1, I've already played all those games, several of them multiple times. New RPG offerings are far more enciting to me than older games which is why I've been very happy with the 360.

I thought you were talking about the PSP.

Like I said, I can buy them for the PS2.

Well, you can play PS1 games from the PSP. (games for only $7!)

 

Did you read the OP? He said if they brought these downloadable titles, how could you resist the classics?

 

...those aren't the classics. Those might be the cult-classics. The classics usually involve names like Vagrant Story, and Final Fantasy in them, and they are amongst the best games of all time.

Anyone who would buy a PSP or a PS3 to play Suikoden II, just needs to go buy Suikoden V and chalk that missed game up to experience.

A game that I would buy a PSP for? Well, SotN is on PSP, in the form of a sidegame to a much, much worse Castlevania game, but if you've never played SotN, then that's one classic arpg that kicks those other "classics" asses.

 

 

That said, if they released Xenogears(2 discs if I recall) then I'd buy a PS3 to play it on, lol. I have Xenogears, but it freezes at 20 hours in, disc defect. I need to finish it.

For the record, Xenogears beats Vagrant Story, with a stick.

And Symphony of the Night is already available to be downloaded (just like XBLA).



I do not get why PS3 is mentioned in a RPG thread, its next gen offerings have failed, both WKC and Demon Soul are the worst scoring next gen RPGs ever in Japan

Also has absolutly nothing to anticipate besides FF13vs, which will 99% come to 360



I think a DS and the VC are the best place for old RPGs, arn't they?




8th gen predictions. (made early 2014)
PS4: 60-65m
WiiU: 30-35m
X1: 30-35m
3DS: 80-85m
PSV: 15-20m

The PS3 can play any PS1 RPG in existance, unlike the X360 and Wii.  Get it now?  Did you read the first post?

Except for remakes, most PS1 RPGs are unlikely to ever show up on VC or on the DS.  The PS1 had a LOT of great RPGs.

VC is the destination for N64 and 16-bit era RPGs.  I would say that the PS1 had more decent RPGs than all of those platforms combined.  There are some gems on VC, but they pale in quantity (and quality for obvious reasons) to the PS1's lineup.

If multi-disc RPGs suddenly showed up on PSN... would that change the picture for anyone?  Lunar 1-2, Final Fantasy 7-9, Wild Arms 2, Thousand Arms, Grandia, ...the list would be pretty big, pretty fast.

It's never too late to enjoy a game if it's good. RPG?? What's important???

But I could play any PS1 and PS2 RPG on my PS1 or PS2 for nothing, or for a small fraction of the PS3's price. I don't get the point being argued either, how does the PS3 being able to play PS1 RPG's help it's case when the most likely PS3 customer probably owns a PS2 that could do the same thing?

You can do those things but also have a PS3? Outside of upscaling and a literal response, it's like saying why buy a Wii whenever you have a SNES and NES so you don't need to Virtual Console.
