Resident Evil 4 HD for PS3 (PSN)

Now’s your chance to relive one of the most critically acclaimed games of all time. Resident Evil 4 HD will be released via PlayStation Network on Tuesday, September 20th. Five years after the Raccoon City outbreak, Leon S. Kennedy is back in action and on a new assignment. The President’s daughter has been kidnapped by a mysterious cult in Europe and it’s your mission to rescue her and make it out alive. The entire Resident Evil 4 experience (including all bonus content from previous versions) has been remastered in high definition and will be a treat for both new fans and RE veterans.

I must be the only person in the world who didn’t care for the motion controls on the Wii version. It just felt too weird. Just like with most of the motion controls, I just don’t have the same level of control that I have using a game pad. It was so awkward for me that I bought a Gamecube control for the Wii version. I also can’t achieve the same high scores on Mercs using the Wiimote setup.

WipEout HD, Trine, Dead Nation, Hasbro Family Game Night, Spare Parts, Worms 2, the Alien Breed games and the Prince of Persia Collection are all PSN-only titles with platinums. Limited edition/PSN HD remasters like COD Classic, MOH Frontline and Dead Space Extraction had ’em too.

From what I’ve read, the beef isn’t so much about the plat’ as it is the lack of console parity with the 360. If the 360 didn’t have 1000g then it’d be less of an issue. As it stands, the trophy values themselves are significantly skewed (eg. several ‘golds’ on the 360 are merely ‘bronze’ on the PS3). It’s the difference between 1000g and 200g for the same price. People just want to know why.

No move support and no trophies = no sale. I will boycott this and suggest others do until this error is resolved?

Why create a trophy system (or gamerscore system which is enabled for this game), then leave out trophies?

Some really bad, easy games have been released on PSN that do have trophies and plat trophies at that! Why not this one?? (from what I hear this ISN’T a bad game btw).

And why no move support? Does no one from each department, communicate with other departments at Sony? Who made the decision to exclude trophy support?

I love you guy’s, love Sony and PlayStation including most of your exclusive titles. Please rectify this gap in your production process to include what we now come to expect in the year 2011.

Gosh, people nowadays seems more interested in trophies than in the game itself.

@el_pollo (loco)

It does have trophies just not a platinum one.

STARS_Member said:

September 16th, 10:12 pm

its just a nice feature, i’ve already finished RE4 on gamecube and ps2, it would be awesome to finish it on ps3 and win some trophies…

thebgj said:

September 16th, 10:15 pm

i just found a solution for the Move support thing…..its genius!!!!!

Sell the game to PS+ people for 5 bucks and when the update for move if it comes they can charge them the extra 5 bucks.

For the other NON PS+ people sell for 10 and then another ten when they add Move support.

that will get them to work on it real quick

xGabianni said:

September 16th, 10:21 pm

Wow, okay. Here’s the deal here.

PS+ Users: 10% Discounts, freebies of RE1 RE2 and RE3, not a bad deal.

Pretty much, with only 12 trophies, it’s a shame there’s no platinum. And for all those that are pitching a dwarf about the XBL version having the 1000 Gamer Score, not true. It’s about the same as the PS3. About 12 achievements total. Want proof?


./end arguement

P.S: I’m getting this. Kthxbai.

So much complaining about trophies and move support. Im gonna buy it because i think its a great game experience and a nice deal.

CMAR_PreDaToR said:

yes i cant wait until RE4 HD

Rene_Led said:

September 16th, 11:29 pm

Since when did trophies affect getting a game or not?

JDivine911 said:

September 16th, 11:33 pm

I seen that yall were going to have saints row 2 for dowload on psn. if so, how much?

Charles_Surge said:

September 16th, 11:37 pm

RE4 deserves a Platinum. Will probably buy this, depends a lot on DRM.

xGabianni said:

September 16th, 11:40 pm

@ 161: Agreed. A game shouldn’t be judged by trophies/achievements. Those are just there for the extra challenge within the game that’s already challenging enough as is. :)


September 17th, 12:02 am

please Capcom give the game an update to give it full trophy support c’mon it’s RE4 HD i was hoping it would have a platinum

kivi95 said:

September 17th, 12:22 am

160# Many people have already played R4 and with a platinium i would likly buy it again or move support.

ToFeY said:

YAY i love being a plus member ;)
thank you sony & capcom ;*

If the game is awesome which all Resident Evil’s are..trophies are the least of my worries.(my opinion)

Also for the people who say “xbox has 1000 points which makes it so much better”.,.I dont think you know how dorky and sad you sound. Really., WGAF about trophies when the real experience is in the game itself,.I turn off all notifications just to stay immersed and not have a friends gamename pop up or a trophy for getting 10 HS in a row pop up. i am still buying this to play on my HDTV,and i will love everybit of it all over again.

Jootino said:

September 17th, 3:17 am

Enjoyed RE5 so to get all that for $10 is not bad!

liquidypoo said:

September 17th, 3:21 am

Shut up about platinum trophies, all of you. What are you guys, 12? The real issue here is the missing Move support. Why was an entire play style ignored? We have a peripheral that people would love to use for pointing and clicking, why wasn’t an already implemented once before control style ported over? As much as I’d love to play this again, I refuse to do so unless I hear about a Move support patch. A free Move support patch, Capcom. I know how greedy you guys are.

Mr. Mike Lunn, before I comment I don’t intend to come arcoss unappreciative of Capcom’s contribution to the gaming industry, Capcom has been a stong contributor for years and I’m thankful for what they’ve (you?) done through the 80’s and 90’s; with that said where have the company’s initiative gone? …Most of your content for the last 4-6 years have been under assessed and in most instances titles are released incomplete. Many on this forum are concerned with the lack of full trophy support and it is only fitting given the last few years, but I wasn’t surprised to find out you added a handful of trophies for a full length title. I’m still hopeful for the company’s success (or re-success), and I want to reserve critical judgement until I’ve completed the remakes scheduled this month, but given Capcom’s recent track record I will assume without question that the attention given to the upcoming re-releases will pale in comparison to what the developers at Team ICO did with the re-releases of ICO and SOTC. I have my fingers crossed for not being disappointed, but so far horrible trophy implementation is a step in the wrong direction.

Cool. And gamers in germany again get shafted, they get nothing for free and no Code Veronica in HD. Enjoy your PS+ guys…

Here´s what I think crapcom has for us: RE4 $20 usd for non plus users. FIRST DAY DLC will be an unlock key to get platinum trophy with a price tag of $4.99. One week later we´ll get a MOVE SUPPORT DLC at $9.99!!

Impairing said:

September 17th, 5:36 am


Oh, another Outbreak (or even rerelease) would be wonderful… but considering at E3 when they were talking about Operation: Raccoon City and stated that it was the first time in RE history that you could become infected, I’m sure they’ve forgotten all about both of those games.

nobodies-hero said:

September 17th, 6:44 am

Ugh so if I have Plus and I want to purchase the PSone games at dicount is there a way to do that? Or am I hooped? Glitch in the system.

Digital-Big-Boss said:

September 17th, 6:50 am

For all you people telling us to stop complaining about trophies.

I, like many other people, have already purchased this game for another console (3 consoles myself). If all I want to do is to play the game and enjoy it again, I will play one of those 3 versions I already own. I have no reason to pay money for another release of this game. This “port” doesn’t offer anything new to justify the expense. I was only willing to pay money again if it included platinum.

Digital-Big-Boss said:

September 17th, 6:55 am


sorry, but that is what you get for signing up for PS+

Zeo784 said:

September 17th, 7:17 am

Wow, just wow this is going to be a really sweet buy, time to renew my PS+ subscription just for this incredible Resident Evil deal. RE4 is by far my favorite resident evil game and Leon my favorite character, Also can’t wait for Code Veronica.

Manigamer said:

September 17th, 7:40 am

OMG, one of the best news for ps pluss ppl :D re 1, 2 and 3 for free and re4 50 percent off ! i just hope we get a 50 percent off the upcoming re code veronica X aswell :D THAT WOULD BE AWESOME

Elvick_ said:

September 17th, 7:58 am

Capcom won’t be getting any money from me.

thebgj said:

September 17th, 8:01 am

@ Manigamer

Its already announced that CodeVeronica will be 50% off.

Fusion13 said:

September 17th, 8:21 am

Thank you Sony!

QuantumMercury said:

September 17th, 9:32 am

If it had a platinum trophy I would buy it. @2, I am in the same boat you are and I know there are a lot of people who are skipping on it for that reason (they already own it, including me and no plat).

Shrewder said:

September 17th, 10:27 am

These PS+ specials are greatly appreciated. I will certainly purchase RE4 HD on launch day. Thank you, Capcom and Sony.

Sneeches said:

September 17th, 11:03 am

I will be getting this day 1, the HD remake looks awesome and the fact that I’m gonna get it at 50% off is sweet.

Anyone know if they are going to release this in retail?

lollollol85242 said:

September 17th, 11:24 am

Im Glad I get to play 2 of my favorite Resident Evil’s again, but im really bummed about, the lack of platinum trophy. I will buy it regardless, but that is something the game should come with, im a trophy hunter! I dont care much about move support, im not a big fan in motion gaming.

lbpmagician said:

September 17th, 12:18 pm

I’m gonna get this, but please add Move support so this is the definitive version :)


September 17th, 12:18 pm

I love this game but capcom has been treating their fans like cr@p so I’m not buying anything from them until they change their policies

@50 Sponge-worthy: that’s what I mean about capcom policies


September 17th, 12:20 pm

@189: oh c’mon, why will they do that? just cause the wii version had it there’s no reason to include it, right? why will they do that when they can resale us the same game again in 6 months with added move support for “only” $15

EverythingOnFire said:

September 17th, 12:27 pm

Haha at all the Plus members claiming victory “yet again.”

Have fun paying $150 over the next 3 years just so you can play one of these “free” games if and when you get the urge.

BTW, $15 would be better, but $20 is still a fair price for this. Thanks Capcom & Sony. =)

Wasn’t Resident Evil 4 for the Playstation2? Does this mean that PS2 classics on the Playstation Store is possible?

Shinra_Soilder said:

September 17th, 1:26 pm

I can’t wait. Just a few more days till RE4 is finally on the PS3. Good times are coming.

ElektroDragon said:

September 17th, 1:43 pm

Well, its official. Even though I am on Plus, I will be buying this game on 360 for the 1000 gamerscore since there is no Platinum. I’ll still get the older Resident Evils free thanks to Plus at least.

JDRAY-L said:

CraigAwesome said:

blakseed said:

September 17th, 3:10 pm

It is weird that it doesn’t have a platinum trophy, but that shouldn’t stop people from buying the game. It is one of the best Resident Evil games ever made and that should be reason enough to get it.
