Will you re-buy and what do you hope will be included?
So we all know now HD versions of RE4 and CVX are coming to 360 and PS3. For those few that haven't played them before this'll be a great oppurtunity to play what will most likely be the best versions. But these games already have multiple releases and it's safe to say a lot of us probably own more than one version already. I myself have RE4 for the GameCube and PS2, and find myself already debating on whether to make a third purchase. The news just broke and I think all we know at this point is they'll be in HD and have Achievements/trophies. I'm betting that will be all that it is, but still, there's the possibility we could see new or tweaked stuff. So where do you guys who already own these games stand? What will it take for you to buy again? Hoping for new or tweaked gameplay?
CVX is a good game, got it for PS2, but I don't hold it in the same high regard the rest of the RE community seems to. Infact, along with Zero, probably my least favorite of the core RE games. So for me there's only RE4 to think about.
The easiest thing to ask for is an online co-op mode for the Mercenaries. That'd be cool, and as crazy as it sounds if they did that I'd really like split-screen. Archaic, I know, but the few times my brother comes over we always end up either switching off RE4's mercs or split-screen on RE5's and have a blast. So it'd be great to tackle RE4's at the same time.
While easily one of my favorite games, it isn't perfect. Even when it first came out the one thing that kinda bothered me was not being able to switch weapons on the fly. It'd be cool if they allowed us to map weapons/items to the D-pad like we can in RE5.
A modern "shooter" control scheme would be nice too. That's really being nitpicky but every time I replay RE4 I hit L1 in an effort to raise my gun only to have him whip out the knife.
Anyways, like I said, I'm betting it'll just be what we already know. But we can always hope.
" I don't think there is a need for a "modern shooter" control scheme. The original control scheme was good. "It did work fine on the gamecube controller, though I wouldn't mind if they swapped a few things around, I don't want a full-blown Gears of War control scheme, but I don't really care for shooters where the trigger is mapped to a face button either.

I'd buy RE4 the day of release if it wasn't out the same day as Gears 3. I love that game so much I can't help but get it again in HD. Code Veronica would have to be a different game though for me to buy that, Hate that game so much.
It seems really odd that Code: Veronica X is paired with RE4 but I guess it gives gamers the chance to play it since it's not well known in the franchise. I wish Capcom would do to their older RE games what they did with the GCN version of RE1 and just completely redo the visuals.
I probably beat RE4 20 times or more in high school (RE is my favorite series I've beat 2 way more) owned both the GC and PS2 versions and I'm gonna download it for 360. Own both consoles but I the 360 controller is closer to the Game Cube controller and that controlled a lot better than the PS2 version.
They've already said it has all the content that was present it the Wii version is whats included. Nothing new but an HD upres and achievements/trophies. I havn't played the game in 4 years and Code Veronica X in even longer. I'm more interested in CVX because it was the dark horse of the main series I only played through it to completion twice and didn't like it very much due to its weird difficulty spikes. Now that a lot of time has been put between then and now I wanna see if my opinion changes.
I'm kind of disappointed they are deciding to go with $20 a pop for each one. It should have been $15. Twenty bones seems a bit high for a 7-10 year old PS2 game. Prince of Persia was $15 a piece and Beyond Good and Evil was $10.
I was thinking about re-buying it but am not sure. Having bought it on the Gamecube and on the Wii, I think maybe I will wait and see if they ever have a sale. Knocking it down a few bucks would be nice because I would like to have it on my Xbox.
@Axxol said:Playing Resident Evil 5 and using the trigger to shoot feels absolutely terrible in my opinion. All they really have to do is use the control scheme options in Resident Evil 5." I don't think there is a need for a "modern shooter" control scheme. The original control scheme was good.
