I will admit that I am not the world’s biggest Spyro fan. I played the first one on the PlayStation and enjoyed it. I also played through Spyro A New Beginning on PlayStation 2 which actually I really enjoyed. So Spyro Reignited Trilogy is a collection that I am somewhat interested in, but some news has put a dark shadow on the game.
Activision has come out and said that on the disc is going to be Spyro 1 and in order to play Spyro 2 and Spyro Year Of The Dragon you will have to connect your PlayStation 4 or Xbox One online to download them!
No reason has been given as to why this is the case. I really doubt the games are that large they need this. If Grand Theft Auto V can fit on one Blu-ray disc then so can three remastered Spyro games. I know the chances of someone having a PS4 or Xbox One and not having internet access are slim to none. However, this is a major annoyance that if you ask me does not need to be there.
I already hate having to download a day one update along with a long installation time when I purchase a new PlayStation 4 or Xbox One game. But now they are not even putting the full thing on the disc?
As much as I am interested in Spyro Reignited this is a really lame move on Activision’s part. I am actually contemplating not getting the game on launch, which is September 21st by the way. Instead, I am thinking of waiting this out to see if they fix it in the future.
I really, really hope that this turns out to be some kind of mistake on the PR departments side, but it is not looking like it is.
What do you guys think of this? Can you think of a single reason as to why Spyro 2 and Year Of The Dragon are not on the disc? Will this affect your decision to purchase the game? I am genuinely very interested to read other people’s opinions on this so please leave them in the comments down below.
