If you purchased a PlayStation 3 within the past couple of years, chances are you don’t have a backwards compatible console, but don’t fret, for Sony is striving to do more than just offer you some of the best PS2 titles via HD collections. That’s right, they’re also brining a number of “rare classic games” to the PlayStation Store starting tomorrow.
The titles that will be available for purchase tomorrow include God Hand, GrimGrimoire, Maximo: Ghosts to Glory, Odin Sphere and Ring of Red. This effort is all part of their new “Only on PlayStation Network” program, which is clearly an attempt by Sony to revitalize their online marketplace in light of the major network outage that lost consumers’ trust several months ago.
If you are a PlayStation Plus member, there are some added incentives for you as well. Subscribers of this premium service will receive 20% off during the launch week for each game that launches through the “Only on PSN” program. Not only that, but if you shell out over $60 through your PSN wallet, you’ll get $10 worth of credit to November purchases, which can be applied to anything available for purchase on the Sony Entertainment Network.
In addition to the PS2 classics, don’t forget that Eufloria, Okabu, inFAMOUS: Festival of Blood and PixelJunk Sidescroller are all launching this month, and are also part of the program.
