Having PS3, I will never through a single stone into neither of these games, so much of love they brung about and HD-quality is really worthy, although there are some bits of controversy about SotC difficulty level, that personally I think indeed did grew in comparision the PS2 version, still it does not mean anything wrong: because, after all, the most important thing is its pure pleasure of gaming process, perfected worlds and storylines, and if you are a true hard core gamer that goes after trophies — then deal with what you have: the more difficult the trophies are, the more glorious is your achievement! (this thought reminds me of the Gran Turismo 5 trophies, some which still are out of my reach, and who knows, might be never achieved: just be realistic, it is all about how good we are as gamers, not how bad the games or developers are (^_^) Peace, and play these games! Especially if you've never played them — you gotta experience them !
But I'm not rating the original games so much as the value that has been added by reissuing them in this format. Yes, in the absence of backward compatibility it was a necessity, I guess, but it was also an opportunity to improve the games instead of just cashing in. Sony has done a little bit to improve textures, and they've thrown in token 3D support, but the graphics aren't all that improved over the original PS2 release. More importantly, I'm put off by the fact that, after all these years, you still can't reverse the Y-axis in Ico. The controls over all aren't as improved as I might have hoped. If SotC ever had an Achilles' Heel, it was that the controls could feel a little sluggish and counter-intuitive, but I always put that down to the age of the game and the horsepower available on the PS2. Years later, on the vastly more powerful PS3, the controls are not configurable and that sluggish quality remains.
SotC remains one of my all-time faves, but on buying it a second time I assumed it would have been improved more than it has. Ico? It's a slower game and I just can't seem to get into it with the Y-axis locked as it is.
So... they're great games, but it feels a little like a missed opportunity to me.
