Capcom gives IGN a peek at a work-in-progress build of Resident Evil's HD remake.
I have to say the Gamecube version holds up pretty well. The biggest difference was the character models. The Gamecube was a pretty nice machine with some impressive specs, but it's sales go to show that even if Nintendo created a powerful machine, doesn't always translate to sales. Does anyone know if they've attempted to update the controls for this remake?
Sorry for double pist
Yes there are gonna be 2 control options modern one and classic
It does look good on GC. I can tell a decent sized difference in gameplay. The character models are much better and jaggies are gone. The prerendered assets and cutscenes are still pretty much the same which is to be expected.
If I'm not mistaken they gave it re6 controls as well
Fuck Capcom. I can barley tell the difference, which is sad on so many levels. They need to build from the ground up for any REMAKE of a game that came out before 2007. They upped the resolution... WOW. We as gamers, can't feed into this shit and let companies get away with this.
This was originally the remake of the Resident Evil... a quite substantial one. What now we need a remake of a remake ? I don't care much for remakes either as they are usually just cash-ins but I never played this or the original RE so I'm looking forward to it, the horror genre has turned into crappy action games this will be a refreshing change.
It was a damn good remake of the PS1 version on Gamecube (same with Metal Gear Solid Twin Snakes). I'm not saying Capcom should keep rebuilding the same game, but if they are going to keep milking us with old ideas, the least they could do is build a game around the new consoles. Imagine the gameplay, physics, social aspects, etc... that can be incorporated in todays powerful machines.
Its a Remaster not a full remake.....
@MrChicagoWind's Reply I completely agree, we should be getting a lot more than just a boost in resolution and modified textures but obviously its cheaper for them to remake an old game and change as little as possible, thats why they do it. Either way its a terrific series Resident Evil well the old one are anyway and I have never played RE1 so I look forward to this particular remake.
Looks like a PS360 HD Remaster, more than a PS4 Remaster. My guess is it's going to be $20 on PSN and XBL like RE4 was, which is more understandable if so.
You must be blind, this is coming from someone who doesn't care for capcom at all. If you want to talk about upping the resolution look at Resident Evil Code Veronica "HD" and Resident Evil 4 "HD" (Notice the quotes). This actually has some work done to it, not just rereleased on a system with a 360p difference.
The PS4 version has superior IQ.
GameCube was around in ps2 era so you would hope so.
It's not worthy of even being called a remake, it's barely a remaster with upped resolution of a game from not one but two (can be counted as three if we consider the ps1 version) generations ago, Capcom just want to gain as much money as possible with the absolute minimum effort, but hey, if people keep buying their shit..
This is called a "remake" wtf there's barely any difference. Capcom are some of the laziest devs around. They re-released Resident Evil 4 like 3 times and I couldn't tell the original ps2 version apart from the "remaked" others.
Don't you mean the original GC version? RE4 was on the GC, then PS2, then Wii, then HD on PS3 (I think) and then PC.
Correction, ps2's version was a very lazy port of GameCube's version, which had pre-rendered cut-scenes compared to GC's real-time. http://beyond3d.com/showpos...
What the hell is this, there is hardly any difference?! This had better be really cheap or I'll just buy it on GC!
I'm happy enough with the look of the PS4 version. The Gamecube version looks murky as hell on my HD tv, so it will be nice to play the game again with sharper graphics and better lighting. I hope we don't have to pay full retail price though.
Hope this isn't 60$. Doesn't look like that big of an update.
I dunno... If it's around 15-20usd, I might buy it. Just because I never played the "original" cube version. If they still up the visuals a little bit, I'd be ok with it.
Never got to play the GC remake so looking forward to this :) hope they do zero too
K this is clearly a very LAZY port. And how the hell are they expecting to release this on PS4 in this state?
They should have built it from the ground up, but at least we know this will be a great game.
Capcom is just aiming for the easy money on this, as you can see the difference between a 12 year old console is insignificant, they just put out their old code put some textures code in it and thats it, at least they should added a free roam camera. Capcom will never ever change their ways if people support this, this damn game shouldn't cost more than 10 bucks now.
Wish they gave the option of playing it in it's native aspect ration without cropping! Edit: Wait a minute? So the PS4 version will have a 4:3 mode?
It's not cropping If there changing the native aspect ratio to 16:9
Ign confusing the gaming community yet again.... capcom never said this was a full on remake its a Remaster of the gamecube RE game i am surprised you people do not know the difference from a HD remaster and a full on remake its quite sad.... !
>comparing game cube to ps4... should be wii to ps4 since wii port supported 480p game cube did not.
Gamecube did support 480p. http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
Not Resident Evil, that game its not on the list as 480p 16:9
GC version of the RE game did not even if the console itself did
GameCube was a beast
Remember when Nintendo had it's own strength back in the old days, [email protected]#$ sales figures, it was a beast console.
All the retards claiming there is hardly any difference, try setting the video to 1080p and actually watching it past the first 50 seconds. The difference is huge.
Why can't this be on a disc? (Retail copy)
You can import the disc from playasia. It have english dub & sub. The standard edition is $35 and the collectors edition is $50 http://www.play-asia.com/re... http://www.play-asia.com/re...
Thank you😃..but I wanted the ps4 version
thats a huge difference didnt relize it looked that bad on the gamecube when I played it back then
