Vote On Whether Resident Evil 5's New Content Should Be DLC Or In A New Box

The additional content announced for Resident Evil 5: Alternate Edition at Tokyo Game Show, which has Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine teaming up for a prologue mission against archenemy Albert Wesker, is coming to both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. In Japan, Capcom will be issuing a brand-new box with the additional content , but no decision has been made for over here. Why? Because Capcom isn't sure whether it should release a new package or downloadable content.

"Bsed on the success of the RE5 'Versus' downloadable content, as well as digital-only titles like Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix and Marvel VS Capcom 2," said Capcom head of public relations Chris Kramer on the Unity blog, "we know that the demand for DLC in the west is huge. More and more, gamers in North America and Europe want content immediately and are less inclined to be tied to boxes and packages."

In a freshingly honest move, Capcom is asking gamers to vote on its website. It's unclear how much influence the vote will have on the overall decision, but given Capcom USA's embracing of digital distribution in the past, if an overwhelming amount of gamers would like to purchase the content through a download service, it seems likely to happen.

The company did pull a similar move with Bionic Commando Rearmed, asking gamers to vote for what price they would pay for the downloadable remake. Capcom picked the price gamers voted for.

"Once we get it all sorted, we'll report back with an official announcement," said Kramer.
