Ah well at least its not like Halo Anniversary, a 10 year old game that was also remastered and still wasn't native 720p.

are you serious? that remake was outstanding
Are you really slamming the 1 true "remake" this gen? and praising games like ..this, which are just unscaled to 720p.

According to the official Playstation blog, it's been remastered at 1080p with 720p stereoscopic 3D support. It'll also include the online competitive multiplayer from "Up Your Arsenal."

Sounds good to me.

Nice, i'll give it a rent, just like i did the jak collection. Sly has been the only one worth buying as far as these platformers go. It's stylised visuals work best with these HD remasters. The low res textures are far less of an issue since ot LOOKS intended. Just need jak 4 now.

And the price matched the one 10 year old game you were purchasing and the reviews? No, just no. And Stranger's Wrath says hello.

PS2 pumped out some great visuals. These games were solid enough but i never got into them. Insomniac seem to do games that play well enough but not so exceptionally well.

It seems the 3d platform era is not quite as popular any more unless it's a mario one, but was it really to begin with or was it that PS2 was just so insanely popular and brought generally good sales almost no matter what type game you made

I hear that, nothing ruins visuals like sub hd resolutions.

Game looks great even now. Definitely will buy this classic series.

Price matched developers work put into this remake, since it has entirely new graphics layer, which is surely a lot more than just upscaling it to HD.

Not to mention how Microsoft was arrogantly hyping the XBox 1 as being 1080p capable games console back then but see the haters seem to either never remember or they just forget... lol

Given how the first two current gen Ratchet and Clank Future games were that they (IG) were on a release a game a year schedule they did a great job... I'm sure if IG would have made alot of money of the Resistance and Ratchet games this gen they would have eventually revamped their tech.

But again people forget the times we are living in... people are starting to get nice HDTVs and they just cannot really play the old games like they used to so as a side effect these remakes help to refocus and re-evaluate the market for new sequels to old forgotten franchises or to help fund them...

When people keep using the Halo anniversary as a crutch they also never mention how Halo series have made ridiculous tons of cash last and this gen... its a cash cow guaranteed yet the anniversary remake was a major letdown.

Xbox 1 was capable of 1080i should know i used to use it


How is Halo Ani a crutch? its the only true remake this gen, are gamers so blinded by there own stupidity now?

You say it was a let down? in what way ? the only downfall was the MP, the single player was fantastic, was it because it was not as fun as when you first played it? what the fuck do you expect we hammered the SHIT out of that game, gamers know every nook and cranny in the entire game we know every reaction to every scenario.. and people expected it to be different?

If they had changed ANYTHING what so ever in that remake, people would of slated "dont fix wont aint broke" they dont change anything aside from visuals and they get slammed for not changing it

Pricks.

Last gen console only upscaled it. There are few PS2 games that also have support for LCD but 98% had SD tv.

This one looks great though for such an old game.
