Amazon France listing suggests high-definition combination pack of PlayStation 2 action titles due out May 16 on PlayStation 3.
A Ratchet & Clank HD collection will arrive on May 16, according to an Amazon France product listing spotted by the GameStop-owned Game Informer magazine
The listing has since been removed and provided no mention as to which games will be included in the pack. PlayStation 2 Ratchet & Clank titles include the original Ratchet & Clank, Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando, Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal, and Ratchet: Deadlocked. Two PSP installments in the series--Ratchet & Clank: Size Matters and Secret Agent Clank--were also ported to the PS2.
As of press time, Sony had not responded to GameSpot's request for comment.
Sony has not announced a Ratchet & Clank high-definition collection, but the company is no stranger to HD packs of PS2 titles for the PlayStation 3. The company has shipped PS3 HD collections for Sly Cooper, God of War, Jak and Daxter, and Ico & Shadow of the Colossus.
I'm very happy that we get to enjoy great games like Jak and Ratchet in HD, and this will be a day one buy for me if true (I hope it includes Gladiator/Deadlocked) but if Sony had bothered getting backwards compatability right, I wouldn't have had to wait this long to enjoy classic ps2 games on my ps3 >_
Might be one of the few remakes I'd buy (I call these "Buy what you already bought" games), as I replayed the R&C games awhile ago and I'm just too spoiled with current-gen graphics.
I really hope they include UYA and Gladiator / Deadlocked's multiplayer (and make online co op for Gladiator / Deadlocked).
These HD collections almost compensate for the lack of backwards compatibility. It's just a shame they didn't start releasing these sooner.
Wow, just the other day I said "It would be perfect if R&C got an HD Collection" and here it is! Damn I must be psychic, I'm totally buying this. I'm hoping they also bundle the Future trilogy sometime soon.
There are many titles last gen that I either played or did not play yet that would be awesome to see made HD for today.I loved the Halo Anniversary edition on the Xbox it was fun going through it once again with the new visuals.Now if only Nintendo would release some of their Best Wii titles multi-platform:P
I never got a chance to play these games last gen. After playing TOD and CIT for the PS3 though I am very excited to finally get the chance :D
seems like game devs ran out of ideas for games that they are just releasing HD versions of old games to make money.
I don't understand why GameSpot ALWAYS has to point out that Game Informer is owned by GameStop. For all other websites and publications, they just mention them by name without any descriptors.
I'll have to pre-order that game once it's announced by Sony. I still need to pick up the Jax & Daxter collection. I own all the other ones. I hope they do a Crash Bandicoot one.
YES YES YESS Ratchet and Clank was my First game on the PS2 and the disc doesnt really work anymore so yeah id buy this!
I am just going through a Crack in Time now and I love it! I also finished Tools of Destruction a while back. Those are the only 2 I have played so needless to say I am really excited :) Are the first 3 as good as TOD and CIT?
I tracked down all the Sly Cooper, Ratchet and Clank, Devil May Cry 1 and 3 and Jak and Daxter games for NOTHING over the past couple years. :(
more cool games getting remastered, seems like sony is making up for removing ps2 backward compatibility
Finally. It will be nice to play the originals in HD and trophy support considering what a let down All 4 One was.
Will definitely purchase this, I didn't like Tools of Destruction too much. Like it was okay, but I expected more. The PS2 ones were fantastic though. I have to also get the Jak and Sly Collections. Tons of games, too little time :P
