I liked that game a lot. Excluding the DLC, I played every inch of that game right down to going on dates.

#3 Posted by jsmoke03 (13363 posts) -

lol, so its a 2 year port?

that price tag needs to come down a lil bit.

anyway this isnt a remaster...you guys need to calm down like ports are something new in this industry....

Vote with your dollars people.

I bought Tomb Raider DE on PS4 because I had a gift card and only paid $30 for it. I just picked up The Last of Us on PS4 because I got it for "free" with two trades. I would never have spent the full asking price for these as I already had them on PS3.

At this rate I'm expecting to see NBA Live 10 Definitive Edition some time next summer.

Square Enix getting that dough.

@musicalmac: I got it on steam for like eight bucks just haven't fired it up yet. Is it that fun?

As for the topic, this wont stop. Because people buy them. And I knew this was the new thing last gen when GoW collection came out. I could understand the upgrade from sd to HD.

Love the game but already played it in 1080P on the PC.....this does need to stop. I don't know, how about Sleeping Dogs 2 instead? Lazy assholes.

#9 Posted by Gamerno6666 (3691 posts) -

Loved the game but this is just ridiculous. Sigh.

#10 Posted by Legend002 (8599 posts) -

Why does this need to stop? Wait for a drop or not get it at all. You either buy it or you don't.

who buys a next-gen console to play old games you have to buy again at full price? Why did they remove backward compatibility goddammit!

#12 Posted by PrincessGomez92 (3865 posts) -

Yes, "Definitive Edition". Lol.

Because they found that people are saps and will pay for anything.

#14 Posted by pyro1245 (1079 posts) -

Yeah I agree, but people keep buying these old games for new prices so they keep doing it.

removed? it was never possible.

I haven't played Sleeping Dogs.

We should skip that part where we go "ugh another port" and just be like, yo remember that fun part in Sleeping Dogs.

I liked the breaking peoples legs with the combat move. Good times. Batman needs more of that. Like Batman's combat is overall vastly superior, but Batman doesn't break anyone's legs. Wei Fucking Shen does. Correct this Batman.

#17 Edited by GoldenElementXL (4119 posts) -

I loved Sleeping Dogs on PC don't get me wrong. I just don't get it. Sleeping Dogs is 2 years old and was considered a sales failure. How is it a good idea to launch it at $60 or even at all? It doesn't make business sense.


Edit: I think I'm starting to see why we don't have backwards compatibility.

#19 Posted by LadyBlue (4064 posts) -

Stop? No what needs to stop is the ever increasing whining over the subject.

So they're porting the game to newer system, big whoop. Are you being forced to buy it? No, right. Feel free to proceed with more whining about how it affects new game developments, even if it makes little sense.

#20 Posted by Alucard_Prime (3678 posts) -

Awesome game for those who never tried it, I put in about 20 hours last Gen, not double dipping on this one,,....I will with the Gta5 rerelease though

#21 Posted by Slashkice (13739 posts) -

Meh, I'll pass. I already beat it along with the DLC and it's not a game I care to revisit. I'll keep on waiting for Triad Wars.

Again, what is the point of making new games when you can just port your old games over and they still sell?

Gen VII-2

On PC

Why does it need to Stop ?

If they want to resell a slightly updated game for full price then thats their business, obviously anyone who falls for it is a moron... But thats there choice to make and we have no right to stop them.

#25 Posted by gameofthering (10514 posts) -

Seems like many games are being re-released again.

#26 Posted by onewiththegame (4264 posts) -

I passed on sleeping dogs the first time see no need to get it now

#27 Posted by Blabadon (28977 posts) -

If only they could fix the shit mission design here

Ask all of the companies that keep on making new games regardless of porting some of their old ones. smh

It doesn't need to stop. Ports are fine as long as they are priced well. $60 HD ports need to stop. $40 is the max they should be launching at.

#31 Edited by DEadliNE-Zero0 (5717 posts) -

Why Sleeping Dogs? Why? Really why this game? It's not a bad game, just, why does SD need an HD port?

I'm starting to think we should take bets on the next game to be remastered.

#32 Posted by aroxx_ab (11046 posts) -

I have not played the game so for the right price i may pick it up.

#33 Posted by thecruzan (105 posts) -

Haven't played Sleeping Dogs but I don't plan on getting it when it releases. Too many other good games are coming out. I might just wait for a price drop or not get it,

#34 Posted by DEadliNE-Zero0 (5717 posts) -

Also full price for a single game? Either Sleeping Dogs is getting a full remaster ala Halo anniversary, or it's going to get "resolution/fps bump because next gen". Let's take a guess which one it'll be.

^^

This, I'm perfectly fine as long as they bring over ports I'd want to get and not cross that $40 thresh hold. The only game I'd even consider going over $40 for a remaster/port was TLOU.

My bet would be Hitman Absolution. That's the last game in Squares sales failure trio that hasn't had a "Definitive Edition" announced.



Wait has the Uncharted series remaster been officially announced yet? Naughty Dog can't let Square out remaster them!

I made thread about this DE like 2 months ago . Looks like it wasn't rumor after all .

#39 Edited by uninspiredcup (13613 posts) -

The pc version was significantly better looking than the console version and technically, next gen.

If being the only option of a peasant existed (incredibly powerful pc) (really fast) the option of getting a much better version of a fantastic game, would be very appealing.

The enhancements to Dues Ex: Human Revolution combining the missing link as well as fixing the poor battles was a fairly cheap digital upgrade on the pc that gave a great excuse to go back and play as Christian Bale in Blade Runner land.

Master race is checking in if backwards compatibility still works in there machine *evil laugh*.

Eh Sleeping Dogs > Wertch Dogs anyway.

Already played this in 1080p I'll pass

Absolutely.

#43 Posted by CDWJUSTIN (2078 posts) -

yep because they are coming to your house and forcing you to buy it

#44 Posted by edwardecl (2239 posts) -

So just a port of the PC version?

#45 Posted by Promised_Trini (3637 posts) -

If it's 60$ in the states it'll be 70$ here in Toronto. For a two year old game also.

#46 Posted by Senor_Kami (8447 posts) -

Why does this need to stop? If there's a game you personally don't like, just don't buy it.

I was fortunate enough to get it for free with Xbox Live Gold. I couldn't get past four hours of GTA4, but I played every ounce of Sleeping Dogs. Truly.

#48 Posted by eNT1TY (1126 posts) -

I hope its more than just an up-rez because the game looks decidedly last-gen even maxed on pc. They need to completely overhaul every asset.

#49 Posted by TheEroica (14620 posts) -

Wake me when mass effect trilogy gets the update. That's about the only last gen game I'm interested in seeing a Definitive Edition for atm.

Side note, if these publishers are focusing assets on buffing last gen ganes instead of developing new ip I think it's a bloody shame.

#50 Edited by TheEroica (14620 posts) -

@musicalmac: unfair comparisson... sleeping dogs vs gta4? SD is a competent open world game with pretty decent combat, GTA4 is a steaming pile of twice baked crap.
