If it happens once, it can certainly happen again; perhaps it's only a matter of time.

Now that Sony has lifted the lid on that awesome God of War Collection , which features the first two gems in that stellar series reproduced in beautiful high definition (plus Trophy support), the next question from most gamers was predictable: what other PS2 titles might get a remake for the PS3? Kotaku asked this question of several publishers, and it seems there is some interest in taking the SCEA remake approach in regards to certain established franchises. A Konami representative said:

"We are constantly exploring unique ways to expose players to some of our legacy titles such as Metal Gear Solid and Silent Hill. Re-releasing games on Blu-ray presents an exciting opportunity for a publisher, however we have no announcements at this time."

Ooh, yeah, how about the first two or three Metal Gear Solid games in Blu-Ray form? Wouldn't that be sweet? Survival/horror fans would be pulling for Silent Hill , which could be downright terrifying in spine-tingling HD. And hey, Capcom is actually asking the gamers what they might want to see; check out what Christian Svensson said in the company's Unity forums:

"I don't want anyone reading this the wrong way (as I'm not saying anything like this could happen) but I'm seeing some interested for DMC to get this treatment. Are there other titles you'd like see go this way? I'm looking for some temperature readings."

Hellz yes to DMC but we wouldn't mind seeing some love tossed Onimusha 's way. And as we're big fans of Final Fantasy , we're hoping Square-Enix takes notice and decides to do something crazy great, like give Final Fantasy X a chance to be seen again in a whole new way. Or…yep, here comes the FFVII remake rumor again. As if we needed to resurrect it…

FFX would be absolutely fantastic! Brilliant game and I would love to play it again on the big screen. Chances are though, if it is re-released – with the way SE are these days – MS will probably get it too.

well if that happened to hit the market i would automatically lose at least 100 hours to that game lol

Yea FFX ftw. I wasn't able to finish it and I'll like to try it again, at least that could keep us busy till FFXIII is out.

Word is, I love FF but I've never beaten any,sshhh don't tell.

I realllyy hope that this GoW collection works well for Sony. This will defenitely set a trend for others to follow. Even if 3rd party publishers do not follow, Sony's first party lineup is massive and really, I don't think we'd see people complaining about B/C because you can't HD goodness with that. I really hope it works well for Sony.

onimusha is the bomb!!!! my favorite capcom series!!

best ones were the first & 3: demon siege

i would very much like to see a new entry in the series 🙂

All the ratchet and clanks. And Jak and Daxters. ALL OF THEM!

yes, ratchet and clank would be a nice remaster

jak would be better if they kinda fixed the story a bit cause there were a few things that were like "what?".

have all the ratchet and clanks together and call it the Qwarktastic Collection 😉

or the rip ya a new one

i'm sure the people at insomniac would make a great title for it

GT4?

Also, have they released any screenshots for the GoW collection? The "high definition" but non-upgraded textures makes me wonder how it will look.

Not sure we need to be discussing who should, I want to know about who might do this. I don't think there is a chance we will see any updated FF on the PS3. I'd love ICO and SOTC, those would be my personal choices and ones I believe might actually happen given the developers niche with Sony.

WorldEndsWithMe

SE will probably do FFVII in HD and go "There, now shut up," and never give us a real remake.

I want Max Payne 1&2 redone, and Darkwatch. Throw in FFX for the hat trick.

If you want a high def version of Max Payne you should simply play it on computer as it was originally intended.

Me neither, that's why I play using a wireless 360 controller (blasphemy I know) with my computer hooked up to my 46 inch Sony.

ICO and Shadow of the Colossus. Nothing more

These two games are all it would take to make me happy. I think too many people missed out on Ico when it came out, the game still holds up really well IMO for being an early release on a last gen system.
These are the only things I turn on the PS2 for.

Never played Ico, but I wanted to after finishing SoTC. Sign me up for that bundle.

In addition to all the games Ben mentions in the article, I, too, would like to see ICO and SoTC get an HD upgrade.

I agree with ICO and Shadow of the Colossus. I was working on SotC when I got my PS3. After playing HD games, I couldn't (and still can't) go back to my PS2 – so I never finished it.

If these two will come out just before the Last Guardian, I would buy them.

as brilliant as mgs4 was i still think snake eater is the best of the series.

so that's what i'm pulling for – a mgs3 remake. mgs2 would be good also and i'd also like to see a portable ops port.

FFX would be a fantastic remaster!!
include X-2 just for the hell of it so you can end the story.

Spent 50 hours on that game, was (and still am) 79% done; I was so lost didn't know where to go :(, but was still fun nonetheless.

In my game, Yuna and Paine were a variety of dresspheres, but Rikku was stuck as songstress….I liked the way she danced ^.^

Oh my god, too many to ask for!!!!!

I'd love to see:

FFX
Onimusha 3
Jak 1, 2, and 3

and much more!

the whole onimusha series would be cool

but yes 3 is the best

2 was good and so was dawn of dreams, but they just didnt feel as cool as 1 & 3

probably cause samanosuke is the coolest of all the onimusha heroes

Listen CAPCOM, if remaking Monster Hunter is the only way of getting it to the PS3 then do it.

Add the stuff (for example monsters and weapons) from MH2 and if you want other stuff (console co-op) from the other games in the franchise.

I could live with this until a real MH game releases.

WorldEndsWithMe

Why the hell isn't there a PS3 monster hunter anyway?

Victor321
Victor321
11 years ago

There isn't one as of now, but I hope there is. There is MH3 though, but why there is it (the true sequel to 2, and any other spinoffs/remakes that have been released) on the Wii, and the Wii only, is beyond me…however it looks pretty good (artistically, graphics are well done).

Plus, since the Wii from a glance, looks more to be an offline-type console (I tried playing online….was laggy as heck!) playing with friends in one place seems to be better than playing it online (MH games are usually played co-operatively, not competitively, and with friends, not just random people)…and the sales most likely factored Capcom's decision to put it on the Wii.

At least that's what I think why MH3 is Wii-exclusive, not PS3. Although, it might be a timed one who knows ^.^?

mustang750r
mustang750r
11 years ago

That's what I want to know.

I already know about why MH3 went to the Wii (insert lame ass excuse) but what's holding it up from happening now. They already know PlayStation owners are loyal to the franchise (look at what happend when it went to the Wii and it's sales # compared to the PSP) and we would buy copies. Now with the PS3 being $299 it should be a no brainer to do it.

Hmm, well Mustang, it might be that Capcom wants less money used 😛

But, I guess that falls under your "insert lame ass excuse" category ^.^
