More PS2 Compilations?

by deaditeash Tue Apr 28, 2009 1:56 pm

I have not jumped over to the next gen systems yet and don't know that I plan to but have been pleased with all the late compilations coming out on PS2. What I always wonder is why Capcom hasn't released more fighter comp's such as vs marvel/x-men stuff or even a MVC2 re-issue on disc...the digital download is great for PS3 owners but how about a greatest hits version for PS2 since they're doing the work to port the Dreamcast version already anyways!

The only compilation I really wish the PS2 had was Sonic Gems for GameCube.
I'm still not sure whether I'm a kid or a squid now.

Hmm... I've never really liked the compilation games. It's not as satisfying to me as getting the original copies.

Someone should just bring The Last Blade 1&2 to the West. I ask no more.

Sonic Gems Collection was a Cube exclusive in North America only. If you have a way of booting imports, you can import the PAL version from Europe or the NTSC-J version from Japan. I would recommend the Japanese version, since the menus are already in English and you won't have to worry about converting a PAL signal.

I hear you on that (I'm the same way with music), but they gaming comps can provide a great way to get stuff that's pretty damn hard to get. Capcom and Taito arcade comps, SNK comps come to mind. I can't drop the coin on Neo Geo stuff.
