Remember when Resident Evil 4 was first released in 2005 for the Gamecube? It not only reinvented the Resident Evil franchise, it revolutionized a genre with its behind the shoulder perspective. Whether you liked the direction the series went in or not, RE4’s influence on gaming can’t be denied.
Capcom’s latest port of Resident Evil 4 releases today in North America and tomorrow in Europe for the Xbox 360 and PS3. PlayStation Plus subscribers can get the game for half the price ($9.99/€9.99/£7.99), which is a great deal.
It’s also worth noting that the first three Resident Evil titles for PSone will be free of charge in North America for PS Plus subscribers. Since RE2 and RE3 have not been released in Europe yet, only Resident Evil: Director’s Cut will receive a similar treatment.
Check out the launch trailer for Resident Evil 4 HD below. Expect a review sometime soon.
