Wait, so the GC and ps2 are from the same generation, with comparable graphics. If anything the GC looks better.... you are defending ps2 HD releases, but saying GC HD releases wouldn't be a good idea.. and you wonder why people 'pick' on you. Incredible, absolutely stunning logic there Flores. Care to explain how Okami is a great HD remake for a ps3 exclusive yet Wind Waker HD would be a bad idea, despite them coming from the exact same generation?

IMHO, great games age like wine. No matter how old Chrono Trigger gets, it still is a superb game.

gameplay, production, acting, scenery, level design back then was a joke, I agree

Yes, yes it was. Especially since you can tell they want to say "You can't shine shit" but aren't allowed, so they use a lot of oblique analogies.

Ps2 games are one gen back from the PS3. GC games are 2 gens back from the WiiU.

I think PS2 HD releases on the Orbis would be a terrible idea as well

So? How is God of War, Ico, Okami worthy of HD remakes and Wind Waker, Sunshine, Prime are not? They are all from the same generation. Seriously (literally serious) this is exactly why people give you are a hard time. Making up arbitrary paramters to make Sony 'right' and everybody else 'wrong' makes you look like a moron. You are better than this.

For the record, when the ps4 is released, HD remakes of ps2 games will still be great games worth playing. I will still be playing Okami for years to come.

I hope they call it Super Okami HD on the PS4.

I would love to see an HD remake of Windwaker. I wonder if you could get that game to run on the 3DS even.

Why are we even fighting over HD ports?

**sigh** you just don't get it, do you? The WiiU is supposed to be a next gen console, and by porting GC games to HD they would be taking games from two gens back.
I havent seen a single Playstation game HD remaster on the PS3

I would love to see some ps1 classics remade with enhanced graphics. I downloaded FF II (IV Japan) Remake on the PSP, that was more than 2 generations old, worth every penny.

It's just pointless, because an HD port IS a multiplat.

Another interesting article:

"The thing that finally convinced me that a touchscreen controller is a good idea for a console is not the off-screen play in New Super Mario Bros. U or the variety of weird and clever control schemes in Nintendo Land, though both are nice.

It's the TV remote.

The Wii U GamePad features built-in universal remote functionality, allowing players to use the touchscreen to turn their TVs on and off, change channels, switch between various inputs, and control volume. It works with cable boxes as well. A "TV" button on the GamePad brings up the TV controls at any time.

Okay, maybe that doesn't seem like a big deal. But it's an improvement in basic usability that accomplishes what every game company wants to do with a system: remove every possible barrier to its use, no matter how insignificant. If I want to play Nintendo Land, the only thing I have to pick up is the WiiPad: I can turn the TV on, switch over to the right HDMI input, turn the system on, and play the game with a single device.

People may not even realize how accustomed they become to this kind of convenience, until they go back to something that doesn't offer it. In the next console generation, we'll look at a controller that can't turn on a TV like we look at a controller that doesn't have a console power button now. I don't think it's a feature that will sell Wii U systems, necessarily, but even this tiny tweak is going to change how console controllers function from now on.

Man I wish Nintendo would just innovating already.

My thoughts on this thread. Let's wait until the Wii U has been out for a year and revisit. I think the Wii U will introduce some nice features that may be deemed revolutionary, but will more likely will be a nice step in the right direction. Remember how the rumble pack for the n64 introduced rumbling response in gaming, leading to the dualshock for ps2, etc. It's small steps like that (that we take for granted now) that have made gaming more enjoyable. In conclusion......

I like turtles
