    Oh goodie, you bought 7 ps2 games for a way more expensive price than you would have paid for the actual ps2 version if Sony hadnt taken away backwards compatability. A feature that Sony once touted as a selling point.

    When you walk for example? Its the same wave cosine effect with varying amplitude, it pretty easy to stretch a mesh along its height in a a shader, Im still not seeing what your seeing obviously. Or when you slide? You'll notice that effect fades pretty quickly, and again,like most snow boarding games, its easy to implement when your using the one color.

    It's in HD so it does have an actual great selling point. I bought Ico Collection and Jak and Daxter Collection for $20 each. That is actually a lot cheaper than buying the originals.

    All Xbox 1 titles BC titles are "HD" upscaled on the 720 with full MSAA.
    Day one feature.

    The only HD collections Ive bought are DMC and MGS, for the obvious reasons.

    I doubt that. Most ps2 games I've seen lately were about $10.

    If Journey's swirling sand effect so simple, then why didn't you think of it first? The beauty of Journey's sand rendering is not about how complex or demanding it is. It's the fact that it is a simple yet very convincing sands effect. They found a really great way of rendering amazing looking sand. Stop being a negative nancy.

    So then these PS3 HD Collections are the same price as their PS2 counterpart but with much, much better visuals.

    From what I've heard and seen the visuals are anywhere from only marginally better to not at all. And if you bought those games for 20 bucks each then that would be double the price of the ps2 originals (10 bucks each) not the same. Do the math.

    Whoever you heard this from is just lying. All of the HD collection look much better than the original PS2 releases. The jump to HD alone makes the visuals so much better, and some are even at full 60fps like the Jak and Daxter Collection. And no, an HD collections game with two to three HD games on it for $20 is definitely not double the price of paying $10 per respective title included in the PS3's HD Collections disc. Maybe it is you who needs to fix your math. You too, like Mynn, need to not be so negative and try checking some out. The jump to HD does a lot more justice to these games than most would realize.

    Its been used in tonnes of games, it just normally not sand colored, and set against a similar color background.

    The games do benefit from being in HD though, a good Collection would also run better
    While some do benefit from upgrades even the ones that don't look better simply because they are in HD
    Most collections are from classic games, some are dirt cheap while others are silly prices, so a collection of them is tempting, especially when they are a better then the original, but yes games like Silent Hill are a different story

    The Sly Collection is the best IMO, HUGE difference especially 3, if the new one looked exactly the same as that I'd be happy, the new 3Dish look isn't as nice from what I've seen but we'll see.

    The best looking HD remake I've seen so far is Halo CE Anniversary on the 360. Now thats a graphical remake done right.

    I have to agree with this. They nailed it good too.

    i'd hazard a guess to it being PS3 exclusive, so it automatically becomes better and being by a fanboy dev only adds to the spin on the game.
    but it is... a great looking game, just not the best EVER...

    I never use BC on my Xbox even though I have Xbox original games. I will never use it with Xbox 3 or PS4 either.

    Good point. It's something I've always liked knowing I have, but thinking back the only PS2 game I ever played on BC with my phatty was MGS3. Since then Konami have released the HD collection so I have no use for it now

    But again, I'd still like to have it just..to have it. It wouldn't bother me if next gen didn't have it though

    It might not be technically, but it's definitely a great looking game. With its art design, it will stand the test of time more than other technically great games.

    I used BC all the time on my phat, so I love the HD Collections except the Konami half assed ones. I also buy the PS2 Classics as well with no improvements, but since I'm trying to get all my games digitally now I'd be doing this even if the slim had 100% backwards compatible. I sell the discs in order to pay for the PS3/PSN versions anyway so I'm not losing anything (except the FF/GTA games, I'll keep those discs for collection purposes, especially my black label FF7 copies from each region).
