    SNK Playmore is going to be giving support to the Virtual Console, since Neo Geo titles are coming if I am not mistaken.

    Hexic 2? Aww man, I still haven't gotten all of my Achievement points on Hexic HD yet!

    Can't wait for Super Puzzle Fighter 2, that one is a must buy for me.

    Nice to know, but I remember them specifically stating they would have games for XBLA starting with Fatal Fury Special.

    Hexic 2 and Puzzle Quest FTW, and i'll likely pick up Puzzle Fighter. I think War World was one that I was interested in, but we'll see how many points I have sitting around. They go fast with so many good games coming out. What's this Geon game though? Never heard of it.

    Hexic2, Puzzle Fighter (I do love that game) and Streets of Rage 2 will force me to put some points into the Live Arcade for the first time since Castlevania.

    They advertised Sonic the Hedgehog as having enhanced graphics as well. Don't expect much there.

    Has any Live title that had enhanced Graphics, had anything really changed? Maybe a few more blurs to make it look better, but nothing that mattered.

    Double Dragon, Frogger, Jetpac Refueled, Marathon, Bomberman, Prince of Persia, Centipede/Millipede, Missle Command, plus a couple I'm forgetting, all had completely new or completely redrawn graphics.

    As far as I know, Catlevania is the only one that had the blur applied as an enhancement to the graphics.

    I downloaded the demo for Sonic, but I don't remember if there was an option to "ehance" (blur) the sprites.

    where is the love for street of rage 3? the fact you could run made it awesome to the power of 10.

    also track and field will be super fun!

    Not a bad group of titles. Between some of those and some other demos I downloaded earlier this week, going to have to buy some points soon.
