Onimusha Essentials Collects the First Three Games for Your PS2

Taking a cue from the Metal Gear Solid folks, Capcom has decided to re-issue the first three Onimusha games together in one package. The “Onimusha Essentials” pack will bundle the three games together for the budget price of $30. All three were great games — though the first couple might be a little dated by today’s standards — but if you want to see essentially the precursor to God of War, then here it is. Now we just need publishers to make this even easier on us and start issuing them for the next-gen consoles, preferably as a download.

Or Sony could just release the PS3 firmware that will allow PS2 backward compatibility……I mean come on….we aren’t stupid….we all know they have the firmware but for some reason have not made it available yet……bastards.

My understanding is that the PS3 can’t emulate PS2 games because of hardware issues. It really wouldn’t make any sense for them to be holding out on a reason for PS2 owners to step up for fear of losing their current library.

Unless they are wanting to release rewritten versions for download, but there are no PS2 games available as of yet. Odd.
