    this is excellent news, i just hope capcom's reputation for dodgy pc ports doesnt carry through

    resi 4 and dmc3 were some of the worst ports ever

    Awesome, I can't wait! I just hope the port isn't halfass like most ports.

    Resident Evil Directors Cut is my all time favorite RE. Out of the whole RE series, the shooters were the worst. I just hope RE5 goes back to its roots.

    the control system on resi 4 pc was a bit dodge, granted, but the game played A-OK. i'm up for a little DMC action for PC though.

    resi evil 5 will come out on pc i think, a few months later than expected, but it should be there eventually

    RE2 was the best hands down. Awesome story, much better voice acting (well, compared to the original), and a reason to play through a second time. I would love a remake of RE2 as long as it was done like the GC remake of 1.

    Is it Capcom who did the RE PC ports, or was it a another company?

    TreeDude: Ubisoft did RE4. I don't remember who did the previous ones.

    UrbanMarine: It won't. It's more like RE4 with a different setting and HD graphics.

    as long as the zombies are white i'll purchase the game, cause you know basing a game in africa with 99% population black and then making the zombies black is so so racist

    Really, really wonky promise made by Capcom. Can anybody here recall their last, fervent commitment to the PC?
    Should never be used in an article dealing with PC gaming.

    Ever.

    After RE4, I'm now hoooked on the resident evil games.
    Seeing as I don't have a 360 or ps3, I really hope capcom do a decent port to the pc :)

    please say this is going to happen... i loved playing the 4th one on the pc with the latest patch.
    i never played it with the unpatched version which people seemed to despise but yer my experience was sweet with straight out of the box 360 support included:D this would be amazing to take round to a mates with a controller on my macbook and lan it
