    Stop me if you’ve heard this one: Ubisoft plans to release disc-based HD collections for Splinter Cell and Prince of Persia. The two sets, both of which are trilogies that fit on a lone Blu-ray disc and appear to be PS3-exclusive, will see releases later this year on March 22 for the delectable price of $39.99 each. Both of these collections have been heavily rumored for a while, thanks to various retailer listings.

    The Splinter Cell HD collection, properly titled "Splinter Cell Classic Trilogy HD," includes the first three Splinter Cell games: Splinter Cell, Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow, and Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory.  
     


     
    The Prince of Persia Collection, or the "Prince of Persia Classic Trilogy HD" as retailers will call it, will include these three titles: Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, Prince of Persia: Warrior Within, and Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones
     


     
    Interestingly, both sets have been remastered to include stereoscopic 3D visuals on top of HD resolutions. Ubisoft isn’t talking about what specifically has been added to the games in regards to 3D, so I’m guessing you won’t be too blown away by the visuals come this March.

    And speaking of release dates, both of these collections will see releases on PSN, too, as proper bundles at the same time as the retail PS3 releases. You can actually download the three Prince of Persia HD games now, though, as Ubisoft dropped those on the network earlier in 2010.

     I know Europe has the PoP collection as I'm looking at it, so I'm guessing the U.S had yet to be told when they would get them.

    The Prince of Persia Trilogy is already on the Playstation store. It's nice to have them on the hard drive.

    I wish they would say if the Splinter Cell games would have online. That for me will decide if I get them or not. Would love to play some spys vs mercs on Warehouse again.

    I wonder if Chaos Theory will be a port of the PC version or just the original Xbox version being rendered at a higher resolution.

    Splinter Cell Chaos Theory is an amazing game, so this is great for people who didn't get to play it originally.

    It's talking about disk-based. POP was released in a shitty way on PSN, though.

    I have all these on PC still. I see no need to get them again. It's cool that they're re-releasing them though.

    @TaliciaDragonsong: Why ashamed?  I like the idea of these collections because it gives people a chance to play through a series of games that they may have missed out on.  The fact that I can play all of the Sly Cooper games now is okay by me.  Not to mention that whenever that Shadow of the Coloussus/Ico pack gets releaseda lot of people will get to experience Ico for the first time which isn't a bad thing at all.

    Seeing as I only still own Warrior Within that PoP collection might be the thing to own. Meh, probably not.

    My theory is that Sony wants as much 3D content as possible on the PS3 (because Sony sells 3D TVs).  And normal PS3 games are compromised in 3D, either by a terrible frame rate or reduced graphics.  But with remastering old games (in some cases, PS 1 titles) they can make them look myuch better than they were and still get a decent frame rate in 3D.  So far we have: Sly Cooper, Oddworld, Prince of Persia, Splinter Cell, Shadow of the Colossus, and Ico.  So I will be shocked if there isn't a Spyro Pack announced soon.

    The only way I would potentially be interested in getting the Splinter Cell pack is if Chaos Theory comes with intact multiplayer. Other than that, I really REALLY hate these HD re-releases for games that appeared only a generation ago.

    QFT. I would buy the Splinter Cell one for Chaos Theory alone, but my PS3 is getting old and unusable for gaming, so I've bought a 360 so now all my gaming takes place there.

    I'll grant you the Ico thing, but lots of people already played both of these games, most of them are available for dirt cheap in the bins or on services like xbla or steam...
    Is a HD (HD my ass) remake really worth another 30 bucks?
     
    They're remaking every bloody thing it seems, same how everything became motion sensitive, or will be remade in 3D for the 3DS...its a gimmick, an overused one.

    Cool I played the first two Splinter Cell games but I didn't play Theory for some reason. I wonder why, hmm... Maybe I'll play it now.

    This is why I think Blu-Ray is amazing. They can pack all these features and things onto one disc. Probabaly the only reason why it's coming to the PS3 only. Easier and cheaper to shove everything onto 1 disc instead of printing 2. Then again who knows.

    My entire point being that there's way too many of these remakes.
    First everything's waggle controlled, then its HD remastered, then its 3D.
    How about some new things? New concepts and ideas? Really using the graphics, motion or 3D to its limit?

    I've played all the original Splinter Cell games so got really no desire to play those again. POP trilogy is something else. Although I got the PS2 trilogy pack already.

    I'm psyched for the Splinter Cell Trilogy. Trophies for re-playing those three Splinter Cell games with an HD kicked in is awesome.  
     
    I would imagine it has the extra Playstation 2 levels that the Xbox versions didn't get, so I'll finally get to play those.  
     
    I'm curious if the Co-op wil be in as well as Online multiplayer...

    I would gladly pay the $40 bucks for an HD remake of Chaos Theory. It's the best of the first three by far.

    While they may be old to you, they're new to millions of people out there that haven't played these games. All of which are defining games of the last generation and should be available to everyone to play.

    You're point is valid about a lot of stuff being overused or not implemented all that well, but you're also being a little hyperbolic over this whole thing.  These games are for people who, as @EVO said, didn't get to play them or want to play them on your current console.  It's not hurting anyone by putting these things out and calling this generation bland is sort of crazy when you consider the world's we've gotten to explore in games like Mass Effect and Red Dead Redemption.  Motion controls and 3D are in my periphery and I don't really consider them when I think of what this generation of consoles has given me.  I haven't had this much fun since the SNES days.

    I'll probably get the PoP ones.  I wonder how well the splinter cell games hold up.

    If they use the Conviction engine, I would CERTAINLY be excited to play the old Splinter Cell games again.

    couldn't care less about Splinter Cell but Prince of Persia interests me a little...may check it out eventually..finally.  only played first one a bit (which was cool) and then the cell-shaded one (which I didn't like.)
