Highway crossing frog, where are you?

What relatively current console games contain a port of the original arcade frogger?

I'm putting together a distributed high score tournament, and I'm trying to put together a list of released titles for wii, ps2, ps3, xbox, pc, or mac that contain a port of the original arcade frogger. Are you aware of any titles that people could relatively easily get their hands on at gamestop or mail order that have the original frogger unlocked by default, or is easily unlockable? I know it's pretty easy to find for MAME, but many of the places participating in the event are libraries and they tend to be too skittish to use ROMs.

I did find frogger.net, which is a crappy flash remake, but the scoring and patterns appear to be pretty legit, so that's a good fallback. Players who report scores will include what version they played, so small differences between versions are ok.

So, any discs people can get their hands on that have frogger hidden within?

You can play a Java port of the original Atari version of Frogger online here, no download required. Press Reset to start a game and wait for the music to stop in order to play. Controls are the arrow keys.
