124w ago - Today Sony's Associate Product Marketing Manager Brian Dunn has detailed the bonus content coming to ICO and Shadow of the Colossus Collection for the PS3 entertainment system.
To quote: We're just a few short months away from the release of the ICO & Shadow of the Colossus Collection for PlayStation 3.
As mentioned in the original announcement, this new collection features two of the most highly acclaimed video games of all time, now with full 1080p HD and stereoscopic 3D support, 7.1 surround sound, and full PSN Trophy support, all for just $39.99.
As if that wasn't enough reason to pick up this collection in September, I'm happy to announce that the disc will also come with some amazing bonus content. Packed in every new copy of the game will be a voucher for two XMB Dynamic Themes, one for ICO and one for Shadow of the Colossus.
In addition, on the disc itself will be a ton of exclusive video content from ICO, Shadow of the Colossus, and The Last Guardian that fans won't want to miss. We're busy finalizing the videos as we speak, and will have more details to share next month.
Don't forget to pre-order your copy before it hits stores on September 27!

You'll notice Team Objective and Co-op Hunter as new additions for this week. I've been liking the Co-op Hunter gametype lately - the twist of adding in human players into what seems to be a Co-op mode is quite intriguing.
You can catch some clips of Co-op Hunter in action in the video below:
Along with the update to the available gametypes, we've updated the video playlist for UNCHARTED TV to add...

To quote: Have you ever put on a wedding or a huge party? A bunch of us are in working this weekend, but it's not just the normal bug fixing, polishing, and optimizing.
Today we're hanging art, arranging some furniture, and (shudder) cleaning up our offices. All of this is being done in preparation for the 60+ media members who will be flying up to Seattle on Monday for our "Media Day" event for inFAMOUS 2.
So you can think of this as our once-every-two-years chance to spruce up the place, and put on a little bit of a show.
So here's my Virtual Media Day for you guys, a blow-by-blow breakdown of what we're showing.
In the morning we'll be hosting all the international press members on a tour of our studios in Bellevue. We will hold out some hope for good weather so we can do some interviews and photos out on the deck.
We'll turn the visitors loose on the bustling metropolis that is Bellevue, Washington and start prepping for our afternoon show. South of the Mariners stadium, we'll be hosting an evening event...
