GameSpot says here that there's going to be MAT2; Mortal Kombats I and II as well as Total Carnage are going to be released on it.

Count me in as one of the people eagerly anticipating this.

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

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.

I'm curious if they'll include High Impact Football, as well -- any other Atari arcade video games that come to mind?

As for Williams/Midway, there's always Kick, Domino Man, Journey, Crystal Castles, On the Ice and more. BTW, LanceJr, Rampage was released on Arcade Treasures 1.

As for TRON, that would be very nice, but I'd be even more stoked for Discs of Tron, only because you could actually use the L3/R3 buttons.

All hard copies of non-THQ-produced WWF games had to be destroyed because THQ bought the license? In other words, the licensing agreement was retroactive?

How the hell does that work?

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.
