The Simpsons Arcade Game Coming to PSN and XBLA
If you grew up in New England, surely you would know about the American restaurant chain called the Ground Round. As a child it was one of the top places I would wanted to dine. Not because the food was incredible, in fact, it wasn’t great at all. But they had one thing…and that was a small arcade room. I would order my food, and beg my Mom for a few quarters and mash some buttons as my burger was being grilled.
Looking back on it, there were two titles I distinctly remember playing all the time at the ol’ Round, and both titles were developed by Konami, AND both were extremely popular 90′s TV shows. One was Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. And the other…the FREAKING The Simpsons.
Over the years, we had numerous ports of the Turtles version. Heck, just a few years ago, Konami released a perfect arcade port to Xbox Live and PSN, which I — along with many other gamers — downloaded.
When TMNT was released on these current generation of systems, I couldn’t help but wonder when (or if) they would release The Simpsons.
Thankfully Konami is about to change all that in a few short days. Starting on February 3, Xbox owners will be able to download The Simpsons Arcade game for 800 MS points ($10).
PS3 users will have to wait a tad longer, until the seventh of this month. However, if they have a PlayStation Plus account, the title will have the fantastic price tag of FREE! Not a bad deal, eh? If they don’t subscribe to Plus, it will also cost $10.
Either way, you should be EXCITED! “¡ay, caramba!“
