Capcom has just contacted D+PAD to inform them that the 2-16 player system link rumour revealed this morning is in fact an error. The rumour started when D+PAD spotted that the boxart of the limited edition steelbook stated that 2-16 players would be able to play the game via system link.
"It has been brought to our attention that the recently issued packaging for the Limited Edition version of Resident Evil 5 on Xbox 360 contains an error," said Capcom.
"It wrongly stated that the game supported 2-16 players via system link. The correct number of players supported via system link is in fact two. Please accept our apologies for this mistake and any confusion this may have caused."
