VC2 was included in Sega Smash Pack Vol.1 in the US, There was no PAL release.

It's not quite a direct port of the arcade though, It's basically the PC version of VC2 (so it's a port of a port, if you like), I think the Saturn port is generally preferred to the DC version.

Thanks for all the others you listed; are you sure about the 3 above? I can't find good hits through Google for them (all DC).
I'm pretty sure I've seen NBA2K2 in arcade, but I haven't found it for arcade in http://www.gamefaqs.com, so maybe the arcade machine I saw was one of that illegal DCs hacked to fit in an arcade cabinet...

DDR Club Version wasn't released for the Arcade market (I think), but there are a lot of other DDRs for Arcade...

Yeah, I bought my DC mostly to play arcade games :roll:.

Your suggestion brought me to uncover the following:

[DC] Virtua Athlete 2k (2000)
http://dcmedia.ign.com/media/previews/i ... e/bg01.jpg
[ARC] Virtua Athletics (2002)
http://www.system16.com/sega/screens/vathlete.jpg

Are these two games essentially the same game? Unusual that the arcade was released 2 years after the DC version (unless my info is incorrect).

I'll put Virtua Fighter 3tb / Virtua Fighter 3: Team Battle in the first section after reading a few reviews of both and seeing screenshots - they're essentially the same.

The last time that dude was on this site at all was 2 years ago. Odds are he isn't going to reappear to edit his post. You could quite easily copy and paste it and add teh stuff yourself.
