Excerpt: With the multitude of
emulators available for the PSP, you can get most if not all of the

Excerpt: 2) It includes 21 games (17 classic originals and 4 "arrangement" remakes). That's twice as many as previous Museum releases, and still a couple more than were included on the Namco Museum 50th Anniversary Arcade Collection that was just released for PS2, GameCube, and Xbox.
Excerpt: Namco's back catalog of arcade games is legendary. Some of the greatest arcade games ever released bear the Namco logo, and for years now, the company has been issuing and reissuing these games in various compilation packages. The rundown is always pretty similar, and it usually includes Pac-Man, Ms. Pac-Man, Galaga, Dig Dug, and so on down the line. Now, the collection is coming to yet another platform with the release of Namco Museum Battle Collection for the PSP.
Pros: Nice, long game list, Lots of display options, Controls just fine, Gets the emulation down just fine, Maniac options menu gives you a few additional challenges
Cons: Game sharing demo seems pretty pointless, Demands that you update your firmware before playing, Almost all these games have been released in most of the previous Namco collections
