This gen there have been numerous remastered ports of classic titles re-released on the PS3 and 360 but only one has moved a million copies.
Well deserved....just goes to show GOW series has legs and people are still interested
Wasn't it the first ever HD Collection title? It was the one that started the trend of HD Remasters which are nice IMO.
I like them too, I don't know what people have against HD collections. You get more games on the same disc with HD graphics and trophies for $40 or less. How is that a bad thing???
Yeah I don't see the problem. If one does not like it then can't that person simply not purchase it instead of complaining about it.
I don't really think many people are against remakes/remasters at all. But I think SOME, like myself, are more wery of how many and more specifically WHICH games are being remade/remastered. I do like the GoW remasters, and it's nice to have the trophies and all the games on a single platform, so I'm not against the GoW ones at all. But to be fair, were any of those games really old enough to warrant the remasterings? IDK, but they're still good. And FFX is a great game to remaster/remake now. And as for the ICO collection, I think Shadow of the Colossus should have been a PS3 game to begin with, so I just bought that on PSN the other day now that I could get it apart from Ico for cheaper. But the Jak games? Sly? Silent Hill? and a host of other? I honestly think some of these are a waste of gaming industry funds. But I suppose as long as they make money, they;re good for the industry. And some of the games I see people request get remasters.....jeez. Sometimes it's just rediculous. On the PS Blog and PS related sites I always see people say they want Gran Turismo 1 2 or 3 remastered in HD.........even though Gran Turismo 5 exists which is basically "Best of GT HD"? Halo 2 HD? Really? Wasn't Halo 3 Halo 2 HD? So you're saying you want Halo 3 released again?.....WTF is going on in some people's brains? /rant @kiasu GoW games didn't really start the trend of remakes. They've been happening for a LONG time in gaming. The earliest I can recall off the top of my head would be Final Fantasy 1 being remade to FF6 quality. But I'm sure there were a couple before that even. So remakes aren't a new trend. But it used to only happen to the best of the best classic games. The only new trend is the great number of games being remade, and it happening to some games which might not really warrant the remake.
Except for the thousands that bought these hd collections from psn, like myself, don't count here.
I'm actually going through Titan mode in God of War II right now.. very unforgiving.
I didn't find titan mode in any GoW games hard. I got Platinum in all but one (Ghost of Sparta). Just missing one trophy.
I got the Platinum, but you don't need to beat Titan mode for that.
09/10. Was it really that long ago. DAMN, feels like it only came out last year. The ever reliable VgChartz has it at 2.47m :O. Where the hell do they find there numbers from.
GoW collection Vol. 1 reaching 1 m. is old news, I remember seeing those numbers a year ago so it probably sold 2 m. by now.
Do they not count Halo CE Anniversary as a remastered game? Or is it something else because they used a whole new engine to fit over the old one? Not sure, but I know Halo CEA has sold well over 1 million copies.
Ya. I'm not sure why they didn't count it. It's at 1.7 million. http://www.vgchartz.com/gam... I'd love to see Shadow of the Colossus/Ico reach these numbers. It's so amazing!
Actually, it's the first to reach 2 million. It's at 2.47 million now. http://gamrreview.vgchartz....
I did that.
Ico & SoTC HD deserves more sales
