3D Realms commemorated the occasion with a look back, a check on other Wolfenstein games, and the release of a few old historical documents surrounding the game. In addition, id Software is getting into the act by making the price of the iPhone version of Wolfenstein 3D $2 for a limited time. Check it out — you know you've wasted more than $2 on more useless iPhone apps than Wolf3D!
Think what you wish.
One of the primary reasons this was done was an exercise for our programmers on 360 coding, how to interface with Live, etc, etc, etc. This was done on a "smaller" project so that kinks and issues can be worked out for the larger project (DNF).
If you want to chicken little the world, go ahead. Doesn't make it right.
