Where are these classics? The XBLA and PSN stores would benefit form having these five games on their digital shelves. Jason Fanelli of Leviathyn.com talks about the revival of these games.
... I would much rather see a Power Stone 1/2 HD for example. Also, The SNES had a great game called The Firemen, which would make a sweet small game on XBLA/PSN. Also, as always, I have to mention a HD remake of Turrican, and Superfrog.
Yep, Powerstone 1&2, Hogs of War and Crash Bash would do me nicely. and Rollcage 1/2, not forgetting Rollcage.
TURRICAN!! Wow, you just brought back one of the best memories I've had in gaming.
... brilliant soundtrack :) IF they ever port that game, I do hope they'll port the C64/Amiga version, and not the versions that were released on the consoles, which were less impressive.
Brave Fencer Musashi and from this list: Mega Man Legends
I would buy Brave Fencer Musashi right now! That game was awesome.
I was playing it yesterday. It's so amazing :)
That was a pretty awful list. If there was any game from Capcom that needed to come to xbl/psn that would be Power Stone or the sequel to Rival Schools. Tekken 3? Really? No...just no. Then and only then can there be peace.
Decent list, I've been waiting for Tekken 3 to hit PSN. I'd add Nights: into dreams, Shen Mue 1&2 and Black and White.
Deus Ex is a PC exclusive and will never be on consoles. If you want to play it you can buy it for 10$.
How could a journalist be so ignorant as to think that any of the games in his list could ever be on Xbox live. Those games were PS One and PS 2 classics. They wont emulate the game again on Xbox live if it's a PS1/PS2 game. they would have to re-release the entire game all over again on Live, which might cause them to run into legal issues with talents used to make the game; and would probably end up having to either redo the voice acting and music (so they can try not to pay the former talents), or just remake it as an HD version (which will still need new voice acting and music to avoid legal issues). Plus, most of the games mentioned were so old that they'd never get an HD rendition (Example: Your likely to never, ever, see an HD rendition of a PS One game--Blocky graphics in HD will only make it look like a mockery of an update).
