These two games make a superb collection which are highly recommended at a mere $40. Even if you already own copies of both games, you’d do well to pick it up for the HD, stereoscopic 3D, and Trophy support at such a bargain price. ~Josh Laddin
Can't wait to pick this up tomorrow.
Definatley getting this upon release...cannot wait to play these two games again
$40? No no no. I'm getting them from Gamefly. Thanks for asking though. If I hand't played them before then maybe I would pay for it. But Dark Souls and Rage are coming out next week. Need to save some scratch for those.
If nothing else, you should get it to support Team Ico so they can keep making games like this and The Last Guardian. But if you're strapped for cash, then your point is well taken. I'd still pick this one up as soon as possible though.
From a consumer point of view I have a hard time buying ANY game no matter how good if I have the option of renting it. I do understand your point about supporting the dev studio, but I care about my bottom line more than theirs when it comes down to it. I could afford to buy every decent game coming and going if I wanted to. But that is only because I DON'T buy every game coming and going, you know what I mean? A penny saved is a penny earned my friend.
JsonHenry, You're basically helping instrument the shift of the games industry from creative titles like ICO and SotC, to carbon copy crap like annual CoD. Like it or not, only the mouth of the individual consumer has voice, in this regard -- no huge entity will come in and save the day. You buy, and reward the devs you like, hoping that others will do the same, or you let them be destroyed and replaced by garbage. There is no inbetween. Those are the only 2 options. Games, particularly classics like these, retain resale value for a long while. Spend the $40, and if you truly regret it someday, sell the game for $20 down the road.
great games to play. Classics!
The originals are two of the PS2's best games ever. They both deserve these re-releases because not nearly enough people played them in their heyday, especially ICO.
I have too many games right now. Deus Ex, Resistance 3, Catherine, Dead Island, and Gears 3. I'll have to wait to pick this up.
I don't know if I can buy this, I still have my PS2 and a copy of each game. Still... maybe... darn lack o' monies
classic like a throwback hat
