#4 there are literally thousands of Genesis roms floating around on the net of Sonic & Knuckles, and it's the same damn game that's getting released on the Arcade. Seriously, since when is it better to get a crappy, pixel-for-pixel remake then a shiny, brand-new game? I bet you didn't even look at the pages for the games, because if you did, you'd realize that they're actually pretty unique.

Never heard of either of them. I'll have to check them out.

"#4 there are literally thousands of Genesis roms floating around on the net of Sonic & Knuckles"
And your point? There are literally thousands of copies of any retail game in stores. All you have to do is go steal one. Or you could not be a douchebag and buy a copy instead, which is probably why people like #4 are waiting for the XBLA release.

Calm down we know your 14 year old mind can't handle other people's opinions. You'll find only fools use torrents because they risk getting their internet disconnected end of.

Of course the one thing missing from the ROM is achievements, which is the whole point of this website no?
Personally I am going to download it I don't have a major issue with paying for items.

And of course Nintendo and Sega are after our money, they're a business, that's their job.

But each to their own, ROM or XBLA, it's your choice and money to do with what you want.

Looking forward to Defense Grid, it's one of the better Tower Defense games out there!

Didn't even realise it was getting a 360 release.

@13 because the original copies don't have achieves, and sometimes there are time or score leaderboards and i'll compete with my friends for bragging rights thats why I'll buy it on XBLA.

You actually sound more close minded than anyone here. Its there money WTF does it matter to you how they spend it.

Awesome, yet another two games I have no interest in! How about some ARCADE games, as in classic coin-ops? There are so many great games from the late 80s/early 90s that they could release one every day for the marketplace and not run out for years. Instead we get some shitty knockoffs while the developers of those classic games either ignore our requests for re-releases or make shitty remakes instead.

I was hoping for Warriors: Street Brawl but that will probably be the 3rd or 4th week of September. At least I'll have Fear 2 DLC, Left 4 Dead DLC, Red Faction DLC, and a new season of Law & Order: SVU released this month.
