First Look: ICO & Shadow of the Colossus Collection

Well it finally happened, what we had always hoped for, the remake and re-imagining of two of the greatest games from the PS2.

Oh, my, god, let me just act like a total fanboy for a moment, I love these games, and the fact that I will finally be able to play them with the technology that they were meant to be played with. I’m sure everyone can say that ICOand Shadow of the Colossus looked stunning on the PS2, but it can also be said that due to the limitations of the system, much of it was unrealised.

They say the quiet ones are always the ones to get you into trouble.

Finally, thanks to the PS3, we’re getting that opportunity, with all new sound, graphics and hopefully with the same content. As listed on the official Playstation website, the Team ICO collection is set for a release in Spring 2011, so expect something in the first half of next year, but heres something to tide you over til then.

So if you missed out on it the first time, or are like me and looking forward to playing it in Hi-Definition, you’ll just have to wait a little bit longer, but it’s finally a reality.

whoever controls the spice, controls the world

About SolidBaker

Edward is the Australian Asshole of the group, you'll often find him bitching about censorship or the fact that he gets shafted on most video game releases. Solid has a penchant to rattle on about little niggling parts of games that he gets angry with and tends to get angry with them often. He owns most of the current systems and a lot of the older systems, and has a general distaste of most of the current generation of games, but that doesn't mean he can't enjoy them all the same.
