since Ubisoft is third-party developer. Maximize profit for the company.
that would be great
inb4 teh backwardz compatibilitiez Bring it on!!! Remastered Games FTW!!!
@sikbeta Those who argue that backwards compatibility is better are pretty stupid, IMO. 1. Backwards compatibility doesn't always hold a consistent framerate 2. It suffers from screentearing a lot (I've noticed this on my 60gb PS3). 4. Not all games are supported (on 360, anyway). 3. These HD remakes are awesome because, well, they're HD. Not to mention Trophy support (achievement support?), Move support, 3D support, hell, even Developer support with patches, etc. Also, Sony is gonna make a lot of profit with these remakes because the IPs are sitting doing nothing, in fact probably costing Sony money with the copyrights. So this profit could potentially fund new games and sequels.
"Not all games are supported" And not all games are going to be remastered. I have BC already in my ps3, so I personally don't have to worry about it, but others should be able to play ps2 games. I personally prefer the remastered/trophy versions, but they're not going to do that with all ps2 games, or even all of the good selling ones. That's why they should have both backwards compatibility AND remastered classics.
its not a question of it being better or not. It is about convenience. I own Ico and Shadow of the colossus, I own all the god of wars, I own, all the sly coopers, all original. I own all the FF1-9 originals, I own Parasite eve original. It is a little frustrating, that as a collector, I got to buy games twice. I get a kick out of playing my original games on my 32" CRT, and I find it insulting that you would consider this stupid. Its very subjective, and quality has nothing to do with this kind of experience. With that said, I so like the idea of remastered versions, I own the god of war collection, I will own the Sly cooper and Team Ico collections, and yes, Prince of Persia HD is coming, I have had the discussion with one of the Ubi people that shops at my store. I said as a joke that prince of Persia sands of time series in HD would be a great idea and he laughed and said sarcastically, I have no comment on the subject, I didn't think of the splinter cells though.
@montrealien it's called CHOICE. you don't have to rebuy it. these HD remakes are targeted not for you (it's your option though) to those people who haven't owned and played these games. I for one don't have the collections you mentioned in your post. Will i buy these games? probably. since it has added features and may come cheaper.
That is a pretty weak complaint, Montrealien. If people cared about backward compatability they would have bought a PS3 with backward compatability. If they have the games that are being remastered they shouldn't care about the remastered versions. I'm not sure where the problem comes in.
@Monterealien--Well, It's all a matter of choice. No one is forcing you to buy anything. If you're content with playing the games you've bought once already then, well, enjoy them.
back wards compatability is trash i would rather they give me a collection remastered into HD with more than one game on the disc
Good news. The old Splinter Cell games were miles ahead of the latest ones. Same with the PoP games.
I will get them both and this has just made me realise wtf has happend to Ubisoft this gen man ? there games last gen were way better IMO
Well, that is not fair, they launched a very successful new IP in Assasin`s creed, Rainbow Six Vegas and GRAW are great shooters, they expanded the Tom Clansy universe with a Solid flight sim with HAWX and there Naruto games where great. And with scott pilgrim and the new Rayman 2D platformer they are clearly going in the right direction. nothing really happened to them, they still deliver great products.
I liked GRAW 2 & Conviction but i prefer the stuff from last gen
There are just a lot more completely ridiculous ideas being shown from them lately. In general they've done well this gen.
Warrior Within in its HD/Trophy Glory!!!!
Splinter Cell Collection is definitely day 1 for me if they release it. Might buy Prince Of Persia Collection later.
This actually doesnt excite me that much. Both series are on PC for a bargain price and run well on dated hardware, dont see why I should spend more money on them.
A Prince of Persia trilogy would be excellent. Sands of Time in particular was so good.
More ps3 exclusives
which is good cos well no one played every ps2game.got the god of war collection getting the sly and ico one to.i buy the splinter cell one just to try it not pop did not really like it
Prince of persia was multiplatform you know
it better not be the crappy PS2 Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory...
that would be cool , i like to see it real .
Those two collections would be nice additions. The way the Splinter Cell series should be and some quality platforming with the POP collection.
It runs pretty easy on old PC's, so try em out there if you can :) cheap on steam! If not, then HD collection is welcome
jak collection first please
I hope not. Sony should be handing all HD Collections. LOL @ splinter cell and Prince or Persia. Games nobody buys or plays.
Hopefully they announce Splinter Cell Conviction along with the HD collection.
Have these collections already, it's called playing them on PC. It's funny how we used to play games in HD back then and not even know it. Seriously though, I hope more and more collections like this make it to retail. Backwards compatibility is great, and I love it and all, but it would be nice to see more of the true classic, best of system and niche titles end up in collections and as downloadable titles. There are a few titles I have missed over the years I wouldn't mind playing. Companies should go further back and remaster/update even older classics. Perfect Dark was a prime example of a great HD remastering of an N64 classic. N64, PSOne, Saturn, Dreamcast etc... lots of classic systems, with classic games that could use some TLC.
Sounds good to me, the more remakes the better as far as im concerned.
Splinter cell and PoP HD? I kinda don't care, there have been much better games that they could remaster.
There isn't many better games they can remaster especially the first PoP and Chaos Theory... the real version not the crappy PS2/GC version
I'd love a Prince of Persia HD Collection. I'm not really a fan of Splinter Cell, so I don't really care aboot that. All I really need though is Jak & Daxter, Soul Reaver & Devil May Cry HD Collections and I'd be sooo happy. xD Somebody, anybody, please make those for me. :')
So what I can play most of those on my 360 because unlike the ps3 it's actually backwards compatible.
Not going to end well for you :P
with Splinter Cell games and Chaos Theory actually really benefits alot... you can see they put tons of work in making that game look better like Halo
I tried to play PoP SoT the other day on my new 360 Slim and the animations were painfully slow (very low framerate, I guess) so I can tell you that backward compatibility isn't what it's cracked up to be, even on the Xbox 360. An HD remake is definitely needed in order to make those games really enjoyable again.
you will play the HD collections on ur 360?
I never said I'd be playing them on my 360. I happen to own a PS3 as well. I'm pretty sure that an old version of PoP would have the same frame rate issues on a PS3.
........... IF IT DOES THEN THIS IS GOING TO BE EPIC SPLINTER CELL AND PRINCE OF PERSIA WERE REALLY TOP TEAR LAST GEN GRAPHICS WISE AND ALL OTHER REMAKES WEREN'T HD AT NO POINT PREVIOUSLY SO IM REALLY CURIOUS TOO SEE THESE REMASTERD.........
It's Ubisoft, so it's gonna' be multi-plat.
Huge fan of Splinter cell here. I had them all on the PS2 but had to buy the better versions of them on the xbox to see if there really was a diffrence and holy shit there was! Esspecailley with Choas theory!! I couldnt beleave how diffrent it almost looked when compared to the grahpics of the PS2 version. Now i can only imgaine how that would look like in HD...
OMGGGG please i would love to see splintercell !!!!!!!!!
