Q Entertainment Considering Rez HD For The PSN
If you think the pic here is just plain crazy and you don't recognize it, you missed out on the original zany goodness that was Rez on the PS2.
Since then, it has been resurrected with brilliant high-definition visuals for the Xbox 360 on the Live Arcade but it has yet to release on the PlayStation Network. Developer Q Entertainment quite simply wants to know if you'd buy Rez with revamped visuals on the PSN; they say they're looking into the possibility at their Twitter page. They say they're not into doing things for no profit and the latest message reads:
"What would a game like Rez HD sell for on PSN? $15? This is no indication that it's happening, but we're researching if its feasible."
This is one of those psychedelic games that kinda tweaked the brain a bit but ended up being boatloads of fun. Re-issuing older games with overhauled graphics has proven to be a popular pastime for some developers in this generation and sometimes, it pays off. But Q Entertainment isn't exactly EA; they can't be doing this just 'cuz they feel like being nice. Their research has to prove that enough people would go for the purchase. If you wish to make your voice heard, head over to Joystiq and vote.
