ICO & Shadow Of The Colossus Collection: Bonus Content

The ICO & Shadow of the Colossus Collection deserves a spot in your collection come September 27.

Featuring full 1080p high-definition remakes of two of the most revered titles of the PS2 generation, along with 3D support, Trophies, and 7.1 surround sound, this is a must-have for any hardcore gamer. But wait, there's even more incentive, as revealed at the PlayStation Blog:

This collection will come packed with "some amazing bonus content." There will be a voucher for two XMB Dynamic Themes (one each for ICO and Shadow of the Colossus), along with a ton of great video content for both games and The Last Guardian. You can grab it all for only $39.99 and considering the classics in the box, that's one hell of a bargain. We also can't wait to check out those new videos. Lastly, dare we hope to get a release date for The Last Guardian when this Collection hits store shelves...?

We're having trouble waiting. :(

Already preordered. Bonus content or not, this is still going to be the best collection next to the MGS collection or metroid prime trilogy collection.

I'm scared The Last Guardian has gotten lost in development hell. They are going to have to release something concrete one of these days to help me out of that fear. When's TGS?

Well, because the last word we had from them about the game was that they haven't even figured out how the gameplay will work. It'd by cool to see it THIS generation.

I'd say capturing/creating all the natural movements that cats,dogs & birds do along with making realistic feathers and how they react naturally in the 3d environment is taking up more time than expected.
Making the most realistic animal in video game history is gonna take 5 years at least.But if they can match what weta did in king kong(some of those scenes where he was eating and resting looked like a real gorilla)i think we'll have something very special.

What type of game if The ICO & Shadow of the Colossus? Is it an Action Adventure or an RPG... or? And how long is the story & how great is it?

Sorry i never played it before.

Adventure game. I'd say go watch some gameplay off YouTube but I'd rather you not have it spoiled at all if you really know nothing. All you need to know is that you need to buy it.

Correct me if im wrong but I remember seeing some trailer for Ps2 around 2002-2005 for a game so similar to ICO & Shadow of the Colossus. I remember wanting it because of the huge monsters but I just couldn't remember what the game was. I believe it's ICO & Shadow of the Colossus. I wont look at any gameplay, everyone seems to like it. I want to see what all the fuzz is about. You think its worth a purchase? Why would I ask??? Everyone likes it...

Ico stars the Jungle Book's Mogli, well, maybe it was his brother or cousin. the game was about hitting shadows with a stick while playing around in a big abandoned castle. Oh yeah, you also had to watch out for a helpless chick while you played on chains and jumped across chasms.

It's good. No, really, it is.

Yeah... that chick can be a bit annoying sometimes. Like when she doesn't have the cojones to jump over a hole in the ground. It also had puzzle elements, which were fun. And really good platforming segments.

Cool on the extra content, and way cool on TLG videos. Can't wait to wrap my eyeballs around them. I'm actually slightly disappointed by this though. I was hoping for the collection to release shortly before TGS so that the hype around them can vent a bit and people can start gettig excited for TLG, then at TGS, Sony announces a 'finalised' date for it. Maybe this will work in their favour though, as hype should be at its highest for the collection, so they can ride that wave and still announce a date.

Also, that's WAY too long away!

was really looking forward to these never tried either ICO or SOTC, but ill have to give them a miss.
got allot of exams for september, plus the splinter cell trilogy is suppose to be out during the last week so it will probably be arround the same time as this.
SC >>>>>>> this collection.
might pick it up in the bargain bin this time next year when theres nothing new to play.

im really starting to get worried about TLG.
its been in development since 06 and all we have to show for it are a few trailers!
the lack of progress, and confidence from sony and the developers is really concerning.
i was so positive it would be at E3 this year considering that was where they announced it.
if it does not show up at TGS, then it goes on the dead list allong with all the other games which have been announced for 5+ years and have seen nothing of.

valve, im looking at you!
portal 2 is out, DOTA 2 is releasing just after gamescom aparentyl so i think its about f*cking time we got some news on HL3 or HL2 epp3.
latest gameinformer says that the latters been canned, and to be honest that would not surprise me.
whatever it is, i think we deserve some half life related info NOW!
i remember reading a article ages ago stating valve would be releasing a new game on ps3 and they would be releasing portal 2 to gain funding to rework the source engine for HL3.
well both have happened, so maybe thats why its taken so long to hear anything HL related?
i dont care to be honest, half life 3 could be running on a comadore 64 and id go buy it!

It sure is one hell of a bargain. Remember the news that we might get a code for The Last Guardian demo. I wish that were true. :)
