Sure we all new this would happen but at least they got the guts to admit it.

In an enterview for a magazine "CG World" the team encharged of converting RE4 just admited the conversion isn't going very well. For starters they will only be able of using 4 and 8 bit textures while the GC is using 24bit also while leon in the GC has 10.000 polygons the PS2 version is gonna have only 5.000 and besides all this adjustments its still having a worst framerate.

On the other hand the PS2 is having a larger variety of textures as well as new ceneries, weapons and exclusive cloths.


Something to make all GC fanboys happy ;)

Metalmurphy, I wouldn't call fanboys people who prefer to play a game at full quality instead of a crappy port whose only reason to exist is to make more cash out of stupid folks who think the PS2 is the best system ever.

Seriously, the team should just leave it on GC. I am saving the cash up to buy it on GC...I will not ruin the experience playing it on the PS2.

Sony know it will never look as good on the PS2, so they are gonna do a lousy job porting it....and, it's gonna suck on PS2...mark my words.

I'm not one of those console geeks, who involves themselves in these silly, mundane console wars, but will all credit due, GC rocks :D

Raz you mean it isn't? since when? look at the game libraries PS2 has way more games 1 point for PS2, Very little kiddie games 2 points for PS2, SOCOM II enough said. Nintendo doesn't cater to its more mature audiences and instead only wishes to release kiddy games plus Nintendo' president said no one wants to play games online, SAYS whos? theres like 20 million Madden players online, 500k Socom II players online and hell even the Xbox has some online games, Nintendo just really needs to do what Sega did and give up the ghost.

With the PS3 being released sometime soon (eight or so months) with that beautiful Cell processor technology *drool* Nintendo is over, as is probably Xbox, Sony has thrown the knockout blow to all competition. Nintendo had their long glorious run what was it Twenty yrs? and what about fifteen yrs ago when Sony and Nintendo were partners going to make the SNES a CD system? Nintendo really screwed themselves by shunning Sony.

Ok, dude, you must understand, there is nothing personal toward you. :D Whether your fav. console is GC, PS2, XBOX, it doesn't matter. :D

By all means, I am not starting/attempting to start a console war; on the contrary, I said that it was not the aim of my thread.

All I was pointing out is that if they port it to PS2, it will not be as good. The last point to mention is that, no matter how much people love PS2....that won't change the fact that it's best on GC. :D

And isnt that exactly what i said right in the start?

"Sure we all new this would happen"

Im a PS2 fan boy and i know it will be worst. It still wont mean it will suck. It can but not necessarly.

(oO my english is getting terrible)

Metalmurphy...I own a PC, PS2 and GC...I love all of them, with their pro's and quirks...but, tell me....with the choice of playing it on GC or PS2, knowing that the game contents are identical....are you telling me that your dedication to Sony's PS2 is so great, that you'd play a toned-down version solely cause it's PS2?

Hmm....

Although, one thing that has bugged me....the fact that GC has these crappy mini-dvd discs.....so annoying, cause it is another hinder on the console...like the N64 and those friggin' cartridges.....

....have a good night, dude. ;)

I made my mind up about the PS2 when i saw the state of the Max Payne 2 conversion. It looked awful.

I interpret the RE4 to PS2 conversion as Capcom's foot making contact with Nintendo's nuts. I think less damage would have been made if Capcom just said "I don't think the GameCube has any future left."

Hell, Europe hasn't even got the GC version yet.

WTF? 4 bit? 16 colors! That's unbelievable.
8 bits is ok, since once filtered it looks like 16/24 bit textures... but 4....

/me wonders if we'll have a PC version of RE4
the first 3 games had one.
It would be a good way to rentabilize our high-end computers :p

dooh... I still have a hope, I don't think that PS2 is the best system in technology, but it's games are those I like the best :) I'll say one more time: I still have a hope to play RE4 on my PS2 :)

The biggest disappointment is going to be caused by ppl hoping it will be a perfect port and it will be just like the GC version.... The only thing PS2 players can hope is that gameplay isn't going to suffer :)

This reminds me of an old IGN movie about a DC and VMU mocking the PS2's uber emotion engine, which was soooooooo great..... :p

Meh Graphics aren't everything. Still I have to agree that it will most definately look way better on the gamecube. You're still playing the same game in the end. Didn't all of us who enjoy survival horrors enjoy Resident Evil 3 for the Playstation? Well graphics were horrible by todays standards. But you're playing the game for the game, not the fancy textures and high polygon counts. :drool: :p
