Resident Evil 5

Just found this in my inbox, courtesy of the good folks at Capcom.

We are happy to announce that the wait for new Resident Evil 5 content is almost over!  The new online multiplayer Versus mode will be available to download on Xbox LIVE and PlayStation Network beginning tomorrow, Tuesday, April 7, 2009.  For 400 Microsoft Points on Xbox LIVE, or $4.99 on the PlayStation Network, Resident Evil fans will be able to go up against each other for the most terrifying Versus mode to date.

Versus allows up to four players to match wits in online battles across two very different game types. Slayer’s Rule is a point-based game that challenges players to kill Majinis. In Survivor’s Rule, players hunt the most dangerous game, each other! Players can begin the hunt as Chris, Sheva or other secret characters, and choose from either one-on-one or two-versus-two team matches for either of the two gameplay styles.

Now, let the debate as to whether or not we should have to pay $5 for this content commence…

I’m not sure what the big deal was about this DLC. The Resident Evil series hasn’t been known for its multiplayer modes, so it’s not like there were expectations for anything beyond the available co-op. Is the content already on the disc, and you’re just paying to unlock it?
