Anyone playing this off of PSN yet? Run like the original disc-based version? I'm pretty ready to buy it but there seems to be some sentiment that Ring of Red doesn't run quite right, so I'm sort of curious to hear if this runs just like the original first.
It run a heck lot smoother! Must buy!

I'll vouche for that, it does run a bit smoother. This is one thing I've been happy with the PS2 Classics. Snce each has to have a customized emulator designed just for it (as opposed to PSOne Classics which all use the same one) , they can optimize them. Odin Sphere was nigh unplayable on PS2 due to slowdown. Said slowdown is all but gone in the PS2 Classics version.

What I don't understand, and don't like, is why they didn't make use of the virtual memory card system they had in place -- instead deciding to use an entire 16MB on two virtual memory cards in a different format, for each PS2 classics game.
It's not like the 16MB is the problem, as wasteful as it is... but it makes backing up saves a pain, as well as downloading or sharing them -- all the previously uploaded PS2 saves on GameFAQs are incompatible, for instance.
Though thinking about it, that was probably their motivation.
Except the new system is worse, and not really new. It's just two preallocated virtual memory cards. For each user, for each game. How often do you actually use a full two memory cards for a single game, all by yourself?
