In response to a purported sceenshot showing PS2 game downloads for PlayStation 3, Sony says the image "must have been mocked up by an excited consumer."
What kind of photoshop idiot would include "Fantavision" "bouncer" etc... Only Sony CORP. would put those suckers up there as an initial release. If it was a FAN MADE PIC... it would have Finaly Fantasy, God of War, etc... I do believe its Real.
Hell they can't even give us PS1 titles so I am not holding out any hope for PS2 titles any time soon. They could have so much of my money if they would only provide me the games I want.
Lets just say whenever Sony said "no plans" for something that something had some chance of becoming real. It isn't the first time they have said it and they always say that for rumored price drops.
Well aren't PS2 games at least 4-5gb's? That'd be a nice long download... oh and they need to just bring FF7 to the PSN already. I'd get that in a heart beat.
The one thing that makes me think that it would happen is that Microsoft offers Xbox Originals and I think Sony would have it in mind to offer the same (PS2 Originals if you will). Halo clocked in at something like 2 GB, so they show that size isn't necessarily a constraint. I think it could be in the works, but something tells me this image is probably fake. PSOne games have the download size in parentheses under the name and price, where these PS2 games don't. It's a small thing, but it seems inconsistent.
That's right if 360 can do it PS3 can do it. And I remember dowloading some 2 gig size demos which isn't far from 4 gig. Anyway the size isn't the issue. It's probably because Sony wants to increase the life of the PS2. They still want people to buy the PS2.
They are on the way
sry I doubt it, at least not until..... Sony releases the PS4 or a PS3 with a 250gb HD. ps2 games are simply just too big, The HD would fill up to fast
Dude sony would do it to the point u can upgrade ur PS3 HDD with a PC SATA 2.4 PC NOTE BOOK 400GB HARD DRIVE OR IS THAT SOME THING U FOR GOT.
Well that's a really good photoshopped image then.
Dam it, Dam it... Dam it..... I mean, Come on' I was so excited and all for nothing...
I still think it might be true and Sony probably doesn't want to let anything out yet.
Sony never respond to things that are wrong, but they always deny rumours that are true so they can announce them themselves. It's coming.
I will wait and see. If they don't say anything at E3 it is fake. I see it came from a fourm post just like from the gamefaqs one about 2.40 being out on the 2nd July which turned out to be right. Also Sony also denied a price cut days before last years E3 and they cut the price.
Yeah, they denied the DualShock controller, the price cut and ect and they came so im guessing this will come, lets wait and see if its unveiled at E3 officially.
Why is SSX there? It was an OK launch title, but there are tons of better games, including first party games. Sony is a very bad liar.
I heard something about downloabable ps2 games on the ps3 long time ago by sony, but that was long time ago. They probably just keeping it as a surpise or something.
ahhahahaah classic. I said the same thing myself. Who is going to put Fantavision or Bouncer on there? Hell, all of those games blow but MGS 2.
For some reason I think they're lying..
sony doesn't lie to their customers do they?
doesn't get there by being honest.
in other words "wait till e3 u muppets!!!"
This will change when PS2s stop selling. Once that happens you can see a big influx of PS2 games for download. Goulet
That screen looks waaaay too real to be fake.
Please let one be ICO. :) I will wait for the now world famous "we don't comment on rumors and speculation (wink, wink)"
yeah, if sony is listening i'm waiting for ICO. i want to give you my $ sony, not some dude on ebay.
Damn, I was thinking that it would have been pretty cool if PS2 game titles could be coming to the PSN. Anyways, Sony needs to bring more downloadable PS1 games each month or something. I could see downloadable PS2 games coming out on the Playstation 4 or something, but not as much on the PS3 because the PS2 really isn't that old compared to the PS1 and a lot of older PS2 games can still be bought online pretty easily, on the other hand, you can't find many PS1 games Online for sale. After the PS2 is discontinued then "maybe" I could see a slight chance of downloadable PS2 games coming to the PSN, but not now because the PS2 has about a year and a half left.
yeah based on sonys "deny it" ways i think that we will be hearing more about this later on maybe at e3. but if it realy is fake i bet the possitive feedback would make them consider making it anyway
seeing is beliving and that picture did show mgs2 and the price, sony does not want to announce it yet thats all,may be they are still working on it or they want to announce it at e3.
It WILL happen. Sony is not dumb enough to let this opportunity slip through the cracks. Its just a matter of when they decide to or are able to act on it (ps2 emulation through software is needed).
There are so many freaking good games on the ps2, why wouldn't put them out? Doesn't Sony realize how much money they would make off of them. I dont know, but something tells me that the PR department of Sony Corp. arent that bright,, its bad enough they have lost billions of dollars already,, it doesn't make sense why they would miss oppourtunities to make more money.
It does. Think of all the people with 40Gbs that can't play the games, there would be uproar.
If that "anonymous source" is true, it would mean that people could finally play all those ps2 games that slipped by from time to time. Sony needs to be smart and just do it, without all the rumors and speculation
cmon droids...you purchased a ps3.
C'mon man...you purchased a 360. And soon you'll have to purchase a 720 in 2009. :3
Translation: "We're not ready to announce it yet." It will happen. Just give it time.
What happened to "we don't comment on rumors..."? Oh wait thats M$.
im shure dark_alex is planning on allowing downloadable games for us ;) dark alex is the best!
i can get old games at gamestop for less than 20. plus i can beat them and return them, it also doesnt take up disc space as opposed to the download, i can bring them to a friends house and there will never be any drm lisencing issues ::cough::360 DLC::cough:: ill take the disc most of the time. besides even the disc version of warhawk was better, wasnt the disc version the only one that supported online split screen?
No you could always play online split screen on warhawk (on servers that allowed it), but you could only use warhawk on one user account (like GT5P)
i thought it is fake. so it is
Hey this is a really good idea - and announce it a month later.
