PS3 Okami HD

192 posts in this topic

Curiously enough I have both the Wii and the PS2 versions of this, that I never actually got around to playing. I think the run time and the fact there has always been something newer and shinier to play has left them there (I bought the Wii version because I still wanted to play it but my PS2 went kaput and I have the PAL version of the game and my PS3 is NTSC)

And even more curiously I am tempted by this even though it would probably suffer the same fate.

Still a Vita version and I'd be there day one - I just know its a game that I'd love if I can every give it the time it deserves...

A disc is a disc, it would work with PCSX2 on your laptop if your laptop can read discs, but surely you can rip that disc and play it from your HDD instead because then it performs about a million times better in PCSX2? The basic idea is (and I do wonder why I have to spell it out to a developer :lol: ) that you bought and paid for that game, that you choose to play it on PCSX2 in glorious HD with all kinds of fancy AA instead of on your PS2 in low-res doesn't matter...

As a developer I just do written stuff (story, etc), so the rest I leave to my more tech-savvy colleagues :rolleyes: From living in a foreign country, I keep running into different systems for the same things (plugs, DVDs, consoles, etc), hence my doubt about whether a Chinese laptop would even work for this.

Anyway, yes, HD PS2 games does sound quite appealing, hmm...

Maybe I should have used ;) instead of :lol: - it wasn't meant as an insult. IIRC you can simply use something like imageburn to make an .iso of the game and save that on your HDD somewhere and point the PS2 emu towards it.

I disagree, visually it looks quite similar to the Wii port, it doesn't have that washed-out look of the PS2 version.

It looks more like the second shot than the first, no? Suppose you can pretty much get around that by turning down the contrast on your tv though.

Well, unless they've been using PS2 images for the announcement screenshots I think it looks pretty much like the PS2 version if you find an outside shot. Certainly looks better than the Wii one.

He missed the point I was making anyway. The video has the rice paper filter, the Wii version didn't because they couldn't replicate the effect on the hardware, therefore they must be using PS2 code or a mash of both.

No worries, I didn't take it as such ;) My apologies in return if I came off as overly defensive. Thanks for the info, definitely something to try for when work calms down and I have more time for actual gaming :lol:

This will be awesome.

Looking forward to all the little touches again, like every fifth or sixth lilly pad you create has a wee frog on it which hops off and swims away.

For those who like a nice box and have a fair chunk of sterling lying about, Capcom are releasing a collector's edition for the home market, will set you back about 10,600 JPY (£85) before delivery and maybe customs:

  • PS3 Game: "Okami Zekkeiban"
  • Issun Fluorescent Strap
  • Okami Cherry Blossom Globe

Daft question - I'm assuming move is optional?

This will be the 3rd time I've bought this... But I reckon it'll be the best version and I might end up finishing it.

Given that RE 4 never got a boxed release, it's safe to assume that Okami will be digital only here.

Hnngh.

Maybe they'll get around to a Capcom PS2 HD classics collection when they've got enough standalone games to make it feasible, Ubisoft are releasing 3 of their standalone digital releases for the X360 on a single disc and the thatgamecompany Sony PS3 trilogy of titles is about to get a physical disc release too.

Japan get all the cool stuff...

I wanted the Chibiterasu plush that came with Okamiden, and now I want that snow globe.

All the talk of Okami HD made me start the original PS2 version again on Sunday. Dear god it's a lovely. Now, do I keep playing through it in SD or wait?

I tried 1080p'ing Okami on pcsx2 inspired by this thread, but it's one of the few games I can't get running, so I HD'd Persona 4 up instead.

I'd wait as well. More beautification and there might be some fun trophies to hunt for.

Certainly sounds like they're putting in the effort, which is great, as few games deserve it more.

Well I have an unfinished save that I've ploughed about 50 hours into over the years. No way am I starting from scratch!

The PS2 version's amazing. The only way I'd consider abandoning my saved game's that snow-globe for the English version.

I've ploughed 20 hours into my replay so far, and it's as lovely as it ever was, but I'm still going to be buying that HD version on day 1. :)

A proper Clover HD Collection would make me so hard.
