Capcom: Resident Evil 4, 5 and 6 are heading to next-gen consoles this year

  1. Fans of the Resident Evil franchise have something to cheer about today as Capcom announced that three popular Resident Evil games are heading to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One later this year.

    Resident Evil arrived on the original PlayStation in 1996 and is considered by many to be the defining game in the survival horror genre. There have been numerous sequels, prequels, remakes, comics and full-length movies over the years. As of September 2013, the franchise had sold over 60 million units worldwide.

    Last year, we learned that Capcom approved a remake of Resident Evil 2. This, of course, came after the release of the HD remake of the original earlier in the year. And in September, Capcom announced a new physical disc bundle for fans called the Origins Collection that includes remastered versions of the original game and the Resident Evil 0 prequel.

    The fun gets started on March 29 with the arrival of Resident Evil 6 followed by Resident Evil 5 this summer. That leaves Resident Evil 4 to launch in the fall. Interestingly enough, Capcom elected not to release the titles in chronological order but I digress.

    Capcom says all three games will be offered digitally for $19.99 each. Those in the Americas will also have the option to buy physical disc versions (people still do that, right?).

    This is what milking a digital cow looks like.

    You better believe people still buy physical myself included. In fact the day they stop physical copies will be the day I dont play games anymore. By then Ill have such a large collection I might have time to play them all.

    What next gen consoles? I haven't seen any rumors or announcements of them yet. If they mean current gen then consoles maybe they're thinking it's still 2012.

    I'm pretty sure all of these titles have already been released for the PC.

    RIGHT?! I returned my Steam copy of SFV cause its a giant turd in its current state, but I'll pick it up again in June if it's actually better than it was on release.

    RE4 was one of the best games I've ever played.
    Didn't play 5 or 6, but they both looked terrible.

    5 was pretty decent and I enjoyed 6 but not nearly as much as 4 the REmake or 2. I would at least try 5 as its incredibly cheap on Steam.
