The industry is definitely a little remake-happy, but many fans of the old-school titles in question aren't condemning developers. Most remakes are received very well by critics and gamers alike, and considering the sales numbers are also quite acceptable (usually), it's only more incentive for devs to issue remakes.

The latest rumor says that Resident Evil 2 – or perhaps another classic title in Capcom's repertoire – will receive the makeover treatment at some point in the near future. According to SlashGamer , Capcom responded to a hardcore RE2 fan concerning the possibility of a remake. It was during a recent Q&A at the Resident Evil 5 Wondercon panel, and Capcom's Mike Webster responded thusly:

"Stay tuned, we absolutely understand that these are classic games. Some announcements, that you will be very interested in [are on the way]."

Obviously, there's no confirmation in his words, but it means we should definitely be on the lookout for something . They've already remade the original Resident Evil last generation for the GameCube, so perhaps the next logical step would be release a remake of the critically acclaimed RE2 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Some sources will say the sequel remains one of the best – if not the best – survival/horror games of all time, and a next-gen remake could prove to be very popular. Looks like it's another "wait-and-see" situation… We'll keep you posted.  If anyone has any suggestions for an old Capcom title they'd like to see remade, feel free to let us know.

While mildly distracting while reading your posts, I don't think it would ever bother me enough to call you out and demand you stop.

Hope I'm not one of the people you are directing this toward. I recently asked why you did it just out of curiosity, but it's never bothered me, just as I'm sure the way I spell my name doesn't bother you. Anyway, I agree with you that an RE 2 remake would rock. Hell, I'd love a remake of the remake of RE 1 lol. I love RE!

The worrying thing is they will remake it into some 3d type thing and it will be not as good.

I'm playing the Original RE on my original PS1 today and RE2,RE3 will follow this week. What a great trilogy for the PS1, I love these games and would welcome any remake, especially a RE2 remake.

I would love to see a remake of RE2, that was my favorite. Hopefully they'd stay away from the RE4/5 camera. This would be a great reason to return to the classic style, if only for this one time.

Why don't we get every classic's remake then;

Goldeneye
FFVII
San Andreas
etc.

The industry will be reversing then,we'll be playing old games with next gen graphics,that's what we want right?

Wait….hold on……is a SFIV a SFII remake?

Reccaman18

Well, not really. I mean, Tekken 6 is not a remake of the older ones. Just because it has a lot of the same characters, moves, and game play mechanics, doesn't mean its the same game. By calling SF4 a remake, you mean that every time a developer makes new characters, newer graphics, new stages, and new moves, then every sequel is pretty much a remake.

Hey! I didn't say sfiv is a remake,didn't you see the question mark?

I mean those Street Fighter's on ps2 were 3d and had those doll graphics,but sfiv is more like enhanced sega mega drive II/snes street fighter II.That's what everybody keeps saying,that they went back to the classic ways.
SFIV is GREAT! Am looking forward to getting it.

Now THAT would be a Resident Evil game I'd have to buy! I'd love to see all 3 of the original games have remakes appear on the PS3, along with Dino Crisis 1 and 2.

They should just remake the whole RE series and put it on 1 blu ray disc then sell it at $59 that would be a steal.

The RE remake on the Gamecube is sweet! I would love to see a RE2 on the PS3. RE2 is one of the best games ever! Capcom sold a copy already if they decide to do a remake. Then again, I've bought every game and movie that has the words Resident Evil on the cover.

Well it's not like they have never done this before. Hopefully this will be the first one to allow you to aim and move at the same time. And hopefully they don't send it to the Wii

RE outbreak file 2 had walk n gun but nobody liked it,if its in the style of RE4 & 5 then the SLOW zombies would never get near enough to hurt you,if its in the style of RE2 then the FPS heads won't play it.

i want the name,city & characters to be the only things the same as the original because you can finish leon a or b in under 2hrs 20mins and that won't fly with me nowadays.
I'd like to explore alot more of the city,ie the parks,schools & skyscrapers ect,sure keep the locations in the original eg.police station,sewers & underground labs but give us alot more.
They could spilt up the city between leon & claire so you get two games in one again.

Ps.if its mutiplat(which it will be),it better get a two disc release on the 360

I don't mind remakes, but if your going to just give us the same game with upscaled graphics then I won't waste my hard earned money on a game I still own and can play in its original form.. To me if your going to bring it up todays standards then do it all the way same charectors but really change the enviorment to reflect todays abilities. make it a sandbox to play in…

Yeah, thats my problem with remakes too. Which is why FF VII will never be remade. Most people want newer things in our remakes, and some dont want any kind of change. I think that would be why Square is afraid to do it.

I don't think FFVII will ever be remade. Most, if not all, of the people who worked on that game have moved on to other companies.
