Sony: Backwards Compatibility is pointless, nobody wants to play old games.
Also Sony: Re-re-release of Shadow of the Colossus!!!

mikeslemonade518d ago

Plus probably new additions to the game and bosses. SotC remake won E3 2017 alone. Everybody else, sit down.

Well they aren't wrong, I don't want to play the old clunky PS2 version. It was a phenomenal game and I would like to replay it, but I won't because the nostalgia glasses just don't hold it up once you start playing. A remake with modern graphics and controls is an entirely different story.

Nodoze517d ago

100% agree on controls. I have tried to get in on this one but the controls simply break the immersion every time. If they update not just the look, but the feel and the control, 1000% in.

Adrian_v01518d ago

I'm honestly getting sick of all the remakes. I want new games, not this stuff.

MegamanXXX518d ago

You should tell that to Phil Spencer 😁

InTheZoneAC518d ago

Maybe if people didn't ignore ps3 they wouldn't remake a remake. Many people who own a ps4 didn't own a ps3 for whatever strange reason that may be.

kayoss518d ago

So you missed the rest of the conference? Did you not see they did announce to new games Or did you just decided ignore it?

Forn518d ago

Good thing Sony releases notable games every month. Not to mention all the other new games that get released week to week.

Dark_Knightmare2517d ago (Edited 517d ago )

Good thing there's been tons of new games released on ps4 so far this year with even more to come

authentic517d ago

its a remake, not a remaster.

Adrian_v01517d ago

There wasn't much to see there. The game releases for the rest of the year are rather disappointing.

Could you name those games?

What the hell has that got to do with my comment? I'm not buying them, which still doesn't change the fact that the teams and time could've been used developing a new ip instead.

Cupid_Viper_3517d ago (Edited 517d ago )

Sure yes you're right lol.

raWfodog518d ago

Backwards Compatibility refers to playing older games on current systems. SotC PS4 will be a completely remade game.

MADGameR518d ago

This is a REMAKE you dumby not a re-re-release.

Kribwalker517d ago

Still celebrating the return of an old game

Dark_Knightmare2517d ago

It's a remake and it's no different then movies getting rereleased on new formats all the time hell I just bought heat for the second time on blu ray alone but nice try trolling fanboy.

mkis007517d ago

Id rather play remakes than bc frankly. Graphics dont age well pre-hd.

Kribwalker517d ago

Sony was probably trying to figure out a way to make back the money lost on The Last Guardians 9 year devolpement time and decided to make them remake the same game for the third time (original, HD Remake, PS4 remake) so they could pump it out as fast as possible and try to make some money back

kowan517d ago (Edited 517d ago )

Haters who doesn't even bother watching or reading: I hate everything so I will spread false information based on my own assumptions that are based on nothing at all. (specifically on SOTC PS4)


Looking better than anything Scorpio has so far

Lynx0207517d ago

Remake. I would not play an old, ugly looking game again (I know, SotC is awesome game, but we have 2017 ffs), remake, on the other hand, I'm going to buy day one.

darthv72518d ago

I like the original, it was very ambitious and then the HD remaster addressed some of the originals issues and was very well done. I'll still get this version but it is rather telling how Sony downplayed older games only to release a remake. I guess we can look forward to a remake (or remaster) of last guardian on the PS5 / PS5 Ultra....?

tyasia0518d ago

It's pretty close to a new game with new art assets and graphical effects. But w/e, at least they aren't re-releasing the same game and shoving micro-transactions in it.

gangsta_red518d ago

Why release a free game with optional microtransactions when you can re-re-release the same game at full price?

stuna1518d ago

@ gangsta red

"Why release a game with optional microtransactions when you can re-release the same game at full price?"

That's actually a good question that you can actually ask Microsoft!Because besides re-releasing a game that they'll take $10 off at most, they'll also add a generous slathering of microtransactions in it to boot! So in all actuality gamers end up paying 2 to 3 times more for the game itself.

gangsta_red518d ago


What game are we even talking about?

And why should I ask MS when they are giving the option with most past games available to be played for free with BC if you own it?

rainslacker517d ago


Are you saying you wouldn't prefer a proper remake of the original Phantom Dust rather than the lazy port with added micro-transactions that they finally released?

Dark_Knightmare2517d ago

Im happy for it too I want the best possible quality and looks for my favorite games just like I do my movies which is why I buy the same ones over and over and over again

Allsystemgamer517d ago

Cough cough

Master chief collection

Cough phantom cough dust cough

Phill-Spencer518d ago

As someone who didn't play the old one, i'm excited for this!!

gangsta_red518d ago

I believe it's offered on PSNow, if you have a paid subscription for that service you can check it out there.

ILostMyMind518d ago (Edited 518d ago )

So, in the next PS Now story, will you praise the service?

gangsta_red518d ago (Edited 518d ago )

I've always praised PSNow....


I disagree, I think PSNow has the makings to be THE killer app for PS4.

PS has some of the best games in the last two generations. Imagine having that whole catalog available at a reasonable price.

Imagine if Sony had a price structure similar to Netflix's streaming service. They need to have a 6 month to a year price structure for unlimited streaming of every game at a decent price.

Then they need to push the service and bring it to the forefront of the consoles UI. Get the word out there and tell everyone the benefits of having not only PS4 games to play but a huge back catalog of great games from PS1, PS2 and PS3 games.

"Its very unlikely that consumers without a PlayStation console will have a DualShock 3 or 4 lying around and would be willing to continue paying the subscription cost."

How hard is it for a consumer to pick up a controller? They purchased a TV they could easily buy a controller. Or maybe Sony can offer some kind of deal where a controller comes with every TV that has their service.



I'm shocked you missed that and many other comments from me IvanSF, praising the PSNow service.

THamm517d ago

I loved PSnow, and the price is what's keeping me away. Being able to access it on different devices and PC is key. I would sign up for game pass yet no xboxone ATM


Me too, looking forward to it.

gangsta_red518d ago

"This remake is using new assets and graphics engine although Sony is still labeling it as a remaster just like Crash Bandicoot Trilogy. The development of the game is being handled by Bluepoint Games who are well known for remastering games. They also worked on the ICO and Shadow of the Colossus HD remaster for PS3"

It'll be interesting if they add anything new, like more monsters or anything else besides better visuals.

DaGreatOne518d ago

Man you got hit with a lot of down votes for quoting the article. Either that or wanting additional content. Facts and options must be frown on I guess.

DaGreatOne517d ago

Yeah I realized who it was afterwards so I quickly understood after I posted nevertheless I see nothing wrong with the quote. But I get the down votes now.

gangsta_red517d ago

Exactly who am I? Lol, dont fall for the traps here.

UCForce517d ago

Remake is also make the gameplay even better. Tell me this, why Microsoft canceled Phantom Dust remake ? It would be so much better than remastered version.

gangsta_red517d ago

Why are you asking me why MS cancelled the remake of Phantom?

And what does that have to do with me wondering if the people doing this game will add more monsters or anything else.

We have other remakes like FF 7 that are actually changing a lot of the design and chore mechanics from the original game as well as visuals. Is this doing the same?

UCForce517d ago

You two make your statement very poorly. That's why you two get downvote. Like Crash Bandicoot remake have been improve a lot from original game. That's call remake.

septemberindecember517d ago

His comment was phrased appropriately. Shadow of the Colossus is being remade, and asking if there will be extra content in the game is an apt question. There shouldn't be anything wrong with it.

This looked fantastic. I still kinda like the old ps2 art style though.
