This one has been rumored for a while but only now has Sony made it official during TGS 2010. Check out what will be in store. Two of PlayStation® 2’s highly acclaimed action adventure games return and remastered in high definition for the PlayStation ® 3. Team ICO brings you the ICO and Shadow of Colossus Collection.
Enter a world of enchantment and wonder, where once was, is nevermore. ICO, a mysterious boy, has been expelled from his village to an isolated castle. Within his confines, he begins to have eerie dreams of rescuing a young princess from the evil spirits that dwell within the fortress. Blurring the lines between fantasy and reality, ICO embarks on a quest to save the princess and along the way, discovers his own cryptic fate.

This is quite a deal, two games for the price of one and on a single disc no less. Ico and Shadow of Colossus are oldies but goodies and if you like great puzzles and great gameplay then you will enjoy this one. Even in HD it will look dated of course, but I assure you that at the time of their original release, both were ahead of their time. So who’s grabbing it when it drops?
