It should also be noted that some companies, most notably [[Creator/{{Sony}} Sony Computer Entertainment America]], require a re-release to have a certain amount of new content or else it can't be released in that region. This is why some updated re-releases never see the light of day outside of Japan. After all, if you have a lot more "re-release" than "updated", you run the risk of CapcomSequelStagnation.

* ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoSanAndreas'' was pulled from stores after the Hot Coffee incident and the {{Media Watchdog}}s had a field day with it. Rockstar tried to justify a rerelease of the game (while making the "offensive" bit truly inaccessible to keep the game rated M) by including a "behind the scenes" of a movie and a 30 minute cut scene showing events that occurred before the beginning of the game. Some glitches and bugs were also fixed, while [[ThatOneLevel Supply Lines]] was made beatable. PC modders tend to avoid the updated PC version as it made modding, well, harder.



* ''{{VideoGame/Ico}}'' and ''{{VideoGame/Shadow of the Colossus}}'' each got an individual HD rerelease on the UsefulNotes/PlaystationNetwork coinciding with the ''[[CompilationRerelease ICO and Shadow of the Colossus Collection]]''. Besides the graphical upgrade for both games, ''ICO's'' rerelease is based the European/Japanese version, averting the [[ObviousBeta issues of the North American version]].

* ''{{VideoGame/Ico}}'' ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIII'' was ported to the Xbox in 2003 which featured enhancements on the game's visuals with higher poly character models with animated hand models, updated models vehicle with added specular lighting and ''{{VideoGame/Shadow reflections, and custom radio station with music from your console's hard drive, a feature also included in the PC version.

* ''VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire'', as with the previous two generations, received an update in the form of ''Pokémon Emerald'', which changes up the story a bit (in that [[BonusBoss Rayquaza]] now has a [[AscendedExtra more prominent role]] by stopping the feud between Groudon and Kyogre) and includes some different or entirely new features (such as the Battle Frontier). Surprisingly, unlike ''Crystal'', these new elements weren't included in ''Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire''.
** Speaking of which, the remakes of ''Red'' and ''Blue''/''Green'', ''[=FireRed=]'' and ''[=LeafGreen=]'', did not get an updated re-release like the games they are remakes of.
