There are plenty of fantastic PS1 classics available on the PlayStation Network for download. But there are three that RPG fans desperately desire.
The three titles in question are Suikoden II , Vagrant Story , and Xenogears, and gamers have been clamoring to get them on the PSN…well, ever since there was a PSN. The good news? Bo Hernandez from the PlayStation Store Team gave us an update on the situation in the Comments section over at the PlayStation Blog : in regards to the impossible-to-find Suikoden II , Hernandez simply said, "We'll see what we can do!" He replied to the wish for the critically acclaimed action/RPG, Vagrant Story , with- "Hopefully soon?" As a reminder, those lucky Japanese gamers have had this one available for over a year now. They've been able to download Xenogears for over two years now and as for the possibility of a North American PSN release, Hernandez was more vague. He would only say that it (or potentially a bunch of PSN classics) is "still being tested."
But we figure that if they can manage to bring these three classics over, RPG fans should never go wanting again. There were a ton of role-playing titles on the PS1, though, so…what else do you want?
