Rumor: Sony seeking suggestions for more remastered PS2 ports on the PS3?

Sony apparently sent out a survey containing a question that asked fans to suggest a Playstation 2 series that should be remastered (similar to God of War Collection) on the Playstation 3.

Sigh2730d ago

oh my god please do Sony. There are so many past titles that the mass wants to play again on ps3.

riddlesticks2730d ago

I was thinking about this, then I realised the main thing that makes a game memorable is the experience playing it at the time. I honestly don't think there would be that many games that would make the leap to HD and still be considered quality. For example, I was thinking that I would really love to play Timesplitters 2 again, but then when i think about it.. What really made that a good game? The story telling? The graphics? I suppose it was a bit of both but give me Killzone 2 any day over Timesplitters 2. That doesn't mean that when I was playing I didn't have more fun playing Timesplitters 2 because in fact i did have more fun with it. What i'm saying is I don't think I would really enjoy the game that much if it was brought out again... However I would agree with what someone said below about adding backwards compatibility. That really would be a much better move but I suppose that isn't a great business idea for sony who want to make money.
Anyway.. give me timesplitters 4 anyday over a remade 'splitters 2 haha.

Shadow of colossus / Ico / mgs3 / Okami / Okami /Okami / Okami / Okami / Okami

NeoBasch2730d ago (Edited 2730d ago )

I remember taking a survey asking about this not long ago. They specifically asked about Shadow of the Colossus and Ico. At least I think they did. I can almost swear I took a survey on it maybe a month ago.

Anyways, I answered yes to a remastered version in high definition, of course. :D

yess2730d ago

I would love to see Freedom Fighters and Dropship contiuned.

execution172730d ago

OKAMI!!!!, sucks i can't even find it for the Wii :(

Cheeseknight282730d ago

Art Collection: Ico + Shadow of the Colossus + Okami
Metal Gear Collection: MGS + MGS2 + MGS3 (Though this has been done, sadly)
Jak Collection: Jak & Daxter + Jak 2 + Jak 3 (If they announce Jak 4 this is a given...)

Wouldn't mind seeing a Ratchet collection but the games are fairly similar so I may as well boot up Tools or Crack.

ReservoirDog3162730d ago (Edited 2730d ago )

If anyone has any suggestions, it's kinda useless posting them on n4g. Instead, why don't you try:

You have a better chance of being heard by sony there rather than here.

morganfell2730d ago (Edited 2730d ago )

MGS, MGS2, and MGS3 have not been given hi res remaster for the PS3.

a_squirrel2730d ago

mgs remastered :)
resident evil?
killzone 1?
theres sooo many.....

NeoBasch2730d ago

The Silent Hill collection sounds delicious. Do it, Konami!

SaiyanFury2729d ago

I got the survey in my email tonight. I said the Ratchet & Clank series, Jak & Daxter series, as well as the PS2 Tenchu games. I should've also suggested the MGS games. They're legendary games as well.

Palodios2729d ago

A Squaresoft/Enix box set would be nice. Any combination of Chrono Cross, Valkyrie Profile, Xenogears,FFT, Einhander, BFM...

weazel2729d ago

Clover collection please mr 'n mrs Sony.

Parapraxis2729d ago

@SaiyanFury ,
got it as well.
suggested : Jak games, R&C games and Shadow of Collosus & ICO.
I also said I'd love to see some FF collections, but it's a long shot.

sonicsidewinder2729d ago

Timesplitters 2 was god, and it damn deserves a HD reincarnation. Crytek own Free Radical now so they probs got other ideas. Hell, i'm waiting for Timesplitters 4!

Noctis Aftermath2730d ago

Final Fantasy X + Final Fantasy XII collection.

Only put X-2 on the disc if it can fit but still keep the price at $40.

truehunter2730d ago

Noctis Aftermath, BD has 25GB Single Layer. Avg PS2 games are well 3.5GB, times 3 = 10.5GB. With add of improve to 720p or even 1080p is enought. if you ask me they can at less put well over 9 Titles in Dual layer.
Just to make it clear. FF1 to 12 can be all in one disc. Tho iono about FF11, sence there could be so much update with alot of data.

X-Frame2730d ago

If they could put FF1-FFXII on 1 dual-layer Blu-Ray that would be one hell of a collection.

SaiyanFury2729d ago

Personally, I didn't care for FFX. FF11 was online only so I never played it. FFX-2 was merely an extention of FFX so I doubt I'd care for it. FF12 might be cool in HD, I loved Fran's high heels animation (I'm a sucker for women in high heels). Seeing 12 in HD would be cool.

RedDevils2729d ago (Edited 2729d ago )

that funny I like ffx way more than 12, cause 12 was so boring imo even for 2 buck I wouldn't buy it I would probably throw it to the dog hahaaha

Meryl2729d ago

lol i put that idea on ps blog but i think someone already posted it, I would buy it in a heartbeat if it came out it would nice to relive the days where FF was a masterpiece

With an all areas accessible mode where all maps are on one giant map and you just fly to Vice City or Liberty City or San Andreas at any time. Completely open, so when you are playing with Tommy Versetti and you aren't doing missions, you can fly over to San Fiero and do whatever.

Also Liberty and Vice City Stories are on the disk with a new San Andreas stories.

I know that this isn't a Sony franchise and they would really have no say in this, but it would be cool none the less!

tinybigman2730d ago

along with the dark cloud, R&C, J&D, and Kingdom Hearts

gamelova2730d ago

Dark Cloud/Dark Cloud 2 to support the release of Dark Cloud 3. Please God!!!

3nd3rth32730d ago

Also, I'm fairly certain this has to be Sony IP only. A lot of people here seem to be throwing in names like Kingdom Hearts, MSGS, etc... Those won't happen unless the studios that made the game put out the remastered version.

Dark Cloud series on the other hand, more than well deserved of a remastering.

sikbeta2730d ago (Edited 2730d ago )

You need to do it SONY!!!

I want:

TEAM ICO Collection HD
JAK Collection HD
Ratchet Collection HD
MGS2+MGS3 Collection HD
RE Collection HD just Port and put REø + REmake + RE2 + RE3 + RE4 in One BRD...
And more...

Cenobia2730d ago

Team Ico, Legacy of Kain, and Mark of Kri would be great collections

akiraburn2730d ago

Awesome. This would be great news. And on that note, every one of the replies here has hit a key game or game series that really deserves a revamping. With all that they did to the GoW collection, if that same amount of quality enhancement and added content is provided, I feel that definitely makes it worth purchasing. And there are a LOT of games I would love to see handled this way, and would definitely warrant a $40 purchase for me. My favorites and definite interests for remakes would probably be:

Metal Gear Solid series
Ico / Shadow of the Colossus
Yakuza 1 / Yakuza 2
Resident Evil 4 / Resident Evil: Code Veronica
Dark Cloud / Dark Cloud 2
Final Fantasy X / Final Fantasy XII
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City / San Andreas
Jak and Daxter series
Ratchet and Clank series
Sly Cooper series
Kingdom Hearts series
Zone of Enders 1 / Zone of Enders 2
Onimusha series
Hitman series
Okami

Reibooi2730d ago

Persona 3 and 4 would be awesome.

But if this is only Sony owned IP's that's not gonna happen.

A Xenosaga collection would be awesome. Those games(Episode 3 in particular) would look really good remastered and being able to play them all on one disc would be awesome.

I would basically like to see any good series on PS3 get that treatment.

MGS 2-3, The whole Onimusha series, the whole DMC series, Silent Hill 2 and 3(add for if ya want but I wouldn't miss it). Zone of the Enders 1 and 2.

Alot more but yeah to many to list.

Spydr072730d ago

Persona would be awesome. Persona 4 should have been HD to begin with, if you ask me. Lazy Atlus.

At you below me, cgoodno, would love to see Parasite Eve redone. Tho I wasn't too fond of the sequel. Something about the atmosphere of it turned me off a bit.

Personally, I would want Valkyrie Profile 1 and 2. VP 2 had some crazy puzzles in the Seraphic Gate. Some of them took me hours to figure out.

I think FF as a whole is overrated (sorry people). Every FF (7+) game had something in it I hated in the end. Seven was too slow and I hated the choco sidequest to get KotR. Eight...enemy levels were based on yours so you could beat the game and run from every random encounter. Nine the main characters were like fifteen years old. Yup, babies save the world! And Ozma gets the vote for the stupidest optional boss ever (a round globe, really?) Ten had the 'capture every fiend' quest for the optional dungeon. Eleven had grinding, storyline crap that required alliances, etc. Twelve had a horrible story, too many items had low drop rates, etc. It just sucked. And XIII, well, let's kill stupid turtles for as long as it took to beat the main game for what? Oh, yeah, to fight the hardest monster in the game. ANOTHER TURTLE (Long Gui). Retarded.

Sorry. /endrant on why FF should not be remade.

Christopher2730d ago (Edited 2730d ago )

The obvious ones:
- MGS 1-3
- ICO + Shadow of the Colossus
- GTA (all)

Personal Favorites:
- Parasite Eve 1 & 2
- Okami
- Silent Hill 1 & 2
- Resident Evil 4
- Persona 3FES & 4
- Kingdom Hearts

Reibooi2729d ago

I would LOVE to see Parasite Eve 1 and 2 but considering they are PS1 games they would need a hell of a lot more then a simple remastering. They would need to be redone with a new engine or something. A remastering would make them look worse if anything as it would bring out the weakness of the game engine from back then.

RedDevils2729d ago

what with listing random games, you need to know remaster is only possibly be done by Sony own ip not konami square capcom

Microsoft Xbox 3602730d ago

Socom 2 HD running on PSN please. I'd pay 200 bucks for that remake.

Remmulak2730d ago

I have heard great things of Shadow of colossu and Ico. Would love to play them on the PS3 in HD.

It would be a day one purchase for me.

BattleAxe2730d ago

I did the survey tonight and I suggested that they bring out MGS2 and MGS3 out as a remastered collectors edition. I know this is a long shot, but I also suggested that they make a remastered collectors edition for SOCOM 1,2,3 and Combined Assault. Could you imagine if they combined all the Socom maps and intergrated them with the PSN? That would be the best thing since sliced bread.

MEsoJD2730d ago

Since it was basically only a japanese release, theres alote of

content English speaking players have missed out on.

ThanatosDMC2730d ago (Edited 2730d ago )

Just make the cell be able to play PS2 games on all our PS3s. I dont have BC anymore sadly. They can even let the PS3s copy the whole PS2 disk on the HDD and play it from there. I dont mind if it's 4gb-8gb big.

NeutralGamer2729d ago (Edited 2729d ago )

Give me Metal Gear Solid 3, Shadow of the Collosus or Final Fantasy X in 720p remastered and I'll buy a PS3!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ! !!!!!!!!!!

asyouburn2729d ago

if they put out atari collection on ps3, i'll buy one! /s

morkendo2729d ago (Edited 2729d ago )

all ps2 games remastered as blu-ray games on ps3
seem like they started off with super street fighter iv now raystorm HD ps3

Denethor_II2729d ago

THE METAL GEAR COLLECTION.

Bravo42729d ago

Yakuza Collection
ICO Collection (High possibility of happening)
MGS Collection
Final Fantasy Collection
Kingdom Hearts Collection
Resident Evil Collection
GTA Collection
Tales of- Collection

DatNJDom812729d ago (Edited 2729d ago )

Shadow of the Colossus/Ico, MGS2/3 (even MGS if it can be done), Killzone, RE4, FFX,FFXII and I'll be good. Oh wait no I wont. PS2 had SOOO MANY great games! I honestly couldn't even begin cause I know I'm missing more.....

Pretty sure that hasn't been confirmed.

It'd be awesome, but its just a rumor.

DeltaZ3R052730d ago

yes !! and Resident Evil 4 or MGS 1,2,3.

DaTruth2730d ago (Edited 2730d ago )

Just finished replaying MGS2(should have replayed it before playing MGS4). That game is a pretty good alternative to current gen and wouldn't need much work.

My PS3 just died, so I broke out the PS2 and have been playing a few old PS2 games. Weird that my 9 yr old PS2 is still functioning when my PS3 is dead, but my PS2 was in the shop a few times itself!

Both have thousands of hours of operating time on them, so I'm not really mad!

Sevir042730d ago

The Onimusha Series 1-4 all on Bluray with 1080p 60fps.
I would soo love to play through onimusha 3 and 4 they were impressively well made games on the PS2.

Cajun Chicken2730d ago

I want HD Ratchet and Jak quadrilogies. Ratchet more so though, it would also be great for those who only jumped into Ratchet on PS3 too, High Impact Games could probably do a really good port.

beavis4play2730d ago

except i'd want the J&D series more.

Cajun Chicken2730d ago

Call me odd, but I'd just like to see the whole R&C series on PS3 and play the online modes of both R&C3 and Gladiator.

And yeah, obviously I want Jak. But on my EU PS3, both Jak 2 and 3, X work perfectly, the Ratchets on the other hand, just don't work, terrible buggy framerates.

tunaks12730d ago

Am i the only one that is against re-doing these games?
Why not leave them as testimonials to how awesome they were in their times?

Its kinda like updating the Special fx in the original star wars movies. Sure it looks better but why are we going back and covering up the masterpieces that were achieved?

ClownBelt2730d ago

Cause not all of us played it? Cause the prices of some of the old titles spikes like crazy in price? Cause people want to experience it again with added bonus?

tunaks12730d ago

"Cause the prices of some of the old titles spikes like crazy in price"
I dunno about you but I saw Shadow of the colossus and GOW 2 for 18 at gamestop. I just feel playing the game at its original state is more authentic.

riddlesticks2730d ago

It probably says something about me but I started playing FFVII recently and couldn't keep on playing cos really... it looked awful compared to what I've been used to lately. I know gameplay > graphics but theres only so much I can take. Especially on my 42" tv. So I guess in that sense re-doing the game wouldnt be too bad.

Cenobia2730d ago

ICO is incredibly rare, so I think that is what Clown is talking about.

Also, the PS2s weren't known for lasting very long. I'm sure the slims are fine, but I don't think most people are gonna downgrade if they have a non PS2 compatible PS3.

gamingisnotacrime2730d ago

FF7 is not a remake, is just a PS 1 game made available on PSN, and playing it on the PSP is the better way to enjoy it because on the big tv looks awful and depressing.
GoW Collection proved me that some great titles can be even better at locked 60 fps and HD glory, that remake was brilliant.
ICO and SotC should work perfectly, just like MGS series. Many PS2 owners missed ICO and SotC, and Ico current price is unacceptable (although i got it for $8 at gamestop last year but i just saw it at $80, lol). i will support this remake collection as long as they are priced at $40 (more than one game on a sweet bluray with extra content) and the games are true classics. this is way better than having a BC PS3, because even with the upscaling GoW series on PS2 still dont look near as good as the GoW collection

riddlesticks2730d ago

Yeah I know it wasn't a remake. I was responding to "tunaks1" who said he was against remakes and would prefer just to leave them as they originally were "as testimonials to how awesome they were in their times". I was pointing out just how bad they look today... but thanks for the tip. I might just start playing it again. Pfft at the very least it would give me an excuse to wipe the dust of my PSP.

ReservoirDog3162730d ago

It also gives more incentive for Sony to start up the series again. Say they do a Jak and Daxter collection and it sells pretty good. They might consider a Jak 4 (I honestly wouldn't want that since the story ended in 3 and it could possibly feel tacked on but I digress).

Remmulak2730d ago

I disagree. If you could play the games on an HDTV looking exactly how it did when you could play it when it was released I might agree. I try playing the game now on my HDTV and it looks soooo bad, I can't play them.
