Sorry what i meant was its back down to £34.99 it went up to £43. Ill edit the title

Thanks, pre-ordered. Looking forward to this a lot. just wish they could have put Crash Team Racing in to complete the set. I know it's a different kind of game (racing vs platforming) but would have rounded it off nicely. Maybe DLC if there is enough demand though I guess most people remember the initial trilogy as the CTR was pretty late in the PS1s life if I remember rightly.

Saw the original games vs the remasters footage on digital foundry (on youtube) and the work they have done with it looks very impressive indeed. Of course three full generations on you would expect the graphics to be better but they seem to have managed to maintain the style and character of the originals too which isn't so easy....

it'll become cheaper closer to release, expect between 26 and at most 30

During one of those PSX things the developers said they would love to remaster CTR, so they know there's a demand. Fingers crossed, would love to be able to play the worlds greatest kart racer in HD on a PS4.

Yeah i would have liked CTR and crash bash as well but at least these look like really good remasters. Hopefully theres enough interest in these games so that they start making good crash games again.

Heat added, waiting for it to drop still got a backlog of games

There will be the demand. I still play that with mates now. Such a good laugh! (_;)

No official release date yet is there?

the ps1 crashes were about 2 hours long if even so say 5 hours game play from all 3 games for 34.99 another money grabber fail.

£32:99 at GameSeek

Wife loves this and ordered.

She's excited, what she forgets is that she doesn't own a ps4!

Amazing, so excited for this! Didn't hear it was being remastered, thanks op

These figures would suggest you're talking rubbish... howlongtobeat.com/gam…969

Average completion time of 6.5hrs for the first game (which rises to 11hrs if you're a completionist), 6hrs for the second game's main story and 7.5hrs for part 3.

Awesome game but anything over £20 is a complete rip off

Crash Bandicoot was the best thing about Uncharted 4, so I'm looking forward to this.

Why? It's 3 full games in one all remastered with easily 20 hours plus total playtime. Just because it isn't a big blockbuster franchise like COD or Battlefield doesn't mean it's not worth your cash....

I'll wait until its less than a tenner on download. I ain't paying more than a tenner for three upscaled PS1 games.

Standards have changed. They were good games for their time but are mediocre now. They are PS1 games and your saying they are worth as much as games built from the ground up PS4 games smh.

I'm guessing that this will be released as a budget title anyway like the last ratchet game. So it might even be £30 on release anyway.

New art, sound, animation all from scratch, so "upscaled PS1 games" is a bit of a loose term to the guy above. The other guy saying they were 2 hours long, I think you were playing them wrong mate. I also still think they hold their appeal and are good games in their own right now, as there's been a distinct lack of solid platformers in recent generations. Hopefully this gets kids who weren't around 1st time hooked and there's enough appeal for a full scale reboot. Great childhood memories from these games, and I play them on my Pi3 and don't feel they are "mediocre" these days, they're a classic.

No, he's saying that 3 of them are worth paying a reasonable fee for. A fee that's less than every new PS4 game. By all means disagree but stop misrepresenting the reality of it.

They aren't upscaled. They're completely rebuilt.

Nah

If you still have your old PS2 copy you can take it into any branch of GAME and they will insert a microchip on the disc so that is will play on a PS4 free of charge. Was told this today so I'm off to game tomorrow.

£35 for PS1 remakes? cold.

horsepills

Nah


You can't compare this with those original games, this is a remake, using the exact level designs and audio etc, the price isn't reasonable as it is the same price for a fresh new game.

Nope.

It's the same price for 3 completely rebuilt games as it is for a single, probably several months old, modern title.

It's entirely reasonable.

That makes it even worse because it won't ever feel like the same games on top of ancient PS1 designs made by some outsourced company on the cheap.

Couldn't have put it better myself. Could you imagine CTR with online play!?

really looking forward to playing this, but... Not willing to pay over 20 quid since it is still basically a ps1 game reskinned... i'd wait for it to go to a tenner but knowing sony, that will never happen

darkspace100

​agree, Which is why we shouldn't be pre-ordering it... 35 quid is too much simple as that, people who pre-order games are just being foolish... especially with games that are not "online" and basically have no expiry date, since the price drops after the release date dramatically once it's been out a month or 2.

People on here saying it's not worth the money when we know this will be an amazing looking game with hours of fun yet most new PS4 games have neither of those things going for them and fall in price within a month or two. We need more fun games that you can play with your mates and if that means remaking a classic then so be it.

2 hours? Hahahahahaha what a joke! These games required skill to play through, each level was uniquely different and superbly designed, and had tons of replayability from the usual crystals, the different types of gem, the power ups, the time trial different types of sapphire, even the secret levels and alternative endings. Even the death scenes were a mastery to behold, probably what inspired the death scenes in Uncharted especially UC 4. Naughty Dog made three platformers which improved on each other and the huge standard of them were well before their time, if something like it was released today it would be praised throughout the gaming community.

Exactly especially with how prices go down so quickly even for good games theres no reason to buy games full price anymore.
