PSU: According to rumors in the latest issue of Electronic Gaming Monthly, Capcom plans to release Resident Evil 5 before/during the holiday season of this year.
OH MAN. BRING IT!
Yawn... I broke this news, what... 2 months ago? Please... People will learn one day, Gamesblow is legit. I'm finally getting the word out, though. More and more people are hitting my site and I've finally passed over 200,000 hits since October.
pfft gameblow please man stop trying to flatter yourself its pathetic.......you wern't the first to do anything there have been sites speculating this for months now and most of the sites have this game in their gamnes to look out for in 08 so stop trying to promote yourself its sad
Sounds good though I thought the setting was confirmed to be Haiti??
i thought they said 2009.
just make it EPIC.
i don`t care when i get it.
i just want it to be the BEST it can be.
I agree, mate!!
people get to anxious for games.
i just want it to be the BEST.
Assassins Creed is a perfect example.
if we weren`t playing it until NOW, it would have been MUCH MUCH better.
at least less repetitive.
I never remember them sayin 2009. I had always hoped 08. I love RE it is one of the only series I follow well.
I also agree. On the internet today you hear too many immature kids being impatient saying they dont want games at all if they can't have them right now. Just read up on the CoD4 Patch. You coulda swore that the game was voted Worst game of the year instead of Game of the Year.
Ladies and Gentlemen good evening, you've seen that seeing's believing. In other words I'll believe it when I see it. The Genius has spoken.
your making other people dumber. On topic, I too will believe it when I see it. Its possible, but not plausible.
As lng as its not November ! GeOW 2 time ! ,bt,really, i thnk resi 5 wil release in dec.or,they'l push it 4 2009
RE5 is a bigger title than Gears 2... from what we've seen of the gameplay, I expect more from it too! Plus, I think that both games could survive a November release just fine.
RE5 is a bigger game than Gears 2, but it's my most anticipated game this year though.I don't know what you people think, but I think RE4 is the best game I have ever played.
He didn't say anything about which game is bigger. You've seen gameplay of either game?.
The series is popular and known due to the series apearance on many consoles its 2nd to GTA if it comes out this year maybe not in sales even to Gow 2.
What are the odds of two zombie posts from two different games in a few hours of eachother when none have been posted for weeks looks like somebody must of read my tiff I got into over Left 4 Dead.
Very doubtful. Capcom tends to show a lot of their games during development, and I don't remember seeing any gameplay yet, and if there was, it was a trailer with only a few shots of gameplay.
I'm calling this one a rumor. It'll be going head to head with God of War 3 and all the big titles of 2009.
There was nothing BUT gameplay in the trailers they showed at E3... the title was touted as being a Holiday 08 title at the time! So this doesn't strike me as being such a big surprise... more like it's about time.
Nothing but gameplay? Maybe we're not watching the same trailers. Sure, they use what appear to be in-game graphics, but to say its mostly gameplay is kidding yourself. In the E3 trailer, the majority of it appears to be the intro for the game, and there are maybe 10 seconds of Chris firing at zombies, and possibly 10 seconds of him walking through doors. It looks crisp, but based on what we've got, that isn't exactly any indication that the game is near completion.
Even thought 4.1 is a exagerating a bit. There were gameplay trailers. They were similar to the beginning of RE4 and showed our hero doing some Hand to Hand as well as using a few rounds of the hand gun than it cut to a quick cut scene.
And the second was at E3 last year. Yup, I agree,they do show alot, I mean,look at the vids for DMC 4, whch I got maybe 2 vids and then avoided the rest to nt spoil the game
Edit : Oh, that wasn't sarcasm. Missed that at first.
2009. I figure the word of the producer is better than PSU.
i distinctly remember a GDC interview with a MS rep saying that RE5 will come out in 08
We have to go through this every year, to many games in the last few months of the year, most of us don’t have the money for all these games and most of us don’t have the time for them, spread them out a little please.
I would prefer if This or Alone in the Dark gets a 2009 release rather than the already crowded 3rd/ 4th quarter.
Since there hasn't been any official release date change from capcom, this will have to do:
The producer of the game ought to know better than PSU.
This game is going to be groundbreaking whenever it's released be it 08 or 09. Already have it pre ordered, and now I'll wait patiently for a masterpiece.
I really loved the old RE. Zombies, mansion, everything was perfect untill they decided to move it to the country-side, a spanish talking country-side. It is not scary anymore, I dont know, I just feel that Resident evil died with Resident evil 4. RE5 seems to follow the direction of RE4 but this time its african farmers.
In my opinion RE4 was the best. I did miss that pre rendered creepy visuals and scary camera views but I did hate the controls. The problem with RE4 was that it wasn't scary. The beginning was a bit creepy but then afterwards it didnt feel scary at all. They need to bring back the horror of Resident Evil 1 into Resident Evil 5.
You're right about the controls. They made the game more difficult than it should have been. I just hope that one of the programmers for Resident Evil 5 understands the concept of being able to move when you shoot. No one in their right mind is going to stand perfectly still and shot when you have a group of people rushing you throwing things as well as a chainsaw wielding guy heading your way. Also, Please Capcom, there are two analog sticks on the controllers for both the PS3 and 360, make use of them. This isn't 1996 anymore with one analog stick controllers. We use the right stick to aim and the left stick to move in today's games.
Well your the less then 1% of gamers who think RE4 killed the series.....since it was the most praised version of resident evil ever!!!!! and one of the top games of all time!!!!
Sry but people sound foolish when they complain about RE4 like really.... its one of the only things that has saved the franchise from becomming the same thing over and over again with no innovation what so ever.....and the next one looks even better
The games before it had horrible camera, and control. RE camera was revolutionary, as you can see most adventure shooter games these days are using it, and the controls felt perfect. Also realistically when you shoot a gun you're most likely going to be standing still if you want to hit anything. Also the mansion in the original was creepy, but the series has never been all that scary. If you want scares play other horror games such as silent hill. Regardless RE5 looks a lot scarier than re4 at least.
My expectations for RE5 went to very low. Capcom lately has been releasing crap games. Look at DMC4. Its an insult to all DMC Fans. I was a DMC Fan and Capcom fan until recently. Capcom, EAT A D1CK
I liked DMC4
i was in the 6th grade and rented it ! ! ! ! OMG ! ! i didnt sleep for a long long time ! i want that scare again.walking through the bus at the early stages, then that zombie grabbing ur leg ! ! thats what I want. Looking at Silent Hill V ,its lost its scare factor, i want Resi to bring it back,bt I dnt knw. I hope so tho
Oh so you played a game thats not even close to being finished yet?
if this game is even half as good as RE 4, them the developers should take as long as they want to make sure the games ready
That's a long time I'll be officially 19 that month so that's a hell of a long time to wait for this game. I hope this game delivers on all consoles.
If it comes out for both platforms at the same time, I think this time I'm goign with the PS3. I love achievements and the online community of the Xbox 360, but with a survival horror game, sound will be very important. Not only does the PS3 have superior HD audio, but right now I can't here quiet passages on movies I download on the 360. The fan noise is just too loud.
I really hope the PS3 version ships the same day as the 360 version.
It will be great for sales but what about quality? We want RE5 to be special.
This is one game to watch out for. I can't beleive no one mentions this as a goty title. I mean sure gears, msg4, resistance, killzone and other titles deserve their share of hype, but this title should generate that much hype too. Maybe because it's capcom and multiplatorm, that why it's doesn't get noticed. I mean come on, RE4 is ranked #1 on the ps2 in game rankings and metacritic.
isnt it about time the franchise introduces multiplayer to the game
