    According to TeamXbox, Capcom is going to do a remake of the original Bionic Commando for XBLA and PSN.

    Geez, it's like Capcom has a data feed directly from my brain these days.
    This is exactly what I wanted.

    Rock on. Was curious to if they were going to do that with the new Bionic Commando coming out soon.

    Remake, or rerelease? If it's a rerelease, I have better ways to play it. They use the word "remake" pretty losely these days- "Oh yeah, it's a remake- everything is the same but you can track you high scores on Xbox live!"

    Kotaku said it is going to be a 3D remake, so I imagine it'll have polygons instead of sprites.

    I heartily approve of the trend in the last year or two of remaking classic games with modern graphics engines, and will certainly buy this.

    Provided this is a remake of the NES version and not the horrible arcade game. Which I don't think Capcom would be dumb enough to do, but you never know.

    Wonder what they'll do with the "resurrected Hitler" plot of the original game?

    So glad it's the NES version being remade and not the arcade version.

    yeah, like if they ever remade Rygar's 2D game, I would much much more prefer the NES version than the arcade. Rygar NES is still one of my favorite games to replay nowadays.

    Did I see that right?

    If you have Bionic Commando Rearmed on your HDD, then it opens up the original skin for the new Bionic Commando?

    Awesome!

    I haven't even played this yet and I'm convinced this is the best Live Arcade game yet.
