    Ah cool. I thought it had been confirmed that this would be a simultaneous release with TLG.

    Question is, do I get a PS3 in April or continue to wait for them to get cheaper in time for TLG?

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    Remember VAT is going to go up after Christmas and that's probably the best time of year for deals!

    Would have made it too obvious. Team Ico is all about the subtlety.

    In case you didn't notice, the Kotaku article has been updates to say that the box art is not official.

    Someone on Reddit made a custom box art, which I think is rather nice.

    SotC in 3d could be a sight for sore eyes.
  • Deleted user 16 September 2010 16:18:06
    ah maybe they'll use the US ico boxart for the ico panel after all

    The US boxart was something that people complained about and has been commented on by the Fumito Ueda iirc. I'm hoping for a custom cover for the collection!

    I hope they put effort in to the presentation of this.

    But I just know they'll make it as budget as possible, probably having review scores and quotes printed on the actual boxart. Personally I think they should not even have the PS3 banner at the top, nor any logos (like the SCE logo, or whatever).

    Yeah, because people are crying :S It's called a discussion.

    can't argue

    The games are going to be ruined by trophies anyway. What's on the box pales into insignificance in comparison.

    That moment of relief, doubt, perhaps even guilt, followed by disquiet and unease as a colossus topples crowned with YOU GOT A TROPHY! YOU DID A GOOD THING SEE? YOU GOT SWEET TROPHY.

    You still can't turn off the notifcations can you? I hate the bastard things. Ruin every game they're in. So many firmware updates, so much pissing me around and basic functionality is still in the stone age.

    I'm slightly disappointed that they didn't update the character models, just the textures. Sly Cooper seems to have had quite a few models redrawn. But then I remember it's in 1080p, decent framerate and even 3D if I want it.

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    I played the Sly Cooper games quite recently, those are the original character models in the PS3 shots.

    It's just a game that works well because of it's heavily stylised art direction. I imagine Okami would look amazing given the same treatment. I wish they actually had tweaked Sly a bit, between the three games they were a bit sloppy about scale and Sly ends up very small in comparison to one character by the third game when he was taller than them in the first.

    Well, they're HD, innit.

    @Cappy Yeah, the character models look original. But some of the scenery in the one comparison shot I've seen seemed to have been redone.

    I think you can turn off notifications somewhere. But it turns off message alerts and other things too.

    Well HD is just a display resolution, they're just running it in a higher res, that's not re-doing anything.

    That's just message alerts only. Not trophy notifications.

    Oh! Well boo-uurns then. Hopefully they'll have the tact to not dish out trophies for felling each colossus.
  • Deleted user 16 September 2010 19:19:35
    i'd say that trophies for just that is a given!

    I honestly have no idea what the big deal with the trophy notifications is. There's the little chime and the little box in the upper right corner and that's it. What's so hard to bear about this?

    Normally nothing, but in this it's a clear, positive incentive to do something that many people felt conflicted about. Maybe they could dish out trophies for finding them instead?

    Well, since in this game killing the colossi is how you progress, trophies are more than justified for that very thing?

    Conflicted or not, you have to kill them to finish the game.

    Edit: ... Unless I missed the point of the game and that's not what you're supposed to do..? :S
