It may have gotten lost in the shuffle during Sony's E3 press conference that featured plenty of huge blockbuster titles, but survival/horror fans certainly noted the announcement.

In addition to the other awesome software scheduled for the PSP-3000 and PSP Go! – Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker , Gran Turismo PSP , etc. – there's one other title that caught a lot of attention: the new handheld Resident Evil . We didn't get any information on it during the conference, but it seems the first details have surfaced on the Internet. First off, and most unfortunately, the game is still a "ways off," so you shouldn't expect it to release alongside the PSP Go! in October. However, the game may be completely different than previous iterations in the series, and when we hear that, we get the feeling it may take a step beyond Resident Evil 5 and try to become a purely action-oriented zombie kill-fest. Now, this ought to intrigue all you fans of the long-running franchise, even those of you who don't like the new direction taken by RE5. And because it's being designed specifically with the PSP Go! in mind, perhaps we can expect something entirely new that we can't even begin to imagine… Maybe it'll be the first blockbuster for the new portable unit!

We'll definitely keep a sharp eye out for any new information concerning Resident Evil for the PSP, but just remember this: it's not a remake; it's an entirely new installment in the series.

Cool, and common sense-wise, why make a remake of RE if you just released director's cut of RE1 as a classic on the PS Store =D lol

Really don't like that they're going to release this for the PSP only. I want to play it but not on my hand held. I'd like to play it on my PS3.

Sweet, I will definitely get this one. Hopefully they bring back some more Horror…. RE5 was great but the series needs an overhaul…. Or they must go back to the roots of what it used to be just let it play more like Dead Space…

I'm with the few who loves RE4, will pickup RE5 soon after finishing Resistance2.

Heh yeah, though saying that i would love House of the Dead II on my PSP.

I'm hoping it wont be like RE4/5, I bought RE5 and gave it back the next day…. it just wasnt for me, i already have about 5 games which use the over the sholder gameplay style, i dont need another, i much prefer RE1-3, the dramatic camrea angles are whats lacking in modern horror games, becuase now the camera follows the character, mmmmm im going to play RE2 now.

I've been waiting for a Resident Evil on the PSP since I got my PSP a couple of years ago.
RE4 was the best of the franchise on the consoles IMO, and even though this RE is supposed to be different, I'll be psyched just to have RE on the PSP (besides the recent download of RE1)
