An internal email from Don Mattrick, head of the Xbox division, confirms Resident Evil 5 as a 2008 release. This is the first time any release date has been discussed for the game.
OH ok so if microsoft casually mentions the game as ONE of the games coming out on 360 in 08 i guess thats confirmation enough. Lot of ppl seem to have a lot of faith in msoft. Don't want to hate on RE5 i'm anticipating it too but way too many games coming out this yr(especially games i have been anticipating for yrs *cough* mgs4) so if it slips into 09 its fine with me. Regardless i don't think this is good enough confirmation. This is as good confirmation as an amazon or best buy or gamestop release date posting. Till capcom gives us the official release date its all specualtion
this game will move massive units on both consoles.
I'm sure as hell buying it :)!
release dates this early in the day arent worth the paper (monitor) they're written on!
EDIT: TANOD im not sure what that has to do with mine comment but, Resi is massive everywhere, and by the time of release so will the PS3 install base.
and in JAPAN a game sells either on wii or ps3.
same goes to europe
since ps3 has a decent base we will believe it when we see it
ps3 isnstall base are not gamers even fools like u know this they are blue ray fanatiics kid keep dreaming.a lot of devs will abandon the ps3 belive in me that is fact its a big joke.
im sure a while back you were claiming HD-DVD will beat Blu-Ray.....? another one of your quality prodictions.... basically id put my money on the opposite of whatever you say.
you know MS is always on the up and up with things, they're very believable. *Cough*RROD*Cough* *Cough*No HDMI Needed*Cough*
Vajkan says this is cool, even if i am PS3 it is nice to hear this.Why? Vojkan says its great that RE5 will use PS3 as lead platform(that is 100% certain since it is Japanese developer and Japan is big for RE) so Vojkan is very glad to hear this. Vojkan says 2008 is going to be greatest gaming year ever thanks to PS3 games like this one.
Vojkan says that he speaks in 3rd person like Dark Sector
I so agree with you. I give you a bubble since xbots are taking them from you.
Can't even spell your own name right... Vajkan???
ah yes the M$ bullsh!t machine hard at work- although kudos if they get it right
but I think its sth like dec 08 release.. not anytime soon..its one of the most important titles of capcom , christmas is a good time for them.. (not mine :P)
wait for the official release date..
@vojkon .. lol.. u mean darksniper ?
First time a release date has been discussed? So when capcom said it was going from an 08 release to an early 09 release sometime last year, what was that?
Cool if it does but i dont mind if it doesnt as the only game i want this year is MGS4 anything else is just a cherry on top of a already perfect cake :)
Capcom already said it was coming out in 09 didn't they?
You need to take a good look around here.
You havn't noticed the complete opisite of what you're saying 24-7?.
In my opinion its you guys that have probably helped Sony sell many PS3's due to missinformed spreading to people in 2nd world countries etc(or blinded anti MSFT folks).
Dam I can only imagin the damage you fanaitcs do in Europe.
Did you ever think that maybe MS caters too much for the English specking cultures, so the countries like Japan and Europe outside the UK prefer the PS3?
besides, the PS3 has a growing user base in the US and UK...maybe there’s a reason for that. Good hardware, good service and good games maybe???
It was the same to the tech for HD-DVD because there was little support outside the US, so of course it fell flat on its face.
damage? hey dude you spread more bullsh!t than me- comments like my previous one are just jokes- when im in a serious debate i use hard facts to voice my opinions- and hey if your words ever convinced someone to buy a 360, im sure they're very grateful now that they sitting around waiting for a replacement console and paying for a supposed "ultimate" online service that breaks down at a very crucial time and im sure that if they love watching films on disks- they absolutely adore you now that hd-dvd is dead and they dont have the best blu-ray player on the market (ps3)
however you are my favorite xbot since you usually make intelligent comments and don't just post incoherent BS like mesh1 and GITPWNED
u mean the only people who have brain live in USA ? ...
thats why its the only country that have Daddy HEADshots in real world ..
ravinash you did not just try to insuinate that japanese companies cater to countries outside of japan right?
if you did then let me commence laughing
*falls over laughing* hahhahha oh god... *laughs harder* hahahah ho hohoh hheheheheheh hahaa
ok lets see the japanese video game companies HARDLY cater to their consumers outside of japan, the japanese get vastly better translations, and perks for purchasing games, NEARLY every game over their comes out with a poster, figurine..ect upon purchase games wont even make it over here even though nearly every JAPANESe dev makes more money off the UK and USA audiances seperate then they do in japan.
Sony caters more to its japanese consumer and thats a fact.
How can you get that RE5 is coming in 08 out of this article. All this article states is that RE5 is going to find a home on the 360 nothing about it releasing in 2008 this is how bad rumors start and a lot of dissapointing fanboys moping around.
bubble for you. i 100% agree seeing as how there's no real concrete evidence of RE5's release date. not until capcom says so.
what the hell was the disagree for? (whoever it was)
is there a f'in release date anywhere in this article?
A. The contributor is a Sony fanboy trying to make MSFT look bad due to the info being false on his part.
B. The contributor is a MSFT fanboy trying to boast confirmation of the 360 version and for some reason lied about the release date.
C. The info is not true
D. The devs have stepped it up
E. Devs will release the 360 version when the game can be done which the 360 usually is faster to develope for not giving a fuc when PS3 fans get it due to working on it for along time and needing money.
F. A and B seem more likely with A probably being it due to the fact theres so many PS3 fanboys on this site they even control what news is comming in for the 360.
"Yes, it is true Resident Evil fans, the launch date of Resident Evil 5, which will be for PS3 and the Xbox 360, is pushed back to 2009! But not to worry, this just means that the team at Capcom is working hard to make the latest installment of the Resident Evil franchise better than ever. Despite the pushed back release date, parts of the story and news on the gameplay have been revealed."
What do you call that? Is this me spreading my propeganda to help Sony sell too?
Either the contributor made it up or MSFT's wrong or things have changed let it go. What does it matter the contributor lied?.
The article states a release date has never been discussed for the game. I said it was. You said I was misinformed. I said otherwise.
