The lights are on
Naughty Dog has been getting a lot of attention for its excellent Uncharted series on the PlayStation 3, but that's just one of the franchises that it's created over the years. In addition to Crash Bandicoot, Naughty Dog developed the Jak and Daxter series on the PlayStation 2. The series is celebrating its 10-year anniversary in a few months (December 4, if you want to get all technical about it), leaving fans wondering how the event will be celebrated. If a recent listing on a South African game retailer's website is to be believed (and that's a big "if"), a PS3 collection of HD remakes could be just around the corner.
Retailer BT Games has a listing for The Jak and Daxter HD Collection, with an estimated January 20, 2012, release date.
Gematsu.com, the site that discovered the listing, says that a source hinted that such a collection was in the works back in May. Judging from Sony's enthusiasm for rereleasing older games from its vault, stranger things have certainly happened.
Before we get too carried away, keep in mind that retailers use placeholder items all the time. We've contacted Sony about the collection, and we'll report back if we hear anything other than "We don't comment on rumors or speculation."
In the meantime, can we all agree than such a collection, if real, would look really nice on our shelves?

I would definitely pick this up I loved Jak and Daxter.
Since I live in South Africa I use BT Games a lot and I saw this a while back and didnt even think about...
OMG my heart skipped a beat. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE this!!!!
One of the few series I never got to on PS2. *Kneels* Please. Make it happen.
If this is real, and I hope it is, then what I said about the new Bloody Roar is official: hell has truly frozen over.
I already have the three on PS2 and still play them on my 60gb PS3 but hell yeah I'll take this too.
i would love to see this happen as Jak and Daxter was literally my go to franchise on the PS2. i miss them! they need a new game! make it happen!
I have heard of Jak and Dexter but I have never played the game. it looks good i think i am gana get the game
i love it.
I've been with this series since it launched back in 2001, but I didn't beat any of them until last year. If this is real though, I'd pick it up on day 1. Make it happen, people!
