    <!--quoteo--><div class='quotetop'>QUOTE </div><div class='quotemain'><!--quotec-->Australia's Classification Board has listed a new rating for Sonic Adventure DX: Director's Cut, suggesting that the GameCube game might be ported to current systems.

    The rating says "multiplatform," which further vagues up whatever Sega's plans are here. That Gaming Site, which saw the listing earlier today, figures it could be a new control scheme on the Wii, an XBLA release, or part of some new compilation.

    Sonic Adventure DX debuted on the Dreamcast in 1998; the Director's Cut was the version brought to GameCube and PC in 2003.<!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd-->

    Honestly? I'd get it on XBLA or something, Sonic Adventure is fun. I'm hoping it's a completely new remake though, DX was buggier than the original.

    Discuss if this is worthy of discussion.

    Haaahaahaahahahahahahaha. Awesome though, seriously. I'd pay for it, as long as they made the design a little more like the original DC version.

    ...Right.

    Anyways, could this be part of Sonic's Ultra 128-Bits Collection: Part 1 or something, featuring SADX, SA2B, SH and ShTH? Unlikely, I'd say, but you never know when SEGA may decide to grab random games they already have finished and resell them for more money. Again. It's probably for XBox Live and PSN.

    My opinion is that Sonic Adventure was one of the last good Sonic games. The game still hasn't been seen by a really large audience...only those that have owned a GameCube, Dreamcast, or bought the PC version of it. There's plenty more people who have yet to play the game. If they added new content to the remake—more levels, unlockables, missions, and online play—and released it on something like the Xbox, I could see it getting really good reviews all over again. If they just did a flat-out port of the GameCube version then everyone will just be shouting, "we've seen this before."

    I've honestly never played it before, and having the ability to play it on a system we actually own would be awesome.

    Also, ITS REALLY HARD TO TYPE WITH A CAT ON YOUR ARM

    I wouldn't mind seeing a remake with significantly improved features (HD visuals, better voice overs, fixed cutscene problems, less glitches, less broken side characters etc), but if it's a standard port to Wii or XBLA I'll probably pass. I might cave in and buy it for achievements and perhaps online Chao features, but otherwise no.

    We need to fix that.

    I'd buy it, but I doubt there's going to be anything radically different. I do wish they fix the framerate and lip-syncing issues, personally. However I doubt that will happen. Probably just slightly higher-res textures and achievements.
     
  9. Guys..you realize what this means?

    Its a REMAKE of a REMAKE.

    SEGA is willing to have another SONIC game, but not just ANY Sonic game, a REMAKE of a previous Sonic game, remade!

    To me, this is just low.

    HOWEVER, if it brings something new to the table, possibly betters the graphics, and maybe allows Chao data to be done ONLINE, then I will care.

    But please think about it.

    I'd like it to hit PSN. I'd also prefer the Dreamcast version.

    If it's just another port with next to no new features, that's pretty low. If it's a ground up remake of one of the best 3D Sonic games made in the vein of Conker Live & Reloaded, I'm all for it.

    DX was an enhanced port, not a remake.

    Imagine Sonic Adventure using the Hedgehog Engine for visuals.

    It probably won't happen, but it would look damn pretty.

    Interesting. I can't possibly think of anything else new that could be added to the game as a result of a new port outside of enhanced visuals, so I'll be watching news on this closely. I hope they can find something fresh to add to the game, though—I was playing through it the other day and the cutscenes and other graphical elements have definitely not aged very well. The levels and such are fun as always, though.

    A remake with the Hedgehog Engine would be brilliant, though! Knock on Unleashed's gameplay all you want, but those visuals were nothing short of incredibly stunning.

    Working on my art!
    If they fixed some shit up I'd gladly buy it. Widescreen support, redo in game models, and remade cutscenes would be all I need for insta buy (I'm sick of seeing mouths moving too long and walking in place).
     
  20. It'll probably just be a port of the PC version, given the architecture similarity. If they add extra content, it'll probably be limited to achievements and such.
