Capcom and Nintendo are both betting heavily on remakes, remasters, and ports. Is this good for everyone? Or is it just good for them?
It is good for everyone as long as the games being remade, remastered, and ported are good.
Yeah truth is a lot of games don't hold up over time, that doesn't mean they aren't great. Upgrading things for the modern age is fine, don't have to buy them if you're not interested.
Depends entirely on how they are handled.
Purely depends on the remake. If time and money are invested properly, like what appears to be happening with Resident Evil 2, then it is great! But quick cash grabs are obviously shit.
Yeah like those Prototype ports that ran the same as they did last generation
Yeah, those popped into my head but I wasn't certain it would be considered a "remake" as opposed to a "remaster". Remasters seem to be most of a cash grab than remakes, though notable exceptions would be The Last of Us and GTA 5.
How they leave sony out they love selling you the game over and over again cant wait to play the last us remasterd remastered masterd on PlayStation7
Xbox fans didn’t have a problem with it when MS released the MCC or Gears Of War Ultimate.
Agreed. Also, I wouldn't say that Sony is relying on remasters in the first place since they have the most diverse first party line-up of this generation and have made the most successful new IP's of any first party devs. OTOH, it seems that all of the remasters MS does now have simply been through BC which means that they're also completely free to anyone who already owns the games. GeoW Ultimate is the one recent exception (2015).
Funny how all of the Big 3 are doing this, and yet you only mentioned Sony.
Hmmm...name me the games that have had more than one remaster for the PlayStation line through history. You can include cross gen ports if you'd like, because those are kind of normal. Just remember, there has to be more than one remaster. SOTC doesn't count, because the PS4 version wasn't a remaster, that was a remake similar to R&C. One stipulation. Make sure they're Sony published games. I'll be waiting.
Yall mad tho......Playstation is wack
I personally never had a problem with remakes, remasters, etc. It is all entirely optional and no one is forced to buy them. The only thing I wished is that with remasters sometimes I wish they put a little more effort into the graphical department.
