Castlevania : Symphony Of The Night Headed To Live Arcade

Microsoft has announced that Konami's hit platformer Castlevania: Symphony of the Night will be released in its next regular Xbox Live Arcade update on March 21st, the first PlayStation game to make the leap to the service.

its not to pricey for the quality of game.. it just breaks out of the 400 point retro tag... considering it is not a new game it would be consider retro... thus it would have been expected to be 400 points...

but like i said, still worth it.

Games like Galaga, Dig Dug, Ms. Pac-Man, Defender, etc., have all been 400. I consider those retro. But games like SF2T, UMK3 and Worms, all 12-15 years old, have all been 800. SOTN was released in 1997, a great year for games (FF7, Quake II, Fallout, GoldenEye 007, etc.). I think SOTN is well worth the $10. Any fan will gladly pay this.

I knew there was a reason for my saving some Live points for a while. Can't wait.
