The latest episode of the PlayStation Blogcast has revealed what's coming to the PlayStation Store on August 14th, including the PS2 classic Shinobi.
meh just 2 imports. maybe picking up shinobi.
PS2 classics shouldn't be 10$ tbh.. Some of these games cost lower than 6$ on ebay. Getting rid of backwards compatibility was a smart move for sony. Now they can just charge these classics for 10$
Some PS classics cost lower, but some are also priced a lot higher than $10 online. So I think it's a good deal overall.
I don't mind the price. But over here in europe the list of games to choose from sucks. Apparently train simulators are PS2 classics. Where is Final fantasy XII, Rogue Galaxy, Dark cloud, Dark chronicle, Shadow hearts? ect
I bought Dark Cloud 2 and Rogue Galaxy recently, and they were $30 and $20, respectively.
For those that have not played Shinobi and enjoy brutal gaming it is a title not to be missed. It can make Ninja Gaiden seem like a cakewalk.
they should have prices depending on popularity
i dont know why people buy these ps2 classic games off the psn store...when there's no more psn store in 10 years from now....what are you gonna do???? exactly!! nothing you can do, those games will be gone!!! GET THE ACTUAL GAME CAUSE THAT ONE WILL STAY WITH YOU FOR AS LONG AS YOU WANT just take care of it
I don't own a PS2(nor do I want to dedicate a spot in my entertainment system to it) and I've always wanted to try out Shinobi and some other PS2 games. Now, you know why some people buy PS2 games off the PSN store.
I wonder if they have a spike in sales when they announce a specific title is being removed.
they'll go from selling 5 copies a week to 20 maybe
For those games, I doubt there will be too much of a spike.
I don't know. Magical Drop F might be awesome. It has the word Magical in the title, so it has to be at least a 9 out of 10.
Haha I checked on Gamerankings and it has one review from Gamespot, they gave it a 7.5.
Shinobi is an awesome PS2 game glad to see that coming to the PSN
If only it were an HD release.
I said the same thing; Shinobi is WAY overdue for an remake, remix, sequel...or something. Shinobi is a great franchise with tons of potential. Sega better get on their game, no pun.
@KrimsonKody Why my good sir, there is! Nightshade is a direct sequel to Shinobi. Pretty good game too >.> http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... Also there's a 3DS sequel too that was recently released. http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
Whats a de-activation?
It's when they de list game from the psn store. Example: Teenage mutant ninja turtles Re shelled is no longer in the store but it's in your download list.
So if someone wanted TMNT Reshelled, their out of luck?
WHAT!? I didn't know they delisted TMNT... well, that sucks for me :/
ah thank you kingPoS. I thought that but i didnt think they would actually do it.
Not necessarily. They removed Calling All Cars from the store, and its not in my download list either.
@KwietStorm Huh? Are you positive? I never heard of Calling All Cars being removed from PSN. In fact i recently just downloaded it when i had to redownload all my games... Such a good game offline and online. Too bad they took down the online. But anyway, im pretty sure it's still there. Im too lazy to go check, but if you google it there's no news of it being taken down. Plus, taking down a payed-for psn game and not allowing people who bought it to redownload it would obviously receive so much backlash from the community... it'd be everywhere on N4G. D: Maybe they took down the free version that came with Qore?
The only games I have that aren't in my list are Flow & Stacking. And that's because they were free promotions, this was before psn+ happened.
Flow, and Ragdoll Kungfu are three games that aren't on my list but that I got from promotions.
Mind boggling. What is the point of removing products from your digital store? The only space they take up is digital, its not like they are actually taking up physical space in a store. And obviously they are still on the PSN servers, if they are able to be re-downloaded if purchased. Anyone have a good reason for it?
It might be due to license issues. The company that is publishing it currently may no longer have the rights to release it, so it can't be sold anymore. However Sony still keeps it in the servers for those that have the license to play the game to be able to download it. Just a guess.
If that's true (which would suck), pretty much every game not published by Sony will eventually be removed from the store? Seems an insane way of doing business :p
We need Shinobido : Imashime to comes on PS2 titles !
This exactly why a digital only console doesn't sit well with me. Out of print games can still be obtained, the same can't be said digital games. I like downloadable/streaming games too, I just don't want it to be the only choice.
Gimme Papa y Yo! That title looks funky. Hope it's not too much. I want to pre-order it and get that free theme but don't have PS+.
Haven't seen too much about CS:Go, when it was first announced I figured it would be all over the place.
this is why digital only is no good.
