Why would they be, it's ANOTHER HD game which will probably only be a little bit better but only available for the PC, what about PS4/Xbox One versions.

I just feel they've released this more times because RE5 onwards have all disappointed fans

They should of done a better HD edition but with a crap load of new content, maybe cut levels etc, new modes, new guns, better mercenaries. Why is it for the mercenaries mode they can't do it WITHOUT the stupid time limit, as an option, seriously I want to see how long I could last without breaking those silly clocks.

I don't see why it's so hard for them to make a good RE game...they need to reboot it now though, they've ruined the story and characters way too much. You know my idea, reboot-retelling, same characters, same starter story but different future events.

"I just feel they've released this more times because RE5 onwards have all disappointed fans."

I think this sentence you said makes a lot of sense. 5 and 6 were Capcom's embrace of "nu-horror", where they say it's horror, but it has more action setpieces than a Michael Bay movie. Capcom knows that everyone liked RE4, so they're just cranking out another one to get every drop of relevancy onto the market. (We'll probably have a 4K re-release when that catches on too)

RE4 is great. I love that game so much, but I totally agree that another re-release of this game, only with a better frame rate and HD on PC, is no reason to buy this again, especially at $20.

RE4 already came out on the PC.... I'm pretty sure the PS3 and 360 HD versions were based on the PC code so they could actually be "HD", using the best assets etc. This can only really be a blatant cash grab, as you can get this on PC, and have been able to do so since May 2007.

Supposedly, the best way to play RE4 is to run the Wii Edition on the Dolphin emulator with a good PC, then apply the HD texture mod.
The original PC version was based on the inferior PS2 version (less polygons, worse lighting etc)

I hope this new HD PC edition is based on the Gamecube graphics and not PS2. For all the releases this game has had, none have truly done it justice in all areas.

It would be nice if they did use the gamecube models. But by the looks of it, I'd hardly call this a "HD" version so far.

port it to ps4 please capcom!

LoaMcLoa1462d ago

It's been re-released like 5 times already. Pretty much everyone has played it.

Hold on a minute, speak for yourselves! I want the HD Remake for the PC! Last PC version was awful and didn't take advantage of the PC's strength. I think that this is a good opportunity to get a proper version in our hands, even though it is very late.
