[Rumor] PS3 Hitman HD Collection leaked by retailer
It looks like Hitman will be the next franchise to cash in on the HD remake compilation craze or at least according to Italian retailer 16Games it will.
The online store describes this collection as a HD do-over of the previous PC and PS2 compilation The Hitman Triple Pack (which contains Hitman 2, Hitman 3, and Hitman: Blood Money) and lists it as a PS3 exclusive with an October 15 release date and €30, or $37 price tag.
Square Enix and Edios have yet to comment on this product posting, so like many “retail leaks” before it, we’ll be stamping it with the trusty rumor label until we get some kind of official word from the publisher or developer.
Considering the release of Hitman: Absolution will happen only a little over a month after this “release,” its existence is definitely plausible but the October 15 release date is kinda odd. I mean don’t European games usually launch on Fridays? Also, why no Hitman 1?
Regardless, what do you think Hitman fans? Would you be willing to buy these games again (perhaps for the second time), to play them in high definition?
I agree but in my opinion some levels in the early games were just subpar. For example, after I got a disguise without being caught in one level and the guards still recognized me when I walked past them (both without visible weapons and with the standard weapon of the guards) it just put me off from trying to do that level seriously.
It was so unintuitive that they would recognize me with a disguise that I just wanted to move on to the next level. And back then you didn't get a rating for each level (wasn't that for Blood Money or was that just the money system for upgrading weapons? Can't remember).
Unless they update all the games with the Blood Money engine I don't think I'll want to play through the early ones again. Possibly the first just for the nostalgia factor.
along with Metal gear, Re 4& CV, sly cooper, & prince of persia. The graphics do look a little better(MGS3 for example had a much smoother framerate), but all the devs did was increase the brightness, sharpness, and make the resolution larger. They didn't re-design or re-render the games in HD.
Yeah, I know. I was kinda half joking when I said it.
God of War and SotC right?
Blood money was the worst of the 3 listed. Just wait til you play Hitman 2... your mind will explode that game is sooo amazing.
How can you not have heard of hitman? The 2nd game is one of the greatest titles ever made.
You are scored for how well you did, obviously you did the worst score for every level if you run and gun. Earning the Silent assasin rank is no easy task, and you feel very satisfied when you earn it. If you only play through a game once you wouldn't like hitman, its more like tony hawk re playing levels trying to get the best score.
this is hitman not mass effect, its about giving us decently sized freeroam levels to conduct assassinations in and have an endless amount of ways to get the job done. The story is a just Blah blah to give a reason behind what hes doing. for my taste they would get rid of the story and instead focus solely on great levels.
I'll have the final verdict when I play it, but so far, out of all of the "HD-collections" I've seen, maybe 2 were actually HD.
I've always thought of Hitman Contracts as the only weak game in the series. It quite simply failed to live up to the previous two games and felt more like an unnecessary remake than a real sequel. Even though the original Hitman Codename 47 had it's share of faults it's still a great game and somehow they managed to remove that greatness from Hitman Contracts. It was way too dark. An outright depressing experience that mostly changed things that didn't need to be changed and didn't offer any improvements what so ever over Hitman 2 Silent Assassin. Oh well. At least Hitman Blood Money was a fantastic game. Looking forward to Absolution.
I wish... and hence why I posted it.
*Not being made by Ubisoft*
No, its real.
Okay, did you make that? Well done, that was quite funny.
Say it with me now....BETRAYAL!!!
What about for the story?
Hitman 3 revisited several of the first games highlights via flashbacks. There is no need for the first one.
I wonder if this is just another fake-HD collection.
I bought the PS2 collection years back.
"Also, why no Hitman 1?"
Because Hitman 1 was never released on the Ps2
Amen to that...
