So with 2013 only a few days away Game Freak undoubtedly has something big in-store for us in terms of gaming. Are there any hints that could indicate an RS remake is possible? or would you even like to see Ruby & Sapphire remakes?
Yeah I really am desperate to get R/S remakes. I'm sure they'll announce it the next few months and probably get the US release in late 2013 or or early 2014. As of right now, there aren't any hints suggesting the remakes though, but surely, R/S remakes would be made.

If they've had the Development Kit for the 3DS since 2010, that gives them 3 years to set up a game for the 3DS they're going to take that opportunity, if anything it would boost sales of 3DS for hard core Pokemon fans. If Gen VI comes first, again that will undoubtedly be on 3DS and if the remakes were to follow they would also be on 3DS so IMO it's inevitable for the next set of games to be on the 3DS.
I do think they will make the remakes, it's just a matter of when they decide to release them. With B2W2 it kind of steered the whole "pattern" situation off course so now, Gen VI could come at the end of 2013 as testing grounds for the 3DS and then remakes could follow in 2014.
I'm looking forward to an R/S remake, as I started out with Ruby. The pattern has been thrown off, though, and Gamefreak already did something for the R/S anniversary. I thought just hit me. Since the "third game" was actually two sequels, will it be an Emerald remake? Or even a sequel to R/S?
Perhaps after gen 6... in the format that their going in right now they had 1st & 2nd gen then a remakes of first alongside 3rd then 4th and heartgold/soulsilver in between platinum and b/w1 maybe after gen 6 they will make a remake of gen 3 which regardless of when its made i think quite a ton of people would buy it instantaneously.
They did a Wi-Fi release of Kyogre & Groudon for White 2 and Black 2 respectively. With the remakes I'd assume they would incorporate Emerald features into both Ruby & Sapphire remakes as they did with HGSS.
