Microsoft is trying to be home of the zombies...


The first next-gen instalment in Capcom's lucrative zombie franchise, which was announced for both PS3 and 360 last year, was conspicuous by its complete absence from this week's pivotal Tokyo Game Show, despite being pencilled in for a release by March 2007 according to the Japanese company's (http://www.gamesindustry.biz/content_page.php?aid=19959#) own fiscal reports.
Industry chatter at the Tokyo event claimed Resident Evil's no-show is owing to Microsoft tying up a shock exclusivity deal for 360, with an announcement due at the US firm's X06 event in Barcelona next week.

We'll have to wait and see what tthe real deal is with this. If only Microsoft can get some solid action/adventure titles (like Okami 2) to the 360 and they'll be set.

I don't see that happening because they want the most sales they can get. Also they just announced PS3 only in japan. So they already are developing a ps3 copy. Even if exclusive it will be time only so they can expand to ps3 later... This I wouldn't hope on...

Well if that would happen, it would appear that i would have to buy a 360 so i can play RE.

Contrary to rumors circulating around, Resident Evil 5 (http://xbox360.qj.net/Capcom-on-multiformat-strategy-and-titles-exclusivity/pg/49/aid/67605#) is still scheduled for both X360 (http://xbox360.qj.net/Capcom-on-multiformat-strategy-and-titles-exclusivity/pg/49/aid/67605#) and PS3 (http://ps3.qj.net/category/Resident-Evil-5/cid/242). A separate Umbrella Chronicles (http://wii.qj.net/category/Resident-Evil-Wii/cid/2130) is planned for Wii.

Quit posting lies Mor.

If it says RE5 MAY be an exclusive to 360, that's not really a false statement is it? Especially considering what you knew.

What am I supposed to do :confused: :rolleyes: :tongue:

I don't know Mor. My comment came out wrong. I was trying to say that if saying RE5 may be a 360 exclusive is a false statement, then is the statement saying RE5 WILL be a 360 exclusive a true statement?

I was just trying to jerk your chain, not actually call you a liar.

they tried making RE exclusive with the gamecube and it didn't work. Dead Rising 2 might be a 360 exclusive though
