Personally I'd like a Code Veronica remake. Never played it back in the day. Heck even a crappy rerelease of the original would do me.

I believe you can find Code Veronica on PSN already. Tried it late last gen and I still enjoyed it. I would love a remake of the game as well though, it's definitely the one of best RE spin off game and has the quality of a mainline RE game.

It has almost outsold the original Resident Evil 2!

Important to remember these are shipped not sold. But it could easily outsell 2 with digital taken into account. My only worry is sales slowing down as the competition arrives.
