Rumour – Third mystery PS3 HD collection to be announced alongside Sly, Team Ico tonight

Here we go, kids. A Sly Cooper Collection’s set to be announced tonight alongside a possible reveal of The Team Ico Collection.

Once more, there will also be a third HD reboot at Sony’s press conference, VG247 has learned.

Showfloor shots of Sony’s booth, taken by 1UP which have since disappeared, showed that the Sly Collection would be in 3D as well.

It comes as we were told by sources a couple of weeks ago that the PS2 Team Ico titles, Ico and Shadow of the Colossus, would be coming. No guesses where the announcement would be made.

As for the identity of that third HD collection, that one remains unknown.

But that’s not all: it looks like Patapon 3 will be announced on PS3, as well as Twisted Metal X, according to Kotaku.

To add the icing on top, Eyepet for PSP will be revealed, with PSP title Invizimals going the other way to PS3.

Boom.

Sony’s press conference will take place at the Shrine Auditorium from 12pm PST/8pm BST tonight. Stay tuned.

    Ooo, never played Sly Cooper the first time round. Got heaps of loving from the EG masses, so I’d be tempted by that.

    Think Sony have the right idea with these HD re-release collections.

    Metal Gear Collection is my guess, you heard it here first.

    *this is my guess, I have no inside info.

    I wonder if these collections factered into the drop of BC for the PS3?

    Lower the manufacturing cost of the system

    +

    allows them to rerelease the games and make cash off of their sale.

    Whereas I think Sony have the wrong idea with the HD re-release collections. The games they’re bundling are generally only a few years old, and if they hadn’t taken out the damned backwards compatibility you’d be able to play your existing PS2 copies!

    Give up with the rehashes and do more new stuff, says I.

    Wouldn’t be surprised if that’s right JA… especially given the countdown.

    Jak and Daxter probably.

    I’ve played, loved and completed all those however so I won’t be buying.

    Sly and Ico on the other hand… Sony, you have my coinage.

    You’re all part of the problem, you know! :-D

    @Blerk

    ‘Do more new stuff…’

    I think it would be fair to level that criticism against Sony if they were treading water else where.

    Sony have introduced the most new and critically acclaimed IPs this gen.

    The re-releasing (or re-hashing as you put it) of PS2 serves as a cherry on top of the PS3′s solid library.

    @Blerk
    The God of War HD collection is fantastic though. Great smooth gameplay and it looks a lot better than the PS2 games playing in BC mode.

    I think Sony had a good go at doing a software B/C solution and found it was reasonable but not something that could be released as not enough titles would work well enough. This approach is the compromise. Enhanced titles which run on some form of emulation to minimise dev effort.

    MGS (please with mgs 1 PLEASE) rerelease would get me to buy this :)

    The others no:
    i was never really that bothered bout sly cooper
    i have ico/sotc on ps2 but haven’t got round to playing them yet (my secret shame *sobs*)

    Every PS3 owner would buy a HD Metal gear triple pack at a bargin price. I’d love to play through 2 and 3 again

    @16 WHAT!!!!!!!!!!

    #17 5 years ago
  18. Erthazus

    I would not buy actually, if it has no extra content.

    If you want to make a MGS HD, make it a REAL HD. With MGS 4, Rising graphics.

    “Every PS3 owner would buy a HD Metal gear triple pack at a bargin price.”

    I wouldn’t. :)

    Sony’s first-party support has been excellent, onlineatron. But if they’d cut all the rehashes they could’ve probably dragged together enough cash for another one. :-)

    the sony feedback blog was an excellent idea and i think some of the fans request might get a mention tonight.

    #22 5 years ago
  23. get2sammyb

    @14 – Exactly. I love these collections. Budget-price, remastered for HD, with trophies on top. They’re not meant to be some “GOOD GRIEF MEGATON ZOMG” announcement. They’re fan service, and long may they continue.

    #23 5 years ago
  24. ivycrew707

    Kojima Productions does have a third announcement to make I read earlier

    #24 5 years ago
  25. get2sammyb

    I wouldn’t be surprised if Sony started up a “range” in fact, with these kind of games. You know – like their “Greatest Hits” range. They could call them the “Revisited” range or something like that. Terrible idea?

    Crash Bandicoot? Oddworld?!

    #26 5 years ago
  27. eutiagopato

    come on… release all MGS´ !!!! remake or not remake, just let us play the 2nd and 3rd again :P also, make peace walker playable on ps3, and i would die a happy person :)

    whats this patapon like to play? i love the art style i just never got round to picking it up on my psp

    #30 5 years ago
  31. mington

    They should update and re-release a uncharted double pack as those games are starting to look really dated

    #31 5 years ago
  32. daytripper

    mington please post that on n4g, the reaction would be epic

    #32 5 years ago
  33. mington

    :P i’d make the forum melt

    I don’t care what Blerk says, I would buy a MGS HD collection in a heartbeat. Had my fair share of GTA to be honest though…

    #35 5 years ago
  36. Bulk Slash

    I’m hoping for Ace Combat 4 and 5 in HD. But since it’s a big secret it probably means it’s bloody MGS again. I love MGS1 but the sequels just haven’t done it for me at all.

    Vice City HD would be OK, but I can get that on the PC already. If they re-did all the models and textures then it could be very interesting.

    Id buy the Sly cooper collection and the Team Ico definatly.

    #38 5 years ago
  39. The Hindle

    I think it maybe MGS makes sense as JA pointed out.

    Zone of the Enders… That is all ;)

    wtf is Sly Cooper?

    #42 5 years ago
  43. The Hindle

    3 platforming games that came out for the Ps2, very good they were. Were called Sly racoon in Europe.

    #43 5 years ago
  44. theevilaires

    YES HD Zone of the Enders!!!! AGHHHH I want that!

    #44 5 years ago
  45. DaMan

    oh, hmm well never heard of them before.

    #45 5 years ago
  46. theevilaires

    I’m sorry if you haven’t heard of Sly Cooper go kill yourself.

    #46 5 years ago
  47. Gekidami

    A Sly Cooper collection? Hum, seems abit odd to release that without there being a Sly 3. ICO makes more sense what with The Last Guardian as did GoW with the 3rd one coming out.

    #47 5 years ago
  48. The Hindle

    @47 There are 3 Sly games

    #48 5 years ago
  49. AHA-Lambda

    there already is a sly 3

    the question is why sly tho? Its not really capitalising on anything after all unlike ico and god of war

    #49 5 years ago
  50. Gekidami

    …Then a forth one. A new one i mean.

    #50 5 years ago
  51. cookiejar

    As much as I would LOVE GTA Vice City rebooted or even a MGS collection, I’m guessing they will only be SCEE/SCEA titles and not anything else. Unless they’ve struck some kind of amazing deal.

    #51 5 years ago
  52. DaMan

    tea, if you want to make a joke at least try not to sound ironic.

    #52 5 years ago
  53. The Hindle

    If Sony give me more details about these games then E3 wont be shit.

    The Last Guaridan gameplay demo
    Vs 13 re reveal
    Infamous 2 demo
    Agent re reveal
    Syphon Filter Ps3

    According to this we should be seeing UC3, Horizon, and the ICO collection.

    #54 5 years ago
  55. AHA-Lambda

    IF (and I think it is a BIG IF) uncharted 3 is there then sony will outright WIN E3

    Plus kevin butler too ;)

    ooo i’m excited for 8pm (why so late? O_o)

    Very much enjoyed the first two Sly games. Never played the third.

    If I recall correctly, the third game came with 3D glasses – the red/blue lens type. An HD remake of all three, rijigging the optional 3D of the third into Sony’s push with ‘new’ 3D would seem to make sense.

    #56 5 years ago
  57. skullhunter13

    OMG i loved the sly games (i´m not a baby) so make a fourth one NOW!!

    #57 5 years ago
  58. Phoenixblight

    @57

    They are busy making Infamous 2.

    #58 5 years ago
  59. osric90

    So what the hell? Any Team ICO Collection announcements yet? I sold my older games just for saving for that one.
