Screenshots and comparison between the original PS2 game and how it looks on the PS4.
Sony: Backwards Compatibility is pointless, nobody wants to play old games. Also Sony: Re-re-release of Shadow of the Colossus!!!
This is a remake.
Plus probably new additions to the game and bosses. SotC remake won E3 2017 alone. Everybody else, sit down.
Looks mad. Can't wait
Well they aren't wrong, I don't want to play the old clunky PS2 version. It was a phenomenal game and I would like to replay it, but I won't because the nostalgia glasses just don't hold it up once you start playing. A remake with modern graphics and controls is an entirely different story.
100% agree on controls. I have tried to get in on this one but the controls simply break the immersion every time. If they update not just the look, but the feel and the control, 1000% in.
I'm honestly getting sick of all the remakes. I want new games, not this stuff.
You should tell that to Phil Spencer 😁
Maybe if people didn't ignore ps3 they wouldn't remake a remake. Many people who own a ps4 didn't own a ps3 for whatever strange reason that may be.
So you missed the rest of the conference? Did you not see they did announce to new games Or did you just decided ignore it?
Good thing Sony releases notable games every month. Not to mention all the other new games that get released week to week.
Stop buying them then.
Good thing there's been tons of new games released on ps4 so far this year with even more to come
its a remake, not a remaster.
@kayos There wasn't much to see there. The game releases for the rest of the year are rather disappointing. @Forn Could you name those games? @KickSpin What the hell has that got to do with my comment? I'm not buying them, which still doesn't change the fact that the teams and time could've been used developing a new ip instead.
Here you go. Over 44 games (more than what MS announced at E3 this year) not on XBox. Notice I stopped at June for the PS4 games... Just waaay too many to list honestly.

it's a remake.
Yea DIVAjones Along side Spideman,DaysGone,TLOU2,GTSpo rt,God OF War and more to come Sure yes you're right lol.
Backwards Compatibility refers to playing older games on current systems. SotC PS4 will be a completely remade game.
This is a REMAKE you dumby not a re-re-release.
Still celebrating the return of an old game
It's a remake and it's no different then movies getting rereleased on new formats all the time hell I just bought heat for the second time on blu ray alone but nice try trolling fanboy.
Id rather play remakes than bc frankly. Graphics dont age well pre-hd.
Sony was probably trying to figure out a way to make back the money lost on The Last Guardians 9 year devolpement time and decided to make them remake the same game for the third time (original, HD Remake, PS4 remake) so they could pump it out as fast as possible and try to make some money back
Haters who doesn't even bother watching or reading: I hate everything so I will spread false information based on my own assumptions that are based on nothing at all. (specifically on SOTC PS4)
Looking better than anything Scorpio has so far
Remake. I would not play an old, ugly looking game again (I know, SotC is awesome game, but we have 2017 ffs), remake, on the other hand, I'm going to buy day one.
I like the original, it was very ambitious and then the HD remaster addressed some of the originals issues and was very well done. I'll still get this version but it is rather telling how Sony downplayed older games only to release a remake. I guess we can look forward to a remake (or remaster) of last guardian on the PS5 / PS5 Ultra....?
It's pretty close to a new game with new art assets and graphical effects. But w/e, at least they aren't re-releasing the same game and shoving micro-transactions in it.
Why release a free game with optional microtransactions when you can re-re-release the same game at full price?
@ gangsta red "Why release a game with optional microtransactions when you can re-release the same game at full price?" That's actually a good question that you can actually ask Microsoft!Because besides re-releasing a game that they'll take $10 off at most, they'll also add a generous slathering of microtransactions in it to boot! So in all actuality gamers end up paying 2 to 3 times more for the game itself.
@Stuna What game are we even talking about? And why should I ask MS when they are giving the option with most past games available to be played for free with BC if you own it?
@Gangsta Are you saying you wouldn't prefer a proper remake of the original Phantom Dust rather than the lazy port with added micro-transactions that they finally released?
Im happy for it too I want the best possible quality and looks for my favorite games just like I do my movies which is why I buy the same ones over and over and over again
Cough cough Master chief collection Cough phantom cough dust cough
As someone who didn't play the old one, i'm excited for this!!
I believe it's offered on PSNow, if you have a paid subscription for that service you can check it out there.
So, in the next PS Now story, will you praise the service?
I've always praised PSNow.... ------- http://n4g.com/news/1771993... I disagree, I think PSNow has the makings to be THE killer app for PS4. PS has some of the best games in the last two generations. Imagine having that whole catalog available at a reasonable price. Imagine if Sony had a price structure similar to Netflix's streaming service. They need to have a 6 month to a year price structure for unlimited streaming of every game at a decent price. Then they need to push the service and bring it to the forefront of the consoles UI. Get the word out there and tell everyone the benefits of having not only PS4 games to play but a huge back catalog of great games from PS1, PS2 and PS3 games. "Its very unlikely that consumers without a PlayStation console will have a DualShock 3 or 4 lying around and would be willing to continue paying the subscription cost." How hard is it for a consumer to pick up a controller? They purchased a TV they could easily buy a controller. Or maybe Sony can offer some kind of deal where a controller comes with every TV that has their service. AGREE 2 DISAGREE 2 ------- I'm shocked you missed that and many other comments from me IvanSF, praising the PSNow service.
I loved PSnow, and the price is what's keeping me away. Being able to access it on different devices and PC is key. I would sign up for game pass yet no xboxone ATM
No thanks, i'll wait for the remake.
Me too, looking forward to it.
"This remake is using new assets and graphics engine although Sony is still labeling it as a remaster just like Crash Bandicoot Trilogy. The development of the game is being handled by Bluepoint Games who are well known for remastering games. They also worked on the ICO and Shadow of the Colossus HD remaster for PS3" It'll be interesting if they add anything new, like more monsters or anything else besides better visuals.
Man you got hit with a lot of down votes for quoting the article. Either that or wanting additional content. Facts and options must be frown on I guess.
Yeah I realized who it was afterwards so I quickly understood after I posted nevertheless I see nothing wrong with the quote. But I get the down votes now.
Exactly who am I? Lol, dont fall for the traps here.
Remake is also make the gameplay even better. Tell me this, why Microsoft canceled Phantom Dust remake ? It would be so much better than remastered version.
Why are you asking me why MS cancelled the remake of Phantom? And what does that have to do with me wondering if the people doing this game will add more monsters or anything else. We have other remakes like FF 7 that are actually changing a lot of the design and chore mechanics from the original game as well as visuals. Is this doing the same?
You two make your statement very poorly. That's why you two get downvote. Like Crash Bandicoot remake have been improve a lot from original game. That's call remake.
His comment was phrased appropriately. Shadow of the Colossus is being remade, and asking if there will be extra content in the game is an apt question. There shouldn't be anything wrong with it.
This looked fantastic. I still kinda like the old ps2 art style though.
Ueda-San stated he may go back to open wored style . Maybe Sony wants the remake out before his new game. Either way I am happy with the remake even though I thought it looked amazing on PS2 the controls could use slight tweaking
The fur on the first colossi looked awesome.
Didn't see that one coming at all. Here's hoping Ico will get the same treatment.
How many systems can Sony release the same game for. Lets see... a 1, a 2 uh.. a 3!!! I hope I never hear again how Nintendo is all about remakes from Sony's fan base of zealots. They could re-release Punky Skunk and you guys would literally piss yourselves.
I dont think it will surpass Skyrim in rereleases. :)
Well you got me there. :)
Nice, why not?
Never finished this, now's my chance. And HD-ified to boot! I'm in. Got through 1 and a half Colossi and didn't pick it up again. For whatever reason...
Wasn't there supposed to be like 32 colossi or something like that?
No. The finished product always had those 16 iconic colossi, don't know why it should change with the remake. They can't simply add further colossi to the game, it would destroy the authenticity of the original. Graphical and technical overhauls are the only thing they can do ...
I went back and did some research, there were 48 colossi originally planed for the game. Later on in production that number quickly went down to 24.. Due to limitations of the hardware, the developers could only fit 16.... The world was actually supposed to be larger too.. By that point they were arleady squeezing every ounce out of the ps2 though.. Would be nice to see a proper sequel with 48 colossi
Yes, would be nice to see a sequel to the game, but knowing the developer, they'll probably end up doing new stuff ...
I'm very excited for this, but I probably wont pay full price (i.e. 60$) for this unless I see a lot of extra content. Sony typically has pretty good price structures for games like this though. Ratchet and Clank was only 40$ I believe, I'm thinking the same for this.
