Namco Bandai Digging Into The Archives For Re-ReleasesS

Got an interesting press release today from Namco Bandai. It goes a little something like this.

"Leading video games developer and publisher NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc., announced today their intent to increase its digital distribution presence."

Boring so far, right? It is! Thing is, it gets better, the company pledging to spend 2010 plumbing the depth's of their back catalogue and releasing them on the 360, PS3 and PSP.

It'll begin with Beautiful Katamari appearing on the 360's Games on Demand service in "Q1 2010", but more encouragingly, will continue with a range of PlayStation One "catalogue classics" throughout the year.

The PSN needs a lot more quality PS1 games. It's nice seeing at least one publisher publicly committing to release more games on it.
