PSX titles can be remastered too. People have done it to Final Fantasy 7 by hand.
SE already state is not gonna remake FF7 because it take "13 years to remake into ff13 graphic XD
Remake =/= remaster.
Remaster is just making textures better looking for higher resolution output, increasing performance, general tweaks to most of the visual quality/effects (ie in Shadow of Collossus much of the smoke in the background to help performance on the PS2 is no longer needed)
I think Square has something much larger up their sleeve. I have no doubt they'll eventually do a FF7 or even 8 remake possibly for both the PS3 and 360 if not the PS4 and the 3rd Xbox.

If they are not going to give use hardware/software abilities to play PS2 games then they should at least let us trade our old PS2 games for the digitally remastered ones. Maybe with a PS3 proof of purchase.
As the "article" states - for them to update every single nonBC PS3 with hardware required to do it would be very hard to. Unless they created some kind of external hardware pack and sold it at a profitable price, then it wouldn't be worth it.
Note that the PS3s with "software" BC isn't just all software. It's partial. They still have the PS2 hardware in them for the BC just minus the EE chip.
Judging by the way the GoW Collection turned out, I for one hope that this idea continues. The quality of the remasters that Santa Monica did for the 2 GoW games were FANTASTIC.
Prince of Persia they say is OK. It's nothing too great and doesnt compare too well with GoW.
I've read the worst one to date is the Medal of Honor bundled in the special edition of the Next-Gen Medal of Honor.
If they avoid the MoH quality, and do it more along the lines of GoW and PoP - I'd be willing to shell out $10 bucks for classics again. I much prefer doing this rather than Square Enix taking Final Fantasy 1, 2, 3, ect and making everything into chibi sprites and shelling out $30 for the game.Edited by OmegaNemesis28 - 1/7/11 at 9:16am
