The Killzone franchise didn't really make its mark until the PS3 came along
While the original PlayStation 2 title was dubbed as Sony's "Halo killer" at the time, the final product ultimately fell short. Sure, the PlayStation Portable spin-off, Killzone: Liberation, remains one of the best entries in the series — but it wasn't until...
If you struggle to distinguish the difference between up and down, Ubisoft's got your back
Hit by a minor backlash when it forgot to implement "inverted aim" options in its recent Splinter Cell HD Collection, the publisher has released a patch to rectify the problem and quell the concerns of struggling gamers. Now up is down and down is up. Because that makes sense.
We've known about it for a while, but now it's official
Naughty Dog's gaffer Evan Wells has hopped onto the PlayStation Blog to formally announce the Jak & Daxter Collection for PlayStation 3. Developed by Mass Media — in collaboration with Naughty Dog — the Jak & Daxter Collection will feature all three PlayStation 2 titles in the...
Devil May Cry fans -- this is a package we're sure you can get behind
All three of the PlayStation 2 favourites, bundled together in one high-definition collection. Sure, you've played the games before — but at least Dante's got white hair right?
Fans of flashy combat, prepare to be excited: Capcom has formally announced the Devil May Cry HD Collection for release on PlayStation 3 next year

Konami's firmed up details of the Silent Hill HD Collection, which will launch around "September/October" exclusively on PlayStation 3 under Sony's Classics HD banner
The collection includes PS2 classics Silent Hill 2 and Silent Hill 3 remastered in 720p. The voice acting has also been reworked, with trophies added to each of the titles. Let's watch Silent Hill 2's amazing intro after the jump..

That's according to updated listings posted by Amazon, GameStop and GameFly. The HD collection was previously scheduled for an August release date after being delayed out of March and June earlier in the yea
Konami's released a snippet of new information about its upcoming Silent Hill Collection compilation for PlayStation 3
First of all, it will launch exclusively on PlayStation 3 this Fall. Konami's not ruling out other platforms entirely, but the title will be exclusive "for now". The publisher cited the series long established alliance with the PlayStation platform. The Collection will..
We wonder what's taking Ubisoft so long to put out the Splinter Cell Trilogy HD collection for PS3? After already suffering one delay this year, it looks like the game's been pushed back yet again
Several US retailers are now listing an August 2nd release date for the compilation. The collection was originally due out in March
If the Internet's wishing for one thing, and it's for some kind of Hideo Kojima x PlayStation E3 gangbang
As well as expecting the announcement of a new NGP and PlayStation 3 Metal Gear project, forum goers are also anticipating some kind of PlayStation 3 Metal Gear Solid HD Collection. The discussion stems from a PSM3 magazine rumour which suggests "a major PlayStation franchise" is..
Spot of make-up and a touch of botox and look at that, good as new
Crystal Dynamics has released some comparison shots for their upcoming PlayStation 3 Tomb Raider Trilogy. The pack — which includes PS2 titles Tomb Raider Legends & Anniversary, in addition to PS3 game Underworld — has been remastered in HD (well the PS2 games have anyway) and is due out at the end of the month.
Ubisoft's slapped a March 22nd US release date on their upcoming PS3 Splinter Cell Collection bundle
The package — which includes the original Splinter Cell, Pandora's Tomorrow and Chaos Theory — will also be available from the PlayStation Network. The game will support both high-definition visuals and 3D. Bizarrely, still no word on when...
We always follow the same cycle whenever we play a Tomb Raider game
We load it up, watch a few cut-scenes, wander around the world and feel extremely happy. The tutorial levels teach us all the mechanics and we feel stoked about the rest of the game. About an hour later, we hit a brick wall. As we enter an enormous room, the camera zooms out and pans across an enormous maze of poles, ledges and..
Sly Cooper's cutting it fine, but he's going to be around in time for Christmas
Sony's confirmed that the Sly Collection — which includes remastered versions of all three Sly Cooper titles and some bonus PlayStation Move mini-games — will launch across Europe from December 1st, with the UK getting the game on the 3rd. There's more information over on the PlayStation Blog. Apparen
That Prince Of Persia Trilogy HD disc is out in Europe next week
Despite the collection being a bit of a bargain (three remastered games for under £25), there doesn't appear to be much hype surrounding the release. Which we suppose is somewhat understandable. Still, perhaps this video of the game's first ten-minutes will trigger some memories and excitement. It's worth a shot, right?
Ubisoft's finally confirmed the long rumoured HD Collection of their classic PS2 Prince Of Persia titles
The package, set to be a European exclusive, will combine The Sands Of Time, Warrior Within and The Two Thrones onto one blu-ray disc. The collection will be enhanced in HD and will also be playable in full stereoscopic 3D. It's due to release on November 19th for £29.99. Ubisoft claims the..
Perhaps one of the more divisive decisions this generation has been to remaster some of the PlayStation 2's classic titles for the PlayStation 3
We sit firmly on the "Love the idea" side of the fence, but not everyone agrees. We'd argue that improving the performance of classic PlayStation titles, while adding in new features such as 3D, PlayStation Move and trophies makes the repackaged..
Going by the branding on the Sly Cooper Collection's boxart, the "Classics HD" initiative (i
e. taking PS2 games, making them run at a slick frame-rate in upscaled 1080p and adding trophies) is a program Sony's likely to champion over the coming months. It seems like it might not be limited to first-party stuff either. Amazon France has mysteriously listed two PS3-exclusive packages from Ubisoft:..
We love the Ratchet & Clank games
Love them. But they're all a bit, well, similar aren't they? We're not sure how well a collection would work. Still, if Sony decided they wanted to put one together, Insomniac would be right behind the idea. They confirmed in a Tweet that, while they wouldn't make a Ratchet collection, they'd definitely put their support behind it. Is this something you'd want,..
We all know it's happening
The Team ICO Collection, that is. To be honest, it's probably already finished. "Why's it being held back then?" you scream. Marketing. Launch the Team ICO Collection a few months before The Last Guardian and you raise that studio's profile. Dramatically. Amazon France seem to know something we don't anyway. They've listed The Team ICO Collection
As anticipated, it sounds as though there are going to be more PlayStation 2 HD collections coming to the PlayStation 3
If the Sly Cooper Collection boxart wasn't a big enough giveaway, Sony's Worldwide Studios top-dog, Shuhei Yoshida, has told IGN "we are looking to continue to do these HD conversions". It sounds like there are a load more on the way. So it's time we askes? What do you..
Here's your first glimpse at the European packaging for a bunch of PlayStation Move launch titles
The pack shots come courtesy of French site Gamekyo, who somehow managed to get hold of the job-lot. We're not too hot on the "You'll Need These" logo on the front of the boxes, but we guess it gets the job done. Perhaps the most notable point...
