What Does the Future Hold for HD Re-Releases on PS4?

The humble high-definition remaster proved a popular revenue stream for publishers on the PlayStation 3. Starting with the excellent God of War Collection, and spawning several retail compilations thereafter – including Tomb Raider, Metal Gear Solid, and more – the concept of refreshing previous generation favourites made plenty of sense for all of the parties involved. (PS4)

they only make sense if they are HD collections of games we want to revisit, which they have done good so far. My only concern is that a few of them are done poorly.

Well whats even better is not the HD remakes but perhaps the PC porting. They could port PC ports of say Borderlands 2 which would take them 2 months bringing great games like Crysis 3 and Borderlands 2 to next gen consoles early in its life cycle for next to no cash and making them look simply amazing with bigger maps for games like crysis and better graphics features.

Suikoden 1-5 HD re-release package containing all 5 games !

unless Konami finds some way to convince people to buy, maybe.

i heard its an rpg so they got a sale from me if that happens lol

This makes me curious about the games that haven't been remade in HD yet. FF7-9, and FF12, KH2. Will they be remade for the PS3, or next gen? If its next gen, that means we will have our HD collection of older games spread between tow different consoles. Will they port the PS3 HD collections onto the PS4?

its a good point the article makes imo....but...I dont think they will die.....why you ask......the vita I say.
it would be a bold but imo great move to make hd remakes vita exclusive when tge ps4 becomes main only concern is the quality of these remakes....the jak and dax was a bad port....I love it because its jak and dax and you kind of get used to it but it deserved a better effort.....while remakes like ffx look to be great and im sure will be the port that shows how hd remakes should be done, time will tell if other devs follow suit.

HD re releases would make more sense on the Vita, not the PS4.

How can you do HD re-releases of PS3 games on a handheld that is weaker than the PS3?
XboxFun  +   930d ago
HD-collections, one of the biggest rip off this gen has seen.
fattyuk  +   930d ago
Probalay because the Xbox hasn't got any games that warrant a HD remake... unlike sonys first party games they do warrant it + Sony have the advantage of HD remakes for the vita.

Still need me some GTA HD'ness which is sure to happen one day as they spruced up the titles for tankers.
XboxFun  +   930d ago
Yes you are correct, Sony is more inclined to re-re-release games multiple times with minor graphic updates for people to purchase. They'll probably re-release them for gaikai also. Of course only if you have the PS+ membership.

I do agree with Master-H below...a Tenchu collection would be boss. I might consider getting that.
Williamson  +   930d ago
Not If people like me didnt get around to playing the games on the ps2. I never played gow 1&2, sly1-3, jak1-3, and ico then but I picked up the collections and got a lot value from those games.

So I'm guessing you're mad because they barely released any worthy titles from the original Xbox to remaster in HD aside from Halo 1 and Fable when it comes out.
XboxFun  +   930d ago
Yes, so mad, ARRRGH! Very Angry! ARRRGHH! HULK SHMASH!

Wait... no I'm not...why would I be mad at that? HD re-masters from both sides are a rip off, why would I accept one and slam the other you silly.

Sorry if I took the wind out of your comment by not being a fanboy.

I want Tenchu HD collection for ps3 now !! with the ps1 games , the ps2 games, the 360 game , and maybe even the wii game, NOWW !!
NarooN  +   930d ago
A new Tenchu is long overdue. I'd take a new game, but it'd be awesome to have new versions of Tenchu 1 & 2 without the draw distance fog.
Summons75  +   930d ago
You sir are my new best friend. I loved tenchu on the ps1 the 360 game not so much but I would love to revisit those games again.
starchild  +   929d ago
I have to agree. I would love to see a collection of updated Tenchu games. Ah how I love that series.

At least I can play the PS1 and PS2 games at a higher quality on my PC.
fattyuk  +   930d ago
I'm all up HD rereleases if there done well and warrant the upgrade!

this gen has done well IMO for my needs on ps3/vita.
USMC_POLICE  +   930d ago
Still waiting for socom and granturismo HD releases
avengers1978  +   930d ago
I think hd remakes will still come out on PS3, and then you will be able to stream through gaiki on PS4
vazurahan  +   930d ago
PS3 Games are already in HD. Although not FULL HD.

What should they call the PS4 releases then?

Uncharted HD Collection wouldn't work.
PositiveEmotions  +   930d ago
Hopefullly cc2 brings their naruto games into a ps4 hd collection

pyramidshead  +   930d ago
If they're going to continue please for the love of god get Bluepoint to do them ALL. At least they know exactly what they're doing when porting it to HD like qualities.
yami930  +   930d ago
I would love to see some PS3 games jump to PS4 in some sort of enchanced collection. Killzone, Uncharted, Infamous, are just a few examples of games that can be real beautiful, with full 1080p, full smooth 60 fps, more anti-aliasing, uncompressed textures, audio, and models, better draw distance, better lighting, new / improved effects, faster / no load times, better AI and more. Also, the games will be able to make use of the new PS4 controller and its new features and hardware improvements as well as the new PS4 hardware features like the share button functions. There is a lot they can do with re-releasing some of the best PS3 games over to the PS4.

"With a vast majority of the most-wanted titles from the PS2 era already available on Sony’s flagship format – the upcoming Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster and Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX are likely to represent the last of their kind"

Highly doubtful. I'd bet we'll be seeing FF XII HD, and KH 2.5 Remix.
dcj0524  +   930d ago
So.....HD-HD remake? 1080 REMAKE!

I don't think we'll get HD collections on PS4. 1080p is good enough and PS3 can do that. It would not be a huge jump in quality if a remastered PS2 game was released in PS4 instead of PS3.
