The Last Guardian/Team ICO Collection Pushed Back

Sometimes you wake up to news so disappointing you just want to kick a squirrel.

Today is such a day, with the confirmation that The Last Guardian and the HD re-release of ICO and Shadow of the Colossus have been pushed back, possibly until 2012.


“SCEE can confirm that we are officially delaying the release of ICO/Shadow of the Colossus Collection and The Last Guardian from their respective launch timeframes of Spring 2011 and Holiday/Winter 2011,” says the EU Blog. “We will provide more information regarding release timing at a later date.”

The re-releases were due to land sometime in spring, with The Last Guardian pencilled in for “holiday 2011”.

“I sincerely apologize to all the customers who have been waiting for The Last Guardian for so long, but I beg for your patience,” said Fumito Ueda. “I will also announce the new release timing at a later time.”

The Last Guardian’s delay makes sense in all honesty as it would be competing with titles such as Uncharted 3, Skyrim, Mass Effect 3, and that’s a lot of quality titles shoved into the back end of this year.



  1. WTF! :-(

  2. 2012!? I don’t mind a delay here and there but that’s quite a while. Oh well, It’s not like there’s nothing else to play.

  3. Lol

  4. Sad!

  5. When did PSLS first leak this? May 2009? Wow, I hope it’s good after all this.

  6. shame, I still haven’t played either and was really looking forward to this

  7. I would’ve bought it over those games, why not stand up and fight these evilily over-hyped games. Since I’m sure they’re be disappoinments

  8. “Sometimes you wake up to news so disappointing you just want to kick a squirrel.” lol :)

    • I laughed for too long at that comment. :)

  9. who cares, there’s plenty of PS3 games and HD rereleases to get through before the ICO/SOTC comes out….
    I recently picked up Tomb Raider HD Trilogy & Prince Of Persia HD Trilogy for less than £25, good value and it’ll last a while too!

    • I do… ?

    • I care as i didn’t get a chance to play the originals and have become interested in them. everyone have said some good things about them.

  10. The reason I bought a PS3 was for The Last Guardian, this is actually quite upsetting for me. I have the trailers saved on my PS3 and I watch them once a week. Obsessed much?

    • Hehe I do exactly the same for Deus Ex.

      • I watch that Deus Ex TGS trailer almost daily :)
