PS4 - The Last of Us Remastered

The Sly Collection…sneaking into retailers for $39.99!

Jefferson Dong's Avatar + Posted by Jefferson Dong on Jul 21, 2010 // Product Marketing Manager, SCEA

While fans may know Sly Cooper best for his sneaky and stealthy exploits on PlayStation 2, his latest heist will be on PlayStation 3 this fall in The Sly Collection with three re-mastered classics in HD…for less than the price of most retail games! We’re excited to announce that following in the tradition of the God of War Collection, The Sly Collection will be available this fall for just $39.99 MSRP.

The Sly Collection 11

And what does that one-penny-less-than-40 price tag get you? Let’s start with all three original Sly Cooper titles…this includes Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus, Sly 2: Band of Thieves and Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves, all re-mastered in glorious HD graphics.

Next, Sanzaru Games has added 3D support for all 3 games, as well as new PlayStation Move mini-games which you’ll be hearing more details about very soon. And finally, PSN trophy support will be integrated into the entire collection, with three platinum trophies up for grabs.

The Sly Collection 9 The Sly Collection 2

Sly’s return to PlayStation couldn’t be more grand, and The Sly Collection couldn’t be more complete. We’ll be showing off The Sly Collection this week at San Diego Comic-Con (July 22-25), so be sure to come over to the PlayStation booth and check it out. And, as always, keep coming back to the blog for more information about the The Sly Collection.

@Superstrokey1123: The price was initially $39.99 for the God of War Collection. I waited until it dropped to $29.99 before I picked it up. :)

Oh, and since Sony is busy making HD Collections then why don’t you talk with Sega to make a Yakuza 1 & 2 HD Collection? Those 2 games came out in America around the same time that the PS3 came out so hype was taken away by the PS3. On top of that, Yakuza 1 freezes indefinitely once you reach a certain part on the backwards compatible 80GB PS3. Seeing as how people are so hyped into getting trophies & HD Collections these days then Yakuza 1 & 2 is perfect for it especially with people not wanting to play future Yakuza games until they’ve played the first 2 that they missed out on.

Oh, and have them make Shenmue 3 for PS3 while they’re at it. <_<

why don’t U bring back PS2 playback on my PS3 so I play the games I (paid for) back in the day instead of recharging me $40 so I can just throw my PS2 games in the trash. Great Idea wish I would have thought of that.

Great price – can’t wait! I never played through all the Sly games, so this will be a great way to experience the trilogy.

Pretty sweet. Can’t wait to play these games for the first time.

I am so happy that you are keeping with tradition and only charging $39.99. This is an AMAZING price for three games like Sly Coopers. I played all three, and will be playing them all over again once this is released. Thank you guys so much for picking the Sly Cooper series as one of the first major collections to be re-mastered for the PS3. If you have never played these games, and like platformers then this is a MUST BUY/DAY 1 BUY.

P.S.
Now the only other collection that I would be willing to perform dirty deeds get released is a “Maximo: Collection”.

i’m a big fan of these collections and of sly, and i look forward to getting it.


67

+ JDufous823 on July 21st, 2010 at 1:35 pm said:

The price is better than the usual $60 and for three games that makes the price even better. But since I have all the original sly games whats the point in buying the new ones for any reason other than the trophies.Oh well, I’m gonna pre-order it.


68

+ nfalk on July 21st, 2010 at 1:37 pm said:

I completely agree w/ IrishHater. The Sly Cooper and Maximo games were among the best of PS2. I also played through all three Sly games and I loved them; one of a select few series where I didn’t get bored by the end of the game/series. I will definitely be getting this, especially since it has Trophy support.

I would love to see the Maximo Collection and FFVII remastered.

Thats great.
I want Jak&Daxter HD on this series! Please…. :)

+ thatprguy on July 21st, 2010 at 1:49 pm said:

We do need a Kingdom Hearts Collection. There are so many games that for them to be in one place would be amazing! As for this, I don’t know if I’ll get it, but I want to so bad.


73

+ NESGamepro on July 21st, 2010 at 1:52 pm said:

Very nice. I’m getting it for sure. Trophy hunters will be all over this one.

@22 Okami may be one game but a Clover Collection is good thinking.

@Everyone Mein gott, I had no idea there were so many Kingdom Hearts fans!

+ John_Oval on July 21st, 2010 at 2:37 pm said:

Jak and daxter would be awesome! The only one I completed was the original, now add trophies and widescreen, hell id buy it like crazy.

Also when is this coming out? Im assuming septemberish?

+ tigown on July 21st, 2010 at 3:03 pm said:

Perfect price. If I didn’t have a good working PS2, and all 3 games, I’d definitely buy it.

‘TIMESPLITTERS’ Collection i would LOVE! :P

But i don’t think it would ever happen :(

Any chance of bringing back FULL PS2 playback to a new PS3 SONY? I want to play my 65’ish PS2 games on just 1 console.

good job adding 3d support for all three games now. 3d content is pretty scarce and i need some stuff to play in 3d on my new tv


87

+ clupula668 on July 21st, 2010 at 5:47 pm said:

I will definitely be picking these up now, at $40. I had heard $60 before and that was a bit much for PS2 games, but at $40, definitely.

As for Metal Gear and Final Fantasy collections, those aren’t Sony titles. You’d have to ask Konami and Square-Enix for those.

+ MadmanV10 on July 21st, 2010 at 6:10 pm said:

You people complaining about 39.99 for THREE full-fledged, 20-30+ hour games, each with their own Platinum trophy are our of your bloody minds.

Go expect the impossible somewhere else.

This is the same price as the GoW collection, and no one seemed to mind then.

At the end of the day, you lose for complaining because the Sly series is just one of the many AAA franchises Sony has fostered over the years. I just hope this is a sign of things to come, and not a simple trickle of HD remakes.


89

+ MadmanV10 on July 21st, 2010 at 6:12 pm said:

Though question for whoever feels like answering: trophies require the use of Move controller?

If so, thats a deal breaker, and you can bet most people won’t be willing to support this collection if you’re going to REQUIRE the purchase of 50 dollar controllers and 100 dollar cameras.

+ midnightshade on July 21st, 2010 at 6:58 pm said:

You see sony how much we love the classic series, now bring more ps1 stuff to the store while your at it (not games like motor toon..lol)

95

+ QUINTISON on July 21st, 2010 at 9:10 pm said:

So many possible collections sony could release :Disgaea,level V’s
dark cloud 1 ,2 and rouge galaxy,Ratchet,jack 1-3+x,metal gear,team ico titles,katimari.

Anything with 2 or more games in a series can be made into a collection and i’d stick with $39 HD widescreen,trophies and move support where it makes sense.

@Tikicobra:
“Sly Cooper is awesome.

But why, of all games, is this series getting a collection first? Why would you choose this over a Team ICO collection or a Metal Gear Solid collection?”

The Team ICO collection won’t appear until a few months before The Last Guardian, to build hype for that title (see: the release date of the GoW collection).

A Metal Gear Solid collection is very, very unlikely to happen because, unlike with GoW, Sly and ICO, Sony does not own the publishing rights.

+ JaguarCRO on July 21st, 2010 at 10:05 pm said:

Sly Cooper is getting a collection because the rights are easier to get than Metal Gear Solid and it supports their 3D initiative and it has been a longer time interval since the last release (Sly 3 came out in September of ’05)

The Team ICO collection will come out as a promotional effort several months before the Last Guardian. This was the very successful formula they followed for God of War Collection and God of War 3 and they will use it again.
