Hey people:


https://www.facebook...batHdCollection


Join or die.


What can I say? Ace Combat: Assault Horizon was fun, but it wasn't memorable. It wasn't the Ace Combat we all know and enjoy, and looking and talking to all those fans of the original games....it has become painfully obvious that many people remember fondly the older Ace Combat titles, especially Shattered Skies, The Unsung War and The Belkan War.


So what we've done is start a group that is aiming to convince Namco Bandai that now, more than ever, is the perfect time to dedicate to re-launching the best loved games in the series to an HD collection for Xbox 360 and PS3.


How can we do this?


Well...I hope you guys know I have a little practical experience in this. The idea of actually getting an HD collection made is a very, very long shot. It's stupendously tough to convince a publisher to do something like this because...well, we're talking about older games. Most of this site is filled with rabid, and I mean fanatical fans of the franchise. They know that we will buy their product. They know we are definitely in, even if we don't really love the current offering. Why? Because we are fans. Publishers recognize that they have our sales dollars, but what they want is the broader market.


Fun thing is, I think when we as gamers talk to a more casual audience, a lot of people do really remember Ace Combat and have played those games previously. These titles were incredibly well done for that generation and people remember just how good the games are.


It is our job to spread that word around, to remind people of how cool these games were. There's a lot to be done, and I am certain if we really are fans...we can get an HD collection done. Namco Bandai is financially sound right now, the console cycle is a few years out from being finished, and they won't have to dedicate as much resources to this as they would a full-on title. Sure, AC:AH did not do as well as we would have hoped...and things did not go well with fans...but we still love the series for what it makes us feel. We're the core, but we know the casual will play this title, just as they used to.


Dark Souls fans successfully petitioned for a PC launch of a terrifically made game.


Ace Combat fans can definitely ask for a sprucing up of the games we've enjoyed.

I'm on board with this. Signed the petition yesterday and joined up on the facebook page as well. I hope with enough input and dedication from us fans, we will see this come to fruition.

Liked. Signed. Sharing where applicable. I'm surprised there hasn't been a concerted effort to do this before.

Someone's already beat you to the punch: https://www.acecomba...c.php?f=2&t=236 I did reply to mention the Facebook page, though.

I just signed the petition. I've deleted my Facebook account, so I can't join the group, but I hope we can build steam on both of these fronts! I just sent out a message through my Ace Combat Quotes Twitter as well, so hopefully I can get some people through that.

Someone should post on Mr. Kono's Facebook wall with these two links (Facebook and Change.org). :)

Actually I meant this, but it seems Iceyoucold has already taken care of that. Thanks, Ice!
