Thinking about picking one up again. Not seen it this low in a long time, figured I'd share. Always see this sell for ~20 everywhere.

EDIT:

It's up to 16.82 now.

Maybe as soon as TGS.

Shadow of the Colossus should be considered essential gaming for anyone interested in video games.

If they do, will the sealed black label one I have be worth anything?

Probably not. Check out what happened to Marvel vs. Capcom 2 when it was released for current gen consoles :

Dropped from $110 to $29 and is still dropping.

I was still able to get a decent value out of my black label SoTN, it probably varies per game...

The SoTN remake was considered slightly inferior to the original. /shrug

Picked up my copy used at BBV for 6.99. I'd already played and beaten it, but it's so neat.

It's insane I saw a copy of this USED at gamestop for $39 today. Idjits. :)

Edit: Got Shadow mixed up with ICO. So no it's not $39. Ugh carry on. I'm the idjit. :)

Not worth it. SotC has to be one of the crappiest, most overrated games I've ever played. And it seriously runs at like 10 frames per second; it's the choppiest gameplay experience I've ever had on PS2.



couldnt beat it huh?

Interesting comment -- I tend to agree with you, though. I didn't hate SotC but I didn't particularly love it like critics did. Yes, the visuals were impressive and the whole process of clearing one boss after another held a certain charm, but the gameplay was at times frustrating (not knowing where to go), and that camera -- yikes -- it sometimes panned too far out I could barely even see myself on the screen.

An HD version might make it smoother but I'm not sure it'll be any prettier.

Personally, I hate all these HD remakes on the PS3. It just feels like another opportunity for developers to milk us on a game we already own. Yeah, yeah, I know -- you're probably thinking, "dude, just don't buy it then." And sure, I won't buy these. What ticks me off though is that these HD rehashes require development teams and that means more time spent re-making old games rather than allocating resources towards new ones.

Thanks for the hyperbole there. Not everyone need to play a game that's 90% horse riding simulator and 10% clunky action platformer with no story until the end.

I... don't even know where to start with this.

I didn't think Shadow of the Colossus's awesomeness was in dispute. I suppose if you played it on a 20" TV with no sound system hooked up, had not played a game with similar controls before, had a traumatic childhood experience with horses, and were using a 3rd party controller with a broken triangle button, MAYBE you might not like it.

I doubt it really. Marvel vs capcom 2 dropped rapidly, used copies of god of war 1 and 2 dropped (not that they were high to begin with) and so on.

If they officially announce it I would run to ebay and offload it while you can so you get the most out of it.

Unless your like me and you dont get rid of your games and keep them because you like them, in which case dont sell it.

Shadow of the Colossus is really overrated. Annoying camera, framerate issues occasionally, not much to do besides fight the next colossus, and controls that take time to get used to. At the same time, it's not every one's cup of tea because they might just want the next Legend of Zelda, which it's not.

SoTC was one of my favorite gaming experiences of all time. It was the desolate atmosphere and the "less is more" story that pulled me in. It's not for everyone, though.

Great deal, BTW, for those that haven't played. Would love an HD remake.

Both Ico and SotC are way overrated by some. Decent, but far from masterpieces. That said, I would pick up SotC at this price.
