Shadow of the Colossus to be Re-Released?

This seems a bit pointless since it is still on sale in my local gamestop as well as the fact that a lot of people dont have the ps2 compatible ps3

still not sure if i'd get this, i just hope the new game isn't all riding a horse around

This game is amazing! I had it on the ps2 before and sold it when i got the 360, but now I'm trying to get it again. If they re-released it I would definetely buy that

if they made it HD like their re-release of God of War... and I'd actually buy it. Even if I already have SotC... ...itd be worth it

Yes! I've been wanting to get this game for ages but I don't think I can last much longer. D:
I might just search for an old copy of the game. Still the news sounds awesome. :D

OH MY GOD THIS IS THE BEST THING EVER!!!!!!!!!! ...Excuse me while I go away somewhere and scream in happiness like the little fanboy I am

I'll join you... There are not many games worth getting this excited over, but these games are.

I fully agree and welcome to the Escapist. :)

Thanks. ^_^

y'know what? I was just thinking about picking up Shadow of the Colossus used yesterday.

I was happy until it said PS2 :(

It's sad how masterpieces like this which are unique and brilliant sell like crap, and reskinned, four hour, derivative shooters outsell them both put together on the first day. Damn I swear multiplayer is ruining gaming. At least they're not being put off by this.

Simalacrum:
Only for the PS2? I'm afraid my Slim won't be able to play it, and I've never actually played Ico or SotC... so a blu-ray remake would be way better actually!

I CAST THEE OUT!

God..damn..Exclusives. May that little idea rot for ever in the nethermost recesses of Hell.
><
I do so want to play these games.

................. yes

But you know what would be even better, Sony? Learn from your God of War division and give us a HD-remastered compilation of Ico and SotC on Blu-Ray. I'd pick that up in a heartbeat, no joke.

Riiiight.

Sorry to be the spoiling dude, but Ico underperformed hilariously, as you already mentioned. (And in my opinion it wasn't that great of a game, only a pretentious one)

And while Shadow of the Colossus came close to the magical million mark, it is still far short of the 3.2 and 2.5 million that the first and second God of War sold respectively. Considering the signicantly more limited Playstation 3 userbase and the fact that the God of War Collection has sold less than 400k in the duration of about one month, how much does a compilation of Ico and Shadow of the Colossus can sell? Very little, I would guess. Perhaps not enough to cover the HD-transformation costs.

Wait, they're re-releasing it for PS2?

What the hells the point? Put it out on PS3 with Ico or something, that'll give you more promotion.

Considering i already own editions of ICO and SOTC a re-release on the ps2 doesnt interest me... unless they brought them out even as a digital download on to the ps3, at least then i could finally get rid of my ps2.

A HD update would be nice... but Team Ico are too small a developer to expend energy on such an upgrade while they are still aiming for a 2010 release of the last gaurdian. Unless some other group takes control of it. I would love to see SOTC with smoother framrate and crisper resolution but i won't expect it. As people already mentioned SoTC never got the sales of other such titles that have had HD updates.

Still, fingers crossed.

Too bad I have Shadow of the Colossus already. With any luck they'll rerelease ICO too.

You know what? Same here!

I was checking out the listings for Ico and SotC on eBay, and almost bought one.

why SotC?

i can stil find copies of it.

RE-RELEASE ICO!

i could make shirts, like "free tibet" or the ever popular "screw tibet"

"RE-RELEASE ICO"

Oh, I thought it would be a PS3 re-release. I think that an HD version of Shadow of the Colossus would be nothing short of breathtaking.

Apparently it's only $18 at Gamestop. I don't know how much ebay is offering (don't trust it myself), but $18 isn't a bad price for a cult classic.

I still need to pick up Ico...Maybe this might be my chance.

I was thinking about replaying it anyways!

Oh.

Oh god.

My house has been shaken from it's foundation with my head exploding.

I swear, if they re-release Shadow of the Collosus and ICO (especially ICO as I've never played it), then God exists and is name is Dormin.

Oh, come on Sony. Don't remove backwards compatibility in your systems and THEN do this.

If they re-release Sotc in HD, I will finally have run out of excuses to avoid buying a PS3. I have both Sotc and Ico for the PS2 but Sotc in HD would look spectacular.

I honestly don't understand why they are not doing this more often. It's easy cash with minimum expenses, so there's hardly any risk involved, so what gives? Not just for Ico games, but there are so many games I can think of that I would happily buy a remastered bundle of, like the Silent Hill games, a FFX and FFXII bundle, so many games that would be awesome to own in nice little good-looking packages for a reduced price.

...Exucse me while i change my pants.

Thats better. Now i would like this, if it did end up coming out on the PS3, that would actually make me consider buying a PS3 just for that game.

SotC is actually worth going out and buying an old PS2 for. Re-making for the PS3? kinda a waste of time, and many fans might not have a PS3. I think a re-make should be in the same format, for the same platform, but that's just me I guess ^^; Can't say I can see much of a difference between most HD and SD variations, nothing worth spending extra monies over anyways, so I'm not that excited about the whole HD thing. Anyways, SotC is epic and anyone who can find an orig copy (very difficult around here ;_;) should definitely look into it.

Anyone who can't, keep an eye out for the re-release and let us know =D

I am not a sony user.

Shadow of the Collosus ranks as my number one favorite game from last generation.

I would go out tomorrow and buy a fucking PS3 simply for an HD Remastered compilation.

Funk, do you have any clout? Make your journalistic voice heard-- take this up as your one-man mission and take it straight to the heart of the sony empire.

I just started this game again today. I found it, and remembered how much I loved it. I think an HD remake without the frame rate problems that the first one had would be ABSOLUTELY amazing.

I have a PS2, but I hope they release it for the Xbox 360.

Very, very Doubtful, but hey, a man can hope.

HD remastered? Just getting them re-released is a dream come true, here in Aus the things are pretty hard to get a copy of. Putting them in HD.. I'd buy a PS3 just for that.

I've been looking for Ico for ages! I have SotC already, but I'd be willing to buy it again if it was packaged with Ico.

This is awesome news! I'm a huge fan of Ico but I missed Shadow of the Colossus when it came out. I've been waiting for this for years. Fantastic!

I had never heard of the game until i saw some images and info in a Games Design book i have. I think it looks ok and so yeah i guess i would give it a go if i ever get the chance (which means probably when im 60yrs old).
