  1. Why wouldn’t it run fine on the Playstation 4&5 as is? The games aren’t that much improved visually from the originals.

  2. I’d flip a coin on it being something that someone ‘fixed’ that they later realized needed to stay ‘broken’ in order to work with the bass-ackwards APIs that Sony uses…

  3. Wow!

    How old… scratch that… how ancient is this game again?

    I mean, you’d have to be really stupid to not admit that this diluted remake wasn’t nothing more than a few weekends, at best, bored nothing to do project but releasing a game with a day-1 patch on such an old title, definitely says that this game still has the exact same bug issues from the OG version over 10-years-ago.

    Sheesh!

    It’s the first 3 ME games, the first one got the most updates, doing some more optimisations should not realy be an issue, they might be trying to avoid a cyberpunk like launch (highly unlikely the games would be that buggy) or maybe they are just having issues with the PS4 & PS5 port as the original was an xbox 360 exclusive which was ported in 2012 to the PS

    Old enough that the PS4 wasn’t on the development plate?

    Remember that Sony broke forward compatibility out of sheer laziness, meaning that the dev team is having to refix all of the awkwardness that is required to get things running on any specific Sony console.

    Laugh at me all you like, I’ll be happily buying it day 1. The games are already a masterpiece so even if this is nothing more than a texture refresh it’ll be worth every penny to me.
