I should tell you that this deal is for an American NTSC version of the game, but it's nearly a tenner cheaper than any of the UK copies. The PS3 is multi-region and I have this version of the game myself and it works fine. You really should pick up this beautifully remastered HD trilogy of the PS2's greatest platforming series. It's generously packed with collectibles and a series of open maps to explore inbetween hours of classic heisting with the Cooper gang. Blending stealth, brute force and sneaky gadgetry the experience never grows stale.
It has taken a while, but the HD re-releases of the Sly Cooper series have finally fallen below the £20 mark. The price cut from Base makes it almost a fiver cheaper than the next cheapest offer at TheHut, giving you not only a nice little saving, but an excuse to discover (or rediscover) the antics of the racoon thief. Containing the three releases from the PS2 era, each game will have you going between stealth, platforming, and defeating your foes across the city, and let’s be honest, who doesn’t want to take part in a heist? Thanks to damoxuk @ HUKD!
Cards on the table: I missed out on Sly Cooper the first time around. Luckily for me, the cult series is back in one easy package and wrapped in a luscious HD presentation to boot. New Move functionality and some minigames help to refresh the platforming, pilfering action... and of course, all-important trophy support will give you further incentive to play them all over again. The Sly Collection helped to set the HD trilogy trend on the PS3- and long may it continue!
Before Infamous, Sucker Punch had made a name for itself with the Sly Cooper series, and the titular raccoon thief is back, this time in glorious HD on the PS3. The Sly Trilogy Collection features Thievius Racconus, Band of Thieves and Honour Among Thieves, the latter of which is 3D-compatible, not to mention an entire roster of Playstation Move mini-games. It's not due until the 26th, and order to shave a few quid off the price, you'll once again need to call on the Walkers website, fill in the Rainy Day survey, and then apply for the 10% Zavvi voucher.
With over 800 games on show at E3 2010, some were always going to fall between the cracks of coverage as we all clamoured over the like of Gears 3, Killzone 3, Halo, Need for Speed, Call of Duty, Zelda, Kinect and Move. We’ve covered our picks of the big games, so let’s have a look at some other titles that we feel deserve a little push too.
As the name should indicate, this little title is looking like quite the vicious bastard. The comic-book style visuals look stunning even in motion with the character animation looking super slick in this 2D action platformer. Think of it like Metal Slug, but a lot more stab-happy. Shank will involve a lot of climbing and jumping across rooftops. The way Shank jumps with two blades arched over his head, ready to pounce on enemies is sinister as hell. We’ve seen him use pistols too, with which he can dual aim left and right with ease. You get the feeling he’d prefer to get up close and personal though.
