Day before Jak and Daxter Collection release

The Jak and Daxter Collection is coming out tomorrow, February 7th on the PS3 yet fans in the UK will have to wait until February 24, 2012. We thought it would be a good idea to let you in on some Jak and Daxter Collection news prior to its release.

For $39.99 or currency equivalent, a HD collection presenting the first three games will be available for fans to enjoy. Jak & Daxter: The Precursor Legacy, Jak 2 and 3 are mentioned in an article on PlayStation Lifestyle with information about the collection going digital on the PSN at the same price as the retail edition. This rarely happens simultaneously and the individual games will be accessible for $14.99 each, although this has been done before in the case of Ico and Shadow of The Colossus and the Sly Collection. Featuring 3D support, HD graphics, and trophies, this opportunity is a great way to give users extra options.

Fans hoping that Naughty Dog is thinking of doing a reboot version of Jak and Daxter on the PlayStation 3 will have to wait. VGArabia writes about the Co-president Evan Wells who has given it some thought due to fans asking for a future reboot and decided the time is not right at the moment. They have looked into adapting the same skills used in the Uncharted series as this could give the Jak and Daxter games some justice although using the evolution of game development it would be hard to remain along the same familiar lines of previous games. The idea is still there and only time will tell but currently there is nothing in the pipeline.

Trendy Gamers want to know whether there will be a J and D 4 trailer in the new Jak and Daxter HD Collection, as no real sequels have been made to follow on from Jak 3. Maybe it could in a teaser version like Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time did, the trouble is the amount of work they have producing The Last of Us and maybe another Uncharted could have them look towards other developers. The odds that we will see a trailer are quite high from Trendy Gamers perspective and hopefully once the hardcore fans get the chance to complete every platinum we might get the opportunity to find out if there really is a new Jak and Daxter title?

Watch below to see a trailer of the Jak and Daxter Collection. Which version of J and D games are you interested in obtaining? Are you hoping to see a new version of Jak and Daxter?
