Regardless, I think the DC had more RAM then the PS2. But I could be wrong.
If memory serves...
Dreamcast: System RAM - 16MB, Video RAM - 8MB
PS2: System RAM - 32 MB, Video RAM - 4MB
GameCube: System RAM - 24 MB, Video RAM - 16MB
In short, while the PS2 can typically push more polys than the DC and the GB, it also tends to look worse in doing so. Still, specs alone (and this is just the RAM!) aren't a good predictor of what a console is capible of and it's amazing what clever programers can squeeze out of a system. Just look at Panorama Cotton on the Mega Drive, Donkey Kong 64 on the N64, and the upcoming Black for the PS2 and XBox.
Bringing this back to RE4, though it's not as pretty as the GC version, I'm amazed that the PS2 port looks as good as it does. Even still, I don't want to have to buy it again for a few extras. No matter how much I love the game.

As far as I know Clover didn't do any work on Killer7, Ishmael.
The Killer7 delaying thingy occured in a long discussion with people from Clover and Capcom about the issues on BH4's PS2 development, the release of Killer7 and the playable demo of Okami. Basically it was all about how Capcom's execs weren't supportive of their studios, how Clover had no support and how teams for Bio4 PS2 and Killer7 PS2 had a hard time with their developments. From what I got then, Clover is apparently pretty independant - as in Capcom only assuming a publishing role and not really helping them with anything. But I heard local press people saying otherwise afterwards, so I don't really know who to trust, since the people at Clover are judge and party in this case and since my japanese is incredibly crappy (hence I might have misunderstood stuff). But as for the Killer7's delay comment, I am pretty sure of what I heard. They also said nothing about sequels.
Speaking of TGS, Iggy I am baffled by your lack of harrassment over the two Siren 2 DVDs I brought home for you and your friend. Because, as I thought you'd know, my TGS stuff isn't with the 60Kgs of goods sent to myself by boat. I took that home with me. And I almost walk on those damn DVDs every morning.
NOW IS TIME TO THE 68000 Z80 AND SH-2 HEART ON FIRE !!
