The original games were published by Activision, weren't they? That's the same company that still tries to sell a 7-year old game like Prototype 2 for $40 on Steam or the "franchise pack" of 1 & 2 for $60.
They just don't seem to understand the concept of higher volume sold at lower price, or they don't give a shit because CoD and Blizzard games sell so much at those inflated prices.
Either or, or some of both in the end.
Also, based on Steam reviews, both games are absolutely terrible buggy as all get out ports and should be utterly avoided due to said problems. It was obvious that no testing (or care) was put into either game. Heck - they don't even come with the DLC of the extra characters and such.
That said, the bugs and DLC are both to be fixed soonish, but until then, both titles are to be avoided. Even then I still wouldn't buy them at $60.
...damn this generation has been nothing but previous generation ports.
