New PS2 Greatest Hits

I just read over at Cheapassgamer that there is a new batch of PS2 Greatest Hits coming out any day now. It looks like a pretty decent lineup.

Shadow of the Collossus
Jak X
Sly Cooper 3
Ratchet Deadlocked
Socom III


I actually saw Shadow of the Collossus in the Greatest Hits packaging at Best Buy today. It still rang up at 39.99 though.

I think I will be picking up Shadow of the Collossus I liked it when I played the demo.

I'll be picking up SOCOM 3 and SotC as well. Too bad it wasn't in time for the CC 2 for $30 sale.

But when do you think CC will have the correct price in the system?

I picked up a non GH Shadow of the Collossus today for $14.99 after GGC at BB today.

I am glad I was able to hold out.

They are all 19.99 at Best Buy now. I picked up non Greatest Hits versions of Socom and Shadow of the Collossus.

Picked up Ratchet 4 and POP 3 for $30 at CC today - the new prices went into their system (for the new GH titles) today.

Cool. I 'll be sure to get those except for Socom III. Never played any of the previous Socom games so I'm not sure if I'd like it.

How is Jak X? Does it compare to Crash Team Racing (PS1) and the Mario Kart series? I always wanted to try this, and now I'm really tempted ...

So I grabbed a copy of Shadow of the Collossus this weekend, and got a little ways into it. I like it, but I guess I'm kind of confused why everyone says this game has great graphics? The colossi look good, but the environments look like something a PS1 copy of Tomb Raider coughed up.

I briefly owned the game, and while I think the characters DID look a bit janky, the sheer size and scale was something I'd never experienced before. That's what people are referring to.

Especially the colossi - the...well, shit that was growing out of them got pretty crazy as you move along.

I've been meaning to rent, "Shadow of the Colossus," for a while now. I think I replied earlier in this thread, saying that I'd possibly buy Socom III. I really want to play it online, now that I have high-speed internet (I've owned the first one for a while, but I just got high-speed a few months ago and I figured everyone would have moved on to the second or third games.)

Would the USB cable from the 360 work for the PS2? I assume it would, but I just want to make sure before I consider buying the game (not that I wouldn't also play the single player missions.)
