I don't know. On one hand I kinda hate the idea of rereleasing the same old games on new systems, but there's also a part of me that's a little sad at certain things like Horde mode in Gears 2/3 not existing at some point in the future for everyone to play. Very few series deserve this treatment, but if done correctly like the Halo set seems to be, it could be ok.
Gears, Mass Effect and Uncharted seem like good choices to get this treatment. I'd put money on on a Gears collection happening close the the new game coming out.
Yes, but so far only Mass Effect comes to mind. I wouldn't mind an updated version of all three games on a new console.
Maybe other publishers are having the same problem with this that Naughty Dog did with Last of us. Not sure which show it was on, but one of the E3 podcasts had a guy from ND on, and he talked about how they ran into all new sets of problems translating something that used to run in a single thread(?) to a multi-thread machine.
There weren't a whole lot of totally worthwhile franchises last gen. There's Halo, there's Gears (might be cool to get some of the control upgrades in Gears 1), there's Uncharted, there's Mass Effect. I feel like there are relatively few people who actually care about the entirety of the other franchises that came out, like Killzone & Resistance. I guess an HD upgrade of those would be interesting but probably wouldn't be a huge seller for Sony.
As someone who has never owned a Playstation before this, some sort of Resistance, Uncharted, Killzone and God of War collection would be great! Though I suspect that 3 of those 4 franchises will be brought out to the back and shot, so it's probably not going to happen.
I fully expect an Uncharted 1,2,3 + Golden Abyss collection in the Summer of 2015.
