Glory HDays: HD collections Sony must release before the PS3′s end

"Perhaps no better deal currently exists in gaming than Sony's HD collections. In the aftermath of the announcement about the God of War Saga HD and inFAMOUS collections being released this August 28th and the promise of more HD collections coming this Fall, we review what titles need to be released by the company in the PS3's last year as Sony's flagship console. With the impending arrival of next-generation consoles, what better way to commiserate than to celebrate?" (Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain, dark cloud, Final Fantasy X, Final Fantasy X-2, Final Fantasy XII, Next-Gen, PS3, Star Wars Battlefront, Star Wars Battlefront II, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, TimeSplitters)

LoK and Star Wars would be day 1 purchases for me if these panned out. A guy can hope.

I would love to see KOTOR in hd. I was so disappointed when they announced the MMO instead of a third KOTOR.

I want a Wild ARMs Collection.But since I'm the only person alive that remembers those games it's never gonna happen.

Not at all. Awesome RPGs that deserve a collection. They're like Dark Cloud - really good games that never sold as well as they should have.

No, many people remember those games.

The problem with HD Collections replacing B/C is that they'll -never- begin to approach even 1% of the fantastic PS2 games that need to be playable for posterity.

With JRPGs alone, we've got....

Wild Arms 3
Wild Arms 4
Wild Arms 5
Wild Arms ACF
.hack series
.hack/G.U. trilogy
Final Fantasy XII
Xenosaga 1, 2 and 3
All the Megaten and Persona games
Steambot Chronicle
Rogue Galaxy
Dragon Quest 7 and 8
Suikoden 5

...And that's just the top of the the pile. Expand to other genres--to games like Ace Combat, Legacy of Kain, Fatal Frame...

Jesus ****ing Christ the list goes on and on. When Sony got rid of b/c, they screwed EVERYONE over and unless they actually start trying to repair the damage with HD ports and PS2 classics (which up till now they've treated as an afterthought at best)....

Just Jesus ****ing Christ.

Where's my Kingdom Hearts Collection?
showtimefolks  +   1060d ago
Legacy of Kane series
GTA trilogy and psp titles
Kingdoms hearts all the games
And few others because everything else already has a hd collection

Some under rated games on os2 deserve hd collection but most likely wont get

Kingdom Hearts
Darck Cloud
Battlefront
FFX is already confirmed, but besides those that's all I need.

So is that to say that you wouldn't buy these HD collections if they were on the PS4, instead?

Also, keep in mind that "Sony" can really only release the games they have publishing rights to. If they don't posses those rights, they can't release the corresponding HD collection. The Final Fantasies, for example, are up to Square; SQUARE must release them, not Sony.

Just saying.

Right, which is why the article mentions Square Enix is already developing the HD remake of Final Fantasy X. Sony should work with SE to make it happen. Stranger things have happened.

Also - a PS4 collection would be great, but that's not an ideal situation. Releasing them on the PS4 would mean paying more for the collection and longer waits while development teams configure the games to the new console.

well, it could always happen that the PS4 will be backwards compatible. Like they did with the PS3 initially in Japan.
GhostHero333  +   1060d ago
If they did the Star Wars Battlefront series with good online (including HD remakes of the psp games too), that would make me finally go out and get a Playstation 3.
Rhezin  +   1060d ago
why are we talking about ps3 end already. It's AT LEAST two years away from now.
