After it has confirmed to be bringing Dreamcast titles to the downloadable platforms on Xbox 360 and PS3, Sega is now reportedly working on tapping into the small but classic library of the Sega Saturn.
In an interview with Japanese site, Sega rep Yosuke Okunari said, "We're of course thinking about ports of Saturn games... please share your requests."

Okunari is in charge of porting the Dreamcast titles over to the new gaming platforms, and appears interested in pumping in more back-catalog titles to the current consumer.

The Wii's Virtual Console brought the idea to the forefront of downloadable versions of classic console games. However, the Wii is limited because of strict download capacity constraints, so its Virtual Console lineup does not extend far beyond the Nintendo 64.

Meanwhile, the PS3 offers downloadable "PS One Classics" and the Xbox 360 has old titles available from the original Xbox.

Across all regions, the Saturn ended up getting 540 games in its 4-year run. Some of its top-selling games in the US were Sega Rally Championship, Virtua Fighter 2, and Sonic 3D Blast.
