Jak and Daxter Collection Hits PS3 February 7th, 100+ Trophies to Collect

Evan Wells's Avatar + Posted by Evan Wells on Jan 24, 2012 // Co-President, Naughty Dog

The wait is almost over, Jak and Daxter fans! I’m happy to announce that Jak and Daxter Collection launches in North America on February 7th. In a few short weeks you’ll be able to score the first three installments of the Jak and Daxter trilogy in one complete PS3 Blu-ray package for just $39.99.

Each game has been fully remastered to feature 720p HD visuals and stereoscopic 3D functionality, and one of the coolest new additions to the titles in Jak and Daxter Collection is the introduction of Trophy support.

Jak and Daxter Collection for PS3

When the series debuted on PS2 over 10 years ago, we didn’t have Trophies. For our jump to PS3, Mass Media crafted custom Trophies for you to earn for all three titles in the collection. The team at Mass Media has created intricate Trophies, each featuring a unique variation on a design theme based around its mission type. There are over 100 to collect including three Platinum Trophies, so you completionists will have hours of Trophy-hunting fun to look forward to.

Here’s a sneak peek at some of the Trophies that will be up for grabs:

Pedal to the Metal Destroy Metal Kor at Nest Gold
Purple Pain Navigate the Purple Precursor Rings Bronze
The Super Orberator Collect 2000 Precursor Orbs Gold
Testosterone Pass the Tests of Manhood Silver
Just the Artifacts Ma’am Find 3 Artifacts in Mountain Temple Bronze
What’s That Smell? Escort Men Through Sewers Bronze
The Beast Beater Destroy Metal Head Beasts Bronze
Gate Crasher Masher Defend Spargus’ Front Gate Bronze

Be sure to track them all down when Jak and Daxter Collection launches on PS3 this February 7th. Happy hunting!

Can’t wait! :D

Though with the trophy sneak peeks, you put both ‘Testosterone’ and ‘Pedal to the Metal’ twice.

    Sorry that was a typo! We’re correcting it. You can only earn each trophy once :)

Best HD collection yet! Cannot wait to play through the whole Jak series again!
But I’m curious: Any hope for Jak X HD coming to PS3?

Hey, Evan, any chance of Jak and Daxter or The Last of Us stuff for UC3 multiplayer?

I’d love to play as Joel, or put Jak’s goggles on my custom hero.

+ spoonTRex on January 24th, 2012 at 9:45 am said:

Yeah, uh, thanks for the trophies and all, but I’m going to say that being remastered in 720p HD, stereoscopic 3D, and having all three games on one scratch-resiliant blu-ray disc are far cooler additions than trophies. Far. Cooler.

Day one buy!

I heard there might be a Vita version of this coming as well, any news on that?

@ItaChu Shadow of the Colossus in 3D is amazing. Best use of 3D I’ve seen so far for a game. Arkham City and other games using the Unreal Engine have weird effects going on around the characters thanks to the shaders used that have turned me off from using 3D with them.

I can’t wait to pick this up when it gets released! I think it may have to be After I pick up Twisted Metal though. So many releases in February, including the Vita! Is there any word at all about a Ratchet and Clank Collection!?

Is it really fair to call this an HD collection, seeing as it’s obviously not running in 720p?

Is there any chance or even rumor that this collection might make its way to the Vita? MGS HD Collection and other ports have me pretty darn hopeful. I might actually hold off on buying this game if that ends up being the case.

I already have this pre-ordered and paid! The receipt is still in my wallet waiting for two more weeks to pass.

I know this is definitely too early but if this HD collection sells well enough, do you think there’s a chance for a Jak and Daxter Volume 2 HD collection? Ya know, similar to God of War Origins?

I ask because Sony still have three more Jak games for the PS2/PSP they could remaster for the PS3 (e.g. Jak X: Racing, Daxter, and Jak and Daxter: The Lost Frontier). The more Jak and Daxter, the better! :D

Please, please, please bring this to Vita. OMG that would be so amazing. Also, R&C HD collection on PS3/Vita would be insta-buy as well!

+ ramankhutu on January 24th, 2012 at 11:26 am said:

Really hoping I’ll be able to buy just the first game on PSN. I’d probably spend $15 for Jak and Daxter and maybe $20 for the whole collection. Those other games were just not very good.

+ jac_richardson on January 24th, 2012 at 11:41 am said:

Resistance 3 has good 3D, the graphics are good, but they aren’t incredible and there is the occasional grainy looking object, but the 3D is stable, consistant and well implemented. Cutscenes 3D is very subtle, but the 3D is alot better than Killzone 3 or god of war origins.in very heated battle, the game occasionally freezes for a moment, but I don’t mind because it usually freezes in very cool looking 3D poses.

Is this going to be HD for release because SCEA PR’s “January” screenshot batch still suggests otherwise.

Sub-HD with no anti-aliasing, it’s SCE’s poorest “HD” remaster by far. Very disappointing.


46

+ TomHoang on January 24th, 2012 at 11:49 am said:

I can’t wait to pick this up, but the box art looks kinda dumb to me. It’s lame that the background art and Jak 3 are exactly the same. They should also switch the positions of Jak 1 and Jak 2, it’s strange seeing Jak 1 in the middle. I’m just nitpicking, but I can’t wait to play these games for the first time and get 3 more platinums =]

+ Shin-Ra on January 24th, 2012 at 11:53 am said:

Adding to my previous comments, I bought the God of War Collection (I+II), Sly Collection and ICO & Shadow of the Colossus Collection all day one and intend to buy the God of War Origins Collection at some point.

I’ve skipped poorly remastered games like Resident Evil 4 + Code Veronica X and will skip this if it turns out to have the poor image quality portrayed in the trailer and screenshots to date.

+ plaztiksyke on January 24th, 2012 at 12:08 pm said:

If this is another phone-in like the Sly Cooper collection, I’ll be skipping it. Most of us don’t care about 3D — we want 1080p native rendering, higher-resolution textures based on original art assets, and tweaked character models. While Ico & SoTC had a few much-needed model tweaks here and there, the massive amounts of repeated low-res textures were plain distracting on a big screen (50″ plasma). The same things that were tolerable even 10 years ago on 30″ SDTVs are simply unacceptable now.

@45, I’m with you buddy. We know it doesn’t take significantly more effort to do these better, but hopefully Naughty Dog had more say about quality-control. At the very least, let’s hope they don’t just repackage 11khz mono audio assets with crazy EQ settings.
