While it was already known that Sega would be bringing Dreamcast classics Crazy Taxi and Sonic Adventures to XBLA and PSN, E3 2010 has seen Sega reveal the full extent of it's plans. Apparently more than 20 Dreamcast classics are set to relaunch on more modern consoles.

"We hope to have somewhere between 18 to 24," Sega West president Mike Hayes told CVG.

Sega doesn't plan to delve further into its back catalogue though - Saturn games are off the table, for the moment.

"With Dreamcast, we want to refocus people on that particular console," continued Mike. "We want to make it more of a campaign... Confusing it by putting other [systems] in, we decided probably wouldn't be the right thing. And obviously the Dreamcast was huge for the fans."

Sega also dismissed rumours that it might be looking to relaunch the Dreamcast console itself, or a successor.

"We're a software company. We certainly won't be getting back into hardware, that's for sure."

Not surprising really - the failure of the Dreamcast and the Sega Saturn did a lot of damage to Sega, despite the strengths of both consoles.
