Sega have decided to bury the hatchet once and for all with Nintendo, by letting them have Megadrive (Genesis) games be available to Revolution owners as download. Fun.

SEGA Europe Ltd. & SEGA of America, Inc. today announced that they will be providing SEGA titles as part of the Virtual Console system for Nintendo’s new generation console Nintendo Revolution.
"SEGA continues to develop innovative ways to showcase its new generation leadership," says Naoya Tsurumi, Chief Executive Officer, SEGA of America, Inc. and SEGA Europe, Ltd. "SEGA’s support of the Virtual Console system will introduce more gamers to classic MEGA DRIVE hits and reinvigorate many of our popular brands."
Nintendo’s Virtual Console will allow Revolution owners to download and play classic NES, SNES and MEGA DRIVE games through the Revolution network. With a game library of more than 1,000 titles for the MEGA DRIVE, SEGA is planning to provide a "best of" selection for gamers, enabling them to relive their favourite titles.

The Sega fanboy inside of me wants to get the console now. Sonic 2 still rocks!
