Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announced today that the Midway Arcade Origins, a stunning compilation of more than 30 classic, genre-defining Midway titles from the golden age of arcades will be made available for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 system this holiday season, the collection offers arcade favorites, including Gauntlet, Rampage, Joust, Spy Hunter, Defender, Marble Madness and more.

New players can experience these industry-defining classics, while longtime fans of classic arcade games can re-master their favorite titles with new PlayStation Network Trophies and Xbox 360 Achievements support. Players will also be able to enjoy many games with up to three of their friends in local, co-op multiplayer and post their high scores online.

Midway Arcade Origins, being developed by Backbone Entertainment, combines more than 30 golden age arcade classics on one disc for $29.99.

This is a great deal especially when you work thats less than a dollar per title, no announcement yet on the UK price, but given how exchange rates are thrown out the window with games I expect it will translate to £29.99

The best addition here has to be achievements though and I hope to see a good selection of challenges per title, not just a range of say 40 trophies or achievements for the whole collection, but for those of us who grew up on "the classics" this is a great addition to any collection and should easily pack a good few hours of fun.
