I have never made a post before about this, usually others beat me to it, but because I chose to get alerted of a price on CAG here, which is pretty neat, here it is.


PS3 Only?:

Is it a sale? New price?

Dunno if it was worth posting, others probably got an alert as well, I dunno. Maybe I shouldn't have posted, maybe some else did already. Anyway... is that a good price or would it get lower? Sorry if not a good post, new to this.

This is seriously worth it a million times over. It'll go lower eventually, but not for a while.

I haven't heard that before. I have the 360 version, but I know people that have the PS3 version that claims it runs flawlessly. The thing runs perfectly on both systems, though I think there might be a bug on some regular old-school CRT TVs for some reason.

I agree with this, I refuse to pay more than $20 for any of these HD collections

I'm still holding out on $20 for this as well. I like DmC, just don't seem worth more than $20 for the set. Especially since Capcom also released a boxed collection of the SD versions on the PS2 for like $30 back in the day.

It's "DMC". "DmC" is the other series. Sorry for nitpicking, but it's a deliberate distinction and a pet peeve of mine.

I don't think this will be at $20 for at least another 6 months, and then for only a brief sale. This is actually the very first sale since being released 2 months ago.

Gonna wait for them to be sold eventually on PSN. I loved DMC back in the day, but I only want to play thru DMC 3 again, so I'm not paying $29.99 for one game.

Has Jak & Daxter been $30 yet? I can't figure out some of these HD Collections. Some plummet right away, and others maintain their value for quite a while.

Anyways, I paid $29 used during a GoHastings sale for this. I'm a sucker for these collections.

Out of stock now.

Still, I'm waiting for a sale on the 360 version, and ideally $20 or less.

My problem with this is its not a full HD remake, Capcom did a lazy job and barely improved visuals

won't take that long there will be deals towards summer end or before school starts. They gotta clear stock prior to the fall game wave.

Yeah for some reason they felt like they didn't need to touch up the cutscenes. WTF is up with that?

The fact that Capcom invested minimal resources in developing this collection allows them to sell 3 games for $40 total rather than selling a complete upgraded version of each game for $60 a piece.

Thats what I read as well. I am waiting for Jak and Daxter to come down and then when Ratchet and Clank come out I will buy it when it goes on sale. I have more confidence they will be true HD remakes.

What I want is a Kingdom Hearts HD Collection. Been forever since I played KH1 and 2. I still have those games but a bit of a hassle just to play them for me at this point.

Anyway, as one mentioned earlier, is the 360 or PS3 version of Devil May Cry HD Collection better? And where would one find that information?

^Lens of Truth is a good resource for bigger releases. Unfortunately they nor I can help you in regards to the DMC Collection.

I hope you're being sarcastic. The Ico/Shadow collection was $40 and that had substantial work done to each game. Similarly, most of the other Sony collections have been well done. There is no excuse for what Capcom did on this one, $40 price tag or not.

Yeah Lens of Truth and Eurogamer do that with bigger releases, just not games like that or lesser games. So it can be hard to find out which one is better. I would think PS3 was since it was on PS2 only back in the day I think, but then again PS2 probably used something similar to 360s structure so I dunno.


As for poor HD collections yeah, some companies do a cruddy lazy job. But some do a good proper job like God of War HD and Shadow/Ico as was mentioned. Then there are those that are outright bad, such as Silent Hill HD, partly because they lost the source code from what I heard so yeah.

The Ico/Shadow collection was $40 and that had substantial work done to each game.


The Ico/Shadow collection also had one less game that had to be ported. The developers also didn't have to spend time and money bringing that collection to two different systems. They could focus solely on the strengths of the PS3. In a way the extras helped to justify the $40 price tag to consumers when other companies were offering 3-game collections for the same price. Plus Sony didn't have to worry about paying any hardware royalties to publish the game. That allowed them a larger profit margin on each disc sold compared to the DMC collection and therefore they could justify investing more the collection's development.
