48w ago - MonkeyPaw Games Marketing Manager Ray Almeda has announced that PSOne classic Tomba is pouncing on PSN today with details below.
To quote: While MonkeyPaw Games continues to deliver import experiences from Japan, we also have plenty of classic PlayStation titles in our library to satisfy nostalgic needs of even the most dedicated PlayStation fan.
This coming Tuesday, June 19th, we'll be releasing the platforming-adventure classic Tomba! on the PSN.
It will mark the first time that our pink-haired hero will be available digitally. It will be available for exclusive download in the PSOne Classics section.
Created by Tokuro Fujiwara, the same mastermind that brought us the memorable Ghosts & Goblins and Mega Man, the fresh mix of platforming and sub-quest based adventures make Tomba! one of the most ingenious and versatile PlayStation titles in the Store.
The story follows Tomba, a wild jungle boy who needs to get his lucky golden bracelet back from demon pigs that have overrun his land. He'll be using numerous weapons such as boomerangs and a large mace to overthrow a wide range of foes from evil pigs, spiders and large forest creatures.
80w ago - Just over a month ago we reported on PlayStation (PSX / PSOne) Games working on PS3 3.55 CFW, and today PlayStation 3 developer CrashSerious has released a homebrew application called One which allows users to run PSX game discs on PS3 3.55 or 3.41 MFW Modified Firmware.
234w ago - Sony's director of hardware marketing, John Koller, has stated that they working on further PSOne additions to the US PlayStation Store and they should be arriving shortly.
To quote: There are many classic PS One games available to download through PlayStation Network in Japan, but we've seen barely any here in the United States (does anyone want to play "2 Xtreme," anyway?)
I didn't ask John Koller, the head of hardware marketing at Sony Computer Entertainment America, whether this was changing when we spoke earlier this week. My bad, readers.
But he did follow-up over e-mail last night.
"Yes, we are working on further PSone additions to the PS Store and should see those launch shortly," he said.
