Wolfenstein 3D re-released on PSN, XBLA

Wolfenstein 3D, the game that paved the way for first-person shooters, is now available again on PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade. The game had been pulled after Bethesda Softworks acquired id Software, but it's back up again for $5 (400 MSP).

The Bethesda Blog made the announcement. Wolfenstein had originally been released on the platforms in 2009, but the Bethesda deal required it to be re-rated, as Pete Hines told Joystiq. With another Wolfenstein on the way, and starring B.J. Blazkowicz no less, putting out the original only makes sense.
