Not posted yet? WTF GAF?

That Team Ico bundle that sneaked its way onto the internet? It’s real, TheSixthAxis has been told this morning, and it’s due Q1 2011.

We don’t currently have much other details that we can spill, and for obvious reasons we’re branding this a rumour, but our source not only confirmed that Ico and Shadow of the Colossus will be heading our way on a Blu-ray disk for the PS3, but also that we won’t see the double pack until the beginning of next year.

Sony declined to comment on the date and details when we asked them.

Tagged as rumor, but seems it's coming for real.

Is it just me or are rumors completely useless? LOL I HEARD THIS DURR...

If it's real, I'll re-buy if they are enhanced in any way... just because these games are epic.

Sony does indeed like money.

Was overhyped for SoC and i was a little dissapointed with but still a lovely lovely game. Never tried Ico.

Not re-releasing them would be a sin, so if they don't they'll spend eternity in a special circle in hell. Either way I'm satisfied. :)

This would be good. I never did get a chance to play Ico and never finished SotC. It gave me headaches.

Already own both, but it's Team Ico so I'll happily buy a bundle. Day 1!

This.

Can't imagine the assets being touched up. It's likely the game will simply be ported with an internal resolution increase and some AA, a la GoWC. Regardless, the hi-res ICO and SotC screenshots in the PS2 emulator thread look amazing. The issue with PS2 games is image quality moreso than the actual assets.

Just a framerate increase is all that matters. Would be godly.

Indeed. 60fps SotC in particular.

TTP said:
And the frame rate! Solid 30fps! If not 60fps wtf!

I've been wondering if they'll bump the framerate up to 60fps considering the game would've been developed with 30fps in mind. If the resources are there, I'd love to see the games released at 60fps. If Bluepoint can hit it with GoW and GoW2, I can't imagine the task being impossible with ICO and SotC.

Edit: I wonder if there'll be a bundle with The Last Guardian? I may wait and see if SCEA/E announce anything closer to TLG's release date.

Nah ICO definitely needs a texture upgrade, even if its just some sort of basic filtering. The game was originally designed for PS1 and actually put in a lower resolution than the PS2 standard to get the look they were going for. I'm not sure HD will do ICO any favours without some touching up

Britania rules the waves.
The Last Guardian next year suits me fine, between March and July would be good. The good thing about Uedas games is that they don't have mass appeal but do have a substantial hardcore following, meaning you can put them anywhere else and they'd sell. Putting a game like this in the Xmas rush would be total suicide.

Sony still have GT5 (The biggest franchise on PS3), Resistance 3 (likely), Motorstorm 3 (likely), LittleBigPlanet 2, Playstation Move and its games and SOCOM 4 for the end of the year. Thats still a massively substantial end of year window for them.

As long as it's as good as the GOW Collection, I'LL BUY IT AT A HIGH PRICE!

Not really high though, hopefully it's $40.:D

YESSS!

Two of my favorite games ever. I really doubt they'd get SotC running at 60fps, 30 is more likely, which would be absolutely fine for me.

It would kill the awesome slowmo jumps like when you perform a jump from the bridge to the Colossus' head.

Anyway...
Instant buy.

I would buy this in a heartbeat, especially if the framerate is locked.

I've been somewhat casually trying to find both Ico and SOTC in EB every time I'm in, to see if they have any used copies, but no luck.

OM NOM NOM.

SOTC in HD would be enough to make me buy a PS3. No jokes.

I hope this is true.

I loved Ico but missed out on playing SotC due to getting sucked into FFXI for nearly 2 years straight.
