They include the first game in the Legacy of Kain series, Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain, the second Syphon Filter game, Syphon Filter 2, and the survival horror classic, Silent Hill.
Sony has also added the HD remake of Turtles in Time, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time Re-Shelled, to the store this week, a month after the Xbox Live Arcade release.
