2011 is one crazy year for the PlayStation 3, with Killzone 3 launching yesterday, inFAMOUS 2 in just a few months and Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception at the end of the year, our wallets get thinner by the second.
But what if I told you that Sony might have paid Capcom a large wad of cash to make Resident Evil 6 a timed exclusive for the PlayStation 3? Speechless? Yeah.
Games On Net reports that Resident Evil 6 will potentially be an exclusive game for the PlayStation 3 for up to a year, similar to Resident Evil 4’s Gamecube exclusivity in Q1 2005 and release to PS2 in Q4 2005. With GDC coming up this March 1st, it would be a perfect time for SCEA to make this announcement.
To further support this rumor, Alyson Court, the voice of Claire Redfield since Resident Evil 2, recently posted on her Twitter account stills of an audio recording session. When pressed for information in regard to weather this project has been announced, she only gave:
haven’t mentioned this one yet. Top secret, under penalty of death 😉
Considering Claire hasn’t had her own game in ten years, it wouldn’t seem unlikely for her to star in the next RE title. (Jill has Revelations, Leon is starring in Damnation, and Chris just finished Resident Evil 5.)
And finally, if you really think about it, it’d be a CASH cow for Sony. With Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition’s PlayStation Move support, we can assume that Resident Evil 6 will support the same. In addition, this would be the checkmate to motivate many non-PS3 owners to finally pick one up. Sony could bundle Resident Evil 6 with the PS3, a Move controller and PS Eye.

People are extremely angry as am I that Capcom is adding Move support to Resident Evil 5 Gold Edition and not the original Resident Evil 5. They claim that they cannot patch the original game so that it supports Move due to technical reasons. I have a hard time believing this to be true. It just doesn’t make sense how seemingly identical games could be different enough to cause that much of a problem. It just seems like Capcom isn’t trying at all and are only doing this to make a bigger profit.
It makes absolutely no sense why the RE fans that went out and bought the game when it was first released are being snubbed over people that waited over a year. It sends a message that the people that supported their game from day one are less important, and that maybe we should all wait a year to buy games just to make sure that we don’t miss out on a better version of the game that has more options and better support. If more fans did this, companies wouldn’t have made enough money on the game to make a gold edition in the first place.
I get that video games are a multibillion dollar business and that companies make games to make money but we aren’t stupid. We have a pretty good idea when these companies are just trying to milk us and this is one of those times. I mean Capcom has been doing this to fans for years. We have all seen them milk game properties like Mega Man and Street Fighter II. At what point is enough, enough

A year after Resident Evil 5’s release, we have the first DLC that isn’t multi player but has it been worth the wait? The short answer is yes but the long answer also includes the fact that it is a bit short. At least then they added some extra characters for the Mercenaries mode and 5 trophies.
