EA has no Interest in HD remakes: My Thoughts

Hey Guys, this has to be one of the most funniest things that I have read all year. What exactly makes this so funny? The irony.

If you want to check out the article for yourself, check it out here on IGN. I'll be using the most hilarious quotes or at least I find them pretty hilarious.

EA COO Peter Moore revealed he isn't fond of HD remaster of old video games as he states, "It feels like pushing stuff out because you’ve run out of ideas".

If you aren't laughing at this or even feel the slightest bit of disgust, then you are officially an EA fanboy. Want to know why this is so hilarious? This is coming from the same company that released Battlefield 4 way too early with game-breaking bugs and glitches. May I remind you of the cops-and-robbers re-skin that is Battlefield Hardline?

Seriously, Battlefield Hardline felt more like an afterthought rather than a full retail game. This game was pushed out because EA felt like their wallets weren't big enough.

If you thought the first quote was hilarious, you should read this one. "I don’t know where we find the time to do remakes...We’re a company that just likes to push forward" (Moore).

If you had the time to finish Battlefield Hardline as well as Star Wars Battlefront, then how do you not have the time to finish an HD Remake? Unless, they actually become a "new" game or have additional content!

This is coming from the company that overcharges for DLC as well as having $70 "Deluxe" Edition for their games. $50 for a season pass? Please, next joke.

Most HD remakes actually are more than just remakes. Tomb Raider, Metro Redux, and Gears of War: Ultimate Edition are games that come to mind that are very different from their original state especially Gears of War. It's not "running out of ideas". It's arguable, but if developers actually take the time to make it better than the original then it's not "running out of ideas".

I don't even think EA is aware of their faults. Remember when they had online passes? That was the only thing in recent memory that they took the time to fix. Battlefield 4 is a different case scenario as it took EA about 4 years to get rid of their online passes.

Will we ever see a Mass Effect Remake? Probably not. However, I'm pretty sure they will do HD remakes if they see a trend that HD remakes actually sell well. We'll see if they truly are a company that "just likes to push forward".
Till Next Time!!
