Resident Evil: Code Veronica X HD
Resident Evil 4 HD and RE: Code Veronica X HD Heading to Retail in September
Written Tuesday, July 26, 2011 By Richard Walker

Come this September, you'll be given the option to either download or purchase a hard retail copy of the Resident Evil 4 HD and Resident Evil: Code Veronica X HD remakes, which ought to be interesting as High Street retailers continue to drive their prices down.

It's likely that the downloadable version will release at a fixed price, while the retail version's cost could be more competitive, so it seems like a bit of a no-brainer as to which to plump for when the remakes both release in a couple of months in Japan and North America.

That's September 8th in Japan and September 20th in North America for Resident Evil 4 HD and September 8th in Japan and September 27th in North America for Resident Evil: Code Veronica X HD. PAL dates have yet to be confirmed.

Hopefully (for me anyway) RE4 won't have a trophy for beating it on the hardest mode... that took forever for me to beat on the Wii!

@5 Have a look on they've had the achievement list up for a while, it's fairly easy, hopefully we get a better list though as there is ony 12 achivements for a 1000g..

The wii version was perfect, one of the best games ever. The great controls did make it much easier though.

There's just too much going on during the last third of this year, a lot of these games will spill over into 2012 for me. Still rather have too many great games around than not enough.

As for the Download/Retail prices, if the last couple are anything to go by the download price will be 10-20% more than retail. Bloody stupid strategy imo.

@#7 Weapon Crazy Get the Rocket Launcher (Code Veronica)

Fairly easy you say, you do know what you have to do to unlock the Rocket Launcher don't you?

A 500G HDD could help some of you guys. It'll cost far less than $100 these days.

Still, I would prefer retail over network where I live. Download restrictions are a major fuss around here.

I'm really looking forward to 4 but Veronica is, IMO, the worst one of the lot.

I have a 500gb in mine and it's almost full already. When you factor in over 50 PSN games, 100+ PS1 classics plus countless game installs upwards of 5gb a piece it adds up.

Also I'm willing to bet this will be a one disc collection, it would make more sense.

@13 I'm in the same boat. I've got a 600Gb and I'm down to 48gb left. With all the other games coming out this fall I'm having to put down on another ps3 that I can try and slap a 640 or whatever the highest is now into it.

I'm still debating if I want to buy these. Sure they're remade in HD, but I still have the hard copy of both of them from the Playstation 2 era. I guess it is something I'll have to think about also. I mean essentially it is the same game just better graphics.

guys did you read the article? week apart release dates . Pretty much confirms separate sells . My bet is 40 bucks each again. Not worth it in the least .

if thats the trophy list from xboxache then that's sad too . could have given us a much bigger list and I hope they dont have platinums with that list.

Hmmm, I had kinda assumed that if it was a retail release it would be a bundle like all other HD remakes (Sly, Tomb Raider, Prince of Persia, God of War etc.) If so I'll buy it sometime later this year, otherwise I'll wait and pick it up 2nd hand sometime next year, not gonna pay 2x full price for games I already got, what with all the great releases we're getting in the next few months. And with Capcom's endless rerelease policy I'm nearing the point where I don't want to support them anymore despite having been a fan of theirs for around 20 years now.
But to those that haven't got/played #4, go get it, I swear I locked myself in for a week playing around the clock when I got this game, not survival horror like the originals, more action, but a great action game at that.

The article hardly confirms it will be separate retail releases. More than likely we'll get the disc version a short while after a spaced out release on PSN so they can grab those quick "can't wait" dollars.

Then again Capcom did release all them separately on GCN so....

Probably be $40 a piece? If the price was going to be any lower I think they would have bundled it and just charged $60

@#10 I was talking about RE4 being fairly easy. I was hoping their wouldn't be an achievement/trophy for the rocket launcher in code veronica :/ I think it was finish with a S rank in under 3 hours or something insane.

Thank God, I knew Capcom had more sense than to deprive NA of a retail release. They would've lost out on a ton of revenue!
