These ports are arcade perfect. I downloaded Samurai Showdown, Metal Slug and King of Fighters 94. All play fantastic. Turn off the smoothing though, as the smoothing just doesn't look as good.

Man, I wish stuff like this would be released on the PC. And why not a anniversary edition of Metal Slug for DS? Damn lucky PS owners.
