What does it mean when one of the games I’m most looking forward to is actually a re-release of an eight year-old and sadly overlooked title? Perhaps it just makes me unique or more than likely a little bit strange. If that’s the case then I’m most definitely not alone, if the current HD ports of the God of War and Ico/Shadow of the Colossus (to name just a few) are anything to go by. It’s a simple fact that re-releases sell, and it didn’t take long for games companies to realise that backwards compatibility might not be the way to go; it may be great for the consumer, but why accommodate it when making a quick buck from releasing old games makes such perfect business sense?
