Welcome Back PS2 on the PSN

Welcome Back PS2 on the PSN

After the Metal Gear Solid 4 Bundle Pack for the PS3, everyone was upset when they found out that the system was no longer PS2 backwards compatible; SONY took away one of the most important features to the system. To me, I have over 100 games and I can not do anything with them unless I buy another PS2, which I’m still debating on.

Recently there was a meeting between SONY Computer Entertainment America and SEGA, and what was discussed was that SCEA wants to sell all PS2 games on the PSN. When I heard this I cried for a little, in more places on my body than needed. I thought SONY was going to abandon the system forever, like a mother bird abandoning her youngling if they made contact with the human species; I watch too much Discovery Channel. But no, they are bringing PS2 back in our lives and theirs, and once again, SONY has made me extremely proud to be a gamer.  I wonder if they will put the game Wizardry on the PSN; it was a very hard game to find.Also at the meeting there were talks to bring Dreamcast games and Japanese imports to the realm of PSN. The prices for the Japnese games will range between $9.99 to $39.99 . It will be nice if the Japanese games have subtitles, so I can finally know what they are saying. Some of the Dreamcast games that are coming to the PSN will have some “exclusivity”, meaning that many games could also be available on XBOX Live. I cannot wait until I can start playing my PS2 games once again. Go SONY!

  1. Sony is so wishy-washy you never know what they’re going to do. It was barely a month ago when the PS3 re-design and price drop was announced that they said they had no plans to give BC back to the PS3.

    But, the document all that info above was taken from is still classified as a “rumor”, at best, because nothing has been confirmed from either side and, even if Sega confirms it, Sony is the one who’s going to make it happen.

    Here’s hoping for the best, because I’d really love to have BC on my PS3. No use keeping around two pieces of hardware when I only need one to play all my games.
