Rare and Popular PS2 Games are Coming to PSN

And of course, a few that are neither rare nor popular.

One of the biggest downsides to current PS3 consoles is that they lack the backwards compatibility of the first models. If you want to play PS2 games, you still need a PS2. Thankfully, Sony is willing to help out with that - at least a little bit.

The company has announced that a good chunk of rare and popular PS2 games will be coming to the PlayStation Network. They'll be rolling out this month and will include titles like the incredibly cool 'Odin Sphere,' as well as 'God Hand,' 'Maximo: Ghosts or Glory' and 'Ring of Red' will be available on October 4th.

The program is being called "Only on PSN" and it brings new PS2 games every Tuesday, along with Move games and indie games. The promotion is U.S. only, but Sony says European customers will still have access to the content in time.
