Ever since Resident Evil 5‘s “Alternative Edition” was announced, gamers have been debating whether or not the content should be released as DLC. Today Capcom opened a poll allowing gamers to vote on whether the Alternative Edition should arrive in North America via DLC or on a completely new game disc.
Capcom’s Chris Kramer stated “[The physical re-release] makes absolutely perfect sense for the Japanese gaming market, where the uptake of digital content is a bit behind the western markets.”
Read on to find out how you can voice your opinion.
Kramer went on to say, “However, based on the success of the RE5 ‘Versus’ downloadable content, as well as digital-only titles like Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix and Marvel VS Capcom 2, we know that the demand for DLC in the west is huge…We’re gonna let the poll run for a few weeks, then present the team with the results and our recommendations.”
Resident Evil 5 Alternative Edition comes with a few major additions, namely a new mission and PS3 motion controller support. According to Capcom, the new content is also coming to the Xbox 360, however details are sparse.
