While we anxiously await any news of the sequel, we appreciate Ubisoft's recognition of the original's long-standing appeal.
Today, Ubisoft has announced that Beyond Good & Evil , the award-winning action/adventure PS2 game that stole the hearts of many, will be recreated in high-definition for a new life on the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade. The fresh overhaul will arrive some time next year, and it'll be complete with Trophies, Achievements, and a few new secrets. Boasting everything from epic boss encounters to exploration to stealth to puzzles, BG&E is one of the more well-respected titles from last generation. Jade, an investigative reporter and martial artist, is the protagonist, and she must work to discover a terrible governmental conspiracy. She'll need evidence of the misdeeds, though, and that's where you come in, so make sure to look about, make some friends, and above all else, stay alive! This game was quite colorful and extremely well designed, so with a glossy HD sheen, it should look pretty damn good. Besides, not many games these days combine so many elements into a cohesive, entertaining quest.
For more info, go ahead and visit the game's new official site . We'll also be certain to bring you any updates concerning BG&E2, which is supposedly still in development.

More companies should start releasing their ps2 gmaes on PSN. Specially the rare ones.
Like I said before, with this, ICO, SotC and the first two God of War games now available on the PS3, all I'm waiting for is a MGS Collection, ZoE Collection and Okami and I'll have all my PS2 favs in HD!
This is amazing news, though. I give HUGE props to Ubisoft for giving the fans this.
Capcom could do a collection, with Resident Evil 4 and Okami. Oh, and they both can work with Move, after all, they both were ported to the Wii.

Now that's a good idea hellish_devil
Oh, my wallet will suffer once more.
i always heard good things about this particular game. I will pick it up.
I might have to get this even though I have it for sexbox, I'd like to see it remastered in HD.
Great for those who never got the chance to play it, and now with trophies, extras, & in HD too!!! Quad-triple awesome!!!!
As for myself I've already been playing bits of my BG&E off & on on my PS2 for the last couple months, but I think I'll get it again just for all the extra goodness.
Brilliant, a game i have always wanted to play, i'll get it first thing.
Please, oh please make these PS2 new HD re-makes too, & make damned sure you put them on physical discs TOO!!!!
Fahrenheit/or Indigo Prophecy(in N.A.)
Shadow of Destiny
The Ace Combat (all)
Naval Ops (all)
Syphon Filter (all)
Indigo definitely needs a re-release after the success of Heavy Rain.
i agree with that biker/world that was a cool game for its time. first thing i thought of when heavy rain was showed off was indigo prophecy.
Dont forget games that only came out in japan biker
i just bought this for $6 back in july. figures. maybe ill play through the ps2 version and then try the hd version. cant wait. i hope they make more of these rereleases.
Ooh yea! Can not wait! But i'll try!
DICKS is also a good Ps2 game.
Dead In The Water
Damn, good times good times
Dammit, I forgot to add this series into my most wanted PS2 HD list above too…..
Fatale Frame (all)
Fatal Frame trilogy = must buy for me
I could never find the PS2 games for a decent price and they NEVER appear in the used game section.
Most of these collections don't interest me, since I either have the original games or don't want them, but FF would be an exception.
Generally, though, I'd rather companies release NEW games rather than these re-releases.

i loved legends 1 i need to find that one. i have legends 2 but it just doesnt feel as great as the first
Hey wait a minute, I just realized that Sony finally found a way to get our PS2 games into the PSN & PS3 without having to do B/C.
So now they just need to re-do the whole entire PS2 library for extra goodness for those who don't have a B/C PS3 or a PS2.
And while you're at it Sony, also give us every single game in the PS1 library too.
Er….maybe not Barbie's Riding Academy though, especially seeing how it got the lowest 1.6 review score EVER on our own PSXE here, LOL
dont lie you know you want that hd barbie riding acadamy game.
When did you say your birthday was again?
(I'm wrapping it up for ya this very second)
Sony, let's put Advent Rising on that HD re-make list too

Is it true there working on a device that lets us play ps2 games on ps3??
Let's get some Jaguar games on PSN next.
And the old 3DO games too
Personally, I'd love to see the 3DO's 600-level, highly-addictive game called "Icebreaker", completely re-done in HD goodness & put on the PS3.
I have actually never played this (though it's on my rather lengthy list of games from previous generations that I still want to play), and this will be an awesome opportunity to finally do so.
Damn fine games being re-released in HD with trophies. This generation sure is different from what I was expecting. Bravo Ubi.
I like the HD re-releases, and it seems like they conveniently turn up not too long before the next installments release. GoW Collection, SotC, Ico, and now BGE. I wish they'd have given us an HD GT4 last year while we were still waiting for GT5 (Nov. 2nd Yay!). I think it would have been more well received than Prologue was.
next up, R&C!
I be getting beyond good and evil in hd for psn
