PS4 version please.
abzdine  +   530d ago
must buy!!
KH2 and Birth by Sleep? damnnn.. but please announce a PS4/Vita version by then
FamilyGuy  +   530d ago
LOL @ munny, I was waiting on this one, hopefully it doesn't take a really long time to release.
I wonder if this is a sign that 1.5 HD Remix sold pretty well?

Speaking of PS4, an update on KH3 progress would be nice too.
Eonjay  +   530d ago
I'm sold. Please take my Munny!

Been debating getting BBS for my PSP for a while now.

Looks like I'll be holding off until this releases.

I really really really hope there is PS3 support for the PS4.

I can't afford to get both, and the PS3 is just insane with all the good RPG's being released lately on it.
WildArmed  +   530d ago
BBS is the KH that got me into KH.
It's def. one of the best games I've played.
neoMAXMLC  +   530d ago

What do you mean by PS3 support? If you mean backwards compatibility so PS3 games can play on the PS4 then, sorry to say, it won't have it.

You're best bet is to hope that you can stream the game through Gaikai when it launches for the PS4.
vishmarx  +   530d ago
lol ive played both of em atleast thrice
Rumor  +   530d ago
Regarding bbs.... I think you need to play that at least thrice. If you mean three times each character then holy sh*t you're good
vishmarx  +   530d ago
regular edition once
FM twice.
so yeah...

You really thought KH3 will be coming next year? If it was, they would have said 2014 in the announcement trailer.
Deadpoolio  +   530d ago
You really actually think KH3 is seriously coming out anytime soon...You'll be lucky if it's out by 2015/2016
iWishTifaWasReal  +   530d ago
in 2014, we pretty much have a PS4 by then.

i dont see buying another ps3 game.

I'll be really surprised if we dont get a ps4/vita versions.
showtimefolks  +   530d ago
yeh we are so stupid that we will be 2 HD collections to get the complete series and spend $80 or get Fallout 4 which will be 60 and be better

SE i greedy that's why they needed 2 HD collection and charge full price twice, i will get both HD collections down the road when i can get both for $15-20
supersonicjerry  +   530d ago
I didn't care so much for the first yeah I wanted it but didn't have the money at the time so I said forget it I will just wait and first day for sure get 2.5 because i knew they would do it. I loved number two so much and I never got the chance to play birth by sleep so I am glad I waited even tho I will own a ps4 by the time this comes out >.<
showtimefolks  +   530d ago

wait a bit, you will be able to get both for around 20ish


sorry was reading another articles about fallout 4 and i accidentally typed something about fallout 4 lol
Omegabalmung  +   530d ago
wth does fallout have to do with Kingdom Hearts.
Starbucks_Fan  +   530d ago
Where the f*** did Fallout come from?!
Magicite  +   530d ago
Fallout better than Kingdom Hearts? In which broken reality or dimension do You live, mate?
GraveLord  +   530d ago
What does Fallout have to do with Kingdom Hearts?
SugarSoSweet  +   530d ago
I played this game nearly 10 years ago I dnt see what's so exciting about a HD remake
BlueTemplar  +   530d ago
Some of us didnt?
vork77  +   530d ago
an hd remake is pretty much KH 2 final mix it has more keyblades and bosses
UtilityWorks  +   530d ago
Tell that to people who bought LoZ: WW HD (they enjoyed it)

This is for people starging or getting back into Kingdom Hearts. Remember, Kingdom Hearts 3 was confirmed and probably coming out in late 2015.

Get hyped.
miyamoto  +   529d ago
Sony is taking us back to the roots of console gaming again.
AusRogo  +   530d ago
Well im glad they did a collection because KH was one of the only series I never played on ps2..
clouds5  +   530d ago
Well if you talk about PS2 games, you could just play them with an emulator in 1080p. You kinda get the HD remake that way. I played the whole KH series this way.
Heisenburger  +   530d ago
So.... you stole them?

clouds5  +   530d ago
I bought the ps2 games (own the system) but played them on pc later when emulation was pretty much flawless. The other titles? Im not prepared to buy 4 different system just to play one series. Thats a fail on their side imho...
infinitewords  +   530d ago
Yes!!!!!!!! Love me some Kingdom Hearts.
thelaughingwiseman  +   530d ago
These damned HD releases better be handled by some other developer...I want a new game and not some detour hand handle device game! *keeps scratching neck to qualm desire*
Inception  +   530d ago
Err, did you see KH III trailer for PS4 & X1 on E3?

And this HD release is for people who never play the series, for people who wants to play it again but their copies already lost (that's me), and to build the momentum for KH III.
Crossbones  +   530d ago
So Predictable
Deadpoolio  +   530d ago
Yes how strange that they would want to sell more copies of KH3 and know that they best way to do so is to release HD versions of the first 2 final mix versions of the game with all the others included as a bonus just to catch people up....Or people who don't cry about HD collections
monkey602  +   530d ago
At least I can catch up to KH 3 then.
M-M  +   530d ago
I don't know why people are complaining, these remasters are made so people can catch up on the story line(it has been a while so a lot of people are lost), and for people to experience it with completely new orchestrated audio tracks and HD gameplay. By the time I pick this up, I can probably get 1.5 HD Remix for about $20, and spend about $40 on 2.5 totaling $60.
-Foxtrot  +   530d ago
Probbly because it dosent include Dream Drop Distance...something apparently esstential for KH3 story.

Pass from me if it wont even let you catch up properly
KingKelloggTheWH  +   530d ago
Thats what bothers me too....DDD NEEDED to be in this
rezzah  +   530d ago
i guess there is always Youtube.

that's how I "played" DDD.
WeAreLegion  +   530d ago
Sweet! I never got to play through Birth By Sleep!
Gemmol  +   530d ago
I will get this wen both hd remix drop price
Shinox  +   530d ago

Fxxk Nintendo and Square Enix for this

I agree that it should have been included, that game pretty much leads right into Kingdom Hearts 3.
SonyNGP  +   530d ago
Go get a 3DS if you wanna play it.
chrispseuphoria  +   530d ago
KH Dream Drop Distance HD could come as they want to bring KH3 players up to speed.
staticdash22  +   530d ago
I just heard that new Kingdom Hearts 3 footage was shown at the D23 japan expo. Tetsuya Nomura did a conversation with creators with playstation, and dropped some new footage.

Now, we wait for the inevitable youtube upload, someone will lmao.
izumo_lee  +   530d ago
Birth by Sleep was bad ass! One of the best games on the PSP. Now to be able to play it on the big screen on HD & with 2 sticks will be a treat.

Best memory of KH2 was finally beating Sephiroth! Every time he did that move to drain you of Hp/Mp down to 1 always left me panicking to heal myself. When i finally beat him it felt like the greatest satisfaction in the world! Great game!

mt  +   530d ago
well I'll wait for KH the 1.5 + 2.5 all in one HD collection edition.
tubers  +   530d ago
I wish These KH Collections would come to the VITA.

Oh well.
MultiConsoleGamer  +   530d ago

"Coming to PS3."

Oh come on! Why not PS4?!
izumo_lee  +   530d ago
Probably cause of the 70+ million PS3's out there compared to maybe 5 million PS4's when this is released.

Though hopefully through Gaikai we may play these games on PS4 one day.
MultiConsoleGamer  +   530d ago
Yeah, I know you're obviously right. This is the same logic behind releasing GTA V for current gen consoles. I'm just disappointed because I'm sick of this gen and I'm eager to make the transition to new hardware.
Ripjaws  +   530d ago
I love this game I can't wait! PS4 Here I come!

Official Fanpage: https://www.facebook.com/Ki...

Let's show them we want more KH games!
KingKelloggTheWH  +   530d ago
This set really should have had DDD..

Still getting it though.
TheGrimReaper0011  +   530d ago
KH2 final mix
Kingdom Hearts 2 final mix
Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep final mix
Kingdom Hearts coded cutscenes
I fucking called that!
Happy to be confirmed, i never got to play Birth by sleep
Was afraid birth by sleep might be cutscenes only, but that wouldnt make sense
noctis_lumia  +   530d ago
birth by sleep is awesome got it on psp the best KH portable
Cryptcuzz  +   530d ago
Bith by Sleep is such a good game.

I played it a few hours in and stopped playing it since it was around the time I got my PS Vita.

I was waiting on being able to play PSP games on the Vita, but sadly that did not come true.

Now that this collection would be released on the PS3, I will buy this collection and finish that game once a for all!

I can't wait, BBS is a good addition to the Kingdom Hearts series with cool main characters.
ZHZ90  +   530d ago
Looking forward to KH 2.5 and KH3. :)
noctis_lumia  +   530d ago
cool no xbox version also for this one
and i wonder why they release the 3 on it lol xbox fans wont understand a thing not to mention it wont sell a thing on that console
mkis007  +   530d ago
im agreeing with the "not understanding" part of your comment. I think it is rather weird that they wont be releasing these on xbox360 though. 3 will sell nothing on the x1. But, the rpg doesnt exactly have a good history on xbox consoles unless it is named fable.
noctis_lumia  +   530d ago
the first remix is good and i bought the limited edition that box was to awesome to pass buy i hope they do same thing for 2.5
GenericNameHere  +   530d ago
I'm such a hypocrite. I just said said something bad about Square Enix yesterday, but hhhhhnnnnnnggggghhhh this is just too much to get mad at. I've Platinum'd KHFM a few days ago, and I can't wait to Plat this too.

And lol at Xbone people going to get KHIII. They're gonna get so mindf*cked if they've never followed the franchise before. Especially with how crucial BBS is into the story. Terra-Xehanort, Ventus, Young Xehanort, the Organization, etc. You know the in-game backstory notes and stuff are barely gonna be able to describe these events without also making you scratch your head.
DigitalRaptor  +   530d ago
They still have issues, but Square Enix seem to be getting back on their feet again. They completely re-built FFXIV Online to fix its problems, and gave people a free update for it, as well as a free update to PS4 if you have the PS3 version. FF Versus is finally coming out, as well as Kingdom Hearts III. These KH Collections. FFX/X-2 HD Collection. They're giving fans what they want, at least.

That's a good point about the Xbox fanbase. They may do a re-cap movie option, but that would be huge.
miyamoto  +   529d ago
Don't you worry Squaresoft (back when they were great) made KH on PS2 not Screwenix...
fabod86  +   530d ago
Now i can cry... YES!!! *_*
SoulSercher620  +   530d ago
Shut up and take my munny!!!
LAWSON72  +   530d ago
Coded is bad they should of included 3d
GirlOnFire  +   530d ago
My heart is ready! ^~^
DEATHxTHExKIDx  +   530d ago
Maybe they will make KH:3D a download. either way very excited for this one.
no_more_heroes  +   530d ago
Yep, I just died...
Butters360  +   530d ago
Super stoked for this! It still makes no sense why Kingdom Hearts III is not a PS4 exclusive. Unless Xbox One owners possess a PS3, they're gonna be lost in the sauce big time.
