Awesome, I only played SotC and I’m looking forward to play it again in HD and to finally play ICO

But I have a favor to ask.. Would you guys please make an original cover for this? Now I realize why the GoW collection cover was the way it is, marketing and all, but it didn’t make it any less crap. The thing to realize about the Team Ico collection however, is they won’t sell much to mainstream folks, regardless of Move and 3D support and all.

So please, get us an epic cover like the original SotC cover, or the Euro/Japanese ICO cover.
Or, at least, put an alternative cover on the inside, or make limited edition, I’d pay $99 for that

Shadow of the Colossus isn’t even a game – it’s an experience.

You have no idea how much I loved ICO when I first played it. I played it straight through for 9 hours and was left speechless. I loved SotC just as much. Oh man. This news… there are no words. I’m SO HAPPY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D :D :D :D :D

THANK YOU TEAM ICO and Fumito Ueda!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Are Team Ico doing this port themselves, or is it done by another studio like the GoW and Sly collections?

Spajdah said:

Hehe good for me :D I havent even played those two games :) Now i can experience them in HD :) Was the same with God Of War 1/2 havent played them either :) But played GOW HD Collection ofc :)

Is the US remake of Ico going to be like the superior EU version?

starBlinky01 said:

September 16th, 2:52 am

Ah crap, I will probably buy this next year when there’s a slow game release window. Too many good games coming out very soon.

But I have looked for Ico for a long time.. you can’t find it any where, in fact I looked online for it and apparently its a rare collectors item, it goes for hundreds on eBay.

I can hardly wait to play these on PS3. They were/are so beautiful on PS2.
One question about ICO; will this be the “complete” version of ICO with all the stuff the North American version was unable to get because of time constraints?

anticulture said:

September 16th, 3:22 am

Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you…

I will be purchasing at least two copies. Possibly three. Of those three, two of them would be sealed away, presumably forever.

Please, for the love of god, create a classy cover for this release. No NA ICO box art, no generic box art like the God of War Collection.

Class it up, Sony.

Well once more I’m glad I never had a ps2, I’ll get to play this in HD now :P GoW collection was nice.

ill finaly get to play these games now in HD awesome cant wait to see wat all the hubub is all about lol

barnaclejoe said:

September 16th, 4:05 am

with… …3d?! DAMN! I hope I’ll get to experience that one day. Cool idea, Sony!

I own both games, but I’m buying it again, just because sometimes you have to do that for things you love. :P

I know this is a seemingly minor quibble, but could the boxart please be artistic and beautiful? I am sure you were alerted about the Kotaku article condemning the ‘leaked box art’… I know that isn’t confirmed as the box art, but I really hope it isn’t. I’d love something far more beautiful and classy and mature.. something on par with the actual experience of the game. Possible?

<3 Love these games.

Please Sony, do not give this collection such ugly box art as the God of War collection. Probably one of the most hideous box arts you have made yet – looks like a student’s first Photoshop project.

Kamiboy said:

September 16th, 4:37 am

Well, if anything that God of War collection that I thought I really wanted only reaffirmed my sentiments that all games should be played on their original hardware.

But I will be picking these titles up just so that I can support them one more time.

Joe-TFW said:

Two games that deserved so much more attention when they were initially released. I hope gamers take notice this time. This is a bundle that should not be passed up under any circumstances.

I want the missing colossi in the game.

Anddo said:

September 16th, 5:11 am

So awesome! These are my two favorite games of all time, and the only reason why I still game today. Even though I still own both games.. ICO/Sotc (and TLG) are easily my most anticipated games.

Sindred said:

September 16th, 5:12 am

I got a 3D TV, but I can’t handle this in 3D… Wow, that is just going to be,… wow.

I never played either of the games on the PS2, but I might consider buying this as well as that upcoming The Last Guardian game on the PS3.

Also, when are we getting HD Collections for:

Kingdom Hearts
Devil May Cry
Team Clover Studio (Okami, Viewtiful Joe, Viewtiful Joe 2)
Mega Man + Mega Man X
Final Fantasy (PS2 series)

Oh baby.. I cannot wait to get my grubby little mitts on this. I remember the first Colossus I came to on my ps2..hooked up to a rather small standard tv at the time. Now to think about re living that in the glory that is my fairly large hd tv… I’m losing my freaking mind it’s so awesome.

Zezzler said:

Day one purchase. its just fan-FREEKIN-tastic!

September 16th, 5:32 am

This is going to be awesome! Too bad I’m not buying a 3D TV just yet. :( Too expensive for my budget. :'(

RogueNinja_MKA said:

September 16th, 5:40 am

OK good Sony, other games that would be awesome to re-release in HD Omimusha collection,Devil May Cry collection,and Final Fantasy X and X-2 collection

RogueNinja_MKA said:

September 16th, 6:15 am

omg! Best news ever. Please get Japanese third parties involved, I’d kill for a KINGDOM HEARTS COLLECTION.

*throws money at Sony*

Sindred said:

September 16th, 6:17 am

To be 100% honest, I would not want SOTC in 60fps. I am definitely glad for the 30fps locked, but 60fps would take away some of that film look and make it way too sharp. It needs a bit of that motionblur look.

EmoSaga said:

September 16th, 6:22 am

AHHHHHHhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! MUST PRE-ORDER! <3 Day-One-Purchase! Platinum Trophy!!! MUST GET.

Berae said:

September 16th, 6:30 am

I cant wait for this and the Last guardian!!!

Grinchy said:

September 16th, 6:31 am

Wow this is so bought. I’ve never gotten farther than the 10th colossus or so before getting frustrated with the performance of SOTC.

Sponge-worthy said:

September 16th, 6:40 am

Locked 30fps for these titles is the way to go for these particular titles. Can’t wait.
