The return of Atari to the App Store

Why are we expected to pay again for Missile Command, Centipede etc when they're clearly the same games we bought from the LAST Atari?

Why would you buy the games again if you've already bought them?

Well, he's probably thinking about updates... but these aren't updates you want anyway. They add nothing, they only take something rather major away: the classic versions of the game. Yep, the new Atari apps are just the 'remix' versions. They aren't bad, for sure, but I want the classic versions too. I'm glad I picked these up when they were still available in their original form AND I'm glad they didn't rerelease them as "updates" that would have wiped out my superior originals.

Indeed. But if they've taken the originals out, that's insane.
