Resident Evil 6 for PC Status

A post to an Ask Capcom Thread from Capcom's Christian Svensson explains that there will probably be a considerable delay before a PC edition of Resident Evil 6 is released to prevent another Resident Evil 4 debacle (thanks Strategy Informer). Here's word:

It is a small, but appropriately sized team working on the RE6 PC project. It is a different group than originally planned, lest it would have taken even longer than it currently will but this team will do a better job than what was being considered originally.

The process did not begin until after the console versions were complete, submitted, approved by console 1st parties to use that final codebase as the starting point.

It will be some time still before we provide details on release dates and PC specific parameters.

Projects like this you guys seem to think are "trivial" but they are not. When they get treated as trivial, you end up with Resident Evil 4 PC... which I don't think too many true fans were pleased with.

You do realize all of Capcom's games have been superior on PC?

Fucking morons, stop mouthing off like sheep and actually be knowledgeable about the topic.

RE5 on PC never saw any of the DLC that the console versions got.

SSFIV has some maddening things with its keybindings where even if you use a 360 controller, reworking buttons for fighting in game actually changes them on menus pre-game, too, making it a bitch to navigate.

Dead Rising 2 and DR2:OTR have an issue where if your sound isn't set to the right sample rate the game won't even launch. Has never been patched. Case 0 and Case West never made it to PC as far as I know, either.

Are they outright bad ports? No, not really. DR2 definitely plays better on PC since it ran like a dog on the Xbox. Each one of them has some kind of sloppy issue with it, though, or some kind of frustration, and a near total lack of after-launch support.

If they make it to PC at all, they get dumped on the platform and forgotten, hopefully soaking up enough money by name that they recoup the cost of the port. I love all those games, but even with better graphics and sometimes even running better on PC the only one I'd consider superior would be Dead Risinng 2 (and OTR, I suppose) just because it never ran well on the 360 in the first place.
