    Don't quite get this current excitement for HD re-releases. You've still got a PS2, right?

    The first Jak and Daxter is one of the all-time greats.

    No, don't get enough time to play my PS3 games as it is, sold my PS2 a long time ago. I see nothing wrong with HD versions of great games, in fact people were over the moon with games like Beyond Good and Evil being re-released and the ICO collection is fantastic.

    I actually like these HD re-releases. I never got a chance to play God of War or God of War 2 on the PS2 but the HD versions were fantastic. Same with Ico/SotC although I've yet to get that collection, but will do.

    I've never played a Jak and Daxter game but heard about them being great so may get this.

    I like it when he's angry.

    I'll buy it for the first game alone. Seriously, it's brilliant. 10 years ago it devoured my Christmas

    I'd much rather play a nice pretty HD version over the original PS2 release anyway. This is assuming it's a decent attempt like Ico/Shadow or Sly.

    Loved the first one, wasn't quite so keen on the second or third. Still, if it looks nice and shiny enough I may get it.

    Such great games and in a lot of ways they are better then UC imo. They were actually really challenging as well.

    My only real gripe with the J&D series is that the sequals seem to have forgotten a lot of what made the original so good, and tried to make them more 'gritty' with Angry Jak, weapons and vehicles.

    Let's not go over the top, while there was an attempt at more grittiness, there was still plenty of humour and imagination in the sequels from Daxter, Pecker and co, Jak 2 was no Warrior Within.

    The main hub might have been a GTA style thing, but the worlds and the platforming was still well designed and fun to play.

    This.
    The fact that the world was so open with no loading times really blew me away.

    I got every single orb in that game, and you get fuck all for doing it!

    Really looking forward to this! I hope they include Jak X Racing as I never got to play it the first time round.

    Absolutely - I also it every single orb, just HAD to find them. And this time a nice trophy will reward me :D

    It's good that it's been confirmed - my brother and I have been holding off from yet another playthrough for about two years now in the hope of a HD revamp. Think with this, Metal
    Gear and FFX being confirmed, only the original Ratchet games are left on my wish list.

    Great news, it really is.

    Might even book a day off to just play Jak 1 all day.

    I'm looking forward to this but, at the risk of sounding like a party spoiler, I'm disappointed that more wasn't done to the visuals considering it's supposed to be an HD makeover. I've read that it doesn't even run in HD (it's something like 960x720), which wouldn't be so bad if the developers/porters had actually added some anti-aliasing but it is completely absent making the game look a bit rougher/jaggier than it should do compared with the gloriously sharp and clean edged ICO/Shadows of the Colossus, Sly Raccoon Trilogy and Metal Gear Solid Collection. These games deserved a bit more love IMO.

    They're clearly not "sequals" then. :-P
