All this Saints Row 2 DLC makes me want The Third now... ARGH!!!

Criminal4690d ago

I think I'm going to pick up Burnout Crash. I know it's a top down version, but I own every game in the series, so I think it's worth trying.

doctorstrange4690d ago

I'm protesting the top downness by not buying

Criminal4690d ago

Nice way to go about your protest, but did you play GTA I and II?

Top down can be great!

doctorstrange4690d ago

But there's a reason why GTAIII is the one that made the series the behemoth it is today.

BigWoopMagazine4690d ago

yeah holy classic zombies batman! My favorite games in the series, all for free and at once! Wait.... I still have these on disc... oh well, free is for me! Digital copies will help further preserve my discs :)

ftwrthtx4690d ago

I love free. My favorite price point.

It's going to be a long two weeks waiting for The Heist.

This hints at continued support for the VR versions of Resident Evil.

Nerdmaster18d ago

And Capcom, being Capcom, chooses to keep the VR versions limited to certain headsets in a niche that is already small.

Babadook718d ago (Edited 18d ago )

They wouldn’t work well on Quest. Not the PlayStation versions at least. Also Sony seems to have helped fund these.

StoriedGamer17d ago

... Maybe not quest standalone due to power limitations, but you do know that all of the modern resident evil games including 2 and 3 remake (which dont have even have official VR versions) are available on PC and are arguably better in almost every way...

The porting process to VR with VR capable engines is so incredibly easy that the cost is negligible really. What's worse is having played the games on psvr and psvr2, the developers did a pretty shoddy job whereas the PC versions are better as the community tackled a lot of the issues in a matter of a few weeks...

Babadook717d ago (Edited 17d ago )

@above.

This is simply not true. Compare RE8 praydog vs the native port to psvr2. The native port is an amazing experience. You’d never want to actually play the pc mod. It’s no where near as good. The performance is not good and is nauseating.

StoriedGamer17d ago

... In what ways is it nowhere near as good? On a decent system it runs incredibly well and even better if you have something good, pushing it way beyond what you get on the psvr2. I've literally played both, and on PC it not only looks better, but runs much better overall on pc. Additionally, you get even more games than the 3 official games over both psvr and psvr2 offered by Capcom (4, 7 which is only psvr compatible, and 8).

Babadook717d ago (Edited 17d ago )

@above

It doesn't actually run better on the PC though. I've heard from many PC gamers who will flat out disagree with you. I've seen top end Nvidia cards drop to below 60 fps (no reprojection either). Hopefully you know the effect that Foveated Rendering has on VR performance.

How far did you make it in the story? If you really claim that the PC can compete on performance show me a professional reviewer who claims that who actually tested a large portion of the game. On top of the performance not being in PCs favour you've got a completely inferior level of interactivity.

Pretty sure it's because they were very well paid to do so in the past I'm sure there's a deal going because Sony sure isn't in a rush to produce games for their own headset
Plus the re games are fantastic in VR

talocaca17d ago

RE4 is absolutely stellar on PSVR2.

Hoping their next title supports it too 👏👏👏

Babadook717d ago (Edited 17d ago )

Indeed. One of the guys seemed to be a big fan of VR.

And this bit pretty confirms there're plans for more RE VR projects.

Once they wrapped up the project, they realized VR was well-suited to the franchise. While they didn’t discuss specifics, Kumazawa says they “plan to undertake more challenges in the future.”

Profchaos17d ago

Was amazing I thought re8 was also just as good to.
