    Classic Midway games to hit the PS Network

    Sony Online Entertainment has recently announced that it has licensed rights from Midway Home Entertainment Inc, to develop and release six classic Midway games via download through the PlayStation Network. SOE adds that the first game should be available early 2007.

    The six titles are: Mortal Kombat II, Gauntlet II, Joust, Rampage World Tour, Rampart, and Championship Sprint. SOE claims that each title was chosen for its multiplayer capability - a move that is obviously an attempt to boost traffic in the PlayStation Network.
    Steve Allison, chief marketing officer of Midway had this to say:


    We knew these titles would be a perfect fit for the PlayStation Network, and based on Sony Online Entertainment’s legacy in the online space as well as their intimate knowledge of the PlayStation Network, it was an obvious decision they would be a top company to work with to bring this project to fruition.

    Its about time, is all I got to say. Now if some of the other old time publishers would do the same we'd be set. Like Sega.

    Wha!?!
    Doesn't XBLA have this game...and online enabled as well... on you know on XBLA???

    Your gamertag is totally throwing me off.

    I wonder how it's priced because so far Sony has done very good impulse range prices.

    Just dont mess up with the Euro conversion's...
    Big Boss Emblem FTW!

    That would be pure genius if Sony managed to get Sega to re-release some of their classic games on PSN. Streets of Rage would be so awesome.

    That's just plain ignorance,









    Because we all know Streets of Rage 2 was the best one.

    Wow. Not bad at all. I'll definately pick up MK II... and Rampart!

    I just don't care about really old games, unless they are Streets of Rage, and Sonic. I'm sure they will come to the PS3 sooner or later as Sega sees what the PSN offers.
    I'm tired of the Killzone 2 hate. Attacking the game and calling it mediocre because it doesn't do anything different is absolutely ridiculous, because games like Call of Duty 4, Halo 3, Gears of War and many others are given free passes to high scores and critical praise from everyone despite the FACT that they do nothing different either. Killzone 2 should not be thrown to the curb.

    I agree with you, part 2 was the best. I enjoyed each of them, though.

    Didn't Nintendo get the rights to get Sonic on the Wii? Will that stop PSN from getting some of the Sega classics?
