I thought Mario was going to be all the rage, but then Sony ended up showcasing just exactly as to why the PS4 continues to dominate. Also was nice of them to demonstrate as to what a "remake" actually is... With a really great price-tag to boot.

By remaking a PS2 game?

Mario is all the rage. This also looks great. Seems a bit weird to compare the two.

For me, this is still too high priced for this game's third outing (as good as it is)

Nice, stll showing as £50 at Amazon

Amazing game had it on ps2 and ps3. It's a deal because it's price compared to everywhere else but to be honest it should be no more then £35 it's a game remastered

I can see this going down to £25 min at release, if not just wait a week and buy it for £15-£20 off someone who completed in 2 days, I understand it's a remake but it's not enough to justify £35 for me atleast

US RRP is $39.99. At best this is UK RRP and may even be higher. Not a deal

I'll get this but not at this price, be 15 max before I bite.

It's £29.99 on the PSN Store.

At least they did remake something not offering a last gen game on a current gen console as a BC brand game...

Mario is sitting at 97% on metacritic and has sold 2M copies in 3 days.

Did you even see the £270 Switch "deal" that got something silly like 700 degrees the other day... The comments section for that deal were... interesting. So many Nintendo fans coming out of the woodwork to defend what was ultimately a £10 "price-cut".

Not really... Mario Kart 8, with its whizz bang 60fps Wii U XBox 360-level tech "remaster" effort, still sells for around £40 on Switch, yet still gets the "Oh My God... IT'S SUCH A DEAL!!!!" comment from pretty much everyone who wants to legitimate their £300 paper-weight.

Also, did you even see any of the other games which Sony showcased at their Paris Games Week event last night? I thought this year's Black Friday was where it was at, but might just end up waiting for next year. Soooo many good games. Yet soooo little time.

SotC is NOT a "remaster". It's a full on "remake".

Aren't you basically just doing the exact opposite by typing out that essay?

Lucky for you... I only ever owned it for PS2. And even if it was eventually re-released for PS3, which I have (via PS+), the PS4 version looks like something else entirely.

Just think of it like the Citizen Cane of videogames. First you saw it in Black and White. Then you bought it on VHS. Now, it's getting re-released in Full Colour 4K.

Speaking of 4K...

Is there anything more pathetic than fanboys for any console? Even sadder is that they’re likely to be grown adults making these comments too It’s the gaming equivalent of saying “my dad is bigger than your dad”.

I see what you're getting at but that's a terrible example. Citizen Kane in colour? I don't think fans would want that.
And 'looks like something else entirely'? Is it not still ride horse to big guy, climb up, find weak spot, kill. Rinse and repeat?
As I've said, its a good game but let's not romanticise it and put it on a pedestal.

Nah.
The only thing in this thread deserving of that so far is Mario.

This place is worse than /v/

I was still planning to buy the ps3 version and then they announced this! Really wanted to play it in 3d for some reason

Brilliant game on the PS2... good game on the PS3 (nice to play it in HD)
I've bought it twice but not again, especially at this price, this should be £25 max.

Something tells me you're not a fan of the switch...

But in terms of calling it a remake, I guess it just about gets away with that. The story, collossi and gameplay remains the same, but the textures have been redesigned. But by these standards, you could say Kingdom Hearts 1.5 is a remake, since they lost all the assets and basically had to make the game from scratch again.

It's still not worth £35, remastered games are built on top of the original game, they have an old foundation/ engine, you can polish it as much as you want but it will never be as good as a new release like horizon zero dawn which was built from the ground up to be played on the PS4

I did, I watched the entire conference live. Pretty much everything looked great apart from the VR stuff. But I'm not really sure how that effects the quality of Mario? Because I own all current consoles and a gaming pc, so usually spend my time playing games on them rather than moaning on a deal site about games I can't play or don't like.

You really seem to hate the Switch. As for not turning it on in 7 months, yeah I've played my PS4 more in that time, but I've still put in plenty of hours playing Zelda, Mario Kart, Mario and Rabbids and now Mario Odyssey. If you have no interest in it that's fine, but your posts on here really come across as bitter and quite sad.

Why would you use that ridiculous American expression as a response to someone stating the obvious about something that is clearly there for all to see?

I don't think anyone begrudges hot deals going hot when they are genuinely hot but a tenner off a 280 quid item is not hot and thus not worthy of anything close to them numbers, just the usual skewed score courtesy of the pro Nintendo lobby who reside in this parish.

How many other 'deals' consisting of a paltry 3.5% below the RRP would attract that sort of bargain hysteria heat on here?

Troll deal

if this keeps up we're gonna need a purge.

Wait for it to drop. Rebuilt/rehashed/remade its about £10 too much atm.

Its a remake not remaster..
If Final Fantasy 7 remake was on here at £35, lt would be like a volcano. 😁

Digital version is £29.99, which suggests this is £5 above RRP

I never played it on ps2, tried playing it on ps3 but just felt too dated for me too actually enjoy.

I loved the last guardian so really looking forward to this.

I played through the PS3 version in 2015 whilst I was smoking some sort of herb. I had a French old east coast hip hop Tunein radio station playing through my stereo with my phone connected. I can honestly say it was one of the best experiences of my life. However it is abit cheeky of them to remake this but I bet it is ace. And also as good as that experience was, smoking any kind of herb is bad for you in the long run, so don't do it or atleast do it rarely.
