Oh, come on, admit it. You like these HD remakes and definitive editions.

During a recent Q&A session as part of the company's financial briefing (as cited by GameSpot ), Capcom said HD remasters are going to be a focus moving forward:

"HD remasters of our catalogue hit titles will be one of our key business activities … [digital sales] created new demand for these titles. For example, overseas download sales of 'Resident Evil' (HD Remastered) in the past fiscal year were far higher than we expected.

It is not a risk but rather the growth of the download sales channel gives users more options. We regard this as growth in opportunities to have allow access for more people to enjoy our games."

Resident Evil HD Remaster released in January for consoles and PC and broke sales records; it became Capcom's fastest-selling digital title in the company's history in North America and Europe. Devil May Cry: Definitive Edition also did very well.

What HD remake is up next for Capcom, do you think?

I'd actually love a remake of the original DMC. Played the hell out of that game back when it came out.

Remake is different than remaster. I wouldn't mind an updated remake with the original and best Dante. Bring it on capcom since clearly you aren't doing anything good with the franchise.

Not talking about a simple remaster with upscaled graphics, World. I'd like a proper remake.

@sawao – The latest DmC is the best in the series, but it was apparently too different for people who care too much about the color of Dante's hair or whatever. Shame, would have loved to see them continue in that direction.

I think they are just talking HD updates here "HD remasters of our catalogue hit titles will be one of our key business activities"

"The latest DmC is the best in the series"

what are you basing this on? Critics,player reception and DMC tournament players deemed it the second worst in the series,and you think is because of the hair!? Virgil DMC4 plays better then the entire DmC game,and yes gameplay is the main focus here as it should be.

It wasn't because of the hair. The Dante in DmC was too far to the left in comparison to every Dante that came before him. It's no surprise that they didn't even put him in Marvel Vs. Capcom.

You speak to most fans of the series and they will agree that DMC1 and DMC3 are the best in the series.

Hexen, DmC scored higher than DMC4 critically, not that it matters. I'm basing it on my experience with the series. DmC has the most streamlined, fluent combat in the series, a fresh direction that was lacking after the first four games, some of the best motion capture work the industry has ever seen, and by far the best boss battles.

The game is ultimately proof, so far as I'm concerned, that when people say they want something different, they really don't.

I'd like to know when DMC fans ever said we wanted something different. The series centers around its combat, and DmC was several steps back from 3 and 4 in that regard. Look at the combos the best players in those games can pull off and compare them to the reboot.

oooh a quadrilogy of the (4) games? was it? it would be a first and would be awesome. I wish konami did it for silent hill.

Also capcom needs to do one for resi evil. They got 3 HD ports from 6th gen already done. Why not bundle them?

if they want FAST money, its going to be resident evil again. And i dont blame them, however they need to start doing physical limited copies if anything on ps3 and ps4. Doing one on vita i bet would pay off big too. Hell even the wiiU.

I never understood why they didnt give the outbreak series a small reboot on ps3. HD graphics, online play, 2pack game, it would have been awesome and done well.

Hell even chronicles got a digital release. I paid 27 for them, and though i want the REmake real bad, im not supporting digital much anymore, its gotten to be a PAIN IN THE ASS.
