awww yiss don't care whatever price I would happily buy this again, loved this game.
Interesting fact: the first Ape Escape game was the first game to use twin analog sticks.
Fantastic game, sadly the franchise went down hill after this title, would love to see this revived as rebooted IP, nothing more satisfying as catching crazy ass monkeys

I wish they would just put the first one up. Medievil 2 would also be nice.

I remember renting the first game back in the day and being confused as hell because I had never touched the analog sticks for any game before it.

A Timesplitters HD trilogy would be most welcome.
This would of been much better if it was free for PSN+ Not the rubbish they are giving us this month

Still remember to this day begging my old man to rent this from Blockbuster's as a kid then being told I couldn't play it due to the 'dual shock' controller requirement. Although thinking back was it the analog controller or dual shock one you needed to play or both? I only had the digital one at the time.

Sounds good! Never played this one, liked the original back in the day.

​It was actually the first Playstation game that required analog sticks, not the first to use them.
Cheap disposable nostalgia for roughly 10 minutes. NOT worth the £6 being asked.

Yeah i feel the same of this for most of 30 yrs of milked IP's from Nintendo.
Don't usually comment on here but I absolutely love this series! I personally think all three games still hold up, definitely going to buy this, thanks op!

Damn, I'm a PC gamer but games like this, Wipeout and God of War really make me miss the PlayStation PS2 was my childhood (yes, I'm still young, but my point still stands )
That's not a bad price compared to most old games on PSN, especially as I think this is a bit rare on PS2 nowadays. Shame they ended the series with a rubbish PS move game

​I enjoyed it more as it handled, looked and played better. Probably aged better too! I like the first PS1 game too though, great use of analogue sticks
It's strange... I bought this today due to this deal and I'm loving it more than most ps3 games and ps4 games I've played in the last year.

Huh? Nintendo's IP's may reside under the same name, but that's where the similarity ends. Have either Sony or Microsoft ever innovated in ways like (for example) SMW>M64 (Mario) or Ocarina>Majoras Mask (Zelda) or SM>MP (Metroid)...

If so I'd like proof.

Ssx3 is on PS store?!?

no.
I will never buy any of these ps2 games on ps4 until they offer cross buy with ps3. not offering backward compatibility is one thing but no cross buy which they could have easily done as they could have checked your account to verify if you own it is another and just plain greedy and sleazy.

PS2 games don't run on PS3 in the first place, so surely cross-buy isn't relevant? Are you thinking of PS1 games released as PSone Classics?
