SEGA of America today announced that Crazy Taxi is now available for download on the PlayStation Network, and will be available next week, Nov. 24, on the Xbox LIVE Arcade. Digitally remastered with High-Definition 720p graphics, players can enjoy all the fun of the original arcade and Dreamcast classics for $9.99 or 800 Microsoft points. PlayStation Plus Members can obtain this title for 20% off for the first two weeks of release, until November 30, 2010.
“If today were the debut of Crazy Taxi, we’re certain its unique blend of arcade action and precision driving would still lead it to become one of SEGA’s most popular titles,” said Haruki Satomi, VP of Digital Business of SEGA of America. “This new and improved entry in the series will bring as much joy and happiness to players in 2010 as the previous games have in years past.”
In addition to being digitally re-mastered in HD, Crazy Taxi includes leaderboards and trophy awards, two game modes (Arcade and Original) and 16 mini games to hone players’ insane driving skills.
