Tomb Raider HD Trilogy Hitting PS3 This March

How about a prettier way to catch up on your Tomb Raider?

Just in case you haven’t been following the hottest video game-related gossip, I’ll start with this: Crystal Dynamics is re-releasing Tomb Raider Legend, Anniversary, and Underworld in a pack called “The Tomb Raider Trilogy.” As you’d suspect, the set will feature HD versions of all these titles.

Publisher Square Enix has confirmed that this latest HD trilogy set is a PS3 exclusive and also announced that it will contain a few bonuses. To be specific, it’ll ship with an “exclusive static theme pack,” some behind-the-scenes trailers, and a Lara Croft and a Viking Thrall PlayStation Home avatar.  

This wallpaper (and three Tomb Raider games) could be yours for just $39.99!     
And, hey, Square also confirmed a release date and a price: the pack will debut on March 22 for $39.99--a steal, I suppose, if you’re a Tomb Raider fan with a desire to see why Crystal Dynamics is rebooting the series with Tomb Raider later on in 2011.

" So are these basically just ports of the 360 versions of Legend & Anniversary and the PS3 version of Underworld, bundled into one package on PS3? "
My thoughts exactly.  I'm not sure what the deal is here...

" How is this an HD re-release when all of those games have already been released on HD consoles ? "
Right? This is sorta baffling.

@SlashDance:  games can be on HD consoles without being in HD.  they have to remaster the graphics in HD for an HD remake.

@detectivepbert: If you have any hope that they will redo anything, I think you're in for a disappointment.
