You won’t be able to pre-purchase Resident Evil HD through the European PSN, but Capcom will make it up to you.
Capcom confirmed today that you won’t be able to pre-purchase Resident Evil HD if you’re on the European PSN. The stated reason was that “a pre-order was not possible on Sony platforms.”
Usually this wouldn’t be that much of a hassle, considering the game’s size should be smaller than most modern games. However, because of how Capcom tied the cross-buy option to pre-orders, fans were rightfully fluttered.
Thankfully, Capcom said that it will continue offering the cross-buy promotion during the first two weeks of the game’s release.
Resident Evil HD is a remaster of the GameCube remake of Resident Evil. It’s out January 20.
