Sony eyeing more HD classics

Platform holder looking to follow up Sly, God of War packs

Sony has revealed that it's looking at releasing more classic PS2 games remastered in high-definition.

In a recent interview, the president of SCE's Worldwide Studios Shuhei Yoshida suggested that more blu-ray releases of PS2 classic titles will be on the way soon.

Yoshida praised SCE's Santa Monica Studio for coming up with the idea of upgrading God of War and said the reaction has been positive.

"Santa Monica Studios had the brilliant idea to upgrade and improve God of War for PS3 with the God of War Collection that we released last year,"

"There were a lot of positive reactions from consumers in doing that, and now we get a lot of suggestions for types of packs they'd like to see."

At E3 Sony revealed it will be updating and releasing the Sly Cooper collection and it looks like they intend to continue on from there.

"So we are looking to continue to do these HD conversions," Yoshida said.

Although releasing HD collections seems to be highly likely now, the method these games will be delivered is not.

"We are looking into ways how we can deliver the PS2 library to PS3 consumers, but were are not ready to announce anything yet."

These statement add some weight to the rumored Team Ico HD pack featuring ICO and Shadow of The Colossus.
