Capcom ponders Resi 5 demo

For Euro Extinction Blu-ray.

Capcom has told us it is mulling over the idea of including a Resident Evil 5 demo on the European Resident Evil: Extinction Blu-ray disc.

The publisher was responding after a Sony Pictures press release seemed to state that the US Extinction disc would include a demo for Resi 5 and Devil May Cry 4.

Not so, said Capcom over here - they are instead trailers of the games, and indeed trailers we have already seen.

However, this is a US-only promotion and nothing has been decided for Europe, and the publisher left it open-ended after suggesting it might include "something" on our version. That "something" would certainly help sales of the film.

Resident Evil 5 is due out on 360 and PS3 next year, but is a title Capcom has hidden from the public eye in favour of more imminent release Devil May Cry 4.
