Metal Gear Solid, Resident Evil Going Digital Download?
We've always said the same thing: if you plan to make PS1 classics available on the PlayStation Network, you had best assemble the classics. The best of the best.
We're not quite there yet, but there's evidence that several true-blue classics will soon be headed to digital download land. It was first rumored by PlayStation LifeStyle last month and now, Examiner.com has found that the ESRB has rated the following titles:
- Metal Gear Solid
- Resident Evil: Director's Cut
- Spec Ops: Covert Assault
- Spec Ops: Ranger Elite
- Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six
Well, what's the point of re-rating age-old video games? As far as we can tell, there's one reason and one reason only. They'd be fantastic additions to the PSN and the best part is, if you were too young for the PS1 classics, you don't have to miss out any longer. Provided you can accept the giant difference in visuals, you'll be in for a very big treat if you've never played stuff like the original MGS before. Just remember...some of us recall a time when those graphics were downright mind-blowing. ;)
