XBLA users crave Konami titles

IGN conducted an extensive poll on their message boards asking members to rank games from a list of "more than 250 classic and more recent titles across all gaming platforms" they'd like to see ported to the Xbox Live Arcade service. The final ten include not one, not two, not three, but four classic Konami side-scrollers! We already knew these were going to be popular, but this is a shutout:

  • 10. Bomberman
  • 9. Mike Tyson's Punchout
  • 8. ChuChu Rocket
  • 7. Street Fighter Alpha 3
  • 6. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time
  • 5. Goldeneye
  • 4. Mortal Kombat II
  • 3. The Simpsons
  • 2. X-Men
  • 1. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Konami could be sitting on a goldmine here! Add in some four-player co-op over Live, with voice support, tag on some affordable pricetags, and these things are evergreen moneymakers. I'm guessing they're already working on it.
