The originals weren't great sellers so the remakes would probably do worse.


I don't know about that, RE REMake did pretty well on sales wise and it got good reviews too.

He's talking about the Outbreak games. IIRC, 1 sold just over 1 million and 2 sold a little over 600k. But I do think that'd double in today's day and age of gaming.

And despite what some people say, REmake and RE0 sold great for their limitations. If you sell 1.25 Million on a console with 20 Million install base, that means that 6% of the people who had that console had that game. Now imagine that attach rate with an instal base of 150 million that the PS2 had, it would've sold 6-9 million. Attach rates count, especially when the console the game is released on sells so low. It had the same attach rate as RE5/6 did on PS360. The old school games will still sell, and there's still a market for them.

I said that earlier Skermac. Capcoms way of "HD-ifying" their games doesn't take much money.


Yeah but it's not just that. They would have to rewrite the netcode too.

Glad to see this positive reception!!!!!!!

As far as HD-ing the games, I once heard that the pre-textured backgrounds (?) would not transfer to PS3.....or something like that? Same with REmake and Zero.

Outbreak isn't prerendered, and even if they were, they could be HD-ified.

I was so happy when I learned the server was online and you could access it with a ps2 emulator...

then I spent 2-3 insufferable hours trying to get it to work and gave up in frustration :/
it's so complicated

Well I got winpcap working. That's a start at least.

Well I managed to get online with a game. I thought I would try a game that still had an official server up first just to test it out and it worked. If I get Outbreak online I'll report back.
