[With the weekend near and video games in high demand, the Naughty Boy team gives you their top five reasons to get cozy on your Playstation 3 with the new Jak & Daxter Collection title.]

1. High Def Three for One

The Jak and Daxter Collection features three huge action platformers - Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy, Jak II, Jak 3 - from the height of the PS2 era re-mastered in stunning 720p HD. We were super proud we were able to make these games run without loading screens back in the early 2000s. We're even more impressed by the work Mass Media did to make sure these huge worlds load seamlessly when rendered in full 720p HD.

2. Three D! Three D!

The re-mastering didn't stop at full 720p resolution. Careful attention was paid to making sure each game stood out in full stereoscopic 3D. If you're a 3D TV owner be sure to grab some glasses and give it a whirl. It'll suck you in even more deeply and gives the platforming elements added depth.

3. Pedal to the Metal

The Jak and Daxter Collection offers a series first for each of the three games. The player will be able to unlock trophies related to each game by accomplishing in-game tasks and achievements. Destroy Metal Kor at Nest? Unlock the "Pedal to the Metal" trophy. Collect 2000 Precursor Orbs? You've just unlocked "The Super Orberator" trophy which is a seriously impressive trophy to nab. In total there are over 100 trophies to unlock including three Platinum trophies so you'll have hours of trophy-hunting fun in store for you.

4. More Eco

The Jak and Daxter series took platforming games and gave them a story. As you play through the three games there's connective tissue and themes that run across every game. One of the main links is Eco. There are 6 different types of Eco that appear throughout the series and each has different powers, granting special abilities when discovered. You'll have to master collecting eco as frequently as possible in order to thrive.

5. Quality Pedigree

Each title in the Jak and Daxter Collection has received much critical acclaim. There's not a weak bit of fun to be had when you spend time playing this trio of games. Whether you're nostalgic or new to the world of Jak and Daxter, you're getting three beloved and classic action adventures in one sweet package for a great price. Bottom line is the demolition duo delivers.
