PS3's most disappointing HD Collections

Sony's PS3 has seen its fair share of HD Collection releases over the past couple of years -- here's four that could have done with an extra coating of spit and polish. (Devil May Cry HD Collection, Hitman HD Trilogy, PS3, Silent Hill HD Collection, Splinter Cell Trilogy HD)

Ico/Shadow collection was awesome, MGS collection was awesome, sly collection....so many awesome collections....are you high?

The trend of remastering needs to slow down, I agree, but if the games were iconic then they need to be remade! :) This doesn't mean you need to buy them or call them disappointing.

I'm stilling waiting on shenmue HD collection:)

Jak & daxter is the best.

ummm no it wasn't lol....but that's my opinion. I could think of a handful of games that made a better impression on me:P lol

Funny thing is that Sony isn't just loosing curent gen exclusives, but with HD collection they also lost last gen exclusives.
Stupid move from Sony for allowing that, they literally put money in MS pockets.

Shadow of Colossus unfortunately suffered from some slowdowns.

How exactly are they losing on current gen? It takes no effort outsourcing the HD ports (which is most cases), Current Gen Exclusives are still thriving...we still don't have the last of us, Beyond two souls...GOd of war...I mean a lot of exclusives still coming on a console that's about to be replaced....let's not mention the already new exclusives on PS4.

Also, if you notice most HD collections that were once exclusive to SOny were't rereleased by sony but by the company that made the game...why do you guys talk out of your ass?

How is HD releases a creation of Sony? These have been around long before PS3 you know?

Also for shadow, I personally never experienced any slow down...even when remote playing on vita.

People talking out of their ass, is just shit talk:)

I dont think it should slow down.

I guess I only managed to buy the great ones; ICO/SotC, GoW, Sly, Ratchet and Clank, Jak, and MGS.

See. This is exactly why BACKWARDS COMPATABILITY is important!

The Splinter Cell Series is absolutely Amazing. For those games to suffer like that is ridiculous!
For people to repurchase The Splinter Cell Series after you Purchased them once is Robbery!

I can still play the Entire Series on my 360.
If they had a remake on the 360 I'd buy it for the Achievements alone as for the Halo Anniversary Edition Remake.

People can lie all they want but backwards compatibility is a benefit to those of us that have been gaming for a long time!

The Prince Of Persia collection is terrible too
Eyeco  +   816d ago
what was wrong with it ? The only HD collection I've bought is the GOW collection and that was excellent
Dark_Overlord  +   816d ago
Its mainly bugs and glitches (There's an abudance of them) the visuals are pretty bad too (other collections handled them far better), and with Ubi refusing to fix them its annoying. I brought the PoP Collection and Splinter Cell collection both at the same time, both by Ubi and both are broken. Though saying that, all the issues could probably be patched, but Ubi got their money and don't care anymore.
Welshy  +   816d ago
Terrible? Really? i thought Prince Of Persia brushed up and played great for it's age!

Not to mention the MGS and Ratchet collection were really well done. GOW HD was pretty good too.

I don't want a trend of any old franchise "remastering" all their games and reselling them to go too huge, but if the games are as big as God Of War, Metal Gear Solid etc, then i'm all for it!
Dark_Overlord  +   816d ago
Yes really, the games themselves are still great to this day. The HD collection however is a mess though, bugs and glitches galore, and the visuals are pretty bad (Could have upscaled them far better).
imtheman2013  +   816d ago
I don't think they were all terrible. The Sly Collection was pretty nice, save for having to exit the entire game to choose a different episode. By itself, Chaos Theory HD was fun. Same thing with Blood Money HD. But as a collection, they weren't really worth it. Better to just buy them separately off the PSN.

Also, The ICO/Shadow of The Colossus HD Collection was fantastic. Really improved both games visually, and technically.
Minato-Namikaze  +   816d ago
i can die a happy man if i can get a proper Onimusha HD collection, now that Kingdom Hearts is getting one. I'd perfer if they did all 4 games on 1 disc (1, 2, 3, DOD) but i'd settle for 1 and 2 then 3 and DOD
stuna1  +   816d ago
Onimusha is definitely a series that deserves a HD collection.
Minato-Namikaze  +   816d ago
I know, but i think capcom is having trouble with likeness licenses since they used real actors (Jean Reno, Takeshi Kaneshiro and Yusaku Matsuda) hopefully than can sort it out
kenshiro100  +   816d ago
^ This.

I loved the Onimusha series. I'll play 1 through 3 all over again. Including Dawn of Dreams.

The Silent Hill HD Collection was the first HD Collection I ever bought, and it almost put me off HD Collections for good. Not only was it not even a collection (2 games don't constitute a "collection" imo), but they were so heavily edited that they barely even resembled the original games. :(
rezzah  +   816d ago
That's the fault of the developers, or the control the publisher has over the devs.

There are HD collections out there that are better than the originals.

Of them all I think SH suffered the biggest changes, in a negative way.
jc48573  +   816d ago
the producer finally left konami. I think that's a good thing.
jetlian  +   816d ago
splinter cell was cool even more so in 3d.DMC games just arent as good as they were years ago
Minato-Namikaze  +   816d ago
Still having more fun with them than DmC though. Especially 3. Probably my favorite in the series
HarryMasonHerpderp  +   816d ago
Why did you f*** up the Silent Hill collection Konami!? why!!!! :(
itsralf  +   816d ago
Jak & Daxter collection r00lz
Roccetarius  +   816d ago
The DMC HD Collection was good, but not the best of the bunch surely. It definitely needed more polish.
-GametimeUK-  +   816d ago
I am disappointed that the MGS collection had features cut. It is understandable and that is why I still purchased it and supported it, but I would really have liked to try MGO.
lashes2ashes  +   816d ago
Even if they wanted it in the game there is no chance. It's been shut down for years.

Socom HD with online play
