The Xbox 360 version of the game will launch in North America, Europe, and Australia on November 24. In Europe and Australia, the PlayStation 3 version will hit the same day, although American gamers will be able to download it starting November 23. When it launches, the game will sell for 800 Microsoft points ($9.99, £6.29, €7.99, or AU$12.95).

Crazy Taxi is the second Dreamcast revival to arrive on downloadable services from Sega, following on from last month's release of Sonic Adventure. Like that game, Crazy Taxi has been updated with 720p HD visuals, leaderboards, and achievements/trophies. Like the original game, the rerelease features 16 minigames as well as arcade and original game modes.
