A petition is pretty crazy. It's not going to get many signatures to begin with, and even if it does - the result means nothing.It's not such a crazy idea, but I don't know if a petition would make any difference. So many of us have been wanting a SR1 or SR2 remaster for so long (or even a PC version of SR1).
Honestly, I was surprised when they did an SR3 remaster. I didn't think it really needed one. I haven't purchased it yet because I'm perfectly happy with the original.
But SR1 and SR2 are BEGGING for a remaster, and I would buy that in a heartbeat!
