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?

Thank God! It may finally be here!
Awesome, I like it! But where's the Ratchet and Clank HD collection?
I want these games in HD so bad I can't stand it. If this is true it will make my year.
i'm waiting for a remake of the ratchet and clanks
i would replay all of them
I don't see why it wouldn't come out, HD collections are great! I'm enjoying SotC & Ico right now and they are great as ever...
Now if they could get to announce Jak4...
C'mon. Can you really expect the company to comment on Every rumor out there?
One of the BEST looking games on the PS2! And the funnest! I expect to spend another 30 hours collecting power cells. :p ugh...
I would absolutely buy that collection, Jak and Daxter was one of my favorite games of the PS2 era!
I would love to see more HD collections from major developers. If you think about it, there hasn't been a bad one yet. Hell, the HD collections are getting better reviews then the modern titles. What does that tell you?
If this is true, that would be awesome!
Oh, I hope this happens! I would love it to include the Lost Frontier, too!
After this, I would love to see a Ratchet and Clank collection. I'm honestly surprised that hasn't been announced yet, seeing as how R&C are "big deals" for Sony.
COME TO DA XBOX SON
I made an account just to say YES!!!
favorite ps2 series
I'd buy it. Jak and Daxter was one of the best games on my PS2
That would be awesome. These HD collections really hook me in. Even though I already have all the games, having them on one disc with upgraded graphics would be worth it.
