2013 was the year of hd remakes with the vita. imo
this isnt something i like on my new console but better than nothing i guess.
also imo. the reason i was attracted to the vita/ps3 remakes was the games that were remade didnt have trophies before. they were added in the remakes giving me a reason to relplay.
id rather see more games or even sequels but remakes are a lazy way to make money.

I've already got platinum 6 times on it. I guess I'm just being greedy.

The funny part is that you called it HD, implying that PS3 runs it at 480p. lol

Grave1483d ago

Heh, that wasn't my intention. Whoops.

I really, really hope not!

I was sick of HD remakes by the beginning of 2012!

What about "Remasters" I get that HD Remakes are a big cash grab..But I'm liking Microsofts First party studios approach to remakes...Re building the way the game looks from the ground up actually takes time and it helps give you that nostalgia feel but with an actual skin that makes it look cool and current.
I don't usually buy HD Remakes but I can't pass up Fable Anniversary.

TekoIie1483d ago

Fable and Halo Anniversary are how you do it right. Just upgrading the resolution is nothing amazing now to be honest :/

TheDivine1483d ago

MS and Nintendo do it right. Sony just churns the same game out with a better resolution. Kind of a waste although I do like having multiple games in one collection. MGS and Ico were great collections.

Still compared to Halo CE, Fable, Wind Waker, Star Fox 64, and Zelda OOT Sony went the cash grab route.

boldscot1483d ago

Can't we have some HD remakes of games people actually want, like Resident Evil 2 and Final Fantasy VII?

ColeMacGrath1483d ago

Legend of Dragoon, MediEvil, Dino Crisis, and Crash Bandicoot :(

Bob Dole1483d ago

Parasite Eve, Megaman Legends, Chrono Cross...
