Wow, now this is something interesting. We’ve known for a fact that the PC port of Resident Evil 4 was awful, since its development was outsourced to Sourcenext, but it’s shocking to hear that Capcom is so ashamed of it, that they’d prefer to simply forget about it and not make it available to any digital stores. Yes, Resident Evil 4 was one of the worst ports we’ve ever seen and in par with Sourcenext’s other PC ports, like Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition and Onimusha 3: Demon Siege, but we certainly didn’t expect that reaction from Capcom.
That was revealed by Capcom’s Svensson. When a fan asked Capcom to re-release Resident Evil 4 in some digital stores, Sven said:
“Sorry, but there’s enough people at Capcom who aren’t happy with that version and would prefer it not be in the digital marketplace.”
Although Resident Evil 4 PC was mediocre as a port, its community has managed to fix many of its issues. Therefore, we’d suggest Capcom to release a version with most of those mods implemented to it and call it something like ‘Resident Evil 4: PC Enhanced Edition’. Now that would be really cool, though it won’t happen anytime soon.

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
