Ressie 5 heading for PS3-only in Japan?

Rumours that Capcom won't bother with Xbox 360 version in land of Rising Sun

Somewhat plausible rumours are circulating that, in Japan, Capcom's eagerly anticipated Resident Evil 5 will get a PlayStation 3-only release.

Which would make sense, given the spectacularly poor sales of the Xbox 360 in Japan -- despite the fact that Capcom has announced that it is working on both Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the zombie-crunching game.

Whatever happens, we lucky European types should get both versions of the game, as well as a Wii version, which is likely to be substantially different to its next-gen peers.

If you're a flash Japanese-speaking git, you can check out ECGeo, the source of the rumours. Alas, it looks as though we'll have to wait ages for Ressie 5 which, after the sheer awesomeness of RE4, is set to be one of the most anticipated games ever.
