Well, I broke down and bought Grand Theft Auto V for PS4. It was just such a great game, and online heists are a thing now... The only caveat, I already own it for PS3!
This isn’t the first time I’ve done that either. Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. My original goal was to wait until I bought a PS4 before I bought MGSV:GZ, but I just couldn’t fight my Big Boss addiction. When I did end up getting the PS4, MGS was the first purchase for it.
One thing that I’ve noticed when playing the same game between consoles (last-gen and current) is the environment is so much more vibrant (evident in the header image). Character models may not change all the much (maybe some finer texture mapping), but the world around you improves drastically.
So my questions are: What games have you bought multiple times to play on different systems?
