Resident Evil: Chronicles HD Collection hitting PSN

PS Move-enabled versions of Wii's on-rails Umbrella Chronicles and Darkside Chronicles hit PlayStation 3 storefront this June.

This summer, Resident Evil games The Umbrella Chronicles and The Darkside Chronicles will for the first time be made available outside the Nintendo Wii. Capcom today announced the Resident Evil: Chronicles HD Collection for release on the PlayStation Network this June.

A first look at Umbrella Chronicles in HD.

The collection includes remastered versions of Wii on-rails shooters Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles and Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles. Both games will boast high-definition graphics, trophies, and PlayStation Move support.

Gamers not interested in buying both games together are in luck. Capcom also announced today that both titles within the Resident Evil: Chronicles HD Collection will be sold separately at a later date.

Capcom made no mention of a price for the games, either bundled together or on their own.

For more on the titles within the Resident Evil: Chronicles HD Collection, check out GameSpot's reviews of 2007's Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles and 2009's Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles.

@rohn13 Here you have play no 2 from the Sony Defense Force playbook,"When the inferiority of the over priced internet ready blu ray player has been exposed resort to personal attacks." You did very where here executing that play. But if you're going to insult someone you really should learn to spell...braid dead???????? Yeah stay in school. ROFL. Oh and in case you missed it...

@buying1999 If you love your Xbox360 so much why aren't you playing it more, instead of spending your entire life being the world's most annoying braid dead internet troll.

@buying1999 Jesus Christ, are you even here with your drivel? Wasn't Lens of Truth enough for you? Just deal with it: The pS3 library is much better than your Xbox one.

@ BlackLense That's just an assumption, Capcom hadn't said anything about the game at all or whether if it was cancelled or still in development. The original image for the Resident Evil Portable game show what looks like a pack of zombies inside a shopping mall so I don't believe that Resident Evil Revelation is that game since Revelation hardly featured any zombies at all.

You're not going to get an HD port of REmake or 0. Ever. Why? The same reason you won't get an HD port of any game with prerendered backgrounds. It needs to be remade from the ground up.

@leeko_link They move that project to 3DS, its called RE:Revelations...

Well of course. This game is a perfect fix for the over priced internet ready blu ray player's copied wii-mote. You know the pink ball wavy around on a stick thingy. If you've already got a wii and this game then there's nothing to see here. "Xbox 360 is the BEST console EVER made." --John Carmack

@NS_Sonic204 I just dislike the Move. I mean sure the game's built for those control's but for me... nah.

REZero and REmake for PS3? Idc that they're ten years old, I'm still dying to play them :,/

Nice for the move to get some support, a friend of mine had Resi on the Wii and it was pretty decent, a HD revamp for the Playstation sure won't go a miss. Should do pretty well!

Ah there is more work to be done for us that never played these! When I get these 2, I will have got 8 sequels plus still Operation Raccoon city and Resi Evil 6 to come. I'm sure I won't get over these games, too inspiring to play. Go Capcom! Won't need the PS Move..hehe

OK knowing crapcom, they milk the $hit out of every game for all its worth,, so the only two games i really care about i wish they would make ports of, they are pretending they don't even exist?? i m talking about Resident Evil REMAKE and ZERO..every effing game capcom makes gets ported to every system down to a calculator..so what's stopping them from making REMAKE and ZERO HD ports for x360 n PS3....? i m so puzzled..it's been almost 10 yrs these games have been out...guess what crapcom? pass! i don't want these stupid games..next!

@hippiesanta totally agree! The RE4 HD remake was 15.99 pounds, ridiculous!!

"using the rip off PS move" Come on now, are people really still doing this?

using the rip off PS move no thanks, i prefer still playing it with the wii and playing the real RE on my ps3

So can you play this without move? I never got around to buying DC and would rather buy this instead of DC on the wii.

My ex told me Dead Space Extraction is a disaster with a standard controller. So I'm sure the same would apply here.

No Thanx. On Rail Shooters don't interest me. I will wait for RE 6. I'm currently enjoying MGS HD Collection and MGS 4.

I gotta admit, im not to keen on rail shooters anymore, but I think this might be something I might have to look into......anyone else??? but I will say this capcom: slow your role, your shoving out more titles in a 6 month period then anyone else this year...SMH (not that they are all good..but hey thats a matter of opinion)

TimboII

Hmm...kind of already knew they were coming out....dissapointing there is no mention of a price. Oh and for anyone thinking of playing these without the Move...don't even bother. After playing them on Wii I can't imagine trying to play them with a standard controller...the experience would totally suck. (my opinion, anyway)

Looking forward to this. The PS3 versions of Dead Space Extraction and House of the Dead Overkill were both great with the Move, so I expect a lot of fun will be had with these games also.

@TERMINATOR-SSD @samremnant yes you can play it without the move just use the DS3

NS_Sonic204
NS_Sonic204

The reason why it's not on Xbox is because it'd be awkward to play this with Kinect, the transition is not as simple as the Wii to the Move. Because honestly, as a owner and someone who enjoys both, they're very similar.

@pszone I totally agree with you. I think that every game should come out on every consoles.People with xbox should get the chance to enjoy RE.

Fuck --John Carmack and you Box boy. If xbox was so good how come they couldnt remake MGS4 on it huh.  Why is it kojima refused to do it, simply because Xbox hardware cant handle it period.
