PS3 Plans For Backwards Compatibility - Revealed

Since the launch of the Playstation 3 Sony has always said they were committed to their Playstation fans, and wanted to make the PS2 to Playstation 3 transition as easy as possible. In the early days backwards compatibility was a part of the plan. (PS2, PS3)

I'll admit the game can get pretty cheesy, but the story and concept is just so good its hard to stop playing it. And in my opinion the game play is perfect with the exception of the camera.

I would die a happy man when KH 3 comes out. Please no more handhald games. AI am also very very excited if there actually is a FF remake coming.

OMG, I'm more excited for the fact that they just said that Squeenix is working on HD remastered titles. Though I think only FFX on PS2 was actually good.
NickIni  +   1479d ago
Indeed this does sound awesome :)

Maybe what they could do is implement the download at 9.99 or whatever like they said, but if the customer could prove they owned an original PS2 copy they got a free/cheaper download? Would keep a lot of people happy, me included.

'...When fans see what Konami’s doing to the Metal Gear series, and what Square’s doing with Final Fantasy, they’re going to be very happy.'

Oh my GAAAAAWWWWWDDDDDD!!!!! YESSSS!!!

What many people don't realise is the potential of western gamers finally getting their hands on FF12 International Zodiac - the immensely improved version that was never localized!

I love the art style used in FF12 and i'll pay obscene money to play it in HD with the new Zodiac license boards.
Swiftfox  +   1479d ago
@ravage27
I'm afraid we will have to be more realistic. It is SquareEnix being talked about. I wouldn't be to far out of line to expect to see a simple HD bundle of Final Fantasy X and X-2 and that's it. I believe Final Fantasy X had an international version as well with more conent which we probably won't be seeing.

I also wouldn't be suprised if they sold each of the Final Fantasy X games HD at $40 per rather than bundled at $40.

I would also love to see Kingdom Hearts bundle that includes the Final Mix versions of both 1 and 2, but again this is SquareEnix we are talking about.
Megaton  +   1480d ago
That's actually a huge bomb they dropped, and it wasn't even touched on in the title or anything.

I guess it'll be the next 5 dupes of this interview to focus on that.

Makidian  +   1480d ago
There is no guarantee that they will ever remake PSOne games in this manner because they would take more work. Any PS2 game that spans multiple titles is fair game though, so if SE is doing Final Fantasy it will be FFX/X-2/XII. If they are doing Final Fantasy then it's logical to assume they will do Kingdom Hearts as well and hopefully it will be the Final Mix versions.
Coffin87  +   1480d ago
oh god yes!!
I currelty play FFVII Ultima Edition on my EEE Netbook, so amazing. To see all that amazingly adorably awesome pre-rendered backgrounds in FULL FREAKING 1080p HD ... wow!!!
But I think is would be too good to be true, they would have to re-render all that stuff. Furthermore, it's a PS1 game .. they were talking about PS2 games.
My guess would be FFX+FFXII.

On a side note, they are SO MANY forgotten gems ... hundreds and hundreds of hours of amazing gameplay experiences from the past. It's a shame that so many are forgotten .. old "low budged" movies are being re-shown on crappy TV stations over and over, but old games.. so hard to get your hands on some of them.

I don't know how the concept of remastering a PS1 title loses so many people. Is it that difficult to understand? You up the resolution, textures, framerate, etc... just like they do with the PS2 games.

Do people really think it's impossible to remaster a PS1 game or something? Just look at Bionic Commando: Rearmed. Compared it to the NES version and there's your answer.

however, I WILL be the devils advocate for just a moment (spare me) to say:

this is quite the cash in =| not horrible, if anything I'm excited about remakes - more value, good way of getting better experience, more services, etc.

but consider this: when they cancelled the B/C, you can see clearly it wasn't JUST because it cost too much, but because they realized they could make money off its absence.

not that its a bad thing mind you, its just the fact =)

still, great news!
BillOreilly  +   1479d ago
well the remastered games are GREAT but a hundred dollar(guess) add on box that plays ps2 games (like the one they patented or whatever) is a fu**** rip off. I can get a ps2 to do the same thing for 20 bucks. Unless it upscales no buy. Just another way to sell a smaller ps2 that hooks up to your ps3.
It wont be done with firmware but with hardware$$$$$$

You are missing the fact that you clearly hate PS3. I mean what is there to lose from HD graphics, trophy support and extra features. All for the same price as the ps2 games go for second hand nowadays anyways.
More excited about FF than anything probably gonna put FFX and FFX-2 on 1 Blu-Ray that's my guess the FFX collection.

@rob If SE didn't package the three of them together it would buck the trend and defeat the purpose of the remaster so they will most definitely do it as the sales would be insane for those three games packaged together. Those three games alone could end up the highest selling of any remaster's that get released.

MGS2 was for the PS2.
SoapShoes  +   1480d ago
MGS2 was not on PS1 and to make a PS1 game look even decent it will take a complete overhaul... A PS1 game in HD would still look very poor so I doubt they'll be doing that, especially since PS3s play PS1 games anyway.

Ok, "MGS2 Sons of Liberty" in the U.S. was on the PS2.

The real "Metal Gear 2 Solid Snake" came out for the MSX2 and is considered "one of the best 8 bit games ever made" then was released in the U.S. as part of Metal Gear Solid 3 Susistence.

Good chance all these games see a remaster? IDK. I would like the MGS remasters to be the "SUB" editions though.

Yeah the problem is we all have huge LCD TV's now.

Playing ICO the jaggies nearly cut my eyes. I dont remember them being so bad before and I'm pretty sure if I hooked up to one of those old fishbowl tube TV's (god where would I even find one, museum perhaps) that it wouldnt be.

Plus very few game were in Widescreen, so its either stretch it or play with the bars on the side.

Screw that, HD remastering is the way to go.

funkycoldmedina  +   1480d ago
Dlacy13g, I'm in agreement with you. I think it's a bait and switch move by Sony. I have the fat 60GB model and it's the best in terms of overall features as originally advertised. I understand cutting cost at hardware level, but how is it not possible to provide software emulation even if not 100% for those whom have collected a library of PS2 games that no longer have a PS2 console or it has worn out (DRE, etc.).

“One of the ideas that almost made it to market, but is still in play, was to gradually place every PlayStation 2 game on the PSN for download, pricing most games at or around 9.99. This would be done much like what’s happing with the PS1 classics right now on the PSN. “

I'm not against HD remakes with trophy support, but that statement above just proved the point that it's possible for backwards compatibility through software. If I'm reading it correctly it has nothing to do with HD remakes. The HD remakes mentioned pertains to only several selected games or series.
visualb  +   1480d ago
I agree somewhat
but consider they LOST money because of B/C - it was unviable, and its cancellation inevitable.

they just twisted it around to make some cash out of it, sucks somewhat (I have MGS2, MGS3 havent even finished that) and i'll get the urge to rebuy the remakes. but

a) its great value (usually 2, sometimes 3 games in one disk for 40 bucks = not bad)

b) its better quality (PS2 games on HD tv's = horrible =|)

c) you get extra content / trophy support/ etc.

so its a bit of a trade off, sure it costs, but hey, it could have been way worst IMHO(make shitty ports at 60 each for example)
AKS  +   1480d ago
I have a launch 60 GB that has full BC, but I'd much rather play a game like Shadow of the Colossus in HD remastered form, especially on my TV. I don't "have" to buy any of my old games; I'll buy the games I want to play through again. The Team ICO games look incredible, and I'd definitely be on board for MGS3, FF VII, FF XII, or DQ VIII in HD.
lightningsax  +   1480d ago
Diacy, I understand where you're going with that (despite your obvious icon being extremely obvious). I have a library of PS2 games that will not get either a PSN store or HD treatment, seeing how the PS1 games in the PSN US store are severely lacking (see my above comment on Einhander).

However, I also agree with Megatron - I put in SotC on a smaller HDTV, and it's really hard to even play it the way it looks.

The problem here is that less popular titles or just plain ignored for no reason titles will be ignored again. Maybe, just maybe, we'll see Persona 3 FES and Persona 4. ZOE 1 and 2? I wouldn't plan on it. The Devil Summoner series? Haha, no. Okami, Viewtiful Joe, and God Hand? The company's dissolved; Capcom has the rights to them, but they're not going to do anything with them.

Anyway, the PS2 has such an extensive library that I could go on forever. You get my point. If it won't sell in bulk, it's not going to be remastered or downloadable, and not being able to play these titles will make me a sad panda.
Dlacy13g  +   1479d ago

Software would be nice but to be honest getting the best PS2 games in HD with other goodies I'm happy with. There are some old games like Warship Gunner and PTOVI that I love to play and are very nitch games same with Front Mission 4 that I'm sure we will never see, but at the end of the day I still have my PS2 to play those on.

Hope we get GTA HD Collection, that would be huge.

This is why Sony is such a great company
They take their time and think things through for long term success. They don't simply react to flash-in-the-pan market demands, especially if it's not profitable for them.

The Remastered PS2 games are a brilliant idea. There are really only a handful of PS2 games that current gamers would want to play again anyways. Add in HD, trophy support, affordability for gamers, profit for developers, and the fact that it's an actual PS3, everybody wins.

remastering sounds best then,to play all ps2 games would be cool,but to play some of the better ones in hd with 60fps etc is even better

That's fantastic news. I would definitely pick up a MGS collection, and the Ico collection.

why do people always talk about 'creaming' themselves when they hear good news? I prefer to smile

To little too late......
If sony only thought about the consumers when they first brought out the ps3...they would not be third in North America.

Sony does think about the consumer, which is why they have a variety of games to cater to all types of gamers.

Holy Shit Man
Final Fantasy 6 - 12? On 1 Blu-Ray? Shiiiiiit I'd have to cop that homie. Aint no way I could pass that up.

Almost the whole Final Fantasy COLLECTION on 1 disc! HOT DAMN!

I'll take any traditional Final Fantasy in HD with trophy support. I hope they remake every game. They can sell them on multiple discs and I'll still buy everyone. But im not so sure this is true. I hav high hopes.
