    I’m a bit worried that they haven’t shown it in action here. It’s an awesome trailer, but since that’s all live action I’m concerned they’re hiding the actual gameplay footage for a reason.

  • bloodiOS

    No mentioning of targeting 60fps…

    • Peacenutman

      Yeah, I thought I was the only one. I guess this game will be in 30-40 FPS.

      • bloodiOS

        If we’re lucky… Remember that United Front Games’ latest works is the Xbox One port of Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition and it was capped at 30fps (and somehow managed to dip below that.) I’m hoping that for this project, if they are not going to target 60fps on the PS4, the performance should at least holds a constant 30fps.

    What a stupid trailer.

    This game is amazing, and gorgeous, but you know what’s a dumb thing to use to try to sell your ‘Remastered’ port? Live action footage that isn’t gameplay. smh

  • Budgiecat

    omg that trailer looked so photo realistic!

    • tokyobassist

      If you have a PC that can handle it, you can play this now with the HD Texture Pack.

    this was a fun game, I wont be double dipping but to anyone who hasn’t played it its a good time. Fighting system was a lot of fun.

    *awarded to original release

    I will be just waiting for the sequel for Sleeping Dogs. Sick and tired of these remastered ports recently.

    • Zackasaur

      No reason to be sick and tired. They don’t take resources away from new games.

      In fact, the revenue and increased fanbase makes for better sequels. If you want Sleeping Dogs 2, then you should be thrilled by this, even if you aren’t buying it.

      I don’t really care much about Sleeping Dogs, but I do like seeing Square Enix succeed… So there is that.

      Myself, I really appreciated Tomb Raider Definitive Edition and especially The Last of Us Remastered. More fans and more money going into both studios’ new games! c:

      • EspadaKiller

        Not sure about you but seeing remastered ports on the PS4 and Xbone everywhere so gaming companies can earn some quick cash makes me sick and tired. I don’t want to replay games that are out just recently in these few years. Did I buy my PS4 just to see these remastered ports everywhere instead of new games? No. So yeah, I have a valid reason to be sick and tired of remastered games, especially for last gen games.

        And FYI, a sequel to Sleeping Dogs is already in development, also I’m not entirely sure that the money from the remastered port will be going into the development cost for the sequel though.

        And since it’s S-E, I’m sure that by releasing remastered ports they’re just wanting to earn some quick cash.

          But remastered ports are very easy to make and don’t take away many resources if any from other games in development. If you don’t want to play them again, then there isn’t anything wrong with that.

          Maybe some people never got a chance to play Sleeping Dogs, The Last of Us, Tomb Raider, etc. last gen, and now they have a chance to do so with the game looking better and a bunch of extras included.

          The fact that you are “sick and tired” of them sounds like complaining just for the sake of complaining.

          • EspadaKiller

            Heh, so it’s fine for you if half of PS4 and Xbone’s game library are remastered games from the PS3 and 360? If this is the trend for this generation then I would be very disappointed. Even more disappointed when people don’t find it wrong, just like how DLCs are the norm now.

            • Articuno76

              You have a choice between having absolutely nothing to play while new-gen super projects lumber towards completion, or having remasters and ports.

              I dunno about you but I’d prefer to have the wait filled with something. And TBH I think the publishers realise they can’t put nothing out for extended periods of time.

        • tokyobassist

          Don’t bother explaining yourself on this internet. You’ll just be called a whiner.

          Edit: Well that was quick.

  • Anime10121

    Love how the trailer for a remaster showed NO ACTUAL GAMEPLAY, and was entirely live action :/

    I mean, seriously :/

  • vishmarx

    october ?
    is this a joke?
    oh well
    i guess itll come down to $60gta v vs $30 Sleeping dogs in december.

  • vishmarx

    luminous engine 2.0 folks
    seriously tho,
    whats the point of this trailer?

  • tokyobassist

    Great game but too bad all my dogs slept on it and will continue to do so. The game already peaked in sales with very little competition at the time of the original release. With GTA V being the bigger name, I can see this one bombing again despite the lack of new compelling content on the new systems.

  • LustEnvy

    If I didn’t already run through this on Steam and PS3, I would’ve bought it. It is the ONLY GTA style game I liked. I don’t even like GTA. Sleeping Dogs was fantastic.

    • Articuno76

      From what I’ve played of the game I have to agree. Many open-world games suffer from being buggy or having so many game mechanics that everything feels diluted. Not Sleeping Dogs.

      I’ve not gotten past the first few hours of the game though, and given that playing on the PS4 is much quieter than my PC I’d rather play on the PS4.
