Established in late 1999, Tokyo-based Hamster Corporation started publishing software for the PlayStation in 2000 under their 'Major Wave' label. Initially the collection was solely comprised of budget-price re-releases of out-of-print PSone games like Raiden DX and Magical Drop F.
 
 
In 2002 they launched Arcade Hits, a Major Wave sub-label that focused on classic arcade titles and arcade-related PSone re-releases.
Lastly came their PS2 Oretachi Gasen Zoku series in 2005. Translated as 'My Game Center Family' ('Gasen' being a shortened expression for 'Game Center') the collection also focuses on classic arcade games, but instead of being simple re-issues of pre-existing titles they are all-new 'deluxe' presentations of arcade cult classics. The series lastest until 2007.
Each release comes highly recommended, and includes no less than 7 seperate items:
 
 

1 - PS2 game disc (perfect emulation of arcade original)
2 - Image DVD (promo material & expert gameplay)
3 - Game Music CD (remixed BGM tracks by group 'Super Sweep')
4 - Instructions Booklet
5 - Official Guide Book (game info, tactics and advice)
6 - Replica display card
7 - Collection card
