    The Mega Man Anniversary Collection is the best way to play the first 8 games in the series on the cheap. Let's compare it to its closest competitor in terms of convenience the Wii U Virtual Console you can buy the 6 NES games for 4.99 each and Mega Man 7 for 7.99. In all that's 37.93 not including taxes.
    The Mega Man Anniversary Collection for the PlayStation 2 can be purchased NEW in

    The Mega Man Anniversary Collection for the PlayStation 2 can be purchased NEW in 2015 for 13.09 in the year 2015 which includes the PLAYSTATION version of Mega Man 8 which is not on the E-Shop along with 2 arcade fighting games. The games are emulated SLIGHTLY better on E-Shop but not enough for me, myself to really care. If you want to play Mega Man 1-8 in the cheapest most convenient way buy this collection. Just don't buy it on the GameCube, the jump and shoot buttons are switched
    which in my opinion ruins the whole collection on GAMECUBE the PlayStation version keeps the buttons how the should be X to jump and Square to shoot (X=A and Square=B). Not sure about the Xbox version
    though.

    It's not the best collection pack, but it is certainly worth picking up if you are a fan of the series. Pros: Excellent ports of 10 retro Mega Man games with an additional audio reproduction, remixed soundtrack, and mid-game saving system. Cons: At least half of the games can be a bit too repetitious or frustrating.

  1. A must-own for any fan of the series. It contains great ports of the first 8 games plus the option of playing them with slightly enhanced graphics and hints, as well as easy and hard difficulties and the ability to start with 3 or 5 lives.
  2. This is what Mega Man is all about. Its creative level and enemy design, difficulty, and easy controls are what made Mega Man a classic from day one.
  3. Here's to the simpler things in life, and to Mega Man on his 15th birthday.
