Capcom silence kiddy console name callers with blood, guts and gore

In a move that once again emphasizes the importance of exclusivity to Nintendo, Capcom have silenced the console's critics by confirming that Biohazard (otherwise known as Resident Evil) will find its new home on Game Cube. Remakes of the original games will follow the release of two new exclusive titles, staggered journalists were told at the press conference. Resident Evil series director Shinji Mikami explained that the first game to launch will be a shot by shot remake of Resident Evil 1 on March 22nd in Japan. The game will feature some incredibly impressive visuals - a lot of those on-hand were startled by the realism as Mikami proudly informed them these were in-game visuals. The original game remade will be followed by similar remakes of Resident Evil 2, Resident Evil 3: Nemesis and Resident Evil: Code Veronica. The two new titles are most interesting however. Resident Evil 0 and Resident Evil 4 will pincer the series between them, acting as prequel and sequel respectively, with 0 further into development at the moment. Both titles will be Game Cube exclusives. Capcom have said that the move will no longer force their users to buy multiple consoles to play Resident Evil games. "We've decided to focus on one console: Game Cube". Sony will no doubt be livid, but perhaps the move will deter critics labelling the Game Cube a kiddy console.
