The "why is the first game not in the collection?" thread.

Here you can ask the question a lot of people will ask/have asked.
To avoid the question being asked a number of times and the unavoidable thread, here's the official thread. Have fun!

"Why is the first Hitman-game (Codename 47) not in the collection?"

Hitman: Codename 47 is full of glitches, aggrevating bad controls and overall feels like a dry-run for Hitman 2: SA.
To make this game into a playable "HD" game, they have to remake the whole game. Which costs a lot more money than upgrading a game to "HD".

Plus, the best missions from C47 have already been remade in Contracts.

So there you go.

Ok, that makes sense. I was wondering why Blood Money was in, I've still got my copy.

Also, it was PC exclusive. Maybe Microsoft and Sony don't have the rights to re-publish the first title.

Microsoft and Sony have absolutely nothing to do with the rights to the game.

tl;dr - Call it the Xbox One or X1.

Why do people keep thinking this has anything to do with MS/Sony?

Some gamers can't read for content and that makes them look like idiots. They don't realize that what they say/ write says a lot about them whether they intend it or not. Good info, can't wait for this one. Only rented Blood Money.

Ahhh I seen now. Thanks for info. In my comment about this HD collection in article that I mention to said hope Square Enix bully to IO to get consoles for Hitman 1. So now I realize there reasons why for IO not want bring Hitman 1 onto consoles also some best missions remade onto Hitman 3 which is I didn't realize.

So do secret achievements is all about Hitman 2 and 3? 50 full achievements without Blood Money since Blood Money got achievements in 2006 so they still used same one but this one will be separate achievements?

Same reason I think the first Silent Hill game wasn't included in that HD collection. Which was PS1 if I'm not mistaken. Also wasn't the first Hitman for PC? I don't know how it works but I think they would have to go through more to get it compatible with console.

Well as OP also said they would have to remake the game in HD which really isn't worth the hassle.

I'm pretty tired of them not putting the first game in. they did the same thing with metal gear solid.

My favorite mission from the first game was a take off from a scene from the Godfather. You're tasked with starting a war behind some Chinese Triads and the police.
First you hid a gun in the bathroom of the meeting place, since you're gonna get patted down. Next you ambush the member of the one triad to steal his clothes.
But the best is when you arrive and sit down. 2 Chinese men and 1 obviously not Chinese man. And 47 just says, "My father was of Western descent." And they accept it. And die.

I'm kind of glad they don't include the first because at some point it starts to forget its stealth origins and just wants you to run and gun for a while. At least that's how it seemed to me, maybe some people were able to complete every mission in a stealthy way.
