It would be less of a port than a recreation of RE5 using RE4's development, planning, and resource management processes.  Recreate the assets for the RE4 engine, start in a relatively bare-bones setting, then include more objects as available resources allows.

Dead Rising took the opposite approach and went to hell:  it tried to shoehorn the mall architecture/floorplan/loading structure onto Wii hardware, overshooting the available resources.  RE4's structure worked as it did because the architecture (and thus the size of memory-loaded rooms) was limited accordingly with the GameCube hardware in mind.  So in Dead Rising's case, a lot of resources are being sucked into rendering the different shops and shelves and nooks and crannies, leaving little for the actual zombie models and character counts.  A complete custerfluck.

Love it. 

First Capcom leaves Sony to develop for the Gamecube and Nintendo fans rejoice but when it does the opposite they pound-their-fists and cry like little babies.  :)

I wouldn't be surprised to see this title ported to WII 2. 

Its the cycle of life, my friend.

I'd rather they not port it, but make a new game instead.

I heard the later games in the series sucked so I would either want a new team to make a new Wii version or have them remake the first ones.

I want a sequel to Umbrella Chronicles that details the events of RE2, RE:CV, and RE4. I don't need RE5 on the Wii.
This would be my PSN Trophy Card, but I guess I can't post HTML in my Signature. I'm the pixel spaceship, and I have nine Gold trophies.

I just realized that I posted this in the wrong thread. I meant to post this in the Silent Hill on Wii thread. Silly me and having multiple tabs open on the RFN forum.   :-[
