Hope it isn't something cheap like a single player mini game that upto 16 of you can take turns on to see who gets the best score or something.

Actually that sounds about right...

How can they fit 16 players into an offline multiplayer match? Divide the screen into 16 sections? lol. Something needs to be clarified, Capcom.

The 360 only supports 4 controllers at once. Most people won't have more than 4 controllers anyway since it's pointless. The PS3 supports 7 controllers at once. So if it is indeed an offline mode, it will be a score-based take turns system. Further detracting from the "horror" element of survival horror and turning it into even more of an action game. Like L4D, Timesplitters 2's zombie survival or any other tongue-in-cheek zombie arcade game.

hmm so lan-gaming? do u have to connect many tvs and consoleS? or wahts the idea? i mean 16 people cant fit on the one screen. at least not if it still is resident evil 5. 0o i dont get it. im confused... hihih

PirateThom3611d ago

Yep, well, I'm guessing it's going to be 16 TVs/sytems or at least 8 TVs/systems with 2 people on each.

In this world of online, it seems redundant...

Dark_Vendetta3611d ago

It should be 4 TVs + 4 consoles (4 players on each console). At least that's how Halo worked

Without online capabilities this feature is totally useless to me. Not like I can really imagine any deathstyle matches with the gameplay for RE anyhow. I mean if they added the ability to shoot while moving it would work. Oh, well online co-op was already a huge unexpected plus. RE5 ftw!
