Wish nintendo would do a Donkey Kong.
Assuming you mean coin-op DK, I wouldn't hold my breath.
a judge ruled Nintendo didn't own the rights to Donkey Kong's code
That would likely explain why coin-op DK never came to the Wii Virtual Console Arcade as well.

When did Stern and Exidy rerelease arcade games?
even Stern, Irem and Exidy have all either rereleased or allowed rerelease of their arcade games.

The games are MUCH more accurately reproduced than in any other retro controller, including the Ms. Pac-Man ones. In fact, they appear to use the original code; for example, you can "insert" two coins by pressing the "B" button and start a two-player game.
I picked it up also, and agree with the above assessment (although I think Mingy Jongo meant 'Pac-Man' instead of 'Ms. Pac-Man' as there are no 'Ms. Pac-Man' ports on the thing.

Is the new Namco PnP worth getting if I already have all of these... or is it simply a "collector thing?"

Also, I still really want to know, are there any company logos at startup other than Namco Bandai's?
I only remember Bandai - If I get a chance this weekend I'll make a short video or take some pics of the startup.

Did they fix Xevious this time around? I don't mean controller-wise; on that previous 12-in-1, gameplay was SERIOUSLY messed up.
This comes with Mappy and was $34.95 (probably less when in stores, discounted!)
Here are the startup screens, in order (sorry for the crappy pics).
It hasn't been mentioned, but Dig Dug scrolls vertically a bit when near the top or the bottom of the screen. Quite shocking at first.
Now, I tried PacManPlus, and I was able to use my pattern from the arcade there as well. These are running the original code, guys (at least the Pacs are).
I wish they would have used the same controller from the *new* Space Invaders PNP.
*EDIT* - The board inside it is tiny. I think I will take one of the Space Invader joysticks (I picked up three - they were $7.99) and put this board inside it.
Wish they'd do another one that twisted for steering. It's ashame they had one that did justice to Pole Position several years ago yet never gave us a gamekey with Pole Position II on it to take full advantage of it.
