Nope, don't know where you got that from, they are just ports of the PS2 versions and up-res'd in the typical HD Collection fashion.
Can't say I know if they are tinkering with the textures at all though.

I never played ZOE2, only the first. Bought the first back in 2004 and expected to play it but never did. Last year I sold my sealed copy for $75, haha! Basically paid for this collection outright. Can't wait to finally experience the 2nd game.

Keen to get this (probably on Vita), but after the Silent Hill Collection debacle I went and grabbed a PS2 copy of Second Runner anyway just in case (only had the first one before that).

Looking forward to this. I somehow made it through the PS2 days without ever playing despite a strong desire to do so.

This better not turn out like the Silent Hill HD Collection. T_T

I don't think there's any chance of that happening with KojiPro being over the porting team's shoulder the whole way.

The big question, though, is who that team is.

As previously detailed, Zone of the Enders HD Night Fastest in the Universe ReBOOT Preview will take place at Shinjuku's Wald 9 theater on May 25 from 18:30 to 21:00. Konami previously only said that attendees for the paid event would get to see talk sessions between the staff and voice cast, a special live performance, and see the latest ZOE footage.

Today, Konami announced that the event will also have a playable corner and goods corners. You won't need a ticket to access these, but depending on crowds attendance may be limited.

To play the game, visit Shinjuku Wald 9's Cafe Oase from 21:00 to 22:30 on the 25th. The game will also be playable there on the 26th and 27th from 8:00 to 22:30.

A developer hasn't been announced, but KojiPro said that they're working closely with the developer.

They would have said it was Bluepoint by now; we knew Bluepoint was doing MGS HD Collection since it was in the original announcement.

I would suspect that it's Genki, since they worked on Peace Walker HD with KojiPro.

On PS3, outside of some cutscenes where the top 1/8th of the screen for some reason looked like it was interlacing or melding into itself, things ran pretty smoothly and pretty good. There was some slowdown in a particular boss mission involving a rapid succession of 2D fireballs, but otherwise good work.

Really good. 60fps, redrawn art for about everything. And perfect controls thanks to the second stick, though it made a not-so-challenging game piss easy :p

Someone will correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm also pretty sure the Big Boss face model used in the HD version was the high-poly version used in the opening and ending cinematics, and not the one usually used ingame in the PSP version. Which is a really nice touch, since it looks leaps and bounds better. Think Shenmue Passport models.

The ZONE OF THE ENDERS HD EDITION special webpage lists that the tickets for the main event are already sold out, so those who can go to the other non-fee-required activities will probably have difficulties to access them if there are many people interested, as it seems to be:

I think you're right; it sticks out since the body is still the same old low poly PSP model.

And yes, Peace Walker HD came out pretty great, but the ZOE titles (especially 2) will be more challenging to port over since they're vastly more complex in the tech department. I'm not worried too much about it since KojiPro will be there every step of the way, but any developer would have their work cut out for them.

Am I the only person who found ZoE1 to be superior to the 2nd?

All I want from ZoE is constantly fighting robots in an open space. ZoE2 didn't really provide that that well because they always had you doing something special like trying to find where to go on a linear path in the canyons, trying to slowly navigate through invisible land mines, and shit. I guess they tried to make up for it with that mass war battle that happened in 0.3 FPS.

I really don't know why unless you really liked the fact that they let your fly around more. They took that out of the second game because a lot of it was pointless, so they just dumped you into the meat of the game in the second one.

There really was not that much meat to me. Half the game was doing random shit. Which is why I don't get why it has so much love over the first.
