For the first few years of the PlayStation 3’s lifespan consumers were worried about the lack of backward compatibility on all but the premium 60GB models. Sony answer was to release HD, upgraded PlayStation 2 collections beginning with the God of War: Collection. Now The Sly Collection is only a few days from joining the elite.
The Sly Collection has received a confirmed release date of November 9th in North America – worryingly the same day as Call of Duty: Black Ops. This collection of well-received PS2 classics will include Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus, Sly 2: Band of Thieves, and Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves all remastered in HD with 3D support. As previously announced by Sony, this package will also include four never-before-seen minigames with PlayStation Move support.
The release confirmation was accompanied by an official The Sly Collection Release Trailer which can be seen below:
