I expect to see bitch fests once Grand Theft Auto V hits. Then I expect bitch fests whenever a re-release of a title comes the year after it releases, like what happened all last gen. Only we whine and cry about it now since what would have normally been a GoTY edition w/ DLC got released on the newer console.

Not being re-released on PS3 and being re-released on PS4 with a few upgrades is the only differences from the norm we have dealt with for the last half decade.


We will have some bitching about Halo MCC from Sony camp... about GTA V maybe a little from both sides because of overrated... but all others will probably have a free pass, but I don't think a remaster will get as much hate as this (even Tomb Raider were already at crazyness overhate).

Maybe I have been seeing a different site, but I haven't noticed constant thread after thread bitching about MCC around VGC for over a month or so BEFORE the game released and after AFTER it released. So why not let us wait for people to btch about before we say the Sony camp will bitch about it. We should also expect to see these journalists bitching about MCC too, right?

I also haven't seen bitching threads about GTAV either, and you won't see me bitch since I chose to avoid GTAV because I knew full well it would re-release, just I knew TLOU would as well since a PS4 version has been a topic of discussion since before the PS3 version even released.

It is like some would rather them have just released nothing at all and said "FU" to anyone who didn't have a PS3 and owns a PS4 now and might have interest in the inevitable sequel. That and people have selective memories.

I suppose my problem with the Remastered edition isn't that it exists, but why it exists in the first place. The goal was to give the people who owned a PS4 but not a PS3 the ability to play the game, but this shouldn't even be a problem in the first place. Removal of backwards compatibility is my biggest complaint leveled against current gen consoles.



So, let me get this straight.

Despite being a 'must buy' for new gamers, Sony should not have released the game this year. They should have admitted they have no games, done nothing about it, waited a few years, then launched the title into a far more competitive gaming environment. It would have been the right thing to do.

He also calls the game the biggest PS4 exclusive of 2014 to lend weight to his attempts to disparage the line up of this year, but Infamous launched back in March.

Finally, saying the game should not have been remastered, should have released in digital only format and at a significantly cheaper price is one viewpoint. Personally, I'm happy to pay more for an enhanced looking game, more fitting of my new console experience. I also want the physical copy, thanks.

Nope, I took from your post your general attitude towards Sony... which game is greater value is relevant to the person who is buying and subjective... and complaining about one game, but not the other is hypocrite.


No it's not. There was objectively far more effort put into MCC than TLoU HD. If someone is complaining about TLoU HD being a poorly timed cash grab, that offers very slight improvements over the original less than a year later, then that same line of argument doesn't apply to MCC in any remote sense.

And my attitude towards Sony? The attitude that the PS4 is worth owning and the XB1 isn't? Your logic is terrible.

Why'd you have to bring Halo into this? The Master Chief Collection is on an entirely different level from TLOU. 


I didn't bring Halo on this, the author did... I'm just saying fewer people (and 0 articles) complained about it as a counterpoint for the article. I have no problem with Halo MCC as I think it will bring great value for Halo fans and X1 players;


No. You did - by posting this piece of nonsense article.

I like XBox, ok, but even I'm sick of terrible journalists trying to clamour for a bit of attention by jumping on the "TLOU on PS4 is bad (for some reason)" bandwagon". It's pathetic and it smells like desperation.

But I guess the gaming journalism standards are about as low as they can be - nevertheless, I'm stating my opinion. This shit has to stop.


Sorry you lost me here.

Your first post was to complain about I bringing Halo MCC on it, but now that you got answers saying the point was brought by the article you decide to complain about the article... so in the end you just don't like that Halo is being put under criticism?


No. I don't like the article, I don't like that you posted it and I don't like that the article (and you) mention Halo.

It's attention seeking and in poor taste and the gaming world is full of it. Is that clear?

Sony has the popular console out right now and people are going to nitpick every little thing about it and its games. Someone said it before in this thread, they should of just dropped the remastered part from the title and called it a goty edition.

Read the article.


Why!?

I guarantee that there isn't a single morsel of information or a single new perspective in there that I haven't seen (enough of) before. This is getting old and boring... and pathetic.

You're right, the article is bad, but it's also the article that brings the MCC into this and not the OP.


I guess it's not his fault for posting it then.

 

*sarcasm alert*

I apologize OP! :) :) :)

Well I'm happy it exists :)

Yes and just like how anyone who did not have an XBox and/or XBox360 that might own an XBone should be happy that a great Halo collection is coming their way so early in the gen to get them prepared for the next Halo title, which will of course be on the XBone.

I will never get the reason why the TLoU:R is the current "cancer" of the gaming industry. There was money to be made, there was an audience and there was (what I can only assume) a reasonable demand for it.

The trend of re-leases started well before this, so I genuinely do not see the lasting harm in this. It was pretty early to remaster it but it was the best time for it, while the hype and relevance of the game is still going.

The costs to place the Cell and PS3 hardware into the PS4 would make the console not only larger, but much more expensice to produce, we are talking $500+ launch price easy. Doing that was NOT an option. It runs on an entirely different architecture (x86) to boot.
