How Much You’ll Spend on Remasters vs. How Much The Original Costs Now

Comparing the costs.

This generation has seen a bunch of the most popular games from last generation get their visuals polished, additional content packaged in (in some cases), and generally get a bit of a dust off before being re-released on the newest systems.

This is a great means of getting newcomers who maybe didn’t own one of the consoles from last gen to experience some of the best around, but for those who have access to these original platforms, there is always the option to go and experience them as they were a few years back. What’s more, the cost could be a hell of a lot cheaper. To put this point to the test, we’ve taken a bunch of games that saw remasters on PS4 and Xbox One and compared their prices to their last-gen counterparts.
