Capcom Explains 'Resident Evil' Multiplayer Pricing


Posted March 13, 2009 - By Stephen Johnson

Resident Evil 5

As you probably have heard, Capcom has made the peculiar decision to charge customers for multiplayer in Resident Evil 5. The deal works like this: If you buy the game, you get the single-player, but the multiplayer is only available if you buy the downloadable content.... so everyone is asking: What is Capcom thinking?

Well, here's what Capcom's thinking, in the form of the official word from the company:

Although Versus mode makes use of the assets that exist in the game, the functionality is not currently in the game and is above and beyond the initial scope of Resident Evil 5. We have never included a versus mode in Resident Evil before, and as well as the costs of development of the feature, there's also additional bandwidth costs associated with it.

I hope this helps clarify the need to charge for this additional feature.

What do you think? Good enough explanation?
