Any free/discounted shipping coupons available for this?

Also, can anyone who has it confirm that after HDD install of the arcade titles, you can play them without the disc inserted?

You always HAVE to have the disc in to play the game, including this one. Yes I have installed it. As a matter of fact, it seems to play the XBLA games off the disc even if you have installed it. No matter, $10 for 9 XBLA games plus 30 others is FTW.

My problem was this hoarder took all of them including my one copy as I helped her.

Thx for the quick response, I'd basically be buying this for the Xbox Live games so no play w/o disc is probably a deal-breaker for me. But you certainly get a lot of gaming for your $10.

Pac-Man Championship Edition alone is worth the $10.

Having the disc in is a small price to pay for the amount of XBLA games you're getting. Buying them separately on XBL would cost way more than $10. Plus you can sell the disc once you get bored of it.

And yes, Pac-Man C.E. is awesome.

I paid $15 from EBGames a few months ago and thought I was getting a great deal. I was just playing Galaga today--definitely a recommended purchase!

I would SO get this, but I already have it! This is an amazing deal for such a group of games. I highly recommend this, and for $10, everyone should get this.

It should also be noted that only the 9 XBLA arcade games have achievements/leader board support. The other 30 games are pretty much "offline" experiences. This is still a great deal for those of you who missed out on the Gamestop sale.

This happens with the other 'Arcade compilations' discs as well. I guess it's a bit off topic, but why would it sound like it needs to read the disc everytime you're playing the games. What's the benefit of installing it, if it's still reading the disc?
This does not happen with the other regular game discs.

Picked one up after work today-- they were a little hard to find & still marked at $19.99. Scanned correctly as $9.98, though.

Had a blast reliving my old 80s arcade days, playing Xevious. Thanks OP!

Good game. I picked it up at GS during the Game Days when it was $15. I still feel like I got a decent enough deal being able to use cheap credit and not pay tax.

Does this game differ in achievements from their respective titles alone? Meaning, if I owned Pac-Man CE, Galaga Legions, and a handful of others would this just be those same achievements or do they actually list them seperately under Namco Museum Virtual Arcade?

Sucks that I own nearly every one of those games, but getting it might be worth it if the achievements stacked plus the 30 other odd games on there.

The XBLA titles are the same versions as the ones you'd download from the store. When you play pac/ms pac man or pacman CE, you're playing the XBLA version of the game, not a "namco museum" game that has its own achievements.

Oh well, so much for that. If I didn't own 7 of the 9 titles already, i'd jump.

Thanks for the heads up, I found a copy at my local TRU. I didn't own any of the XBLA games so this was a steal.
