Quoted from whthrs166:
I would not have had a chance to buy my MM original if it wasn't for the remakes. I couldn't afford a $12k-$18k game. Instead I was able to pick up a real nice one with lots of mods for $7k . I also found a nice CCC for a great price with lots of extras.(thanks Kim) The manufacturing of the remakes creates opportunity for folks to buy an original (at a good price) or remake NIB. This is a win/win in my book because I also bought an AFMr LE. This is a game that I have been pursuing for a long time but could not find an original that wasn't trashed or at a decent price. So I can't imagine anyone not approving of the Remake initiative!
