Sounds good to me. I am looking forward to it. I don't know why I never played any of these games in the past. I missed on some good stuff.

I still got my old hitman games on ps. Only not absolution,not because I don't like it but to many old games to play.I like the games but this HD collection is not the right choice my opinion and should've been released before the new one.

Take any 3 things out of a greater number of entries and call it a 'Trilogy'

WTF?!  Blood Money is already HD, I have it for the 360.  Why isn't Codename: 47 in that bundle instead?

I hate that probably one of the only reasons PC was excluded was because of that stupid band who is refusing to let them sell Contracts online.

 

It'd be great if this sold more than Absolution. Teach the industry what stealth fans really want.

if im not mistaken steam offered the same bundle if you pre order the hitman absolution

not a bad deal but if you have a backwards compatible ps3, you may want to save your cash and just get the one released for ps2 back in '07. i got it a few months back for like $10 and actually looks great with graphics smoothing.

its cool and all how you get to re-experience all of these games over again and get trophys/achievements, but is anybody else getting, well... a little tired of all these compilations and hd re-releases in the past year 1/2

This is cool & all, but why do they always leave out a title in these collections. Why would they not include the original Hitman?

i've always wanted to try to get into hitman, which is why i bought absolution, but it would be nice to go back to the roots

funny i was just thinking they should make this...... now all they need to do is ACTUALLY remake the 1st game and its a perfect collection for fans

Its kind of funny them revealing this just now because only 2 days ago I bought Hitman ultimate contracts on pc for 8.50 euros which is the first 4 Hitman games. I wouldn't say they'll make much changes to the graphics anyway. They'll probably look like the pc versions do in 720p.

I think they should release a Battletoads HD collection. Battletoads Battletoads in Battlemaniacs& of course, Battletoads/Double Dragon. Now that would be an HD remake worth buying.

Hope it doesnt turn out like Silent Hill, Zone of the Enders, Splinter Cell and Prince of Persia HD collections. Hopefully based on Pc versions. Should of Included the first hitman but not missing much as it plays terribly.

God willing, enablecheats1 is already edited in the cfg file for contracts and blood money. No cheats on consoles was really lame for those games. Hitman games are one of those games where playing with cheats on is a fun and differant way of playing.

 

Makes me miss the 90s when cheat codes were still around.

Did i ever tell you the definition of insanity? It's playing Hitman on consoles. BTW it's not worth it without Hitman 1 and its slowmo capslock mode. It's interesting that the first hitman had the best animations (except faces, of course). The animation went smoothly from taking the gun out of your suit to lining up a shot whereas in every other game you had to first [take it out] [end of animation] [shoot].

"due for release on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 January 29, 2013." No PC? Woah thats low...

 @GamerMani I'm quite sure these are just straight ports of the PC versions, any graphical changes would probably be very minimal or the hype would include "remastered graphics" etc etc to get people interested.

 @push88 Because it was never even released for playstation man just a PC game and plus the controls and AI were pretty wonky compared to the other Hitman games.

 @44montana97

 Yes. This is why it pisses me off tht they took out backwards compatibility for PS2 games on PS3.

 @CeZar_87 Because including the original probably requires some effort on their part, and they don't give enough of a shit to actually try.

 @VenkmanPHD they had cheats on consoles for those games..... you just need to know where to look

VenkmanPHD

 @theend3r I disagree. I thought Silent Assassin was much better on a console. The only reason I didn't feel the same with Contracts or Blood Money was because they didn't have the cheat codes available on consoles.

 

Other than that, being able to play the game without having to tweak any settings, have a controller, and all the benefits of acheivments/xbox live stats. ...It would be stupid to play them on PC (If not for the cheat ability)

 @ramb1402 For the first X amount of pre-orders at gamestop for Absolution, they gave away a DLC code for the "original hitman trilogy" Which of course wasn't 1-3, but 2-4.

 

I was one of those pre-orders, but I've beaten them a thousand times on PC, so I didn't bother using my code.

 @VenkmanPHD You don't have to tweak settings, just put them on max :D you can also play it with a controller on a PC and achievements? They are already in the game (silent assassin).

 @VenkmanPHD Wait did i miss something? I thought HD meant better visuals... i do own the original games but i doubt they're "HD".

 @ramb1402  @VenkmanPHD HD means high definition and you can play the original PC versions with any much higher resolution than ps3/xbox 360
