All Articles: The Sly Collection
This is not your typically massive update to the PlayStation Store. But this week’s new batch of games does include one of the most highly anticipated games of 2014: Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs. Players will be able to take control of hacker Aiden Pearce on the PS3 or PS4 as he hacks his way across Chicago performing hacks against the dangerous group of hackers that hacked up his family. Oh, and Pearce can also put his hack license to good use by hijacking a cab and driving it around. He does a lot of hacking is what I’m saying.
Also available this week is the latest episode of Telltale’s Fables adaptation, The Wolf Among Us: In Sheep’s Clothing. Bigby is huffing and puffing in search of a killer but he doesn’t even realize that he’s joined on the PlayStation Store this week by one of the greatest thieves of all time as Sly Cooper comes to the Vita in The Sly Collection. Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus, Sly 2: Band of Thieves, and Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves have all been remastered, remade, and compiled for Sony’s handheld at a nice price ($29.99).
Speaking of the Vita… three other games are also available for Sony’s handheld this week. There’s the dungeon-crawling RPG Mind Zero from Aksys Games, the grid-based RPG Monster Monpiece from Idea Factory, and the lovable hijinks of Lemmings Touch.
After all the delays and all the hype, Ubisoft is finally ready to release Watch Dogs this week. Can the first adventure of Aiden Pearce live up to gamer’s expectations? We’ll all find out together on the PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One this week. If you’re thinking about picking it up, don’t forget, the game will launch with exclusive content on the PlayStation platforms.
Watch Dogs won’t be available for the Wii U until the Fall, but Wii U owners will still get a major new game to play this week as Nintendo will release Mario Kart 8 for their newest console on May 30. With 32 tracks and 30 characters, it’s one of the largest Mario Kart games ever.
Finally this week, two new games will be released for Sony’s PlayStation Vita. Mind Zero is a dungeon crawler from Aksys Games and The Sly Collection will compile Sly Cooper and The Thievius Raccoonus, Sly 2: Band of Thieves, and Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves into one package.
Sony is compiling the biggest hits of two of their most beloved characters for Vita owners this May.
The God of War Collection will be available on May 6 and it will bundle together Kratos’ two PS2 outings: God of War and God of War II. The compilation will be priced at $29.99. And if you want, you can head over to the PlayStation Blog and watch as Sony Santa Monica’s Cory Barlog loses his mind over the announcement.
Sony has also announced that The Sly Collection will be released for the Vita on May 27. It is currently without a price, but the collection will include all three of Sly’s PS2 games: Sly Cooper and the Thievius Racconus, Sly 2: Band of Thieves, and Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves.
Cory Barlog had no comment on The Sly Collection.
Sony has slyly updated the PlayStation Store with all three games from The Sly Collection, available individually and as a three-game bundle.
Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus, Sly 2: Band of Thieves, and Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves are available to download for $9.99 each and include Trophies, high definition graphics, and a 3D viewing option. At $29.99, The Sly Collection bundle is actually more expensive (by two pennies!) than buying all three games separately.
Also available this week is a multiplayer action game based on Voltron: Defender of the Universe, the theatrical trivia of Scene It? Movie Night, and two more “PS3 Full Games”: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and De Blob 2.
Finally, this week sees the release of the PSone Classic Darkstalkers (vampire fighting, woo!) and the PS2 Classic Tak 2: Staff of Dreams.
