Capcom Sale On PlayStation Store Has Big Savings On Resident Evil Titles


It’s officially summertime, and with the sun comes a plethora of tempting sales across all video game platforms. We’re currently deep into the annual Steam Sale, with the PlayStation Store also offering a big range of discounts. But now we have a fresh new batch of deals, with Capcom titles seeing big price cuts across the board on PSN.

Major franchises like Dead RisingDevil May Cry, Mega Man and Street Fighter have all seen cuts of around 50% to their usual price. But for me, it’s their selection of Resident Evil games that are the stars of the show.

We’re sure you’ll already own a couple of these, but this would be a great time to fill out any holes in your collection. Here’s the full rundown:

  • Resident Evil 0 — $9.99 — Save 50 percent
  • Resident Evil Remake — $9.99 — Save 50 percent
  • Resident Evil 2 Remake — $41.99 — Save 30 percent
  • Resident Evil 4 — $9.99 — Save 50 percent
  • Resident Evil 5 — $9.99 — Save 50 percent
  • Resident Evil 6 — $9.99 — Save 50 percent
  • Resident Evil 7 — $16.99 — Save 15 percent
  • Resident Evil 7 Gold Edition — $29.99 — Save 40 percent
  • Resident Evil X Code Veronica — $8.99 — Save 40 percent
  • Resident Evil Revelations — $9.99 — Save 50 percent
  • Resident Evil Revelations 2 — $14.99 — Save 50 percent

If I had some spare cash lying about, the two to prioritize would definitely be the Resident Evil 2 remake and Resident Evil 7: Gold Edition. Resident Evil 2 was met with universal critical and fan acclaim on its release earlier this year, being praised for managing to translate the essence of the 32-bit original to modern consoles while maintaining the same feeling of tension and terror.

But as good as that is, I’ll always have a soft spot for the excellent Resident Evil 7, which is genuinely the scariest video game I’ve ever played. Maybe part of that is because I played the entire game on PSVR, an experience that left me shaking and sweating as I tried my best to hide from the hideous Baker Family.

But there’s little in here that won’t satisfy someone looking for a scary time. Resident Evil 4 remains a classic of the genre, and the GameCube era remake of the original Resident Evil has aged like a fine wine. The only ones I’d maybe avoid are Resident Evil 5 (which really requires a co-op partner to be truly enjoyable) and Resident Evil 0, a fiddly and unnecessary prequel.
