Comment posted Eight “Classic” games the PSN didn’t need by The Board.

They missed their chance really when the PS3 was in it’s infancy with very few games. People would’ve snapped up the old games. Too many new ones now to care.

The Board also commented

  • I’d much prefer them to focus on new games (new sequels to PS1 classics is fine) rather than re-releasing PS1 games.

  1. I’d much prefer them to focus on new games (new sequels to PS1 classics is fine) rather than re-releasing PS1 games.

  2. If they do re-release PSone games, they should at least touch up the games. Maybe improve the graphics a little and make they gameplay slightly less atrocious.

    Then again, are WipEout and Warhawk even necessary when we have WipEout HD and the PS3 remake of Warhawk?

    Well I’m guessing it costs them next to nothing and releasing these games must mean that some people are buying them… maybe. But during a time packed with high profile PS3 game releases, I don’t think anyone will be looking forward to having a classic release on the PSN. Better to hold off on such titles when there’s not much on the PS3 side of things.

  5. i would love if they hurry up bringing spyro to the eu store. Also a bit of rayman 2 would be awesome. They do give us a lot of crap ps1 games i’ve never heard of before. Gd game driver 😉

  6. Hey, 2Xtreme and Bomberman Party Edition were awesome. I loved going to my friends’ house and playing them.

  7. I agree that most PSOne games in the PSN are just plain junk. Instead, they should release less, better games.

    PsOne games are ok… They should release the very good ones XD
    Also I love totally love it, if they remade the Metal Gear Solid. I’d probably kill myself for that.

  9. I would love to see Road Rash, I don’t remember if that was on ps1, but I played the hell out of it on Sega, the CD version kicked ass!

  10. lol @ ford, that game is trash!

    but bomberman party was awesome back in the days :\

    that one should indeed stay…..

  11. As you are probably too young to appreciate it, at the time One was about the best game you could get in the genre. ReLoaded? Not nearly as good. With over 320 ps1 titles in their original condition as well as being an adult gamer at the time of the PS1 release, next article you write about PS1 games… give me a hit and I’ll throw you some actual information okay? Later sweetie.

  12. Never heard of One, but there was nothing in that video that made me hate it. All of the video comments were positive, so someone is buying it.

  13. @Alissa – FACT: this article features my opinion.

    In seriousness though, I never thought the game was good to begin with, and has aged terribly ever since.

    Id love to see Jet Moto 2!

  15. Didn’t mean to come across as a b*$@&, you do have a point that I wholeheartedly agree with. I don’t understand why they can’t put on games like Mechwarrior, Skullmonkeys, Futurecop L.A.P.D., or G Police.

  16. I totally agree with 2Xtreme. That game blew.

  17. Quick question, I haven’t downloaded any games from PS1 games from PStore, wanted to know are these classic titles region locked?
