Yesterday morning we reported that the ESRB had updated its listing for SCE shooter Killzone, adding the PlayStation 3 as an applicable platform. It didn’t take long for Sony to confirm that the game was indeed making its way to the PlayStation Network. Unlike previous PS2 ports however, it will not be receiving an HD makeover, launching on January 24th at a very reasonable $9.99.
Another ESRB listing spotted this morning also states that Hitman: Blood Money, the fourth game in the Eidos franchise, will be making its way to the PlayStation 3.
Given that the previous games in the series haven’t received an update, it’s likely that Blood Money will launch as a singular title under the PlayStation Network’s “PS2 Classics” banner, with no visual upgrade, 3D integration or trophy support. Though some will welcome the addition others will likely read this in a negative light, reducing the chances of Eidos releasing a Hitman HD Collection.
