Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Capcom did it again to Switch! :( [Resident Evil]

It was too good to be true and we all guessed it.

- Physical copy of RE collection will just be RE0 on card and RE1 as a digital code
- Each game individually will cost you $30US/$40CAD/£30,  $60US for the physical RE Collection ...yikes...seeing as how those were each $10 cheaper when released on the PS4/XB1.

Silly Capcom, just when you thought they were starting to get things good again.  I want to play RE4 on the Switch, but not at that price.  And any game that comes with physical+digital is a huge let down for me.

What are your thoughts?  Anybody still plan on pre-ordering them/buying them at launch?

I was going to buy all three, but....nope, I'm not going to go along with this. RE4 is a $20 on PS4, and to charge an additional $10 for the same digital release is absurd and exploitive. No thanks. At least Mega Man 11 was a NEW game, AND it came on a card! What sucks is the catch-22: they're going to lose so many sales because of this, and they're going to blame the fans/Nintendo for the game selling so poorly. I hate that so many big third-party developers pull the carrot on a string crap when it comes to supporting Nintendo platforms. Either they release games with components that are missing, or they overcharge, and then they say things along the lines of "if Nintendo fans want THIS game then they have to buy THAT game to show that they want our support!" A game can bomb on PS4 or XBONE and it won't matter, but if a game tanks on a Nintendo platform? Kiss that developer goodbye! It's ridiculous that these companies don't realize that Nintendo fans are like any other gaming base: they want quality experiences and they don't like being ripped off!



Figures. I would have bought almost all Capcom games on Switch, but I only have like 4 because of this shit and Im sure Im not the only one. Capcom is a beloved developer and they could be so big and successful. Its just the shitty Capcom publisher that keeps fucking up again and again. They really are the EA of Japan.



I wouldn't buy the 10th port of RE 4=p
Remakes are another thing though kkkk I think at some point I'll have to give RE4 a second chance.

I bought Resident Evil 4 for $5 CAD on Steam last December and since I love the game I was considering buying it (for a 4th time) on Switch but not at $40CAD that's 8 times what I got it for on PC.

Good grief 60 bucks. And i thought ultra sf 2 was ridiculous



I just care about RE4. Digital or physical, don't care. I will pay full price for it too.

Give it NOW!

 

As for everyone else, just wait for the price to come down.



Why does Capcom hate Switch users? -_-



RE4 at anything above $10 is a complete rip off. The game is 14 years old now. A GameCube copy complete in box costs $14. There are millions of copies of it in the wild for every console on the planet. It's not a hard game to find.

The reason for this seems to be because the physical version of Zero is on a 16GB cartridge, and those are still expensive.
And the retail side has to keep parity with the stores, so the price of RE4 is affected by this, even though it's digital only.

A better solution to this would have just been to make these digital only, and not put them on physical carts.
