You can get Phantasy Star II for either the Playstation 2 or PSP. I assume it will be a Virtual Console release too. The old D&D branded games seem to never be re-released though. The folks that own the rights to the Intellivision library have never been able to clear their D&D licensed games for re-release and those are 20-25 years old now :boggled: I don't know why the TSR/Wizards of the Coast folks are so opposed to old games being available.

It is a bit different because you're not getting the game for free. If you have to decide between buying an old Genesis game for $5 on eBay or $7 on Virtual Console you may opt for Virtual Console version. Deciding between free and $7 isn't the same. Being willing to pay puts us in in the minority on this. For most, if they can get a game for free they will never consider paying for it later.
