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.

We've also got some really cool tech that seamlessly blends between the animations and the game (as you can see in the video).





This really makes the solo experience smooth and buttery. We didn't want any experiential speed bumps in the solo campaign. You can sit down, start the game and smoothly flow from mission to mission with no loading screens!

So, yeah, we're having our Starhawk panel at Comic-Con on Sunday July 24th, 10am - 11am in room...
