Sly Collection headed to PSN?

After rumours began to circulate over the past few days, a listing on the European ratings board has appeared for all 3 Sly games.

On the PEGI website, ratings have been granted for Sly Raccoon, Sly 2: Band of Thieves and Sly 3: Honour Among Thieves over the last week or so. There is no listing for the trilogy as a whole, suggesting the PS2 classics will only be available on an individual basis over the PSN.

Past HD collections that have appeared both at retail and on PSN include God of War Collection volumes I & II, Splinter Cell Trilogy and Prince of Persia Trilogy.

Would you be interested in downloading these great games? How much would you pay for them? Leave a comment below.

[UPDATE: (credit to DavefromPhilly for the spot) Glen Egan, president of Senzaru Games, confirmed the news via a comment on the PS Blog. One commenter asked whether the titles could make their way to the PSN any time and Glen quickly replied with this –

“We are very excited to announce that the Sly Collection will be available for download from the PS Store on November 29th (Just 2 weeks!). And of course, all three titles feature trophy support, smooth 60 frames a second frame rate and they are all playable in 3D. You can purchase the Sly Collection for $29.99 or you can buy the individual titles for $9.99 each. (I am sure if you buy and play one, you will buy and play them all!) So if you have not had a chance to play the new Sly Collection on Blu-ray or you just want to revisit your one favorite original Sly Cooper game then check them out on the PSN on the 29th.”]

  • I much rather have them on disc. For several reasons. 1) You can often find them on sale. 2) Don’t have to worry about HDD space. 3) Content is always yours, never know about digital stuff. 4) And for people like me who lives in a country where bandwidth caps play a big part, downloading one or all of these would put a damper on my bandwidth limit.

  • It was also announced on a US PS Blog post when the developer was talking about Sly 4. It’s coming November 29.

    I already have them on the disc, but I just wanted to say how odd it was that they are being sold for 29.99…the exact same price I bought them for on the disc. I’m not against buying a new larger hard drive to buy digital games from, but at least have some kind of discount. As Stoff said, those discs go on sale quickly on places like Amazon and such.
