Spyro Reignited Trilogy (PS4/XBO)



  • Oh man! There is a little bit of blasphomy going on with this remake. Listen to the monk guy at 1:00 in this video:

  • I hate to derail or be the bearer of bad news, but Activison screwed up.

    I decided to cancel my pre-order, because I can't support shitty practices like this. Well, fuck you Activsion! I'll never buy another game from you ever again. That was the last straw. If anyone wants to still buy the compilation, I won't hold it against you, but I ain't buying something with false advertisement.



  • I juat don't see the big problem with this. Almost ever game this gen has done the same, they just don't explicitly announce it on the packaging.
    Your discs are really nothing more than authetication keys.
    Getting the trilogy, and getting it digital, because holy shit who cares.



  • @el-shmiablo I and many others do. I know other companies are guilty of this (Capcom when it comes to porting games on the Switch), but it's the principle. It's not that hard to put three games on a Blu-ray disc. The fact that Activision is treating everyone like thundering dumb-asses is another point of contention. I shouldn't have to log in to the internet to play a single-player game. I played plenty of games this generation that does not require it, so Activision has no excuses. It's one thing to update a game; it's another thing to lie upfront about physical copies when only one of the games are on the disc, and the others are digital downloads. Negating the point of getting a physical copy.



  • Or two discs. That was normal two generations ago. Why do publishers think this can't be done now?



  • Because it's been done to save money, not because of any technical limitations.

    When it comes to distribution of this magnitude, saving pennies on one unit can add up to hundreds of thousands of dollars.



  • @hazz3r Oh, I'm well aware, which just pisses me off even more.



  • Well, looks like i'm waiting for a digital sale before i'm buying this. Not comfortable with supporting practices like this, but i really want this game.



  • Well damn, the release date has been changed. The new date is now November 13th. We were so close already...

  • I wonder what they've found that's caused the game to need delaying another 2 months. It can't be something insignificant.

    And it can't be them adding the games onto the Master. Without a doubt all the discs have been printed already and are just sitting in warehouses somewhere.



  • @hazz3r
    I'm leaning towards getting all 3 games on the master, or adding something into the final product that was planned as DLC , like playing as Crash in the Spyro games, or some extra level.

    Well they aren't getting my money. I'm not going to be screwed over, not when I've been used to a better standard all my life.



  • @el-shmiablo maybe I don't know the specific cases but with my PS4 physical games I'm able to play all of the content in them without ever needing to connect.

    This not only is setting up a precedent for taking away more ownership of games from the consumers, but it is also another step against video game preservation which has taken a good number of hits already, at least to my mind there's nothing good about it.

    It was already near impossible for me to end up getting this game since I wouldn't give money to Activision, but if anyone has interest in this particular aspects I would say there's more than enough reason to protest and not support the game.

    There's very few examples on consoles as patches don't count. Call of Duty WWII is one game that I recently came across sadly, though it did say on the box (extremely small, as if to hide it though I might add, which just makes it even worse.) I'm not sure on it, but Tony Hawks 5 might be one more.



  • So yeah it's delayed to get all 3 games on the disc... allegedly

  • @dmcmaster Thank you. And thank you developers and Toys For Bob. I'll redo my pre-order later in October. Activision, still go fuck yourselves.



  • This is really promising news and hopefully goes to show the importance to staying vocal, instead of just shrugging things off like some people.



  • I don't buy it yet til we get an official response. I can't help but feel that if it were true, it would have been on the original press release, that would have been easy positive PR.

    Further, the site has changed to reflect the new release date but still has the "Game 2 and 3 require internet download" asterisk.



  • Already a launch trailer.
