I guess I shouldn't be expecting it for the Cube, then?

Just so you guys know: 75% of this crap [you read on the internet] is made up, either by the writer, or the wrestler the writer is getting the dirt from. Just so you know. -- Statement by "Tammy Sytch", from Hyatte's Dec. 29th column ... Lest we forget.
Since it's a budget title ($19.99) and simple emulation, Arcade Tresures 2 should be released on all 3 consoles.
It's been confirmed Mortal Kombat 1, 2, & 3 will be included. But what version of MK3? It will be cool to have arcade conversions of MK's on my X-Box so I don't have to break out my SNES in the closet to play them.
Lets hope they add Revolution X(Aerosmith shooting game), Area 51(1 & 2), Terminator 2:Arcade, PitFighter, Off Road Challenge, Primal Rage (1 & and part 2 that was never released but was made), Arch Rivals, San Francisco Rush, Rampage, and TRON ! ! !
Sucks they can't add WWF Wrestlemania arcade because THQ is the only authorized producer of WWE games. All past WWF games had to be deleted from game developers libraries when THQ gained the license. Seriously it's true. All the "hard copies" of past WWE(F) games (the Arcade game, the SNES/Genesis games, PS1, Saturn, Dreamcast, etc) that Acclaim/LJN(NES) produced were destroyed by court order in the late 90's due to THQ now owning the license to produce WWE games.
But in reguards to getting Arcade Treasures on the GC thats cool, but bigger budget games don't get your hopes up. The new Mortal Kombat:Deception is only being released for X-Box & PS2 in the fall.
THQ has the SOLE license agreement. Video games are not liek other things. WWE has the right to say who can or can not have rights to their products. When the license runs out so does the right to maintain such properties. Therefore the older license companies had to destroy or relinquish past holdings. Since only the WWE(WWF) content is at stake in the license the old license holders aren't losing any money, etc.
This article (wiredblogs.tripod.com) makes a similar point to yours. It would seem the main problem, causing all of the 'kvetching', is that the name isn't directed at the hardcore-internet-fanboy types.
