Square-Enix PlayStation 2 Classics Coming to the PlayStation Network

Ben from Square-Enix:

With technology and gaming evolving at an ever increasing rate, it's nice to sit back and take the time to enjoy the classics. With that in mind we're continuing our mission to bring some of the Square Enix (and Eidos Interactive) classics to the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live. The process is not easy and can sometimes take an extremely long time, but we're getting there and it's totally worth it. We hope this gives you the opportunity to rekindle your youth, and for the youngsters amonst you, a chance to see where it all began. (Conflict Desert Storm 2, Conflict: Vietnam, Deus Ex, Just Cause, PS2, PS3)

SuMtOnE  +   994d ago
hopefully not. wish they would remake it HD for KH =)
cpayne93  +   994d ago
Never played KH so I would love an hd collection.
Army_of_Darkness  +   994d ago
All SE games I don't care for.....
Dammit! I was expecting a bunch of RPG's!!! RPG's!!
Gamer1982  +   994d ago
You noticed these are not the huge hits which had multiple sequels on ps2? That's because they will be released on PS3 in HD. We already know about FFX and FFx-2 HD coming to PS3 no doubt KH is in the works too.

All I'm looking for is "The Warriors". R* is slipping on this one IMO, the game was ridiculously fun and worth a 2nd, 3rd or 4th play thru....

"Coffeeeeeee" -RS

FFXII, And make it HD please.
ecstaticpunk  +   994d ago
I was expecting FFXII never got round to playing it last gen a HD remaster would be awesome.
zeddy  +   994d ago
ff12 was the start of the end. complicated story, lack of interest in characters, side quests required a lot of work(finding items etc.) and boss fights could last ages.
George Sears  +   994d ago
I can sadly say, it was the only FF I've started and never got to finish. Horrible story, dull and uninteresting characters, bland and simplistic combat system; it was a failure in almost every front.

As an RPG, you can label it as mediocre, but as an FF, it was a failure.
Mohawk-V85  +   994d ago
I disagree. Loads of boss fights, items and side quest. That is what I look for in RPGs. Im surprised that is a negative. Come on! Balthier!? coolest character. Zeddy, I honestly think you were not interested in RPGs when u started FF12. It is exactly like ur saying loads of variety, and that is a bad thing.

For George, really? horrible story? To me the worst thus far is FF13X2. Can someone shut Serah's mouth. The only words that come out of her mouth are lightning and snow. Really boring battle system, U dont really need to select ur move. Just keep on switching paradigm. Boss gonna land a strong attack? Sentinel. Boss having ridiculously strong armor? Saboteur. Auto battle does the rest. Stagger them then spam!

FF12 combat system was awesome. You clearly didn't get deep enough inside it to realize how great it was. To make it short and sweer, the goodness in that system was that you could make anyone be whatever you wanted. Something that's not possible in FF13 or 13-2, because even with Crystarium, they all have pre-defined preferred roles, and not using them as priority puts you in a disadvantage.

Also the story was great IMO. Not the best story out there but you guys are just hating on it, which seems to be quite popular especially after the true downfall of FF which was FF13, because most people suddenly love to hate anything affiliated with SE.
Skateboard  +   994d ago
No.
tommygunzII  +   993d ago
I couldn't agree more. FFXII was a step in the right direction. I have put more hours in FFXII than any other single player FF game. I love it.

But because it wasn't FFVII or FFX it pretty much failed and sent the FF series into an identity crisis. :(

And where is did Conflict: Global Terror?

No trophies no sale

@wolfy - i don't want my old games to be ruined by making them have "replay" value. I replay my old games because i love them, not because i want to get an accomplishment on the internet.
Dno  +   993d ago
trophies ruined your games???

"Facepalm"
Drazz  +   994d ago
U don't need trophies to tell you you're satisfied..
WitWolfy  +   994d ago
But it gives the game replay value, to see if you can complete the challenges the developers set out for you the gamer. I dont know why so many games always hate on others who would love this feature in their games?
Dno  +   993d ago
i Dont need any of you to tell me what I need to be satisfied.

No trophies no HD remake, no sale.

Facepalm that bitches
GraveLord  +   994d ago
and Xbox live? UGH.

Hopefully Sony secures exclusive releases on PSN.
cpayne93  +   994d ago
Why would that matter if the games were on both the ps2 and xbox?
CGI-Quality  +   994d ago
How many SE games were on both the PS2 and Xbox though? It would make sense for last gen games to be PSN exclusive.

OT: I have to wonder what titles they're talking about.
phantomexe  +   994d ago
id like to see ffxi. i'd play it again
WitWolfy  +   994d ago
FFXI is an MMO sold in bargain bins almost at every gaming store, sure you can prob pick one up for $6 by now.
Its only Eidos old games
Surfaced  +   994d ago
Yeah bit of a false alarm here.
TheModernKamikaze  +   994d ago
Dirge of Cerberus!
FinaLXiii  +   994d ago
The original Deus Ex would be nice.
Godmars290  +   994d ago
Read the article:
Deus Ex

Date: 16th May 2012

Price: €9.99 / £7.99
FinaLXiii  +   993d ago
sweet
user7792788  +   994d ago
Isn't that already on the PSN store?
Kran  +   994d ago
That explains when Deus Ex was rerated.
Dark Thorn  +   994d ago
I'd like to see them bring HD versions of the ps2 hitman games to the psn now that they own the publishing rights. They could tie it in with the release of absolution later in the year...

In fact they could have done the past games as a pre-order bonus or put it in the collectors edition to get a code to download them on the psn. That would make the collectors edition worth getting at least.
Slapshot82  +   994d ago
That's great, now give us what we really want: Einhänder and Brave Fencer Mushashi!
TacoTaru  +   994d ago
I'm confused. Am I supposed to be excited about these games?
Relientk77  +   994d ago
Where is Brave Fencer Musashi, put that PS1 classic on the PSN already
Lord_Sloth  +   994d ago
I want The Bouncer. I spent so many hours in that game! I absolutely loved it!
banjadude  +   994d ago
Duragan (one arm behind his back) FTW!
AdmiralSnake  +   994d ago
They put those over FF and KH ? Square is stupid.
Red_Eye  +   994d ago
Where is FFX!?!?
Greyfoxdbz  +   994d ago
It's getting a HD makeover so you will see it soon enough friend. I can't wait.
Red_Eye  +   993d ago
Sweet, can't wait either.
