Resident Evil 4's prime has been and gone. Still a good game but I already have it on PS2, PS3, GameCube and Wii. Crisper visuals and 60fps isn't going to make me buy it a 5th time.

I'm really hoping that this version makes it's way to current gen consoles, I certainly wouldn't mind playing it yet again.

There is no such thing as too much Resident Evil 4. Bring it.

And if you make the title Super Ultimate Edition you get the exact same game but in 4K.

If that happens you may start a religion about me.

Super Resident Evil 4 Ultimate XHD Turbo Edition : The Arcade,

that's the one I'm waiting for.

Game needs dynamic realtime shadows, it looks really outdated.

And after that, the next game in the franchise will be Super Ultra Resident Evil 5 Turbo: Ultimate HD Gold Arcade Edition.

This is getting ridiculous.

It's about time there was a decent PC version, although Capcom are about 7 years too late. This is how the 2007 PC version should have been like, but the PS2-based version they released for PC back then was a terrible port. I ended up playing the Wii Edition on Dolphin instead, because of how bad the official PC version was.

Never a bad thing to have more RE4, glad PC is getting a perfected version of the greatest action game ever.

This needed to come out 5 years ago. At this point who gives a shit? Yeah RE4 was pretty good, but it sucked compared to previous games and it was basically just a arcade shooter crawler with resident evil on the box.
