At first I was like :D then I read "The format is PlayStation 2." so I was like >:[
Man i hope that this get a RELEASE on PS3 with HD resolutions, Trophy support and AA and maybe improved graphics, but i want SotC Team Ico make it happen
When PS3's don't even read PS2 games? You would think the VERY LEAST they could do is put the files on a blu-ray disc and make it readable by the PS3's hardware? Sony's biggest fail this generation was removing the support for games that were compatible with their most successful console. It's a shame so many dumbass cheapskate gamers wanted it removed from the system in order to reduce the price...
WTH! Please make it for PS3!
Y'know, I do have a 60 gb PS3 with PS2 support, however its a SE Asian model, and the stupid region restrictions still apply. Do you know how hard it is to get ICO and Shadow of the Colossus in NTSC-J? I finally got SoC, but I'll like to try out ICO too. If Sony could re-release them in PS3 format that would be great.
PS2 is going to last 10 years, so their isn't a point in making PS3 play PS2 games and they can finish up on making it run right in the PS3. Plus I could care less about playing PS2 games on my PS3 because my 60MB memory card doesn't work with the Memory Reader -_- so that kills it and plus I would like to have the PS2 system to just play them. Its the same reason why I keep the Playstation(Not PSOne/Slim model) around to play all my old Playstation games.
Only a matter of time guys. It's only just a matter of time before a PS3 HD remake appears on our local Bestbuy/Walmart/Gamestop etc shelves :)
Oh Boooo! Why would they re-release this on PS2 again! Bring it to the PSN at least. What a great game, one of the most memorable I ever played.
Honestly, if they did the same thing with ICO and Shadow of the Colossus that they did for GoW 1 & 2 for advertising The Last Guardian, I'm fairly certain tons of PS3 gamers would love it and would go a long way towards getting more people interested in the next game.
This is only a theory, not a proven fact so don't go runnin around saying its 100% true: I'm thinking this will be one of the test games for when they bring backwards compatible as a fw update to the ps3. I know people will argue to the grave there's tons of ps2 games but with some sort of enhancements to them would raise a very good question of why
Because the HD remake for PS3 will be Digital Download only, which is why you don't see it listed in retails? :P
SotC in HD would look amazing. I really want a Team Ico collection.
If they are reprinting the game that could mean it's hard to find a copy. SotC is a gem, everybody must have it. Dont be surprised if close to The Last Guardian release, Sony puts another collection together. SotC would look amazing, not so sure about ICO.
I got SOC on my old phat ps3 :]
Because the 138 million PS2s haven't disappeared? But I would have preferred a PS3 remake or at least remaster :(
Its a shame, I like everyone else would prefer re-mastered to re-released, or at least PSn version so its playable on PS3. (Not for me, but for the whinning masses.) Still, hear my words, if you havent played this game yet, its well worth buying a PS2 just to play it. I mean, what are they now, like 50 bucks? PS Team ICO Collection please. I know you know you're already getting all my money Sony, but I'm sure I can scrape up a bit more for HD Ico and SotC.
Could be a downloadable title..
better late than never
i was planning on playing the one i had again but if this has trophies ill wait
It is being re-released on the PlayStation 2.
They should release ICO and SotC on ONE BD disc
agreed, even thou i only played ICO demo... I'd like to play ICO full game.
With HD graphics and trophies support!!!
Just re-release on the PS3 and I will buy it....again.
they should bundle it with The Last Guardian like an extra game or whatever.
Hang on chaps. This isn't bad news for a hoped for, longed for Ico and SotC HD for PS23 at all is it? It seems very odd to me that they's be in JUST to brush up a no-massive-selling -anyway game just for PS2 when nearly anyone ever interested is already a PS3 owner by now. Surely this can only be a by product of the proposed PS3 dual release to drum up further deserved interest in TLG sometime in 2010 and the PS2 stuff would always be out first as it'd be easiest. I think them looking again at it can only mean the PS3 release from PS2 that make the most sense is now incoming.
Good comment mastiffchild. Bubble+
I was looking all the way down the page to see if someone else was thinking that. It really doesn't make much sense to re-release the ps2 version, they've gotta know how much the masses are clamoring for a Team Ico collection for the PSTriple.
im never been played this. i will have a chance to play it when its release!
if you have a ps2 you can buy it brand new off amazon for $18.82. Ico on the other hand is more expensive & used ($40-50) because it's been out of print for quite some time.
SotC is awesome as well as Ico. I won't be buying either though if they come out on a bluray disc. I have both. It's funny, i didn't play ps2 very much last gen, so after i buy my ps3 i see all these games that i missed out on (killzone, gow, sotc, etc). So i go and i buy a ps2 and i order gow 1&2, SotC (a friend tracked down ico for me and sent it my way, $50 at gamestop) and killzone. What does Sony do a month later...they announce HD versions of gow 1&2 and now this. I doubt SotC would be re-released on the ps2. It doesn't make sense, im with mastiff child on this one. I'm not mad that i bought a ps2 and ultimately spent more money, cause i'm able to play all the ps2 games now and there's no sense in waiting for BC, i don't think it'll be coming back to the ps3 anytime soon.
The game looked stunning on the PS2....just imagine it on the PS3. Even with just a little extra polish this game would look fantastic.
I would buy this IN A SECOND just like I did with the GOD OF WAR COLLECTION!!! IMMEDIATE BUY DAY 1 100%
THOUGHT THIS WAS LIKE THE GOW COLLECTION NEVERMIND
I hope this isn't JP Sony exploiting the native market only to offer a SOTC/ICO PS3 collection later to the rest of the world.
just imagine it: Ico Collection contains Iko and Shadow of the Collossus remastered in HD with trophy support, with a download voucher for The Last Guardian demo makes me droul...
i missed them both on ps2 as ps3 died might go any buy them. cant be bothered replacing ps3.
the game was not huge wen it came out before i loved it and would love to see ico/soc on one disk i would buy that in a hart beat
If Sotc was remastered oooooh snap, day 1 buy. In fact I would wait in the cold pouring rain at midnight to buy it. >:[
re-release? screw that!, make a remastered HD version for ps3 along with ICO
I wish this game would get re-made for ps3. I did not realize that when you back up your hard drive it does not back up your ps2 saves and I was on the 8th colossus. I'm gonna start again but if they do a remake I will wait.
I agree with everyone that has a brain. PS3 ICO collection is just something that has to happen, right now. Don't take the time to put your pants on or brush your teeth. Get making me a HD ICO collection for my PS3 right now.
I guess i will wait till that happens
if this happens then im going to be so freaking happy, And 4th feb one day after my 18th haha XD
"Team ICO collection"?
sweeeeeeeeeet,if they make this one in 720p and 60fps im in day 1!!!
I bought SOTC and ICO last year (in UK) to play on PAL PS3. The horse had more personality than Mister Cook and Chainsaw biker guy combined.
I had my hopes up till I read...
I could always pick this up and emulate it on my PC. Anyone know if any PS2 emulators run in high def? Surely they have that by now. I can run wii games in 1080p via dolphin.
iv got a ps3 60gb launch model (currently awaiting arrival of my 3rd actually due to the ol' yellow light thing) and am pretty chuffed that it plays my special edition of colossus, and play it every year or so for the nostalgia, and i would pay extortionate prices for a blu ray/hd update of the game, its truly one of the games of the decade. c'mon team ico, do a god of war n give us what we want, i'll make it worth ur while ;)
