EA Replay unveiled

[PSP] Collection of 16-bit classics to hit handhelds in November

Megapublisher Electronic Arts announced today that it'll be dusting off 14 of its old 16-bit games - some classic, others less so - and jamming them together into a compilation called EA Replay, due to hit PSPs on Nov. 7.

As has become standard for such collections, players will be able to challenge each other in certain games via an ad-hoc connection. Additionally, you'll be able to save your game at any point in any of the games (thank God) and unlock original game art as you play. Better yet, it'll retail for 20 bucks.

As for the games themselves, they appear to be culled from the Genesis and Super Nintendo versions of each title. Here's the full roster:

B.O.B.
Budokan
Desert Strike
Jungle Strike
Haunting Starring Polterguy
Mutant Leage Football
Road Rash
Road Rash II
Road Rash III
Syndicate
Ultima: The Black Gate
Virtual Pinball
Wing Commander
Wing Commander: Secret Missions

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

After graduating from college in 2000 with a BA in journalism, I worked for five years as a copy editor, page designer and videogame-review columnist at a couple of mid-sized newspapers you've never heard of. My column eventually got me a freelancing gig with GMR magazine, which folded a few months later. I was hired on full-time by GamesRadar in late 2005, and have since been paid actual money to write silly articles about lovable blobs.
