The Very Best News Ever

The latest issue of Japanese games mag Famitsu confirms what we've been expecting for a long, long time: Team ICO's classic PlayStation 2 adventures Ico and Shadow of the Colossus are getting an HD makeover for the PlayStation 3.

http://kotaku.com/5638207/ico-shadow-of-the-colossus-confirmed-for-playstation-3-re+release

This is the best. This is the BEST!

I love Shadow of the Colossus with all of my heart. Every single inch of it. Every game is compared to it. In my opinion Gears of War didn't have enough horses that had my back no matter WHAT.

Oh god I'm so excited I'm so glad we got my dad a ps3!

    I keep trying to get into SoTC, but I always kinda feel like a dick picking fights with these gargantuan things that don't want to be bothered, just because a voice told me to kill them.

    Oh, hey, maybe now you guys can play the new game+ version of ICO with the enhanced puzzles and better AI and translated speech and stuff. I presume the HD ICO will be based on the European release?

    While I liked God of War I II and III a whole whole bunch, this game and that game are worlds and worlds and worlds apart

    First of all there are only 16 enemies in the whole game

    All I want is the watermelon ending

    I really don't want translated speech, and if it's there, I won't use it

    I like the sound of my gibberish language and like the idea of the story being conveyed without words I know

    It's coming

    The whole reason behind doing HD versions of these old games is pretty much based on God of War Collection's success

    It took them seven weeks total to port both of those onto one disc and they made bank off of it

    Yeah, both franchises are awesome in their own rights.

    Big epic-scale battles are awesome, but sometimes I just wanna run up and stab something in the face without having to grapple my way up it's ass first.

    Picked up Ico on day one of release after playing the shit out of the demo that came in an issue of OPM (and the solution to that puzzle was different in the final game! Awesome!)

    I remember being so bummed looking at the awful box art, because I wasn't really too into using the Internet back then and hadn't actually seen it beforehand

    Yes, this

    Uncharted 2 is probably the best game on the system, you know, technically speaking and all

    But Infamous is straight-up the most fun game I've played this entire gen

    okay well there's exactly eleven billion games where you do that

    but they won't be as well made or as loving as sotc or ico
