Sony talks about a possible 'Games on Demand' type feature and backwards compatibility as to how Sony will treat PS2 titles for new Sony adopters.
i want another Siren game on PSN! loved Blood Curse
That was an excellent game. I hope we see another this yr.
indeed.. i love downloadable games like Siren or wipEout hd or ratchet and clank quest for booty.. i do hope Sony announces more games like these at E3 this year.. i have so many PSN games but i do have to say wipEout is probably my most favorite PSN game so far.. its hard choosing because there are so many great games but wipEout just screams bang for your buck
I'd be interesting to see how they deal with this. I dont think it's practical to provide games over 20gb via PSN. But having games like WP hd, Burnout, Warhawk availiable form PSTore is just plain awesome. I do hope we continue with similar services
I played the old ps2 version of siren, havent tried the psn version yet.. selling them in chapters is something sony should do more of..
Well its good to see Sony realize that DD will be the media of choice within the next year or two. gamers will win once M$ and Sony start competing in the DD arena. There's so much cost you can cut with DD and still be able to profit it will make for good times.
He says "We don’t have any news to share on that front at the moment, but keep in mind that digital distribution isn’t the only way to bring classic PlayStation 2games over to PS3. God of War Collection is a great example of how technology like Blu-ray can be used to not only reintroduce PlayStation 2classics, but improve on them at the same time by adding new features like PSN Trophies, higher resolution textures, and increased frame rates – all on a single Blu-ray disc." Sure we can get it on a new Blu-Ray disc - But we have to pay $60 for it. It's unfair Sony! If we have the old PS2 disc, then we should be able to swap it in for a Blu-Ray disc.
not sure if you're aware but the God Of War Collection had both PS2 games remastered in HD with trophy support at 60 fps with a demo of GOW3 and was sold for $40 not $60.. i doubt Sony will be that stupid and charge 60 bucks for PS2 games on Blu-Ray
Grand Theft Auto Collection - GTA III, Vice City and San Andreas on one disc in HD and with trophies. That would be my GOTY!
that sounds awesome but also like something rockstar would have to do, sony could only help or bring the idea to them
I'm sure Sony would be happy to fund the development costs as long as it was PS3 exclusive.
I think Sony is gonna start bringing PS2 games to the PS3. Unlike MS, Sony has a large catalog of games from the PS1 and PS2 era. They need to take advantage of it.
Sony talks and everyone falls asleep Sony talks and no one pays attention Seriously who cares what Sony has to say have they ever said anything worth reading about hell NO!
I think saying no downloadable PS2 titles is pretty big and that there won't be any PS3 type of Games on Demand feature is big.
I'm guessing you were born after the PS2 era then. By the way, nobody listens to you either. At least Sony is, at worst, a "has been", who are you though?
Says the most ignored guy here in N4G.
YEAH THE SAME THING MS AND AARON MIIBURG TALKS SO MUCH BRAGGING. THEY MAKE EVERYONE WORST SLEEPS! SO SHUT THE HECK UP, YOU IMMATURE 10 YEARS OLD.
Some of his responses were painful to read. Too much PR-speak for me. Needs moar Tretton.
lol i agree
buy your PS2 games again. Glad I have a 60GB
you can actually download an emulator for the ps1 and ps2 and just download the games. they may take time to DL. but you get the game for free. I'm currently doing that on my PC. i have nes,snes,ps1,turbographix16,ne ogeo and other systems with the games running on my PC. no need to rebuy the games.
And I can play 99% of supposed 360 "exclusives" on my PC as well. So I don't actually need my 360...but I actually NEED my PS3 to play it's exclusives and all the additional features I get with it.
If they can put FF X on blu ray and add trophies for it, then I'll definitely buy it without any question ask.
There are plenty of PS2 titles I'd be willing to open my wallet for if they get updated visuals and trophy support.
Typical PR response. Why cant Sony just give us some info on PS2 emulation on current PS3 sku's? surely they are either a:)release a firmware app to allow us to play our discs or b:) re-release titles via psn store). Also what about PSN premium news? When can we expect it? Im a UK PS3 owner since launch (60gb died, now on a slim) and im still waiting for XGC ( 3years come march 2010) why is everything so slow with sony these days. Cut us some slack and give us fans some info, dont keep everything tight to your chests Sony!!!
Because in the UK you fall under SCEE, and SCEE is by far the biggest of all the SCE Divisions. Over 100 countries. SCEE has to cater for Europe, Middle East, Western Asia and Australasia. That is alot of different regions, different cultures and more importantly alot of laws to get through before anything can be announced and/or released. Perosnally, if SCEE catered just for Europe, or preferably the EU regions, then things would progress much quicker.
i want to be able to download Resident Evil 4
i just want MGS1 on the European store, SCEE are really annoying when it comes to just providing equal content if it has been released already....my bad, its still taken to long
Sony playing ketchup again?
Valve did it First, 70% of Digital Distribution market share is Steam's, Gabe King of Kings
That interview didn't tell me ANYTHING. I literally did not learn anything from those "responses." They even asked him the same question several times, with different wording, and he just said the same crap, i.e nothing. That was a waste. I was actually hoping to read some good news in there.
If the 2nd half of 2010 can have as many amazing games being released as the first half of the year does, both in disc based games and PSN/XBLA games then 2010 is going to be the most epic gaming year ever. It's already begin with Darksiders and Bayonetta. So much more to come!
just let me play my already bought PS2 games on my ps3 you rich ba$tards!
If true I will be stalking Konami to release Suikoden 3 in Europe. They never did now they can get a chance.
Well until Sony decides about PS2 titles on the PS3 I'll just leave my PS2 hooked up they should be looking more into the DD market its strong on both the 360 and the Wii. If Sony had more old arcade titles from say Sega I would be all over those and they should listen to the fans about PS1 titles some PS1 titles i just don't care for. But maybe the premium package that Sony has been talking about will fix all the these problems and offer some sort of fix for PS2 games.
Sounds interesting I hope they add Kingdom Hearts to PSN.
Follow the leader, Sony.
on the Ico-SOTC Collection damn it!
