Hmm well seeing SF4 for PC was a absolute shocker for everyone.....what are the chances of RE5 making the same appearance.....

Why would it be shocking? 4 was on PC, as was 1-3 I believe. It will come... the question is, how soon?

Id say pretty good, lots of capcom console releases has made its to pc over the years, not just Lost planet and upcoming DMC4 (and the crappy PC port of Resident Evil 4).

I was very supriced when I saw Breath of Fire 4 for PC in the bargin bin one day, but not as much as when they announced SF4 for PC.. . It's about time they release some good ol beat em ups for pc

I hope it comes out
i hope even more that SourceNext has nothing to do with it

with SF4 also coming out on the pc and lost planet already out it looks like capcom is taking the pc as a serious platform

I think so, probably 6 months after the console versions.

1. Hasn't every, or nearly every RE title appeared on PC.
2. Lost Planet came to PC, and so will DMC4 and SF4.
3. The only evidence against it is Dead Rising hasn't come to PC.

RE5 is a big console release, so if it does come to PC it'll probably be a delayed release. Nearly every one (if not all) of the RE games have come to PC, so it wouldn't be too much of a shocker to see it get here eventually.

I think all have come out...atleast the proper RE games, but it took a really long time for it to do that. I was more or less hoping a similar close release date...but yea this is a big console title...

I know some will argue it, but really that's an extremely console feeling game... I assume that's why it was never ported.

I suppose so .. its built using the Framework AFAIK (same engine used in Lost Planet & DMC4).

I think the real reason is it was built when the Framework engine was probably not built fully for PS3 and PC at the time. So basically it would have been a lot more work to port.
