There’s no way around it: Sony’s PS2 Classics initiative has been embarrassing. While the ports are generally pretty good – complete with Trophy functionality, upscaling, and integration with the PlayStation 4’s operating system – they’ve been slow to release, and so many essentials from the last-last-gen console’s catalogue are still missing.
Nevertheless, those Jak & Daxter titles that the platform holder promised months ago are still around the corner. You may recall that the first entry in the series, The Precursor Legacy, arrived back in August as part of an Uncharted: The Lost Legacy pre-order promotion. But we’re still waiting on (the abysmal) Jak 2, Jak 3, and Jak X: Combat Racing.
Fortunately, an intrepid Canadian has spotted artwork for a Jak & Daxter bundle on the PlayStation Store, suggesting that all four titles should be available soon-ish. The link currently only takes you to the first game (which can be purchased standalone right now if you like), but the image’s existence suggests we won’t have to wait too long for the rest of the series.
