Huh, that's really odd.


There was an official PSP port/remake, and the PSN version is probably a download of that.

Don't know why the original version isn't on PSOne classics, after all, UmJammer Lammy is there...


I saw this myself last night. I assumed it was because they can charge more for the psp version.

I played PaRappa the Rappa on that demo disc when I first got my playstation, but I was always awful. Maybe it's time to give this game another shot.

Same here, I remember playing it on a demo disc at my cousin's house when we were kids and i sucked so much at the game, but now I really wanna get it and be a part of the Together Retro club!

yeah I'm kind of bummed. I was looking forward to revisiting this game for $6 when I thought it was on PSN as a PSOne Classic, but eh, not really into the idea of paying the $25+ it usually goes for to get a physical copy on PS1.

I feel like my inputs are just a bit off from the beat and rhythm. If I wait just a fraction of a second after, it tends to work right, but if I do it right on it seems to miss.

I completed this game a loooong time ago and both it and its sequel had the same issue. It takes some time to get use to that, but I love the game none the less.

The rhythm in Parappa is a little off. It takes a while to get used to it

I'm having the same issue. The game doesn't like to make clear what "rappin' good" actually constitutes. I'll give it another bash or too though. The music is really catchy.

Same here man. I'm really debating if I want to buy it at that price. If it were say, $15, I'd go for it.

What's funny (maybe obnoxious would be more accurate) is a hard copy of the psp version is very affordable on ebay. Its cheaper than the psn version at under 10 bucks.

I played the heck out of the demo of this game back in the day but never got the full version until about a year ago. It's been sitting on my shelf since I got it and this seems as good of an excuse as any to play it.
