It's NOT a remake. It's a prequel and deals with what happened to the Norwegians in their camp after they found the spaceship and its pilot. Remember? The (maybe) last two survivors from the Norwegian camp hunted the dog-thing to the US camp (beginning of "The Thing" (1982)).
By the way: how comes you like Carpenter's "Thing" if you don't like remakes? Carpenter's movie was a remake.
EDIT: Beamer beat me to it.
Consoles? I owned two: a Pong clone and an Atari 2600. And that's it.
