I read some articles about Sega remaking the old Genesis game Castle of Illusion. If Disney wants to reduce direct exposure to the video-game business, this is definitely the way to go -- simply license remakes of old game content. Although I have not read any article specifically saying this, I assume Disney is making money off these remakes and has to give permission for them to go forward. I am surprised there hasn't been a business piece discussing Disney and these remakes. As you may recall, Capcom is remaking one of their old games for the HD generation.

Personally, I would like the old version to be re-released, but this is still very good news.
