    Don't get me wrong, I really like this game- I still play the original pretty often- but how many times are we going to "HD Remake" the same game?

    This was the only good part of the Sony conference, and now I'm buying a PS4.

    This is awesome news! But I also agree with TedEH. These companies just have to milk something for all that they can nowadays.

    Fumito Ueda may have realized that taking 9 years to remake Ico but replace the female with a Colossus sized dog didn't make as much revenue as his most successful game, and opted to straight up re-releasing his most successful game. :lol:

    Still, Shadow the Colossus is a masterpiece so I guess it's nice for all the guys who missed out the first time

    To be fair, if I had a PS4, I would probably buy both of those games. Buuuuuut still.

    Same. I mean, I'd have done it for the FF7 remake as well.

    4K is really going to make the 15 minute drive to the next colossus a lot more bearable.

    I've been telling my friends how badly I wanted this game to be remade for so long now so this has me excited as fuck, I missed out on this when it was first released so I'll for sure be picking this up. Between this, the Crash Bandicoot remake, Anthem and the Horizon: Zero Dawn dlc I'm going to have no free time:banana:

    Question:

    Can this game only be played on the PS4 Pro on a 4K screen or on all PS4's? Reason I'm asking is because I'm assuming that if the trailer is in 4K, that it can only be played on the Pro with a 4K screen.

    Sony said they weren't going to have exclusives for the PS4 Pro, so presumably this is playable on a regular PS4. They didn't actually call it SotC 4k or anything like that, either, and places offering preorders are only specifying PS4. The trailer is in 4k because games are being made in 4k now and can therefore be shown off that way.

    The game will work on PS4, if only because the Pro currently makes up less than 10% of PS4s.

    That's good to hear. I've always had a interest in this game but never got a chance to play it. The idea of beating enemies that big with primitive weapons seems really challenging but rewarding.
