Game Review

Insomniac Games sure knows how to cement a legacy.  After doing wondrous things for Spyro the Dragon over on the PS One, the team moved on to a new franchise on the PlayStation 2, featuring a heroic Lombax and a straightforward (yet useful) sidekick as they made their way across a trouble-filled galaxy, helping out the clueless (yet noble) Captain Qwark and various other types while...

Sly Collection Priced, and It's a Steal

Sony has officially announced the price of The Sly Collection, and it looks to be very easy on gamers' wallets. The compilation of all three Sly titles will retail for $40; not too shabby at all. This pricing falls in line with that of the God of War Collection and may indicate Sony's permanent price point for all future "Collection" titles. With other franchises and companies such as Ratchet & Clank and Team Ico rumored to be in consideration for the collection treatment that means a whole lot of great games coming along with HD upgrades at reduced prices.

Insomniac All for a Ratchet & Clank Collection

Lately there's been quite a bit of buzz around Sony's sudden interest in creating anthologies of classic PlayStation franchises. The God of War Collection landed earlier this year and the Sly Collection is due to land this fall. Furthermore, Sony has expressed interest in creating more HD collections, so could Ratchet & Clank possibly fit that bill? If so, count Insomniac as fans of the idea. Ringing endorsements after the break. Read More

Sony Planning More HD Collections

PS3 owners were pleased as punch when the God of War Collection arrived not long ago, and many a grown man squealed like a schoolgirl when Sony announced the Sly Cooper Collection at E3 a couple weeks ago. Are these HD re-masterings of classic franchises the start of a trend? According to Sony's Shuhei Yoshida, they are indeed. Find out more after the break. Read More

Sony Considering More HD PS2 Collections

After the success of Sony's recent God of War re-release, in which both original God of War titles were given the HD treatment and released on a single Blu-ray disc for PS3, Sony is apparently looking into giving other series similar makeovers. A Kotaku reader sent them a snapshot over the weekend of a Sony survey that asked the question "What titles would you like to see in a future collection (2 or more PS2 titles upgraded with similar features to God of War Collection)?" Is Sony simply "wallet mining," as one commenter said, by planning on repackaging every single PS2 title that could make them a shred of cash, or will only the games people are interested in- and the ones that really deserve to be revisited- be making it back to store shelves? More speculation after the jump. Read More

"Exciting Times" For PlayStation According to Tretton

"Exciting Times" For PlayStation According to Tretton

In a blog post on the official Playstation website, President and CEO Jack Tretton has called recent weeks "one of the most exciting times for Playstation". Not only did the 120GB PS3 Slim model surpass 1 million units sold, but a 250GB model will be available starting November 3rd for the holiday season. The larger storage model will cost $349, while the 120GB model is still running $299. According to NPD Group's September sales rankings, the PS3 topped the list, boasting a 112% increase in sales as compared to September of 2008. The release of the PSPgo saw a 300% boost in PSP sales in its opening week. Many titles are gearing up for release in the coming weeks including Ratchet and Clank Future: A Crack in Time, God of War 3, MAG, Modnation Racers, and the God of War Collection. Several third party titles will make their way to the PS3 like Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Assassin's Creed 2. Tretton finishes his report with a casual suggestion to buy UNCHARTED 2: Among Theives, calling it "a truly visually stunning and immersive game that is clearly only possible on the PS3". According to Tretton, "there simply has never been a better time to be part of the PlayStation family". It certainly seems that PlayStation is working its way out of the economic slump. With the 250GB model hitting stores just before the holiday shopping season hits full swing, there's definitely a big potential for holiday sales. Give me a 120GB/God of War Collection bundle and I may just have to start saving up... Read More

Leaked SEGA Document Describes Game Line-Up, Motion Control Date, and PSN Imports

It appears that the SEGA-Sony document which was leaked earlier today ("allegedly," Kotaku notes) was a doozie. In addition to the talk of PlayStation 2/Dreamcast games on the PlayStation 3, it seems that the document was a veritable treasure trove of other information as well. Kotaku reports that the document, now removed from its home at Objectif-Sega, "covers everything from Aliens and Bayonetta to Sonic and something called Vanquish." That's quite a bit of ground, as they clarify that "every major Sega game is mentioned in the document, often with details that appear to be either upcoming plans or at least ideas about what would the companies might pursue."

God of War Collection Box Art Revealed

The official box art for God of War Collection, along with that of Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time, has become one of the first PS3 box arts of the new style to be unveiled. The art was first seen on the Amazon.com page for the collection and later confirmed by Sony as final. This along with the art for Crack in Time definitively confirms that the new box art style will be used in North America. Sony has gone for a more bare-bones box art, simply displaying the original covers for the two God of War titles the collection contains. As ugly as it might look to some, this is actually in line with all the trilogy collections that have been coming out for the PS2. Other than the new "PS3" logo that resembles the "PS2," and "PSP" logos, what is also of note on the collection box is the message "Remastered in High Definition" at the top. Read More

Complete PS3 Trophy Support Appears Doubtful

Complete PS3 Trophy Support Appears Doubtful

Though many developers are supportive of Sony's new Trophy system, it seems that a growing number are unwilling to create patches for already-existing games, thus affecting Sony's claim that all existing software would utilize the feature. Infinity Ward has already stated that they would not be creating a patch in order to allow Trophies to be attainable in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, while wishing the option had been there at launch. 2K Games has also added that Trophy support would not be added to Civilzation Revolutions, and IGN has reported that Insomniac will not be adding retroactive support for Ratchet & Clank: Tools of Destruction or Resistance: Fall of Man, even though the latter's sequel is planned to include Trophies. Does this affect you in any way? Would you like to see more games that have already been released include Trophies to add to your collection? Or are you simply looking to the future and going from there? Tell us in the comments. Read More
