View Full Version : Anyone Disappointed with Scitron's Famicom CDs?

First I'd like to say it's awesome that Scitron is publishing a lot of classic Famicom/NES music CDs. However, I must say I'm disappointed with the game-title selections. The main problem is that there's too much re-hash. For example, there's Super Mario Bros. music on Game Sound Legend Vol. 1. Next, SMB appears on 20th Ann. Vol. 1. And now, SMB returns in the Megabox collection. In fact, almost every title from the Megabox collection has already been published in earlier Scitron discs. Can't they publish new soundtracks, like Dream Factory, Yoshi, Tetris, Yoshi's Cookie, or SMB3? Just wondering if anyone else felt the same way as I do, that they're reprinting the same music on different CDs instead of presenting us with new music never released on CD before.
When choosing which old titles can be presented, there are other factors which can limit which songs can be used...
From licensing issues to the game company not existing anymore, to other complications where the owners of the rights just aren't willing to reach an agreement...
As for the Megabox, this is just a different approach at reaching a wider audience of people with the same music. It's just part of the marketing to try and offer the contents in as many different ways as possible.
If you already have all the Famicom 20th CDs (like I do) then you don't need to try collecting the Megahouse versions. They do contain the same content, but some people might not have bought those Anniversary cds at first, and got started with the candies instead.
