This trend has been going on for a while in the Video Game Industry.
It all started with the harmless release of the God of War Collection (Sorry, not sure if there was one before that on the 360). It fitted into the picture since God of War 3 was about to be released. Not a bad idea, giving people the earlier games before it’s release so they’d get all fired up. I admit, I’ve bought it too since I haven’t played God of War 1 and 2. It was fun and all.
Now we have Sly Collection, Prince of Persia Trilogy, Metal Gear HD Collection, Silent Hill HD collection, Tomb Raider HD Collection and so on. Now the Achievements/Trophies for Resident Evil Code Veronica HD popped up. Square ENix also said they’d make a Final Fantasy HD collection if fans demand it.
