has announced that two Oddworld titles will be hitting the PSone Classics section on PSN this week, as follows:
Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee and Oddworld: Abe's Exodus PSone Classics are both available on the PlayStation Store for only $9.99 each starting Thursday, October 22.
It was only about six years ago that I told our agent at the time, "Larry, don't you get it!? Our classic Abe games are history. The systems that played them are gone and they aren't coming back.
Ours is a disposable medium and we don't have a Turner Classics channel." He looked at me with this defeated expression and said, "Dude, that's the most depressing thing I've ever heard you say." He believed me, and I too believed it at the time.
Six years later and I have to admit it's great being proved wrong.
We couldn't have been more thrilled when we learned that the PlayStation Network was willing to offer our classic Abe games to an entirely new generation of gamers. Finally, gamers who never got the chance to meet and play him when he first came out on the PSone system, will now get that chance to meet the guy who graced many magazine covers and proved the unlikely hero that captured people's hearts.
