Love it or hate it, Twitter is pretty useful to keep up with things.  Konami fans and Suikoden fans have something to be happy about. While it might not have been an announcement, it is encouraging to know that some companies ARE listening. Below is Konami’s twitter page where they let us know they are in fact listening to us.


A physical copy of Suikoden 1  can be purchased new for around $90.00. But on PlayStation Network, it can be purchased for $5.99. Now, all I am saying is that Konami is suggesting we buy it digitally and thus save us a crap load of money. What do we have to lose? While we are talking about the series, try buying Suikoden 2  we won’t even discuss the over $100.00 price tag on it.

Is this game so expensive since it kicks ass, or what? Let me know in the comments, you know I love hearing from you!!


About Crystal Colwell

What's up everyone? Crystal here! I spend my time writing up the news for you all and keeping us all up to date with incoming game info from Japan. I do a little bit of everything else around here, too. 🙂 Happy Reading!

    If Konami was really listening we would have another Metroidvania instead of the crappy Lords of Shadow series we have now.

  • If Konami was really listening I wouldn’t still be waiting for a Skullgirls patch. 

    • Konami is only the publisher of Skullgirls. It’s not their fault that the indie team that developed the game can’t produce one in a timely fashion.

    Wish we could have the newest Suikoden on PSP. And VI. That would be stellar.

  • In spite of Konami’s current direction with the Castlevania series, I have to say they are one of the few Japanese developers/publishers that don’t make me scratch my head in confusion. They’ve been doing pretty good for a long time, and it’s nice to see them paying some attention to fans for their RPG series. I’m really looking forward to Metal Gear Rising, myself.

  • How ’bout releasing a decent Silent Hill game, for starters? Now THIS would be nice…

  • i havent played it, but just because it has a high price tag might not mean its good NOW. i mean from what i hear it ages well, but another high cost RPG on the PS1, Dragon Quest 7 has a high price tag and it doesnt age well at all (of course the 3DS remake looks like its fixing a lot of the PS1 version’s problems). i think it might be deserving of a high, but much lower than 1K price tag if that is what its really going for online

    I re-played through Suikoden II around three years ago, and I think it still holds up as possibly the best RPG on the PS1.

    The only reason I can figure why they wouldn’t release it for the PSN is because the English version is a mess.  The translation is terrible; there are a few random NPCs whose dialog wasn’t even translated.  The game is also filled with glitches, including several places where music doesn’t play at all and a few well-known crashes.  Honestly, it’d be a little embarrassing to release it on the PSN without any modifications… but if any classic game desperately deserves a re-translation, it’s Suikoden II.

    I have all the suikoden games on disc and still play them but we need a new one and for consoles not handheld so if you really do listen give the fans what they want and make a new one there is a huge fanbase so you know you guys will make money and profit from it please make another

  • I think by “we are listening” and then bringing up Suikoden I on PSN, they are trying to get the hint out to “fans” that Konami “listening” really means “if you people back up your words with cash, then we’ll talk more about Suikoden”

  • While they’re listening, let me shout: BUSOU SHINKI!

  • If Konami were listening, the Silent Hill HD Collection would have been worth more than a dime.

  • If you’re listening, get us a real castlevania!

  • Suikoden has an interesting overlaying plot that translates throughout each game. And each game has an incredible impacting story with plot twists, fun characters, and fantastic villains I own all of the physical copies still, but I’d buy it on psn [and will] for the pricetag they give. Suikoden I is worth $5.99. Suikoden II I would snatch in a heartbeat when they put it on psn. If they do. Please do ;[
