E3 2009: Capcom brings survival horror to Sony's handheld for first time in new adventure "designed specifically" for PSP Go.
LOS ANGELES--At its E3 media briefing today, Sony detailed a renewed push for its PlayStation Portable, from revamped hardware in the PSP Go (with native video-downloading features) to new games such as Gran Turismo PSP and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker. One more piece of news didn't get much real estate in the two-hour press conference that was already stuffed with announcements, but Capcom's Resident Evil Portable marks the long-running survival horror series' first entry created for the PSP.
Not only is the game made for the PSP, but according to Capcom's official Twitter feed, it was also designed "specifically for the PSP Go." Unfortunately, the publisher didn't specify how that differs from designing a game for the standard PSP. Little else is known about the game, but Capcom confirmed that Resident Evil Portable will be an all-new adventure rather than a simple port.
Don't rush out to stock up on shotgun shells and Twinkies just yet, given that there's still some time to prepare for the zombie apocalypse. Sony announced the game with a general 2010 release window at its conference, and Capcom's Twitter specified that Resident Evil Portable is still "a ways out."

gkhalifa: Maybe if they haven't said anything about the cancellation of this game... Who knows there could still be a glimer of hope
capcom if that project (Resident Evil portable) was canceled just tell us cause Ive been waiting for 2 years now!!!
i reckon it got canned. it is now june 2011 and nothin' and also again the PSP GO: screenshot = psp normal. so i wouldn't get my hopes up :( stupid capcom
Realy Liked the Game too Much!!! But my hands is tied from Budget.... Can't buy PSP Go! for only one Game!!! Sorry Capcom Suckersssss!
when is it going to come out!!!!....can't wait for the release date to be announced...well actually can't wait for the game to be released...
Darnasian is right, I have a psp slim and i've been waiting for this to come out and if it's just psp go that is gonna suck because pspgo is download only right and the only place to get a psn card is good guys and they took half an hour last time i got one. And i don't want to get a psp go either.
I really don´t think they gonna launch a RE for psp, because if capcom once in a life time intented to do it, we´re playng it right now. Don´t you agree?
Hi I agree with s52th would like to see another ressi game in the style of those classic ps1 games where not only are you killing zombies your also searching for items
this is awesome cant wait :D hope it has classic gameplay :D come on more details they said 2010 and its almost over!!!!!!!
no re4, i'll quote "Capcom confirmed that Resident Evil Portable will be an all-new adventure rather than a simple port."
Here says that the game is "designed specifically" for the PSP Go! But why did they showed up a picture of the game on a PSP Slim? I hope they were kidding when they said that the game is for the PSP Go because Go isn't the best selling console! The Slim is way much bought than Go! And designing that game specially for the Go will mean a total waste of a good game!
This sucks i dont want a PSP Go to play this game wtf!!! Capcom is gonna force me 2 get a PSP Go just so i can play this game.
This will be great. I hope they decide to make 2 and 3 for the psp too, they never got a true remake
@coolhardrocker nah, lol, but I meant we want new costumes we are bored about old costumes that's all, I have to ask you now are you serious with asking someone this question ? you must know a lot about such thing XD
i love resident evil!! i am so excited. i hope its for the psp original also. i will be so bummed if its not.
@Mohammad37 are you serious about the costume thing? that is kinda disturbing, do u get turned on by game characters?
Resident Evil for the PSP? Okay, you got me hooked. If this is done correctly, It could be one of the best games for the PSP, but this could very well be a disaster. All I know is that I'm hoping for a good one and I've got MY fingers crossed.
and yea, we want Jill Valentine !! with hotter costume lol, and the most important thing is a great mercenaries mode that contains all or most of the characters and their costumes, Oh god, I am asking too much XD, well we deserve this we waited more than 4 years since the first PSP released with no Resident Evil, so come on capcom do what you HAVE to do not what you want to do :D
Nah, the controls must be like Metal gear peace walker, this kind of controls make the player able to switch between 3rd ps, 1st ps and over shoulders !! go try Metal gear peace walker demo then complain me as much as you want ;)
FIRST WE NEED A NEW CHARECTERS SECOND NEW GAME PLAY STYLE GOES PERFECTLY WITH THE PSP THIRD DO NOT MAKE IT MORE OF AN ACTION GAME FORTH THE GRAPHICS MUST BE WORTH TO PLAY AND THANKS ANY 1 WANTS TO ADD .? SEND ME
dont make it like 4 and 5 gameplay, controls would suck, and please dont do an 'mgs acid' kidn of game, that SUCKED. A totally new gameplay and pleeeeeease outbreak style multiplayer pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeease.
I hope it will be like RE2or3 cuz RE4and5 are not survival horror they turned into action games without any thing except the characters from the old games ...
I Can't wait for This to come out. I love the RE Series. I think that this psp one will be amazing, who really cares if the controls aren't amazing. It will make the game even better. I don't see why everyones complaining!
what the heck, only for the psp go? this makes a big disappointment for owners who own a regular psp. I hope it will be available on the regular psp....
hope this game is over the shoulder like 4 and 5. the controls should be good. i mean the only problem with whooters on the psp is only one analog stick. resident evil only needs one analog stick.
