PS2 games on PSN will not support Trophies and are not Remastered

Posted By | On 03rd, Oct. 2011

Today Sony announced its PSN program ‘Only on Playstation Network’, where you get to buy exclusive content from the network. They mentioned that some PS2 games will be available on PSN like GrimGrimoire and Odin Sphere.

We have come to know that these games will not support Trophies and are not Remastered. The information comes from a poster in Neogaf who revealed that, Sony just finished their Q&A testing in Liverpool few weeks ago, and this is what he posted.

  • No remastering, just smoothing/screen size options like PS1 emulation.
  • Not all games are supported, shadow of memories & Hitman 2 are examples of games that just didn’t work and they don’t plan to try and get them to work. They also seem to be covering a huge list of games even fairly unknown games like The Seed: warzone.
  • No button remapping options, like PS1 emulation, for now.
  • No trophies or anything along those lines.

Apart from that everything should be what people are expecting. There doesn’t seem to be any bells and whistles on it, it’s straight up PS2 emulation.

It is certainly interesting since the PS3 is not capable of PS2 emulation and does not feature any PS2 hardware within it like the 60GB PS3 did. We will update you once we get more information from Sony, but for now, we request you to take this information with a pinch of salt.

Stay tuned to GB for more info, and tell us what you feel in the comments section below.

Update: We have received an official confirmation from the PS Blog that this news is indeed true. This is what Morgan Haro had to say, “The PS2 games are in their original form. These aren’t remasters, and therefore won’t have Trophy support. But they retain their original gameplay, look, and charm through and through.”

The PS2 games on PSN will cost $9.99. So, there you go guys. Tell us what you think.
