Midway resurrects arcade classics

Publisher's just-shipped Arcade Treasures collection will bring original Gauntlet, Joust, Smash TV, and other old-school games to consoles.


The wave of game nostalgia crested a little higher today when Midway shipped its Arcade Treasures collection. The PlayStation 2 edition headed off to stores today, with the Xbox and GameCube versions due out on November 24 and December 17, respectively. All have an ESRB rating of 'T' for teen and an MSRP of $19.95.
