Bleh, same old game selection. How about something we haven't seen yet
on compilation disks like Solvalu (Xevious II), Pac 'n Pal or Dig Dug
II. Seems like cheating to include both Pole Positions when there
really is not much difference between the two games.

I'd kill for a decent Xevious compilation with the original, Solvalu,
Grobda, Super Xevious, and Xevious 3D/G+

Yeh, that Xevious compilation would kick. I have 3 of those
already, but having them in one board would be great!

Yah, pretty much what I thought when I read a while back about Namco
doing a new disc. Same old games, few new ones, shiny new box.

How about licensing Super Pac-Man from Bally/Midway and including that on
the disc? And why do they all have to be classics? Namco was making
games through the '90s and 2000s, how about Tekken, Ehrgeiz, Galaga '88,
Mr Driller, Lucky n Wild, Ridge Racer, etc...

For the record, Galaga '88 is included on Namco Museum: 50th
Anniversary for Xbox, PlayStation 2, and GameCube. It is an unlockable
game, along with Pac-mania.

Galaga '88 is *not* included on the GBA version of the 50th Anniversary
game.

Galaga '88 is *not* included on the PSP game called Namco Museum Battle
Collection.

It's a shame, since I would own the PSP version already if they'd put
Galaga '88 on there.

Something like that. Pac-Mania is unlockable by scoring enough points
in both Pac-Man and Ms. Pac-Man. Galaga 88 is unlockable by scoring
enough points in Galaga. Both goals are pretty easy to achieve.

I actually prefer the PSP version, with four new arranged games and 17
other games--a few of which weren't on the original US Namco Museum
disks (just the Japanese Namco encore disk). But it is $39.

Unlockable by what means? Scoring a million points in Pac-Man and Galaga?
