Did they just manufacture some more copies or did they find a big leftover shipment somewhere? I thought these titles were scarce and hard to find new =] Either way, very good deal if you want to catch RE1 and RE2 on the gamecube. From the look so the game artwork, it looks like the graphics have been improved a bit over the PS1 versions.

Seems like a good deal, considering how rare it is or was. I think I'll wait for the PSN release, which should upconvert to 1080p.

Interesting! Where'd you find out about this info? I tried googling but couldn't find any sites that would produce numbers on how many games are produced by each publisher, etc.

But if it's a port, then it wouldn't have the improve graphics that the GC version has.

Is there anything of note about the GC version btw? Like extra stuff, bugs, glitches, etc.?


What little improvements is not noticeable and honestly the PSN version is 'likely' to be half the price or cheaper (10$ like Castlevania or 6$ like every other PS1 game).

Still though, for those that collects these stuff. It's a great deal nonetheless. Just saying that a better deal might come soon.

My issue with PSN releases is that you cannot sell them when you are done with them.

I prefer phyiscal media that is not tied to an account ... one reason why I have shifted from PC gaming to Console gaming. With all the Steam activations and limited installs, I was building a large library that I was permanently stuck with.

Me too, but more because I like to have the game to stick on a shelf and look at.

What I want to know is why RE:CVX on the gamecube is so much harder to find and more expensive than any of the other RE games on the system.

I have noticed the same thing. The game is too expensive for my taste, and is impossible to find anywhere but ebay.

It's worth 20 bucks if it's absolutely the only way you can play it, but you can get the Dreamcast or PSX version for cheaper I'm sure, and it would look better (particularly the Dreamcast version).

That because RE Remake and RE Zero both became Player Choice, and RE 2 and 3 got a reprint. CVX didnt get a second print.

Well I kinda assumed that at this point , it was more a question of why RE2 & 3 got a reprint , but CVX didn't?

Maybe it was because the PS2 version was (and still is) pretty cheap and easy to find , whereas the others are PS1 games that aren't readily available.

I currently own all the RE-Rereleases on Gamecube except for CVX as it is too damn expensive. However if they put the games out on PSN then I'll be buying all three again just to bring them along on the PSP.

By the way, the Resident Evil port on DS is really fun if you like the original RE game over the Gamecube remake (which I'm not really a fan of)

When they did the reprint in 2006 RE2 and 3 were rare, but you could still get RECVX for a reasonable price.

Thanks OP. I'll consider picking these up as I've been waiting for them to drop in price.



Still not cheap enough in my book.
Gaming is a great stress reliever. It better be for all the darn frustration it creates.

I actually found RE:CVX during one of those infamous Circuit City sales a few years ago for $5.99. Man I miss those sales.

Wish people hadn't jumped on this yet, it would've gone lower. It had been this price for 6-12 months. Oh well, it's now available for $19.74 shipping included from Hubbagames.

same exact thing, if your PS1 discs are in good working condition and you have a system to play it on, I would not buy it.

I've been looking for a copy every time I go to a game store for at least the past two years, and have yet to see an actual copy of this game...

That's odd, the GameStop by me typically has multiple copies of it. They probably still have the one I traded in back a few months ago.

IIRC, the Gamecube versions were ports of the Dreamcast versions, and not the PS1 versions.
