    Ahh, Crystal Castles, Night Driver, Yar's Revenge.....those were the games I wanted in Volume 1. There's a few other decent ones in Volume 2 also, much more actual good ones than volume 1 had.

    Yeah. That's a much better list. Maybe they'll even put it at a reasonable price point for a collection set, like $20 at the launch.

    Cool i don't know why I look forward to these games since I have a wiz with mame and 2600 emu but I still find myself playing these comps when they come out.

    Surprised to see Major Havoc, I do not think its ever been released outside of the arcades.

    If you haven't had a chance to play it, the game is vector based like Star Wars but sort of like Berzerk.

    would sell better as a dsiware and cheaper price imo
    it's good for nostalgia, but it's not like you're going to play it for more than an hour or so with most of them

    Oh yeah, definitely some good ones. I lost track of how many hours my brother and I put into Yar's Revenge. I forgot all about that game. I look forward to getting in the wayback machine when this game releases. If memory serves, the video pinball was one of the better 2600 games as well, and Warlords...now that brings back memories, mostly because of the disappointment with what the box made you think you were going to get. [​IMG] Still a fun game, though.

    I don't think it was made by Atari, but man, I'd love to have a portable version of Robotron. That was perhaps my favorite game of that era.

    I wonder if they'll have a touchscreen option for the 2600 paddle games. Trying to play breakout with a d-pad would suck, but with a touchscreen it might be okay.

    My gut feeling is Robotron was a Williams game, that said let me look it up on Wikipedia too see if my memory is as shot as I believe it is...

    woot my sleep deprivation has not caught up to me yet!!!

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robotron:_2084

    It was Williams but it was developed by some other company I have never heard of.

    Too tired to look up if Atari had ever purchased Williams or they merged or anything like that. I want to say they did have some sort of partnership at some point.

    Does any DSiware actually sell well? This is pretty much guaranteed to be a cart release for all DS systems. Technically, on the surface, there is more money to be made when you can market the game to all DS owners. Flash carts also aren't all that far wide spread. Most are so oblivious to them that people will sell terrible R4 clones on Craigslist for about $50 to $75. They are not terribly obvious to those that don't really look for them.

    In the end, the DS is still a very marketable system making the prospect of making any potentially popular game DSiware a bad marketing strategy.
