???

I own a PS4 and Vita, and neither has PS2 Classics for sale on PSN. And last I checked, neither did the PS3 other than a small selection. I want to play them on a system I own. And have a full selection, particularly Shadow of the Colossus, which had been my dream to play on Vita since I bought it.

I think you're missing my point. That's a LONG post that you didn't need to make. .

I wasn't arguing "Oh, the PS3 doesn't have a good selection, prove me wrong". I don't care what's on PS3. It could have every single last PS2 game ever released, and it would still do me no good whatsoever. I own a PS4 and Vita. What good is the world's largest collection if it's not available on the consoles I own? My point was that I can't wait until I have access to purchase and play PS2 games on PSN, which at the present time I do not- neither on my handheld or my home console.

With that said, I hope they end up doing better than that list you posted up there.

Sorry JaxonH, I must have misread your earlier comments.

Why not just buy yourself a PS3 then? They're only $250 New now ($200 Used: Like New if you know where to look).
