No surprise here. Every games is a remake. Most likely cheap ports from engines originally design for the 360. They just turn up the polygons until it maxes out the new xbox's graphics cards and ouila, you have what magazines and silly review websites are sure to call "the best graphics ever."

Also the first year of games that come out on any new console is never really good until the 2nd year and beyond because they finally learn how to fully push the limits of the new console.

Also during that first year of games on the new console, the strip out a lot things from the game so the following year it will be just a little better and then the following year after that they will just improve a little more.

It's all a marketing scam to get you to buy games. I plan on waiting a year before I make a purchase for the xbox ONE that way I don't have to go through the hassle that others will go through when it breaks down.

The only game on the list that desperately needs to be released on a next gen consoles is ---> Battlefield 4

Moral of the story, B3 on the 360 is kind of a joke running around on these huge maps with the limitations of 12 vs 12(because of outdated hardware) unlike the pc with 64 player matches.
