Although Resident Evil 5 is selling quite well on the Playstation 3 and XBox 360, the game could have done even better if Capcom ported it to the Nintendo Wii.
because RE5 is actually an amazing AAA blockbuster third party title. Its not possible for that to happen on wii. Thats like saying 2+2=5. Edit:lord_of_balrogs speaks the truth.
I thought you were being sarcastic, but then I realized you weren't. Oh god.
Resident Evil 4 says hello btw... Personally, I wouldn't want RE5 on the Wii either. I don't want a graphics downgrade regardless of the controls. If Capcom wants to port RE5 they should make sure to release it for the eventual Wii HD. Also, what do people think about the Dead Space game for the Wii? If its good it might change my perspective on whether or not the Wii could do RE5 justice.
I disagree with the first comment. They could make a engine that would work for 3 Xboxes, which in other words, is as powerful as the Wii. You would then have the graphics down. You could add the Wii controls and Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. Friends codes could be a problem, but Capcom could use a similar Monster Hunter 3 service (without Pay & Play) or just use the Friend Codes. The game would sell very well on Wii. Remember, Wii owners like Nintendo franchises, the Call of Duty series, and ZOMBIES!!!
"1 - thats not possible because RE5 is actually an amazing AAA blockbuster third party title. Its not possible for that to happen on wii. Thats like saying 2+2=5. Edit:lord_of_balrogs speaks the truth. " Then how come resident evil 4 sold so well? Even tho it was a port..... Mad world is another example of a AAA 3rd party game,...no more hereos, zach and wiki. Take your hate somewhere else. Also as a side note, playing thru the resi 5 demo i couldnt help but notice how sluggish the controls were compared to the resi 4 set up with the remote. But i guess your too blind to see that.
If they actually did a good port, I'd buy it on the Wii, as I prefered RE4 on Wii than RE5, control wise.
I'm with STK026 on this. I would buy it also. It would be like them putting Res 4 on the PS2 yet the Wii would give us the added fun of the res 4 Wii mote shooting. That would be a very hardcore thing for capcom to do. They done things like this before. It would be a lot of work but the res 4 wii make people would be completely hooked game play wise. 1 million+ sells are in the bag, res 4 put a smile on every ones face. with it being a new title i'm sure it could possibly get some gamers who can not afford the HD consoles also. If Capcom of America did the port I would give them some credit for their last public statement.
RE 5 devs have already said it would not be possable for RE5 on Wii, why debate this article if it's never going to happen!
s8anicslayer they said the same about res evil 4 on the PS2 vs GC. Yes it was horrible looking but the PS2 owners ate it up back then!
I've never heard a dumber thing in my life. If it's a straight port the Wii could not handle it. Look at Dead Rising Wii. "Earlier this year, they released Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop, a downgraded Nintendo Wii port of the Xbox 360 game." And it sucked. Buy a 360 or PS3 if you want the game, don't claim you want the game and then when it comes out cry that it sucks.
RE5 is RE4 with updated graphics. It's as easy as that. Just port it to the Wii and dumb down the graphics a bit. comparison video time: http://www.gametrailers.com...
Lord, Deadrising used an engine(RE:4) that was not designed/optimized for something like a hivesystem. There are Ps2 games out there that render more than 100 enemies on screen. Its because of the fact the engine is designed with that in mind. Your comparison fails. Also Smack is right, this game does not offer anything new, only a new jacket. " don't claim you want the game and then when it comes out cry that it sucks" Your logic is so superb, especially when you consider the fact people thought RE:4 on the Wii was the BEST version thanks to the control scheme. Now look at that video, how is it going to "suck"? When basically its almost the same game.
5 disagrees and no counter argument. Go to hell N4G.
N4G is hell,Sidar :D Anyway I agree with you and Smacktard on this one.
The fanboys come out in droves. They have nothing more to say than "UH... NO U" Great argument. Lovin' the disagrees, but no counter-arguments.
"Your logic is so superb, especially when you consider the fact people thought RE:4 on the Wii was the BEST version thanks to the control scheme." Ahh its refreshing to know at least some people on here have a brain.
Guys it's not just the graphics the Wii couldn't handle (Wii fans claim that it's as strong as the original xbox, that I don't believe, I haven't seen one Wii game rival Halo 2 in graphics yet) its also the physics. Just compare the headshots between RE5 and RE4, there is so much more detail in RE5, furthermore look at the exploding barrels. In RE5 it actually looks like an explosion with smoke curling up, compared to RE4's sudden gout of 1 second flame then it vanishes. I mean look at Capcom's last port from an HD console to the Wii. Dead Rising Chop Till You Drop sucked. http://www.youtube.com/watc... Those aren't zombies. Those are manequins.
" I mean look at Capcom's last port from an HD console to the Wii. Dead Rising Chop Till You Drop sucked. " Ignoring what I said are we? Also all that "physic"-smysick could easily be fooled on the eyes if developers find clever tricks. Capcom did an amazing job on the GCN version( the original) and now the Wii has more power and it is pretty much more efficient there is no one here who can claim it can't do things like the headshot or barrel explosion. Cause no one here developed for the Wii, period. So wether is true or not no-one can say. " RE4's sudden gout of 1 second flame then it vanishes. " also, Graphical particles =/= physics. Even if RE5 on the Wii wouldn't match the graphical point of the PS360 version, the user interface for gameplay would be enhanced. RE4 was originally a GAMECUBE port, you can't claim they can't do more on the Wii.
Dead rising was a next gen game ported to an engine made to run on PS2, not the much more powerful Wii. Did anyone really think an engine made to run on 233mhz was going to do a game justice that was made to use at least 1ghz? Sorry but if you're pulling dead rising up as an example of anything you really have no proof. Its not the Wiis fault they used a PS2 engine and even on the PS3 a PS2 engine game will look like crap.
The Wii is as powerful as 2 Xboxes and 2 PS2s, which is 3 Xboxes. Don't believe me, read the link: http://revoeyes.blogspot.co... Also, anyone who clicks disagree is a fanboy. These are COLD facts.
@ Steven Colbert: N4G is hell, but that is why it is so fun!!!
lord_of_balrogs exploding barrel have nothing to do with actually game play. They could replace the "curling smoke" with the smoke from res 4 and it would not matter to me. I don't play these games for physics which are not even accurate any way. I play them for the game play. Capcom has shown they can port a high end product down to a lower spec system. They did it with the GC and the PS2. Being able to aim at the giant with the ax would be way better than running around with analogs to aim. Yes I have played Res evil 5. Capcom knows it could do this but I'd rather them pour time into making some thing new.
Why do you people care if it does come to the wii? You obviously dont own a wii, so dont friggin protest it! Capcom doesnt care what you douchebags think anyways! If RE5 only came to the wii, then you wouldnt be saying "DUHHH LETS KEEP IT ON THE WII. I DONT WANT IT ON THE 360 OR PS3."
Buddy if it was on the Wii first I wouldn't want it on the 360 or PS3, it would take at least 2 years to upgrade it to hi-def graphics.
What...? So if the new Conker game (judging by your avatar, you like conker) came out 2 years from now, you wouldnt want it? Dont really get your logic behind that.
no one is whining for 'no more heroes', 'red steel', 'madworld', etc. The wii has it's exclusives and the ps3/360 have theirs. If you wanna play all the greats game this gen you need more than one system. Owning a wii limits you from a lot.
uh forgive me if i am mistaken but the wii can't even handle the RE5 main menu never mind the full game as the producers have stated!
hahahaz.. did you figure this out yourself or somebody told you so?
If Wii's hardware was up to par I would be all for it. Could of enjoyed a release along side the other guys.
The wii doesn't sell games. RE5 sold more on PS3
the Wii doesn't sell games? I'm a PS3 fan as well, but that statement is full of fail
I would purchase the Wii version of RE5 in a heartbeat.The motion controls are easily convincing to get it day one.I rented the 360 version of RE5.I would purchase day one the Wii version if it ever comes out.
Good lord, I love this game!
The Wii is to underpowered to truly allow the game to shine. The Wii is fun, but it was not designed for high end graphics.
Funny how not one HD game made this gen can shine like SMG did. Highest rated game so far still this gen. Followed by what? Oh another SD game by the name of Zelda.. Hmmm yeah dude games really need High end graphics to really shine. That's why games like Wow on the PC have more players than Crisis? How MKWii outsold any game on an HD console and how SMG got higher reviews than all of them...
but for those that do and they dont have a ps3 or 360..why cant they get it? i still think they will get their own version..its not gonna be RE5 a port
I can get any version I want, as Im not a blind fool who locks himself into one system only (this is directed at the people that are stupid enough to think wii owners only own a wii...like a fanboy would think)
I would buy this game if it came to the Wii. Graphics ain't everything, I really liked the controllers in RE4 on the Wii.
are you kidding me? you liked it? I was all over the damn place, couldn't aim straight and the only thing creative was ::shake shake shake and shake a bunch more to run from boulders::
" couldn't aim straight " Seriously thats just you then.
"are you kidding me? you liked it? I was all over the damn place, couldn't aim straight and the only thing creative was ::shake shake shake and shake a bunch more to run from boulders" Actually i thought the controls and aiming made the game way to easy because of how accurate it was (you do realize u have to work with the sensor bar properly before u get your accuracy>>>?). And i LoveD how u could shake it down then up to reload. But i guess it depends on the person, i mean to alot of u it is a "toy" so surely it couldnt be that hard for all you "hardcore"....*cough *.... gamers to get the hang of.
If you cant point straight it is hardly the Wiis fault. It wasnt really mean for those with physical handicaps. Anyone who cant do that must be, because my 4 year old nephew has already mastered the art of point and click. It is really sad how bad some of you will make yourselves look in order to trash something you have probably never touched.
Capcom has other, more important things to do... like shampoo their hair...
and dry it with $100 bills
erm.. are you speaking on behalf of capcom or for yourself?
Because the game is a major AAA title for 2009
yawnz.. and its not exclusive to any console. dude, bad argument there.
Just because a system doesn't have killer graphics, doesn't mean that it sucks. You didn't say the same thing about the PS2, didn't you? The Xbox was around 5-7 times as powerful as the PS2. The PS2 had a processer around 189 MHz, and the Xbox had 733 MHz. Did the PS2 have high quality games?? Yes. The Wii is going to have AAA titles this year. In fact, it already has. Here is a list: The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess Metroid Prime 3: Corruption Super Mario Galaxy Super Paper Mario Resident Evil 4: Wii edition No More Heroes Okami MadWorld Call of Duty: World at War The Godfather Medal of Honor: Heroes 2 Duh. The Wii is getting: The Conduit, MadWorld, Overlord: Dark Legend, Cursed Mountain (looks great), and Muramasa: The Demon Blade. Anyone who clicks Disagree apparently believes that these games don't exist and can't accept their awesomeness. The Conduit will be a GOTY contender. If you don't like the Wii, don't even come to the Wii section. Complain about the fact that the PS3 isn't getting Fallout 3 DLC or something like that!!! SHUT UP!!!
wish they would port the t-virus to the Wii
If the Wii got it I wouldn't play it, I HATED RE4 for the Wii, the controller created tension and made it scary but only because I sucked! I couldn't aim straight, I was totally all over the place.
Then you suck, EVERYONE(yes, everyone) that played the game said it made the game very easy, almost too easy. Anyone with basic hand-eye coordination could pick up and master the controls in at least an hour. The only ones that said the controls sucked were people who could not play it. And seriously you cannot tell me that RE5 is superior in the controls in terms of smoothness.
All I can say is RE:4 and 5 feel the same, true the X360 version was better looking, but really didn't feel like a Resident evil title...more like a new IP, and that the Wii version of RE:4 won't easily be beat, as it felt more epic and handled like no other game. But the Logic from Capcom makes sense, Why waste time Porting something that you could play on the higher end consoles when you can re-create old games as they've been doing with all these new remakes, besides Capcom lost the edge on the Wii, since Sega has cornered that market, and the only decent title coming out from them in Monster Hunter 3 which might not even make it to the states.
not gonna happen. Its just too much for the wii to handle. I loved RE4 on the wii too. aren't there rumors about a code veronica remake or something? (I could be mistaken) - I mean that should hold off wii RE lovers long enough for them to save up some dough for a ps3 or 360 if they really wanna play it that bad anyway.
They should do it umbrella chronicles style. Cuz there is no way the wii can do it.
pretty pathetic how people here are thinking of a 1:1 port... If its gonna be a 1:1 port then why even talk about capcom "should" port it...If it were to be a 1:1 port nothing would be stopping capcom to release the game for all 3 on the same day.
I put the .. so you guys can fill in the good games that are coming to the wii. Why do wii owners even want this game?
Seeing as Capcom has operated in the past, I wouldn't be surprised if they did bring RE5 to the Wii. Honestly though, the game was pretty weak, no where near as great as 4 was, so if they don't bring it over...whatever.
First u say:- "21 - idiot nintendo fanboys no one said the wii cant get a good game, Then u say this directly afterwards:- "just the power of the wii wont allow it" ??????? So the wii can get good games....but because it has "bad" graphics it cant have good games. Thats basically what u just said. Who r u calling an idiot>>? "thats like puttin resident evil 4 ported to the ps1," Well they are putting a GTA on the DS with n64 graphics>>? Im sure it can be done. They put mortal kombat 2 on the gameboy, and for its time was an excellent port. "no one wants to make a gorgeous game ugly, even if it wud sell well. " Well FF7 was a gorgeous game....in the cut scenes...until the in-game graphics kicked in (quite ugly..jagged edges, box and rectangle shapes for body parts) yet its classed as one of the best FF games ever. Hypocrites.
no one said the wii cant get a good game, just the power of the wii wont allow it, thats like puttin resident evil 4 ported to the ps1, no u just dont do that. stop wishin, when the next nintendo system comes out then it can get a port, on the wii no. no one wants to make a gorgeous game ugly, even if it wud sell well. wud u take ur best drawing and erase it just to draw it like a 3rd grader? nope
i guess i would since i want the game to be on the wii. so whats next?
well if that's how you feel then i guess 'chop till you drop' is right up your alley. have fun with that
erm.. why did you bring up 'chop till you drop'?? since like you have found a reason to chop me. LOLx.. yup i had fun with that game already. also capcom made a little mistake in the wii version of the game. there is a part with lotsa zombies. mind you. guess they forgt to take that part out ; ) whats next??
People that wanted to play the game may already bought it on 360 or PS3. I don't see a lot of people wanting to play the game on watered down graphics just because of the controls (But maybe some people will). The Dead Rising port sucked, it had like 20 zombies at screen and you couldn't take photos!!. I don't care about the improved controls, wich don't add much to the experience, but the game was supposed to be about being overwhelmed by zombies! (And being able to take photographs, since the main character is a journalist). Just leave RE 5 as it is now, Capcom. And the game wouldn't sell well. The only games that sell well on the Wii are WiiSports and Wiiplay xD lol j/k ninties, don't kill me :'3
i gotta admit i think re plays way better with the classic controller on the wii, im not big on pointing and shooting. Not saying it doesnt work in the game, i just don't like it at all. I prefer a standard controller anyday over motion controls. Except for corruption. retro nailed it with that game.
re5 would be a disaster on the wii. If people want the game, save up some money and buy a 360 or a ps3, its never coming to the wii and if it does it's gonna be a complete mess. I don't whine that my ps3 doesn't have zack and wiki or no more heroes. How wii fans get off on whining for games that have no purpose being on the wii is beyond me. It goes both ways for 3rd party games this generation.

"If people want the game, save up some money and buy a 360 or a ps3, its never coming to the wii and if it does it's gonna be a complete mess." what if we already have a 360 and ps3? "'I' don't whine that my 'ps3' doesn't have zack and wiki or no more heroes. How 'wii fans' get off on whining for games that have no purpose being on the wii is 'beyond me'." you just did.
"you prefer standard controller to motion controls, you shldnt be here. "except for corruption"?? LOLx oh come on.." i shouldnt be here? why, i've had a wii since launch. as far as the controls for re4 go, im not shooting into the sky and whatnot, its easy to get headshots, i just prefer the classic controller. If you read my post i wasn't even bashing the motion controls for re4, i was just stating that i prefer the classic controller for re games. and no i wasn't whining that no more heroes and zack and wiki aren't on the ps3/360, i was bringning up a valid point that some 3rd party games don't come out on all the systems. i already have zack and wiki. stop being such a blind fanboy.
i honestly dont even want this game, i have been playing this on the 360 and its really nothing that special and doesnt really even feel like a RE game. Its light throughout the whole game besides one part,that part being really good though with the lantern, and the controls are pretty gimped(i cant run and shoot). I would rather play a remake of an old RE than this one.True RE5 does look great and some of the effects are really good but for some odd reason it just doesnt feel like a RE game to me,although i will admit the story is pretty cool,putting Jill in the game was a good touch, but overall i wasnt that impressed so no i could care less if the game got ported because honestly i wouldnt buy it. I feel this game is selling off of brand name seeing as how i had more fun with Bioshock and Dead Space than this and those sold less copies in the same amount of time as RE5.Atleast in Dead Space i can walk and shoot, what a concept.
If capcom desn't port it then it just shows that they are losing fith in the res evil series. Game have been ported to every type of computer. If the developer and publisher believes in the title then you will see it on the Wii. I'm not such why a port would be so far. changed the level design a little and you have your self a new game almost. Hell just give us res evil 6 then! I'm glad they did this for the HD systems I have always wondered what it would look like with more power and now i've seen it I'd rather have a Wii version with better controls.
so the wii get's one freaking resident evil game and now controls are better across the board on the wii. Go away. People have been playing re games just fine without motion controls for over 10 years. Go out and buy another system if you want re5 so bad, or if you want a buddy system for re just wait for zero to come out in america with motion controls added. Everyone knew re5 was coming to the ps3/360, not the wii. Plan ahead people.
