Sony has yet to capitalize on releasing a swarm of budget PsOne games over the Playstation Store outside of Japan. There are plenty of first party games they could release like Intelligent Qube and other installments in the Twisted Metal series. Also there’s space for obscure classics like Einhander. People would buy Einhander for $5 or even $10!
