PS3 HD Collections …

So far I have really enjoyed The Sly Collection; currently in the swamp on Sly Cooper and the Thievius Racoonus. Getting past Muggshot to continue the game and earn the Silver “Giving The Dog A Bone” Trophy had to be one of the most frustrating gaming experience I can recall. Or maybe I am just getting too damn old for platforming games.

At any rate, I have to decide it I am going to double dip on the God of War Origins Collection which feature the two best games on the PSP – Chains of Olympus and Ghost of Sparta. Seeing these two titles in HD, with the added bonus of Trophies, may tempt me … maybe. If you have a PSP and you have never played these titles, for shame!

Rounding out the collection list is the Ico and Shadow of Colossus Collection; the official’ish Sony Blog just released some of the bonus content (videos and two dynamic themes) along with the Trophy list. I have had this on one pre-order since Thanksgiving weekend last year, so I am really looking forward to seeing this one arrive in late September.

While it is not a PS2 HD re-release collection, I thought I would add in one random PlayStation LifeStyle link. Pretty good article and strong reader comments on what XSeed will do with the PSP Ledgend of Heroes series. Me? At this point I am firmly committed to not purchase any more UMDs, although my 9 year-old a PSP … he is not into RPGs, much less JRPGs so I will probably miss out unless these somehow port to the PS3 or get a Vita release.

  1. To be honest, I have never been a proper fan of Splinter Cell; not sure that I will give this one a go, but thanks for pointing out that I missed one of the HD bundles.

    What do you think of this strategy? Remove PS2 backwards compatibility, and then update some of the older classics (better graphics and Trophy support) and re-release to cash in while the cashing in is good.

  2. well – i originaly had a BWC ps3 – till ylod killed her. and to be honest i played a ps2 game for about 5 minutes. could not stand how the graphics looked on hdtv. and GOW2 was actually the game i tried to play. so i was glad to see the HD collection released. BUT i did originally write something in my original comment i decided to erase. basicly saying what you did. I mentioned the HD collections, and pre/orders for digital games and asked if maybe sony was hurting for money
