Revisiting Hillys: Beyond Good & Evil HD Coming to PSN Next Week

Alex Monney's Avatar + Posted by Alex Monney on Jun 22, 2011 // PR Specialist, Ubisoft

The time has almost come for you to join Jade on her quest to uncover a planet-wide alien conspiracy. For those of you that are new to Beyond Good & Evil, you will be able to partake in a hidden gem that 1UP says is “still a treasure today.” For the veterans of the series, you’ll experience the best version of Beyond Good & Evil HD that we have to offer, including updated visuals and audio. Still don’t believe me?! Well, check out our new trailer including a handful of our favorite review quotes:

As a quick reminder, we will be offering two free PlayStation Network avatars for all purchasers who pick up Beyond Good & Evil HD within the first two weeks of launch. I personally will be switching my avatar to Pey’j (he’s a pig with a wrench… what’s not to like?!).

Keep your eyes out for Beyond Good & Evil HD to hit the PlayStation Network next Tuesday for $9.99.

Hey, Ubisoft dude, thanks for the $10 Assassins Creed on PSN. Best ten buck game ever. I want to know all of the Assassin universe before Revelations.

    Assassin’s Creed is definitely one of those games you get sucked into. Glad you enjoyed it.

    Also, nice avatar! :)

How is this “the best version”? Dont tell me that a couple of avatars makes this “the best version”. Im gonna assume that was a typo.

Yakuza 3 just took my hard drive space, so I hope my bigger hard drive gets here by then so I can see what all the fuss is about this game on the first day of release. It looks fun.

I loved this on PS2, but at the time, was annoyed that it was in widescreen, since at the time, television sets with that ratio were an expensive rarity. I’ll definately buy this on PSN to play it again.

I couldn’t wait and tried out the demo from the German PSN, and it is off-the-hook AMAZING. $10 is a great price point for the value delivered. It is great to see Ubisoft put a little more work into this than the PoP HD versions, which I felt could have used a little more texture re-authoring and a LOT more re-encodes of video and audio from original assets.

The half-spoken/half-read dialogue is a little irksome, but that’s the way the original game was with all it’s charm. I personally like reading dialogue better sometimes, like in Costume Quest and Stacking, since the comedy can sometimes work better that way.

Great job, Ubisoft!

No Platinum trophy = No sale. Of all the games to not have a platinum, why did it have to be this one? And why is it always 12 trophies per downloaded PSN game? You stingy , evil monkeys!!

One more thing, Will Assassin’s Creed 2 be available for $9.99 again? I had no idea it was on sale a few weeks back and thought it was a permanent price drop. So, I unfortunately missed out. I never saw a notice of any kind.

I’ll buy it anyhow because it’s one of my favorite games ever, but it’s kinda lame to be a Plus member, being told we’ll get a discount, and now, nope, no discount.

+ Skeetlejuice on June 22nd, 2011 at 9:04 pm said:

Hi everyone,

Are you ready for two more rounds of new PlayStation Plus content? Well, April continues to be the biggest Plus month ever in terms of content offerings with some huge discounts and free games coming your way over the next two weeks! As announced on the PlayStation Europe blog last week, we’ve secured a deal with Ubisoft to offer all Plus subscribers 20% discounts on the games Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes (available now), Outland (coming April 26), and Beyond Good and Evil (coming this May).

so i’m not buying this for 10, back up your promises sony.

Patience brings rewards. ^_^ This is a great game and I can’t wait until it’s release. Everyone has to play this, so as soon as I buy the hd version I’m lending out my ps2 version to all of my friends.

I’m glad the video game industry is starting to recognize their vast history of games with these re-releases. All too often gamers are forced to shuffle through used and scratched copies to find gems that should be treasured.

+ JWSThree on June 22nd, 2011 at 10:41 pm said:

Thank you for getting this release lined up for us, I am looking forward to playing it. I hope that the 20% discount for Plus will apply when this hits the store!

Hey US folks.
Just so you know, $9.99 roughly equates to £6.23 which is approximately the price we pay in UK *AFTER* the Plus discount.
You may still think you should also get the 20% discount, but I’d forego any Plus discounts to enjoy the prices you guys pay. :)

@79: thanks for that perspective. Won’t stop the whiners, but thx. O, kudos to Scotland Yard for arresting the Playstation hacker, allegedly.

@73: I agree, I appreciate the reissues so newer gamers like me can play great games that were originally on an older console. Gaming democracy! Except for Uncharted. And InFamous. D@mn on losing Demon/Dark Souls exclusivity. I hope they reissue Okami, too.

Hey Ubisoft dude: I forgot to say that Ubisoft won E3. Incredible presentation. Oh, for my peeps I mean won E3 after Sony of course.

Well according to this post :

http://blog.us.playstation.com/2011/04/13/coming-to-playstation-plus-tom-clancys-rainbow-six-vegas-2-red-johnsons-chronicles-and-more/

dated april 13th (before the outage)

“As announced on the PlayStation Europe blog last week, we’ve secured a deal with Ubisoft to offer all Plus subscribers 20% discounts on the games Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes (available now), Outland (coming April 26), and Beyond Good and Evil (coming this May)”

So youre saying the discount thats clearly stated there is writing no longer applies even though, EU got that discount… . So not only do US PSN members have to wait 3 weeks after EU to get the game we also dont get the 20% discount (for ps+) member that we were supposed to get (according to that blog post)? Yeah thats fair.

2 free avatars is not a good incentive to re-buy a game. How about a discount for owning the original?

Where’s the patch for the bugged inverted controls? Ubisoft’s technical support promised this would be fixed, the community waited but no patch was ever released and now even the PSN version has the exact same bugs? I guess the ending sequence is still bugged as well then? It’s pathetic how Ubisoft has completely ignored any and all of the feedback the community provided for the HD conversion, both before and after the launch.
