In the video game category, there is this blurb:

"ICO and Shadow of the Colossus sold poorly on the PS2, and are some of the rarest games on the console. But then in Fall 2011, Sony released a compilation pack for the PS3 containing both games on one disc, with loads of bonus features, and the UK release of ICO instead of the American release (which had easier and altered puzzles than the UK/JPN versions). This pleased both those who had played the games before, and those who never got to play them due to their rarity."

Shadow of the Colossus isn't rare, let alone one of the rarest games on the console. It received a Greatest Hits re-release for Christ's sake! Ico is uncommon for sure, but one of the rarest games on the console? Not even close. Would anyone have a problem if I re-worded it as such?

ICO sold poorly on the PS2, though it was much loved by its fandom who were constantly singing its praises and had high critical note, making its used copies sell for a high price. Its successor, Shadow of the Colossus sold far better, even making it into the Greatest Hits line and maintained a high critical evaluation. This brought more interest into ICO, which still remained out of print. But then in Fall 2011, Sony released a compilation pack for the PS3 containing both games on one disc, with loads of bonus features, and the UK release of ICO instead of the American release (which had easier and altered puzzles than the UK/JPN versions). This pleased both those who had played the games before, and those who never got to play them due to their rarity.

I'm a brony and all, but I think we need to cut the Fi M example, the shows only 2 years old.

Good catch. Pulled, and watchlisting a couple pages in hopes it isn't added back.
