Is there any reason this isn't on PSN yet?

The first one is, and this game is insanely expensive to grab as a legit copy.

Nope. No good reason at all. I guess Konami is not interested in easy money.

Yeah, it sucks, one of the few PSOne games I'd fork up money for on PSN.

The only reasons I can possibly imagine would be licensing or royalties.

That said, we don't know how much Sony charges publishers for PSN listings. It's possible that Konami, in all their infinite wisdom, doesn't see the upside to it if that figure is too high. Especially if not enough people bought the original Suikoden when it went up on PSN.

...probably still more likely that we'll get Suikoden II eventually than any of the PS2 sequels.

I bet Konami can't find the fucking master copy. You can't just grab a consumer disc and dump it, you have to make sure it's the master.

On a slightly related note, I want to know why Final Fantasy V isn't compatible with Vita and yet VI, VII, VIII and IX are all fine! I've been dying to play V on the Vita so I can continue my marathon and right now I'm stuck playing it on my shitty PSP screen.
