[Update: Capcom announced today that the Resident Evil: Chronicles HD Collection will be available for purchase on the PlayStation Network starting June 26th for $27. If you're only interested in purchasing one of the two titles, they will be sold separately by July 17th for $15 apiece.]
All too well known for their nasty habit of issuing re-releases, ports, and slight upgrades for full sticker price, Capcom is back and at it again with Resident Evil Chronicles HD Selection. After originally seeing release on Wii in 2007 and 2009, respectively, Resident Evil: The Umbrella ChroniclesandResident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles will soon be back with a slight makeover for PlayStation 3.
Capcom is bringing the light gun shooters to Japan on a single Blu-ray disc on June 28. A downloadable release of the two games is expected on the North American PlayStation Network sometime next month. Aside from high-definition visuals, the enhancements include trophies, leaderboards and PlayStation Move support.
As was the case with Dead Space Extraction, No More Heroes and House of the Dead: Overkill, this is good news if you're a PlayStation 3 owner looking to get some use out of the white elephant of motion controllers. For anyone who has played these titles on their original platform, there doesn't appear to be much of anything to lure you in for a second on-rails tour de Raccoon City.
