Sony Seeking PS2 And Dreamcast Titles For PlayStation 3

The PS3's library continues to expand with every passing day, and the original titles and PS1 classics on the PlayStation Store add to the rising number. But what about the massive PS2 library...?

There have been rumors circulating ever since Sony pulled backwards compatibility for PS2 software out of the PS3, and now, a leaked document containing meeting notes between SCEA and Sega tells us PS2 games may return in a big way. The meeting was held back on August 5 and it featured Sega's comments on upcoming PS3 and PSP releases, as well as Sony's plans for their flagship console in the near future. What's most interesting is this: "SCEA wants to sell all PS2 titles on PSN." They even go so far as to mention Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, which means it may not be much longer before you start seeing classic PS2 titles alongside the PS1 titles on the Store. They even talk about how Sony would market these games, with PS3 controllers shown in PS2 television ads. To drive up interest even further, it seems Sony and Sega might collaborate on another big project, and that would involve bringing Dreamcast games to the PS3. It appears that Sega needs to provide SCEA with a list of games that might be worthy re-release candidates, and Sony wants exclusivity, too.

There's no doubt that Sony has worked to position the PS3 as the ultimate home entertainment console and perhaps the only significant drawback of the new systems is the lack of PS2 b/c. This would help to alleviate that pain, and the inclusion of DC titles is a surprise. We'll have to keep a close eye on this; perhaps we'll hear more about it at Sony's TGS press conference in a few days.
