I knew it!
A few months back a PC version surfaced in a Capcom release list, which was removed/denied shortly thereafter, but a recent preview in the latest issue of GameStar magazine has the PC edition scheduled for summer (July) 2009.

Actually it's already been confirmed, just that it's not official announced. Capcom has bought Devil May Cry 4, Lost Planet to PC, and they're planning to bring Street Fighter IV to PC. No doubt they'll bring Resident Evil 5 to PC too.

Oh, Bionic Commando too.

Yeah considering that its being developed on the same engine as Lost Planet and DMC4, which capcom has stated is designed to be platform nuetral aswell as stating that they will themselves become platform nuetral, I thought it was a given aswell.

Now wheres Condemned 2? :p

Honestly I never got into RE4, so I look at this game without much anticipation. It wasn't RE4's horrible PC port either, I had it and did not like it on PS2.

Really the Resident Evil series has been going down hill for me, its all action now with little horror. The first 3 were so great...

Theres nothing wrong with it other then it doesn't resemble anything the original titles were like. Theres no real horror element into it, its no longer a survival horror title rather its now just an regular 3rd person shooter.

capcom are the only dev team in the pc gaming alliance that is doing something with their games to help PC, I expect this is probably true.

Exactly... the first 2 I loved, they were like adventure games with some combat thrown in, and had a great atmosphere and story. Three was almost as good but a little combat heavy... 4 and now 5, from the look of it, are basically shooters.

I like shooters though, so normally I would deal, but the mechanics and controls of 4 did not suit its new shooter gameplay well at all in my opinion... game felt clunky and cumbersome. Maybe 5 is better, I don't know.

I haven't played an RE game since the 1st one. Maybe I'll do some catching up before this one is released :D

I finished RE 1, 2 and 3. Even had an "S" ranking on 2, but I lost interest in 4, even though some gaming mags dubbed that game one of the best evar. Resi5 must be a good PC port before I even think of buying it.

Devil May Cry 4 has been the most optimized game for the PC this year, and by a huge difference.

Can't wait to see more titles from this development team. :)

Looking forward to RE5. Loved 1 and 2 but I felt the series needed to do something different as everyone was starting to get bored of the old system. I'm glad they came up with something so unique yet familiar (RE4). A lot of games have followed the over the shoulder gameplay since RE4.

It's a shame that it isn't as scary as the originals, but with old age I wouldn't find it scary now anyway. It's all been done in the earlier games, so I appreciate the new action preference. :)

btw I won't be playing re5 if it doesn't have mouse support though.

They ported RE4 to PC, so why not RE5? I'd gladly pick the PC version over the 360 version anytime. Unless it turns out to be a lousy port...

Whatever happened to Dead Rising for PC? It uses the same game engine as Lost Planet, DMC4 and RE5. Seems like I heard a long time ago it was supposed to be released for PC.

Because Dead Rising is old and gone, if they make a sequel that would be the one that would be multiplatform.

I don't know. It may be old but supposedly they are porting it to the Wii.

Anything can happen, Lost Planet got ported pretty long after release to the PS3, but I would bet Magus is right and we have to hope for Dead Rising 2.

Honestly though, Dead Rising is the essence of a console game... like a really pretty NES game... you're probably not missing much.

Dam straight!
