Resident Evil 1&2 on PSP/PS Vita?

16 posts in this topic

So has anyone here every played Resident Evil 1 or 2 on their PSP or PS Vita? If so, any glaring issues that make it an avoid at all cost deal? Or do they translate over with little to no issues?

Reason I ask is right now all Resident Evil titles are on sale on the PSN for the next week, and I can pick up 1&2 for a little under $6 since I am a + subscriber.

I honestly totally forget even playing these games, and am not sure if I even did play 1 myself as I was in college at the time. I definitely remember watching my one friend play 1 over and over, but I never played it myself I am pretty sure.

So considering how cheap they are, and they are considered classics, and I have a Vita, I figure why not. I should get to them at some point, like when I am on vacation or taking a plane ride. Will they hold up over all these years?

I actually went ahead and purchased both games. I figured I really could not go wrong for the price, and it is something I can play over the next couple of months on a plane ride or vacation or something. Still interested in hearing any feedback if there are any issues playing them on the Vita if anyone has any experience trying them out.

I don't have one, just a PS3, but I'm pretty sure it's the same store for all the consoles, and all the PS1 games on the store work on all 3 platforms. (PS3, Vita, and PSP)

Master of Unlocking, ya damn right!

That said, RE6 is a little under $15 for PS+ members. Has anyone played it? Is it total rubbish, or could i get by with at least one semi-enjoyable playthrough to make it worth it? I wasn't a huge fan of RE5, but I did rent it and almost got the platinum.

I am pretty sure all of the PS One games do not work on the Vita, only specific ones. Do not quote me on that however. They are clearly marked which ones do though, which is a nice touch. And most of the more popular ones do as well.

Actually I thought this may be the case, IGN has a list of the games that do, do not, and may work (Hopefully the formatting sticks).

Pretty damn good list actually...

This list shows the entire PSOne Classics library that can be purchased on the PS3 and then transferred to the Vita in North America. The games listed in bold indicate games that can be accessed directly from the Vita's PSN store. The games that can be found on Vita directly as of now are bolded.

Bolded entries are ones you can access directly from the PS Store on the Vita. The rest must be downloaded onto a PS3 and then copied over from the Vita (just don't delete the "installation bubble" on the PS3 before copying).

Honestly, I can't tell you how many nights my roommates and I sat up playing RE1, beating it in the 3hr. timespan numerous times.

Master of Unlocking, ya damn right!

That said, RE6 is a little under $15 for PS+ members. Has anyone played it? Is it total rubbish, or could i get by with at least one semi-enjoyable playthrough to make it worth it? I wasn't a huge fan of RE5, but I did rent it and almost got the platinum.

If you played RE5 and got the platinum, I think you will like RE6 just as much if not more actually. Now I never beat it, but I did play about 6 hours or so (I rented it) and it was basically RE5, but better I thought. Now obviously that is not saying all that much, RE5 was pretty damn bad, but 6 was better for sure I thought. So for $15, if you are looking for something to play, I think it is worth it at that price. (Y)

Reading that list is like looking back my youth. So many games there i used to play on my PSone.

I remember when i first got Resident Evil 2. I think i played it for days. I was really good at that game. I could do some pretty good speed runs through it.

I think if i played it today i would go insane though. The controls were a nightmare.

Could Tombi! (Tomba! for you Americans) be the best PSone game?

Tombi! 2 was a pretty good effort too.

Just to touch on that for a moment: I enjoyed RE5, but the main enjoyment was from playing with a friend of mine. I've got RE6 and have played maybe 2 hours so far just solo...there are some great improvements over RE5 (finally, I can move and shoot!) and it feels more claustrophobic than RE5 (I consider this to be a good thing in a survival horror) but there is something that just hasn't grabbed me yet. I'm going to see if I can get my roommate to give it a whirl with me at some stage to get a better comparison, but I seem to remember that he isn't much of a gamer these days so it might be difficult. What I should really do is run through the campaign on easy-solo so that we can unlock the mercenaries mode.

I can't really compare RE6 to titles before 5 though, as I've only seen others play those.
