Did you visit the PS Store yesterday and see a very cheap remake of Resident Evil 4 with a 50% discount for £6.00? Yes you did but RE4 has now gotten a price increase from its originally stated price.
U snooze u lose
so i am guessing before this gen you never touched a game because it didn't have trophies. Damn you missed some classic games its 10 bucks too much i will get it when it under 10. But coming from capcom they have done a very lazy job on this HD remake or whatever you want to call it. Capcom to me has lost the most touch with gamers, don't believe me look at all their extremely talented devs leaving them for western publishers or just forming their own studios. capcom stands for these: make sequels make paid dlc on disk make different editions of games launching MVC after 10 years of wait for full 60 YET SO LITTLE ACTUAL CONTENT and no new Ip's and also make a dead rising game every year from now on here is what they should do: make a real resident evil 6 I like the new look of DMC so good job on that make dead rising more fun cut the crap with taht 36hrs story, i have had enough. give us a real open world zombie survival game make a megaman X game give us GODHAND HD for 9.99 on psn/xblive and invest some into new IP's
@showtimefolks "so i am guessing before this gen you never touched a game because it didn't have trophies. Damn you missed some classic games " Come on man...stop thinking like a child. Trophies are pretty addictive and once they were added , it is hard to play without them. They are a whole other level of immersion and content.
really i wouldn't know i just play games for fun. doing so for 20 plus years. I don't go after the trophies to alter the way i play i am on level 12% trophies wise. its something extra for hardcore gamers but in no way did i have less fun playing MGS4 a few months ago still without trophies. now that's just the way i feel about this to each his own i guess and if a game gets a 9/10 but does not have trophies would you pass on it just because it didn't have trophies
"All of you can shut the h*ll up ...... I bet most of you brought this game for $50 last gen and now your willing to pay $20 or $10 w/e for the same d*mn game but just in HD and with out the extra modes. If I wanted to play Re4 that bad then I'll just pop in the ps2 version in my 80GB PS3 with BC and play it upscaled. You guys are straight up sheep for buying into Capcom laziness there is no excuse why the game don't have a platinum trophy but most of you don't have the skill to collect trophies anyway but thats no reason to hate." I 100% agree with you gape.... To MD you are so wrong its not even funny.... Me and my friends, we try to get more trophies then each other or in some games we help each other come up with ways to unlock them and some trophies can be very fun to try and collect on your own and on top of all that it add to the replay value of a game. But like gape said some people just don't have the skills and they are the one who come up with childish stuff like trophy whore...... trophy whore ~ seriously people? What grown sad lonely man came up with that kid crap?
The Irish store says €14.99 but when you click to buy it it shoots up to €19.99 lol Not worth 20 quid.
Talk about rip offff
Agreed, Oh well i guess ill just get it for my PC or PS2.
I'm not paying 20 euros for a game that I bought 2 times (ps2, wii)
Yeah, it's $30 on the Australian PS Store too. IDK if I'm willing to shell out $60 for two old RE games,even though I want them both.
Maybe that's why the PSN was brought down :P
You know, that was my first thought but then I thought: It was down for 4 hours so they could change the price of one game? Nah, that can't be right.
Waiting for the Super Move edition.
This version does not have Move support? 0 __ 0
Move support for an RE4 HD edition is as obvious as white on rice. Incredible that Capcom believes that so many people would want to rebuy this with so little added features.
I know, right? No Move support & no plat trophy made this one a pass for me. I mean, it couldn't have been that hard to add Move... the game was previously released on the Wii!
I honestly don't see the big deal. Sure Move and trophies should be standard on this obvious cash in, but the game was almost perfect without added chapters or motion controls or trophies that I personally had no problems shelling out the $10 for it (PS+)
Really people. I am a plus member. I bought this game for $9.99, got RE 1, 2 and 3 plus 10 avatars for free! how is that NOT a good deal?
@Zechs34: The thing is that many people already have another version of the game, so why would someone shell out more money (even if is relatively cheap) for the same game they already have just to get a sub-par visual make-over? I still have my GC version & until Capcom gives me a good reason to buy the updated version (ie, more game modes, motion control support, etc.) they will not get more of my money.
I wouldn't even have bought it even with the ps plus discount. With the discount, it comes down to $10 (before the sudden price increase), and I've seen smaller psn games that have more trophies than this game. I wouldn't be surprised if Capcom releases a disc version that includes a full set of trophies, move support, and all (or maybe just some) of the ps2 game modes that they left out. Maybe they'd call it "super resident evil 4 hd". I seriously believe Capcom's a much worse company than Activision. At least Activision doesn't release an "ultimate" black ops version and selling it for full price just 'cause they added extra maps with it. With Capcom, if you want the extra characters, you have to pay for a whole game again.
so true... i took advantage of the free re games....as i beat them all already but hey free games.... but hella disappointing not able to add a plat..... atleast ad like 20+ trophies.... i already own the game and beat it to hell and back... lol.... -___-... damn you capcom!
I didn't make the jump when I should have. Suppose it serves me right.
Hmmm...I don't know why, but when it was first announced that RE4 and Code Veronica would be $20, I assumed that meant together. Not each. I'd love to replay both games. But I don't know if I'm willing to fork out $40 to play two last-gen games that I've already played, tbh. Especially with so little added features or extras.
Holy shit, I just found out both games are $30 each on the Australian PSN. Fuck that shit, man.
Looking forward to Code Veronica
Its at normal price now. The lower price yesterday was a mistake. You snooze you lose!
I'll pass on this one. 11 lame trophies and HD isn't reason enough to pay 20€ for this, especially since my PS2 version has more game modes than this. I was excited by this at first but not so much anymore since Crapcom failed miserably with this by having the worst trophy list I've seen to this day and failing to give us all the game modes that were in the PS2 version and Move support.
The HD version is missing game modes? I didn't know this. Which ones?
After hearing this I'm not surprised seeing that the PSN/XBL version isn't HD at all but an upscaled Gamecube version which had the least modes of play.
I'm not exactly sure, but I've seen and heard many people complain about it missing some modes that were on PS2 version. I've been wondering where's the news on that? I'd actually like real confirmation on that myself too.
Agree about Capcom being god awful....that company makes Activision and Zipper look like saints. Those guys if they could find a way would make every game they sell pay to play. Look out next week for the brand new "Super Duper Alpha" edition to be announced which lets you change the knee pad colors to make an exciting new gaming experience. Capcom you suck! Glad I got to download the Res Evil 1-3 games for free, directors cut is buggier than I remember.
wait what has Zipper done
See socom .com forums for what zipper has done. They have totally F^ the franchise and start to nickel and dime for extra character slots, dlc, gamemodes that should have been in from the start or included with pass. Its not the Zipper of old....
Capcom getting greedy-er as days passes. This kind of attitude encourage piratery even if they think that this method fight against it.
A missed opportunity trophy wise, but I guess we cant have everything unfortunately
Does the xbox360 version have achievements?
It has 100 gamerscore!
i heard it had like 1k.... i dont own the 360.. so iam not to familiar with the achievement lay outs...
Whoops, forgot to ad another zero
Good thing I got it when it was £6
Capcom is the whore of gaming
Personally have no desire 2 re-play this. but that's just rude!
Capcom is a piece of [Insert insult] nowadays, when will they stop? This isn't even a truly reworked version, but an upscaled lazy port. 20e, Shame.
No reason why Move support was not included here. If it does not come out in an update, I'll pass and stick with my GC version. It is so obvious that the Move users are going to want it. I mean come on! Not so worried about all the tropies. At least it got some. Not sure why this is such a big deal. Personally, I think anyone with a large amount of trophies examplifies too much gaming time on their hands. I'm up there at level 13, but it's only because I play a lot of different titles. I don't typically replay a game out to plat, unless I just really dig the game and have fun doing it. If I had a plat for every trophy supported game I have, I'd look like the biggest trophy douchey douchey doo. Just imagine the BO, and bad skin...eeeewww!
Kinda sucks that theres no platinum because Its a full game and its got a fair share of challenges. Im still buying it eventually though...
no real HD, no platinum trophy, no move support who would want to buy this?
I was tempted till I found out it wasn't HD but a crappy up scaling port... Talk about insulting their fanbase, money hungry idiots
The game isn't missing any game modes people. It still has mercenaries and both of Ada's stories Separate Ways and Assignment Ada.. This version's cutscenes actually show the characters with the costume they're currently wearing unlike the Ps2 version.. and it has leaderboards for all three stories. If you've never played it (WTF! wrong with you? lolz) nows your chance. if you already have then stay away, the minor changes aren't worth the $10 in my opinion. ;(
I would buy it anyway, but i have it for the Wii too and completed it. Maybe i change my mind, for the trophies...
Oh Capcom, i used to love you. Why are you trying to steal us every day? I support you since 1991 you know, but i think you're going a little too far these days... sadly.
I have never played it, but I am thinking of getting it.
Worth playing if you haven't already. If you already own a copy though, nothing here justifies the re-purchase based on what other HD Collections are doing for the same price, imo. For one it's recently come to light in reviews that this isn't even true HD. Other contemporary re-releases meanwhile like the GOW Origins Collection go back and meticulously add the extra beef to the picture, up the frame rate, add full trophy support of 36+trophies for replayability, 3D support, and extra video diaries like the GOW dev roundtable or Team Ico roundtable. Even the MGS Collection will add the original MSX games for free. RE4 and CV have none of this, not even Move support, yet want $20. That just doesn't cut it. Even the Sly Collection added Move support mini-games with their own independant set of trophies.
American store original price 20 bucks, + member price 10 bucks. If the price they moved it to is half the price of the whole? Why complain...
