    I think they may have gotten the name mixed up and mean the NGP, not the PSP.

    But it would be pretty nice if true since the PS2 has an extensive library of games.

    I can play Front Mission 4 and 5 again, hell since the rest of the core series are PS classics (I bought FM 1, 2, 3, and Alternative already), I'll be in line to have the entire core Front Mission series on my NGP. I want this.

    They said PSP. You can't wishfully interpret and then put it as the thread title.

    The article clearly says "PSP". Now that's weird, because the PSP isn't powerful enough to emulate PS2 games. They mention that only "ICO and MGS2 era games" get an re-release, so apparently these could run on the PSP. [​IMG]

    I thinks PS2 games won't get rereleased till the release of the NGP. It could be used as a trump card for the launch of the NGP

    I would agree that they probably meant the NGP, as the PSP isn't capable of handling the processing the PS2 had, even if the game was attempted to be ported using PSP-specific hardware.

    If it is the psp, then it'll be ports not emulation XD I'm agreeing they made a mistake and it's NGP instead

    I'd be more interested in all the Armored Cores and Gundam games on the NGP. I haven't really played a Front Mission game.

    I agree with OP. It will be NGP.
    There's no way they are porting games from PS2 to PSP.
    They tried to port SW battlefront 2 and it sucked (IMO), it felt empty.

    I expected this for NGP anyway. I can play KH1 and 2 and Chain of Memories [​IMG]
    Hope they don't cost more than £10 :s

    ;_; PS2 games on NGP was my only hope since when the PSP came out. I really want this to happen.

    I would care if they weren't already 100% playable on an actual PS2.

    Definitely, also wouldn't mind MGS2 on there and some of the less profitable PS2 games (like Ico, SotC, and Psychonauts).

    Really hope this is true, the PS2 kicked so much ass. Having some of its games on-the-go would be great.

    Do you guys remember the time when Sony was contracting people who understood about PS2 emulation? Maybe (I said MAYBE) this have to do with this...

    If NGP has PS2 emulation, it'll be insta-win.
