  • Azuardo

    Actually happy because more people need to play this awesome game. But $60 is too much.

    • Budgiecat

      S-E tax

    • Elle

      It will be 30 dollars black friday or by January. Rip off the impatient people and release non artbook version for half price.

      • Azuardo

        heh, yeah, true. In which case, I hope lots of people buy it.

  • The Grim Heaper

    Why? I hope this doesn’t become too popular a trend. Just seems like a waste of time and effort.

    • Impressionnant

      It is THE new popular trend. You better start enjoyin’ buying the same game twice.

      • CerealKiller

        Or could not buy them twice, like normal people and stop raging about it.

        • The Grim Heaper

          Nobody is raging about it, though.

          • Elvick

            You must not get out much then. Plenty of people cry and rage about this stuff.

      • 罪罰


        • Budgiecat

          Nooooooo goddamnit nooooo

          Specifically in FFXIII’s case, If people didn’t to play FFXIII trilogy yet its because they didnt want to lol

          I mean, have you ever played with your poop before?

          • 罪罰

            You can’t stop it.

            • Budgiecat

              well you can’t beat my dance moves

              and yes its physically impossible to stop your poop

    • Elvick

      I hope it continues for all time, just so people can continue to cry about it.

    • Elle

      People have been asking for this since Tomb Raider was announced to get one. Sleeping Dogs looks and runs TERRIBLE on PS3 so people want a better version on console.

  • SegaSaturnSNK

    I’ll wait for it to be 20 bucks. I wasn’t impressed by Tomb Raider’s remaster version, there wasn’t much of a huge difference yet people still rave about it how beautiful it looked.

    • Budgiecat

      Also see: the Last of Us Remastered..

  • Ghost Doge

    I might actually play it this time around!

    • Anime10121

      DO IT! Sleeping Dogs got me back into sandbox games after GTAIV killed them for me!

  • Sirichanh

    I sold my ps3 copy of this. And I regret it so much. This may not be a day one buy for me. But it’s a guaranteed buy from me in the near future.

  • $117141671

    I really liked the game on 360 and I never bought any of the DLC so I might pick this up.

    $60 is a bit much to swallow though, especially with such a crowded fall line-up.

    • SegaSaturnSNK

      Black Friday

  • Anime10121

    Expected after that French Amazon leak a while back! Like Tomb Raider before it, I LOVED the original…still dont see me doubling back though until its under like 20 bucks…

  • shogunknight

    Its a great game but, why? Well those that havent played it should do so, its good. I hope they reduce the price, $60 seems too much

    • Budgiecat

      I would hope they are indeed making a true sequel (triad wars), and maybe this is just extra quick funding for it…

  • Sergio Montecarlo Vile

    So the only thing left is Sony announce the PS4 remaster console!

  • Alkaid

    Got it for PC way back and will buy it for PS4 as soon as I can. This game is beautiful, the story is fun and cool, the characters are great, the fight system is much better than in any other game with similar systems. It’s challanging, atmospheric and you get to eat pork buns lots of ’em.

    For those who haven’t had the chance to play it yet, please buy it. You won’t regret it.
    Oh and the hacking/cracking minigames are really super cool! Loved em, games need more of those!

    Edit: And the DLCs were pretty nice too! Ya can’t go wrong! :D

  • Manny Being Manny

    I just bought it off of Steam for 4 bucks so it seems weird to charge 60 for it now

  • Mikail

    Lol, this remind me of of those Final Fantasy Anthology for PS1, where there once no backward compatibility at all and so much game ported and remastered for PS1 from SNES. Seeing PS4 performance it resembles PS1 rather then PS2. I hope people will not complain much with remastered edition.

  • Nhiroz

    I take it we can expect all of Square Enix’s “Last Gen” games to be re-released as a “Definitive Editions” then? What’s next, Hitman Absolution Definitive Edition?

    • Skerj

      Hitman Absolution’s Definitive Edition is Blood Money.

  • Cry_Zero

    Hopefully theyll bring the kingdom hearts hd remixes to ps4

    • Manny Being Manny

      why don’t people just keep their PS3 if they want to play all of these old games instead of rebuying them?

      • Cry_Zero

        Because i want to use my dualshock 4? Abd because i want to play it in the best version there is? And maybe because i want to support the developers? And maybe because people sold their ps3s to get the ps4? Pick the reason you like the most cause there are lots of them

        • Karysonson

          Let me answer those
          1.You can use a Ds4 on a Ps3 perfectly fine now thanks to an update
          2….It’s a remaster of a game created around 10 years ago. They would have to completely remake the game and textures for what you’re asking.
          3. You can support the developers just fine by buying a regular copy for it’s designated system.
          4.The people who sold there Ps3 and bought into the hype does not fall onto the developers responsibility. If you really wanted these games, then you’ll have to purchase the Ps3, whether that be now or when to price goes down even further.

          • Cry_Zero

            All these games show you that your wrong. So many remastereds and hd collections coming out these days so theres enough hope to get kh on ps4. Nobody asked for ne textures just gimme 1080p and maybe 60fps. And the dualshock cant be used just fine since rumble and sixaxis dont work on ps3 with the ds4. And just for your interest i still have a ps3 and i own kh1.5 hd remix but id still prefer to play them on my ps4…

            • Karysonson

              KH 1.5 and FFX HD are both 1080p on Ps3. you act like the Ps3 can’t do 1080, which it can. And it doesn’t take much power to run a ps2 game at 60 fps.

              • Elvick

                So? Those are PS2 games, and not all run at 30… Tales of Symphonia Collection for instance.

                playing on PS4 is a significantly better experience, one that clearly people who’ve never used one don’t grasp. Love your 2006 tech all you want, but people want to play on newer hardware that’s better to use in 2014.

                And not everyone has already played those games. So… Deal.

                • Karysonson

                  Unless it’s a completely new remake there is no need for it to be on Ps4. It is a game made on 2000 tech. I guess the people who haven’t played those games will have to “deal” as well because I kinda doubt these games will be released on the ps4 any time soon.

                • Karysonson

                  And what is it with so many next gen owners wanting ports and remasters? Was that the reason you shelled out $400+? To play the same games as before?

                  • Elvick

                    The assumption that everyone’s already played the games is so laughably stupid. I wish people who made that assumption could be cast into the void.

              • Cry_Zero

                Then wheres the problem? Therell be a ps4 edition for sure

                • Karysonson

                  I’m saying there’s no need for one then. It will look and perform the exact same.

                  • Cry_Zero

                    DUALSHOCK 4 and i just want to be able to play it on a console which I use more than my ps3

        • crazyhunter

          Ps3 has limited support of the ps4 dualshock.
          The ps3 is the best version there is.
          Support by buying the ps3 version.
          Selling the ps3 was a dumb decision.

          • Cry_Zero

            What are you talking about? Im not saying i want to use my ds4 on my ps3. I still got my ps3 but there are people who arent bill gates children and dont have all the money in the world

        • Karysonson

          So instead of having to rebuy all of those games, why don’t you just rebuy a ps3?

          • Cry_Zero

            Cause when you sell your old system you sell your games too

        • Budgiecat

          people selling their PS3’s to get a PS4 are morons

          • Cry_Zero

            So everyone who doesnt have enough to afford a ps4 and seels what he has to get one is a moron? Whats wrong with you man

            • Karysonson

              Yes. If you know that you’ll want the games you’ve had on that system and the games coming out latter for that system, then it’s a bit redundant to sell something and then want everything ported to a console which is supposed to have “new” experiences. Tbh, no one should be in that big of a rush to get a new console that just launched without any real games.

              • Cry_Zero

                Are you nostradamus or something???? Lots of games were promised this year and almost all of them
                Have been pushed to 2015. who couldve known? And what ur saying is so dumb caude i play kh(before the hd remake) back in 2002 or whenever the fist one came out and thats why i wanted an hd remake. Its nostalgis so how the fuck do you expect anyone to know that theyll be playing or wanti g to play these old games again? Why am i even discussing this with you?

      • Elle

        Because not everyone wants to? Some people don’t like multiple systems and have the space for them? What a stupid question. Everyone has their reasons whether you agree with them or not and if people are willing to rebuy the same game over and over and it makes the devs and pubs money they will do it.

        Anyway I can see KH HD coming to PS4 5-6 months before KH3 is out. Whenever that is.

  • Olejka Petrow

    Seriously want to see Dragon’s dogma ps4 edition. 1080p and 60fps – and take all of my money, i don’t even need a better textures.

    • PrinceHeir

      Yes please!!

      Put all DLCs on disk and you’ll have my money day 1!

      I hope they put out Final Fantasy XIII Trilogy HD as well!

      All DLC’s, 1080p 60FPS, Dual Audio and reversible cover featuring three Lightnings!!

    • $1392518

      Oh god. Spending time to 100% DDDA was my best experience in gaming.

      Still rather them make Dragon’s Dogma 2 first,p or at least have DDps4 as a stepping stone to 2..

    • Budgiecat

      Why not Breath of Fire and Sweet Home PS4 edition

    • RyoonZ

      Now this I can agree with!

  • Tracy


  • Elvick

    Will probably play it now then. :3 Can’t get it right away though. Too crowded.

  • Audie Bakerson

    Given how these have worked out so far, something tells me it still won’t look as good as when I played it… 2 years ago on my PC.

    • Budgiecat

      needs moar congested Chinese population and smog…

  • ShadowFang

    People better frickin’ check it out this time!

    This game deserved to sell way more than 1 million copies. What a fantastic title! Man. This should’ve been a GTA killer – it’s top of the class when it comes to open-world games. It has a much more interesting (and beautiful) setting than your typical “here’s-another-US-city” setting, and tons of POLISHED mechanics.

    Fighting, shooting, platforming/chasing/parkour, driving, etc. – it does all of them well. Good enough that you’re certainly going to look for drug bust encounters just to get in more fights. Meanwhile, that kind of stuff is an afterthought in other games. Other, somehow more successful, games. smh

    People SERIOUSLY better play it now if they haven’t already…

    • Invisbin

      Eggzacklee. I just don’t get how gta is gta

    • $117141671

      “This should’ve been a GTA killer”

      Nothing will ever kill GTA. I remember before GTAV came out and people actually thought Sleeping Dogs would show it up, or that Saints Row 4 would be more profitable.

      Then GTAV made a billion dollars in 3 days.

      • Budgiecat

        Same with Call of Duty

        Just make the best game you can make. Don’t chase a unicorn..

  • Blaz

    I have it on PC, PS3 and PSPlus i don’t need another copy and i bet that the “rebuilt specifically for next-gen consoles” is just the PC on Ultra with the HD Texture Pack which i already have.

    • Guest

      EDIT: Wrong topic.

    • Elle

      Well I didn’t buy it for ps3, ps plus or pc because gta v came out so I will be getting this.

    • Elvick

      People said that’s what Tomb Raider DF was… Which was incorrect. Wait and see dude

  • bloodiOS

    Aw yiss! All my pork buns!

    • Budgiecat

      I loved the game but if its a lazy port I wont bother you getting it for me…

  • Zero

    I’ll be getting it again. I never got a chance to fully complete the game because of the DLC.

    This includes all the DLC for the game, so it’s not the same as picking up the game for cheap, considering you are getting over $80 worth of DLC with it.

    While $60 is a bit high, I think its most certainly worth picking up for those who never got a chance to play the game. I’m getting it because I’d love to play through it again, I want all the DLC, and I want to support the creators so we can hopefully have an even better sequel.

    • bloodiOS

      Exactly! Getting a better version of the game together with $85 worth of DLC (and a 28-page artbook) for only $60 is pretty damn good for first-timers. I’ve already completed the PS3 version when it was added in PS+ Instant Game Collection but I’m still going to pre-order this =D

    • Budgiecat

      You remember that one time when the singer Vivienne came onto you and grabbed your junk and you were forced to say something like ‘nah we shouldn’t be doing this?’

      …Yeah, I want the option now to be able to do it


  • Vayne

    Could launch on the PS Now, or is just something useless?

    • bloodiOS

      Have you ever considered reading what you posted?

  • Dick Mountainjoy

    All these HD re-releases are really making me wish I would have just upgraded my PC.

    • Infinity

      It’s making me wounder if this gen is going to be all about “Remasters, Definitive, and HD remakes”, it’s making glad that I didn’t buy next gen consoles.

      • Dick Mountainjoy

        So how long until “Deus Ex: Human Revolution: Augmented Edition: Director’s cut: Definitive Edition”?

        • Infinity

          I would say once we get word of the next game in the series. I know one things for sure, if this keeps up I’ll be holding off games for a long time to come, until a definitive edition or Remastered Edition rolls out.

          • Elle

            You willing to wait 6-7 years? Good luck.

            • Infinity

              What makes you think better editions of games will hit the shelves in 6-7 years. The Last of Us only took one year, Sleeping Dogs two years, Tomb Raider one year. With the way theses better editions of games are coming out the way they are I don’t think you will have to wait 6-7 years for them.

        • Skerj

          Too bad they wouldn’t give us a rebuilt edition of the first game.

          • Dick Mountainjoy

            Well luckily DX1 can run on a toaster, and stuff like New Vision updates it fairly nicely.

    • Jason

      Thats pretty much what I did, and I don’t regret it. lmao

  • tokyobassist

    I literally just finished this about a month ago.

  • Zuhri69

    Okay, I love Sleeping Dogs, but why?!!

  • Guy Incognito

    What’s next a next gen rerelease of *hit but pretty obscure game here*

  • Martian Wong

    When will this next gen hd re-release coming to an end? I want new game instead of the same game in better graphic. We already got, Tomb Raider, The Last of US, GTA V and now Sleeping Dogs is joining the list. I hope the quick cash grab will end soon.
