What does it take to remake a PS2 game in HD for PS3?

CVG: With a Tomb Raider collection on the way we thought Crystal Dynamics' brand director Karl Steward was the perfect person to give us the details. Here's what he had to say. (PS2, PS3, Tomb Raider Trilogy, Tomb Raider: Anniversary, Tomb Raider: Legend, Tomb Raider: Underworld)

people willing to buy it that's all..

Ps3 - backward compatibility = potential $$

why would they ever miss out on an opportunity like that? I say this is purposely done!!

this better than an hd remake & it's free!!
devs can be lazy & still make money!

ok you can defend them now..

I have the original ICO and Shadow of the Colossus, GOW 1&2 and Sly games(many people do) along with my PS2 system(didn't need to get rid of it)

And I'm happily buying the PS3 HD collections. Why?
Remastered, Trophies, 60fps, HD.

Also, if you haven't had the chance to play these games before, what better way to play them now :)

not alot i wouldnt of thought. but you will still get over charged for it. good thing about xbox originals is that the first xbox was already HD and the ps2 wasnt. so no need for hd versions of games that are already hd.

I don't understand how a ps2 port can't be run at 1080p, at least 720p at 60fps...
I think they're too lazy...

If I may just hijack the topic here, can anyone tell me if the Sly Cooper collection is worth getting for someone who never played them on PS2 but who's sick to death of modern grey macho realistic shooters and wants something different??

You totally just answered your own question there...
XXXCouture  +   1728d ago
i would say its perfect if you havent played them before, and want something different from all the shooters

I'm a SLY noob myself but bought the collection - Get it, it's awesome. Make sure you play them in order too. The first game has some issues, but they're ironed out completely for 2 and 3 (2 is my favourite).

The Move mini-games are pretty pointless, but at least offer a few more trophies.

Oh, and Carmalita Fox is hot....

totally worth it if you're a platformer fan. Sly 1 is kinda short but due to the nature of Sly2 and 3 the collection will easily give you lots and lots of game hours , I mean, GREAT game hours!

Thanks folks, I'll definitely get it then.

Is it just me or are other people wondering if they will ever announce onimusha for the PS3...That was one of the best hack and slash games i played last GEN.
BISHOP-BRASIL  +   1728d ago
Capcom don't look interested in making good stuff this gen, I don't see them remaking good stuff from last gen. Too bad, I definetily would be in the line to buy Onimusha remakes, specially 4, 2 and 3, in that order.

What does it take to make all these developers to realize that a ton of people would just love if they could make PS2 HD classic made for the PS3 with trophies or even online if the game originally had a similar function build into it (Ratchet and Clank 3 Up your Arsenal or Jak X come to mind) I would totally shell out all the money I had to get them, you know as long as they sell for a reasonable price, I mean how hard is it to make the graphics a bit sharper, add some trophies and the before mentioned possible online.

SOCOM 2 anyone?

GTA : San Andreas
