Sure - it'll be bought for all of two weeks. No one's heading into the store two weeks from now and buying an Olympic game.

How cool would a 360 Live Marketplace game of old-school Olympic arcade stuff have been?

Track and Field and Track and Field II should be available for the Nintendo Revolution. Every NES game ever, right?

Track and Field is arguably one of the greatest inventions in modern technological history.

If this game had Curling, I might consider getting it. Might.

I don't know why, but that game seems kind of fun to me.

I was thinking the same thing. Curling should be pretty easy to do in a video game.

I think if done right, an olympic game could be pretty cool. Couldn't they add hockey by taking the NHL2K engine, trim it down to the national teams and change the player names?

Add some good atmosphere with opening & medal ceremonies, the olympic theme etc. I think it would be a decent game.

I remember one of the most fun I had with an Olympic-themed game was the USA Basketball Game that came out before the '92 Olympics.

It was a Sega Genesis game and it ran using the same engine as EA's Bulls vs. Lakers game. The game included real players from most of the international squads that competed in that year's Olympics. Playing with the Dream Team was fun, but they had an All-World Team on there that could do some damage as well.

Here's some info on it:

Curling was on a PSone game for Nagano in '98...not sure if you can really find it easily....I'd also buy this if it had curling, sounds stupid but I enjoy the sport. I'm actually gonna take a course over 5 nights at the Detroit Curling Club in March, the tactics/physics of the sport are pretty cool, tho I've been watching on Canadian TV since I was like 8

I have the Nagano game for N64. I rented the game, got addicted to Curling, and went out and bought it because of it. Back then they never showed Curling on TV, so I had no idea how to play it, but once I figured out the rules, I couldn't stop playing. Thinking about this has me wanting to hook my N64 back up.
