  1. I wish they were all coming to the PS4. What good does it do to release a game for the N64, if few people still have one going and plugged in? I have one, but then again, I ALREADY have all the Star Wars titles for it!

  5. They should remaster them all & re-release them on the new platforms they would sell like hot cakes. Look how awesome Dark Forces & Ep.1 Racer looked from that guy upgrading them on unreal engine.

  8. Why on earth wouldn’t they remake the original battlefront games! Not to be rude but the new ones were totally crap so what better way to redeem those than remaster some of the best Star Wars games i’ve personally played and loved

  11. Why not Gladius? It's like they forgot about this game. It ended on a cliff hanger with promises of a sequel. 16 years later still nothing.
