Merry early Christmas, everyone! Today, Konami has announced that the PlayStation One RPG, Suikoden, is available on the PlayStation Network for hte price of $5.99.
I realize I mistyped "the" in the description. Can't go back and fix it now, though.
It's not as awesome as Suikoden II, but I know what I'm going to be playing this weekend.
Suikoden 2 has to be released.
All we need is LOK: Soul Reaver and ill officially sign my life over to Sony S.O.N.Y: Sony Owns Next Year
LittleBigPlanet? Just joking......this is great.
Seriously. I still have my PSone disc for this game. I want them to release Suikoden 2, I never got to play that one.
This is massive news. While yes, I'd love for Suikoden 2 to be released on PSN, I'm mostly looking forward to it because it'll drastically lower the price of the discs on eBay. Gotta have me the whole set, and I'm only missing 2 and the Japan-only releases (Gaiden Vol. 1 & 2, Card Stories).
this is awesome news. PSN is bringing it.. Finally!
I sold my PS1 disc like 6 months back for 40 bucks on Ebay. Now I can buy it back for 5.99. But we all know it's game over when Square allows Sony to release FFVII. Honestly, I'd like FFIII (the U.S. FFIII) to be released on PSN. That one was probably my all time fav.
I want Tenchu 1 and Tomb Raider 2. I don't care about playing them on the PS3, I want to have them on the PSP, but both is awesome. Tenchu 1 got me back into gaming.
i spent 20 dollars for a preused copy....smacks head, damn you GS/EB... FYI i have suikoden 2 on ps1
INSANE!! I still even have the soundtrack for this game. Gremio, Victor, & Flik.... Awww yeah!
Nice, keep these classics coming !
Peter I agree I love the LOK series immensely. And yes to the others release Suikoden 2 please too. My PSP is going to love me again now with this one tho. @ Lifendz All gloating aside I have FF3 for my Snes still :) among others. :D
Awesome news! I'll get it once I finish Persona 4 on my second run.
Please let there be a Suikoden 2 release. Suikoden 2, is one of the best RPGs ever, in my opinion, it also has the greatest story to an RPG. The later sequels failed to carry the awesomeness of the first two entries in the series.
damn JRPG. F!CK TURN BASED COMBAT, IT'S FOR SCALLIWAGS!
Gonna buy this just for easy access not worrying about putting in disk. Since i own 1 & 2 on disk still. Besides i wanna show konami that we want these old games so they release more and hopefully other companies follow suit
Hell yeah! keep em comin! Awesome RPG! and Awesome price!
Seeing that I've never had the pleasure of playing these games. I can have my chance. for 5.99 and not the ridiculous price of the disc on ebay
Full of win. :)
They weren't kidding when they said they are bring ps1 support back to the ps3! I own this game and i am going to download this digital copy too. Wow Sony is beefing up to take 09 back!
Sony is finally getting the picture.......but is anyone else dying to play GT1 and GT2 as much as me? I would pay anything for these two games to be on PSN (I lost the CDs of both games years ago) I've also been on a quest to find Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 lol
*fingers crossed* Bloom Omen? Soul Reaver? Einhander and Xenogears in the USA (Japan got them!)
That one of my favorite RPG's of all time. They need to bring that over ASAP!!!!
Yeah, I'd love for Einhander to be released on the PSN. I still have the Einhander demo that came on a SquareSoft Collectors CD with a bunch of other Square demos on it. I've always wanted to buy the full game, but didn't feel like shelling out like $40 or more bucks for it used. Sony has to bring Legend of the Dragoon to the PSN as well. They published that game, so I don't see why not.
They should have released Suikoden II. That's the one that everyone cares about.
There wouldn't be a Suikoden II without the original. If people buy this game, Suikoden II will come. Simple. Besides, better off having the save file for this one so you can use it on the sequel, no? Think.
here let me tell you my thoughts if you will understand better this way... arah chingga chang chong A chin pow ki... ping pong pingh KIwahh! konijiwa b!tches!!
Please!!! Are these signs to come for 2009 on PSN?. DO NOT underestimate the power if these PSX classics, it blows away the original Xbox library BY FAR... and that's just the PSX library, throw in the PS2 library and might as well kiss the WhackBox360 goodbye.
GONA GO GET THIS NOW YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSS
MAYBE they are trying to introduce people to the suikoden franchise so that when they release suikoden 6 people will know what it is.
I loved 1 far more, it is the orginal son!
I love how people approve stuff even with spelling errors. Anyways never heard of this game.
First Castlevania Chronicles and now Suikoden? Total loads of awesome. I actually JUST picked up Suikoden 5 at a Movie Gallery game sale last night for $4, and now I'll get the original for $6. Now all we need is some FF7 and 8, and a dash of Xenogears, and it'll definitely make my christmas without breaking my bank....and yes, if FF7 is released on PSN, I could completely picture PSN crashing from all the simultaneous bandwith...not to mention the mega bank they'd be pulling in, considering digital distribution of games is almost pure profit. Then again, I could also picture it costing $20...but people would still pay it...I probably would...maybe...yeah, I would.
no all psx games will most likely be 9.99 maybe they made suikoden 1 5.99 cause they will release suikoden 2 for 9.99 and damn is it worth it. suikoden 2 is going for almost 200 bucks on ebay
Wait, what? There are less than three games on PSN that are $9.99
ya not a lot of people heard about suikoden 2 since it came out during the time ff7 came out it never got the attention it deserved
old school 2D RPG is what real RPG fans wanna play. This and old first person RPGs like 'Wizardry' and 'Might & Magic'. Bring the magic to PSN.
Oh glorious day!
what a fine day it is today
damn I'm gonna have to get a new HDD soon. my 60gb cant hold all this goodness.
pricewatch.com is your friend.
Remember the large scale battles and the castle defense battles? Yeah, those great.
This is nice but I wish Konami would bring out Suikoden 1 & 2 for the PSP out in the US. But seeing as that game most likely will not come out in the US I guess I will have to buy this just off of PSN instead of buying it for the PSP.
You can just transfer it to a memory stick duo and you will have it on your psp.
I had no idea you could put PSN games on your PSP like that. Is it for every PSN title, or just PSOne ones?
just ps1 games, but you can remote play a few psn games. i even found you could remote play the lego batman demo. anyone with the game know if you actually play the full game? (btw, major coolness having daniel plainview as your avatar. "BASTARD FROM A BASKET!"
this game has a story the likes of which we haven't seen in quite some time. So worth the price.
I wish they would put FF7 up on psn
If they REALLY want to screw over the eBay guys, they'll release Suikoden II!
this is crap! wheres my suikoden HD FTW
its a rpg hmmm i may have to look into this since legend of dragoon my first rpg i've somehow become interested in all rpgs so when i turn 18 feburary i will start my own account on my ps3 and look into this as well as any other titles for first purchase
i wonder if the money trick still works ;D
