Res Evil 2 and 3 $40 in US

Capcom goes back on its word, shock

Capcom has some explaining to do in the US after it went back on its word to sell the GameCube ports of Resident Evil 2 and 3 at a budget price.

US stores have been taking pre-orders for both titles this week, but instead of the tempting sub $20 price expected, GameCube owners will have to fork out a whopping $39.99 for these virtually unenhanced conversions.

But Resident Evil die hards (geddit?) in Europe are expected to be treated slightly better. A Capcom representative told Eurogamer today that Resident Evil 2 and 3 would be available at a budget price, although a final decision had yet to be made.

PAL release dates for the ageing pair is expected to be May 16, with Resident Evil: Code Veronica currently occupying a vague "pre Christmas" date.

But never mind unoptimised, rather pointless ports, check out our first impressions of the forthcoming Resident Evil Zero, due for release here on March 7th. A full review will be posted closer to the street date.
