That's the price it should be. They should have remastered all 3 games.

agreed, if they can do an anthology for Halo, they could have done a collection for GoW too

Just traded this in a week or so ago at EB, and I got $16.50 (towards a pre-order though)
Not bad if you want to play it, best it, trade it. Would cost you close to nothing.

Looks like it's down to $19.99 at Bestbuy already, so minimal PM opportunity.

I saw it for 19.99 at EB too. I got the game with my XB1 but don't enjoy it too much

Have it but have not started playing yet. Comes with 1 remastered, others are no longer included. I believe it was a special that is already expired for other gears games.

That'd be unrealistic given the work involved to remaster the game at the level they did.

The game came out initially with all the other games backwards compatible. But that promo has expired sadly.

I was interested in the game from a far ( having never played gears), but the game looks uninteresting to me and I would have possibly considered it had it been the whole collection available for the xbox one.

All 3 uncharted games were remastered for ps4, come on 1 disk. I don't see any reason why it was not realistic. Moreover, why only 1 game is on disk as opposed to 3.

This isn't just an up-rezzed version of Gears. According to this long Polygon article, they basically recreated a lot of the assets in Gears 1, including the cutscenes: http://www.polygon.com/2015/7/28/900569 ... ent-future.

They also added a previously unreleased (on console) chapter in the game, although I didn't think it was a very compelling addition.

The way I see it, the Coalition used the Ultimate Edition as a way to practice creating a Gears of War game in anticipation for Gears 4

This was borderline remake. They re-did the assets as oppose to just increasing the resolution/framerate as they did with uncharted. The screen shots of the previous game vs this current edition are not nearly the same game.

Uncharted was just making the game run at a higher resolution and higher framerate for the most part. They may have had better lighting and major characters may have had improved models.

But I agree, that I wish this was the full collection as oppose to just one game.

+1

This is tempting, but I just bought the Halo Masterchief Collection for 15 bucks which offers WAY more value for money.

Will wait for a 10 dollar price point on this GoW remaster, I'm sure it's coming soon.
