After reading on a couple of sites it seems that SoR4 may be released for either the x-box or PS2. After being turned down by the saturn, dreamcast and playstation it seems that SoR 4 might be FINALLY be released on one of the two consoles.

"X-Box Bound? - March 2001

With the Dreamcast dying, Sega began changing it's focus to becoming a software only developer, a process that can be seen quite visibly today. It's franchises, previously restricted to Sega machines, are now being updated on other machines - Sonic Advance on GBA and Sonic Adventure 2 on GC being notable examples. With this new focus on software, Streets of Rage 4 may recommence...

Hitmaker to develop? - September 2001

Following on from Yuzo's statements about Hitmaker being the team he wants to develop SOR4, there are some new rumours going around at the moment that sound quite feasible - check out this article over at XBoxActive.com. ( http://xboxactive.com/archives/00000456.php)

D3 to develop PS2 remake of SOR - Dec 2002

The partnership between Sega and D3 (cleverly-titled 3D Ages) has led to the announcement of a Sega Ages range of classic remakes, due for release in the second half of 2003. These budget PS2 games draw mainly on 8 & 16 bit Sega classics, and will use the power of the PS2 to enhance the graphics and sound. Streets of Rage is among the titles announced - whether the remake will be of the original or SOR2 is not known, nor the extent to which the gameplay, graphics and sound will be changed. However, if the remake is successful it could lead to Sega changing its attitude towards an all-new SOR game"

With all this it seems that SoR 4 could be going towards either of the next gen consoles. I personally would rather see it going to the x-box becuase i don't plan on ever owning a Ps2 but if it does come out for the Ps2 i might just have to persuade myself (and my mum) to get one.

Optimism is always a good thing, but I could give you a list of games that never saw the light of day as long as your arm. Sega is one of the worst offenders.
