From PS3 Attitude: "Capcom is celebrating the PS3's birthday in an awesomely evil way. Resident Evil 2 is finally being released today on the PSN."
It has been reported that this is the Dual Shock version of Resident Evil 2.
kickass yo. Good 'ol capcom/resident evil days huh.. i liked the 3rd one alot too,but 2nd one was epic. i still love me some old fashioned zombie killin.never gets old i tell u.
How is this RE? I bought the first but the controls are a huge pain in the azz. It's unplayable, I dont want to master those controls. @disagreer It's valid to disagree, but I'd appreciate an answer of sorts for my question.
I agree with you that it takes some getting used to when you have to go back and use PS1-style controls... I wish that they would give an option on these re-releases to use the analog sticks and have a more updated sort of control scheme. I know that it wouldn't be as authentic, but it is tough to go back to those old controls!!
What a classic game! I loved it. RE5 was more like a shoot 'em up game compared to the old RE games!
W T F ! "It seems these will only be coming out to the US store, sorry EU!" W T F ! When Sony said, "PSone classics will be coming to PS store" few years ago the first games that came into mind were RE1, RE2, Crash B, Final Fantasy VII and Soul Reaver. How the fu*** can they not release this masterpiece that is RE2 in EU when the original sales from the PS1 days suggested that the game sold MORE in EU? !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! F U * K THAT!
easy you will get it in eu :D today they released mgs , and soul reaver was before us :D and in near futue we will get vagrant story :D btw , you can't buy it from us store ? i bought few games from us and eu store...
I still have the original copy of my RE2 in min condition.
You can use the analog stick for all PS1 games its very simple all you have to do is press the PS button while in the game go to Controller Settings select the option Switch Analog Mode by default it will be set to Digital Mode, switch it to the second option Analog Mode that then binds your D-pad controls to your Left Analog Stick. I did this for My copy of MGS 1 and Resident Evil 3: Nemesis. *Edit* Okay I was wrong the PS1 software needs to be able to support the Analog Stick for it to work I just popped in my copy of Blood Omen and switch the options with no response. However considering this RE2 is the Dualshock Edition it will more then likely support movement with Analog.
Thank You, now get working on RE3 and Dino Crisis =3
dino crisis!!!!!and chrono cross!!!
We need RE3, only RE I did not finish!!!
Hell. It's about time. I've been seeing this as rumored for weeks on end. Finally, it shows its SCARY face. Can't wait to play it.
This will definitely be purchased today. Now to find the room on my HD.
dood, upgrade that junk... i've got 500GB (380 after formatting) and i NEVER have to worry about space.
Yay! Nice Capcom!
I want this :-( But give Dino Crisis too
Ho snap! .. Dino crisis is DEF welcome to the Playstation store :)
I'll take Part 2. The first one was trying to be survival horror with dinosaurs, but it just wasnt scary. The 2nd went a more action route, and was a better game in my humble opinion even though it dropped 3D environments for 2D backgrounds. While we're at it, get Onimushu in there too. Whats happening with this series Capcom?
Another classic to add to the Playstation catalog.
PS3 - It only plays everything.
I'm going to run out of money with all these great games coming out...
The good ol' Resident Evil days when zombies were zombies AND THEY COULDN'T RUN! ALSO..... They just wanted my brains. haha I make everybody happy!
Yeah, WTF? Since when does decomposition aid muscle growth and speed. Its like George Romero and Tom Savini never existed. AARRRGGGHH ! You edited your post. Now I'm the schuck. Original Post "The good ol' Resident Evil days when zombies were zombies and they couldn't run. "
Europe, and by extension Australia, miss out again. We dont even have MGS yet 4 Fa Sake.
...UK got Metal Gear today, but i don't know how that affects Australia. Just give it a few weeks. We'll get it eventually. Looking out for Abe's Oddysee too!
Oh hell yeah. What a great series that was before Lorne Lanning sold out and ruined it.
how many times did i beat this title ? good for those who haven't layed it yet ( how many are they ? )
I'll say here what I said in the other thread - BEST RESIDENT EVIL GAME OF THEM ALL! And that includes RE4!
I dont usually side with guys with buckets on their heads, but I concur. Have you ever heard of Ned Kelly?
Bush tucker Ned was a famous figure here in Aus land. Real badass renegade who delt with the pigs.
it was an inferior port, but at least i got to play it
AWESOME title. I'm about to play Battlefield Bad Company 2.
What would give me motivation to play these games (even though I love the PS1 claassics already) would be a minor trophy patch for them. Give them like 10 trophys each for us trophy whores and let us be happy :) 6 Bronze 3 silver 1 Gold on each of them, no platinums. I'd burn through many PS1 classics for trophys.
im a HUGE fan of resident evil 2 its my fav in the series and i was wondering if this is containing both discs that had leon and claire seperately on the ps1 and on the gamecube they must of just somehow put them into one disc so has anyone tried it out yet?
more than likely it will be separate discs, you'll just have to hit the ps button to change discs. that's how FFVII and MGS was.
MGS is now on the Aus store I checked this morning.
Yeah Baby. Thanks, bubble for your effort.
Jizz, jizz, jizz. RE2 yes!
i already have it on my shelf why should I buy it again?
It was your decision to wait. Live with it. Part of being a big boy is making big boy choices.
What are you playing today... oh yeah... NOTHING!
Now, if they release RE3, then I'll just buy all 3 together :)
Still playing RE5, loves it
