Will we ever see a PS4/XBONE remake of the original Deus Ex and Invisible War?

    Will we ever see a PS4/XBONE remake of the original Deus Ex and Invisible War?

    As a mainly console gamer, I like many others never got to play the first 2 Deus Ex games. Since many of us haven't played the old games, what do you guys think about a Remaster/Remake of Deus Ex 1 and Invisible War in the style of HR/MD for the new systems? Personally I think it would be a great idea. But what about you guys?

    I never asked for this.

    In all seriousness, though, I doubt this is likely to ever happen. DX1, in particular, was not optimized for use on console controllers (it's a much more menu-based system with lots of quick/hot keys required to have the best experience). The PS2 adaptation (The Conspiracy) is probably the only console port we'll ever see of the original game, and while I was actually quite impressed with this version, it was still inferior in several aspects to the PC version.

    But if you want a DX1 with third person cover and takedowns and all that stuff? No thanks.

    I don't want a remake of Deus Ex. Sorry, but a gamer doesn't play games for 'graphics'.

    A DX remake will have quest markers, object highlighting, PROD takedowns, cover system, etc. and all the Hollywood scripted nonsense from the beginning.

    You are better off modding the original Deus Ex with mods such as HDTP(for meshes), New Vision(for textures), and DirectX10/11(http://kentie.net/) renderer from Kentie's.

    If you want gameplay improvements for DX, make sure you download the GMDX mod.

    I don't want a remake of Deus Ex because it's pointless. The effort and resources are fare better spent making something new.

    You can probably run Deus Ex&Invisible War on your toaster now, so what's the point in remaking them for consoles?

    Personally I want the Deus Ex: Invisible War Invisible Edition, it's invisible so you can't really play it.

    I don't think so. Something tells me that probably we'll get another game with Jensen as the main guy and the inevitable Deus Ex remake will be left to the next generation.

    The remake trend is something I hope will die soon. I'd like to see something new, like DXMD.

    I only bring this up since I live many others, never get to mess with PC gaming due to a busy schedule. If people who were against the idea could see it from my that perspective I think you would understand
