Up until now, the only way to get a taste of this beloved title on the PlayStation 2 was to go rummaging around in a bargain bin, probably filled with discs that were used as coasters and frisbees. However, another option will be available soon.
According to the PlayStation Blog, Psychonauts will be coming to the PlayStation Network as a PlayStation 2 Classic. It’ll be added to the roster in North America on August 28 in a largely unchanged state from its original release – no graphical upgrade and no trophies. We’re guessing the price will line up will all other PS2 Classics at $9.99, which we will telepathically try to communicate to you… Ok, fine, we’ll just say it. It’s totally worth it.
Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment
Developer: Team Ico/Bluepoint Games
Genre: Action Adventure
Release Date: Sept. 27, 2011
Rated: T – Teen
Ico and Shadow of the Colossus are quite simply two of the greatest PlayStation 2 games ever. The 2001 and 2005 releases more than stand the test of time. They manage to outdo many of the games that are influenced by them. They are as minimal and complex as any games that have been released before, since, and after them. The fact that they got an HD makeover from Bluepoint Games on the PlayStation 3 is icing on the cake as both games look superb with their remastered textures and higher resolution definition. Oh, did I mention that I’ve never played either game? I can now check them off of my bucket list.
