on Sega’s Instagram account today, the Jet Set Radio Original Soundtrack is now available for pre-order on Amazon. The soundtrack includes a total of 17 tracks, with a few from Jet Set Radio Future added to the mix. At first you may be disappointed not to see any Rob Zombie on the listing, but after playing through this game as much as I have lately I can safely say that Dragula was not the reason I enjoyed taggin’ some turf. I know I don’t plan to “Let Mom Sleep” while blasting this in my car to let everyone know they should be “Humming the Bassline” until they understand the “Concept of Love.” I can’t help myself, but I think “That’s Enough” of the puns for now. What do you think?
The hilarious folks of the Going Nowhere Show on youtube have just released this pitch-perfect rendition of Jet Set Radio in the real world, and boy does it make me want to grab some oversized sunglasses and dance like a fool.
They knocked everything out of the park with this one–everything from the character select screen, to the tagging prompts, to the hilariously robotic pod people police, right down to Beat’s perpetually smug expression. All that’s missing is the anti-graffiti PSA from the beginning of the game.
Kudos guys, kudos. What a lovely way to kick off JSR HD’s release week.
