Still waiting. Not just waiting for the game, but waiting for Sony to even acknowledge it! What's up, Sony?
Ubisoft's high-definition fantasy action adventure game landing in Sony's virtual store next Wednesday.
While the mysterious Beyond Good & Evil 2 is still far away, gamers looking to play a high-definition overhaul of the original for Sony's system now have a date to circle on their calendars.
According to a response made by a Sony representative in the comments section of the PlayStation Store restoration blog entry, Beyond Good & Evil HD will launch for the PlayStation 3 on June 8. The game was originally pegged to debut on the PlayStation Network in May, but Sony's six-week online outage prevented that from happening.
Beyond Good & Evil HD features 1080p graphics, including enhanced character models and upgraded textures, and Ubisoft has also remastered the game's musical score. The game was released on the Xbox Live Arcade in early March.
The original Beyond Good & Evil launched in November 2003, winning critical acclaim for its mix of traditional action adventure elements and stealth segments. The game also drew praise for its picture-taking gameplay mechanic and engaging story of a journalist named Jade.
Good to hear more people get to experience this hidden gem of a game and possibly increase the likelihood of the sequel's release.
@ChiefFreeman actually when it came out it was terribly underrated. I'm glad now people see how good this game is and that they are coming out with a long over due sequel. I got this months after it came out originally for the xbox and wished I got on release day. Very good game that took awhile to get the props it deserved.
I bought this when it first came out and will buy it again on June 8, it is truly an incredible game that everyone on PSN should play.
Never got to play this, and I've heard good things, so it will be interesting to see how this plays out.
