PlayStation Blog - Shadow of the Colossus in 3D: Eyes On, Hands On

"This is Shadow of the Colossus, one of the most highly regarded games ever released and a beacon to many game developers for its epic grandness, its subtle artistry, and its messy emotional context. Along with Ico, Shadow of the Colossus is returning this spring in dazzling HD with robust (though optional) stereoscopic 3D support. I donned a pair of active-shutter 3D glasses to get a fresh look at Fumito Ueda’s masterpiece running on the PS3.

Playing Shadow of the Colossus in 3D, I was immediately struck by the agoraphobic vastness of the landscape. The stark beauty of the world is far clearer thanks to new high-resolution environment textures looted from the hard drives at developer Team Ico. And in case you were wondering, Bluepoint Games is handling the conversion duties for the Ico and Shadow of the Colossus Collection — if you played the God of War Collection, then you’re familiar with their handiwork."

Wow, imagine fighting the last colossus in 3D.

Hozi892922d ago

The Last Colossus? I can't imagine how amazing it will be to play this entire game in 3d! It's so great to hear this.

TroyAndAbed2922d ago

As epic as the last colossus would be, imagine the second to last colossus. HOLY. FRICK!

I just got my 3d tv, and somehow I never played either Ico or SOTC on my PS2.

I've got the feeling that I'm in for a big treat!
(Unfortunately an article that didn't warn of spoilers ruined both SOTC & Heavy Rain endings for me.....)

@jony_dols I had some of SotC spoiled in a preview for The Last Guardian in PTOM too but I still really enjoyed the game. I bought Ico and SotC for PS2 right before this collection was announced. You are in for a treat, I bet they look amazing on a 3DTV.

VINNIEPAZ2922d ago

Damn I cant wait for these games.

@Arup02 what is up w/ your avatar if I may ask?

Arup022922d ago

Dunno, just messing with my avatar image =D

TroyAndAbed2922d ago

Gonna have to keep an eye on Bluepoint Games. ;)

AKS2922d ago

They seem to be quite skilled. I've had some poor experiences with some other teams who have handled conversions of classics, especially the notorious Backbone.

TheLastGuardian2922d ago (Edited 2922d ago )

Is that who's remastering this collection? Sony is pushing 3D pretty hard in their triple a titles. Unchart3D, KILLZONE 3D (I've seen a KZ3 trailer in 3D), MoterStorm 3D, Moral Kombat and Ico & Shadow Collection sounds like it would be incredible to play in 3D. SotC has some of the best graphics on PS2. I really want a 3DTV next year but I just bought a 40 inch Bravia back in March.

I also bought Ico for $35 and SotC sealed for $15 earlier this year. They are amazing games but theres also like 30 retail games I want and a PS Phone and a PSP2. I was the closest I've ever been to getting a job a month ago but after I bought my work clothes and shoes and after I filled out paper work and watched 4 hours of training videos she said she would call me with my schedule but she never called me back. Anyways, my point is I need a job if I want to afford all the stuff I want so I might not be getting Ico & Shadow Of The Colossus Collection day 1 even though my name is TheLastGuardian.

Hozi892922d ago

Dude,I totally understand how stressed you are. I've been through something similar before.

as for me though, I'm happy the option for 3d is there. I won't play it in 3d cuz I don't own a 3d tv but when the prices become more reasonable. I might give it a try. It's good to have these extra features for the future.

TANUKI2922d ago

Just gets more beautiful with each passing article.

rezzah2922d ago

Ahh this will be so awesome when it comes out. the only thing I wont use is the 3D option because I personally dont like 3D for gaming. I tried it out at Best Buy but it just wasnt for me. However I look forward to playing these epic titles in 1080p.

clintos592922d ago

I already own the original copies of both games but I loved both of them so much I am going to buy 2 of these copies for me and my little brother is dying to see what all the fuss is about these 2 games. So I cant wait to see what he thinks after he plays them.

Bathyj2922d ago

Arent you a good brother?

I have then both too. I got them both day one and they are among my favourite games ever.

But lets just say, they werent meant for big sceen LCD's. The jaggies are lke saw teeth and ICO isnt even in widescreen if I remember right.

So I have no problem buying these again in HD. I dont care about trophies and I dont care about 3D (yet, I will eventually, so I/m glad its there) but just to have these two masterpieces in HD will be worth it and help stave off the wait for my personal Most Wanted game The Last Guardian.

bananlol2922d ago

Have them both too, but when they cam out i was a pc gamer so i never heared about them. When i bought them it was second hand, and when i realized they were among the greatest games ive ever played i actually felt bad about that. I wonder how playing then in hd will feel, for me the blurry atmosphere the low rezulution created actually contributed to the feel of the game.
