Sony Computer Entertainment America has announced updates to its PlayStation Store, including the debut of PS3 playable downloadable PS1 titles like Tekken 2 and WipeOut, and the original downloadable game Super Rub a Dub.
that the existing downloadable PSOne games would have to be re-released; I was under the impression that the last PS3 firmware update completely took care of cross-platform compatibility.
But what a great feature nonetheless.
Uh-oh...this announcement is giving me that "download-me-now" itch again.
But I believe if you've already bought it you can just re-DL it without paying. I think the issue is in the control scheme due to PSP's lack of a second analogue stick.
awesome. i really hope they start adding more ps1 games to the psn store now. cuz before i didnt feel that much of a need to play on my psp. but now i can play crash on my ps3 and if I go away I can play it on my psp. sweet deal
This is awsome PSN is coming along nicely now!
I cant wait to play Gauntlet II
also i will probally download some old PS1 games for PSP and PS3 now that i can play on both.
when does the EU get all the good stuff ! we still don't have ninja gaiden demo and now this :( that sucks
well you do get Home beta before we do.
i thought the home-beta trial already started in the US?
make an American account? It can't be anywhere near as hard as when I made my Japanese account.
Making a different account will enable you to get the downloadable content that is exclusive to that area. I have the Hot Shots Golf 5 demo and the Devil May Cry 4 trailer on my PS3, and I live in the U.S.
super rub-a-dub should be a lot of fun!
anyone think PS1 .ISO's will work on PS3?
Syphon Filter, and Tekken 2 ill get that two (:
thats good news for psn
Can't wait to play syphon filter again! Think i'll give Supa Ruba Dub a try also!
I'm on it. Bout' time!
I hope this trend continues for the PS Store. Older games should be added every week and in large amounts. Also, I hope they move on to downloadable PS2 games as soon as possible.
Now THAT would be an accomplishment!!!
I'm afraid that that may take the PSP out of the equation (whether the little guy is powerful enough)...and I imagine that the games would be very, very large (PS2=DVD).
But we can dare to dream, right?
I know its a long shot, but its not too hard to imagine when I play games like Tekken: Dark Resurrection. I realize this was a PSP game, but so is GTA: Liberty City and Vice City Stories, and both of those games were pretty close to the original, and both were PS2 games.
If anyone can figure it a way to make stuff happen, it's Sony. I mean for God's sake, have you seen Eye of Judgment? That's insane!!!
The early PS2 games but some of them would be WAY too big for DL a few would be nice though.
Yeah, this is a definite plus for me since I am still quite in love with my PS 2 and would enjoy being able to play my "old" games (although I just bought Metal Gear Solid 2, and God of War II). Still, I doubt very seriously that once I have access to new PS games I will want to play old games. $600 bucks will do that to ya!
I picked up God of war 2 the other day, a good game is a good game.
"a good game is a good game"
Man, ain't that ever the truth, brother...I've got no less than six grade "A" current-gen titles sitting atop my television (all of which I dearly enjoy), and I've been feverishly hooked on the $5.99, thirteen-year-old, jaggy-ridden, Mortal Kombat II as of late.
(Guilty pleasures are great, aren't they?)
PlayStation card coming out? I hate using my credit card (if I could use it anyway; my country doesn't even appear on the system yet so I can't even use my credit card)
