A wrinkle with replays
Posted 11 June 2011 - 02:05 PM
A lot of the games I'm looking at would have great collections Kingdom Hearts, Final Fantasy, Onimusha. I know I would love the playing but don't want that "Oh Man" if it gets announed to have an HD remake in the future.
The many depressing trials of a game hoarder. Final Fantasy XII has been calling me for awhile. HD fear or not, that may end up going into my PS3 sooner rather then later

My goal for 2012 was to fund my gaming habit through reward sites which still continues on into 2013. You can read about my "journey" here.

My PS2 collection has dwindled down to nothing and apart from FFX, Resident Evil 4, and the Xenosaga games, I really don't have too much of a want to play any of them. They slowly get sold/traded/or just given away.

Why should I play the old version now if they are going to have a "superior" version shortly.
Then, once I get the new version I have to make choices that go against my Hoarder/Collector nature.
For instance - God of War collection - Do I then ditch off 1 and 2 and just keep the new set.
Same thing for the GoW Origins collection coming out. POP, Sly Cooper, etc.
My older system backlog is being replaced by the same games in new gen format.

I've already sold Resident Evil 4 and Code Veronia becasue the HD versions are coming out on PSN and XBLA. Same with Shadow of the Colossus and Splinter Cells (since thsoe are both confirmed HD Collections)

Of course, it'd be nice if Sony hadn't removed backwards compatibility from the PS3. *grumble*
Rumor has it that Ubisoft is going to release the Prince of Persia Sands of Time trilogy this side of the atlantic, hurrah! Don't know why they only released it in the EU and not North America. I hate Warrior Within, but SoT and TT were quite fun.
EDIT: Oh yeah! I'm both frustrated and happy that the PSP GoW games are coming to the PS3 - mostly happy because they'll get real controller support (yay rumble and dual analog sticks!), but a little frustrated because I had been looking forward to buying Ghost of Sparta, but now I have no reason to buy it when a superior version is going to come out.

Well, good to know I won't need to import it. Of course, I still need to get a PS3 first. I'm waiting as long as I can for a price drop and significant update to the model. I know a minor model update is going to replace existing stock, but I want to see if something more significant happens. I bought a PS2 4 years ago, and I loved how refined the hardware had become - but especially how cheap the used games were at Gamestop!

It isn't just HD, it's also improved textures (higher-resolution) and/or meshes, and sometimes new content as well. There's also the convenience factor - 1 disc instead of multiple discs. For instance, I read that the ICO/SotC will have higher-res textures. And given how SotC chugged along on the PS2, I'm hoping that the devs also smoothed out the framerate given the PS3's beefier hardware.
What's HD? :rofl:If I were you I'd just play what you have and not worry about upgrading everything to ride the front of the tech wave.
