Notice: This is not the weekly Japanese thread, do not post unrelated news in here please.

Square Enix has announced in this month's Dengeki Playstation due out on Friday that they are committing to releasing their classics on PSN. Starting TODAY (25th June), they will release Xenogears and Einhander on PSN, for 600yen each. There are 12 key titles that they plan on releasing on Game Archives, starting with Xenogears. There isn't a clean full scan of the interview yet, so this is all I know right now to be 100% accurate. Discuss. :D

Edit: The following titles are coming out TODAY, at 600yen each. They're all under the S-E label.

Xenogears (Square)
Einhander (Square)
Astronoka (Enix)
Rakugaki Showtime (Enix)
Raystorm (Taito)
Fighters Impact (Taito)

Are these going to be PSP doable as well? (Are all? I haven't really ever booted PSN up for many good reasons.)

Also, I need to figure out the damn conbini PSN point thing.

Next, SE games on VC and Wiiware. Bring on Chrono Trigger!

We'll probably never see them.

It pisses me off that SCEA is ignoring their past.

PS1 classics on PSN could be a gold mine like classic titles are on the Wii.

I have the games already but yeah, i'll probably reget Einhander so it's on the drive and handily playable. I wish we could install our PS1 games to the HDD (IRONY BUSTER MAX !)

Personal interest for me. There are a lot of classic games I've missed like Xenogears, and around $6 a pop is a great place to start ;D

I'm gonna need some of them JP PSN cards, STAT 3;

You just know they're going to be overpriced somehow.

If these come to the states, time to get a bigger HDD.

It's just no surprise. I mean, it's cool we got decent stuff instead of dogshit like Ehrgheiz or Vagrant Story, but the way people are acting here you'd think FF7 got remade.

Seems to me like an indication they're not interested in porting/remaking their PS1 titles.

Also yes PSN PS1 games means they are both PS3/PSP compatible. Now SCEA better say something about this soon(maybe E3), SE PS1 games are great and should be made avialble on the US PStore.

Out of all the companies that release PSN games, I would never have guessed Square would be one of them considering their remake bonanza.
