As Gamerbytes points out, the pricing seems a bit lop-sided. While the price of Volume 1 is equal to what you'd pay for the three titles on Xbox LIVE Arcade (and let's face it, twenty-bucks for Symphony of the Night alone would be worth it), the second collection does not. In fact, it means you'll be paying $5 more dollars than you would with the digital downloads.
Bringing XBLA games to retail on a compilation disc is nothing new, but it usually means it's priced in line with the digital releases. Being able to grab Symphony of the Night is great news for anyone who doesn't have Internet access, but let's be real -- who's going to pay $20 to get the original Contra, Rush'n Attack, and Track and Field?
