I actually think it's great Microsoft is re-releasing 30 retro games for $30!
This pack has the chance to open up retro gaming to some newbies in the current generation.
And it actually supports the studio that made the game whereas if people just downloaded illegal roms, it wouldn't.
Plus if it sells well, it could open the door for more official retro re-releases in the future.
Also, don't forget, Microsoft spent/risked 375 Millions dollars to get Rare and they often lose money on the hardware side as it is. While some may see them as an evil empire (as with most large companies), their brand has lost steam in recent years and don't think it is impossible for them to go belly up one day or at the least they could downsize. Remember, Atari was once the fastest growing in the history of the world. Love em or hate em, they provide jobs for many people besides Bill Gates, even here in the states and I would hate for anyone to lose their job because their leader is demonized for being a rich, smart businessman.
