Metal Slug blasts its way onto XBLA

1UP is reporting that Metal Slug is heading to Xbox Live Arcade. In an interesting twist, there were no big announcements on the subject. 1UP simply noticed a blurb about the game in a pamphlet they received at TGS. Supposedly, the game to be released will be the original Metal Slug and not one of its many sequels. No release date has been given, but 2007 seems to be a fair guess at this point. We have two words for you SNK: online co-op. Make it happen.

Props for the pic, Richard. You had a *couple* (wink) choices, but Metal Slug X is by far the best Metal Slug ever made.

First Fatal Fury Special was announced for the Xbox Live Arcade, and now Metal Slug is going to be released for the Xbox Live Arcade!

It seems as though the rumor is true: Microsoft will need to add an Xbox Live Arcade categry called "Neo Geo Games."

THAT WOULD BE AWESOME!!!!

Let's make sure that Magician Lord, The Super Spy, Cyber Lip, Last Resort, Baseball Stars Professional, NAM 1975, and many others are also placed on the Xbox Live Arcade!

Oh, one more thing: Did you people notice that THE PLAYSTATION 3 IS NOT BACKWARD COMPATIBLE WITH PS1 OR PS2 GAMES!!! Sony's Ken Kutaragi said that PS1 and PS2 games would be downloadable for a price, similar to Xbox Live Arcade...If the Playstation 3 was backward compatible, you would not need to "Download the games for a price."

Not necessarily Jimmy- there are a lot of good PS2 games that are no longer in print.

Am I the only one tired of seeing games on xbla that I could find just as easily on other systems? Where is the original content? I know there's some stuff coming soon, but jesus, the 360 xbla has been out for almost a year. I don't want to play stuff I can emulate for free, right now, on my computer.

"I don't want to play stuff I can emulate for free, right now, on my computer."

I don't mind..You see, I'd rather play it legally, without a keyboard on a TV. :) Original content would be great, but classics like Metal Slug are needed.

Metal Slug in 16:9 widescreen would be awesome... All that detail and visibility, I know it won't be that way, but I think that would be cool.
