Japan gets 25 new downloadable PS1 games

Japan is receiving a huge selection of PS1 games to download on the PLAYSTATION Store, starting 4/26. The following games will be playable both on PSP and PS3 systems equipped with firmware 1.7:
  • Spectral Force (Idea Factory)
  • R-Types (Irem)
  • A.IV. Evolution Global (Artdink)
  • Resident Evil Directors Edition (Capcom)
  • Bishibashi Special (Konami)
  • Arc the Land (Sony)
  • Ore no Shi wo Koete Yuke (Sony)
  • Gunners Heaven (Sony)
  • Ganbare Morikawa-kun Ni-go (Sony)
  • Marl Oukoku no Ningyou Hime (Nippon Ichi)
  • Tekken 2 (Bandai Namco)
But, that's not all.The Store will update with these additional titles, which will not be PS3-compatible (for reasons unknown):
  • Ikasama Mahjong (Idea Factory)
  • CG Mukashi Banashi Jiisan Ni-do Bikkuri (Idea Factory)
  • Yaku Tsu Noroi no Game (Idea Factory)
  • Lunatic Dawn III (Artdink)
  • A5: Take the A-Train 5 (Artdink)
  • Metal Slug X (SNK Playmore)
  • Real Bout Garou Densetsu (aka Real Bout Fatal Fury, SNK Playmore)
  • Kenkaku Ibunroku Yomigaerishi Soukou no Yaiba Samurai Spirits Shinshou (aka Samurai Showdown Warriors Rage, SNK Playmore)
  • Bakumatsu Roman: Gekka no Kenshi (aka The Last Blade, SNK Playmore)
  • Garou Densetsu Wild Ambition (aka Fatal Fury Wild Ambition, SNK Playmore)
  • Fushigi Keiji (Capcom)
  • Philsoma (Sony)
  • Jigsaw World (Nippon Ichi)
  • Wai Wai Tennis Plus (Hamster)
This is a significant update, far larger than any before it. Could this reflect upon a larger availability of PS1 titles in America as well? Update: It also appears that these games are now more expensive in Japan, going up from 500 to 600 yen. Could a price increase also hit the US? Let's hope not. [Source: IGN]
