The Sly Cooper series makes its triumphant return this fall with The Sly Collection for the PS3. Developed exclusively for the PS3, The Sly Collection features the original three PS2 action-packed classic hits fully remastered in HD and delivered on a single Blu-Ray Disc. In addition to crisp picture quality and stunning visual graphics, The Sly Collection contains extra features and content, such as Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves in 3-D and all-new PlayStation Move mini-games.

Originally developed by Sucker Punch Productions and remastered by Sanzaru Games, The Sly Collection sees the mischievous raccoon and his gang of eccentric friends pull off daring heists in this entertaining platformer adventure. Packed full with mini-games and thrilling missions from across the globe, The Sly Collection masterfully blends stealth, thievery, combat, strategy and exploration into one huge game. The Sly Collection is scheduled for release in Fall/Winter 2010.

Storyline

Sly Cooper And The Thievus Raccoonus: Born into a family of the world’s greatest thieves, Sly Cooper was given the Thievius Raccoonus, a family heirloom that is passed down from generation to generation containing all of their best-kept secrets. When a gang of ruthless villains steal the Thievius Raccoonus it’s up to Sly and his mischievous friends to reclaim the heirloom and restore the family name.

Sly 2: Band Of Thieves: Two years after Sly Cooper defeated Clockwerk Sly and the gang embark on a mission to rob the Museum of National History of Clockwerk’s parts. They discover the parts of Clockwerk are missing and embark on a quest to ensure Clockwerk is never reassembled.

Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves: Sly and the gang assemble a crew of near friends and old enemies. Together, they attempt to unlock the one great secret Sly’s father kept from him for years – the Cooper family vault. With the tireless Carmelita Fox on his tail and a jealous and maniacal Dr. M attempting to loot the vault, it’ll take a team of skilled thieves to pull off this world class heist.

Key Features

  • Three PS2 classic hits on one Blu-Ray Disc.
  • Remastered in HD.
  • PlayStation Move enhanced mini-games.
  • 3D enhanced for a thrilling gameplay experience.
  • Trophy support for all three games.

I love this new wave of remastered PS2 games. We’ve already had the God Of War Collection and now we have the Sly Collection coming soon. I really hope we see more PS2 games make it onto the PS3. I never played the Sly games but I’ll definitely be getting this since the GOW Collection was half the price of a normal PS3 game and I’m guessing this one will be the same. What excites me most about these remastered games is the trophy support, being the trophy hoarder that I am. But what do you think… would you like to see more PS2 games make it to the PS3? Let us know.
