Yep, more PS1 classics are headed to the PlayStation Network, for play on either the PlayStation 3 or PSP. The more that come, the more we can take a look into the past and go, "aw, remember that one?"

According to the Examiner.com , the ESRB has leaked a list of new PS1 classic titles they've re-rated for release on the PSN. This includes recently released games like Bloody Roar and the Tomb Raider s, but there are plenty of new faces…one of 'em is pretty weird-lookin'. Here's the list:

For those of you who weren't around during the PS1 era, the Oddworld titles were some of the most impressive of the time. The original Oddworld was not only one of the best-looking games on the original PlayStation, it was also one of the most original and in my opinion, one of the absolute best. The sequels weren't too bad, either. Syphon Filter 2 is a great addition, as is Um Jammer Lammy (the sequel to PaRappa the Rapper , if you weren't aware), and those Coolboarders games were an absolute blast for fans. Gotta love our PS1 classics!

Not one of those interest me. Where's FFVIII and IX? I contacted Capcom abd asked them for MvC1. They said no go.

You might want to take a chance on Oddworld:AE if you want a cool story with unique and original gameplay. The graphics may have faded with time, but the fun will not go out of style. Anyone out there feel the same?

graphics will look great on the psp, I was playing this just the other day, theres loads of detail there..
It will look very cool and play amzingly well on the handheld.

perfect couple of games to come across.

MvC1 for PS1 isn't very good since you can't switch in tag matches.

Don't remember that being a problem but you could very well be correct. Maybe they can port the arcade version or dreamcast version.

fart

hello

grrrr

ok

those are the things you will hear once you have started Oddworld. its hard to explain, youtube it!!
its basically a platformer, but an intelligent one, one that isnt your normal run, jump, hide and attack. its a story that will pull at your heart strings and lol while youre doing it.

The Oddworld game are the best, that series is the only reason I ever got a XBOX.

Um Jammer Lammy should be cool to the kids get a kick out of Parrapa, they should love this.

Unfortunately we won't see PaRappa the Rapper as a PSOne classic and at the lower price because that would cannibalize sales of the higher-priced PSP version.

I won't buy these anyway. I just need to find the time and motivation and figure out how to put my huge collection of PS1 games onto memory stick for my PSP Fat.

TheHighlander

Why? HotShots Golf on PSP has sold alongside the PSP classic for some time.

There are other examples of this. Personally I am not sure that one cannibalizes the other, they may be complementary.

Orvisman

Hot shots on the PSP is a new game with new graphics and gameplay isn't it?

Parappa The Rapper on PSP, as far as I can tell, is identical to the PS1 classic. So, why would Sony sell one for $5.99 and one for $20-plus?

Also, ask yourself this, why release Unjammer Lammy, the sequel, for PSOne classics before Parappa The Rapper if you plan on releasing the latter at all.

TheHighlander
TheHighlander

There are two HotShots games on PSP specifically for the PSP, but there is also one of the PS1 classic versions of Hot Shots Golf available on PSN.

The Wipeout games are another example of this, and FFVII shouldn't take too much away from any of the various FFVII sequels that have arrived.

I'm just thinking that it's like cross marketing something, the one supports the other, you know?

I loved Oddworld, I just wish more games were made for players to actually care for the the characters. Great story in that game.

TheHighlander

LBP, R&C, Uncharted, the upcoming Eyepet, most RPGs have at least one character you like, though there are exceptions.

That said, I do miss the golden age of the platformer that spawned Ratchet and Clank.

What I would love to see is an RPG based in a conglomeration of the various game worlds with Crash, Spyro, Jak, Sly, Ratchet, and all their side-kicks along with the villains brought together for some mash-up, platforming fun with an RPG like story and character development. It would be a massive game.

I like the way you think, kind of like Kingdom Hearts but with playstation characters.

LV, were you ever able to get the characters HP to 9999 in FFIX? I maxed out everyones level to 99 but their HP and MP was always short of 9999/999. VII and VIII I was always able to mac out the HP and MP. But not in IX.

LimitedVertigo

If I recall correctly I was also unable to. However I was such a powerful badass I didn't really care. Good point though, I wonder what others have to say on this (highlander).

Jawknee

With VII and VIII once you reached level 99 you could mess around with the materia and junction system to push the HP and MP to it's max of 9999/999. But in IX I couldn't figure out how to do it.

I agree Jawk, I personally thought 9 was quite difficult.

It was. The AI was more intellegent then usual. The enemies would focus on one character at a time and would relentlesly pick on your weakest character or the one closest to KO. Kept me on my toes.

Did anyone ever beat the ?Ozmond? (not sure what what it was called)? That thing was tough as hell. Harder than the Omega Weapon of VIII and the ruby weapon of VII.

I'm sure its a good list of games but sadly i never got to play any of these titles and I'm sure I missed out. I'll probably buy 1 or 2 but I really want spyro 2 gateway to glimmer on the UK PS Store. Oh how i missed that game.
