Resident Evil's HD remaster, the upgraded and updated version of the seminal survival horror game, has sold more than 1 million copies globally since its release in late January, according to creator Capcom.
I wonder how many of them were new players, and how many of them got it for nostalgia's sake.
I think the majority of them are older players.
Probably, but the redesigned controls do help new players.
people can dismiss the remasters all they want, there is a demand for them. obviously most of us look forward to new games but i see no reason why much like movies there can be upgraded games too as technology advances. what they do as well is bring new interest into those ip's and perhaps renewed interest in making new entries. or help fund totally new projects.
I bought it for nostalgia but I'd imagine there were quite a few new players to this game. You have to remember it was originally released only on the GameCube which didn't really have a huge install base.
I got it mostly for nostalgia but the game was still kick ass.. even though it took a bit of effort to get used to the saving with ribbons, because most new games make it too easy nowadays. Infact.. I just got xbox one controller for PC.. but I played res evil with my xbox 360 controller with d-pad. People say that d-pad is much better in xbox one controller but I tried it in that game and it kinda feels weird because it isn't as easy to you know, circle the d-pad, but new control scheme is good with analog stick.
i can tell you right now that i bought it for nostalgia sake. i havent played re since ps1 days. the experience was wow. i enjoyed it.
1 million copies across 5 different platforms..
1 million copies is pretty good For 13 Years Old Game and WorldWide Digital Release .
I guess so.
They could've reached the goal faster of it were also on Wii U
great! now give us a ps4 RE0 :) PLZ
Capcom. We like the old RE. Why is that hard to believe? No more RE 4-6 crap. More 0-3 (and Code Veronica). Also, online HD Outbreak series (and a new entry). Do it.
Now please remake RE1-2 and 3
RE0, 2 & 3* A re-release of Code Veronica wouldn't go a miss either, that game was one of my favourites.
But let's have it as a proper remake.
I adore the game on GCN but this really should have hit more consoles sooner. I feel like the only thing this game needed to sell the million was avilability.
I would love to see some stats regarding completion, how many of those 1 mil finished the game and how many made it through 50%, 25% of the game etc. Playstation trophies are great as you can look up these kinds of stats, really interesting to see how far people get in hard games.
A classic masterpiece
