Last Friday thegadget weblog Gizmodo caught the fact that the Sony Style webstore stealthfully changed the projected release date of its first Blu-ray player from June 25 to "on or about August 15, 2006."

i guess they figured out they have no real competition so why hurry eh ;)

TheMART6580d ago

Well maybe it's just because

Sony stands equal for DELAY

As with it's delaystation with new problems just to be read on this site. They're loosing the battle every day

If Samsung delays their player then something is definitely wrong.

The BD format has already forced the PS3 to be delayed once and a second delay would be catastrophic for the platform.

I actually saw promo ads this week for BD players that now look to be highly dubious. Regardless of whether or not I want a PS3 at its launch price I do want to do a side-by-side with HD-DVD to compare and this is starting to look really bad with constant delays.

It really makes me wonder how many bugs are going to be found after the PS3 ships. New formats always lead to issues and this one could be a big problem, especially if they have trouble getting the movie-only players functioning on time...

They better sell HD-DVD players and discs with the blue-ray emblem on it, if they want people to eventually purchase one before 2020.

Shadow of the Colossus and Ico should be remade in UE5. I know Shadow of the Colossus was in 2018 but I say remake both of them for PS5 and PC.

The remake and Blupoints in house engine is more impressive as a whole than anything ive seen from UE5 so far. Id rather they stick to their own engine.

SoTC doesn’t need another remake.. last one was awesome

PRIMORDUS7h ago

Fine let it be Bluepoints engine. The whole point I was trying to make was I would love them both to be remade for PC since the PC never had them to begin with (I threw in PS5) and now that Sony is bringing over their games it would be awesome.

I wouldn't mind a PC port even though I own it on PS4, it really doesn't need a remake though.

Shadow of the Colossus is kind of a perfect game, at least to me.

Man, this has me nostalgic. I know how I'm spending my Sunday evening.

It's really timeless. Put SOTC together with The Last Guardian and ICO and you have one amazing trilogy. I think Fumito Ueda is a genuine auteur.

I tried the remake but couldn't get into it. Time to give it another go.

Elda1d 6h ago

I tried both versions of the game & I can never get past the 4th boss.

Well if anyone else can't get enough of this game you should check out Project Tribute. Basically a fan remake with all the cut colossi for PC.
