I've got this one for PSP, it's definitely one to pick up especially for this price. Includes Metal Slug 1,2,X,3,4,5, and 6. Not a bad deal at all.

UPDATE: OOS and possibly gone for good. From Newegg:

Deactivated. This item is currently out of stock and it may or may not be restocked.

Thanks, I ordered one.

FYI, reviews on Amazon say the classic controller is not an option and the d-pad doesn't work with the GC controller for those that care. Still a great price, though.

I own this and no classic controller support. It was enough of a bummer that I ended up getting it for PS2, definately the best version of all cause of the dualshock.

I have the PS2 version and the input lag is awful, does anyone with the Wii version know if it's any better in that regard?

This collection is infamous for being a very poor port job.

Bad versions of good games.

Are you talking about the Tatsunoko stick? I think it does work with Metal Slug.

PS2 is definitely the better of the versions to get.

I tested this out. The Tatsunoko stick does not work with Metal Slug Anthology. The Wii sees the Tatsunoko stick as a classic controller.

For anybody who is set on using the Tatsunoko stick with Metal Slug on the Wii, it does work with Metal Slug 1 on the SNK Arcade Classics Vol. 1 Collection.

I tested this on a Wii I have hooked to a Toshiba CRT and another Wii which is connected to a Samsung LCD. I didn't notice any lag on the CRT. There is some noticeable lag on the LCD when in regular viewing modes, but the lag goes away when the LCD is switched to Game mode.

It's in all 3 versions, doesn't matter what tv it's played on. Compared to the original Neo Geo incarnations, they have noticeable input lag. The ps2 version had the least from what I remember.
