Resident Evil 3 Remake Was Sold For $60 Despite Marketing Concerns

It appears that CAPCOM was internally aware of the short length of Resident Evil 3 Remake and were even warned by the Marketing department that the game's 5 hour length was "very lean for a single-player game" and the marketing team recommended a lower price range for better sales.

Half the price for half the game would have been better $80 Canadian new for half a game really disappointed me. Shame because I love the original RE3 I have it on PS1, Dreamcast and Gamecube as well I was wanting an RE3 remake since the RE2 remake was very good. I get my wish it looks good love Nemesis and find out its a half baked game because they cut out some content. I would love it if Capcom would remake Dino Crisis still love that game to death as well.

To make matters worse " promotional tactics including mentions of a fake leak spread by CAPCOM themselves that will “antagonize core fan base right from the start”."

We suspected game studios did this. Here is more confirmation.

Of course. Not all leaks are intentional, but I think a lot of employees aren't purposely trying to destroy a good reveal. The only time I can think recently of a disgruntled empoyeee wanting to do that is with battlefield 2042 or the last of us part 2 last year.

It wasn’t just that the physics and gore was a massive downgrade from RE2 Remake

Neonridr49d ago

good news is you can get it off PSN for like $25 now or $35-ish off Amazon if you prefer physical. So it's less than half price now :D

Silly gameAr49d ago

It was on sale for 17.99 in the last PSN sale, so people could have got it for much less than half price if they wanted to.

Neonridr49d ago

@Silly gameAr - yeah this is Canadian that I'm quoting, so even cheaper in the US

@Neonrider

My best friend is from Canada. She just recently got a PS5. I know the US dollar is equal to 1.28 in the Canadian dollar. Honestly, I'm not sure if that's a good thing or bad thing. She doesn't seem to mind. She's a bigger gamer than me.

Neonridr48d ago

@Silly gameAr - yeah it just means that if games cost $69.99 in the US, they cost $79,99 up here (for new game prices)

Should of been $30 tbh in my opinion.

If they didn't shoehorn in that multiplayer mode it probably would have. But they knew the multiplayer was trash and wouldn't sell, so why not combine it with a short single game and list it at full price.

I got the whole package for $15 last black Friday. Glad I waited. Campaign was short, and never touch the multiplayer.

I reckon the game deserves it. They made the game from the ground up. *Incoming*

SDuck49d ago

"incoming" a simple: yeah, every game that gets released with a price lower than $60 is also built from the ground up

roadkillers49d ago

Looks at the GTA Remaster trilogy**

Yeah, from the ground up...

Venox200849d ago

Why I have a feeling this was a sarcasm :) they reuses too many things from RE2 remake to build this game

Muigi49d ago

Which used assets from 7 lol.

*throws a tomato* SinisterMister appears impassible. “proceeds to throw a turd*

Profchaos49d ago (Edited 49d ago )

I grabbed it for $10 for that price it's great I wouldn't want to pay full price for it.

The problem for me wasn't the deviation from the source material it was more the lack of spec ops combined with a 5 hour play time didn't sound like it should be a full price game. So I'd agree with their marketing team

autobotdan49d ago

Could have been a 30 dollar Resident Evil 2 Remake Expansion lol
