Chattycast 65: Remasters of the Universe

The Chattycast takes a look at game remasters in the wake of the Uncharted collection. 


We're approaching the third year of the current console generation, and remasters from the last generation are still going strong. Between Halo: MCC, Gears of War Ultimate Edition, and this week's launch of Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, publishers are still more than willing to bring back games from only a few years ago with a shiny coat of paint.

This week, the Chattycast tackles remasters. Is it a stopgap measure for slow console releases, a form of advertising, or a way to keep video games in an archival format? What do publishers owe consumers who bought the initial release? Could this primarily console-driven strategy move to PCs, or are they insulated from it? What makes a remaster worth the consumer's time?
