Dead Island may be stumbling onto Xbox One and PS4 a little later this year.
Don't call it a remaster, I do consider buying remasters,but this is looking like a port, with the short amount between now and release and Zero marketing, Its freaking port and I hate ports.
I prefer a bit of optimism myself. There's nothing to say this isn't a remaster, so maybe best to hold out hope for a remaster or at the very least a decent "port"
I know right bro, and you HAVE TO BUY IT TOO! I hope we get that damn law requiring us to buy ports removed!. /s
EXCUUUSE ME for cristisicing a practice I don't like and I think is terrible. I'm guessing you decided to buy everything that you criticised right?
bud...that is like going to every single article on a game you don't like and telling them to not make it...because you don't like the game. That practice is why you even still see new titles being made. They have the right to use their IP as they see fit. You don't need to buy it and I'm not even sure how a publisher or developer not making money helps you lol. Is them going poor something that makes you feel good? Did THQ do right by you for going under? lolz. Most don't even have real logical reasons why they hate ports other then assumptions of how they "think" they are made.
Plz let this be the last remaster from a multiplatform dev I don't wanna see these in 2016.
...close your eyes. I don't want to play Madden....so I don't. I mean...are you dying by knowing they exist? lol
The profit margins are simply too big to pass up remasters. If releasing remasters gets some cash flowing and different development teams can pitch more new IPs, then I am for it. I really want Hellraid to release so I have no problem giving Techland some cash. This is coming from someone that bought DI at launch and Riptide for full price shortly after release.
I'm excited about Hellraid too. Hope it has a retail release. I know it was put on hold to make The Following but I don't mind because I friggin love Dying Light.
"For the most part since before gen 8 launched demand for remasters has been higher than demand for new games" I can't say all that now, I don't even think that is feasible. Not enough remasters have sold or released to really support that statement. Folks want some remasters, but ultimately want new games more. As I'm sure the excitement for Detroit is higher then the excitement for Heavy Rain and Beyond Two Souls port. That news was so under the radar that after Sony's crazy E3 press event, those announcements where so left behind lol. I remember stating it weeks ago that they where being made and many on here didn't even know that. A I'm sure many are indeed excited for Heavy Rain and Beyond Two Souls PS4 remasters, I don't know if I can say any where near as excited as they are for Detroit.
I would buy it for sure. Despite the technical issues it's some of the most fun I have had in a co-op game. Hoping to see some improvements from the time they spent on Dying Light. I wonder what effects and optimizations they can add going from Chrome Engine 5 to Chrome Engine 6.
Never got a chance to play this game(was probably too busy playing Left 4 Dead), so I might check it out if this is true.
Now a L4D 2 remaster would sell like hotcakes. Even more so considering it was never on a Sony console.
Hell I was hoping for a L4D collection on PS3 years ago. I doubt Valve would do it though because they're not all too focused on games at the moment, lol.
They should remaster PS2 games
It'd be nice if this is a partial remake due to some of the technical issues it had.
Why? The game was a pile of crap!!
They are desperate for money, now that dead island 2 has stop production . They need to pay their bills
I don't know about that. One makes money because they can... I saw this remaster happening regardless of Dead Island 2's situation. Either way they make money, even if Dead Island 2 still had a team, they would likely still make a remaster of the first game lol. Is Dishonored not getting a sequel? And did the just not make a remaster not to long ago? I don't think they have much to do with each other. We've seen ports from teams that do well....we've see ports from teams that do poorly. The reality is....they are made to make money ,regardless of the situation.
Just stick to Dying Light.
