The Sly Collection…sneaking into retailers for $39.99!

Jefferson Dong's Avatar Posted by 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.

Okay, I’ve pre-ordered to make sure more of these HD Collections get made. NOW can we get:

Team ICO Collection (for cripes sake, look on Share)
Final Fantasy Collection (FFX, FFX-2 & FFXIII)
Kindom Hearts Collection

Nice! I was worried because Amazon had it for $59.99 since E3.

LokeSTL said:

July 21st, 11:42 am

Oops FFXIII = FFXII. Edit button please!

Tikicobra said:

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?

T3mpr1x said:

Nice! I am definitely a fan of these Collection releases, a great way to experience classics in a new way! 3 platinums is always enticing, too!

ycole11 said:

July 21st, 11:43 am

Great price, I just hope the trophies don’t require the use of 3D or Playstation Move.

Slythex said:

July 21st, 11:44 am

Day 1! Can’t go wrong with $13.33 per game.

StargamerX said:

Ok, now *when* is it coming to retailers? :P

spatsnaz said:

July 21st, 11:45 am

@BlooodyCow I think this is the first time we see a price for it.

And luckily it’s a price I’m happy with. Hoping to pick this up because I never played the Sly Cooper Games. Hopefully SCEE doesn’t fumble with this again. :(

My first dream has realized :D
Now, for my second dream, a Sly 4?

Kchow23 said:

July 21st, 11:46 am

$39.99… sweet, will probably go to $29 after a few weeks like GoW collection

To test further the remastered market, the ICO is must probably a hell yeah that is gonna happen.
The metal gear, final fantasy and what not, all those depends on the sales of this remastered collections, so buy the hell out of them and then you will get all the collections you want and you may not want.

will it be released in EU?

WindedHero said:

July 21st, 11:51 am

I would prefer software emulated backwards compatibility rather than the slow trickle of PS2 remakes.

We need more collections like this. Demonstrate how awesome Playstation’s classic library is while introducing people to great games. Plus, I got a slim so this is the only way I’m gonna enjoy PS2 games upscaled on my PS3. Also, the trophies don’t hurt. Definitely make more of these. Like an Ico/Shadow of the Colossus or a Polyphony Anthology. (BTW, people, they can’t do a Kingdom Hearts or Metal Gear Solid. Those aren’t first party Sony. Not that I wouldn’t mind a classics HD collection from NIS or Katamari Damacy.)

This is awesome especially for people like me who never played the sly games. I will be picking this up at launch. I hope there will be more Collections coming soon after Sly. Okami would be cool, but it’s only one game.

Jasko45 said:

July 21st, 11:53 am

HEY SONY, how bout you just give PS2 emulation for ALL PS3s..

Jasko45 said:

July 21st, 11:54 am

See, SONY, sneaky bastards. Re releasing these PS2 games. While they should just have emulated backwards compatibility for ALL PS3s.

emiru69 said:

A couple of questions:
1) Why in says 60 bucks?
2) This is the release date on December 31, 2020

I can’t wait 10 years!!! You are killing me here!! ^_^

Trixzter7 said:

July 21st, 11:57 am

I don’t mind Sony re-releasing PS2 games in HD.
As long as Kingdom Hearts collection gets made ^_^

MikeJSyndrome said:

July 21st, 11:58 am

$39.99? Holy crap, it would still have been a great deal at $60.! A day 1 purchase from me no doubt. Can’t wait to play all of these in HD!

Ether999 said:

July 21st, 11:59 am

Ico/SotC collection TGS announcement please!

SyphonFusion said:

July 21st, 11:59 am

This game should have been $29.99, all PS2 games should be at least $10 since PSOne games are $5. Adding all three games should be $30 bucks, improving graphics is only a touch up.

FredPunella said:

As someone who missed out on many of the games of the PS2 era, I’m glad Sony has chosen to make remastered collections. So I just wanna say thanks Sony, now, how ’bout an Ico/Shadow of the Colossus remake?

dragonmagician said:

July 21st, 12:12 pm

Good price for 3 games.

Elvick_ said:

July 21st, 12:13 pm

Can’t wait. Sly Cooper rocks. I already have 2 and 3 on PS2, but I want to support one of my favorite franchises from the PS2.

Wild ARMs Collection please. I know it’s unlikely… but I want it.

Gitaroo said:

July 21st, 12:15 pm

NoobianGod said:

July 21st, 12:15 pm

I never played a Sly Cooper game before, but 3 platinum’s, same creators as inFAMOUS, AND now Move support?!

I might be crazy if I pass this up!!!

Superstrokey1123 said:

July 21st, 12:17 pm

Airwalkinman17 said:

3 words:


Other than that. great price point. and will the game at 60fps like the GOW collection?

xuipid said:

July 21st, 12:20 pm

I got burned on the GOW price so I’ll sit this one out for awhile. Never played Sly anyways…

S-E-G said:

July 21st, 12:20 pm

any reason is good reason to jack the price
move is not out yet nor does anyone have a 3d tv
when the price comes down equal to gow collection let me know

Ruffday said:

July 21st, 12:20 pm

When was the decision made to remake these classics, and how long did it take to upgrade? Graphically

Jeigh said:

July 21st, 12:22 pm

@ Jasko

Yep, pretty funny how that worked. Take away the ability to play PS2 games, then release them using the word “remastered.” ‘Course it’s done all the time with video formats. (I’ve compared numerous times and the difference in image really is negligible. I’d prefer they used BDs to stuff entire seasons into one or two discs- like god intended.)


July 21st, 12:22 pm

I never got to really play these on the PS2, but now with the PS3, HD graphics, trophy support, and a GREAT PRICE I am all in!! :)
