Opinion on retrogaming here at Eurogamer is somewhat split to say the least. Some of us would just love to wile away the hours giving Gauntlet another once over on a green screen Amstrad CPC or something while mumbling about how "they don't make 'em like this any more", while others just can't see the point, yelling till they're red in the face that they should be consigned to and remain in history where they belong.

Midway, however, is clearly placed in the former camp, with its announcement of Midway Arcade Treasures - a pretty hefty collection of the company's classics re-released for PS2, Xbox and GameCube. There's even a fair amount of movie DVD-style extras squeezed onto the discs, including interviews with the creators and developers, and features delving into their history. Here's the full line-up of titles set for release this autumn:

  • Spy Hunter
  • Defender II
  • Gauntlet
  • Joust
  • Paperboy
  • Rampage
  • Marble Madness
  • Robotron: 2084
  • Smash TV
  • Joust 2
  • Bubbles
  • RoadBlasters
  • Blaster
