SEGA have unearthed a confidential document that listed Sony’s plans to bring the entire backcatalogue of PS2 games to the PSN to download, along with the possibility of also allowing Dreamcast titles.

The marketing document, dated from August 2009, was uploaded to a SEGA PR FTP folder, but is subsequently unavailable. It stated that Sony America “wants to sell all PS2 titles on PSN (GTA Vice City/Sonic/etc).” It also goes on to reveal that Sony wishes to sell the new PS Motion controller in Japan next spring, with a forecast of selling 4 – 5 million units in an unspecified time.

If this turns out to be true, then it is indeed exciting news, but at the moment it remains unclear as to whether or not this is a concrete announcement or a throwaway suggestion from a corporate meeting.

  1. So they remove backwards compatibility from the PS3, only to bring the titles to the PSN for download? Sounds like they’re trying to milk money from consumers who already have titles, which is a poor business practice. At least The 360 is backwards compatible with some Xbox games, if not all.

  2. Dreamcast emulation…………………. SO AWESOME IF POSSIBLE!

    Yes, this will make them a ton of cash. Look how many people are buying the WII retro games. Sure it might piss a few people off, but if you have the titles then you have the console to play them on anyway. So no need to purchase the emulator right…… :P
