Capcom is not the one paying for those games I am more than willing to pay extra for a good portable version and buy their new stuff on my PS4.PC

Well, maybe you like to get scammed and price-gouged, but I, certainly, do not. And we are the generous ones giving our hard earned cash to buy their games, not them by spitting digital-only ancient overpriced games.

But I don't feel that way. I think I am getting a fair deal and I am paying for that deal, otherwise, I would not buy those games. And I think I am not in a minority here, seeing how well these games are doing.

Capcom have been generous by porting a lot of games to Switch. 

Yeah, SO generous they split the DMC trilogy into three overpriced games, priced the RE ports for 10 extra without any reason whatsoever, and MegaMan 11 not having a physical release here in Europe!

Seriously, what are you smoking?

They take an example out of Nintendo’s playbook.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is still going at full price, despite it being an updated port of a Wii U game.

That’s just one of the many examples.

I remember when Capcom gave you ungrateful Nintendo fans the exclusive Resident Evil 4? You didn't buy it. You didn't buy Viewtiful Joe. You didn't buy PN03. You didn't buy Killer 7.

Remember when they gave you ungrateful Nintendo fans your own version of Dead Rising? Pushed that poor weak Nintendo Wii to the limit. Who bought it? Not one single one of you!

Remember the 3DS? Remember when Capcom gave you guys the single best looking 3DS game on the console, Resident Evil Revelations? Gave you online co-op AND dual analog support? The only two people that bought it were me and Rol. That's it. I believe Vgchartz still has the official sales listed at 2. I haven't checked in a while. Not to mention SUPER Street Fighter 4 with all new modes and controls.

So Capcom gave you their best. Their best wasn't good enough. Now you get leftover shit. And Monster Hunter.

Based on what we've seen. Games like Doom 2016 evidently did well enough to lead to continued support. RE7 on Switch likely would've done as well or better, the series is well established on Nintendo systems. With porting houses like Panic Button it wouldn't even have taken up any of their internal resources.

Or maybe the ports are selling so insanely well that they decided to go this route? Doom 2016 sold well enough more than likely, but obiously not well enough to guarantee a day and date release for the sequel

Sold well enough that Doom Eternal is being made for the Switch. Would never have been greenlit if 2016 hadn't made money.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

Both REmake 2 and 3 as well as RE7 are not as demanding as people think the games have really good character models and animations but everything else is actually basic when you look at the textures and assets they're certainly not on par with some of the games already ported. Capcom's support has not been very good in general tbh.

No sorry, this is an outright lie. RE2 and RE3 are some of the best looking games that were released in this generation. Both character models and environment details are absolutely insane. This is not coming only from me, this is also coming from Digital Foundry. Porting them would butcher the experience, the same way it did with The Witcher 3 and Doom 2016. Let's face it, just because those games are "good enough" on the Switch they are nowhere near good when stacked up against other versions.

I much rather play old, full-blown, perfectly working ports on the go (like RE5 or Aline: Isolation), than something that amounts to a tech demo Look, if your only system to play those games is a Switch, I get it, it might be frustrating not getting those games, but hey it was a). the system you bought and b). you can always buy the PC version down the line for peanuts, once you upgrade your PC.

The game looks stunning but its also very linear & has limited scenery at any one time, which is why its targeting 1080/60fps on PS4 and why it does the rare job on PS4 pro of often hitting well above 1440p. The biggest asset are the character models & lighting, everything outside of that is not that ambitious. Not a critique of the team, they know exactly what is important for the experience and focus on it. But the raw figures point towards it being one of the easier AAA titles to port to switch.

Anything where the framerate can be cut in half and the resolution dropped to 720, whilst maintaining the core experience is a good contender.

Not an outright lie it's a fact go look closely at non character models and you'll see the textures aren't that great they're very basic REmake 2 and 3 use clever tricks to hide this such as the game such as filters, lighting and the fact that you hardly ever go up close to any asset that you're not meant to interact with all of this is also in smaller enclosed areas. REmake 2 and 3 are the definition of cleverly using what you've got to get a good result I've even got the game on a good PC and noticed this it's also why the game can run well on older PCs at decent level. Want an example of what I mean here is a PC screen I took:

Look at the textures on the Tiger here, Claire looks great being a priority model but the Tiger is adequate at best both model and texture wise that's how most assets in the game are, the use of good lighting and effects cover this up to give the game it's great look.

Your claim that TW3 and Doom experience were butchered is also pure nonsense.

Nope, Capcom made their worse decision by going with MH to PS4/PC/X1, that almost doomed the franchise.
