Jak PS2 Collection Heading to PS4 as “PS2 on PS4 Classics” this December

What’s Up PlayStation Nation!

As you may have previously read we recently reported on a deal  Jak and Daxter being on sale via CDkeys.net for a whopping 3 bucks. Now as reported via the PS Blog. In efforts to complete the circle completely: Jak II, Jak III and Jak Racing is new heading to PS4 as a PS2 on PS4 classic. You will have the option to purchase these title as a bundle or individually.  Check out the trailer below and find out what the Bryan Pardilla of SIEA had to say:

Jak 3 on PS4

Jak II on PS4Jak X Combat Racing on PS4

On October 14, 2003, Naughty Dog released Jak II for the PlayStation 2 system, and something amazing happened for the Jak and Daxter franchise: Jak was able to speak for the first time, enabling players to hear and experience Jak’s own point of view using his voice, instead of relying solely on Daxter’s witty banter and exposition. This was the start of something special, and the franchise continued to reach new heights with the release of Jak 3 and Jak X, in part because of this one simple addition.

Jak II on PS4

By giving Jak a voice, it allowed Naughty Dog to explore new narrative techniques that allowed them to create a grittier world with a much more developed and evolved storyline. Jak and Daxter evolved from whimsical lighthearted platforming characters to a much darker vision of a future’s past world where Jak and Daxter find themselves pitted against multiple dark forces moving against them.

Jak II on PS4

The narrative tropes Naughty Dog explored in Jak and Daxter laid the foundation for the evolution of their highly innovative story telling. It put them on the path that led to the creation of future blockbuster franchises like Uncharted and The Last of Us— and to think it all started with giving Jak his own voice.

Jak 3 on PS4

In celebration of Naughty Dog’s rich heritage, it is with great pleasure that we present to you these Jak & Daxter classics on the PS4.

Wait, there’s more! To help make experiencing these games even more nostalgic, please check out the Legacy Dashboard Theme ($2.99) on the PlayStation Store, also available on December 6.

Legacy Dashboard Theme

(Editors Opinion: I’m very stoked to play these games although a bit frustration due to bad camera restraints of the First Jak and Daxter. I am looking forward to probably adding these titles to the list of games completed for my inner trophy whore. However I must admit since prior to the recent PS2 on PS4 release, I hadn’t played the Jak Series until recently. But since playing these titles I am definitely looking forward to experiencing this classic again. However a part of me wishes that it was a full fledged remake on par with the Ratchet and Clank re-imagining.)

But enough of what we think. What do you think of this news are you interested in replaying these if you have played these before? Are you interested or uninterested in the Jak series. Comment below let us know. For news like this and more make sure to keep us bookmarked and as always be sure to check back with us here at What’s Up PlayStation.
