* In addition to a number of collections that EA and Origin put out combining unrelated games that they had release together on Compact Disc, there was also the ''VideoGame/WingCommander Kilrathi Saga'' collection: The first three games, re-released for Windows 95, with remastered audio and music. For the first two games, it was pretty much the only way to play the games on modern computers (aside from the MS-DOS issue, the original games played ''ridiculously'' fast on a Pentium computer). After the game went out of print, copies were known to sell on Website/EBay for $100 or more. At least one copy sold for $300. Despite this, ElectronicArts declined to do a rerelease because they were unsure of there being enough demand for it.

* Creator/{{Nintendo}} pulled the UpdatedRerelease variant of this trope again with the ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime Trilogy'' for the UsefulNotes/{{Wii}}. While Japan got separate {{Updated Rerelease}}s in the form of New Play Control ''Prime'' and ''Prime 2'' at $30 (equivalent) a pop, the compilation is $10 less and includes ''Prime 3'', so you actually save $60 if you didn't already have them...if you bought the game while it was being printed. For a good while, it was out-of-print, and effectively became a LimitedSpecialCollectorsUltimateEdition that was almost entirely [[http://www.ebay.com/ctg/99386649?_trksid=p4340.l2644 in the hands of eBay scalpers.]] CrackIsCheaper. Fortunately, in January 2015, Nintendo rereleased ''Trilogy'' on the Wii U eShop for a much more affordable price of $20.

* ''VideoGame/BitTrip SAGA'' is a compilation of all six ''BIT.TRIP'' games for the Nintendo3DS. ''BIT.TRIP COMPLETE'', likewise, is a compilation for UsefulNotes/{{Wii}} that takes the original [=WiiWare=] games and gives them DifficultyLevels, online leaderboards, challenge modes, and UnlockableContent. Notable that this will be the first time the games have gone retail with the former collection receiving a digital version in late 2012, making both also available digitally on both platforms (albeit still individually on the Wii).
