In an interview with The Examiner, Sony’s John Koller has hinted that PlayStation 2 titles may well see the light of day on the PS3’s PSN Store. “Expansion of the PlayStation Network will be a critical part of what we focus on this year,” he said. “Digital distribution is something that will continually evolve, and we have the perfect platform in PSN to evolve along with it.
“Last year, we saw a number of amazing original games on PSN like Flower, PixelJunk Shooter and Gravity Crash and you can expect to see more exclusive titles in 2010.”
“With the strength and volume of the rich PlayStation 2 lineup,” he continues, “there are obviously fans out there who would love to get their hands on these fan-favorite titles again. We don’t have any news to share on that front at the moment, but keep in mind that digital distribution isn’t the only way to bring classic PlayStation 2 games over to PS3.
“God of War Collection is a great example of how technology like Blu-ray can be used to not only reintroduce PlayStation 2 classics, but improve on them at the same time by adding new features like PSN Trophies, higher resolution textures, and increased frame rates – all on a single Blu-ray disc.”
