10 PlayStation Classics Criminally Absent From PSN

CFD!'s Rob Rich rounds up 10 titles that he believes Sony has dropped the ball on not yet bringing to PSN:

"With the recent addition of import games to the PlayStation Network, PS3 (and by extension PSP) owners have even more classic games to look forward to. There are a lot of original PlayStation games out there that just never made is stateside, despite being awesome. However, the promise of this new service throws into light one major problem with Sony’s PlayStation Classics: there are a ton of games missing from PSN’s library. Many of which were released in the US on a disk years ago, and many still that have already been released on either the Japanese PSN, the European PSN or both.

"With this grave injustice in mind, we present CFD!’s 10 PlayStation Classics Criminally Absent From PSN. Bear in mind, this is not a “Top Ten” list, as these games aren’t being ranked in any way."

I really hope that rumor about Parasite Eve is true.

SynGamer2968d ago

Ditto. Great games (series). Still kicking myself for trading 1 and 2 way back in the day when I was naive...

This may be odd but one of my favorite PS1(also on PC) games was Bugs Bunny: Lost in Time. I remember that there was a hub for each time period and you unlocked the ability to go into individual levels. Very much like Mario 64, but more Looney. Plus there was full voice overs. It was like living in the cartoons. A real treasure.

Also want to see:
Spider(classic game, like deadly creatures wii)
Xenogears(Never played)
FF Chronicles(for Chrono Trigger)

FF Chronicles is $11.39 and Final Fantasy Anthology is $11.23 on Amazon; both are brand new. Add a third game to take you over the $25 mark and you'll get free shipping.

colony wars needs a reboot, happy memories of playing that back in the day.

PS360fanboy2968d ago

This one's a great list...

Front Mission 3 was one of my favorite titles on the PS1. It's so sad what they turned the series into...
Vagrant Story was the Demon's Souls of its day. Great game.
I never played Xenogears (never got released in EUrope...) but I heard it's one of the finest RPGs of all time.

ShadowPraxis2968d ago

My personal picks? Even though I don't know how well they'd hold up, I want to see Bushido Blade 1 & 2 brought over.

For that matter, they need a remake too, imho...

Ndigity2968d ago

Is Vib-Ribbon on there yet?

thisdustin2968d ago

If they finally round out the PS1 library, then announce a PS4 that's not backward-compatible with this stuff, I'm gonna be pissed.

ShadowPraxis2968d ago

How else are they going to sell them to you yet again? ;) They're finally learning from Nintendo, it seems.

Gambit072968d ago

I'm not sure if I got you, but any PS3 CAN play PS1 games.

elpresador2968d ago

....Im sorry but i get systems to play the games MADE for that system. Ive no use in getting an expensive ass machine to play 15 year old games on it.

RobsteinOne2968d ago

It's more about being able to play the 15 year old games in the first place, since a lot of us don't have the older systems anymore.

jukins2968d ago

only game out of that ten that i'd def buy is bust a groove

ThatArtGuy2968d ago

I still own mine. I even have the ultra rare BaG2.

HxCGamer2967d ago

but i have the second one too. I got the Japanese version though

easily one of my favorite games back in the day
