Why Capcom Should Port Resident Evil 5 to the Nintendo Wii

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.

Smacktard3493d ago

I thought you were being sarcastic, but then I realized you weren't. Oh god.

dragunrising3493d ago

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.

SinnedNogara3493d ago

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!!!

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.

N4g_null3492d ago

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.

s8anicslayer3492d ago (Edited 3492d ago )

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!

N4g_null3492d ago

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.

Smacktard3493d ago

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:

ChickeyCantor3493d ago (Edited 3493d ago )

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.

ChickeyCantor3493d ago

5 disagrees and no counter argument.
Go to hell N4G.

TheColbertinator3493d ago

N4G is hell,Sidar :D

Anyway I agree with you and Smacktard on this one.

Smacktard3493d ago

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.

Mini Mario3493d ago

"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.

lord_of_balrogs3493d ago

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.

" 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.

Seferoth753493d ago

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.

SinnedNogara3493d ago

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.

SinnedNogara3493d ago

@ Steven Colbert:

N4G is hell, but that is why it is so fun!!!

N4g_null3492d ago

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."

lord_of_balrogs3493d ago

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.

Maxned3493d ago

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.

hatchimatchi3493d ago

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.

farhsa20083493d ago

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!

nerubii3493d ago

hahahaz.. did you figure this out yourself or somebody told you so?

Solbadguy3493d ago

If Wii's hardware was up to par I would be all for it. Could of enjoyed a release along side the other guys.
