Japan now getting two PS1 updates a month - where's ours?

Another Japanese PSN update consisting of PS1 games occurred today. While we don't normally report on this, some interesting/annoying/enviable news has also slipped out alongside it. Since the PS3's launch the Japanese PSN Store has been updated once a month with large additions of PS1 games playable on both the PS3 and the PSP. From now on, however, the PS1 updates will be coming twice a month.

So where's ours? The EU and US PSN Stores have had very few PS1 game releases. Europe got a few more games added a couple of months ago, but most of those were taken down due to glaring glitches and errors. If the recent list of rumored PSN releases is to believed, then we've got a few more to look forward to this week. Even so, the Japan store has many times more than Europe and the US added together. When is Sony going to realize we want to pay money for old games we never bought the first time around? Seriously Sony, you're missing out on free money here.

Japanese PSN receives a treasure trove of PS1 games


The Japanese PSN has had a veritable explosion of PS1 titles added to its collection. This puts the total number available on the Japanese Store up to twelve million or so now, we think. Hopefully we'll be seeing some more being released onto the US and EU stores in the near future. The full list of titles made available today are as follows.
  • AI Mah Jong Selection (hamster)
  • DEPTH (Sony computer Entertainment)
  • Gussun Paradise (IREM software)
  • Jet Moto (Sony computer Entertainment)
  • Jumping Flash! 2 (Sony computer Entertainment)
  • Major Wave Series: Puzzle Mania 2 (hamsters)
  • Major Wave Series: Zipangu Jima: Unmei wa Saikoro ga Kimeru!? (Hamsters)
  • Metal Slug (SNK Playmore)
  • Oasis Road (Idea Factory)
  • Panekit (Sony computer Entertainment)
  • Samurai Spirits III: Zankuro Musouken (SNK Playmore)
  • Samurai Spirits IV: Amakusa Kourin Special (SNK Playmore)
  • Spectral Tower 2 (Idea Factory)
  • SuperLite 1500 Series Cotton original (Success)
  • SuperLite 1500 Series Sanvein (Success)
  • The King OF Fighters '98 (SNK Playmore)
  • The King OF Fighters '99 (SNK Playmore)
  • The King OF Fighters Kyo (SNK Playmore)
  • XI [sai] (Sony computer Entertainment)
There are a total of two games in that list that, if made available, we would download. Perhaps it's best to stick with the quality-over-quantity philosophy that SCEA and SCEE have for the PS1 releases. Though having said that, perhaps there's a happy medium between the two that means we can actually get some new games at some point.

PS1 games return in this week's Store update


The Motorstorm update isn't the only thing available in today's PS Store update. Two new PS1 classics are returning to the PS3. Check out this week's update:
  • Motorstorm Time Attack (free): Remember to update your game to version 1.2 before downloading this free expansion!
  • Hot Shots Golf 2 ($5.99)
  • Coolboarders ($5.99)
  • The Heartbreak Kid movie trailer (free)
Both Hot Shots Golf 2 and Coolboarders were previously available on the Store, until they mysteriously disappeared. Now, these games will be playable on both your PS3 and PSP systems. PSP Fanboy reviewed the games: Hot Shots Golf 2 came recommended, but Coolboarders did not, earning a dismal 3/10 score.

Massive PS Store update includes PS1 games, Super Rub a Dub, and more


Most gamers won't miss the lack of Calling All Cars in today's update to the PLAYSTATION Store. Why? Because there's just so much to see and play:
  • PS1 titles, now playable on PS3. 2Xtreme, Crash Bandicoot®, Destruction Derby, Jet Moto®, Jumping Flash™, MediEvil™, Rally Cross™, Syphon Filter®, Tekken®2 and WipeOut® are all available for only $5.99. Players that previously purchased these games for PSP will be able to download these updated files at no additional charge. For reviews of all these games, visit PSP Fanboy and read their Retro Reviews.
  • Super Rub a Dub starter pack & full game. Get a free taste of Sony's quirky motion-sensing duck game. Addicts can get the full game for only $7.
  • Gauntlet II full game. The retro classic is back for only $5.
  • Game Trailers: Super Stardust HD, Rampart, BlackSite: Area 51
  • Movie Trailers: Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End
Get your PS3s ready to download. It's going to be a long night.
