Wolfenstein 3-D on XBL & PSN

I was pretty surprised to see this 17 year old title up on each respective downloadable network. It's being used a promotional tool to drum up hype for the release of the new Wolfenstein game coming out, which should be a good game by the looks of things. That's all well and good, but considering it's just a straight port, why isn't it a free download? I mean, sure, it was good at the time, but it's aged badly and this version has no graphical improvements of any kind. Even the source code is freely available. I doubt it cost a lot to port this game, it's not graphically intensive (haha...yeah) and even the iPhone version recieved a nice graphics update, while the console port gets nada...what gives?

My advice? Get the iPhone version if you have one and don't pay for such a poor port of a 17 year old game! There's no better way to tell the developers you're not happy with what they released.
