Why hasn't anyone made a big-budget movie of Dig Dug yet? In fact, nobody's even made a crazy hi-def Xbox or Playstation version of it! How is this possible?!? While we sulk, check out our video game roundup, featuring video game bundles from Walmart, a tempting pre-order on the upcoming Madden NFL 13, and more. And there are lots of excellent savings in our daily video game deals as well.
