The days of a single joystick with a lone button may be long gone, but Activision is banking that the appeal of games that use simple controls isn't. The publisher today announced Activision Hits Remixed for the PlayStation Portable, a collection of the company's games from the days of the Atari 2600.
The compilation, due for release this fall, will include more than 40 Activision offerings from the classic console--games such as the vine-swinging, alligator-stomping, scorpion-jumping Pitfall! Also confirmed for the package will be Kaboom!, Chopper Command, Stampede, and Keystone Kapers.
Games that have a multiplayer mode will be playable by either taking turns on one PSP, playing games over the handheld's wireless capabilities, or competing in two-player matches over two PSPs with just one UMD disc using the game-sharing feature.
It's unclear how or if the games will be "Remixed," but Activision does say the collection will sport "modernized front-end graphics." Gamers can also look forward to a 1980s-themed soundtrack, classic game manuals, and several unlockables.
