Each time a new HD remake or Digital Remaster gets released, if you listen closely you will hear a collective sigh of disappointment that comes from long time collectors. The common thought is that this diminishes the value of the original release of a game. Is there any merit to this though?
This month we take a look at HD remakes, compilations, remastered games and digital re-releases and see how each affects the value of the original release prior to, during and long after the new release is available. Is your Earthbound cart going to depreciate drastically after the Wii U e-shop release? Let's find out!

Loved the talk on the main topic and I agree with the concensus that it dips short-term and levels out again long-term. It makes me wonder what the long-long-term prospects are on these things, like when they reach the "Antiques Roadshow" point. It's anyone's guess.
Also, "Irving Slowman" makes me laugh out loud every time. I have no idea where it came from but I embrace it fully.
