Suikoden Headed For PS3, PSP?

While some sources didn't think too highly of the original Suikoden, this original PlayStation RPG has become a cult classic over the past decade, and is now very difficult to find. It's not as impossible to find as the sequel - current asking price of well over $100 on eBay - but it's still pretty rare. Therefore, RPG aficionados should be excited to hear about this:

According to Video Game Generation, a listing for Suikoden for both the PS3 and PSP has showed up on the ESRB's website, which almost guarantees that Konami plans to re-release the game for download on the PlayStation Store. It may get the standard price of $5.99 or it might cost $9.99 like another of Konami's PS1 classics, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, but either way, it's a far better deal than eBay. What we're really hoping is that more RPGs and other rare titles will be finding their way online for our downloading pleasure; there are literally hundreds of worthwhile titles on the PS1 that should be made available to a whole new generation of gamers. SotN is a great example of that philosophy, and trust us, Suikoden is well worth playing if you're a role-playing fan.

By the way, if you're interested and go to look up the review scores, you can just take our word for it: this is a great RPG. GameSpot was waaaaaaaaaay off.

Yep that would be awesome! I missed out on this RPG... Played Suiko III, IV, V and own Tactics (only hated IV). Gamespot also gave Suiko II a 7.6 - which according to ANY Suiko fan is the BEST of the series so I wouldn't look at the score either.

I have all the Suikoden's expect for 2, and was pretty made that the PSP remake that had both 1 and 2 on the same UMD didn't make it out of Japan. They need to do this for all the RPGs for the PS1 era that were also extremely rare.
