Hooray for recycled content in place of new games!  Hooray for buying things I already own over again!
 
I never understand the appeal for ports.  I guess other people treat their old games like ****, sell them, or are so lazy that paying for a new version is more desirable to them then going to the trouble to hook up their old system.
 
Even with the portable appeal, I don't feel any particular desire to play games I've already beaten again and again.  I'm done with Ocarina of Time.  And if I play through it again it would never be of such a high priority that I would need to do it while away from my house.
 
Whatever.  Stupid rubes can pay launch prices to play games they already own while I, like I did with the Wii and DS, will wait until NEW games show up and pay less money, while not missing out on anything at all.  It's never going to change so if you want to be Nintendo's whore, go for it.

Nintendo can't do anything to please anyone this generation, hence OoT 3DS.

They just cannot win.

I get what everyone is complaing about but this is kind of sweet.  Some games just hit people a certain way that they have to come back to it from time to time.  I think I've beaten Suikoden 2 like 4 times already and have been getting the hankering to pick it up again if it weren't for my backlog of games.  Its like a good movie, you may have already seen it but its enjoyable to watch it again from time to time.  Pulling out the original is always good but if you have the option for and updated package, then that could breath a little bit of new life to the game.  Some people like to relive classics with a new presentation as it lets them see it in a new light.
 
Also, I'd like to think that remakes introduce some gamers to old games that they might have never given the time of day as a result of not having said hardware at the time of its release or a dislike for the dated visuals.

You must also hate DVDs, Blu-ray Discs, e-books, etc. Did you ever think people may like to play their favorite games without having to whip out old systems and hook them up? Or people who may not have those games anymore? Tkae the Phoenix Wright games on WiiWare as an example, the DS versions are difficult to find now. I may not like OOT, but while you wait I know millions of people will buy the game and enjoy it. The 3DS games shown and announced today was pure sexy and easily secured Nintendo as having the best E3 already and eliminated any reason to wait for it. Everyone should get a 3DS at launch.

While they're remaking old games, do you think they could release Mario 64 DS again on the 3DS now that it can do analog control?

Isn't this what VC is for? Here, Nintendo gets to spend considerably fewer resources remaking a 12 year old game then sell it for $35 dollars. Great business sense because people will eat this up. Not me, though. I agree with Ian on this. Spirit Tracks was an utter waste then a remake of Ocarina of Time is what they follow up with. Ew.

Are the graphics being updated, or is it a direct port with 3d tacked on?

Nintendo took down the screens (I wish companies would realize that it too late to stop it by trying doing that)







I think it would be cool to see OoT in 3D and it's not like Nintendo has any chance in getting a brand new Zelda game ready for 3DS launch.

Not interested in Ocarina again... but a portable Star Fox 64 is a dream. It's the perfect "pick up and play" type of title, and its relatively short length with branching levels is ideal for a hand held.

Port ≠ Remake
I know, champ. I'm still confused over whether this is a port or remake. Still, it's irrelevant. I was responding to the question you posed. VC allows people to "play their favorite games without having to whip out old systems and hook them up." The screenshots suggest more than a straight port (i.e. sharper graphics), which, if true, I consider a waste of resources, even if 1 person worked on it. That would be one less person not working on a brand new Zelda game. Ocarina of Time has been re-released so many times and even if people missed the Gamecube compilation discs, it's been available on Virtual Console for over 3 years. The world doesn't need another way to attain Ocarina of Time.

Just saw this at IGN. How could Nintendo not announce this? What is arguably the best Zelda game ever getting a 3D upgrade! I hope this is a launch title and has a few other improvements besides looks.

Btw I said 'arguably the best' so let's not argue about which is the best.

The game is widely available elsewhere (N64, Gamecube, Virtual Console) so I'm not sure why they're putting effort into another remake. Maybe this will be a launch game akin to Super Mario 64 DS.

I would prefer a portable Zelda title that is done in the style of Twilight Princess. Not a remake of said title, but more of a new entry with TP graphics.

Screens look nice. There has been a demand in the past for a OOT remake.
