    i think there's a healthy number of people who would pay £15 for FFVII alone.

    Do we belive Sony though? How many times have they flat out denied something only for it to be true?

    If the feture was added I would probably finally buy a PS3.

    Only if they're region agnostic - so I can get my hands on some RPGs that haven't made it to the UK.

    Sony should definitely consider the idea..

    They could probably do it better than Microsoft, who's backwards compatibility (while there) leaves a lot to be desired.. hundreds of games still don't work on 360 (including Operation Flashpoint: Elite.. GGRRR).. And even the ones that do are often buggy (Mercernaries - go to the north west of the map.. and your game crashes... WTF?)..

    you mean XII right?

    it would be an excellent idea, and they're fools if they don't. I missed out on buying a ps2, ploughed all my money it pc gaming instead and i was absolutely gutted when they dropped the backwards compatibility of the ps3, haven't bought one because of it. if this happened, i probably would get one

    I think it would be a good idea, especially for those people who have non backward compatible ps3s disc wise, although if your ps3 can play psx and ps2 games then you could just pick them up on ebay for allot less, I got metal gear 2 a few weeks ago for less than £5 inc. p&p.

    Urgh, FFXII was absolutely terrible. I still haven't managed to force myself to play it for more than 45 minutes - the characters annoy me that much. :( VII was good, but it's not the best in the series - it's just that it's the one that more people get exposed to.

    Whenever Sony states "no plans" or "not interested", it normally means they are doing it.

    It really makes you wonder what is actually going on.....maybe they will unveil a new SKU that sports BC and that would make it less realistic to want to bring PS2 games to PSN, but again who knows.....personally I would think they would want to bring them to PSN, but idk the cost/time/effort involved in doing that.....
