Give me a fucking break.

So MS decides to tell Cave to Fuck off with Ikaruga enhanced style ports of two of their best shmup's (Ketsui and DDP Black), yet Frogger 2 gets approved?? MS even said they didn't want the arcade being full of "arcade ports", but yea, let's ignore the fact these two games have never been in the US, let alone on a console, but Frogger 2, that's important enough to get through.

Wow, MS, just wow.

I called my lady friend last night and said my buddy had to beat off on my chest, she is kinda pissed at me, but it was the best idea I had all night, and I stand by it.

So Frogger 2 the atari game or Frogger 2 the 3D game? The old game doesn't have coins, but the 3D one from 2000 does so I imagine it's that one?

If it was a new game, then I'd be excited for. Pac-Man Championship Edition was a nice surprise, IMO

That'd be nice but going by the name title I'd say its wishful thinking. No clue one which one it will be till we get more info, but unless its a Pac-Man CE type deal...does anyone care?

I still want my last achievement on Frogger! Too bad the online mode is a lag-fest...and I can't ever find anyone that can stay alive long enough. :l

EDIT: I even played it yesterday. But the one person I found online couldn't live past the first level.

The only reason I care is because MS blocked an awesome company from releasing very awesome shmups for Live, which definitely would have come out over here... first time on a home console, first time in America (I think).

Instead, they told the company there are too many arcade ports, they want original games, their stuff wasn't going to get on XBLA. So the company now put them on a disc, which has almost no chance of being picked up for the US, and I don't feel like modding my 360 to import it.

Yet, they'll bow to Konami's every whim it seems, who wants to flood the arcade with trashy ports of games no one cares about.

I just really don't understand the double standards, at all. I wouldn't give a shit if Frogger 2 was on XBLA or not usually, but the fact it's taking the place of two very well made games is painful, simply because MS wants to suck up to Konami and leave small developers in the dust.

I see your point Roufuss, I meant does anyone care what version of Frogger 2 it is, if its the arcade or the DC port either way, I'm sure not a lot of people will buy it, seems like a waste of space.

Pfft, if you take a look at Major Nelson's top 10 Live games purchased he does every week, unless a game is complete and utter trash, it is ALWAYS at the #1 spot for purchased games each week.

They'll make money on this, lots of casuals will buy it on name recognition.

If they are smart, they should not sell this for 10 bucks. Do what Penny Arcade did, bring out three games, with 5 levels per game and charge $7.50 per episode. People will be buying it left and right and saying how good of a deal it is.

What game IS this?

It's not "Frogger 2: Threedeep!" (From the Atari 8-bit/Coleco/etc days)... was this an arcade game? (I consider myself fairly knowledgable about classics but this just looks... horrible....)

Can we list this as a title likely to be delisted before it even comes out?

I wish they gave us the option to veto the listing of games on XBL during 90-percent into their creation - just as a proper '"you suck" to those who get vetoed.

This would be one of those games. Veto.

Price is going up. 400 point games are going to be less and less.

Oh, come the Fuck on. 800 pts for this is ridiculous, considering I regret paying 400 for the first frogger. This reminds me of how people bitched about the 800 points for the Pac-Man CE, because it was just another Pac-Man, but this, this frogger does not seem worth it in the least. Atleast I get to save my Ms points this week(but where is Happy Tree Friends :(?)

you know what? the reason we created GAMEstop in the first place was to serve GAMErs. if we didnt want to serve GAMErs we would have called it wal mart stop and sold baby items and food and a small selection of overpriced gaming software for high prices. and not thea bility to sell crappy old games no one wants anymore.

This is a brand new game, so I'll at least give the demo a shot. But even if this game is good it won't get any love launching against Commandos 3.
I am blocking your ugly signature!

Huge mistake charging 800 points for a Frogger game. I hope nobody buys it.

I was a big fan of the idea of XBLA but all the crap they have thrown out has just disgusted me. This is just another game that pushes away any interest I have in following xbla releases.
