Resident Evil is Now Available for Digital Pre-order and Pre-download on Xbox One

Game Description: XBOX BOX ONE GAME EXPECTED TO RELEASE ON 1/20/2015. YOU MAY DOWNLOAD THE GAME FROM XBOX LIVE BEFORE THEN, BUT IT WILL NOT BE PLAYABLE UNTIL 12:01 AM PDT / 3:01 AM EST ON THE RELEASE DATE.

The game that defined the survival-horror genre is back! Check out the remastered HD version of Resident Evil. In 1998 a special forces team is sent to investigate some bizarre murders on the outskirts of Raccoon City. Upon arriving they are attacked by a pack of blood-thirsty dogs and are forced to take cover in a nearby mansion. But the scent of death hangs heavy in the air. Supplies are scarce as they struggle to stay alive.

        It’s basically an up-“Res” (haha) of the already critically acclaimed Gamecube remake with only a few minor additions. I’m guessing it’ll be worth it for anyone who loves the series or has never played it.

      The mechanics may seem a bit – well, very – stiff to you nowadays, but of all the Resi series I think it has the best atmosphere. The pacing between the scares and senses of isolation and loneliness were abandoned in the more frantic later games.

        Well for me I don’t usually have enough money all the time to pay full price for a game, when I do have the money I like to pay off a game so I know I have it paid off, which is why I go to Eb games, I can pay off a game like 6 months in advance, I might not have the money within the 2 weeks of being able to digitally preorder the game, for games like halo mcc, farcry and ac I had those games fully paid off at Eb games like 2 months before, but cancelled them and got xbl money when I was finally able to digitally preorder them online, I would just prefer some extra time like Eb games gives

        I am among those who do not understand this.
        If some sort of emergency shows up and it is more important than gaming, you may want to have the money at your disposal. If no such thing comes up, you simply buy the game closer to launch.
        Why would you lend money to some company anyway? It is not like they run out of digital copies at launch. At least bank tries to pretend it is giving you some interest…

        Like

      • Corey Wisla

        Go to your bank and get a high interest savings account intended exclusively for your games budget(banks are happy to give you more than one saving account). When the game comes out that you want, take that amount out. This is the same as giving the money to ebgames to hold onto except you get some interest that may eventually buy another game.

        If something comes up when you need to buy something, you can go to ebgames just the same and get your money back(except no interest), so it isn’t like your money is locked when you preorder at ebgames.

        I have even cancelled an ebgames preorder (earned from trade ins) and bought an xbox currency card with it and went home to get a digital preorder when I decided I wanted a digital version of a game instead. They will sell you a currency code of any amount, it prints out on the receipt, so you don’t need to stick to 25, 50 etc..

        It could have been worse. I suppose for me, since I already own previous versions, it’s just not worth putting in another $20. I’d be more compelled to put another $20 for an updated Resident Evil 6.

        At any rate, considering the 360 Resident Evil games were frequently put on sale, I’m confident I’ll be able to get this one for $10 within 6-10 months.

      Original RE controls – Up = Character Forwards, Down = Character Backwards etc. It worked well because of the fixed camera angles. If it didn’t work like this you’d have to adjust your controls which each fixed camera change.

      IIRC it has the original and revised control options. Original D-Pad controls are the best:)

      Microsoft is not that big in consumer electronics. CES is not about software, Lumia or Surface have their own events and Xbox is mostly on gaming shows. That leaves their computer accessories.
      Microsoft plans some announcements later this month, most likely just Windows stuff, though.

      CES isn’t a big video games show and most of the time that stuff gets overlooked because of everything else. Sony hasn’t announced anything of interest in my opinion and I think they are just dumping that stuff here so they don’t have to bother with it at E3.
