    not a fan of exlclusivity these days, and usually what does exclusive mean? 1 week, 1 month, 1 year? but this could be a coop for M$ after the tremendous response Dead Rising recieved, M$ may have just thrown a wad of cash Capcom's way.

    If true, would this be a "Resident evil / Xbox" exclusivity or a "Capcom / Xbox" exclusivity?

    I wouldn't be really affected by any exclusivity deal as I plan to own all 3 consoles but I still find the concept distasteful at best. I don't mind the big three developing their own exclusivities buy I'm annoyed when they take over a developer or game franchise for the sake of exclusivity.

    I hope Microsfot won't get a complete Capcom exclusivity. Capcom make decent portable games for Microsoft's rivals in the industry.

    MRU, do you have a link for the above quote? I'd like to do some web sleuthing and see if I can find the original source for this rumor.

    They will NEVER get a full cacpom exclusivity unless they just buy them up lock stock & barrel.

    After all don't capcom make Devil May Cry and thats PS3 exclusive....

    So I think it's just a case of Capcom whoreing its big name titles out to the guy with the biggest bucks.

    I don't have a bad after taste because halo was enough for me to buy a xboxand halo3 will be enough for a x360. I loved RE4 on the gamecube and bought a gc just for it. After finishing it I did dump it but it was fantastic and its not a big deal for me if RE5 is exclusive to x360 as long as it comes out for it. Its not a dealbreaker for me - halo3 is the game i am keyed in on and mass efffect, bioshock, BIA:Hells Highway, GRAW, and Oblivion. But I won't buy any of the new consoles til next year at the earliest.

    Ah well. I might be bothered once I beat RE1, 2, 3 and 4. Maybe 0. Great games though.

    If it is true I give it 30days before its on the PS3/Wii. Exclusivity is not even a word with 3rd party companies anymore so its just hot air.

    Don't care for RE much anyway but if they(Konami) happen to F*** around with Silent Hill then I would freak out...Although I will get all the consoles.

    Bless

    this might be true but RE4 was first "exclusive" for the gamecube. Game of the Year awards and huge profit, so 6 months later it was on ps2.


    if RE5 sells well, it will make it to the ps3. just like RE4 and GTA games before it.

    There already is a Resident Evil title in development for the Wii. I don't know whether it's Resident Evil 5 or another title that is made exclusively for use with the revolutionary Wii controller (probably the latter), but there is one in development, so Capcom games aren't going to be exclusive to Microsoft.

    Daniel.

    Right on. It's called Biohazard Umbrella Chronicles. So far, all that's out about it is the name and confirmation. :(

    I don't believe it. As long as its on a console I own, I'll be happy.
