ICO and Shadow of the Colossus HD Promo Trailers

At E3 last month, Sony finally gave us a firm release date for the ICO & Shadow of the Colossus Collection. The two all-time video game classics are coming together for one incredible PS3 bundle on September 27th, sporting remastered 1080p HD graphics, stereoscopic 3D, surround sound and trophies on a single Blu-ray. But that’s old news. These new promo trailers, however, are not.

Is it just me, or do these HD-upscaled PS2 games look better than 75% of the games built for modern hardware? Just goes to show that great art direction trumps technical horsepower every time.
