Okay, Destiny + No Man's Sky + Minecraft + VR, there's a billion dollar seller.

I like how they keep reissuing the same game every year for 60 bucks with minimal additions. It is hilarious.

If you strip away VR and Minecraft (while saving the building aspects, maybe), I'd be excited for something like that.

But...this isn't a remaster.

This is just another Destiny bundle, with more DLC included.

Yes, I understand that. My point is this entire generation is just a re-re-re-released update of an update of an update of a package.

It's really quite tiring, honestly. WORST generation on consoles I've seen in my life.

Agreed, originally the idea of a console with beefy amounts of ram had me excited. Instead it's become generation rehash/remaster of the exact same games that came out a year ago on 360/PS3. What a waste of potential.

I kind of feel this is the best generation ever to leave consoles behind. I toyed with it on the PS3/360 gen. The few games I miss hardly seem worth dealing with the overwhelming garbage of poor frame rates and sub 1080p resolution.

I play everything @ 60-144fps at 1440p. I am not going back. I prefer my console games to be of the retro variety.
