DOOM 3 BFG Edition in October

The Bethesda Blog announces the DOOM 3 BFG Edition will be released in North America on October 16, 2012, and the re-mastered version of id's shooter sequel is due in Europe three days after that. Here's the announcement, which also includes pricing information:

We’re pleased to announce that DOOM 3 BFG Edition is slated for release in North America on October 16, 2012 and throughout Europe on October 19, 2012. DOOM 3 BFG Edition will feature re-mastered versions of both DOOM 3 and the Resurrection of Evil add-on pack, as well seven new levels of content entitled ‘The Lost Mission.’ DOOM 3 BFG Edition will be available in North America on PC for $29.99 and on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 for $39.99.

Re-mastered for both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, DOOM 3 and it’s expansion pack offer enhanced visuals further immersing you in the demonic world like never before. DOOM 3, Resurrection of Evil, and ‘The Lost Mission’ have been optimized in 3D, featuring 5.1 surround sound, Xbox 360 Achievements, PlayStation 3 trophies, improved rendering and lighting, and a new check point save system allowing for smoother progression through the game. id Software has fine-tuned the controls to bring the intensity of the DOOM single and multiplayer experience to the consoles, and DOOM 3 now features the new armor-mounted flashlight, allowing players to illuminate dark corners and blast enemies at the same time.

DOOM 3 BFG Edition will also include the original DOOM and DOOM 2 games, making it the definitive collection of the genre-defining games developed by id Software, the pioneers of the first-person shooter genre.

For console players this might be worth it, if someone has never played it. But the graphics look the same on the PC version as the day it came out, looking at the trailer. A few extra levels is not worth $30 in my opinion.

Nor is it worth paying for the flashlight when the Duct Tape Mod is nice and free.

That being said, the console hate over this is silly. This game is how many years old? If it were the original XBox port I'd say there would be an obvious drop in quality (and there was with said original XBox port) but I think the 360 and PS3 can handle all the darkness and occasionally visible wasn't-even-good-for-the-time normal maps.
