Right, did a little ratings check on the PEGI and found a whole bunch of unregistered Playstation One for the PSN type games.

It like anything that was a great 3rd party game is not available..

They base games on the region [easier for them to do]. RPG's are so for Japan. too bad though ;(

Interesting that there would be 2 Wipeout games being released considering that Wipeout HD is coming in the summer. I know that one isn't competition for the other, but it is interesting.

Also, I wouldn't be surprised if Sony were keeping an eye on the sales of some PSOne titles, perhaps like Vib Ribbon, to see if they warrant an HD PSN remake.

I'll be there day one for Omega Boost. I was always interested in playing it, but it just slipped through cracks two gens ago. I'll definitely check it out this time though.

I, for one, am aware of this, certainly one of the greater failings of the Playstation Network.

The PlayStation Network section of the PEGI site isn't the be all and end all of information on potential PS1 downloads in Europe. All of Zoo Digital's titles which have been released on PSN in Europe so far (like Motorhead and N2O) are rated under "PlayStation 1" and not "PlayStation Network", so potentially anything in this section might be fair game in the future as well.

Indeed, but two patterns emerge from this list that are worth noting, first all of the games are specifically rated for the Playstation Network and secondly they are all first party titles. (SCEE publishs Namco games over there)

I wouldn't mind some of those in the US (of course, the Crash games are already available).

I wonder what the chance is that they would release a game like Vib Ribbon that never got released here to begin with?

All these threads do is make me more pissed off at SCEA's handling of PS1 games on our store. We should be getting at least two games a week, if not more on occasion.

While I completely agree with the frustration, I believe (though I could be wrong) the issue is that SCEA is making sure that every PS1 games that goes up on the US store is 100% playable on a PSP as well. Because of this, we're getting far less games, but at the same time every PS1 titles supports the PSP, unlike Japan.

If this is indeed the case, I'm really torn: on one hand, it sucks seeing Japan get so many games while we don't, but on the other, it is nice to know that every PS1 game we get will get more milage since it can also work on a PSP.

Seriously, whoever is in charge of the NA Playstation Store is a dick. Give us some damn games already. Yes I'm being harsh, but come on with the games already.

The PSone era catalog is money in the bank, if you just put the games up for download.

Even though I bought the individual Namco XBLA titles, I would double dip on some of the Museum downloads because of some of the titles on there...

I can understand that, but I really feel like this kind of policy should be company wide. Why does it not matter if it works on PSP overseas?

Everybody and their brother that actually cares about PS3 games at this point knows how to create accounts for the foreign stores. There are far too many occasions where the territories are not "treated" equally for no good APPARENT reason and it pisses people off. Games that have little to no localization taking months to appear on some stores after it has already appeared on others, the dearth of PS1 games on some stores while there are craptons on others, etc. I don't care why this happens, and if legal issues are involved then I have a hard time believing a company with the size and clout of Sony can't get things done. I just feel like they aren't trying very hard.

The era when companies could get away with shafting one territory or staggering releases for months or years should be over, IMO. It just creates frustration and ill-will from the consumers. Having the Internet means we KNOW what is going on everywhere.

I'm also completely confused about why they are not offering any non-Sony games in the store. Yes, some games probably came from companies that might not exist anymore, but I imagine the rights to a LOT of PS1-era games are still held by extant companies. (I imagine that some of them also might be more motivated to create PSP/PSN versions of them than Sony appears to be...)

Is Sony deliberately withholding access to PSN sales to non-Sony holdings? Do they not have the technical ability to provide other companies with the devkits required to port their games? Or is something else going on?

I have had official firmware on my PSP forever, and I want to support the idea of a legitimate digital distribution ground for older games, but this situation is REALLY starting to piss me off when it seems that anyone with an actual PS1 disc and custom firmware can just rip their favorite games onto the PSP and it works perfectly.

hang in there brother. Don't let the dark side get you.

I played the hell out of Colony Wars back in the day. It was a good 'space' game for its time, and I would definitely pick it up again on PSN. I could go for some Ridge Racer too.

Which territory are you talking about? SCEI has allowed for a plethora of thrid party PSOne games onto the Japanese service and even SCEE has been better about third party support having backers such as EA Europe and Zoo Digital who have release games onto the UK service, SCEA only has Konami's SOTN on the US/Canada Store and I a mconvinced that is only due to the XBLA having the game as well.
