Vote and/or die with Resident Evil 5


The announcement of Resident Evil 5: Alternative Edition/Director’s Cut/The Extended Trilogy took many of us by surprise, but it would seem Capcom doesn’t want to keep us in the dark about anything else. Instead of just announcing the update is to be one way or the other, the Japanese developer is putting a decision to the public. Namely: should the game be a fully-boxed, shop release or DLC?

Speaking on the Capcom Blog, ‘Kramez’ said:

Here’s where we’re at: in Japan, Alternative Edition will be released as a new physical package, with all that entails: new box art, new manual, new shiny disc, another plastic box to add to a tottering stack of console games. This makes absolutely perfect sense for the Japanese gaming market, where the uptake of digital content is a bit behind the western markets. However, based on the success of the RE5 ‘Versus’ downloadable content, as well as digital-only titles like Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix and Marvel Vs Capcom 2, we know that the demand for DLC in the West is huge. More and more, gamers in North America and Europe want content immediately and are less inclined to be tied to boxes and packages.

And we can’t say fairer than that. Head to the Capcom Blog for more information and to rock your vote.
