Guerrilla Games Senior Online Producer is holding an AMA on Reddit at the moment, and he dropped some quite interesting pieces of information.
Killzone Collection for PS4 confirmed, and unknown remake as well! @Everybody This is my guess not the actual annoucement.
Uh, that's not really what he said.
And I hope it stays that way. Even though I bought the last 3 Killzone games on Day1 I really hope that there won't be any HD remasters for these games ...they're simply not good enough to justify spending resources on them.
I just think it will be an announcement that they will be playable via PSNow.
Isn't it too soon to remaster killzone shadowfall? Man time flies, it feels like it just came out 6 months ago.
I would love to see KZ, KZ2 and all PSP/VITA titles remastered on a single disc on the ps4..at 60 it would be a steal... Come to think of it KZ2 weighted something like 30-34gb...*(I'm too lazy to search right now) which means all of them wont fit. Well its nice to dream..
Then stop saying it.
That's not what the article or the forum posts states.
This guy talk senseless thing in every comment he makes
and he is fast too lol
Oh a bunch of remakes..great.
If they re-do the ORIGINAL Killzone, plus put all of the multiplayers together(including the original KZ's multiplayer), that would be something I'd buy.
Ummm actually reading the article it really isn't even mentioned, so I'm not sure why it's even in the title...Soooo nothing confirmed.... But at least it confirms the people who only actually read the title on N4g as opposed to actually reading the article itself
KILLZONE remaster day one!! I hope with their online section.. specially Killzone one and two online.. i don't care much about Killzone 3 online.. they could left that out.. And I hope the other remake remaster is Socom 2 ufff that will be a huge boom!!! GG have work on nam77 and they could easily remaster socom 2 or confrontation.. but this is me just dreaming
I for one wouldn't mind playing the Via KZ on ps4 as a digital download. Also i feel like many of sony europe's games won't be shown at e3.(gamescom a better time, especially with europe so big with PlayStation brand) here are my realistic expections from E3 2014: new Ceo comes out introduces himself talks about how ps4 is doing so well tags along ps3 and vita a Video trailer shows many of games coming to ps3 some Vita games are shown Drive club on stage demo psn-now(this new ceo is the one who has been pushing for psn now for a while. 10 plus minutes of talk and on stage demo, release date,price etc will be revealed Right after we get 10 or so minutes for project Morpheus, possibly a old ps3 game shown to br working with it or a new IP. ps4 games 1st and 3rd party: God of war collection coming to ps4 GOW4 teaser trailer NBA 2k15 on stage demo AC Unity on stage demo Project beast is demon souls 2 ND 3 plus minute gameplay trailer RS agent NAH GTA5 exclusive to ps4 for one year(R* owes sony big time for letting them out of their exclusive deal with GTA4, so expect some sort of reward) ps4 bundled with Vita for $549 ps4 bundle $399 with Knack and one more digital download If MS drops the price of xbox360 to $249 than ps3 same and if xbox360 is at $199 than same for ps3 The last of us coming June 13th I fully expect few more remasters thank you ladies and gentlemen, before we close the show here is The Last Guardian coming December 16th 2014 sony bend sony london MM GG their new Ip's saved for gamescom
All praise ye go to Sony 1st party
Dammit.... I wanted to see their new RPG at E3. Here's to hoping for something at Gamescon, which is starting to become more and more attractive.
If they show a re-master and not a new ip at E3, I will literally and metaphorically crap myself.
I was hoping for their next game. They might save it for Gamescom since they are an Eu developer. I expect a branding like the platinum range for the PS4 definitive edition games I am guessing Beyond Two Souls, Uncharted Collection, Puppeteer, Grand Turismo God of War Ascension.
More remasters? Oh goody..
Seriously, can we stop with these and focus resources elsewhere?
fast and dirty , easy money they can't help themselves
Remasters are the Megaton, todays system, playing yesterdays games, how can it get any better than that?
Yeah, I'm okay with remasters that are older titles with updated graphics, but the original Killzone is the only game that really deserves a remastered version, but two extra games thrown in is good value. Remember when they did a remastered version of Chronicles of Riddick with updated graphics with the new Riddick game Dark Athena: now that's how you do remastered games.
Did you read even the article?? No remaster has been confirmed
No, they just saw the word remaster in the headline and ran with it.
I think we will see new ip nxt E3 with October release date
Quantic Dream, Guerilla Games, Rockstar and Media Molecule will reveal games at Gamescom for sure.
After playing Into the Nexus, I am hoping Insomniac are doing a new R&C. That game has given me faith they still have the ability and desire to do a fully fledged R&C game.
Ya same here except in a recent interview Insomniac stated that R&C could come to xbox. This is because they are 'completely independent and have found a partner in microsoft.'
"Ya same here except in a recent interview Insomniac stated that R&C could come to xbox." No, it can't. Sony own the R&C IP.
The only remaster I really want is Heavy Rain.
I think it's very good as it is.
We as gamers want backwards compatibility but we instantly become skeptical with HD remasters. lmao. The stupidity.
It's not the same thing! Backwards compatibility allows you to play your purchased games on the newer system. Remasters, while they get upgraded to look better, they take resources away from developers to make them, instead of using them to make new ones, and you have to buy them again. The sole reason remasters became popular, is because of the whining that people did when Sony removed BW compatibility on the PS3. That was the first time people complained to much about it. I don't think anyone expected to play their NES games on the SNES, or their SNES games on their N64. BW was something that PlayStation innovated, but I always saw it as a bonus, never as a mandatory feature. After all, you buy new consoles to play new games. Also, if you already have the last console, why do you need BW compatibility anyway? That mindset of people not wanting to stand up, connect their old console and play the games, have made the industry focus on easy money on past games! Instead of making new ones! This is the most absurd thing I have ever seen in the gaming industry, because it's more expensive to remaster a game, than to remaster a DVD to Blu Ray. And worst of all, people LOVE to pay TWICE, as seen on the announcement of The Last of US remaster. So, that is why Sony and every gaming company will keep making them. For me the only Remaster that has value is ICO and Shadow of the Colossus. That game was very hard to get, and very few people go to play them. So that was the only one that made sense! Now they want to remaster 6months-1 year old games! It's ridiculous /rant
Not everyone has the space to keep all their old consoles around. Often people trade them in towards a new one.
That was a long unnecessary comment. I didn't buy my Ps4 to play Ps3 quality games on it. The Last of Us is getting a complete graphical upgrade, not an HD upscale. Most of the time the HD remakes are 30-40 dollars anyways, not even full retail price. If you don't want the game, don't buy it. simple as that. We don't need backwards compatibility with these new consoles. HD remakes work just well depending on the the game being worked on.
Did you ever stop to think that revenue from remasters just might go to fund new games? If you don't like remasters then you are not forced to buy them - it's really just as simple as that. Also, unless you are a games developer then you have no clue, let me reiterate, NO CLUE what resources are being used to make the remasters. Most of the time these are farmed out to small development studios that NEED the work to survive. I'm pretty sure it's a safe assumption that AAA talent in game studios is working on the next great thing. Also, many of the remasters were not played by everybody so they serve a niche market that is profitable. "And worst of all, people LOVE to pay TWICE, as seen on the announcement of The Last of US remaster. So, that is why Sony and every gaming company will keep making them." - who said people are paying twice? Some yes as I will for the Last of Us, but for many this will be their first time playing said games - especially Xbox 360 only gamers making the jump to the PlayStation platform. /rant
Backwards compatibility is totally different than remasrers. Remasters you have to buy AGAIN.
What's up with all the damn remasters?
PS4: Remasters Awaits...
@plasgasx and above, go read the article, there are no remakes being confirmed. TOP TIP O' THE DAY = Read more than the headline to avoid looking dumber than you are.
If these games were released cross-gen, even with improved visuals on the PS4, nobody would bat an eye. But release them as 'remasters' and everybody goes apeshit. What's the difference? And how many remasters are there exactly? Other than tomb raider and tlou?
As of now, not very many (Metro games are coming soon). I expect more will be coming as we saw plenty of remastered games last gen sell well and to be honest I am willing to buy a few if I think they deserve it and are priced accordingly. I actually think a lot of big sellers will see enhanced versions as they likely won't sell near as well as originals (most often) but porting/upgrading games gives "easy" extra cashflow as well as continual work for people so may not lay off as often or as many (less idle hands), allow bigger teams, or lead to more dev teams in the long run (as eventually remakes will wear thin but now have larger pool of experienced developers). Granted could look at it negatively and say "where are all the new games?", once remakes are out the door more layoffs could happen, etc but I would rather look at it from a positive angle. I would jump at the chance to get remastered Infamous games, uncharted titles, original Gears trilogy, Borderlands+dlc, etc. Devs/Publishers know I am not the only one either and can easily get another 1m+ in sales which is mostly profit second time around. Some people may also say "why not keep the ps3?", and truth is I am keeping it but having a "better version" on top of being able to save space (tons of consoles over the years, multiple cable types, etc) gets to become a priority if you can't afford a whole spare room just for nostalgia's sake. Remasters are in part for "serious" gamers which love even old games while allowing new audiences an easy chance to find some of the best games they may have missed. I sort of went off on a tangent there, but remastered games are going to be around forever I expect as even PC has joined the bandwagon when most old games can be modded to look or play better than the remake at a heavily discounted price (Doom and Baldur's Gate springs to mind).
Very well said and I agree 100% I love the opportunity to experience many games from previous generations with enhanced graphics and framerates. Not all appeal to me, but I appreciate the option to purchase the best version of a game that I never played or would like to experience again in enhanced form.
Question... Are the PS4 remasters taking a little bit away from the PSNow service/promise and vise versa? It seems to me in some respects these two things are competing for the same dollars. Why pay $60 for a remastered copy if you could rent the game on PSNow for around $10? I realize its not 100% apples to apples here and that PSNow does look to serve more than just PS4 owners but it does seem like one of the primary points made for the service on PS4 was to be able to play the great hits of the PS3. Anyway, its just a thought and am curious to hear what others think.
Good point--if it comes down to that I think it could lower cost of remakes or at least keep them manageable ($30-40 max for AAA remake seems reasonable unless like Metro it is 2+ games at once and then follow its example--boxed collection with "normal" pricing or cheaper digital, individual game option). It would also keep a lot of "unnecessary" remakes from being thrown around as renting some would simply be a better investment for most people.
In the event of a game existing on PSNow and also as a remaster, in my opinion, you just make a choice. If you loved the game or want to experience it at it's best, get the remaster; if you just want to zip through it to see what all the hype is about, PSNow is your best route. Of course, the choice within the PSNow service will be far greater and cover many generations of PlayStation classics, so this situation would be comparatively rare in any case.
...My guess is that no one read the article.
This is the internet--tangents are more interesting to discuss than 90% of original topics and reading the article is a total waste of time anyways.
Remasters serve a purpose, other than just more revenue to the publishers... Current gen games are bigger and take longer to make, it's that simple. If there were no remasters this gen, then the wait for new IP would be even more intolerable. I really don't see what the fuss is about. Remasters are just hole fillers, albeit good ones. Those who have never played them before or want upgrades benefit. You really don't have to re-purchase them if you once owned them before. However, if you no longer have your PS3...enjoy the wait ;)
Remasters also show current interest in genres. For example, DMC HD Collection sold around a million or something, so that shows that people are still interested in the series to prevent it going the way of Megaman.
Hopefully something good!
Putting resources into remasters of games that nobody wants. No wonder your new game couldn't make it to E3.
i hope its not a killzone collection
Jesus I cannot wait to play kill Zone 2 on ps4, that was truly the best one after they just went all call of duty and haloish with shadowfall I tried to like shadowfall so much but just couldn't 😣😣
I'd rather they stop with the remasters, TLOU was GOTY and many people didn't get to play it on ps3 so i get that, but most of the rest of last gen games don't really need remasters, sure maybe GTA V because it's so popular but that's it. I'd rather they focus on new stuff, or do REMAKES of old games people been asking for instead of remasters, half of the ps1 library qualifies for this lol.
There will soon be more remasters than new proper next gen games on the new systems, seriously these companies need to stop with the hd remakes , there's no point it's ruining the image of the consoles.
Killzone 2 and 3 full HD and 60 fps ? ohhh yes please :)
They haven't teased JACK!!!!
I think the dev's @ GG are bringing the most popular KZ 2&3 MP maps to Shadowfall (all retro man). So I think this is whats causing the confusion . Hopefully this will be free
