OR remake it in a newer engine (ie source, not that godawful U3 engine) and charge more for it. Id buy it.
Who here WOULDN'T buy SS2 in the source engine?

Tribes was my first online FPS and was the title that really got me into PC gaming. I think I might have to go grab a copy and see if it will run under Vista....
