    I bought god hand like a mug, turns out it is literally emulating the original ps2 game, which is even more galling as when i put in the actual ps2 disc of the game it won't play it. booo sony etc.

    at least with the ps1 games on psn you can still play the original discs.

    Holy shit you guys have a crapload of them. I was really hoping for the Mark of Kri series to come digitally. And as much as this is wishful thinking, the Armada Transformers game would be sweet.

    Odin Sphere is definitely worth checking out, as one of the biggest issues of the original PS2 version was the maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaassive slowdown that would take place when the larger (usually boss) characters were on screen. The emulated version is greatly sped up, which actually makes the game playable. The game itself is a bit of a visual masterpiece so it's worth checking out. I never managed to push my way through the game in its bogged down original form so for it to be available in this way is a bit of a godsend.

    I did NOT know this, because I figured it was just a clone of the disc version. I will buy this tonight.

    really? that is interesting if that's the case. it does look just like you're playing the game in backward compatibility though, though it doesn't appear to use the memory cards liek ps1 games do.

    Well that's one of the things that turned me off to an otherwise-amazing game, so I hope it's the case :)

    Supposedly Odin Sphere ran more smoothly on first gen PS3's when it was emulating off the disc, as well.

    If Sony really wanted my money they'd negotiate a PS2 classic release of Okami.

    This, but also I bought Odin thanks to this thread. No regrets. I forgot how beautiful this game looked and moved.
