Anyone now the official reason why Sony takes so long to release PS One Classics

Like how Japan has had Chrono Cross for a while now but not NA. Or how it took them for every to release BOF4 and PE2. But they still haven't put out Legend of Dragoon?

I mean why can't they just release 2-3 games every month. The PS3 can already emulate them, it's not like they are "adding" functionality. If Sony has the licensing rights to it why do they take so long to let people buy it?

I would assume they're probably trying to strategically target the releases to maximize sales.

"There haven't been any RPGs on PS3 for a while, here's Chrono Cross".


It likely doesn't work, but I suspect that's the theory.

From developers blogs ive read it's apparently not as simple as dumping an iso and uploading it. It's a bit more complicated.

Not to mention potential IP issues and the need for titles to be re-rated for DD by the ESRB.

It's because (besides the ones published by Sony themselves) publishers have to pay to have their product put on the PSN and I think most are loath to do so

I don't know myself but I'd like to find out. It's saddening to not be able to pick up all these great titles again and pick up classics I never got around to playing.

PE2 is not out. Thanks for getting me excited, TC.

Wait, I thought PE2 was on it?

Not that I care, I have the discs to mine still, and a 60gb PS3 *puts on his cool guy shades*
