Syphon Filter: Logan's Shadow Sneaks Onto PS2 In June

Isn't it a little late in the day to be porting PSP games to the PS2? It was a common occurrence several years back but these days...

Well, perhaps it doesn't matter when the game in question is as good as Syphon Filter: Logan's Shadow. This portable title raked in rave reviews from the critics back in 2007 so now that it's coming to the PS2, there should be plenty of excited fans. As revealed at the PlayStation Blog, IGN's PSP Game of the Year (IGN also ranked it at #6 on a list of the top 25 PSP games of all time) will land on the PS2 on June 1. Featuring Azam Ali's soundtrack, Greg Rucka's story, and some "important tweaks" that will benefit those who play it on the PS2, Logan's Shadow appears very attractive. With the advantage of more buttons on the DualShock 2, the team has added a snap button to allow easier transitions between open-field fighting and cover, plus a "swing out and aim" button (L1) to make the combat feel more intuitive overall. Oh, and they've worked to give us better textures, too. Followers of the series might also want to check out the first-ever Syphon Filter digital graphic novel; clocking in at 120 pages, "The Opposition Effect" bridges the plots between Dark Mirror and Logan's Shadow. This will be on the PSN some time this summer.

We're really hoping they're working on a brand new installment for the PlayStation 3. Although usually overshadowed by Metal Gear Solid, the Syphon Filter franchise was always solid and typically very entertaining.

Who is this supposed to be for, some less fortunate 3rd world country that just got the PS2 recently?

I'm more inclined to play PSP games on the PSP. Dark Mirror was a blast.

I really love the syphon filter series. in my opinion on the psp they really came into their own aswell. I think the series should just continue on the psp. Or even do both, there's enough potential for a big instalment on the ps3 and psp. hell even have connectivity, ala MKII MGS4 style.

I still play my PS2 quite a bit, so I may just have to check this out. I imagine the graphics must be pretty good on a brand new PS2 game.

I've got the SF:LS PSP game, plus SF:Dark Mirror on both the PSP & the PS2, so I'll definitely be looking out to add this updated SF:LS PS2 version too.

I actually named my pitcher on Road to the Show Logan Wolverine as that was the coolest name combo I could get the announcers to say.

just one question.
why the ps2?
honestly what the hell are they doing!?
why not a remake for the ps3, the console people actually play these days, or even better a all new syphon filter title!
honestly sony i wonder what the f*ck is in your heads at times because its certainly not brains!
they drop 8 days and the getaway 3, 2 of the BEST games i have EVER! seen.
the getaway was a rival to GTA and thats sold what only a mere 50M plus sales, meh thats nothing!
and for what?
a freaking kids game!

i swear to god if they do not announce a new syphon filter game and a new twisted metal game for the ps3 at E3 this year im going ape sh*t, march down to sony headquarters, kill everyone in sight and take over!
only then will we start seeing some popular series released!

sony have so lost their focous this gen its freaking embarrassing!
the playstation has ALWAYS! been about bringing the best games possible so why has that changed?
i want great games so why are they wasting their time, money, my time, money on sh*t like
motion controllers.
stupid kids games like eyepet.
stupid services no one needs.

honestly for fu*ks sake i bought a ps3 to play the best games this industry has ever seen, not so i can watch music videos, movies, or have minute by minute updates on what people are doing!
i thought the ps3 was a freaking games console not a fracrking entertainment center!

if you want to play kids games theres this great new invention called the wii!
if you want to watch music videos theres this fantastic new invention called television!
if you want to watch movies there is this fantastic new invention called a cinema.
if you want to know what people are doing every minute of their life theres something seriously wrong with you, but anyway theres this fantastic new invention called a telephone!

maybe thats why sony are bleeding money and are coming last?
there so hefted up on being jack of all trades they cant even get the important things right!

erm, sony are actually doing pretty damn good, and are hardly trailing microsoft at all with the current numbers, that's disregarding the inflated numbers of the amount of numerous consoles 1 person has had to buy, get refurbished just to keep playing with a microsoft console. that's just hardware too, we have sooo many great games on offer for the ps3 and psp right now, what's to complain about?

Linux on the other hand...

there wasting time and money on things they should not be doing.
they should be taking the time, effort and money put from motion controls, facebook and co and put it towards what matters, what the system was MADE for.
instead of having those teams they could put them together and set them off to obtain licensing rights to re publish, remaster ps1 or ps2 games.
there are so many more productive, constructive, better things they could do with their resources.
