While I am glad I get to play this game. I think charging fifty dollars for a handheld port is ridiculous. I will not be buying this game for that price. Once it's on sale for thirty or twenty dollars I'll consider buying it.
Aceman18  +   1101d ago
yea i was thinking about getting this, but not for $50 i'll just wait till it drops to around $15-20.

What Is Capcom Thinking?!
my thoughts long ago... this far this games seems to be as "good" as the movie!
helghast102  +   1101d ago
This is still a far cry from a "proper Resident Evil".

It's on a better track than RE6 though, I'll give it that.
PopRocks359  +   1101d ago
How is it a far cry? It has a dark and creepy atmosphere with monsters around each corner, not unlike the older games prior to RE4, complete with another kooky story.

And yes, it is much better than RE6.
helghast102  +   1101d ago
Because the atmosphere and monsters weren't the only things that made a Resident Evil game

people like you are why they charge these laughable prices, and to everyone else in this thread that has some personal morals i salute you, do not support this crap until it goes to proper price
DigitalAnalog  +   1101d ago
LOL! $50? Really? Is it that much expensive to port it to HD? Jesus, GOW I & II had higher production values and you get 2 GAMES for less! Shame on those who support this obvious cashcrab, I won't be even the least bit surprised if they just updated the resolution and leave it at that.

tru tru!!

"...obvious cashcrab."
You have to flip it on its back and hit its weakpoint for massive damage!

I don't know how much the PSN ports of Code Veronica and RE4 were in America, but they were $30 each here in Australia. So sadly I'm not surprised that Capcom would charge this much for a HD port of a 3DS game.
DigitalAnalog  +   1101d ago
@Pozzle
$20 each. Granted, their HD-port is so lackluster I won't be surprised if they had 1 programmer to port it and let the console do the rest.

Are you seriously asking what Capcom is thinking?

Don't the last 6-8 years show you what their mindset is?
Gamer1982  +   1101d ago
Exactly with all the on disc DLC crap they been doing lately.. The only people who can stop them doing this kind of crap is US the gamers. By not buying there games. Eventually lack of sales will force there hand and stop them ripping off the consumer but while people pay they will continue to rip people off. Also known as the XBL effect.
ABizzel1  +   1101d ago
We can't say it's Capcom. Some of Capcom's developers have actually been doing a good job.

But upper management are the one's who force the DLC and multiple editions on us.
Max-Zorin  +   1101d ago
Well, Capcom is the Japanese Ed Edd N Eddy.

I hated that show's art style.
jokia005  +   1101d ago
dont disappoint me anymore.
clintagious650  +   1101d ago
Yeah after playing RE6 i think ill take a break from this franchise. The games arent even scary anymore.
Venox2008  +   1101d ago
this one is much better than 6
Donnieboi  +   1101d ago
So what, i got this far without a decent RE game for years, so i'll live without this port. Maybe i'll check it out when it's $20, or i'll get used from gamestop and beat it within 7 days so I can get a full refund when done.
sway_z  +   1101d ago
Capcom are dying slowly...enough is enough!
PopRocks359  +   1101d ago
Considering DmC's recent success, I wouldn't bet on it.
Donnieboi  +   1101d ago
DMC's sales were just par. It's profits won't be enough to hold Capcom's pants up.
GABRIEL1030  +   1101d ago
Capcom is an idiot ¡ Crysis 3, Dead Space 3, Last Of Us, Gears of War are almost here, in the PSN you can buy RE6 for $ 29.99, I don't buy a recycled game from 3DS for 50 bucks, and worst no Vita release¡

Now I understand why there's no vita release. The 50 $ tag on cod was bad already imagine if RE was to come at this price...it would collect dust on gamestop shelves.
1upgamer99  +   1101d ago
I don't have and never really got into handhelds, though the 3DSXL is tempting me. So for me this game is fresh and new. Plus from what I have read it is much better than the crappy RE6. So I would pay $50 for it. Though I would understand someone not wanting to pay that for a game they already played. I don't think RE6 sold well (I have no idea how many it sold) that was supposed to be a BIG seller, so Capcom wants to make some of that $$$ up.
aiBreeze  +   1101d ago
Capcom taking advantage of their fanbase? Nothing new then.. move along nothing to see here.
aDDicteD  +   1101d ago
for sure it'll drop price quickly just like re6,
gamingmaster2013  +   1101d ago
they must be trying to make up the money which was lost from resi 6 :P
BLKxSEPTEMBER  +   1101d ago
So a stripped down version of uncharted on vita was ok at 50$ but a beefed up version of RE is a rip off? Gotta love these fanboys...

. Golden Abyss was not a $50 game...but it is different in this case as it released as a new handheld title on a handheld device. This is different from RER or Halo ce aniv, or Snake Eater on 3DS. UC was at least a new title and not a year old port of a cheaper handheld or from a previous generation.
instantstupor  +   1101d ago
You are kind of focusing on the wrong thing here. The 3DS version cost 39.99 at launch (just as Uncharted did, by the way). But when, in the history of games, have you ever seen a remake of a product - recent or 'classic' - cost more than the original? PS2 remakes are usually 10 dollars less and include at least 2 games from a franchise. If you want to look at Vita, the MGS HD games are 35 bucks for the pair. So why is it Capcom can get away with charging 50 dollars for a handheld port? The math just doesn't make sense.
FantasyStar  +   1101d ago
I'll wait and see until how the product looks before I judge if it's worth the asking price. I'm just stoked I don't need to get a 3DS.
