    Unlike the abomination that was Retro Atari Classics, these DS packages will likely just contain a selection of no-fuss arcade ports (and perhaps even some of Atari's 2600 catalogue). A full list of what's included has yet to surface, but expect to see the likes of Asteroids, Centipede, Missile Command, Tempest and Warlords.

    Atari's Greatest Hits Vol. 1 is out in America this November, while volume 2 is expected early 2011.




    In the late 1970’s and early 1980’s, Atari introduced a new era in interactive entertainment with its addictive arcade games and home gaming system. Now with Atari’s Greatest Hits: Volume 1, a retro gaming revolution will be ignited on the Nintendo DS. Each spotlighted game will feature the same pick-up and play control scheme as their original arcade and 2600 form, with modern updates to align with the Nintendo DS platform.
    Additionally, Atari’s Greatest Hits: Volume 1 will feature the original game manuals for each title, an Atari memorabilia showcase, and special bonus extras — including an Atari Trivia game where gamers can race against the clock to answer questions about Atari history and then post their scores to Atari.com.

    ... methinks it's a pretty small category of people (from DS users) that would score well on that.

    This'll be worth it for Adventure alone.

    Not exactly being the richest kid growing up in the 90s, I nostalgia'd.

    That's not exactly how dumping works.

    People that can and choose to dump what THEY HAVE and what THEY want to dump.

    Dora is a Europe rom.
    Atari's Greatest Hits is a USA game.

    For the people that did not get my point.

    Dora was a European dump.
    Atari's Greatest Hits would be a US dump.

    The European scene groups are still active.
    The USA scene groups are on hiatus.

    So you can not compare the dumping of Dora with the dumping of Atari's Greatest Hits.

    The question is why are they on hiatus?

    That's not a correct question, because that infers that they SHOULD be doing this and it's their job/obligation and it's normal.

    It's not.

    Gee, kind of a bummer that this isn't dumped yet. I was gone 10 days and figured it would appear by the time I got back online......guess not. ~sigh~

    As an aside, the game got reduced to a more fair $19.99 according to Gamestop.
