Anybody have any info/know any sites where they say what games to expect in the near future?

After Ptifall!, I guess they have to put Jungle Hunt (which I've played even more than Pitfall!) - just hoping anybody has some info on that.

I'm quite certain there hasn't been any rumours regarding Jungle Hunt/Jungle King, but we could always hope they sign up a deal with Taito. At least many of their classics are already out on XBLA so I guess the chances are big.

Such a deal would also give the possibility of the following great classics:

Arkanoid
Bubble Bobble
Darius
Double Dragon
Elevator Action
Flying Shark
Puzzle Bobble
Qix
Rastan Saga
Tiger Heli
Wardner

I didn't think about the necessary agreement with Taito...

The description on xbox.com (http://www.xbox.com/en-CA/games/g/gameroomxbla/) states:
At launch, Game Room brings you a library of 30 original arcade and console classics from Activision, Atari, Intellivision, Konami, Taito, and others

But then, the GR website (http://www.xbox.com/en-US/games/splash/g/gameroomxbla/) doesn't mention Taito anymore:
Explore the world of classic arcade gaming with GameRoom's library of favorites from Atari Inc., Intellivision, Konami Corp. and more!


I hope it doesn't mean there has been a problem with the agreement and Taito games are out of the picture now.



If there are Taito games, there has to be Jungle Hunt then.

I only played the Atari 2600 version, but the arcade version does seem a bit nicer. Not sure which one I'd rather play...

Well, that would mean we wouldn't have Activision games anymore. =(

Why? Pitfall! just came out and it's Activision.

As for Taito, come to think about it, Space Invaders also isn't there - and it's probably in the top 10 "vintage" games in anyboduy's list. I hope we'll have some good Taito games coming out eventually...

I really hope things are still good to get Taito games for Game Room. Space Invaders and Jungle Hunt are two of my most wanted titles.
