Shane Kim: RE5(360) was supposed to be Big Announcement!

This is just too funny not to post. In an interview with Game Informer, Shane Kim Corporate VP of Microsoft Game Studios was under the assumption that the Resident Evil 5 trailer shown during the Press Briefing was an announcement of RE5 coming to 360, when in reality we’ve known since TGS 2 years ago.

Kim: Yeah, but here’s the thing: I think one of the most important, subtle announcements at the Xbox 360 briefing is that Resident Evil is coming to Xbox 360. Yes, it’s from Capcom, who’s been a great supporter of us.

GI: But we knew that two years ago.

Kim: What?

GI: Resident Evil. It was shown at TGS two years ago.

Kim: No, but coming to Xbox 360.

GI: Yeah. It was at the press event.

Kim: I don’t think so.

GI: I’m positive. I was there.

Kim: Really?

GI: It was shown at both press conferences.

Kim: That RE5 was coming to…?

GI: Yep.

Kim: I’m going to have to confirm that. That was supposed to be the big announcement. Anyway, my point there though is that every major Japanese publisher is supporting the Xbox 360.

Heh. That’s funny.
