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.

Holy shit if SCEA does not bring these titles to the USA in a reasonable fashion we need to go after them.

Why are people acting like this is something amazing? It's nice and all, but not orgasm worthy.

Holy shit! Just when I was planning to start Xenogears. Hope it's out on AU PS3 by the time I buy one.

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

I don't know whether to laugh or cry when I think of the chances these will appear on the American store.

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.

:O!
Both games for under $20!!

The thing is...when (if) we'll see them outside Japan..
Seeing how SCEA has nearly abandoned PSOne Classics..

Squeenix has snubbed the digital download market up to this point. Just look at the VC.

That's why this is a megaton.

that's more like it!

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.

EINHANDER?!?!?!?!

Holy shit... must get. Quick, what's the best way to get JP PSN points ASAP?
 
if SCEA doesnt bring these SE titles to the US PSN, i will hate them forever (or at least until FFXIII comes out)

any chance the HK store will have the english versions?

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

Oh shit this is Sick!!

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.

It seems like every chance Square Enix gets to make loads of money, they miss it. I'm hoping they don't do it again by not doing this for the US.

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