its capcom who have been worst than EA as a publisher, they went from a great publisher which made quality games last gen to just money hungry and greediness till they get every cent out of you

on disk dlc check
character dlc for SF check
selling actual ending of a game via DLC check,asura wrath

i buy all capcom games used since i rather give my money to someone on ebay or a used game retailer than to capcom.

Money....I always imagine Mr Krabs saying that

"So why did you want to make the Krusty Krab 2"

ThanatosDMC  +   1115d ago
Well, they're also selling Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen which is basically the ultimate edition, which is basically MvC3 to UMvC3.
Forbidden_Darkness  +   1114d ago
For someone who is just buying it for the expansion, I agree... But someone just buying into the franchise, its a great deal indeed. I'll be picking it up after its release either way, when its like $25 dollars or so, just to save more money

Just like why they're not making it on PS Vita.

They'd think it not make them enough profit to warrant it. Screw RE fanbases or Vita owners wanting a good game.

metroid32  +   1115d ago
Vita has sold so poor i have to agree with Capcom keep your Monster hunter's and Resident evils on 3ds.
ABizzel1  +   1115d ago

Then what's the excuse for putting it on the Wii-U. ZombiU is the best selling non-Nintendo game and it hasn't even broke 500,000 copies sold and it's the 3rd best selling game on the Wii-U.
younghavok  +   1114d ago
With the poor sales of the vita i wouldnt port it over either. Not only is the hardware selling poorly but so is the software. Big name games are struggling to find legs on the system. CoD AC LBP PSASBR just to name a few. If sonys big name games arent selling why bother? And before people start the Wii U crap, one is 3 months old, one is over a year. Capcom has already sold 200k on the console in japan alone where the sales arent even at a million yet, thats a pretty good number. So why not bring over another title thats kind of the same?
Mounce  +   1114d ago
@younghavok - Did you just call the CoD Vita game a 'Big name game'? Hah....hah....

Games sell the hardware, the only way to make the hardware sell is games and publicity/advertisement and marketing.

So you're saying, because the launch games and after a year that it hasn't sold many games that came for it, yet none were 'MASSIVE', to give up? lol....

The idea is this....Make MORE GAMES...Better games, and games that push it more and more, not simply Give up, it's reasons like that why you don't work for gaming companies :L Lest a "Eh, this series didn't sell to my quoto, let's give up" type of expression would be more frequent...

LOL 50$ for a HD port? F*ck off Capcom.
InTheLab  +   1115d ago
I love the reasoning for it..

"Umm, it's in HD, new raid mode, it's in HD, new characters, it's in HD, unlockables, it's in HD, platinum trophy, it's in HD....oh, and it's in HD".

F*** off indeed.
TheDivine  +   1115d ago
I won't buy it but to be fair it's a year old game that sells for 40 on a handheld totally redone in HD with new stuff added in and an expanded raid mode. I paid 40 day 1 (2 copies actually one was for my bro) and it was well worth it. Best RE since 4 by FAR!

I still say should've been the 40 the 3ds title cost but its Capcom. Its def worth it if you missed it. It's long, fun, tense, scary atmosphere, has the classic feel, and raid mode is the best coop in RE ever IMO. So addictive.
Number-Nine  +   1115d ago
This is the company that originally wanted to sell the handheld version for $50. Now they finally have a legit excuse to sell it at that price! woohoo...go capcom!

....god i hate them.
PopRocks359  +   1115d ago
I remember originally they stated it was because the cartridge held more data than the 3DS standard. Which is odd because Kid Icarus Uprising did as well, AND was bundled with the stand and that game was still only $40.

I agree, it was just to squeeze out more money, but hey, at least the game was worth it. I would never pay near as much for RE6. Sad that a portable game wound up being so much better than a full on numbered release.
DivineAssault  +   1115d ago
$50 for a game i beat already in HD? No thanks..RE4 HD wasnt even that much & is a longer game
yoshiroaka  +   1115d ago
What bullshit reasoning for no Vita version.
yoshiroaka  +   1115d ago
Good to know that the 3DS and my ps3 have the same infrastructure and output at the same resolution and that headphones dont exist and that the game should have never been on the 3DS in the first place if you wanted a real horror experience :/
porkChop  +   1115d ago
I know, right? They clearly didn't think that response through. If they really cared so much about all that then the game would never have been released on the 3DS. Capcom doesn't seem to realize that there is a huge gap in the Vita's library for games like Resident Evil. I would be surprised if a Revelations port didn't sell very well.
Whitefox789  +   1115d ago
Really! Quite literally when they mentioned honing in on the experience you get from a large screen, and surround sound. That just made me ask why wasn't it made for a large format in the first place?
metroid32  +   1115d ago
The 3ds has a powerful gpu and i remember when they were developing the game how impressed and far they could push the visuals in that it turned into a fully fledged console quality RE on a handheld they said it over and over again the 3ds can output console level graphics i'm more impressed by the 3ds than Vita anyways going off EX Troopers and MH4 ect and tons of games on that system look just amazing even cave story the retail version looks amazing.

"3ds wasn't supported on all platforms"

Does the Wii U not support 3D cause I know the 360, Ps3 and PC do.
PopRocks359  +   1115d ago
3DS has a 3D setup similar to the 360. I've seen it used in Assassin's Creed III.
herbs  +   1115d ago
Yes the Wii U supports 3D its strange that they left this feature out. I'm guessing this game will support Wiimote-Nunchuk combo if its also going to support the Move, it's nice having options.

Wow... I knew people on N4G hated Capcom but you guys really hate Capcom.

Sorry but I think I'll be picking this game up :-/. I didn't play the 3DS version and playing an old school style Resident Evil on my TV again sounds like fun.

Well at least they are not upscaling the 3DS version because if they did that the game would look horrible.


"the 3ds can output console level graphics i'm more impressed by the 3ds than Vita"

Right so inferior graphics impress you more than superior graphics. It has already been proven that the Vita is a lot more powerful than the 3DS so i dont understand why the graphics on the 3DS impress you more than the visuals. Im only talking about hardware here and not the games so you dont think that im oblivious to the existence of the 3DSs library.

and yet Nintendo fanatics say HD graphics don't matter...

but look at them flip flopping here

I even read them hoping Wii U can play Unreal Engine 4 graphics...

its really sad

"That being said the PS3 version will not support 3D unfortunately. We wanted all the new versions to be consistent with each other and 3D wasn’t doable on all platforms so the decision was made to move forward without it."

PS2 - Games I Bought

Clock Tower 3 /Devil May Cry 1/2/3/ Final Fight: Streetwise / killer7 / Maximo vs. Army of Zin / Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas: Oogie's Revenge / Okami / Resident Evil / Onimusha < FFS / Viewtiful Joe / Under the Skin

PS3 -

£10 Resident Evil 5 from blockbuster
Decided not to buy any other games until a few months later because Capcom always releases a full bundle... Resident Evil 5 - Gold Edition....


missed resident evil 6
missed marvel vs capcom
missed asuras wrath
missed dead rising
missed resident evil racoon city
missed street fighter 4
missed street fighter x tekken

^^^ all because when I go to buy the game I get major doubts as too how much DLC will come out, and the games always come out with special add on edition.... not cool
Whitefox789  +   1114d ago
Great list of PS2 games :D
ElectricKaibutsu  +   1114d ago
andshesays  +   1114d ago
I hope your not being sarcastic, I loved resident evil 4, and onimusha was amazing im surprised they never botherd to make another, viewtiful joe was great too, and I enjoyed killer7, final fight though.... not so good but atleast back then I had faith in cap com, now I just wait till they are cheap because its obvious they will release GAME + EXTRA later
Whitefox789  +   1113d ago
andshesays, I am most certainly genuine while I express my opinion on your PS2 collection as someone who yearns for a Viewtiful Joe 3 with Kamiya at the helm, along with playing every Onimusha game ever to exist slashing away at the demons in my way to topple Nobunaga Oda the Demon King's evil ambition (except for Dawn of Dreams where it was Hideyoshi Toyotomi), and still I have a great love of the classic RE games on the PS1 along with Code Veronica on the Dreamcast and PS2.

The day I bought the DMC 5th anniversary collection was a day of wonder for I had never experienced an action series such as these and can only attest by Yahtzee Croshaw that a term must be coined for these games which he himself dubbed, Spectral Fighter.

I must say though that I have committed a most heinous crime by owning Killer7 and Okami and have yet to play them for that alone I remain haunted, as newer titles and even older titles I acquire fill up my collection of 400+ games those two titles alone stare at me mockingly while I furiously try to finish other titles in my collection.

*While the above passage may seem satirical I must assure you I am very much serious while I am explaining my love of these games, it would not have been justifiable to simply say, "I am serious about liking your PS2 collection".*

On Amazon this game is full price for the Wii U £39.99 the 360/ps3 is £30 lol wut?!
ElectricKaibutsu  +   1114d ago
Well it makes sense because the wii u has two screens something something capcom sucks.
Samuel-Rodrigues  +   1115d ago
Considering that i never got to play this on the 3DS, im going to give this one a shot, looks like a step in the right direction for the series as opposed to the blockbuster action flick that was Resident Evil 5
Tzuno  +   1114d ago
and people will still buy. :)

At best this should cost $39
