“This is our most exciting and diverse slate of PS2 and PSOne titles yet,” said Bruno Bonnell, Chairman and CEO of Infogrames, Inc. “Our development teams have harnessed the power and capabilities of PS2 to deliver games that will capture the imagination and excitement of the gaming audience. We are especially thrilled to introduce our reinvented Atari brand on PlayStation 2 and are confident that PS2 fans will be riveted by the graphics and challenges of these new games.”
Mr. Bonnell continued, “We also recognize tremendous value in continuing to develop games for legacy platforms, such as the original PlayStation, which is why we have a dynamic line-up of games for these fans, as well as fans of next-generation consoles. The demand for PS2 and PSOne games is as strong as ever, demonstrating customer loyalty to both platforms. We believe that our PS2 and PSOne holiday line-up will more than satisfy this demand…and reinforce Sony’s reputation for delivering top-quality, innovative games.”
