I don't understand why they can't give us some good titles that are missing, like Skies of Arcadia, Shenmue and Powerstone for example.

I mean everytime i check the store i rage, there's tens of useless titles(Kim Possible, DonaldD Quack Attack, to name 2), but they can't give us ports(even through basic emulation)of some great games.

Whats the reasoning behind it, do that crap really sell?

to be fair.. the stuff we consider crap, are probably fun for the little kids they are intended for. It's up to devs and publishers to put of their old games as classics (assuming sony agrees)...isn't it? Or does Sony ask them for it?

Well i mentioned 2 kids games, but there's also more mature trash games if you check, lots of them.

The only way a game will be produced is if there's demand for it. The crappy games sell at least moderately well for the time and money put into their development.

I still don't understand why different regions have different games. Like apparently Shadow Hearts is on the Japanese PSN. How hard would it be to put Shadow Hearts on the NA PSN? The game is already in English so....

I guess so.... but i still don't understand what's so hard about going to the developer and tell them: "look, we wanna put this on the store with a basic software emulation, it will cost you nothing and you will get a share of the profit".

Rant is over anyway. :)

It's not the developer's choice. It's the publisher's. If the publisher doesn't see potential profit or demand, why would the spend the money to put it on the store?

Doubt the publisher for the Dora games saw profit in putting them on the PSN.

This and third party games are not in control of Sony obviously.
