Lets get this out of the way first. Sony was the first company to allow their previous games to be downloaded however those were small PS1 games.
Microsoft upped the bar recently when they started letting people download original Xbox titles through their Live service and now it appears that Sony is planning on doing the same thing.
This is being reported on all around the Internet at the moment but the part that people seem to be missing is when the Director of PSN, Eric Lempet, was asked about it he didn’t say it was coming. He said
We haven’t talked about that yet, but there are possibilities through technology and software emulation to make that possible
So will we see downloadable PS2 games in the near future (this year)? I doubt it, will it arrive some time in the future, I can’t see how they won’t do it.
