A very simple answer to a commonly asked question, Sony has finally responded.
please for God's sake don't be douches squeenix, for once in your lives!!!
LOL. You could always make a US account and buy from the US PSN?
Well that explains Xenogears but it still doesn't explain , Why there is no Resident Evil 1-3, Why there is no Dino Crisis, why there is no Crash 2, why there is no spyro, why there is no Castlevania, why there is no FF tactics, why there is no silent hill, why there is no Bushido Blade 1-2. When i think of PS1 classics i think of those games not winnie the pooh and Little mermaid. @IronFist we cant pay with our debit cards,
... Sony doesn't care about European gamers. They've made that very clear over and over and over again.
@Eyeco Buy an American PSN card code online add it to your American PSN account and bam you can buy American games. @Above Why most of the time I would agree with you that's not the case here, There was never a PAL disc to being with which means there's no French German and so on translation of the game. There never was, thus they would either have to release the disc in English only or not at all, not to mention the game was never approved for the European market which is a problem in it's self.
@rush its "never a PAL disc to begin with" and "which is a problem in and of itself" know you know.. and knowing is half the battle, GI JOEEEEEEEE!!!!!
ahaha they are too busy bringing awesome psone classic nobody cares about to work and make xenogears available. The only problem is for them to bypass their rules as working copies of xenogears for psp & PS3 exist since 2 years ago ..
I thought it was pretty obvious why the game was not on the PAL PSN.... Xenogears is just like Chrono Cross: square never got the game published in Europe. That said, Maybe Sony should consider an import section on the EU PSN for English titles only released in the USA.
I was expecting the middle finger.. :)
euro psn users create an american psn account, go to play-asia.com and order one. Then buy it for your forever american psn account. http://www.play-asia.com/pa... I even linked you to the psn card section. (reasons why im doing this, because square enix did not give u.s. vagrant story which is on euro psn, and they didnt give u.s. saga frontier which is only on japanese psn When both games released regionally on black ps1 discs).
xenogears was never released in pal territory?
Nope. Us in PAL-land never got as much love from square as the US, nes-to-ps2-era. Good thing the ps3 is region free for the ps3 games, But it's a shame ps1 games are regionlocked since the emulator running it on the ps3 has no problems regarding different regions or outputs really. My wall with NTSC PS1 RPGs begs for the removal of the region lock. :C
No Chrono Cross either D=
There is no Resident Evil because Eidos published them in Europe. They would have to sort out all the legal stuff. I don't know why they won't. Enough people have asked for the RE games, me included. I would buy them all tomorrow if they would let me have them
They should releas a hd remake with trophies for E.U
I am more interested in a proper sequel.... Xenosaga from namco/monolith wasnt very good, it suffered the same flaws as FF13, namely running forward from start till ending of the game. Xenogears was a true masterpiece, great story, great gameplay, wonderful towns, great worldmap etch.
If you play xenogears in 480p,720p, or 1080p resolutions the sprites and everything else with ps1 smoothing turned on, makes everything smoother and clearer and its a very pretty emulation.
no pal disc? so that means it wont run or something? bullshit. just about every single ps1 game on the us store seems to be published by SCEA. that leads me to suppose that maybe scea sort out the rights so they can sell the game on the store, something scee clearly cant be bothered with, or just plain can't manage.
