Personally I can't see all that much wrong with it myself.

Somehow, I think 'some' people look way too closely at opening scenes like this hoping to spot some flaw. While the game its self will not consist of this as gameplay, I can't see how this will matter with regards to the "game" as such . .

But I'm easily pleased.

johover1123330d ago

Who the hell cares about that, it's probably just a 10 second cutscene of the intro of the game, who cares. when the game is released, it is still going to sell millions and probably be chosen for game of the year .....again. Oh! and BTW, thanks Xbox for bringing gaming standards down, if Resident Evil 5 was a PS3 Exclusive it would look beyond better than that. (cough cough look at Metal Gear Solid 4 compared to any Xbox game cough cough)

"Oh! and BTW, thanks Xbox for bringing gaming standards down, if Resident Evil 5 was a PS3 Exclusive it would look beyond better than that. (cough cough look at Metal Gear Solid 4 compared to any Xbox game cough cough)"

Wow...watch me spin your post...you ready? Oh! and BTW, thanks ps3 for not being good enough and/or not having a bigger attachment rate to hold on to a series that use to be partly a Sony exclusive. (cough cough look at Halo 3 compared to how many people purchased Metal Gear Solid 4 cough cough)

Hmmmm, Bioshock came out how long ago for the 360.......and the ps3 version is having problems with having the same quality....want to explain how the 360 caused a lower standard on that on? Ohh, and its not just a myth...because the company responded to complaints by ps3 owners.

I say all this to say......unless you have proof that the quality will be dropped......stop blindly echoing the sentiments of others.

Nineball21123330d ago

need a cough drop in here?

I agree with XboxOZ360, if that's the worst of it... meh. Who care's? That certainly won't ruin my gaming experience with it by any measure.

I understand what you were doing there...and it was all well and good...

...but his post made logical sense. Yours did not. I don't, in any way, think the 360 is dragging this game down, but it's at least a possibility. If 2K can't figure out how to make a good PS3 port, it's their faults...not the PS3. Bethesda and EA Chicago figured it out. Why don't they just ask Insomniac for help? They even teach a free course to any developer willing to listen. The PS3 not being good enough or having the attach rate to hold onto the series thing...you are aware that Resident Evil 1, 2, 3, 4 and many side-story projects have released on Gamecube, PC, and Gameboy systems, right? Xbox is just getting it because Capcom likes to make money.

The attach rate is the cause of gamers...poor gamers. We don't have money to buy 2 new games every week, trade them in, and buy 2 more. We are GAMERS! Do you understand this? Most Xbox gamers I know were given an Xbox with Halo by their moms and dads for Christmas one year and had no qualms about dissing the rest of the gaming world when they had JUST started getting into it. Am I wrong? Most Xbox 360 gamers are the same way. Other sources of income paid for the system, so they don't see a reason to stop buying games constantly and trading them in.

Gamers keep games because they are good games...games that changed their lives...we don't just trade them in later because we needed that extra 10 bucks for Rock Band 3. Most real gamers aren't rich. What does that leave? Rich kids who are given everything.

Does someone disagree?

mikeslemonade3329d ago

To me the intro and that trailer has made me excited for RE5. The stuff that dissapoints me is demos of the gameplay. The graphics don't look like a 2009 game and none of the gameplay has been different compared to RE4 besides the coop which at this point it looks boring. It's not like we haven't played a coop storyline online before.

N4Flamers3329d ago

@ leon
You contradict yourself in your statement. you say real gamers are poor, and most 360 gamers are rich spoiled kids. Then you say they trade in games cuz they need 10 bucks for rockband or whatever. If they were rich then why would they need ten bucks. Point is your boy got pwned, deal with it. not to mention your trying to imply that its better to not buy alot of games, and trade the ones you dont like for other games. just plain illogical. I guess its people like you that dont buy too many games keeping the ps3 down. I buy enough games to support my system, and I rent most games, but if i buy a game i dont like I trade it in, and im a real gamer.

Lanoire3329d ago

What the hell are people expecting? Its not like multi platform titles set standards or anything.

They dont. Far from it.

Bob Dole3329d ago (Edited 3329d ago )

It's not really a matter of which system is gimping a game. If it's multiplat and it's not a direct port (at least from 360 to PS3 in most cases) it's going to reduce the quality of the overall game. Look at GTA4; if it had been an exclusive on either system it would have been a much better game. Instead Rockstar had to develop two separate versions of the same game at the same time thus reducing the quality of the game overall.

ON TOPIC: BOB DOLE GETS WOOD EVERY TIME HE STOMPS ON A ZOMBIES HEAD! Just thought everyone should know that... wait that's not really on topic is it?? Ok Bob Dole's done.

Sitdown3329d ago (Edited 3329d ago )

You are saying that his post made logical sense that we should say that a game will be of lower quality because of it being release on the 360 as well? If that is the case..then why did you say this, "If 2K can't figure out how to make a good PS3 port, it's their faults...not the PS3." Which means it is not the xbox 360's fault....Capcom has the right to maximize RE5 for each respective console....if they choose not to do that, then it is Capcom's fault.

Moving along...the rest of your post I have no idea what you are talking about. The logic in my statement is that clearly developers know which console gamers are willing to drop their money quicker on. Search the forums and see how many people are willing to buy the 360 version of a game over a ps3 version because of live...because of achievements, the list goes on.......so if ps3 had all this stuff on lock and had a clear advantage over the 360, with it showing more gamers using the ps3 just for gaming.........then the cost/benefit ratio would swing heavily for the ps3, which would give Capcom less of a reason to bring the game to the 360. Games that are released on both consoles often times sells better on the 360...so if Johover wants to blame the 360...lets go a little deeper and blame the ps3 for the things they did wrong...which would have companies opting for non-exclusive 3rd party games.

johover1123329d ago

dude, halo was the same crapy game with more graphics, WHOO HOO! congrats on sales, OH! and BTW congrats on sales of Xbox 360s after the three rings of death WHOO!, yea. dude, Metal gear was about 32 gigs, xbox would NEVER see that in its lifetime. and if you want to talk about sales than look at gta 4 which sold more copies on PS3, or Madden 09 which sold more copies on PS3. sigh i could go on forever. ANYWAY bottom line, resident evil 5 is going to be a awesome game. i just had to talk back to a certain fanboy.

First off, if you think Halo is the same crappy game with more graphics then fine, that's your opinion. I could say "Well, Resistance 2 is the same mediocre Resistance with more graphics." or "MGS4 is the same old boring game with better graphics." but that doesn't make it right cause I said so.

Number two, the typical 'RROD LOLOLOL ALL DAY LONG' thing. The newer 360s with the Japser or Falcon motherboards last almost as long as a PS3 or Wii would. Even then the RROD has nothing to do with the amount of sales.

Number three, MGS4 almost used up the whole Blu-ray disc and Kojima had to cut some things to fit it all in the disc. True about the Xbox 360 not being about to use more than 9GB but it doesn't affect quality.

Number four,
GTA4

Madden '09

Please don't go on forever until you have some real argument. Don't come back to talk to a certain fanboy when you're pretty much a hypocrite. Apparently, "thanks Xbox for bringing gaming standards down" is nowhere close to a fanboy remark.

Sevir043329d ago

the graphics look awesome but to me this isn't a step forward. RE5 is basically RE4 HD with Co-op. the next generation of hardware means when enemies get killed there bodies stay there, they done bubble up and disappear, especially if you are a human being... for PS2, and Gamecube RE4 was exceptional and i knew of the PS2 and gamecube limitations preventing bodies from just staying there.

this is next gen... games like Resistance and gears and Heavenly sword and Fable 2 have it where if an human dies the body stays there they don't just disappear. which was also why i was a bit upset with DMC4, because the creatures certainly had mass but disappeared into thin air, even after their elaborate death animation... It looks and plays the same way with just higher poly counts and better animation.

and i'm sure it'll be the same for the next games that follow the series.

JBaby3433329d ago

Capcom has yet to impress me this generation. They keep ruining (or at least hurting) what could be great games so far. Hopefully this game is clean outside of this.

johover1123329d ago

from what i saw from the trailers and demo videos they do have the same movements as RE4 but hey, never know until the game is released.

OH! and Master Debater, real simple, mind your damn business. A and B conversation C your way out.

Master Debater3329d ago

Oh I'm sorry, did I prove you wrong? Didn't mean to, actually I didn't want to but almost everything that came out of your mouth and fanboyish and wrong that somebody had to correct you and shut you up. You're plain out embarrassing yourself.

DaTruth3329d ago

Anybody who just engaged in that pointless discussion is not a real gamer... They are a fanboy.

johover1123329d ago

lol resistance 2, halo lol no contest (graphic wise) (I didn't play resistance 2 yet). but whatever, nothing is gonna beat metal gear.

Master Debater3329d ago (Edited 3329d ago )

"lol resistance 2, halo lol no contest (graphic wise) (I didn't play resistance 2 yet). but whatever, nothing is gonna beat metal gear."

Are you even listening anymore? Please stop you're making yourself look stupid now. I said your opinion is your opinion, and mine is mine. None of them are right. If my quotation marks in my examples didn't solidify that it was an example then I don't know what will. And you're calling other people fanboys? Please just stop and leave PS3 and 360 out of this topic.

And BTW to the people up there that doubt multiplatform, multiplatform games can raise standards. Look at Assassin's Creed, Great graphics and ambience, it was just too repetitive. Other than that, there's parkour mechanics, the amazing storyline, the combat system, the graphics were astonishing on a HD set up. The draw distance was pretty damn far with no slow down.

Resident Evil 5 is shaping up to be a great game, no matter what. So far it's my anticipated GOTY for 2009. Co-op Resident Evil? Count me in!

johover1123329d ago (Edited 3329d ago )

Back to the subject at hand, yes i think that the resident evil 5 trees might just be a small cutscene and not actually in the gameplay field. for example: in the trailer of star wars the force unleashed, while Darth vader is staring out the window into space, his right hand man comes up behind him. you could clearly see his arm going through darth vaders body but yet again.....it was only a cutscene.

i also believe that it is going to be game of the year.

DG3329d ago

How does this bloggers opinion become news at 500 degrees? Fuq you fanboys drive traffic. No wonder N4G got bought out. $#!T. You guys do understand your all like little slaves paying N4G right. And yes Im jealous for not coming up with the site first.

Bob Dole3329d ago

Even if he agree's to your truce you're outta bubbles aren't you? Bob Dole pitys tha foo' wit no bubbles.

XboxOZ3603329d ago

12/10 mate.

Many of the comments that find fault with someone "picking" on "their" game do come from a disgruntled number of Sony supporters who solidly believe a developer should NEVER cross the fence, no matter what.

Even IF their company is loosing money, even if their favoured developers is not selling the numbers needed to support the HUGE financial outlay they now incur with development of games that the fans DEMAND. Those developer should stay steadfast and not buckle and move across the floor and keep their stockholder happy, who will pull out their support if shares do not rise, but fall due to poor sales figures.

Most definitely, Square Enix, Capcom etc should NEVER taint themselves such trivial matters, and be happy with a small attachment rate, while their "competition" has a solid 8:1 attachment rate and sell several million copies of their games to a huge userbase.

Silly of them, after all, they will "disappoint their fans, who, by the way, are NOT buying the games in the numbers they need for said developer to survive . but what does that matter . . .Sony is god, and all else is trivial.

12/10 mate, good one. Bubbles for you !

Master Debater3329d ago

Well it seems like he's outta bubbles and asking for truce, but if I don't truce it's an automatic win, decisions decisions....

AUTOMATIC WIN!!!! :)

"Number two, the typical 'RROD LOLOLOL ALL DAY LONG' thing. The newer 360s with the Japser or Falcon motherboards last almost as long as a PS3 or Wii would. Even then the RROD has nothing to do with the amount of sales."

REALLY?? you have a time machine and went two-three years into the future?? How can you make such a bold claim like that? According to you not only has RROD been solved but now a 360 will last as long as a PS3?

I love when FANBOYS call other people fanboys. It's just comical.

No I see what he means. Pretty stupid for a company to use this as their opening trailer type thing.

IcarusOne3329d ago

What do you see exactly? I'm looking at a desolate road in Africa. I don't see what's so shoddy, retro, "shocking", etc...

My judgement of a game relies on my PLAYING THE GAME, not how a trailer at TGS opens.

Godem3330d ago

Whoa! Nice find, im quite suprised to see those good old tree's in such a big title. But yeah its not a huge deal to see them in that big shot scene. But the tree's should have been rotated more so you couldn't see the X's

masterofpwnage3330d ago

seriously after resident evil lost the zombies, i feel like im loosing interest in the series fast

ceedubya93330d ago

Resident Evil 4 was a fine game, and this looks to be the best one yet. But you like what you like.

Immortal Kaim3330d ago

these trees would just be placeholders wouldn't they?
