That's kinda ridiculous. £14.99 for each volume, both have around 50 games. Or shell out £15 total for Activision Anthology and Atari Anthology on PS2 and have ~130 of the best games on two discs with no installation or updates required!
Also i recently played the Atari collection of these and for someone like me who grew up with old systems slightly newer than the 2600, they're just a little too primitive; most being variations of pong or simple action games. If the sets don't hold any nostalgia to you personally then it's possible that you'd be wasting your money on these compilations. Just food for thought.
No, i'm not angry. That's just how i write.

And don't forget its probably not the same teams working on the same compilations. Knowing Atari's history of the brand being sold and owned by other companies, probably wasnt. :lol:
