*remaster. "Remake" is a new game, made from scratch, that's merely based on the older game. Think "Godzilla" (1998). A remaster is a touched up re-release. Think "Godzilla" (1954) Criterion Collection Blu-ray.

The 8th generation, a generation in which remakes, ports and remasters are outselling many current gen titles.

Well those that do get a remaster has a popular franchise or the orginal game sold very well. Soooo obviously its going to beat some current gen games.

Agree with you. Many 8th gen games on all platforms are remakes. On PS4 The Last of Us and GTA V were remakes and were massive hits, on XBone you had Gears of War remakes and Wii U WWHD and now Twilight Princess. In Hollywood you have more remakes than ever. Point Break, King Kong, Robocop, Titanic and Total Recall to name a few. While I see the point of Jranation I am dismayed that there are few new games that evoke this level of interest. I own those games on their original consoles and have no need for remakes but many who own them buy them again due to a lack of new and exciting content IMO

If anything that says something about the quality of the 8th gen titles compared to those of older generations I guess. :-P
