ICO and Shadow of the Colossus Collection

It looks as if the HD version of ICO and Shadow of the Colossus now has a firm release date of September 27. Hard to believe that I preordered this last November during Thanksgiving shopping season.

What do I get for the long delay? According to the official’ish Sony blog, a couple of free themes.

As if that wasn’t enough reason to pick up this collection in September, I’m happy to announce that the disc will also come with some amazing bonus content. Packed in every new copy of the game will be a voucher for two XMB Dynamic Themes, one for ICO and one for Shadow of the Colossus. In addition, on the disc itself will be a ton of exclusive video content from ICO, Shadow of the Colossus, and The Last Guardian that fans won’t want to miss. We’re busy finalizing the videos as we speak, and will have more details to share next month.

I am sure the videos are going to be interesting, but pre-order specials should include some nice, even if minor, trinkets. At any rate, I am looking forward to play ICO in HD. This was one of the many games that I missed the first time around, and have always been curious about the implementation; mostly because of the rabid, if niche following.

  1. does anyone know if shadow of the colossus and ico are going to be 2 SEPERATE DISCS or are they going to cram them all onto the single blue ray. if its going to be crammed how would you do the time trials after u beat SoTC? thats been bugging the hell outta me because i hated ico but i loved SoTC.

  2. I would hazard a guess that the two games will be included on a single Blu-ray, which would be what was done for the Sly Cooper HD release (three games). Each “game” will be treated as a separate individual game, just like they were when they were originally released on the PS2. Including multiple games on a single Blu-ray will not impact the actual gameplay.
