''It appears that Dishonored is due to be given the ‘Remastered’ treatment. A Brazilian site leaked the classification of DishonoredDefinitive Edition, set for release this year.''
Almost 2 years into the current gen and we're still getting possible remasters in the future. Dishonoured is a great game don't get me wrong but come on it's getting a bit ridiculous with the remasters. 1st party remasters are fine I guess but 3rd party remasters at this point shouldn't be happening now.
I feel like everyone who wanted to play it has already played it. The Game of the year edition dropped in price pretty damn quick, and it's constantly on Steam sales for a few quid. I'm not sure how many people would buy it purely because it runs better.
I've never played it . & I don't game on my last gens anymore
Not to mention the fact that it was free on PS Plus last month; I'm currently playing it and it's definitely better than Thief. I don't think I would be interested in playing it again on PS4 though. Just give us a remaster of Dark Souls 1 and then we can call an end to this remastering trend.
@MrCrimson You do realize it is entirely optional to buy the remastered version. Whoever is twisting your arm...you've been duped.
"I feel like everyone who wanted to play it has already played it." I want to play it but i haven't yet. I have the it on my shelf right now but I don't have time to play everything in my backlog.
I finished it 12 times already. A remastered with higher resolutions doesn't interest me.ANNOUNCE DISHONORED 2 AT THIS E3! SHOW A DEMO!!!!
Just what we needed, another remaster. Instead of these developers making new games, they waste their time on remasters. This gen is infested with remasters... Unbelievable.
The only remaster we should be getting is ps2 and ps1. Ps3 remaster needs to be done on the ps5.
That is a solid statement. The only remasters should be with distant past consoles' "extremely well received" games on current gen consoles... And they should be an extremely selected few with the genres being diverse.
I'm getting tired of remasters that add nothing except higher resolutions and MOAR DLCs. A full remake could have been better.
Remasters are fine. We can have both remasters and new titles with out effecting new game development too much. They bring awareness to series that have new titles coming that some people never got to explore. Contrary to popular belief, they aren't hurting development of other titles and they stop the crazy dry spots for we had for new releases last gen. It's usually just a few people working on them over a period of a few months. Not some huge development team.
I'm all for remasters but 60 bucks a pop is what I have a really big problem with...they should not cost that much especially if its just getting a slight frame rate and graphics update
Gotta love no BC. its going to sell tho. We know why. If it sells does that mean people wanted BC
Actually no BC is one of the reasons I have not got the PS4 yet. Basically I got first editions PS2 and PS3 mainly because they were BC. One of main reasons for getting a console with BC was the fact that I still had previous games that I was playing or had yet to play. While it would be rare for me now to play a PS1 (all PS3's can play PS1 disks) game since the output even with smoothing on is fairly grainy although the game-play is the same. On the other hand PS2 games look fairly reasonable even on my 55" HDTV. I will eventually get a PS4 and am hoping for a bundle (preferably Action/Adventure and RPG) that will make it attractive for me to buy, until then back to FF12 (PS2 version) and for variation maybe Demon's Souls, Dark Souls and Skyrim. Oh! I also have "Dishonored Game of the Year Edition" (cost AU $19.00) which I have only just started to play so even when I get a PS4 I would have no interest in buying the remastered version of it.
I play remastered games all the time on my PC. I upgraded to a 290x and 1600p on 30" monitor. Dishonored looks stunningly good at full max 1600p. Deus Ex Human Revolutions (except the cutscenes) looks great. The Witcher 2 still crushes most graphics cards. Just Cause 2 is fabulous. And the list goes on. As a PS4 owner, there is no way I would get God of War because it was so freaking good on PS3. My favorite two re masters ever are Zelda Wind Waker and The Last of Us. The Metal Gear Solid HDs and the original Ratchet and Clanks were great too.
Backwards compatibility ftw! :p Will be playing deus ex, witcher 2 & fallout new vagas before the new ones. There is a certain joy and about playing skyrim then farcry 4. Guess cuz I still own my games? Yes I am weird like that. But then again u could rent them from sony for an ok price. As absurd as it seems I think x86 games on ps4 won't work on ps5 to help ps now sales and people will complain and move on when a naughty dog logo is shown to destract them. Console gaming and remakes seem to be a success and I am sure publishers are planing future remakes already for ps5/xbtwo Call of duty remakes incoming.
Loved Dishonored but I really don't think it's a game that needs a "remaster".
Your right only the really good games need to be remastered IMO. Uncharted series would be good but remasters like Borderlands just weren't needed.
I didn't get to play it, so being able to experience a better version is fine for me.
Dishonored was awesome. Well done, good story. Completely left you hanging in the end...kind of abruptly really. You'll enjoy it.
There's always someone...
Of all the remasters and the only one I would love is still no where in site...Witcher 1 & 2 I mean it would of been perfect before the Witcher 3 comes out.
Witcher 1 would be a no go, Witcher 2 (the 360 port) is pretty damn good, shame it was pretty much overlooked by the masses :( I can't see them doing Remasterings of either to be fair
If I remember correctly they have previously stated to that effect. So no remasters of those by the looks of it.
I think you know why it was overlooked
I actually wouldn't mind a Bioshock Infinite remaster for ps4/x1. Complete/definitive edition ofc, every last bit of dlc included
I completely agree about witcher 1 & 2, but I would also add Knights of the old republic 1 & 2 to my list of games I want to see remastered on ps4/xbox1
Do you mean an updated console port of witcher 2? It still looks amazing on pc IMO. Witcher 1 is showing its age, but I'd rather cd projekt red focus on cyberpunk than reworking thier old library.
I'm still waiting for Dishonored 2 and Dishonored doesn't need to be remastered it came out a couple years ago
Worst trend in gaming ever. Now I fear what lazy rip off tactics the industry will inflict upon the nextgen of consoles.
I waiting for the first remaster of a remastered addition
Halo 1 in the MCC and resident evil 1 HD remake are two examples. With that said I don't mind remasters
Final Fantasy 10 on PS4. Remaster of a remaster.
Ok now it is definitely getting a bit too much :/ I don't feel like this needs to be re-done. I don't think DMC needed to be remastered either.
scratch that..wrong game.
they have remastered milking....just stop it already
It isn't the remastering that bothers, it's the ludicrous price gouging, yes GTA I'm looking at you. If only all the developers would take the Metro Redux as the water mark for pricing. I have so much respect now for that developer for the exquisite work in developing that package and selling it on at a decent rate. Not to mention it not needing a bazillion patches to actually work, legendary!
"Guys don't worry, we're still in the beginning of the console cycle. It's always slow. Devs need time to get used to the hardware." - Defensive fanboys a year ago
If you were talking about the PS2, P3 and the XB360 I would agree with you, but the architecture for the PS4 and the XB1 is basically PC which has been well known for years. Unless the developer is programming to the metal all they normally need to do is use the libraries or API's associated with the respective consoles. Of course they still have to know how to program or at the very least use the gaming engine. In a nutshell game development like any software development is dependent on multiple inputs from the initial concept designers, the artists, the programmers, lots of management, Q&A and finally to the end product and I am just scratching the surface here.
I don't mind remasters when they are good value or incredibly good games that benefit from being played on a superior system. TLOU was a great game that truly became better when remastered. The Masterchief Collection, online issues aside, represents an incredible amount of content for a 60$ asking price. My main issue with remasters is when they're basically re-releasing the same game, usually with its DLC, with some minor improvements and are using this as a reason to justify selling us what is essentially a souped up PC version for 60$ when the original game sells for 15-20$ or often less.
Good call I'd forgotten about the MCC D'oh! Excellent value especially as it's been fixed up as of late. Was TLOU sold again at full whack? Not bashing it, I love the game it's a genuine curiosity.
The last of us is great but the remaster should have not been 60 bucks...it would have been great at 40 since it looked slightly better than the ps3 version and running at 60 fps does not justify it being 60 bucks...like I said 40 bucks is the best price for remasters if its only one or two games
almost positive TLOU:R launched at $50.
It was 49.99
I know it's the unpopular opinion but I really would like a Dishonoured remaster since I didn't manage to play it on my PS3, BUT I do hope the price tag will be 30$ max.
Gears of War Ultimate edition has just shown up on the same Brazilian site too http://portal.mj.gov.br/Cla...
Thia gen console is just last gen PC.
If you ask me, I say keep the remasters coming as long as they price it accordingly. Single game remasters should never be more than 30 or 40 dollars in my opinion..I kind of like the way that the Metro Redux pricing was done for example. I want a Crysis 1 2 & 3 collection and a Mass Effect 1 2 & 3 collection TBH
I'll buy it, but I missed it the first time around, as I did quite a few games (sold my PS3). So this gen is all Nintendo exclusives on Wii U/3DS and remastered games on PS4, with the occasional new game like Dragon Age and Witcher. And ya know what, I'm ok with that. Of course, next-generation I'll have played all of these games so if they do this again next gen I won't be so happy.
We all have the choice to buy or not so what's all the whining? I'm buying cause I loved the game, played it twice and will definitely like to see it shined up on a new console.
Another re-master la de da.
You know.. As long as its not holding developers back from making new games then im all about it. Haven't played alot of games from last gen including the batman games which im looking foward to.
Duh, but when people are under the type of mind control there under, The Industry can CASH IN. So much for Next Gen, how bout "RE-Gen/RE-Skin it generation", that's more accurate. Addicts, that's what gamers are, BEND OVER.
People have been buying video games for a long time and I don't think they're going to stop anytime soon... The more options there are to buy or try or play a game, the better for everybody. These are just little releases on the side and it's not going to keep developers from making good games...so just wait till E3 to see the main releases/new IP's or whatever- instead of getting mad that remasters are being released.
Meh, I'm ok with remasters. Not everyone has played all these games so if re-mastering allows people with newer consoles to experience some old games they missed the first time around then that's a good thing.
This is great! One of my favorite games last gen. Oh, this made my day :D
I'm delighted, as I was a fool and sold my PS3 when I was seriously down on funds, missing out on this game that I KNOW I would totally adore. Now I'll have that chance. I will concede that this sorta thing is a cheap 'n easy cashgrab by devs. The greedy b*stards won't even give us a knockdown price for the bit'o spit and polish and a resolution upgrade. The real excitement here is that I think (though it's just speculation) that this is pretty indicative that a new Dishonored will be revealed at E3: Bethesda clearly wants to keep the franchise alive and in gamers minds.
I really don't mind remasters. Dishonored was a great game. If you don't want them nobody is forcing you to buy them. For people that haven't played these remasters and who have next-gen consoles and not a good enough PC, it a great way to experience some great games. I think the pricing is often to high, but if you wait it's possible to get them cheap. I got TLOU Remaster for $12. I think 19.99-29.99 is a fair asking price.
Any game being remastered should be atleast 5 years old,the amount of developers into cheap money has been skyrocketing lately
Oh stop whining, if 1st party remastered games are acceptable than so should 3rd party games. If you were ok with the last of us than shut up about other games. Just like you all stated then, maybe there are gamers who missed out on these games for whatever reason. This is exactly what we deserve, if we the gamers had pitched a fit when these remakes started MAYBE we would actually have some new games worth playing other than the handful after two years into "nextgen".
"if we the gamers had pitched a fit when these remakes started" Gamers did, you just missed the boat.
This is the saddest generation of gaming. If Snes had remasters it would have failed miserably, mario 3 was amazing, but mario world was better and was a reason to buy the system. But some of you just like throwing money away, you'll learn the value when your older and wish you hadn't been paying "new" prices for games that came out years earlier that could have been bought for super cheap.
At this point, remasters are getting a bit out of hand. We need new IPs and more new games, not time devoted solely to remaking ones that are still fresh in peoples' minds. Maybe if they were doing it like Dishonored 2 gets the first game on-disc similar to how Bayonetta 2 had the first Bayonetta on-disc.
A bit?go count them and compare it to prior gens lol.
Last generation we had a little over twenty remasters over the course of four years. Right now, we have 15 over the course of a year and a half. I think it's safe to say it's gotten out of hand lol.
Don't care. Give someone the pleasure. No skin off my nose.
As long as gamers keep buying this shit gaming companies will keep making them. I just have not seen any truly innovating and unique games this current gen to make me get into the new consoles. With all these dam remastered games coming out it's not what I want in gaming.
One of the worst endings of last gen
