Namco Bandai makes a push towards digital distribution

Namco Bandai intends to bring their catalog of games, including hard-to-find classics, to the consumers’ fingertips by making more extensive use of Xbox Live’s Games on Demand service as well as PlayStation Network. A move that’s essential to their corporate worldwide strategy, Namco Bandai America’s vice president of online development Robert Stevenson says.

So far just a few titles (listed below) have been confirmed for release, though expect more to be announced “in the coming months.”
