They could like ransom each of the 108 stars. "If we don't get $1 from everyone one on Suikosource, another star will never see the light of day in another sequel!" They could even up the ransom to $5 each for the Chitatsu and Chiketsu stars.

That would be terrible.

Don't give them any ideas or we'll only get the Stars of Heaven for the next game and the Stars of Earth will be DLC.

Sony doesn't decide what PS1 Classics get put on PSN. If they did, do you really think we'd get Disney titles every -ing week?

I do not understand why they can not release the game on the EU store too. Sure they never released a PAL copy before but the PS3 is multi-region anyway. There are no differences in US or EU PS3 games no more.

I remember buying a US copy of suikoden 3 and using the swap magic disk trick to play it lol.

Oh but the Suikoden I Pal version begs to differ, good sir

lame guess i missed this. I was wondering something though. If you d.load this can you play it on both your PS3 and psp or just whatever its d.loaded to? I ask because im considering getting a PSP and would like to play it on both though i only have the ps3 right now

I do have this game on my ps1 of course, and prefer playing on that because of the save transfers. Outa curiosity did they fix all the translation flubs? It sounds like they didn't

Does anyone know why this isn't available for us in the EU and if there is anyway we can influence it to be?

Simply put, Konami of Europe hasn't put it up. Probably because they don't think it will sell.

You can send an email to [email protected] and ask for it. They're not gonna respond with anything but platitudes, but if they get a lot of request they would probably consider it.

You can also ask Sony for it in their blog: http://blog.eu.playstation.com/ Similarily, if they get a lot of requests they would probably start pushing on Konami to do it. Best chance of any response is when they do their PSN update post.

Yes, all PS1 games bought on the PSN can be played on the PS3 or copied to a PSP (assuming you have enough space on your card). You can even *gasp* have a copy on your PS3 and PSP at the same time without being called a pirate by Sony. You can also do remote play of any PS1 discs you have if you can set that up on your PS3 and have access to wireless somewhere.
