REPORT: Original Far Cry Coming to Consoles in HD

A HD re-release of the original Far Cry game has been spotted on the Brazilian Ratings Board. With the original 2004 release being a PC exclusive, this is good news for PS3 and 360 gamers.

The Crytek  developed shooter was set in tropical locations similar to the ones we loved in Far Cry 3 and is something console gamers would probably be keen to investigate. Ubisoft haven't officially announced the HD makeover yet, but with Far Cry 3 shifting over six million units and Blood Dragon proving to be a big hit, we think this is a no brainer. The Brazilian Ratings Board were also behind the early unveiling of Blood Dragon, so this is probably legit.

Interesting, but will console gamers want to play almost a decade old game when they have the 3rd installment and a spin off?
It's not old enough to be considered retro and storywise I think most console gamers would feel it was not quite good enough (compared to the recent game and similar recent titles).

I agree. This game unlike the late Crysis 1 port that the consoles got is rather more dated and probably won't have the appeal.
