[Register or Login to view links] reports that unlike last year's Special Edition of the first game that never saw the light of day on the PlayStation 3, this year's will make it to PlayStation Network alongside PC, XBox 360 and iPhone versions.
To quote: "We've heard from sources that the game is due to be announced very soon, perhaps even next week at the Game Developer's Conference, and that like the first game's special edition, will contain all-new graphics and audio.
Unlike the first game, however, this one will be reaching a few more consumers, with versions planned for not just the Xbox 360, PC ad iPhone (like Monkey Island), but the PlayStation Network as well."
This is great news, but I do hope they also release part 1 too first, as you really need to have played the 1st one to understand a lot of stuff that happens in the second.. They have the engine running now, so how hard can it be? we can even play the old games using ScummVM in OtherOS, and that's without full hardware access.
