You know what fuck this. I'm just not gonna buy any of these fucking games until I KNOW the damn thing is not going to come out in another version. I'm in the middle of a fucking playthrough on PC and now what? What is this going to bring?

I guess I can now expect this for every damn game released ever. Good god man.

The people going "lol why HD version on PC, I already got that lol" realize that the PC version of this release is probably just going to be like a standard GOTY edition, right? Well, plus any changes they decide to make to character models and such.

Day one though. I'll take any reason to play through this again.

So is this a Metro type thing or are they just trolling? I find it hard to believe they can do much with the PC version.

I was JUST in the middle of Metro when they did this to me as well. Man, I am so tired of this. I will now know better than to support devs with last gen games.

I've yet to play this game but it's on my soon list.

Snagged it for £3 on PC like someone else mentioned. That's a ridiculous price for a game like this. And my pc is already HD extreme native, patch please? I'll pay £1-3.

It's still stupid to call it a HD edition, and I don't see the point of a goty edition when the game has been on sale for FIVE DOLLARS on steam. (as was tomb raider btw)

Seems a bit of an odd choice. Would rather they starve me of Sleeping Dogs until Triad Wars is out. Would make it that much sweeter.
Uhm what? You're not forced to buy it, you can starve yourself. These "HD" releaseas are made to attract new people since the sequel is coming.

Tomb Raider Definite Edition>PC 4k edition
I can't wait to play Sleeping Dogs: Wei "Motherfucked with my face" Shen Edition. Count me in the camp that prefers the original Tomb Raider over the DE.

I do see what you're trying to get at though. On console even just the current PC version would seem like a whole new game compared to the last gen versions. I still wanna see some comparisons, if this is real.

I can't remember but during any other console release period were there this many retreads ported on the newer consoles?

Finished this game on the PS3 and it was great, then I finished on the PC again and it was simply amazing. I wonder if a PS4 version can look better than what my PC can handle but I'm not sure about a 3rd time playing this game.

That might be wei too much.

One of the games I missed out on last gen. Would love a PS4 release, probably not day one but eventually.

You really think publishers care if you can get the game for five bucks on Steam? Considering the original game was HD I highly doubt it's going to be called "HD edition". That's probably just the name shopto threw it up as.

That's not an official bundle though.

I generally don't go mad for remasters, but along with GTAV, this is a game I really wanted to get an upgrade for the PS4. so this is very pleasing news. Assuming it's true of course.

They are Steam keys offered by the developer to a retailer, they are official. And as far as $5, $5 > $0.

Holy shit i just realized that Triad Wars wasn't even shown..
Yeah this is the most painful no show for me. Means the game's probably not out til fall 2015 at the earliest :(

OT, what could they possibly add to HD-ify the PC version, unless they mean some kinda deluxe edition content additions?

This is one of my absolute favorite open-world games of all time and people should remember that UFG did an absolutely stellar job of supporting this on the PC, from HD textures to post-release support for a variety of oft-requested PC features.

I really have no idea what they'd even add for a PC HD rerelease, but I'd buy it anyways just to support UFG, cause they're some of the good guys. They're rather like 4A and CDPR in that respect.

Sleeping Dogs is one of the last games I'd want this treatment for. The PC version was pristine and pumped up as is, little enhancements aren't going to do much for me but I guess it's nice for consoles.

Hopefully continuing the shine some spotlight on the game means a sequel is being prepped.

This delays the sequel. And the sequel was already confirmed so we didn't need an "HD" version of the first one to reassure us.
Meh. Nobody wants the sequel to this more than me. But who says United Front is even DOING the remaster? And even if they are, so? Presumably the people who were working on TR: Definitive Edition are probably doing the work on this now.

I wasn't saying the were pirated copies or anything, just that the actual bundle isn't something SE is offering. Think of it like this. When the PS4 was released gamestop and other places were sold out of the systems alone but were offering bundles that came with games and such, but it was the retailer bundling these things together, not Sony.

I for one, don't think Sleeping Dogs looked nearly as splooge-worthy as people like to say. Shit was decent, not mindblowing. Bring on the graphical upgrades

Sleeping Dogs HD on PC... But then what the hell is the PC version I have installed on my PC with the wonderful HD Texture Pack?

Anyways, I hope people buy into this, even if it just for my own selfish desire of wanting more money going towards a Sleeping Dogs sequel or followup, maybe in another iconic Asian city like Tokyo or Seoul.
