More retro gaming goodness coming to a console near you.

According to Midway Arcade Treasures Previews for PlayStation 2 at GameSpot you can look forward to using that shiny high-powered console sitting on your coffee table to play all your favorite 8-bit arcade games from your youth soon.

You’ll find 24 games, in all, on the disc. They include: 720, Blaster, Bubbles, Defender, Defender II, Gauntlet, Joust, Joust 2, Klax, Marble Madness, Paper Boy, Rampage, Rampart, Roadblasters, Robotron 2084, Satan’s Hollow, Sinistar, Smash TV, Splat!, Spyhunter, Super Sprint, Root Beer Tapper, Toobin’, and Vindicators. Each game is faithfully recreated on the PlayStation 2 with the sights and sounds of cutting-edge arcade technology—circa the 1980s. The games are laid out in an Egyptian-style menu that looks like an open book. In an amusing touch, hieroglyphic symbols are used to represent the games, and, as you highlight a glyph, a clip of the game appears in the center of the book.

Best of all, no quarters needed. Look for this to hit sometime before Christmas for the GameCube, PlayStation 2 and Xbox.

  1. ^Much better Classic hits, for the mere reason that it has Zelda one and two inclosed in the mini-me cd.
