Sony to announce "Major Franchise" new HD collection soon
« on: April 15, 2011, 01:15:51 PM »
http://www.ps3center.net/news/5110/e3-sony-announcing-new-hd-ps2-collection/

The latest edition of PSM3 magazine is stating that we could be seeing a "major PS franchise" getting the HD treatment very soon.
"The current trend of classic games being remade in HD like Tomb Raider and Prince of Persia is set to continue with a major PS franchise set to reveal its new HD glory at E3. No clues. But you'll like it."

We'd all love it to be a Jak & Daxter HD collection, but I have a feeling it will be a 3rd party collection, simply because the rumor mentions two third party franchises at the beginning. Also, the rumor section also had lots of news regarding Capcom this time, so maybe we'll see a Devil May Cry collection announced?

Whatever the case, we're looking forward to all the announcements at E3 2011, which takes place between June 7-9 at the LA Convention Center.


(My theories) Could be.....

Atelier Iris 1-3 (no)
Devil May Cry 1-3
Fatal Frame 1-3
Final Fantasy X, X-2, XII
GTA 3, Vice City, San Andreas
Hitman - Silent Assassin, Contracts, Bloodmoney
Jak & Daxter 1-3
Kingdom Hearts 1, 2, Chain Of Memories
Legacy of Kain - Blood Omen 2, LOK 2, LOK Defiance
Medal of Honor - Frontline, Rising Sun, European Assault
Metal Gear Solid 1-3
Need for Speed - Hot Pursuit 2, Most Wanted, Carbon (with online play)
Onimusha 1-3 (but what about 4?)
Shadow Hearts 1-3 (doubt it)
Shin Megami Tensei - Nocturne + either DDS or Persona 3/4
Silent Hill 2-4
SSX 1-3
Suikoden 3-5 and maybe Tactics?
Tekken - Tag, 4, 5 (I would laugh)
Timesplitters 1-3 (doubt it)
Way of the Samurai - 1, 2, Samurai Western
Wild Arms - 3-5 and maybe Alter code F?
Xenosaga 1-3 (doubt it)

If it's 3rd party I'd guess metal gear or silent hill

There's only a few things it could be, as said it probably is MGS, Devil May Cry or Silent Hill, they're the only 2 big franchises I can think of that would really resell that well.

Some of the names people are throwing around are completely unrealistic.

My guess:

If it's third party either FF or MGS.
If it's first party Jack.

I guess DMC is also an option to raise hype for the reboot.

The only Silent Hill collection that I wanted was the one that Konami released for the PS2. It included all the first four games in the series, it was perfect. Why Konami never release that outside of Japan still gets me annoyed everytime I remember that.

The same for Capcom and their Darkstalkers collection.

My money is on MGS. Some of those titles were on less than 10 bits consoles.
Although personally, I'd want it to be Fatal Frame... that would be so awesome.

COME ON DEVIL MAY CRY.

(MGS wouldn't be bad either.)

It'll probably be like GTA or something. Blah.

Honestly, if it's first party, I see it being Ratchet and Clank rather than Jak.  Jak's been idle for several years now - Ratchet's still pretty popular.

Yeah, I was going to say Ratchet and Clank too.  It seems like a no-brainer it it's first party and there have been rumours about it before.

For a big third party franchise MGS seems like the most likely candidate.

It's not going to be RPGs.

I'm wondering about MGS too, but the issue is with MGS1.

The PS1 version would take a ton of work, since it would look like crap in HD.

They can't use Twin Snakes because it had stuff like a Mario statue on Otacon's desk.

And the GC remake couldn't even use the original's music, so I doubt an HD remake would either.

R&C is about to get its fourth installment on the PS3, I think that remakes of the PS2 games would be overkill.

I loved MGS1 and it blew me away when it came out.

When I got my PS2 I bought MGS2 and then that's when I basically stopped playing videogames for about 5-6 years. So maybe I should play that
