Resident Evil 5 still set for simultaneous release


Yesterday the Capcom message boards lit up with explosive rage when a rumor circulated from PlayStation Lifestyle that Microsoft was attempting to secure a timed-exclusive release for Resident Evil 5. As posters pondered the possible position (sorry, had to do it) that Capcom was rumored to take, word came down that the rumblings were incorrect. "The assertion is false. RE5 is a multiplatform release that fits with our oft-stated crossplatform strategy," wrote Capcom moderator Sven (Christian Svensson, Capcom's VP of strategic planning and business development), later adding "for the avoidance of doubt ... simultaneous release."

So, why is this news? The confirmation that Resident Evil 5 will release on the Xbox 360 date-and-date with the PS3 continues to show the strong support Capcom has offered Microsoft this generation--something the original Xbox did not see (sup, Dino Crisis 3?). With titles like Resident Evil 5, Dead Rising and the exclusivity of the Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix beta it appears that Capcom has truly taken a middleground in this generation of consoles. And that's a good thing.
