Wasn't really that interested in the first place, but now the fact that they're skipping Steam means it'll be a definite no from me. Still waiting for Crash 4 to come to Steam and that's a brand new game. Can certainly wait for a game that I've already played multiple times before...

I am not interested, but only because I own the originals on PS2 and prefer to play games as they were originally experienced. I suppose if I hadn't played them when they launched and were thus sentimentally attached in silly, superficial ways, I would jump all over this in a heartbeat. But I did, and so when I play them, I'm not just playing the games... I'm looking to relive those old times as well. And when you're looking to relive old times, you want things to be as close to those old times as humanly possible.



Heck no, don't want things to be as close to old times as humanly possible! I was in a pretty shitty place in my life when GTA 3 came out. During vice city I was too depressed to enjoy the game and gave up on it. I wouldn't mind replaying them in a different setting. But I fear it won't look all that good on 65" 4K tv.

I'll decide based on whether the soundtrack is left intact. If stuff got scrapped due to licenses being expired, then no thanks.



UPDATE: Insider reports now say the original late 2021 release date is for last-gen versions (PS4, XBO, and Switch) only. PS5 and XBX/S versions won't release until 2022.

Well, my anticipation just dipped a little with this news. I still plan on getting it when it does eventually hit PS5, whenever that may be. I love me my nostalgia and relive it whenever I can, especially when I have no way of playing the original PS2 releases of GTA3, Vice City and San Andreas, anymore.

But hopefully this means we're getting the "true" definitive versions that actually take advantage of next-gen hardware. That's what sets concurrent first-party exclusives (Sony exclusives also releasing on PS4: GT7, HZD2, etc.) from true next-gen first party exclusives: the PS5 versions are only upscaled versions. Games like Returnal, Demon's Souls remake, Marvel's Wolverine, etc. actually take advantage of the PS5's hardware and pushed to their full potential.



My toaster is disappointed and feels left out, it was really looking forward to joining in with all it's various console and PC mates around the house playing the GTA Trilogy, so it's back to Skyrim on toast.

We first have to see if this is a remaster or remake. Since if its just a remaster, your getting a little ahead of yourself hoping for true PS5 upgrades.

You'd think this would need to be a remake to hold up today, but crazier things have happened.
