Gaming Rumor: PS2 Back Catalog Franchises To Be Re-Released On Blu-Ray For The PS3?
Think about it. The PS2 had a lengthy lifespan that spawned several quality franchises such as: Metal Gear Solid, Splinter Cell, GTA3, Silent Hill, Resident Evil, Brothers in Arms, and more. All these titles are totally still playable beyond a nostalgic standpoint and could have new life breathed into them if bundled together and re-released on the PS3 via Blu-Ray disc.
With the recent news of a God of War collection being re-released on Blu-Ray with a framerate increase, resolution upscaling and trophies, some rumblings have other publishers agreeing to the coolness factor of this idea, but not confirming anything. The storage capacity of a Blu-Ray disc alone could make this a very possible scenario for down the line. Sweet!
I think this is a great idea especially if you are a fan of a particular series and want to catch up on past story lines before you play the current title. Hopefully we’ll here more about this sometime soon.
