Sony plans to release further HD remakes of PS2 games for PS3, Shuhei Yoshida, president of SCE's Worldwide Studios, has confirmed.

Speaking to IGN at E3 earlier this month Yoshida said: "Santa Monica Studios had the brilliant idea to upgrade and improve God of War for PS3 with the God of War Collection that we released last year.

"There were a lot of positive reactions from consumers in doing that, and now we get a lot of suggestions for types of packs they'd like to see."

He added: "So we are looking to continue to do these HD conversions."

At E3 Sony announced The Sly Collection, which updates all three PS2 Sly Cooper games to high definition in one Blu-ray package. The set is scheduled for release in November. Missing from E3 was the heavily rumoured Ico and Shadow of the Colossus HD remake, with the Tokyo Game Show now the likely venue for such an announcement.
