The Sly Collection Sneaks onto PS3 November 9th

58 7

It seems like E3 was just yesterday and I was rolling out details on The Sly Collection to you along with some screenshots. This time I am back with not only more screenshots but a very cool new video put together by my good friends at SCEA that re-introduces the story behind Sly Cooper and his gang. But, most of all, I’m here to let you know when you can purchase The Sly Collection: the game ships just under 2 weeks from now on November 9 for the totally sweet price of $39.99!

The Sly Collection is a single Blu-ray disc that includes all 3 of the original Sly Cooper games: Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus, Sly 2: Band of Thieves, and Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves. All three games have been completely remastered to play back in widescreen HD and 3D.

But wait; there’s more! We are also including a set of 4 custom minigames playable with the new PlayStation Move in full HD and 3D. We wanted to add a little more multiplayer fun to the Sly Collection and with the advent of the PlayStation Move motion controller we figured this was a perfect opportunity. There are 4 minigames on the disk, one each for Sly, Bentley, Murray, and Carmelita. Each minigame captures an aspect of the character and presents it in a way that’s great fun to play with the PlayStation Move, but you can also enjoy with your DualShock controller. And of course like everything else in The Sly Collection you can play it all in 3D! (cue echo effect)

We at Sanzaru Games are all huge fans of the Sly Cooper franchise; it has been an honor to work with the super cool folks at Sucker Punch to bring the Sly Collection to you. Sly, Bentley and Murray are such great characters and the games have such a great sense of humor, we can’t wait to see them thrust back into the spotlight. So without further ado, check out the latest trailer and delve further in to the Sly Cooper legend!

  • For some reason I thought this was coming out next year.

  • yup this 3 games define my ps2 childhood. if trophies existed on ps2 ill platinum all 3 of them :D

  • Loved the first game, never finished the second and never played the third. Can’t wait.

    Call of what?

  • Oh and Ratchet collection already.

    k thx by

  • never played the Sly games but my nephew used to love them, I’ll be picking this up for my kids

  • Trophies? I would assume so

  • Nice, a release date…now how about one for GT5?

  • Man, so many good games in so little time! Ghost of Sparta, SingStar Dance, The Sly Collection,
    Assassins Creed Brotherhood and maybe a couple weeks after that just maybe Gran Turismo 5!

  • @6 Yes, you get to Platinum all 3 games. WOOHOO!!!


  • Never got a chance to play the originals, I’m looking forward to this!

  • I’m really excited for this, its a great series (worthy of the post yesterday about the best PS2 games) and its all three remastered for $40! Thats a ridiculously good deal, I can’t wait!

    Is it true that each game has its own trophy set with its own platinum? That’d be awesome.

  • Finally, been waiting for the release date. Can’t wait to get it

    • Hi there,

      The trailer footage is grabbed from game builds earlier in development, we have since worked on many optimisations to bring the frame rate up to 60.



  • I will get this when I finally get a 3-D tv.

  • As long as Move is NOT required to play this collection or earn trophies, then its all fine.

    • Hi there,

      Move controllers are not required to earn any trophies in the game, but it is a bunch of fun to play the minigames with them!



  • I’m getting this, never really dig those games its a great opportunity.

  • Bagging this. Missed it the first time round on PS2..

  • Can’t Wait! :D

  • Finally a solid release date.

  • cant wait.
    just got a 3Dtv and move so im ready to go.

  • I’m ashamed to admit that I’ve never played any of the Sly Cooper games! I’m really excited to pick this up for my pS3 and get in on the action.

  • Does anyone know if all three games are available once you start it up? I played the first two sly cooper games but never got to the third one, but now I’m interested.

  • I’ve never played them i might buy them now and play them!

  • I never had a PS2, so this series just slipped off my radar. But a raccoon thief protagonist with a witty repertoire…how can it not be AWESOME? I’ll be picking it up at some point soon. Looks like this might be one my kids will enjoy, too!

  • will we able to play all the games with the move controller? the stuff that arent the mini games that is, the main games.

    • Hi there,

      The original games are all very awesome and we didn’t want to try and shoehorn the Move into them so we just concentrated our efforts on upgrading the experience for the latest HDTV and 3D technology.


  • Already preordered! I never played these on the PS2. Now just give us the Jak and Daxter Collection.

  • sweet going to pre order this!! Day one buy!! Looking good!!

  • Can you play through the campaigns with Move? Will it be utilized somehow?

  • @30– No

  • YES can’t wait! own and got 100% on all 3 games by far my favorite series,picking this up day one.

  • 1 and 2 are awesome, 3 was very disappointing, IMO.

  • Great news, been looking forward to this release for months!

    It’s nice to see some texture re-authoring as shown in the video. Sly’s tail looked really awful in the older screenshots and videos.

    Was the music and voiceover audio re-authored from the original LPCM assets to take advantage of the space and transfer rates afforded by bluray and the PS3’s hard drive, or will we just be hearing the sub-MP3 quality from the original releases?

    When playing in 2D mode, does the resolution increase to 1080p? if not, why did you not at least use 2X MSAA to scale up from 720p and then down to 1080p like many games do these days?

    I’m really looking forward to the ICO and Prince of Persia collections as well, I hope they also do a good job of re-authoring textures and audio from the original lossless/HD assets.

  • I hope you can play the story modes with the move controller. However, I’ve never played any of the Sly games…. I think i had a demo disc for one of them back then though?

  • please give me gta collection pleeeeeease

  • I never got to play the first game, but I heard it was very good! I rented the other 2 games at least twice, but I didn’t get to beat #3 (I think I beat #2). I will absolutely get this collection! 3 Platinum trophies? I can’t pass that up!

  • That is a steal!

  • This and COD will be my last purchases of the year. I have to many games already but the Sly collection is a must. 3 great games for only $40 why would you pass this up.

  • all right!! now all we need is a Jak and Daxter collection and were good to go!! Im going to get this ASAP!! I never got the chance to play Sly on the PS2 and its only $39.99 for all of them on the PS3 so I win both ways!! Thank you for the collection, and if were lucky, and this sells well, Sucker Punch might make Sly 4 after inFamous 2!! and its avalable on the 9!! I thought it would be on the 16!! This jest keeps getting better and better!!

  • Looking forward to playing Sly Cooper… Never had a chance to play it on PS2 but wanted to buy it just never got round it. Now I have no excuse to play this colorfull platformer

    Also agree that a Jak & Daxter would be great… Last year I bought Precursor Legacy but haven’t finished it and would be willing to buy the collection

  • murray will rape you violently! lol now I can complete the original game since I never played it but sly 2 + 3 were spectacular.

  • No joke: My spine is TINGLING! Gonna get platinums on ALL of them! (Eventually!) @31: Really? Don’t think so. Online please!

  • Yes!Fianlly! It is actually going to come out in 1 week. I can’t wait.I have played the second game and I loved it so to be able to play it again and play the other two games is just awesome.

  • Is this going to have at least 120 trophies? Generally a game average 60…..

  • looking forward to it

  • Never played any Sly game, totally getting this :D

  • WHY!!!!???!!!!

    God of War Ghost of Sparta and Sly Cooper Collection soon after. I can’t decide. Wait is there any preorder bonus or some special edition? I can always get this later and get GoW first.

  • ditto 47’s comment.

  • @27, I love Jak & Daxter (1,2,3, and maybe X). All the other/newer ones are crap no one can make them like Naughty Dog, I hope when next Uncharted or whatever comes out they remaster Jak. I’d be thrilled as hell.
