Have had my eye on these for a while! Keen on getting both on release day and hoping enough people are playing online.
I'm sure they are out now in the U.K.? I'm prob going to pick them both up but it's a case of wait for the price to drop slightly, or will the price sky rocket due to the limited print and because it's "retro gaming"

my local Grainger Games have both these for £14.99 each, as previously stated by others if it was both volumes on one disc i would buy it, as it stands no chance

I've seen a PS4 Box of one of em in my local Game not too long ago, so I know they're in the wild. I think the digital versions of both collections have been on offer a few times in weekly sales on XBONE, so I guess there's always that if the physical versions become rare beasts.

I wanted these just to have them in the collection. If it was £20 for both I would jump on it but the best price for both right is £30

I was in a shop today, had both volumes in by hand at £15 each. I could not do it, I would only play them once then they would become shelf filler

Asteroids and Asteroids Deluxe are games I can play for about 30 minutes every day for some stress release. Tempest too is very good as are quite a few others in the collections. Dare I say I even really really enjoy Pong???

I do love playing lots of these old classics from time to time. Huge nostalgia rush, but games such as Pacman/Space Invaders/Asteroids, i might only play one level and then quit and play another game. I'll get my nostalgia boost and then move on till the next time

The Collections are coming to Switch, and a 3rd volume is on the way.

Wonder if the Switch versions will offer a portrait mode for games that used that screen orientation? The only screenshot in that article shows landscape with huge borders. You don't want the wrong aspect ratio, but that does mean a small playing area in landscape on Switch while undocked.

I have the first 2 on Xbox One and I love them, especially Black Widow, which I am totally addicted to!

So obviously I can't wait for the third installment!
