With no announcement and no fanfare, Konami Europe have begun slipping brand new copies of some of the company's finest PS2 games back onto shelves in the United Kingdom

"We've manufactured certain amounts depending on the title," a Konami spokesperson has told Eurogamer, "and they're being bought by wholesalers so will likely pop up in independent rather than chain stores."

The games currently available are:

Suikoden Tactics
Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner
Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance
Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater


While Silent Hill 2, 3 & 4 will be released soon. As they're old titles, Konami have even priced them accordingly, offering them for between ÂŁ10 and ÂŁ20 (USD$16-$33).

Bravo, Konami! May this serve as a shining example to publishers everywhere.
