Since their are very few quality JRPG's this gen, i decided to go back to the past and play some quality retro JRPG games. Suikoden 2 is one of them.
If you want to play Suikoden 2 on consoles, you need to fork out $50-$100 as this game is rare and Konami refusing to put it on PSN doesn't help much either.
Its also the highest rated game on metacritic by user score (which is only counted if it has >4 reviews).
IGN rated the game extremely highly giving it a 9/10 with a very low rating for the graphics, it would get a much better rating if it had good graphic instead of 2D.
I really wanted to play this game. So i bought it and will play it next week. But i only decided to buy it after realising i have no choice since games not on PSN, and their wasn't any indication that it would be any time in the future. I couldn't wait.
Suikoden 1 is on PSN, but the best one isn't. What is Konami thinking, what do you think might be the reason for not putting it on PSN?
I am thinking its because their is:
1. copyright/rights/licensing issue.
2. Suikoden 1 made insignificant amounts of money on PSN.
3. or Konami is just plain stupid?
What reason could their be?
