The Simpsons will hit their 500th episode milestone on February 19th. To start the celebration early, Gracie Films and Twentieth Century Fox teamed up with Konami to release The Simpsons Arcade Game on Xbox Live and PSN. The Xbox Live version is available today for 800 MS points while the PSN version will be available on February 7th for $9.99.

“KONAMI is dedicated to reviving retro titles that gamers have grown to love, and it doesn’t get any better than The Simpsons™ Arcade Game,” said Tomoyuki Tsuboi, President of Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. “The Simpsons is a global phenomenon with a loyal fan base, and we are thrilled to re-launch the arcade game in the downloadable space, introducing fans to a beloved classic on an entirely new platform.”

“Of all The Simpsons video games, this demented classic is my favorite,” said Matt Groening, The Simpsons Creator and Executive Producer.

This port will have online as well as offline 4 player, several game modes, and the never before released Japanese version of the game.
