Resident Evil 5 and XBox 360
Yay… ok, I already knew RE5 should come out on XBox 360 as well… but I still didn’t know it would be released simultaneously for the two consoles.
Here are some words from Capcom Research & Development div. Chief, Keiji Inafune:
“We want to grow the Resident Evil series into a multi-platform franchise, so we hope to release it simultaneously, but since we don’t know the launch period for the PS3 yet, so it’s hard to say.”
– he’s obviously talking about ps3 and Xbox –
Talking about zombies, Inafune said that their first project for XBox 360, Dead Rising, will probably come out in Summer 2006. But I’ll be swimming and surfing, while waiting for my PS3 :D
Also he revealed that Microsoft asked Capcom to make an original XBox 360 game specifically developed for Japanese consumers (bah), but they declined (fortunately). Inafune stated that Capcom’s aim is to release games that will be a global hit, they just don’t care about the war in act between Xbox 360 or PS3.
