    Good news for all those Resident Evil 1 fans, the game will be remastered on PS4/PS3/Xbox one/PC/Xbox 360 consoles as well as PC. The game will be set as a Digital only purchase so there will be no hard copy available for purchase. The release date is set for early 2015 so no month date yet. Capcom has not released a price yet but sources say it may cost around £23 (around $40 US dollars) sources tell us that it will cost 3990 yen.

    So what do you think, has any excitement filled your mind yet? Below are some before and after shots.

    Looks about the same as if the game were running on Dolphin. But less resource intensive.

    i think a RE 3 remastering would have been more appropriate

    I was hoping they would use their stock renders for higher quality. Even PS1 games and SNES games have a lot of detail in their backgrounds that got smothered during compression and resizing.

    But here it kinda looks like they added a filter to the original, and simply raised the native resolution. I can do that in Dolphin (and better too with a sweetfx profile attached). The staircase comparison is really easy to see this, reminding me of those hx or eagle filters on 2D emulators.

    Can't they just do something more interesting? Like a Reboot or something like Silent Hill did with Shatter Memories instead of just an another remake/port of this game?
    Yes it's fun, but not fun enough to keep playing through over and over again, just because they made it look better or made it portable.

    also the screencaps in the OP looks like the original part of it is was taken with a camera pointing a TV and the HD remaster an actual screenshot, the difference in contrast and color balance is too big.

    Proud to be Portuguese but I am in USA.
    I do not mind to play it because I finished Resident Evil 4-6. I haven't finished 1-3 because I disliked the PSX graphics version of Resident Evil and Resident Evil's controls at all.

    I didn't notice this thread at all - had I seen it, I would include it in the front page post. My bad, kenenthk! ;)

    The first is PsOne CLASSIC, I recall I didn't have a Memory Card at the time, and a friend let me borrow the game.. Shit, fuck, that SNAKE, those one-hit HUNTERS.. And I was re-starting ALL over again.. I had some patience, being 15 yo, I guess.. :o

    I had another friend letting me get GC RE Zero (the next Capcom Hd probably..) and this RE 1 Remake. I played Zero, was okay, bad inventory management without any chests and so few slots, but okay.. I did not re-play the first remade, gave it back, too much backlog.. One more reason to get this on PC.

    I'm hating the price but must have.. Wishlisted along with RE 4 PC HD, Assassin's Creed Liberation HD and Castlevania - Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate HD, until deep cuts at the least about 10$, on some Steam holidays..
