Resident Evil 6: Capcom Issues Statement on PC Version Delays

thats not a statement, thats something pulled out of someones ass. All their games could come out for pc day 1, as their engine is made to work on pc/arcade machines and console. They delay on purpose because they think pc gamers who own consoles will buy the console version instead of pirating the pc version if there is a delay.

Actually, you can't just plop a game onto pc and have it run. It takes a lot of additional programming. You have to program it to install, run on various cpu's, and core setups, pc specific controls and menus, etc, etc.
Not to mention testing for driver support and correcting any errors and crashes.
The team is probably fully booked just working on the console versions.
I don't mind waiting as long as it's going to come out right.

they are probably busy unlocking the DLC that is already written on the discs for PC buy adding that line of code so that it is ready to play straight after install-unlike the console versions which come without the key data to unlock.

they also cant release 25 versions of the same game on pc, wish they were more honest. It doesnt tkae that much to make money with a pc version, just look at alan wake turning a profit in 48 hours despite being like 2 years late to pc.

Same with La Noire. They alwa7ys claim that we Pc gamers are all pirates, but a ton of Multiplats sell lik sex on the PC. Deus Ex, Skyrim, KoA, and now Alan Wake. XD, so much for PC piracy when all these games are turning good profits.

Maybe I'll wait year or so, and get Gold Edition because I know for a fact they will release it again with a different coloured sleeve. Plus it will come with all the overpriced DLC.

And now I am not going to buy it day 1. Why should i pre order or pay day 1 prices when others are doing the same and getting it earlier? Hit me up with those steam sales.
