If Max Payne 3 is as successful as LA Noire, re-releasing the original games in HD may be a good move for Rockstar.
Wont happen. Rockstar doesn't do HD collections and you can by those games on Steam.
Heck you can play them right on Xbox Live, just download them. Not sure if its on PS3, but check it anyway.
He's referring to playing them in HD. You can't play them in HD on the 360.
They do HD remakes for mobile phones: http://androidandme.com/201... Regardless, the original max payne games are pretty much HD already: the PC version supports any resolution, and the some of the textures can rival current gen games. It's just the 3d models that look a bit outdated and make the game look a bit behind, but most of the HD remakes (except for perhaps Halo CE) never bother with reinroducing hi-detail models anyway.
they get stretched in widescreen resolutions tough
If there was one publisher I'd want in on the HD remaster trend, it would be Rockstar. I'd absolutely love to see Max Payne and GTA collections. The crazy thing is they've done re-releases for Max Payne and GTA on iPad.
I do wish they would. I never played the first 2 Max payne games but yet I really like what I'm seeing from Max Payne 3. Definitely going to have to play them before max payne 3.
Max Payne is coming out on iPad soon, but yes just buy the PC version.
Yes this would be quite nice along with a GTA HD bundle around the time GTA 5 comes out.
Just use Steam or dl the games off Xbox Live.
Xbox 360 cannot output native 1080p. Everything and anything above 720p is up-scaled. Including the Menu. Besides, if you don't have a PC capable of running Max Payne 1-2 on PC in this day and age, I don't even know what to say to you.
Xbox 360 was able to output native 1080p since long ago. Some of the games (Perfect Dark, Virtua Tennis, NBA Street etc) already run in NATIVE 1080p). The X360 upscaler is only an additional piece of hardware for upscaling games that do not run in full 1080p (most games)
MEH.. damn i am so fucking played those games on fucking PC for about 100 times.. so its NO for me, damn..
I've played Max Payne 1 on my good old Pentium 3 with a Geforce 4 (or was it 2 or 3). Sure was a long time ago. A HD remake for the consoles might be appropriate but for a PC...it's kinda strange. You already have a playable game in the first place regardless of the graphical quality.
I think both these games still look good enough that they don't need an HD remake.Like me,if someone still has their PS2,then the better idea is to just buy the two games at a very cheap price.
Their best played on a PC ppl. Max Payne 1/2 mods are tottaly awesome.
