Sony: We'll do HD remakes where there's 'demand', 'a sense of franchise'

Sony will choose to release more PS3 HD collections if there's "significant demand" and "a sense of franchise," SCE Europe boss Andrew House has told CVG.

Kingdom Hearts 1 and 2 would make a nice little package.

Maybe, if they can, throw in all the other KH games that have came out's doubtful they could remaster 358/2 days or Dream Drop Distance but maybe in the future just before KH3 comes out.

It's ridiculous how we have to keep going pltform to platform to play the games so don't get confused in KH3's story. I mean Dream Drop Distance apparently is the follow up to KH3 and it's for the 3DS, where KH3 will be on the PS3.

Hell I was confused in KH2, then I played Chain of memories which allowed me to enjoy KH2 story more.

does that in some way devalue the originals? I like the remastered ones myself but as a collector too I tend to think the more something is made (or remade) the more the value drops for the original.

Sony has done a good job with the god of war pack and sly cooper one. Fitting multiple games into the remastered release is better for the consumer (getting more for the $$). Plus it saves me from having to possibly damage my originals.

Please make GTA3,Vice,San an ....i'LL Suck Yo' D!** Sony ... Please, id be very Gratefull ... Hey who want Burgers?

Elyxir-pSx2677d ago (Edited 2677d ago )

FF7: Crisis Core is one of my favorite PSP games, It's a great game, Make a PSP HD remaster.

hiredhelp2677d ago


thats just wrong. man what a way to start my day by reading that.

StbI9902677d ago (Edited 2677d ago )

@Bullshift...LOOOOOOOOL, funniest, and u'll swallaw man.

Loool at people willing for a UNCHARTED RACING GAME...that sounds soooo gay xD

EVILDEAD3602677d ago

Hell yeah..I'd pay big money for a HD Double pack of Vice City and San fact I might suffer a minor stroke after hearing the news..

I'd even take a Resident evil 1 & 2 HD

Point Blank 1 & 2 HD with Move support (for all those old head gamers that remember Guncon)

Kings Field 1 & 2 (I would cry)

For the 360 Otogi 1 and 2, Knight of the old republic 1 & 2

Nintendo better HD EVERYTHING when Wii U comes out..that would sell the hardware day ONE

I honestly could care less..Shadow of the Collosus in September..NOTHING else matters


killcycle2677d ago

Point Blank 1,2,3 & Ghoul Panic with MOVE SUPPORT in HD.

Thats what ps3 needs, them games were the hardest and most exciting arcade shooters of the generation.

I wish They patched Ps1 support so that the Move could act as the G-Con gun for These games because i got all these games but i can't use move for them!

gta28002677d ago

Can we request PS1 remakes? lol. It doesn't seem I'm ever gonna get my dream Legend of Dragoon 2, so a LOD1 remake will do just fine if that's all I can have :P

featherbottom2677d ago


Yeah, you're absolutely right that it might devalue the originals.

But I honestly don't give a damn in the slightest.
I (along with, presumably, the vast majority of others) would rather play through the games that defined our young adulthood than to miss out because of a small handful of collectors pissing their pants.

I haven't been able to play MGS 2 or 3 or Devil May Cry 1, 2 or 3 or Ico or Shadow of the Collossus in more than half a decade and I'm missing them already. I don't care how much of a contrived money-grab this is by Sony, I still want to play these tiny chunks of my childhood regardless. These games are some of the best made in video game history, are absolute classics and need to be easily accessed by anyone who gives a damn about games in general.

In short: Do. Want.

Sony will choose to release more PS3 HD collections if there's "significant demand" and "a sense of franchise,"

Translation: Sony will choose to release more PS3 HD collections if there's a possibility of promoting a new game that's releasing soon!

Notice only games that are seeing sequels soon get the treatment!

gaffyh2677d ago

That would be pretty good, but Jak & Daxter is the one I want most.

CaptainPunch2677d ago

This needs to happen, same with a Jak and Dexter collection.

CNXN2677d ago

KH and JAK AND MUTHAFUCKIN DAXTER collection and im a happy gamer

showtimefolks2677d ago

ask RS to do gta hd remakes with 3,vc and sa along with 2 psp gta games for full $60. 5 games for full game price.

Jak all 4 games from ps3 that ND made in HD i know the 4th is combat racing i want that too

all 4 ratchet games from ps2 with their online content if possible in hd

KH 1-2....THIS will happen but i doubt it will only be on ps3 i think it will be for xbox360 and ps3 like mgs and zoe series.(i could careless as long as we get to play it in hd)

FF7....I am not much of a ff fan but when ever i see a wish list for hd remakes this is on it so make some fans happy

mgs psp on psn maybe?

Andronix2677d ago

GTA 3 HD Collection is needed. But how about Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic 1&2 HD? Originally released on Xbox 1, they are two fantastic RPGs that deserve to be played again. And there is a sense of franchise as there is the new Star Wars MMO coming out (although not on PlayStation).

Kran2678d ago (Edited 2678d ago )



Seriously Please sony :(

I mean, here's a plan they could do for Ratchet and Clank.

Ratchet and Clank: HD Trilogy #1

Ratchet and Clank
Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando
Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal


Ratchet and Clank: HD Trilogy #2

Ratchet: Deadlocked
Ratchet & Clank: Size Matters
Secret Agent Clank

I mean since they're doing PSP remakes, they might as well ;)

@squall @croash why thank you ;)

Squall50052678d ago

I like your thinking. Bubbles for you my friend

Croash2678d ago (Edited 2678d ago )


They did a nice move with Sly, now they have to bring his friends back!

Ratchet : Going Commando > Ratchet : Up Your Arsenal > Other Ratchet games = HD remake is greatly needed.

Jak of course needs to get a moment of glory to make everyone forget about the disaster The Lost Frontier was and encourage Naughty Dog to make Jak 4 before Uncharted 4 *cough cough* Uncharted Racing.

Edit: I was actually surprised that these 2 collection didn't get an E3 2011 announcement. It was really disappointing as I really expected everyone to go all out with HD collections (and we certainly have a few interesting ones coming soon).

@Squall5005, Kingdom Hearts Collection will surely come to accompany Kingdom Hearts 3. The question is, will it include Birth by Sleep HD?

PirosThe4th2678d ago

Uncharted Racing... you read my mind... I want Uncharted racing with CTR style gameplay...

Croash2678d ago

I'd really love it if Naughty Dog announces Uncharted Racing on April, 1st 2012.
With a trailer of course.

That would be EXTREEEEEME.

moparful992677d ago

Is it just me or does nobody desire to see the crash bandicoot series recieve a comeback?? I miss those games and its what put naughty dog on the map...

dredgewalker2677d ago

I want HD remakes of Zone of Enders 1& and Onimusha 1-3.

nopunctuation2677d ago

You want to crop that ps1 game to 1080p? That would not work out well...

NegativeCreep4272677d ago (Edited 2677d ago )

Hopefully FF7 will be remastered and will be represented to satisfy the current expectations of the current generation. SE had just recently stated that it is still a very plausible possibility.

I personally feel that FF7 was a major landmark in the original Playstation's library. Even if every mechanic of the original FF7 was not modified and left still in the new remake; the Materia system and world map and everything. It would still be a worthy, million-selling product. At least for the real Final Fantasy fans that remember all the good way before FFXIII.

FFXI1012677d ago

Numbner one on my list...

SaiyanFury2677d ago

I'll be honest and I don't know how some peoples' reactions will be: I would love to see a remake of FF7, I really would. But it's unrealistic. It would take a lot of manpower, a lot of time (over 5 years), and a lot of money. I've been researching this topic and how unlikely it is to happen, and I just don't see it. It would take a crapload of work to take a game that is a semi-hybrid of 2D handdrawn background an environments to bring it into complete 3D and HD. Series' like Ratchet & Clank, and Jak & Daxter are already fully 3D, as was the recently released Sly Cooper HD Collection. Would I like to see a remake of FFVII? Absolutely. Do I think it's realistic to expect one? No. Just my two cents, please take it for what you will.

dmc-run2677d ago

Word up

Ratchet & clank and Jak & Daxter are the remakes I want the most

KozmoOchez2677d ago

I have yet to buy a ps3 ratchet and clank game...although I've played and beat them, I won't purchase them until they get on the level of Up Your Arsenal...or unless they do an HD remake with functioning online.

I can't believe they dropped the multiplayer from UYA/Deadlocked. It was sooo awesome, nothing compares and Resistance MP/Coop aren't as fun imo

Eric Barrier2677d ago

Yeah and they could do a
Jak & Daxter: Trilogy #1
Jak & Daxter: The Precursor Legacy
Jak 2
& Jak 3

Then a Jak & Daxter: Trilogy #2
Jak X (Hopefully with online)
Jak & Daxter: The Lost Frontier

heyitsmichelle2677d ago

I agree to the first trilogy you mentioned, but not the second one.

Cloudberry2678d ago

Devil May Cry HD Collection & Final Fantasy X, X2, XII HD Collection.

My wishes already came true with Metal Gear 2 & 3 + Peace Walker HD Collection, along with Silent Hill & Zone Of Enders HD thank you very much Konami & Hideo Kojima.

newhumanbreed2678d ago

DMC HD has been spotted by a Spanish retailer, so that wish may come true as well :)

SpaceFox2677d ago


Square better release an HD Collection with FFX, X-2 and XII. I would die of a heart attack when it's announced but it'd still be worth it.

Other than that the only ones that havent been announced that I desperately want are Jak and Ratchet&Clank.

kane_13712677d ago

oh man you just said it.
I want 12 badly, I somehow enjoyed it more than 7 and slightly more than first game

Zir02678d ago

The main remain remakes are from 3rd parties now GTA, FF, Kingdom Hearts and Persona all need HD remakes and hopefully they will follow Konami and bring them to the 360 as well since Sony doesn't have the rights to them.

XabiDaChosenOne2678d ago

They have the publishing rights Kingdom hearts 1 and 2 so you might be out of luck buddy :-)

Seijoru2678d ago

Someone is butthurt he won't be getting these collections for his precious 360.

jneul2677d ago

dream on ziro ff and kingdome hearts wont be coming to 360, just buy a ps3 already coz you know its better:-D
