Ico, Shadow of the Colossus coming to PlayStation Network next week

On this week’s edition of the PlayStation Blogcast, Sony revealed that Ico and Shadow of the Colossus are set to be released next Tuesday on PlayStation Network.

Both titles are already available at retail by way of the “Ico and Shadow of the Colossus Collection“, which goes for $40. Sony priced the digital releases of the two games at $20 a pop.

In related PlayStation Network news, Sony revealed that Crysis 2 will be made available for download on the PlayStation Network for $40, as well as Rainbow Six Vegas and Splinter Cell: Double Agent at $20 apiece.

If you haven’t experienced either Ico or Shadow of the Colossus already, shame on you! Both Ico and Shadow of the Colossus are widely considered to be two of the best games of all time, if for nothing else but their stunning, heartstrings-tugging atmosphere and narrative, so you owe it to yourself as a gamer to at least give it a go, and a digital release sounds like a good option if you aren’t willing to throw down $40 for the retail bundle.
