Oh no it happened; everyone can’t seem to stop making ports of old games and putting them on current gen Xbox Ones and PlayStation 4. Is there any reason to get a new console if developers are just releasing repackaged ports of games that some of us have already played to death.

Ha-ha fears not Payday 2 is finally going to make an appearance on your current gen consoles on June 30,2015(according to amazon) in a complete edition called the Payday 2: crime wave edition. So you can finally forget about that Xbox 360 and/or PlayStation 3 Payday 2 disc you left collecting dust on the shelve due to the lack of updates and contents which was much loved on the PC.

Seriously, hundreds of hours well spent on the PC, but yet I’m still stuck on infamy V-100 until March 05 and behind a couple of DLC contents. I might as well make a plan to hop on an Xbox one and do another round while helping kiddies.

Payday 2 Crimewave edition what is it and when can you get? PAYDAY 2: Crimewave Edition is exclusively coming to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in June 30,2015 for $49.99(according to amazon). Sorry, no love for the WiiU.

What will be included? The base game along with $80USD worth DLC hopefully the console version will now be up to date with the PC version. I say hopefully because we here at PC get a new DLC pack to buy almost every two weeks. Damn micro-transaction -. - you’ll never know what will be added from now till June.

But here’s the list comparison of PC available contents what to expect in Crimewave edition.

Aside from a couple of missing content everything looks like a solid bundle. If you missed out or liked the Payday 2 loot bag contents. You can get a hold of this time around too, just by pre-ordering once again and the pre-order bonus is
  • Red dot weapon sight modification available for use on all rifle weapons
  • Exclusive Skull mask
  • PlayStation 4 or Xbox One exclusive mask
  • Unique mask pattern titled “I LOVE OVERKILL”
  • Unique color pattern, only available with this unlock
  • Bundle of in-game cash
So what might be the deal breakers for not getting Payday 2 Crimewave edition?
  • No split screen play
  • Questionable if the offline LAN play is available.
  • No save, transfer from Xbox 360 or PS3 to their respective platforms.
  • Unsure if console version will get as much love as the PC version.
  • Having to pay them XBL and/or PSN subscriptions in order to play online.
Arguably it may be cheaper to get payday 2 on consoles as it’s listed as $49.99USD on amazon opposed to $70.92USD GOTY edition on Steam which it is missing some of the new content itself. But console subscriptions costs could be better used for new PD2 DLCs if you get my flow. But honestly, are you excited about console Payday 2? Or have you already switched to the PC version?
