Capcom debunks Resi 4 on 360, PS3 rumours

PS3 and Xbox 360 "Classic Edition" is a fake, Capcom confirms

Capcom has debunked internet reports claiming that an updated version of Resident Evil 4 is coming to Xbox 360 and PS3.

Blurry photographs of "Resident Evil 4 Classic Edition" appeared on the internet yesterday, supposedly having been leaked from "Capcom's San Francisco building".

"I was sent this goody by a friend who works at Capcom's San Fransisco building. He spied an artist working on what appeared to be boxart for an upcoming port of Resident Evil 4 for the XBOX 360 and PS3 entitled "Resident Evil 4 Classic Edition," read the fakester's internet post.

A Capcom spokesperson replied on its official forum: "Wow. Really? We work in San Francisco? I didn't know that. Why does my business card say we're in San Mateo? Darn it, I need to get it updated." Looks like the faker should've done more research.

"Also. We have no artists that work in Dev here... Further more, All RE comes out of Japan. None of it comes from CEI."

A shame really, we would've played it for the Achievements alone. Cheer yourself up with some new(ish) footage of Resident Evil 5.
