Sony apparently sent out a survey containing a question that asked fans to suggest a Playstation 2 series that should be remastered (similar to God of War Collection) on the Playstation 3.
oh my god please do Sony. There are so many past titles that the mass wants to play again on ps3.
I was thinking about this, then I realised the main thing that makes a game memorable is the experience playing it at the time. I honestly don't think there would be that many games that would make the leap to HD and still be considered quality. For example, I was thinking that I would really love to play Timesplitters 2 again, but then when i think about it.. What really made that a good game? The story telling? The graphics? I suppose it was a bit of both but give me Killzone 2 any day over Timesplitters 2. That doesn't mean that when I was playing I didn't have more fun playing Timesplitters 2 because in fact i did have more fun with it. What i'm saying is I don't think I would really enjoy the game that much if it was brought out again... However I would agree with what someone said below about adding backwards compatibility. That really would be a much better move but I suppose that isn't a great business idea for sony who want to make money. Anyway.. give me timesplitters 4 anyday over a remade 'splitters 2 haha.
Shadow of colossus / Ico / mgs3 / Okami / Okami /Okami / Okami / Okami / Okami
I remember taking a survey asking about this not long ago. They specifically asked about Shadow of the Colossus and Ico. At least I think they did. I can almost swear I took a survey on it maybe a month ago. Anyways, I answered yes to a remastered version in high definition, of course. :D
I would love to see Freedom Fighters and Dropship contiuned.
OKAMI!!!!, sucks i can't even find it for the Wii :(
Art Collection: Ico + Shadow of the Colossus + Okami Metal Gear Collection: MGS + MGS2 + MGS3 (Though this has been done, sadly) Jak Collection: Jak & Daxter + Jak 2 + Jak 3 (If they announce Jak 4 this is a given...) Wouldn't mind seeing a Ratchet collection but the games are fairly similar so I may as well boot up Tools or Crack.
If anyone has any suggestions, it's kinda useless posting them on n4g. Instead, why don't you try: http://share.blog.us.playst... You have a better chance of being heard by sony there rather than here. edit: Vote on these Sly Cooper collection: http://share.blog.us.playst... Ico Collection: http://share.blog.us.playst... Final Fantasy Collection: http://share.blog.us.playst... Kingdom Hearts Collection: http://share.blog.us.playst... Silent Hill Collection: http://share.blog.us.playst... Ratchet & Clank Collection: http://share.blog.us.playst... Just to name a few I've seen here.
MGS, MGS2, and MGS3 have not been given hi res remaster for the PS3.
mgs remastered :) resident evil? killzone 1? theres sooo many.....
The Silent Hill collection sounds delicious. Do it, Konami!
I got the survey in my email tonight. I said the Ratchet & Clank series, Jak & Daxter series, as well as the PS2 Tenchu games. I should've also suggested the MGS games. They're legendary games as well.
A Squaresoft/Enix box set would be nice. Any combination of Chrono Cross, Valkyrie Profile, Xenogears,FFT, Einhander, BFM...
Clover collection please mr 'n mrs Sony.
@SaiyanFury , got it as well. suggested : Jak games, R&C games and Shadow of Collosus & ICO. I also said I'd love to see some FF collections, but it's a long shot.
Timesplitters 2 was god, and it damn deserves a HD reincarnation. Crytek own Free Radical now so they probs got other ideas. Hell, i'm waiting for Timesplitters 4!
Final Fantasy X + Final Fantasy XII collection. Only put X-2 on the disc if it can fit but still keep the price at $40.
Noctis Aftermath, BD has 25GB Single Layer. Avg PS2 games are well 3.5GB, times 3 = 10.5GB. With add of improve to 720p or even 1080p is enought. if you ask me they can at less put well over 9 Titles in Dual layer. Just to make it clear. FF1 to 12 can be all in one disc. Tho iono about FF11, sence there could be so much update with alot of data.
If they could put FF1-FFXII on 1 dual-layer Blu-Ray that would be one hell of a collection.
O.o that is full of win
Personally, I didn't care for FFX. FF11 was online only so I never played it. FFX-2 was merely an extention of FFX so I doubt I'd care for it. FF12 might be cool in HD, I loved Fran's high heels animation (I'm a sucker for women in high heels). Seeing 12 in HD would be cool.
that funny I like ffx way more than 12, cause 12 was so boring imo even for 2 buck I wouldn't buy it I would probably throw it to the dog hahaaha
lol i put that idea on ps blog but i think someone already posted it, I would buy it in a heartbeat if it came out it would nice to relive the days where FF was a masterpiece
With an all areas accessible mode where all maps are on one giant map and you just fly to Vice City or Liberty City or San Andreas at any time. Completely open, so when you are playing with Tommy Versetti and you aren't doing missions, you can fly over to San Fiero and do whatever. Also Liberty and Vice City Stories are on the disk with a new San Andreas stories. I know that this isn't a Sony franchise and they would really have no say in this, but it would be cool none the less!
along with the dark cloud, R&C, J&D, and Kingdom Hearts
Dark Cloud/Dark Cloud 2 to support the release of Dark Cloud 3. Please God!!!
Also, I'm fairly certain this has to be Sony IP only. A lot of people here seem to be throwing in names like Kingdom Hearts, MSGS, etc... Those won't happen unless the studios that made the game put out the remastered version. Dark Cloud series on the other hand, more than well deserved of a remastering.
You need to do it SONY!!! I want: TEAM ICO Collection HD JAK Collection HD Ratchet Collection HD MGS2+MGS3 Collection HD RE Collection HD just Port and put REø + REmake + RE2 + RE3 + RE4 in One BRD... And more...
Team Ico, Legacy of Kain, and Mark of Kri would be great collections
Awesome. This would be great news. And on that note, every one of the replies here has hit a key game or game series that really deserves a revamping. With all that they did to the GoW collection, if that same amount of quality enhancement and added content is provided, I feel that definitely makes it worth purchasing. And there are a LOT of games I would love to see handled this way, and would definitely warrant a $40 purchase for me. My favorites and definite interests for remakes would probably be: Metal Gear Solid series Ico / Shadow of the Colossus Yakuza 1 / Yakuza 2 Resident Evil 4 / Resident Evil: Code Veronica Dark Cloud / Dark Cloud 2 Final Fantasy X / Final Fantasy XII Grand Theft Auto: Vice City / San Andreas Jak and Daxter series Ratchet and Clank series Sly Cooper series Kingdom Hearts series Zone of Enders 1 / Zone of Enders 2 Onimusha series Hitman series Okami
Persona 3 and 4 would be awesome. But if this is only Sony owned IP's that's not gonna happen. A Xenosaga collection would be awesome. Those games(Episode 3 in particular) would look really good remastered and being able to play them all on one disc would be awesome. I would basically like to see any good series on PS3 get that treatment. MGS 2-3, The whole Onimusha series, the whole DMC series, Silent Hill 2 and 3(add for if ya want but I wouldn't miss it). Zone of the Enders 1 and 2. Alot more but yeah to many to list.
Persona would be awesome. Persona 4 should have been HD to begin with, if you ask me. Lazy Atlus. At you below me, cgoodno, would love to see Parasite Eve redone. Tho I wasn't too fond of the sequel. Something about the atmosphere of it turned me off a bit. Personally, I would want Valkyrie Profile 1 and 2. VP 2 had some crazy puzzles in the Seraphic Gate. Some of them took me hours to figure out. I think FF as a whole is overrated (sorry people). Every FF (7+) game had something in it I hated in the end. Seven was too slow and I hated the choco sidequest to get KotR. Eight...enemy levels were based on yours so you could beat the game and run from every random encounter. Nine the main characters were like fifteen years old. Yup, babies save the world! And Ozma gets the vote for the stupidest optional boss ever (a round globe, really?) Ten had the 'capture every fiend' quest for the optional dungeon. Eleven had grinding, storyline crap that required alliances, etc. Twelve had a horrible story, too many items had low drop rates, etc. It just sucked. And XIII, well, let's kill stupid turtles for as long as it took to beat the main game for what? Oh, yeah, to fight the hardest monster in the game. ANOTHER TURTLE (Long Gui). Retarded. Sorry. /endrant on why FF should not be remade.
The obvious ones: - MGS 1-3 - ICO + Shadow of the Colossus - GTA (all) Personal Favorites: - Parasite Eve 1 & 2 - Okami - Silent Hill 1 & 2 - Resident Evil 4 - Persona 3FES & 4 - Kingdom Hearts
I would LOVE to see Parasite Eve 1 and 2 but considering they are PS1 games they would need a hell of a lot more then a simple remastering. They would need to be redone with a new engine or something. A remastering would make them look worse if anything as it would bring out the weakness of the game engine from back then.
what with listing random games, you need to know remaster is only possibly be done by Sony own ip not konami square capcom
Socom 2 HD running on PSN please. I'd pay 200 bucks for that remake.
I have heard great things of Shadow of colossu and Ico. Would love to play them on the PS3 in HD. It would be a day one purchase for me.
I did the survey tonight and I suggested that they bring out MGS2 and MGS3 out as a remastered collectors edition. I know this is a long shot, but I also suggested that they make a remastered collectors edition for SOCOM 1,2,3 and Combined Assault. Could you imagine if they combined all the Socom maps and intergrated them with the PSN? That would be the best thing since sliced bread.
Since it was basically only a japanese release, theres alote of content English speaking players have missed out on.
Just make the cell be able to play PS2 games on all our PS3s. I dont have BC anymore sadly. They can even let the PS3s copy the whole PS2 disk on the HDD and play it from there. I dont mind if it's 4gb-8gb big.
Give me Metal Gear Solid 3, Shadow of the Collosus or Final Fantasy X in 720p remastered and I'll buy a PS3!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ! !!!!!!!!!!
if they put out atari collection on ps3, i'll buy one! /s
all ps2 games remastered as blu-ray games on ps3 seem like they started off with super street fighter iv now raystorm HD ps3
THE METAL GEAR COLLECTION.
Yakuza Collection ICO Collection (High possibility of happening) MGS Collection Final Fantasy Collection Kingdom Hearts Collection Resident Evil Collection GTA Collection Tales of- Collection
Shadow of the Colossus/Ico, MGS2/3 (even MGS if it can be done), Killzone, RE4, FFX,FFXII and I'll be good. Oh wait no I wont. PS2 had SOOO MANY great games! I honestly couldn't even begin cause I know I'm missing more.....
Shadow of the Colossus!
SotC and ICO
Pretty sure that hasn't been confirmed. It'd be awesome, but its just a rumor.
yes !! and Resident Evil 4 or MGS 1,2,3.
Just finished replaying MGS2(should have replayed it before playing MGS4). That game is a pretty good alternative to current gen and wouldn't need much work. My PS3 just died, so I broke out the PS2 and have been playing a few old PS2 games. Weird that my 9 yr old PS2 is still functioning when my PS3 is dead, but my PS2 was in the shop a few times itself! Both have thousands of hours of operating time on them, so I'm not really mad!
The Onimusha Series 1-4 all on Bluray with 1080p 60fps. I would soo love to play through onimusha 3 and 4 they were impressively well made games on the PS2.
hope this turns out true.....
I want HD Ratchet and Jak quadrilogies. Ratchet more so though, it would also be great for those who only jumped into Ratchet on PS3 too, High Impact Games could probably do a really good port.
except i'd want the J&D series more.
Call me odd, but I'd just like to see the whole R&C series on PS3 and play the online modes of both R&C3 and Gladiator. And yeah, obviously I want Jak. But on my EU PS3, both Jak 2 and 3, X work perfectly, the Ratchets on the other hand, just don't work, terrible buggy framerates.
Am i the only one that is against re-doing these games? Why not leave them as testimonials to how awesome they were in their times? Its kinda like updating the Special fx in the original star wars movies. Sure it looks better but why are we going back and covering up the masterpieces that were achieved?
Cause not all of us played it? Cause the prices of some of the old titles spikes like crazy in price? Cause people want to experience it again with added bonus?
"Cause the prices of some of the old titles spikes like crazy in price" I dunno about you but I saw Shadow of the colossus and GOW 2 for 18 at gamestop. I just feel playing the game at its original state is more authentic.
It probably says something about me but I started playing FFVII recently and couldn't keep on playing cos really... it looked awful compared to what I've been used to lately. I know gameplay > graphics but theres only so much I can take. Especially on my 42" tv. So I guess in that sense re-doing the game wouldnt be too bad.
ICO is incredibly rare, so I think that is what Clown is talking about. Also, the PS2s weren't known for lasting very long. I'm sure the slims are fine, but I don't think most people are gonna downgrade if they have a non PS2 compatible PS3.
FF7 is not a remake, is just a PS 1 game made available on PSN, and playing it on the PSP is the better way to enjoy it because on the big tv looks awful and depressing. GoW Collection proved me that some great titles can be even better at locked 60 fps and HD glory, that remake was brilliant. ICO and SotC should work perfectly, just like MGS series. Many PS2 owners missed ICO and SotC, and Ico current price is unacceptable (although i got it for $8 at gamestop last year but i just saw it at $80, lol). i will support this remake collection as long as they are priced at $40 (more than one game on a sweet bluray with extra content) and the games are true classics. this is way better than having a BC PS3, because even with the upscaling GoW series on PS2 still dont look near as good as the GoW collection
Yeah I know it wasn't a remake. I was responding to "tunaks1" who said he was against remakes and would prefer just to leave them as they originally were "as testimonials to how awesome they were in their times". I was pointing out just how bad they look today... but thanks for the tip. I might just start playing it again. Pfft at the very least it would give me an excuse to wipe the dust of my PSP.
It also gives more incentive for Sony to start up the series again. Say they do a Jak and Daxter collection and it sells pretty good. They might consider a Jak 4 (I honestly wouldn't want that since the story ended in 3 and it could possibly feel tacked on but I digress).
I disagree. If you could play the games on an HDTV looking exactly how it did when you could play it when it was released I might agree. I try playing the game now on my HDTV and it looks soooo bad, I can't play them.
I'd say Grand Theft Auto, Hitman, Dark Cloud or Disgaea are all examples of games I'd like to see remastered.
Just add backwards compatibility and let the games become nostalgic.
honestly i would much rather have that
i had a PS3 with BC and GoW series, and still got the remake because it was so much better in every aspect
The bluray releases are much better quality.
