Oh another question, has any game that has been released as a PS2 Classic ever got an HD remake?

Nothing other than possibly faster load times for the PSN version.

Sorry, I didn't Clarify (Unless you were just trolling me then F*** you.) but I meant in terms of resolution.

You know when you put a PS2 game in the PS3 how it looks like ASS on HDTVs? Well, does that same thing happen with PS2 Classic?

This isn't all, actually. All psn ps2 classics use full software emulation, regardless of the ps3 they are running on. What this means is that if you have an old, full hardware BC ps3, the ps2 disc could very well run better than the ps2 classic, a lot of which have been shown to have minor, emulation issues, such as occasionally framerate drops, etc.

Also, unlike with ps1 classics, they do not share the same memory card data.

In terms of resolution they are the same with some games being exceptions like Persona 3 FES which has this annoying glowing thing for some of the objects. I don't remember what the term for it is.
