    I am not a fan of remastering 360 games but really want games from pre-360 era to be remastered or ported, Playing them again with achievements would be awesome.

    These games are old, even a remaster would probably be not enough today. Their masterpiece is Quantum Break, the old games are just history.

    i think its going to just be backward compatible.

    just look at the picture it gives us all the clues we need starting with the back pack get it back pack compatible.....

    then of course a pic of max payne 1 and 2 and the magazine of control tells me we may have to buy control to get max payne 1 and 2 free.if not you can just buy them separate.

    this is what i make of it.

    I wish this was an Xbox One remaster. Max Payne is probably among my top 3 favorite xbox 360 games

    this right here is spot on, good use of back pack, the magazine has a picture of control but the word free is on it along with the word returns, plus the max payne games in the image, all suggest if you pre-order control you will receive max payne 1 and 2 for free on back pack as a bonus.

    Yeah, I think MP1/MP2 going BC (but not 3... yet) and as pre-order incentives is a good shout.

    I just hope we aren't getting ahead of ourselves... on the last Dev Diary for Control there was the tease: 'next episode will reveal a familiar voice'. I wonder if it's just going to be the voice actor for Max being announced as appearing in Control.

    Well, we'll find out in 20 mins...

    Well, thanks for getting my hopes up, everyone!

    Talk about a nothing announcement, good trolling of your fans Remedy.

    Hoping that they had planned on announcing BC for the games but something came up that delayed it (cough* ROCKSTAR* cough) and will come later.

    They posted that they will be at the New York Comic Con, so I guess that's the announcement?

    Why is this something like this even “news”? It was baseless speculation, it’s now been debunked. Get rid of it.
  • Posted on 27 September 18 at 20:03Permalink
    That’s the announcement, and it was horribly lame.

    We need Microsoft to release theirnhold on Alan Wake, or pay for HD remaster (aka pc port)
