    The dislikes amount on the video alone says a lot about how people feel for this "definitve" ****. This coupled with the announcement that Triad Wars (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jQn4OvRrK0A) instead of being a true Sleeping Dogs sequel, will actually be some sort of MMO, really crushed every sympathy for this franchise.

    What a disappointment...seriosusly, what the **** were they thinking? :3eyes:

    Even so, I never once got bored while playing Sleeping Dogs. GTAV... got bored constantly.

    Tbf, SD was more condensed than GTA and gtas roots are in the days of messing around in a sandbox type gameplay. SD to me is more of a thirdperson corridor beat'em up than an open-world game.

    Hell, NFS underground 2 felt more open world than SD imo.

    I've been on this forum since 1200pm today and its now 0130am. This is what happens when I have time of from stuff.

    So will current Sleeping Dogs users get another HD texture pack or is this another stand alone wannabe game?


    EDIT:
    Judging by those screens lighting still looks bland and dated..

    Imo this is redic to consider if you already have the PC version. I'm sure there will be a ton of comparisons showing how little difference there is between the two. That being said SD is a really cool game and if you're even a little interested, I would grab it, even if it's the old version (which goes on sale CONSTANTLY).

    there's gameplay vids on youtube, the city looks great with all the fog, and there's loads of it.
    i'm wondering it it'll be compute based as i'd prolly get it then.

    They need loads of it to cover up how awful it looks.

    This is a simple fail especially for a PC release when the original PC version already had a HD Texture pack.

    Just release this version on consoles with the HD texture pack from the original PC version and leave us PC gamers alone. This is one game that we do not need.

    I will be surprised to see if they stop selling the original version on STEAM so they can warrant charging £45 for this "remastered version".

    you can get it for £10 of steam, not bad.
    i couldn't play original cause of baked graphics and wonky cotrols so yeah, and you have no idea how it looks even if you seen youtube vids.

    No I don't know how it looks, youtube compression is a bitch I agree but honestly... why would a company release a PR video for a game and have it look that bad... I could see literally no difference between that and the original version?

    If they really wanted to show the difference then release a RAW uncompressed video for download so people can see for themselves the true quality.

    It's still bad man, I mean I got the game on release then all the DLC troughout the years, some at different steam sales. Either way, for someone like me this Definitve Edition should have been free, or at most 90% discount. 50% does not cut it, and as said before, the difference insignificant. This along with the massive Triad Wars fail is just the last nail in the coffin to the franchise.

    Well I picked it up as I liked the original but missing half the dlc's what would have cost nearly £10 so not to bad for me in the end. I hope it has cloud saves as I kept losing my save games.

    I plan on grabbing it at 50% off and play through it again. I only had a couple of the DLC so to get them all makes it worth another play through for me.

    Sad isn't it? People thought that Squeenix would save True Crime considering what a success Sleeping Dogs was, but then Triad Wars turns out to be a ****ty MMO with recycled 90% of SD assets and SD gets an unnecessary and overpriced "Full HD" version.

    Very sad. My guess is that they never expected SD to be such a success, and after they had it, they didn't know what to do with it...

    Though in that thread they are discussing the game looking worse than the original and the comparison pictures show a excessive screen blur like it's some low quality AA shader (FXAA2 or what the console version of it was called, for example.) so while fixing the textures is good I don't think it'll help with overall image clarity.
