First of all, I don´t have any real information for you in this post. I am just shocked by most people´s reactions to Capcom´s recent decision. Most likely, there will be no Resident Evil 5 for Nintendo Revolution. Allow me to be deliberately provocative now: So what? Sure, Resident Evil 4 was an almost flawless game and I very much enjoyed playing it. But its predecessors in the series were far from perfect. Controlling characters in Resident Evil Zero was like steering a car and quite frustrating to everyone but the most loyal fans. So why start whining about a game we know almost nothing about yet?
And even if the new installment lives up to its expectations, it´s still only one game. I very muched enjoyed playing Resident Evil 4, but to be honest I preferred playing Eternal Darkness and I preferred playing Metroid. I don´t want you to flame, I would just like you to realise that it´s just one game, albeit a good one. There will be other good games. And where is everyone´s excitement about a new piece of hardware gone? The way I see it is this: We will get a console that will feature something more or less groundbreaking. At the very least, the Revolution will have gyroscopic controllers. Some kind of haptic device also looks likely. Maybe there will be pressure sensitive pads, there could even be some kind of brainwave measuring device or maybe there will even be stereoscopic 3D projection or an augmented reality visor.
So let´s count our blessings. Don´t let this one announcement kill all your excitement about a console that really could turn out to be a revolution. Think about all the things the console could turn out to be... Until we know, this is a bit like the outcry about the lack of high definition. As I commented before, it´s asking for ketchup without knowing what´s for dinner.
