@Octane Ico or the Medevil game that was announced late last year.

We are now in a world of people being offended for other people who they think should be offended, who arent offended.

There is no longer a good time to release a game. There are only less s**t times to release a game

@JohnnyShoulder Plausible. Although I'm not sure if ICO is the game ''millions'' of fans are anticipating. I'll take an ICO remake, I've never played the game.

@Octane Demon Souls remake. Sony own the IP & pretty much every souls fan under the sun has been asking for it.

Also the servers are conveniently closing down at the end of the month.
Maybe that's because a new game is coming... .

E3 reveal. You heard it here first, folks.

@Fight_Teza_Fight Can that game be considered a classic though? We got it as early as last gen. It's kinda like how people still don't consider last gen to be retro yet, so I doubt they would remake Demon's Souls based on their wording.

I personally believe we will be seeing another PS1 or PS2 game. Kinda hard to say which one though.

@Fight_Teza_Fight @KratosMD It doesn't have to be a Sony IP though. Bluepoint also ported Titanfall to the Xbox 360, and they did the Metal Gear Solid Collection on PS3 and 360.

@KratosMD I’d consider it a classic. 8 years old & gave birth to a genre. Probably wishful thinking. I’m a big Souls fan, but I missed out on this game.

@Octane I consider them first party in all but name- like Insomniac.
They might go & do their own thing every once in a while, but they know where their bread is buttered .

@Octane I think a Metal Gear Solid 4 remaster could be very big.

However, if they're working with EA (Titanfall), I think Mass Effect would be the most obvious one.

@Kidfried Definitely would be interesting to see a Mass Effect remake for PS4 since the first game never came to PlayStation. After Andromeda’s underperformance I fear it would not be as well received though. I would be on board with it though.
In looking back at PS2 classics, I wonder if a remake of Prince of Persia would ever be considered. The franchise seems to have died but I would be curious to see if the gameplay holds up to current gen standards.

The early bird gets the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.

@Th3solution I get what you're saying about Mass Effect... that (star)ship might have sailed, for now.

I'd love Prince of Persia, but with Assassin's Creed being in Egypt already, I feel like now wouldn't be the right time.

Also: please Ubisoft, hire some excellent writers, before doing anything with that franchise again!

@KratosMD I consider the PS3 and XB360 as 'retro' consoles now. Neither console is still in production and both are over 10yrs old in terms of technology. Games like Dead Space, Bioshock, Uncharted etc are considered 'classics' so why can't Demon Souls? I admit Demon Souls is my type of game but its still a 'classic' of its genre. Its not just early PS3/XB360 titles either that are 'classics' - Red Dead Redemption is a 'classic' too. I know a lot of classics can be played on a current console via BC with XB1 but you still need a discontinued 10yr old console to play these - whether Physical or Virtual (as the XB1 uses).

I also think you can have 'Classic' games on current hardware too. The Witcher 3 for example is a 'classic' - whether it can be played on current hardware or not. Its redefined what open world action RPG's should aspire too and will be remembered for years to come. Classics don't have to be over 10yrs old to be 'classic' - especially not in gaming as it moves fast. A year is a long time in gaming...

@Th3solution Mass Effect certainly did come to the PS3!! It was ported by Edge of Reality and featured some lighting and visual effect improvements. It may have come late to the PS3 (I think it was 2012) and released as part of a ME trilogy but it certainly did come to PS3...

Anyone else with a Pro and VR having major issues with the beta FW 5.50? It's not really going into standby properly.. the drive keeps spinning and the orange light pulses fairly quickly. My PSVR breakout box is also not going into standby.

I'm going to try downgrading back to official after work. I was just curious if this was common or if I'm just unlucky.

@BAMozzy Oh, yeah, you’re right! I forgot they released it with the trilogy pack. I just never bought that since I had already bought ME2 and ME 3 separately. Good catch.

@BAMozzy I could never consider PS3 or Xbox 360 as retro consoles that just feels wrong. For me retro is anything N64/PSone and back. PS2 and up just seems wrong to call retro but that's my opinion of course. I mean I don't see a 2005 Chevrolet Silverado and say OMG that's retro.

@Tasuki Each to their own of course but as I said, I feel gaming moves on so much more than cars for example and the fact that the PS3/XB360 are no longer in production, that makes them Retro to me. They were 'retro' before MS/Sony decided to stop making them when they stopped being the lead console or able to play the latest games but I will accept that they became 'retro' when Sony and MS discontinued production. I felt the same way with the N64 when the Game Cube released, the same way about the WiiU now the Switch is out etc. When there is a significant generational leap over the predecessor as there is with consoles, the old become 'Retro' for me. When 16bit replaced 8bit, I didn't wait until 32/64bit or 128bit era until 8bit became retro - it was almost instantaneous. I look at PS3/XB360 games as 'retro' - even in their visual' presentation. The obviously lower polygon counts affecting everything from faces, hair, clothing even environmental things like trees etc too.

There is a massive difference between these two images of Nathan Drake. Look at the fabric too. I am sure I don't need to tell you how much of a generational leap the realistic 'visuals' have come. Faces are a long way from the low polygonal N64 texture wrap that at the time seemed incredible - Goldeneye for example looked amazing and so 'lifelike' (at the time and at least you could 'recognise' the actors faces).

Even those games that have been 'remastered' (not remade), look 'last gen' compared to games built specifically for this gen. Fallout 4 doesn't look a significant step up - more colours maybe but its still looks like a remaster of a last gen game - maybe it was as the devs may well have began work on it for last gen or used the last game as a 'template'. Its not so easy with more 'cartoon' graphics but you can't deny that the realism in modern games - especially water, people, clothing etc is a big step up.

Ok so its not as 'retro' as PS2 era and certainly not as 'retro' as the 32/64, 16 or even 8bit eras but as far as I am concerned, with each new generation that offers a 'significant' step up - not just in terms of visuals, but in virtually all areas, that then makes the older console 'retro'. Again that doesn't mean that games can't be 'classic' unless on a retro console - the point I was making more. I consider games like the Witcher 3 as a 'modern day classic' but its still a classic. CoD4 is considered a Classic too as is more recent games like BioShock, Dead Space, MW2, Red Dead Redemption etc.

Retro, by definition, is involving, relating to, or reminiscent of an earlier time: denoting something associated with or revived from the past:

As the PS3 and XB360 are 'discontinued', they are both 'Retro' by definition. As games also have 'short' life, its easier for them to become 'classics' on current hardware. As such its also easier (at least for me) to see the older generations as 'retro' too because the software is more dated. I agree its not as 'retro' as the PS1 era or even PS2 era but its still a retro console

It's almost certainly not the classic that Bluepoint is working on, but I'd love if it was a remaster or a ground up remake of Killzone 2 for PS4. Still my favorite FPS from last gen and aside from Halo: Reach there hasn't been an FPS since that I enjoyed as much. KZ 3 was good, not great, Shadow Fall was decent at best and the 343 Halos have disappointed me.
