We’re in a time where franchises are coming along nicely with the number of games that are being released. Way back in the day you’d be hard pressed to find a package that collected a number of games in a series and put them onto one cart or disc (“Super Mario All-Stars” is one of the earliest examples), these days it seems to be happening all the time.
Playstation is at it again, and we’ve got to give them credit, taking popular franchises and releasing the games in that franchise as a package is a smart and great idea. This allows for players who’ve never played the games to get the complete stories of these franchises, and it makes it cheaper on their wallets. Also it gives fans a chance to replay some of the greatness Sony has going on.
Sony announced today via it’s PlaystationBlog that two new collections are coming out as part of its “Playstation Collections” line. The first is “God of War Saga”, which takes all three of the console “God of War” titles and pairs them up with “God of War Origins”, which came out for the PSP. The game will also have what they’re calling “exclusive bonus content”, but didn’t list specifics. The collection is being “remastered for HD” and all of them will have trophy support.
The other game to be getting this treatment is the “Infamous” series. The first two games in the series along with the PSN game “Festival of Blood” are being put together along with “extra missions”. Sony also says the game will come with “additional character costumes, power ups, and weapon styles”.
Both games will be priced to move at $30. Those of you who don’t want to buy the complete packages you can get the games individually but the extra content won’t be available for the games. There’s no concrete release date for the games but we’re betting they’ll be out before the holidays.
Sony went onto say that they will have more “additional news in the coming weeks” about other franchises that will be getting joining the PlayStation Collections line. Another series already in the program is “Ratchet & Clank”, so we’re expecting more Sony titles to make the jump.
Who’s up for “Crash Bandicoot” HD?
