DMC 1 - 3, All In 1?

A friend of mine keeps mentioning a new HD collection of Devil May Cry 1, 2 & 3.

All I can find are a few rumours that it was going to be announced at E3. Now E3 has come & gone, and there're no new news.

Does anyone know anything about this?

Hmmm, If so, i'm buying day 1! But i don't think there is a collection :S

Would be great if it came out, but I haven't heard anything.

Are the first three better than the fourth one? Because 4 was a pretty terrible game.

I think a lot of people really liked both the 1st and 3rd and I recall reviews being very positive. I've only played the first myself though.

I played 1, and I honestly couldn't stand it. I don't think it was bad, it was, just... Well, the DMC games are made in a such a messed up chronological order that I wanted to experience the story in that order. Big mistake. Why? Because Devil May Cry 3 was the best DMC game ever made. No comparison.
 
So when I beat that and moved onto the much more puzzle oriented DMC1, I was disappointed. And of course, DMC2 was a critical failure with the fans.

I loved first and second. I'm probably in the minority on DmC2 though. Hard as hell. But i loved it. Never played 3. Skipped to 4:)

@Vortexus1981: As a fan of the series, you owe it to yourself to finish the 3rd one. It is honestly quite ridiculous to see how much better DMC3 is. Everything was great: The story, the gameplay, the characters, the bosses. Everything.

Ahhh. guess i should then. I know that DmC2 was ported wrong(normal as hard) but i honestly loved dmc2. But then again as you say, i'll be looking in the bargin bins then :) cheers for the tip :)

Sorry to hear that, I really enjoy 4. But I was late to the DMC party... so going back to play the others on the old PS2 felt slugging & unresponsive, which is why I'm hoping that this rumour is based on fact.

All I've managed to find are a few rumours here & there. Apparently a Spanish site has a release date in December 2011, but if that was the case then where's ll the press releases & promo material? :(

1 was good for its time but the only 2 I would play is 3 and 4.

I have wanted this for a long time.  You broke my heart, I thought there was going to be a news story with evidence that one existed ;(

The first three are all good games. The first set new trends and holds up relatively well, the second has a batshit crazy storyline, and the third is just the best gameplay wise.  
 
Four however? That shit sucks, so I'm hoping that they release this collection even though they've already released a collection similar to this on the PS2.

That would be pretty cool, I guess. I haven't played any of the series.

It showed up on a Spanish website a while ago
I believe that is where the rumor started since has since been pulled from the site, the rumors about an announcement at E3 is pure speculation I believe it was destructoid that started that and they are very unreliable on things like this. I think it makes perfect sense as it will be just in time to get people more excited for the reboot. I definitely would get it day one, DMC 3 is one of my favorite games of all time. Also I believe they took a question from the chat about it on the capcom unity stream for DMC and they sort of indicated that it may be coming. My only worry is that it doesn't also come out on Xbox 360 as then I couldn't play it...

I've played all 4 DMC game(Or 5, counting DMC 2:Lucia Version!), and I had a hard time back then playing DMC games(I was only a kid back then!), So I would love an HD Collection!(Pls. put DMC 3 Special Edition though! I never got the chance to play Vergil :()
