And a couple bullet points from the website:

"ALL TITLES UPGRADED TO HI-DEF. The classic 2D style never looked so good! Each of the titles has been converted to hi-def (720p) and will be a blast to play using the intuitive controls of the Xbox 360® and PLAYSTATION®3 systems."

"• UNLOCKABLE CONTENT. Unlock arcade games and interviews with the original game developers as you earn Achievements on the Xbox 360® and Trophies on the PLAYSTATION®3."

Sadly, it looks like there's no online multiplayer. Oh well, you can't get everything.

Anyway, I'm really psyched. Now time to see if I can unload my PS2 Genesis Collection before its value drops to nil.

EDIT: Here's the announcement:
