    Yeah, they were showing demos of this at CGE2K3 - was pretty damn cool. Can't wait to pick up a copy for the GC!

    The most interesting thing I learned about Treasures at CGE '03 is that Midway didn't come up with the idea; it was approached by Digital Eclipse, which had put together a demo version of Treasures in its collective spare time. Scary that other developers have more reverence for Midway's classic properties than Midway itself.

    I am pretty sure there will be unlockable games, sort of like "Activision Anthology" by beating certain high-scores and such. "Midway Arcade Treasures" will be awesome on all three systems and if you wanted all three systems have at least one Arcade stick.

    You mean for $20 I get Tapper, 720, Smash TV, Joust, and KLAX? And more? I'm there, very very very there.

    They (as in Digital Eclipse) desperately need to make this for the Game Boy Advance, to undo the wrong that was Midway Arcade's Greatest Hits.

    I may just have to get this, if for no other reason to have Satan's Hollow and Vindicators.

    Out of the list, those two and Rampart are the only games I don't have in one form or another. Where's Gauntlet II?
