The PlayStation 2 games are being remastered for the PS3 by Idol Minds (Pain) with the help of Insomniac Games.
All three games will sport full 1080p high-definition visuals, stereoscopic 3D support, and trophies. Additionally, the new version of Up Your Arsenal will include the same competitive multiplayer component that was a new feature for the series when the game originally shipped in 2004.
In addition, Sony today confirmed that those who purchase the collection will be granted first access to a demo for the upcoming Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time. Set for release this fall, Thieves in Time will have players meeting up with the titular raccoon's ancestors through the use of time travel.
