Gamer’s can’t wait to play GTA 5 for Xbox One and PS4, and others yearn for BioShock Infinite on the PS4 but there’s nothing concrete yet. Sony is stepping up and bringing an incredibly popular game to the PS4, but there are many more PS3 and Xbox 360 games that need an upgrade to the new generation of consoles, even if gamers need to buy them again.
Microsoft’s Xbox One and Sony’s PS4 living room consoles are in a league of their own. They’re really the first two completely new consoles to arrive after the proliferation of cheap high-speed internet access and apps stores that can instantly let users add to their device’s capabilities. Of course, them being gaming consoles, their updated internals make them great for anyone in search of an amazing looking game.
It’s that last bit that’s becoming more interesting. Gone are the days when companies simply made games, released them to users and moved on to a different game. Now developers try to create properties that they can continually make money from. It’s easy to see why, making blockbuster games is expensive. Enter the video game HD remake phenomenon that’s currently sweeping both consoles. Game developers have realized that they can make a high-definition version of the same game they’ve released before and target a whole new audience who didn’t get to play it the first time.
Sony’s recent announcement that they’d introduce a new version of The Last of Us complete with downloadable content for the PS4 got us at GottaBeMobile thinking about what other games should be remade and updated for the new generation of consoles.
