Midway Launches Arcade Treasures for PSP


Mobile gamers grab your tokens; another classics compilation is making its way to the PSP. This time around, it’s arcade grand-master Midway’s turn with an anthology of 21 retro gems.

Midway Arcade Treasures: Extended Play for Sony PSP features an extensive list of white-knuckle titles, with both single and multi-player wireless options. Head to head wireless titles include: Joust, Mortal Kombat (1, 2 & 3), Rampage and Gauntlet. Spy Hunter, Sinistar, Defender, Paperboy and 720 Degrees make up the single player games available.

This is the publisher’s first foray into the PSP world and it appears to be a good one with a personal guarantee from Midway’s Chief Marketing Officer promising Midway Arcade Treasures: Extended Play to be the “perfect portable title”.

While the button-smashing set may scoff at some glaring omissions like Sub-Zero and Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3, the titles that did make the cut look and sound pretty good according to early reports. Video on the PSP is crisp and defined – more so than made for television versions and game speed is also rumored to be true to arcade.

Midway wants gamers to wake up Christmas morning to find a copy of Midway Arcade Treasures: Extended Play in their stockings. Stuffers can purchase the game at most game boutiques and online for about $30.
