RE2 & 3 -- PSP

2 replies 2 views Edited Feb 16, 2010

I finally took the plunge and got a PSP-3001 to compliment my PS3.  I already had one PS1 classic (Silent Hill) and I copied that over and it seems to be working fine.

 

I was thinking now about getting Resident Evil 2 and 3 from the PSN store, because I only had those for my Dreamcast which broke.  Has anybody played either/both of those on their PSP's.  How well does it work?  I doubt speed is any kind of issue, the PSP is more powerful than the PS1 I bet.  Any control issues that would ruin the experience? 

Consoles: PS3 120GB Slim (bought 10/09/09), PS Move (bought 12/10/10)

It's perfect for PSP. The controls are very similar to Silent Hill, press R to aim and X to shoot. One thing I should note is that the analog control on PSP doesn't work like it does on the Dual Shock controller(PS1 to PS3), so to move you have to use the D-pad. I have no problem with the D-pad, in fact, I rather use the D-pad instead of analog for tank control games like RE, Silent Hill and Dino Crisis.

 

One quick question though, you're getting RE2 and RE3, why not RE1 as well?

I have the gamecube remake for Resident Evil 1, so I'd play that on my Wii if I wanted to play again.  2, 3 and Veronica are the only ones I physically don't have a system to play them on ... and 2 and 3 are easy to get digitally for PS3/PSP and the price can't be beat - especially with the price gougers for the physical discs which I'd really like to have but oh well.  Veronica's the only one I need to figure out, my son has a PS2 so I'll probably get it for that eventually.
