Theres been rumors about the Team Ico Collection and Sony Comments on the Issue, "We don’t comment on rumors or speculation, yadda yadda yadda. You know the drill by now :-) But it WOULD be cool!"
blah blah blah same typical response. Still Sony should consider it in case many gamers wonder how Last Guardian might turn out.I don't care for Team Ico though.A Level 5 Collection(Rogue Galaxy,DQ8,Dark Cloud 2) would on the other hand get my attention.
Why not both?
After reading all the comments, I can't help but notice all the M$ fanboys hating and getn their pennies all up in the bunch.
1) Not everyone bought those games when they released. I never bought GOW1/2, I was happy to get the GOW Collection. I hope they announce an ICO collection at E3. 2) Some people want to play their games in a higher resolution. It's always nice to have your game in the best quality possible. 3) Some people want their favorites on a scratch resistant Blu-ray Disc.
Typic Sony fanboy comment: "We dont need backwards compatibility" And yet you wanna buy every PS2 games Sony republish as a collection... I mean yeah 720p rescaled is cool, but would be so much better with normal backwards compatibility.... Some of the worlds best games came out on PS2 and I dont even need to name them... Would be epic if PS3 could play them...
My PS3 is playing them pretty easily. Oh... you mean you didn't get a launch PS3? You thought it was too expensive and not worth it? Oh ok. I get it now. You should have just said so from the beginning instead of stealth trolling.
Yeah, I got a launch PS3, so I can still throw in some of the old classics now and then. Not that I really do. But SOTC is one that I regularly revisit. It's still beautiful. Not gonna lie - an update to HD would be awesome. A trilogy pack would be sweet when TLG releases: Ico, Shadow, and Last Guardian all in one set... BRB, need to change my underwear.
There always the audience for Trophy collectors
I use backwards compatibility daily, and from what I've seen, GOWcollectionHD is much better than the original on the ps3.
Well that's all well and good, but I was one of the people who bought a 60GB model early in the PS3's lifespan, only to have it YLOD on me a few months. I fixed it the other day, but it still does wonky things and I'm nervous to use it for more than an hour at a time. I *did* buy another PS3 -- a slim 120gb model -- but I really wish I could use BC on my CURRENT model, considering my old model did it. I've already give Sony my money TWICE, so *I* would at least like a little BC love myself. Until that happens, however, I am content with replaying my favorite classics in HD, so long as they offer compelling content to accompany themselves. The GoW collection is nice because not only is there upscaled, smoothed-out imagery, but there's also trophies to earn; something that didn't come with the original games.
"No comment" is "no reponse". This is not news.
Spelling fail :P
A classic sony response LOL. Which basically means its true.
I'm an idiot... cause I'm buying this when they make it ;)
I hope you are right. It seems like a smart thing to do. So few played ICO, so it would almost be like a new game to a lot of people. Both are among my all-time favorites.
Never played any of Team Ico's games before.. Watched some on Youtube, and they look awesome.. :)
Is one of my all time favorite games. You are doing yourself a disservice by not going to a buddies house who has a PS2 and playing it. You can get it dirt cheap online. Well worth it. Epic game.
I definitely will buy them. I would buy the PS2 versions now and play them on my PS3, but with the possibility they may be redone in HD... I will wait. I bought the PS2 God of War 2, a week before it was announced that they were being redone. I am not getting burned again.
I sure hope it's true. I really wanna try this game.
I forgot today is Saturday.
today is saturday for u? Lucky b******, today is sunday for me...
Anyone got any mustard? I ran out of mustard....
What? You don't like mustard? Let's see if you'll disagree now! Anyone got any vagina? I ran out of vagina....
Ever thought that people might disagree with your smartass comment because it has nothing to do with the article?
Rather eat custard...
lombax! on topic: dude, comment on the article :/ on topic of the topic: never played ico, and only demo'd SotC. im sure others would invest in a remake..i mean c'mon. its HD! two games on one disk! trophy support! improved graphics! 29.99 price point!
Sony do this. I didn't experience the games, only the demos. There are so many people out there that haven't played these games. Going from what everyone has said about these games they are brilliant. I like others want to play these classic games. Please Sony make it happen!
ICO and SOTC are games that are very very different from most games i played. They are so simple and yet very very deep. Both games atmosphere with the sound track invokes alot of emotion for me anyways. Its very important for people before they play ICO and SOCTC to understand that they are not like other games like Uncharted or KZ2 etc.
I love sony in a sexual way.
That isn't weird at all.
from my USB ports!
check PM shaft
Mostly old Chinese men?
And most of em' middle aged.
I like Sony too, but she is very high maintenance!
The :-) says it all, it's coming, comfirmed.
And strangely enough I still haven't played ICO because its too damn expensive on ebay (I have an NTSC-J PS3 and it only accepts NTSC-J PS2 discs). So Sony better hurry up and bring it out or I'm destroying my profile icon.
i had ico....and traded it into gamestop a couple years ago. *facepalm*
@ Xpandemic Not ALL OF US have the Playstation 1 and/or 2 games we want, b/c we missed out on them (when they were originally released). If Sony does decide to do HD remakes, this allows those that missed out, to re-live the awesomeness of those games. Next time, don't jump to conclusions, you jerk. I bet you haven't even noticed, there are some old games on Xbox live too! I guess you must be an idiot too, for buying "old" games.
We don't comment on rumors or speculations.
that sh1t would be awesome
It's Coming PALS, Team ICO Collection is Coming...
I just hope they don't let us down.
What would they name it though?
If true then I should sell my SotC and Ico combo pronto to a gullible one on eBay.
They are good collector's items. Especially Ico on the PS2, as well as SOTC if it isn't the Greatest Hits edition.
Yeah I bought SotC day one and with all the hype with the games release I bought ICO by luck on a Blockbuster near my house. Even at that time it was pretty hard to find it. Both aren't Greatest Hits. I do play ICO from time to time. I have it saved at my favorite part so I usually just replay that segment. Great game.
Regardless i will replay both games before TLG. I still have my PS2 copies that i haven't touched since i finished both. Just for the information of future ICO and SOTC. Both games are platforming/puzzle games. In the case SOTC you only get to fight 16 enemies in total for the duration of the game. Don't expect to shoot/kill thousands of enemies like in other games. No they are not that type of games.
but ICO is hard to find, and when you do find it, the retailer/person always wants $30+ dollars for it. :(
$30 is SOOOO worth it.
Just do right by your fans Sony and MAKE IT HAPPEN.
Resonds? whats that? I looked up dictionary term but none found LOL. :)
I have just replayed both and had a lot of fun while doing so. Would still love to play these in Hd though and would buy 1st day. Yes you arent going to replay these a hundred times each but that's not the point same as not watching your favourite film every day on dvd. But when you do feel that nostalgia and want to dip back into either of them it feels fantastic. Just like slipping on your favourite Beenie or shirt! Right off to find my favourite Beenie and shirt.
would be cool tbh. can't believe i missed these games when they released. In all fairness i'm not bothered about backwards compatibility for the most part but ico and sotc are two games i'd love to check out. making them hd + trophies would pretty much be an instant buy from me
This would be a day 1. I never played it on the ps2 but I always heard it was a great game.
I would be cool if they included the PAL version of ICO. It has some cool extras and level variations
I would totally replay these in HD. Make it happen Sony!
I hope this will be done...I never had the chance to play ICO (and I can't find the damn game anywhere) but I've still got Shadow of the Colossus on my shelf.
haven't played either of the two, and I know they were very well received.So i would love to pick up the collection.Lets hope one of their developers is scanning articles and puts forward the suggestion.
double dipping for the God of War Collection, but i'm glad i did. i didn't think there'd be much reason to play them in HD, but the crisper presentation and smoother framerate just makes it so much so worth it. to have Ico and Shadow of the Colossus presented in HD, with anti-aliasing and a smoother framerate (especially SOTC) would be heaven. i regularly replay those games on my PS3 (yeah, i have a BC PS3, but i'd much rather have HD remakes; playing GoW Collection was like how i REMEMBERED playing those games, not how it actually was), and Ico simply wasn't made to run on my HDTV, so it looks like a pixelly mess, which is a shame, because the art design is STILL gorgeous to this day. Shadow of the Colossus looks infinitely better upscaled via my PS3, but i'd still want the collection, if anything for the framerate. i don't care about Trophies, so that's not a buying factor, but for many it is. the PS2 has one of the best gaming libraries of all time. it actually AMAZES me how many gamers this generation NEVER had a PS2. i can actually understand some of the jaded, cynical views of the PS3 now, since most of the dissenters never had a PS2, and never got to experience the games from developers like Naughty Dog, Santa Monica, Sucker Punch, Insomniac, Polyphony Digital, etc, which is why us long time PlayStation fans were willing to support Sony and the PS3 during it's dark time. Ico and Shadow of the Colossus are just two extremely high points in PS2 gaming. they are beautiful and moving, and genuinely fun to play. the atmosphere alone was so beyond what many other games were doing at the time. they felt like real, yet fantastical places. the castle of Ico felt so lived in and full of history, and the world of Shadow of the Colossus literally had me exploring every nook and cranny, even when there wasn't much between locations but long stretches of land. the solitude of just roaming the country side with your horse was solemn, yet very effective. any other game that wrapped it's game play around SOLELY 16 boss battles would have fallen short. Fumito Ueda and his team did a fantastic job of making that premise actually meaningful. SOTC is one of the best games ever made, and why i'd gladly double dip on an HD collection, despite being able to pop the originals into my PS3 and play them. The Last Guardian, if it's even HALF of what Ico and SOTC were, will still be a fantastic game.
I missed out on SOTC when it first came out, I'd sold my ps2 before it was released. But a friend bought a copy a few weeks ago so I borrowed his ps2 for the weekend so I could go through it. Just completed it today, superb game, I loved it. The only critism I can throw at it is the framerate, but considering what they pulled out of the ps2 in terms of visuals it's understandable, its quite stunning. And the ending is one of the best I've seen in any game.
Is that a new word?
leave the games in their original state its more authentic that way.
yet! but THIS will be day one! just release it in EUROPE GOD DAMNNIT!
