Sony Computer Entertainment promised at this year's E3 event that the dreadful dearth of classic PlayStation games for download to PS3 and PSP would finally be coming to an end with new releases in the coming weeks and months, and it looks to be that they meant it. This week alone, PSone fans have been able to download and re-enjoy Final Fantasy VII, Medal of Honor and Street Fighter Alpha 2, and on June 18th the acclaimed Metal Gear Solid will grace the PlayStation Store.
But has this all this PlayStation classic activity been hooey and applesauce to cash in on the excitement of E3? Not likely. This week, Sony and its publishing partners have registered with the ESRB six more titles for release on the PlayStation Store -- none reach the heights of a FF VII or MGS (and the fact that a game is rated by the ESRB does not necessarily mean that these games will actually be released any time soon,) but the fact that there's so much activity surrounding PSone classics can only be a good thing for those of us hoping for more and better classic games to buy on the service. Here's a list of the six new games listed as evaluated by the ESRB this week:
Contra Legacy of War
Dead in the Water
Mobile Light Force -- aka Gunbird & Castle of Shikigami
Spec Ops: Airborne Commando
XS Junior League Soccer
Still no Legend of Dragoon or Legend of Legaia...
