Anyone go out and buy ICO because of this?

I was able to find a copy for $20 and snatched it. Loving it so far, can't believe I missed this the first time around :(

Where did you find one for $20? Jealous! I've been looking into picking it up or GameFly-ing it but it's "Very Low" availability on GameFly and an expensive used game. Any suggestions for places to look?

I've managed to keep my copy of both ICO and Shadow of the Colossus over the years. I usually sell these games when the price for them gets ridiculous. I don't know, for some reason I can't part with these two. They're pure genius. Enjoying the E3 coverage, but this announcement just stole the show for me.

I still have both Ico and SoTC, remarkably.

I was able to find a mint condition copy of Ico at my local gamestop towards the beginning of the year for around 20USD.  Mint condition.  I mean, the only thing wrong with it was the annoying sticker I had to pull off, but this thing is pure beauty, both inside and out ;)

People should play Ico regardless of this. :)

I'm guessing this Trico game is The Last Guardian, right? Well, nope, can't say I have. I actually tried going out and buying Ico for Christmas a few years ago. I think this was shortly before Shadow of the Colossus, but maybe it was after. Either way, I had no luck in getting it even online.

So I'm not the only one who is doing this. I've ordered Ico and God of War in preperation for each of their third installments. I'll be buying Shadow of Colossus and God of War 2 once I'm done with the first two, if I enjoy them that is.


Edit: Apparently I lie, I have ordered God of War 1 and 2 I believe. Plan to get Ico and SoC at some point, if I can find them cheap enough again.

I started playing ICO again for the 10th time and still love it as much as the first........Shadow of the Colossus is my favorite PS2 game of all and I will be playing it next after I finish with ICO. I loved watching the trailer for The Last Guardian so much that I could feel the emotion from all the past games and felt it was time to relive those great experiences.

Meh, I never liked Ico.  The whole damn game is an escort mission.  Good you're enjoying it though.

Ico was a great game, but SoTC fell under my expectations (I think it was just too overhyped in my opinion). Overall though, SoTC was an ok game though. As for buying a game in anticipation, I ran out and got Chains of Olympus after seeing the GOWIII trailer (already own 1&2)

I actually went and picked up ICO and SoTC a few months back, both really amazing games, haven't beaten either of them but I'm about half way through ICO and 3/4 the way through in SoTC, SoTC is probably my fav.
