This is such a cool idea! I wish Nintendo and Sony would do something like this for their major anniversary years.

True I loved collecting all the pieces of PS history. The closest thing Nintendo has is Smash Bros.

I am curious to try it out on my Xbox via Edge, since I think I'd enjoy this on the TV more than I would on my PC.
