Next week, the roster of downloadable Rockstar titles in the PS2 Classics collection at PlayStation Store is set to get bigger - and grislier - with the addition of Rockstar North's dark stealth thriller Manhunt, originally released 10 years ago. Beginning on May 14th Tuesday when the PSN Store does its weekly update (Wednesday for those in Europe), you'll be able to step back into the shoes of James Earl Cash, a Death Row inmate playing that most dangerous game of kill-or-be-killed at the mercy of the maniacal Lionel Starkweather.

Manhunt will be available from PSN for $9.99 / 9.99 / 7.99 and joins Bully and Red Dead Revolver, as well as all PlayStation 2 entries in the Grand Theft Auto and Midnight Club franchises, in the PS2 Classics category of PlayStation Store.


The Warriors is also releasing for US store as it was released for Europe weeks ago.

What!?!? I'm freaked The Warriors isn't on Xbox's backward compatibly list. Well, I'm happy for PS3 users. I have The Warriors for the original Xbox. Just need to get me an old Xbox.

The Warriors coming to PSN soon also, Rockstar themselves said so on Facebook when they announced Manhunt was coming. EDIT: Wow i'm slow, completely missed the OP including The Warriors in his post.

LONG overdue. Now all we need on the PSN is Bully. (I don't think it's there already)

I wonder if Manhunt will be available to us since it was banned in 2004? I guess with the newly adopted R rating it shouldn't be a problem.

I'm not sure if i'll get this yet, my PS2 copy of the game still works and i still have the PS3 that plays PS2 games, i'll only ever get it from PSN if anything happens to my Manhunt disc.

I wouldn't be too surprised if there was a fresh wave of controversy after Manhunt is released on PSN, no doubt the game haters will come crawling out of the woodwork.

Will we ever see Manhunt 2 uncensored on PSN, i doubt it but hopefully one day we will see MH2 uncensored on PSN.

I have Manhunt AND The Warriors on PS2, unfortunately though the only PS2 i have is a dusty broken piece of sh*t sad.gif won't read disks, can barely even move the analogue stick its so clogged up with dust. Even if it did work however, the wires on PS2 controllers actually aren't long enough to reach to my sofa, haha.

It's fairly mild by today's standards.

How I envy you have the PS3 model that can play PS2 games. It's not only cheaper, but you can play lots of games that aren't even on PSS.

It's strange, i had the original PS3 model also (the one that is supposed to be backwards compatible.) It didn't play Manhunt, The Warriors OR GTA San Andreas.

Hopefully, and I mean really with the games dated graphics, why not?

I'm so glad we FINALLY have the R18+ Rating, but was disappointed with games so far.

Army of Two: Devil's Cartel,
I swear this was only given R18+ as they needed to start giving the rating to something.

Mortal Kombat 9,
I was disappointed this was banned and I consider it to be quite meh for the most part in gore at least, great game.

I thought that was only for retail sale, you sure it wouldn't be available via the PSN Store?

Yes. Its forbidden so SOny or MS wouldnt offer them in German Store, Marketplace.

Same was the case with Gears of War 1. I had to make an US account to download DLC. unfortunatelly they then even IP locked it so I couldnt even see videos on the store on the US account...


the funny thing is that Gears 3 and Judgment are available in germany uncut now...

pure logic

That's true the bloodiest most violent games that i have are Prototype 1 and 2 and Fallout 3 pick the bloody mess perk and occasionally the bad guy your shooting will explode in a fountain of blood.
Fallout 3 shotgun vs raider bloody mess perk

Your post made me go and check if my copy of Manhunt works on my older PS3, luckily for me it does, i must check the rest of my PS2 games.

That's really weird, literally the only games i wanted to work on my backward compatible PS3 was Manhunt, The Warriors and GTA SA. Was well pissed off when i found out none of them worked.

EDIT: I actually never found a PS2 game that worked on the backward compatible models of the PS3. I tried quite a few, not just R* titles either, nothing worked.

I had a 60GB PS3 but the cooling system inside it has 9 blades for the fan instead of 12 that the other models have, meaning that it would overheat constantly. For me, anytime you would play Grand Theft Auto IV it would turn off and beep three times (overheating) in the span of just about 5 minutes. Other games such as LittleBigPlanet or Fallout:New Vegas would last about 15 to 30 minutes before turning off. About ten minutes into any game I would play, the fan inside would kick up and sound like a jet taking off.

Soon enough the whole console got a YLOD and now I've got a 40GB PS3 thats extremely quiet when I play it. Not that I'm making much a sacrifice anyway, because I can just play all of my PS2 games lying within my cupboard by inserting the disc and playing them through an emulator with my PS3 controller connected through USB. Technology has really advanced, huh?

Wasn't there a firmware update that removed backwards compatability for PS2 games for all PS3's? i don't remember if there was or not, the only reason i can think of for my original PS3 still playing PS2 games is that i went and bought a new PS3 with a bigger hard drive (i was too lazy to install a bigger hard drive) and stopped using the old one which may be why the backwards compatability removal firmware was never loaded onto my old PS3.

List of backwards compatible PS1 and PS2 games
http://en.wikipedia....ayStation_games

What model is your PS3? is it a 40 80 or 160 GB model none of those play PS2 games the reason for that is due to the removal of "Graphics Synthesizer" GPU, which stripped the units of all PlayStation 2 based hardware, my original PS3 is a 60GB

Anyone seen the sale of GTA SA and VC on PSN? Very good price. I'm gonna buy it tomorrow for nostalgia and good memories. Anyone else buying it/them?

My original PS3 was 60 gigs (i think), there was a firmware update removing backwards compatible i think, i forgot about that, that might be why i couldn't get anything to work. For some reason i forgot about the update and just assumed the old school model was still backwards compatible to this day. I might not have had the internet at the time though, i'm not sure if i tried getting the games to work before or after i finally connected.

You must've had a different 60GB then because my old 60GB PS3 was updated to the latest firmware and could still play PS2 games. To my knowledge there are two 60GB's; one which has a separate chip on the motherboard that emulates the PS2 hardware and the other which has no chip and uses software emulation.

On the back of the PS3 should be letters and numbers, my old 60GB had CECH-03 and had card-readers on the front with a Chrome plate going above and along the disk-drive slot.
