X360X360Racketboy has collected a list of retrogaming port announcements that are sure to interest retrogamers who don't want to go the emulator route. The GBA is getting a 3-game Capcom pack that includes Bionic Commando and Strider (whatever happened to that franchise?), and the Xbox 360 Live Arcade is getting a whole suite of really sweet classics (including Paperboy and Sonic). It really amuses me how many "obsolete" games are showing up on modern consoles these days--a testament to their status as true classics. Of course, this ties in nicely with Nintendo's announcement to cater more to touch gamers this time around.

I'm just glad that some of us have finally gotten to the point where we don't insist that every game we buy for a modern console or PC has to take "full advantage" of the technology. I mean, that's VGA thinking, isn't it?
