Since I received two separate IM's about this I figured I could post it. Apparently Resident Evil 5 is going to be the first Resident Evil title ever simultaneously released on multiple consoles at launch. This Resident Evil also has some online modes of play but Capcom's R&D Chief Keiji Inafune wouldn't elaborate.
Essentially I think Capcom has realized the cash-cow that is the coveted multiple system release (kind of like a multiple orgasm for a game company). They saw how gamers who were too console loyal to do anything else ate up Resident Evil 4 on the PS2Ã¢â‚¬Â¦ I knew one guy who was about one week from buying a Gamecube JUST to play Resident Evil 4.
Also I'd really like to think they do something better with the Ã¢â‚¬Å“online gameplayÃ¢â‚¬Â than simply doing another Resident Evil Outbreak. Or for Christ's sakeÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ if you're going to make another Outbreak gameÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ give us some sort of SPEECH SYSTEM!!! I'm hoping however they're planning a little larger than thatÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ maybe like an online war game with Xbox360 zombies versus PS3 zombiesÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ that would be great. =)
