Sure there is a chance. Those xbla games from midway were dropped because the contract ended. If they can arrange a new contract with the new license holders we might see a comeback of midway games.

Apparently they have enough titles already licensed to take them into the middle of 2011 even if they stopped now. There's going to be 7 titles every week and I think they're looking at Friday becoming "Game Room Friday". The guy that Major Nelson interviewed said one of his favorites was Time Pilot which if I recall correctly that was a Midway title. If that's the case I'd say its only a matter of time.

On a side note, he also said that the game room idea was first brought up because someone in a meeting wanted to be able to have Dreamcast games on Live, but rather than narrow it down to a Dreamcast emulator they decided on Game Room which will eventually become pretty much an "everything" emulator.

Edit: sorry, turns out Time Pilot was Konami. Oh well, can still hope I guess.

Hell yeah, but honestly anything Dreamcast would be nice since there isn't really a good Dreamcast emulator ever. (that I'm aware of anyway)
