    Yeah...except...Sony owns very few of the games he listed. I personally think a PSN version of Fantavision would be neat.

    This wasn't a list Sony made, some random person created the list, that's why they aren't all owned by Sony.

    You said he, so if you did realize this, then yeah the only one I think Sony owns is Ratchet and Clank

    They should just port the Metal Gear Solid Essentials (which was released for the PS2 and MGS1, 2, and 3) for starters and include Metal Gear Online with that.

    Jak 1, 2, and 3 of course. All are some of the best PS2 games.

    But yeah, this is a great idea. The games are cheap to make (since it's just porting and maybe upping the graphics a bit), are cheap prices (usually $30 at launch), and are a major bargain. More companies need to do this (although you usually can't fit most game collections onto DVDs).

    I still can't figure out why they took out PS2 backwards compatability. At least with the lack of a rumble pack they learned their lesson. Where's my PS2 compatability upgrade, Sony? That's your most dense move since the PSP Go.

    ps2 compat was removed because of manufacturing costs
    the emotion engine and gs2 chip arnt cheap, they got rid of the emotion engine but the gs2 chip remained still costing them alot of money for every system made

    the rumble was because of a lawsuit with the maker of it, they couldnt iron it out in time and thus we got the sixaxis
    they finally settled on a money agreement and it came out in time for mgs4 and now we have the dualshock 3 + sixaxis in one controller

    maybe it would be successful (profit wise) to redo famous games but more sensible to redo good but unpopular games (ppl get an idea of how great it was)
