After the announcement of MSX support in Nintendo Wii's virtual console, Microsoft announced their next-gen console, the Xbox 360 is to add several classic Konami and Namco arcade games in their Live Arcade including Contra, Dig Dug, Track & Field (Hyper Olympic) and Yie Ar Kung-Fu. The latter will be exclusively available in Japan only, for the time being. Several other games such as Frogger, Galaga, Pac-Man and Time Pilot are already available on the Live Arcade service.
