Christopher Buffa (Prima Games): It was inevitable that a handful of publishers would release Xbox 360 and PS3 games on the newest consoles. What we didn’t expect was the high level of quality across the board. Both Metro Redux and Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition outpace their predecessors, while Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto 5 for Xbox One and PS4 looks so incredible it demands everyone’s attention, even if they played it last year. This trend should continue into 2015, with the popular Saints Row 4: Re-Elected + Gat out of Hell slated to arrive on January 20th. Indeed, what is old is new again.
The influx of quality reboots resulted in an ongoing discussion around the office concerning The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim and a potential re-release on Microsoft and Sony’s machines.
