7 PS2 series that need to be on the PS3

With the prevalence of new series on the Playstation 3 such as LittleBigPlanet, some of the old series which defined the Playstation 2 have been ignored and merely placed on the shelf. Video game and technology site p8i.com presents a list of the 7 most deserving and interesting series which should be developed for the Playstation 3. (ICO, Maximo: Ghosts to Glory, okami, Onimusha 1, PS2, PS3, Shadow of the Colossus, Shinobi III, Sly Cooper)

As soon as I saw the first 2 games i closed the article. I guess no one told these guys about The Last Guardian.

You save me a click. Thanks
Lucreto  +   1952d ago
I want Suikoden. I miss the series. I just hope it is on PS3 as least.
ColossiSlayer  +   1952d ago
3 Games
Any Questions?
dirthurts  +   1952d ago
You forgot
Twisted Metal

But great list non the less.
Sarcasm  +   1952d ago
Legacy of Kain with the soul reaver or with Kain himself?

I'd like to see both.
cmrbe  +   1952d ago
There are many mnay more like Jak, Dark Cloud, Syphon Filter, clolony wars, ZOE etc etc
that should and they will. Its at least ten years cycle for the PS3. You can bet your bottom you will see most of them before the PS3 is put to rest in another 8 years or more.

Again, its a marathon, not a sprint. Sony will always have the edge when it comes to franchise.

Sotc and ico on that list equals fail
They're both part of the same series to which the third game "the last guardian" IS on ps3.

So I'll go ahead and replace those two games with Kingdom hearts and Ace combat.
Homicide  +   1952d ago
Terrible list. Having both SotC and Ico on there is fail. Also Okami isn't a series - there's only one game. Personally, I would like to the Shin Megami Tensei, Fatal Frame (why did it go to Wii :(, Twisted Metal and Kingdom Hearts series go to the PS3.

Nice list, i am sure Sly Cooper will come to PS3, not sure about the rest but i hope they come.
Noah  +   1952d ago
the one series i would like to see on PS3 is Persona.
N4GAddict  +   1952d ago
Hopefully, the P5 PS3 rumors are true.
GrandDragon  +   1952d ago
Last Guardian is somewhat of a trilogy to ICO and Shadow of the Colossus for the developers however many things may be different...

In my Opinions I think Last Guardian may be the sequel to ICO

Jack & Daxter should be there since IGN voted it as one of the most influential games of the PS2!!!
Defectiv3_Detectiv3  +   1952d ago
My list would read
Twisted Metal
Syphon Filter
The Getaway
Jet Moto
xangbar  +   1952d ago
ICO, Shadow of the colossus, and the last guardian are all in the same series. it just that people don't think of them that way becuz they don't share story, characters, or much of anything except the world they are in
Qazdaz  +   1952d ago
Jak and daxter should be top of that list.
Lifetrigger  +   1952d ago
What the ps3 needs to do is make
A new..
Twisted Metal
Dark Cloud
(One last)Dragonball Z (with EVERYONE)
Sly Cooper
Viewtiful Joe
Jak & Daxter
Kingdom Hearts

With these games Ps3 will keep me busy for the rest of my school year and summer next year! =D

Is this a forum post?!
And is the guy asking for remakes, new game in the series - some of which Sony doesn't own - or just backwards compatibility?

i want that The Getaway 3 Sony promised but stopped production for a while and get some well known british actors for the game like Jason Statham ( i think he's british ) and Daniel Creg you know what Sony reveal The Getaway 3 is back in production at Gamescon
xangbar  +   1952d ago
Bad list
Like many of you have already said, ICO and Shadow of the Colossus are in the same series to the loosest sense with The Last Guardian being the end to the trilogy. So, the list already is bad right there. Also, Sly Cooper is most likely going to show up on PS3. There was a rumor that Sly 4 is being developed and will have a PSP/PS3 launch.
darken  +   1952d ago
Yeah... you talk so highly of ICO and SOtC yet you don't know of TLG.

The Elemental  +   1952d ago
jak 4 FTW
if any franchise needs a reboot its jak
Deathmammoth  +   1952d ago
Downhill Domination
Twisted Metal
Star Wars Battle Front
Syphon Filter

There are just toooo many to list.

Ok list
I'm looking for:
Def Jam Fight for NY
Twisted Metal
topdawg122  +   1952d ago
Kingdome Hearts, like another dude said Shinobi(which was pretty challenging), twisted metal, and onimusha
Bathyj  +   1952d ago
Tenchu ! I still think the 360 version is the best of the series, controlwise but I could literally write 10 pages of ideas that would make this game AAA instead of just a niche for fans of the series.

And yes, all the other games everyone already mentioned but since no one else brought them up, how about

Destruction Derby with caravans for extra carnage
Colony Wars
Anyone ever play Futurecop LAPD by EA?
Warzone2100 my favourite RTS, its simple for console players like me.

Too name a few.
-Mezzo-  +   1952d ago
One Word Twisted metal.
RockmanII7  +   1952d ago
... thats two words.
JonnyBigBoss  +   1952d ago
Shadow of the Colossus? Yes please.
