My point is, buy it if nostalgia compels you to but don't righteously talk down to those who are unwilling to fork out cash for it!
As someone who plays all kinds of different games on a variety of different platforms, I can honestly say that a big part of the reason I like these old games is that they are MORE FUN than many new games.

I'd settle for Metal Slug X - a cart that never leaves my 6-slot MVS cabinet in the garage.

did not see that coming either, and i would happily pay $7 for it, i mean, a lot of japanese ports cost around $10, this is pretty much the only one that's worth it. maybe FF too.

No meant disrespect to anyone, I was just pointing out the fact about ios gamers. iOS gamers are cheap that's all. We haven't even seen a gameplay vid (before Sanuku even posted his impressions and we have some people already making their mind up because it is $7
Anyway, I can't wait to grab this when it comes out tonight.

Not going to get too involved in the pricing talk. I'll just say this, I'm stoked to be able to buy this title for only $7.
