Capcom Trying To Make Amends For One Of The Worst PC Ports Ever

If you never had the misfortune to play it, know that the PC port of Resident Evil 4 was one of Capcom's (and Ubisoft's) darkest moments. So shoddy was the coding that it turned one of the greatest games of all time into a poorly-optimised, bug-riddled joke.

Now, so as to squeeze a few more bucks out of a game that's already been ported to every video game system on the planet, Capcom is re-releasing the game on PC, this time doing the right thing and doing it properly.

Well, to a point. The code's probably just the Xbox 360 and PS3 HD re-releases tidied up, but even that's a massive improvement over the garbage originally released in 2007.

Called the Resident Evil 4 Ultimate HD Edition, it'll run at 60fps, and will be out on Steam on February 28.

All right! I was JUST getting around to playing RE4 (for the first time) and couldn't decide between gamecube or wii. Now I'm going with this. Hopefully it will support the 360 controller (RE6 did so I'm assuming it will).
