    It's Kotaku so take it with a grain of salt, but...
    I wonder if this is what became of Resident Evil Portable?

    Seeing as I thought RE5 was a pretty poor team-based game (but sadly only worked with another person), I just don't like the idea of Resident Evil going multiplayer.

    I just want something like Resident Evil 4. A 20+ hour single player adventure with quirky one-liners and zombies.

    It already has, with the Outbreak spin-offs.
    If this turns out to be true, perhaps the game won't be in same vein as RE5, maybe it'll be like Outbreak, which is much closer to RE1-3.

    Outbreak wasn't terribly successful outside of Japan if I recall. For a pun, I'd say it never was a "breakout" hit. Herp de derp.

    But I still like my Resident Evil games as single player games. If I wanted a zombie multiplayer shooter I'd go for Left 4 Dead.

    Have you played any SOCOM games on the PSP? imo, they're pretty good.
    Another company developing the game =/= Sacrafice gameplay qualities.

    Let the outsourcing begin.


    The downfall of Capcom has begun.

    I thought they were pretty shite, not my glass of milk. The PSP ones at least, not played the others. I will however reserve judgment on how future RE titles are handled until I play them. SOCOM and Resident Evil are two different kinds of games and I'm sure they won't be alike.

    I liked Resident Evil 5, but I only played it with my cousin on his Xbox 360 (and will be doing soon...especially if I can't get downstairs since I think my ankle is broken as it is in extreme pain, bruised within like 2 minutes and certain areas feel really bad, either way I may be using my but to go down the stairs and climbing on all fours to try to go up...or my family will threaten to push me downstairs in a wheelchair again like when I had surgery, eh whatever XD!) as a multiplayer thing. I did love the multiplayer action and annoying him while shouting "CHRIS!" was quite amusing. I agree that the story kinda sucked, but I did enjoy the multiplayer, now if they could combine that with a good plot then it's good, oh and make sure I can be a chick, I refused to be Chris, he looked like he was on steroids and scared the living bejebus out of me.

    SOCOM: Confrontation sucked. If RE goes to a western dev, its going to wind up crappier than the movie series.

    I played one, it was alright, nothing special.

    But I can't see RE being developed by a FPS developer...hell what has the SOCOM team made besides SOCOM?

    I hope it's more like outbreak then mercs...but that won't happen.

    Yeah Socom is pretty cool!! If you are into games like that you are right ;D
    RE series are cool [​IMG] !!

    ...Try put them together [​IMG] ......

    It's totally something like, mix Pacman and Killer Instinct and see what will happen [​IMG] ...or tony hawk skateboarding and world of warcraft
    okay maybe I'm going overboard.. the 2 games socom and RE have some similarities...

    -They both use guns....
    -...they...both...have... um. walking creatures? like humans? nevermind the sombies.. [​IMG]

    no that's all I've got...

    Btw I am not bashing on you even if it may seem so [​IMG] but don't get me wrong, I am totally not, socom is a cool game ... >_> I am bashing on the people who had the brilliant idea mixing RE and socom [​IMG]

    I doubt it's actually going to be a mix. Just because the company made Socom, doesn't mean every game they make will be like that. By the way, I'm not really a fan of the Resident Evil games. [​IMG]

    Why is Capcom giving all their game franchises to western developers? First Devil May Cry, now this >:(
    Capcom apparently thinks that Western developers are better than Japanese devs. If they just knew our opinion :/

    *Shh, your ruining my moment here [​IMG] *

    anyhoo, I know it of course won't be a mix.. (though there is a very slight possibility that they make the game Look at least a bit like socom.. I mean tiny elements that you can see, ''Yes game is clearly made by socom team'')

    But let's hope for the best and give them at least a chance I say... if it still feels like, cover the left, and flash-bang trough the door, i'll never trust resident evil made by socom again

    p.s. I am not sure what I need the info for abot the part that you are not a RE fan [​IMG] ...I am not a socom fan, does that count(?)..for..whatever?

    It was just to let people know, just in case one of the readers cares. [​IMG]
