    I own actual copies of God Hand, GrimGrimoire, and Odin Sphere. The other two never really interested me. You can actually still find copies of Maximo all over the place. Ring of Red is the only really obscure title out of the bunch.

    Awesome! Finally I can ... wait, buy these games again?

    ... Argh. No, no that's okay, I guess I'll just keep my PS2 plugged in. Backwards compatibility is officially dead at this point now.

    It's a hell of an odd selection of titles, though. God Hand? Grim Grimoire? Those are probably about as far from the mainstream as you can possibly get. Hell, who knows, maybe they'll put out some games I never managed to find, like Shadow Hearts Covenant. That'd be nice.

    I wonder if this version will be able to overcome Odin Sphere's horrific slowdown - that made the game nigh unplayable for me in parts. I could be convinced to try OS again if it's not just a straight emulated port.

    It's straight emulation. Nothing added.

    Fingers crossed that the PS3 can emulate the PS2 better than the PS2 could operate by itself then :p . I'll definitely wait on impressions of Odin Sphere from others who get it, because that slowdown is killer.

    I wonder if they will allow for software PS2 emulation again then using PS2 discs. After all, you can play PS1 discs and they're emulated as well. There's no reason they can't do the same for the PS2. After all, they used to do it. On the same bloody system.

    Hrm, God Hand has been piquing my interest for quite a while now, glad I'll finally have some way to play it.

    Its 100% boredom where you punch and kick decepticons until the game tells you you can move on. Then do some more punching and kicking. Then run through a field of land mines while timed and then do some more punching. Despite the license, its a bad game.
