The big stupidhead Internet rumor of the second was that Resident Evil 5, Capcom's zombie-shooting epic in-the-making, was going to an Xbox 360 exclusive.
Apparently, no one on the InterWeb remembered that Capcom had tried to make the Resident Evil exclusively for the Nintendo GameCube, and cut that — pardon my boorishness — crap the second it began to smell. Anyone who played Resident Evil 4 on the GameCube knew Capcom would be moving that title up to the deeeluxe apartment in the sky that was the PlayStation 2.
So. As if the matter needed clarification, Capcom said this today: “Just to be clear, [Resident Evil 5 will have] a multiplatform simultaneous launch on PS3 and Xbox 360.”
