Gamers will soon be able to experience the first three action-packed narratives of operative Sam Fisher and rediscover the original Prince of Persia trilogy. Both are being re-mastered in high definition with 3D viewing capabilities.
I wouldn't trust the Splinter Cells, they just may be straight up-rez's ports of the PS2 versions.
Better be the Xbox versions. PS2 versions were good, but no match for the Xbox versions. Hated how broken up the levels were.
People here hate facts when u r critcizing about something Playstation related. Ah, gotta love the insecurity and sensitivity of the Sony fanboys...
^seems to me you are the one insecure and sensitive, why else would you mention one side and not the other?
Agreed. People are so narrow minded here. Even Bin Laden is more open minded.
There remastered so it dont matter if they ps2 versions the code etc can be fixed up.....
They had pc versions as well, they wouldn't need to port from consoles.
This guy hit the nail on the head. Yeah hopefully they will be the PC ones just ported over. What would be the point in trying to remaster the original PS2 versions of the games when they have it already in the PC versions?
True. I reckon that's even easier, since PS3 is not anything like the PS2 AND Ubi already has the track record for PC-to-PS3 re-mastered ports with PoP.
More likely they are the PC versions.
You can clearly see they used the Xbox/PC versions for the PS3 re-release. The shots of Chaos Theory have dynamic lighting and shadows, which were not present on PS2.
The xbox version of Chaos Theory is the definitive stealth game of all time. First truly next gen game. My friends and I still play it on XBL from time to time. Great co-op. Very happy to see HD version coming to PS3.
If they're porting the PS2 version of ANY Tom Clancy game then gtfo. They just weren't graphically inferior, they were pure garbage technically. Better be the Xbox or PC versions being remastered.
Well given Ubisoft's track record i wouldn't be surprised if they were as half-assed as the PoP ones were. Of course i may give them the benefit of a doubt here but i have a bad feeling about this.
not to sound like an idiot, but will this include the multiplayer on pandora tommarow and chaos theory? because if it does, I'd be more than happy to pluck 40 dollars down for what I consider to be the most exciting multiplayer around.
I really enjoyed Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow
3D? Even with the up-rez, I can't see this being awesome in 3D.
Why not? 3DS doesn't have the graphical capabilities of an HD console and people don't seem to mind.
Im definitely not buying the splinter cell trilogies.If they could get rid of that stupid three alarm in the first two games. Then i might buy it.
That's an awfully lame reason not to get it if you actually want it. It was more challenging with the 3 alarm system and I honestly wish they would have kept it.
only on ps3!!!!
Xbox 360 gets hosed (so far) but we'll see if Ubisoft decides to release an XB version later on.
Not true, I have all those splinter cell games and they work fine on my 360. They are upscaled a little in graphics as well, but I would't mind having this collection just to see how good they look in blu-ray.
Upscaled and re-mastered are not in the same league. Compare GOW2 on PS3 to GOW collection. GOW collection ftw!
yep ... I give u a bubble just cuz u said this and only got 1 bubble!
...the XBOX got the superior versions of these games the FIRST time they were released, because the PS2 simply couldn't handle them. And, unlike the PS2 versions, are all BC on the 360 already. Nice try though.
The XBox Splinter Cells didn't have achievements or 3D support. These three do, including better native resolution without upscaling. For posterity, these are the ones to get.
Hey, you took my profile pic. haha It's cool, man. Yeah the PS3 is truly starting to shine when it comes to games. Actually, it has been for the last 3 years, but 2011 is the best so far.
anounces? PoP trilogy has been the in shops for weeks if not months now...
No shops in my country.
According to the news report they will be on disc (assuming they are talking about US releases.) Not PSN release.
i live in the uk we've had it in shops for some time now, i guess we don't always get everything last....
Looks like I don't need to import the PoP Trilogy from the UK anymore.
I had a feeling they would eventually do a disc release in NA. That is why I haven't purchased the digital releases yet.
Any word about online? Pandora Tomorrow's Merc vs Spies was a blast.
That's what I wanna know about :/
I've heard that the PoP games are in need of a patch for its audio. So I'll hold off until then.
I'm hoping for PC port tho'..
Maybe later if/when Ubisoft announces a XB 360 release of the exact same thing.
What makes you think they will? There's absolutely no reason to release these as timed exclusives. If they haven't already announced it, I doubt they will later on.
I wonder why they arent coming to the 360.
I think Kinect has taken all their "buy games" money. Kinda funny a franchise that started on the Xbox (Splinter Cell) is getting an HD facelift for the PS3.
sweet i was this close to getting prince of persia trilogy as a first import and it looks like i'll be picking up splinter cell trilogy as well
yeah, i just might buy the splinter cell remasters. with the exception of the last splinter cell it is one of my favorite franchises.
Of course you don't like the last Splinter Cell.. You don't have an Xbox..
actually the last SC was only good for co-op
I bet he has a PC.
Nothing wrong with having a PC.
And the last Splinter Cell game wasn't *that* bad.
sooo how bout you shut up now, eh? http://img189.imageshack.us... http://img517.imageshack.us... http://n4g.com/user/home/du... @News10GameGuys no it wasnt *that* bad, but it still was a pretty big dissapointment.
SC : Conviction incoming. Not that i'm interested...
Lol yeah.. Prince of Persia 5 is too.. It's gonna be exclusive to the PS3
These trilogies, from what I can tell, all have some relation with a future release. God of War = God of War III Sly Cooper = Teaser for new Sly game Team ICO Collection = Last Guardian Tomb Raider = New TR game Splinter cell = New SC game coming out. conviction will probably get released on the PS3 before the new one comes out. probably on PSN only though.
God of war collection Team ico collection Sly collection Prince of persia collection splinter cell HD trilogy rolling back the golden times thanks to blu ray, all mastered with HD support makes them a must buy for the fans of the series like myself from my PS2 hey day
If sony would just send me a Metal Gear Trilogy in HD I could die happy. Oh and use Silicon Knight's MGS1 remake, and not the PS1 version. MGS: Twin Snakes MGS2 MGS3: Subsistence make it happen!!
@White-Sharingan That would be a killer pack. You got my money :)
hopefully this could mean conviction is coming out on ps3
why would you want it? /: played it on pc and it was horrid.
playing it at my mates it was actually really fun i thought sorry for liking a game you do not
Never got through the second splinter cell. Gonna def buy the SC pack.
I've never been a Splinter Cell fan, but I loved the Prince of Persia Trilogy. I'll definitely be putting this on my list. I'm loving these HD remasters, and it's making it so that I don't have to worry too badly if my BC PS3 croaks on me again. lol. So far, some of my favorite series from the PS2 era have got an HD remaster: God of War, Sly Cooper, and Ico/SOTC, and they're releasing Beyond Good and Evil, Tomb Raider, and PoP. Now, if they'll just do collects of these: Kingdom Hearts Zone of the Enders Final Fantasy Metal Gear Solid Dark Cloud 1, 2 + Rogue Galaxy Odin Sphere Okami + Viewtiful Joe] Silent Hill I won't need my BC PS3 as badly (there are still some niche titles I love like Second Sight, Primal, Mark of Kri, Ghosthunter, but the ones above are the titles I replay the most). I'll probably pick up the Tomb Raider Collection also, as I never played Anniversary, Legend, or Underworld. I invested a lot of money into my 2 HDTVs, and I'm always up for HD content, even if it's remasters of some of my favorite game. I'll take remasters over upscaling any day of the week. God of War Collection is simply AMAZING in terms of fluidity of game play, and the clean, sharp visuals. If Konami, and Square-Enix want to hop on the HD remaster bandwagon, I welcome it (Konami: throw in a Castlevania HD collection featuring SOTN, the DS Castlevanias, and even the PS2 Castlevanias; which I enjoyed; and I'll be all over that as well, even at $60 for the whole lot).
You might get your wish on a couple of those, especially if S-E keeps having hemmoraging money with FFXIV.
Now just wait a god damn minute for people who dont know. Firstly, we dont know what they hell Ubisoft is useing to bring into HD. Xbox or the PS2 versions, WE DONT KNOW! And second, they never said. Anyways, i do hope its the Xbox versions because i have the PS2 versions. True, they were not as great as the Xbox versions but graphicalley they were alright, i had no problem with the PS2 versions.
Now the Xbox versions were def better as people say they were. Esspecailley Chaos theory made the PS2 version look like a high school project. Not bashing here, because im a huge Splinter cell fan and keeping this in mind i did buy an Xbox just to better experence Splinter cell better on that system.
But really though, in the end it doesnt matter what they remaster itll probabley look good either way when you see it. I think i pretty much will be buying the collection because iam a huge fan of SC. If this is a sign of Conviction comming to the PS3 then hey, im all for it!
I'm only guessing here but it seems like some sort of hybrid??? (PS2 engine with some bells & whistles) There choice of shots is questionable cuz I own all PS2,XBOX and have played PC versions and I can't clearly identify it as any. Hmmmm.... The plot thickens.
I've played the Splinter Cell series & always liked the controls. But I always found Metal Gears stories & characterisation more interesting... Anyway, is PoP set worth getting? Never played it. Only a demo of 1 which I thought made the game too easy?
Ubisoft HD remake are shit !! I just wish if sony can handle all the remake stuff , gow ,sly collection woooooow there were fucking stunning !!! beautiful and running at 60fps !!!! pop hd collection was bad imho O__O I so regret buying it !!! the iphone version of warior within was much better than the ps3 version :P please ubisoft I am really looking for the splinter cell collection so don't ruined it , PC port and 60 fps and 1080 native if possible :p
I haven't played any of these (except Conviction), so I'm looking forward to picking one - or both - up.
Wish they re-launched Double Agent on PSN, the multiplayer in that game is unique and the most intense I've ever played, though many people may find it boring because there's not a continuous sound of weapons firing and explosions. It has a nice pace, it's really quiet, then you get spotted by a mercenary player,their loud gunfire goes off you start to feel frantic and desperate to find a place to hide behind.
not really new but disc based versions are welcome.
