Capcom Bringing More PS1 Classics To The Network
If you enjoy checking out those PS1 classics available on the PlayStation Store, you'll be happy to know that Capcom will continue pumping 'em out.
According to Siliconera, Capcom will have more PS1 classics on the way, although we don't have exact titles or dates. We do know that the publisher has already submitted several to Sony for final approval, and here's hoping they will arrive on the Store within the next month or so. Here's what Christian Svensson, Vice President of Strategic Planning & Business Development, had to say on the issue: "The first PS1 titles for PSN were submitted last week...when I have some dates for them, well let you know." For the record, the ESRB has already rated the likes of Street Fighter Alpha 2 and Street Fighter Alpha 3 as PS3 and PSP games, but Capcom's library is pretty damn huge; any number of titles could be on the list. Take a quick look at a list of possibilities and pick your favorites! What do you want to see on the PSN? How many of you have kept the original PS1 games and they're currently sitting on a shelf somewhere? How many have yet to download a PS1 classic from the Store? If you're in the latter group, we'd like to point you in the direction of Konami's Suikoden; it's a can't-miss old-school RPG.
Anyway, we'll let you know as soon as Capcom comes forth with the games that will soon grace the PSN. If you hope for them hard enough, maybe a few of your favorites will be included...
