Red Dead Redemption Gets Co-Op Trophies

From RDR Free Trophy Patch to Digital Daredevils - News Roundup 30th May 2010

Rockstar's fantastically-successful open world western will be receiving several new cooperative trophies as part of a free expansion. The Outlaws to the End pack will be free to download as of next month, and contains a whole mess of new missions and trophies to team up and take advantage of; including cooperatively rafting down a river and killing shoreside enemies to raiding a gold mine for fun and profit. The 10 new trophies include awards for cumulatively completing co-op missions and achieving high scores and kill chains.

Rockstar hasn't revealed whether or not the Xbox 360 will receive the same treatment yet. Here's hoping. [VG247]

would love to see some more psone titles given the hd treatment,especially ridge racer,ridge racer revolution and rage racer,made me by my first ps

Metal Gear Solid would be awesome. MGS1 would be good but wouldn't pass up MGS2 or 3 either!

Hopefully they'll do the first one though as the 2nd and 3rd already have decent enough graphics, being high quality PS2 games. It'd be nice to see the first one jazzed up a bit!

SSX in HD would be sweet. At the moment there isn't an equivalent type of game.

Matt Gardner  May. 30, 2010 at 22:49

I know it's not a PS2 game, but Grim Fandango. In HD.

It'll never happen, but I can still pray and hope!

People are missing the obvious!

Final Fantasy VII.

Well, rumours of an HD re-release are as old as the PS3 itself. In fact, an HD FFVII cutscene was used as a PS3 tech demo!

It'll probably happen at some point- but it'll have to be done right or not at all. The incoming re-release of FFIX could tide you over 'til then.

The 2 Parasite eve games especially number 2 would be a good idea to redo in HD and maybe the Grand theft auto games on PS2, depends on how much better they could make it look.

Gunn  May. 31, 2010 at 10:01

A Kingdom Hearts collection is a strong possibility especially if KH3 was to be announced this year (hopefully at E3!)

Resident Evil already had an update on the GC, I think MGS did too, and they both did a better job than Sony did with God of War who didn't even bother updating the cutscenes.
