I’ve always been a big fan of the Namco Museum since the PS1 days. Recently Microsoft pulled a lot of titles off of XBLA, including some Namco favorites. I had to wonder why they made that decision but wonder no more, Namco has just announced Namco Museum: Virtual Arcade. It comes with 30 classic games including 9 games from the XBLA and 21 games from their library. At a price of $29.99, you are paying less than $1.00 per game. Here’s the full release from Namco Bandai:
