The light saber really isn't that big of a deal, nor is the melon cutscene. The English translation of Yorda and the other woman is a bigger thing I would think.
To you maybe, I'd rather have the light saber and wacky melon scene (if only for the nostalgia about reading about them back in the day, and coveting them). You can look up the dialogue online anyway.

On Blu-ray? As opposed to what? Chinese Red-ray? Anyway, this is just one of the many announcements that are going to be made at TGS. The Ico sequel will figure prominently at the Sony show I believe.

Personally I like not knowing what they said. It made the game and the scenes feel more immersive.

An HD remake would be my first experience with both games.

Be jealous of the amazement that awaits me.
They are two of the greatest games ever made. You have much to look forward to.

Ueda games are made to feel alien, foreign, and otherworldly. They are that way be design and they are better for it.

Man, you love repeating yourself.

Speaking as someone with a copy of Ico and SOTC and a BC PS3, I'm going to buy the hell out of the collection. (but yeah, dropping BC is *really* shady)

I only wish Microsoft would do the same. I'd kill for a PC/360 port of Rallisport Challenge 2.

I'm tired of graphic whorism ruining gaming.
Running in a higher resolution isn't graphics whoring. PC gamers have had the ability to play older games in a higher res for a very long time now. Since I haven't played Ico, and SotC is one of my favorite games, I will get this day one.

They never need words.

Everything's so basic you can mostly tell what they're thinking.

I like it that way.
I disagree, of course Yorda and Ico's interaction certainly are very clear, but between Yorda and her I would disagree it is obvious what the discussion is.

It is one of those things where knowing isn't important, but it's tempting to know, and they did bother to write the material to begin with. I wonder if Lost in Translation would be better, worse, or unaffected as a film by letting us know what he said to her at the end. Or if the Radiohead video for Just included what made the guy lay down.

The truth is that it's very sweet, no one should probably experience it that way first time, but they can't really anyway because it's only a new game + option.

yea, i agree. higher resolutions (than consoles) have been around since the 90's. ICO and SOTC have a certain "low-fi" look to them, but that's because the developers are talented enough to work that into the style like any artists working with limitations. higher resolution won't ruin these games or change the gameplay in my optinion.
if anything it'll make it easier for artists who want to learn, study from these master works to see how they achieved such emotion with such low-tech hardware

I've never played ICO nor Sly Cooper nor can I find copies of these anymore, so I don't see what's wrong with remaking/HD-ing them. If you don't want it, don't buy it. Plus it makes money for the company!

@Lard, I think I've met you in another forum :lol

Haven't played ICO yet, but love SotC. I like what you said about "Lost in Translation" and "Just"... I felt like the way they left you with those questions gives those scenes more weight. Even if its just tricking you into thinking you do wonder and so I think you personalize it cause the outcomes are your outcomes in a way. Sounds like my kind of game and I've wanted to play it for a while anyways. Just never see it...
