De gameswereld is in veel opzichten te vergelijken met de showbizzwereld.

Die gaat vreemd met die, die maakt een groot project met die, en die gaat bij die weg.

Zo ook Capcom...

De afgelopen dagen circuleren er allemaal geruchten over het Internet rond omtrent deze developer. Wat gaan ze doen?"Rumours abound of Capcom's imminent desertion of Playstation in favour of GameCube. If it's true, hopefully the result will be more titles of this calibre... But confusion still reigns over Capcom's decision to switch allegiance. Will Capcom's PS2 development wind down? And will Nintendo demand exclusivity from Capcom to its platform? Although the sequel to DMC and Onimusha are still going ahead on Sony's hardware, it seems likely that the movement across to GameCube will become more pronounced in 2002. Also, Shinji Mikami who is fast becoming the public face of Capcom does not believe that the PS2's dominance in the short term will last, underlining the fact that most of his previous projects - including DMC and Resident Evil: Code Veronica were opposed by his bosses."

So, what does this all mean? Well, according to EDGE, Mikami-San claims he was forced to develop games for PS2 even though he dislikes the hardware himself. Like the magazine says, things will become more clear in 2002.. probably as the next fiscal year approaches. Watch this space because Resident Evil was only the beginning. Vaagheid ten top natuurlijk...

Maar zoals de editor van cloudchaser al zegt: "Like the magazine says, things will become more clear in 2002.." Dat de hele vernieuwde Resident Evil serie "exclusief" naar de NGC kwam was al duidelijk, maar misschien moet je binnenkort wel al je capcomspelletje op de NGC doen....

Om maar met een oubollige kreet te eindigen:

De tijd zal het leren!
