Rumor: PS3 Timed Exclusive For Resident Evil 6
A couple of weeks before Resident Evil 5 was showed off at E3 a few years back reports had emerged that the Capcom-developed game may have become a timed exclusive on the Xbox 360, after Microsoft reportedly offered them a lucrative deal. Well, now, it seems that Sony are willing to do the same, but this time for the game’s yet-to-be-announced successor Resident Evil 6 for the PlayStation 3.
From what I have been told Sony have already reportedly offered Capcom a fee which they are believed to be considering; the deal, if approved by the developer, will see Resident Evil 6 be a PlayStation 3 exclusive for at least half-a-year to a year; the contract is still reportedly under approval by Capcom so the length of the deal has yet to be confirmed.
If the deal is struck by both parties then an E3 reveal is highly likely, and will probably hold the same shock when it was announced Final Fantasy XIII would be going mult-platform. For the time being, this is just a rumor so take it with a pinch of salt but with Microsoft getting all the recent timed exclusivity deals (such as all Call of Duty: Black Ops DLC will arrive on the Xbox 360 first) Sony are looking to bounce back with a bang.
Capcom Global Head of Production Keiji Inafune had last year teased Resident Evil 6 and in doing so hinted at an imminent announcement.
Given the great success that supposed for us Resident Evil 5, we want that Resident Evil 6 leaves as rapidly as possible to the market. In fact, you will shortly have the news of Capcom about this…
