    I think the Playstation blog says Arc the Lad iii comes out tomorrow. Can someone verify?

    Ahhh I was wondering when they would get around to Xenogears, it seemed pretty inevitable after FF9 came out.

    I saw Saiyuki at an E3 years ago and wanted to pick it up, but never got around to it. It may not be the greatest game ever but I still want to give it a shot. Same goes for Threads of Fate, it's like the only PS1 Squaresoft game I never touched.

    Hooray! I'll be able to finally play through all of Xenogears now! For whatever reason my copy locks up during a boss battle on disc 1 and I've never seen what happens after that point.

    I've always wanted to play this game too, but the somewhat inflated prices on the various market sites for a copy have dissuaded me from doing so. Now if only Suikoden II would be put on the PSN...

    Yes! Threads of Fate. I had a demo(really fun) but I never managed to get my hands on a copy of the full game so I guess I can now sooner or later...

    Saiyuki is quite a fun game, glad to see it's being released on there.

    Are you by chance playing it on a PS2 or PS3? There are some issues with Xenogears if you have certain rendering options turned on. If not, well, you get to play it now! Yay!

    Happened on two different PSones and two PS2s with the filtering turned off and the disc speed set to normal. Unfortunately, I've lost my save file somewhere along the line. Oh well. I'm really looking forward to being able to carry it around with me on my PSP!

    Yay! Threads of Fate. Personal opinion here, but one of the best action RPGs for the PSX if not THE best.
    My original copy is still covered in stickers from a particularly obnoxious phase I went through when I first got it (stickers, stickers on everything!).

    ATL3 was an inevitability, what with ATL 1 and 2 already out on PSN. The other games are a nice, pleasant surprise. Especially Threads of Fate, more people should play it.

    You know the PSN's gotten big when PSX shovelware's hitting the list.

    Just kidding. All you Harvest Moon fans can put down your pitchforks and shovels, no need to kill me.

    Seriously, nice to see the store selection diversifying. Always a good thing, says I.

    "Finally" is all I have to say. Putting Xenogears on the PSN is just a good idea, kind of like putting Earthbound on VC.

    Totally Agree with you Bleu. I'm tres excited about getting my hands on Xeno in handheld. That's too good to pass up.

    I hope the new generation of graphic *****s can see past the pixellation of the sprites in Xenogears.

    Also nice to see Saiyuki gettin' some love. Too few people got to enjoy that one back when it was new.

    I recently purchased Suikoden on the PSN and enjoyed it, and I heard a lot about Suikoden II and how great it is, so why its taking them too long to put it on the PSN, it's been a while since they released Suikoden so its only natural that people would like to play the second one so comeon already..

    Awesomes, I'll finally get to give Saiyuki a go. I saw it when I went on a PSX binge at various GameStops when they were trying to sell all of their PSX inventory. I ended up with a couple dozen games including all but Saiyuki and ATL3. How's the ATL series? I'm thinking about trying it out once my funds have been restored after bills/ rent.
