Syphon Filter: Logan's Shadow Confirmed For PS2?
Hey, look! PS2 news! These are few and far between so get your fill while they last.
While fans of the series probably would prefer a PlayStation 3 iteration, this can still be construed as good news: according to Joystiq, the ESRB has rated the PSP stealth/action title, Syphon Filter: Logan's Shadow, for the PS2. It does seem a little odd that Sony would bother to release such a late port but then again, we've really been missing this solid franchise. Back in the original PlayStation days, Syphon Filter - although viewed by some as a poor man's Metal Gear Solid - garnered its fair share of fans, and the series eventually featured several successful PSP installments, including Logan's Shadow. And here's a suggestion: maybe they're planning to bring this to the PS2 to prepare gamers for a whole new title on current consoles...you know how they often re-release old versions of movies when the new take hits store shelves? That type of thing. Of course, we haven't heard anything about a new Syphon Filter but still, we can hope...
If you never got a chance to play any of the games in question, you might want to give this one a shot when it comes to the PS2.
