Ooh, this is a fascinating little tidbit. Bluepoint Games, the Austin-based studio behind the God of War Collection and the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, is currently “bringing a Sony classic to current game systems”. The snippet is mentioned as part of a couple of job listings, but no additional information is offered.
Judging by the wording, it sounds like the company is working on yet another high-definition compilation for the PlayStation 3 and Vita – but with many of the Japanese giant’s biggest franchises already exploited, what could the collection possibly comprise? The likes of SOCOM and Syphon Filter seem unlikely, as do The Getaway and Dark Cloud. We’re stumped.
In addition to the mysterious PlayStation classic, the job listings also mention that the outfit is teaming its “technical expertise with an industry leading developer on a next-gen, blockbuster franchise”. We’re not even going to bother speculating about that, because it could be anything. What do you think that the studio’s up to? Let us know in the comments section below.

There are a few collections that could still be worthwhile
Dark Cloud made me think haha
There are also the Onimusha games and surelly some other that I fail to remember
@WCamicase Onimusha is Capcom, though. There are plenty of series that they could port, but I'm struggling to think of anything major that would probably warrant it. Stuff like PaRappa would be amazing, but I think PSone ports are unlikely, because at that point it would require a full remake rather than an upscale.
I hope they're utilizing that Patent to allow Platinum trophies
CRASH IS BACK!
(i know he's not but i can dream can't i)
@nathanuc1988 Good memory! I'd forgotten about that!
Teaming up to make a new wipeout for ps4 Yes....... I know it won't happen, good news current systems = vita
I like Bluepoint games, i like playstation classics. Whatever it is ill be happy!
Might be Twisted Metal.
The Getaway HD collection would be awesome. If they ironed out controls n framerate issues while bumping up textures a tad n running, at least , 720p we'd have a winner. I remember the joy of playing the original via component cables for that sweet 480p lol Better games than I expected at the time. shame about the Ps3 sequel being canned, those tech demo's were awe inspiring
A PS4 The getaway Would be Awesome!
@8vpiper @MadchesterManc I second the votes for a new The Getaway. I've always wanted The Getaway 3 to come out. I'm not sure now that The Order's been announced, though. Do we think a second London game (even though it's a different time period) is likely?
The Getaway collection would be neat, but they'd really have to dive in and fix up difficulty, checkpoints, controls, etc. Those games have not aged well.
Spyro, Crash and Dark Cloud <-- Yes we want it.
To get the UK back
made a topic about it in forum
Alright, you've got my cautious attention.
Could be anything, Sony has a lot of classics under their belt: Bushido Blade, Medieval, Spyro, Ape Escape, Battle Arena Toshinden, Bloody Roar are among my guesses, but I got my fingers crossed for Bushido Blade.
Whatever it is, I'm sure I will love it. I hope it comes to Vita!
I hope it's Crash! That guy made up my toddler years!
