Unless a wider audience is made aware of these facts, unless it reaches meme status the wider world isn't aware of that.

It's not that easy. If only it was that easy. They have to get the rights for the music featured in the game as well as any other legal hurdles such as in game licensing like Pizza Hut or whatever. It isn't just as simple as get the rights for the game and the property and wham, compile it into a collection. It takes time and that's the difference between those two Konami collections and Dotemu's Double Dragon Trilogy.
