So the remaster are being developed by Vicarious Visions, the guys who developed Crash Nitro Kart, the Crash GBA games and of course...Skylanders.
That's interesting, to be honest, I'm not sure what to make of that. Hopefully they'll have some footage of the game to draw some conclusions on.

What makes you most skeptical about it? Something they've done in the past that disappointed you?
Nah, it's just that when you hear stuff like "Remaster," it always seems to turn to be simple HD ports. I remember back when they started out with stuff like God of War HD, ever since then, this whole thing seems to have exploded. There have been good 'uns, don't get me wrong, but there have also been some rubbish 'uns.

To me Rachet and Clank for the PS4 is a good example of a good remaster. Some things are different and incorporate things from the other games but overall it is close to the original, but still feels fresh.

Why are people even saying R&C for PS4 is a remaster? Its a reboot of franchise. Remaster, remake and reboot are not same. Crash Bandicoot will be "remastered from ground-up" which is confusing terminology. It might mean that it will be exactly same like original games without anything new but that they will create new models for everything since its PS1 game and they can't just enhance old stuff like doing with PS2 HD Classics.

Quite so. I recall they reimagined the original game. So it's pretty different. :)

So we have remasters, remakes, and reboots. When will we be getting a remix of a game?

Guys, check out my new video where I talk about the plan that me and another admin of Facebook page we manage thoguht of:
Post suggestions in YT comments what you want to see in PS4 remakes and we will then collect suggestions from others and make open latter to Vicarious Visions asking if it can be added. I think that even though probably not all ideas will be implemented (maybe none?) its nice that company knows what fans want to see.

Hmm, online I keep seeing remastering of the game, not remaking.

Which is it then?

Well during E3, they said that they will do "ground-up remasters" which is indeed a very confusing terminology. I think it will be remake in a sense because its confirmed it will be made from ground-up. But it could mean they do not plan to do any changes and just rebuild models and textures from scrap and still leave the rest of things same. Given the background that was displayed during announcement, I assume thats how it will look visually. Its impossible to remaster PS1 title same way like PS2 titles are remastered considering its much lower resolution and you cannot achieve nice HD look like PS2 HD Classics did. But I hope fan feedback encourages them to add new features too :)

Just change the background to something more relevant to Crash at E3 rather than a shitty looking fangame. Keep the "suggest ideas" text.

The only update the old Crash games need is an upgrade to current-gen graphics. Everything else could remain the same and it would be perfectly wonderful.
