"Hi everyone! I hope that you are all as excited as we are after E3 for the rapidly approaching launch of PlayStation 4. Duly, we thought this would be the ideal time to take a look back at the history of PlayStation." (PS Vita, PS3, PSP, Retro)

Would much rather have a sale on newer games. PS1 games are relatively cheap anyway, but I only ever consider buying newer games off the store when they're on sale because of the ridiculous pricing.

I agree the pricing for ps1 games are absolutely ridiculous.
Xaphy  +   485d ago
ps1 games should cost around 1$.
cpayne93  +   485d ago
1$ would be retarded. Much more valuable than that.
sdozzo  +   485d ago
They should all be $4.99 regular price.
Xof  +   485d ago
Not really. $5-10 is very reasonable.
jazzking2001  +   485d ago
its costly >.<

will this happen in the US?
Xof  +   485d ago
Probably not.

Fortunately for me, I already own every PS1 game worth buying... that they offer digitally.

Seriously, what the hell is the hold-up on Suikoden 2?

Konami doesn't like money from us gaijin apparently.
Xof  +   485d ago
@DragonKnight: last time I checked, it wasn't up in the Japanese store either (otherwise I would own it) so that's not really the issue.

In the US, people will make EU PSN accounts and still be able to download/buy every game they want :D

i love ps1 but seriously why pay for its games when you can emulate them on the PC all free?
Cam977  +   485d ago
For use on the PS3, PS Vita or PSP.
thecurseddevil  +   484d ago
there are homebrew ps1 emulators available for ps3 too.

but while using them you dont get any guarantee whether a particular rom will work or not unlike when you purchase from psn.
Cam977  +   480d ago
And you support the developer, considering they're still present
SurgicalMenace  +   485d ago
Well Microgenius some of us prefer to support the industry instead of just our own convenience. Lol I am pretty sure if the industry collapsed, you would express so much angst without taking any accountability for what you could have done to help it flourish. Not saying you getting PS1 games for free is going to destroy Sony, but I am 100% sure that if someone wanted something you had you would not appreciate them just walking in your house to STEAL it. We should add to the industry not take away from it. Lmbo
SirBradders  +   485d ago
I agree with supporting the industry and i always buy games but with if i have purchased that game already years ago in my youth and maybe even twice (the plat versions) then shouldn't i be entitled to emulate.
Snookies12  +   485d ago
Yep, I emulate the games that I buy. No harm in that, considering you've already purchased them. Especially so for PS2 and Gamecube titles. Considering you can bump up the resolution so much. :]

Im still waiting for Legend of Dragoon to come to europe.
gta2800  +   485d ago
I'm waiting on Brave Fencer Musashi. Would love to see Megaman Legends as well but I rememeber reading something about how they can't because of some licensing issues with the actors :/
e-p-ayeaH  +   483d ago
just release the NTSC version and be done with it.

Sony isnt really smart when it comes about re-releasing classic games on the store.

Bloody hell... time to spend more money on games I would probably not play again....
Just bought Spyro Trilogy for £3.59
Vip3r  +   485d ago
Medal of Honor Underground. That and Ace Combat 3 I think. I loved those games.
dendenmooshi  +   485d ago
I loved playing monster rancher. I loved putting inc CDs to see which monsters i get. Then I would grow attached to those monsters.

Then they took them away from me :(. Poor Suezo.
SurgicalMenace  +   485d ago
I understand what you guys are saying about emulating what you own, but what micro was saying about not paying is what I was refuting. I understand if you want a digital copy of a game you paid for, asdo I, but to advocate STEALING over supporting an industry we all love is unacceptable. This is definately something that needs to be corrected before it gets any further out of hand.
microgenius  +   484d ago
i understand your point and also appreciate your logic but to me supporting industry ((particularly SONY)) is to purchase their current products which is more profitable for them i have spent 1500+ this gen just for games let alone my YLODed launch phat and new console etc...[never regret cause i played with it to death ;-)]
but i dont think getting 2 or 3 1$ games for free would hurt sony or industry
sorry for bad language im not native

I remember the day i bought my ps1 i was 17 i think and had saved up for months to get it when it came out, those where the days very exciting...................... ....but the good thing is i am getting that same feeling now about the ps4 and im in my 30s lol. Sony really know what they are doing i tell ya, if you like gaming dont miss out on the ps4.
Guwapo77  +   484d ago
FF7 on the PS1. I know my PS hated me. I didn't turn that system off for 30 days straight.
G20WLY  +   484d ago
I played this for the first time on my Vita to see what the fuss was about - love it!

And you get to map the controls, even adding front/rear touch if you like. I think the controls sometimes don't age as well as the gameplay/story, so this breathes new life into older games :)

And of course, it looks prettier on the OLED screen and you can adjust screen sizing ;)
Guwapo77  +   484d ago
I'm afraid to revisit it. I don't want my memories tarnished by the dated graphics. I'm glad you have the chance to experience it. The story is one of the best ever written for a video game (of course that is highly opinionated).
