Hey Fierce, I think you should put Persona 4 up there. I'm sure the fanboys would jump gleefully in joy, probably at the point of wetting their pants, if you do so.

Fanboys, especially SONY fanboys, are what's wrong with gaming. Not changing my sig till someone proves me wrong.

And it's an enhanced port of an old PS2 game. It's not a brand new exclusive.

a "port" means that it is the same game, only transferred to a different system.
"enhanced port" means that the same game was transferred to a different system, while also receiving touch-ups to things already in the game.

an example of an enhanced port is okami HD.
there are too many changes to the game to consider persona 4: golden an enhanced port. it is a remake.

TC why don't you just admit that you don't want to put P4G on that list because it brings up the average. P4G IS a Vita exclusive because you don't get the additional content in the PS2. If it were multiplatform, then it would be the exact game on the PS2 and there wouldn't be any reason to get the Vita version


It would only bring the average up to 67.7 -- from a D to a D+. If a 64.5 is shameful, bringing it up to a 67.7 isn't helping matters much.

And there are often differences in quality and/or content with multiplatform releases. The Wii version of annual multiplatform sports releases is one obvious example.

But there are enough differences and additions in this release to count it as a remake.

I strongly disagree. There are no fundamental changes to the game. You could make a better case for a game like MGS3:Subsistence being a remake because its new camera fundamentally alters the gameplay of Snake Eater, yet that's rarely considered a remake.

Nope. You're talking Persona 4 for PS2. I'm talking about Persona 4: Golden for Vita. Same concept as Devil Survivor for DS and Devil Survivor Overclocked for 3DS.

/facepalm
Stop putting words in my mouth.
I'm talking about Persona 4: Golden for Vita.
Same concept as Devil Survivor for DS and Devil Survivor Overclocked for 3DS.


...And they both aren't exclusives to their respective systems. Your point?
