    NEWS: 28.03.07 Rumor: Resident Evil 4 Getting a Wii Edition? [Wii]

    Let's hope this is not one of those early April fool jokes, but it seems that online retail store GameStop published on it's page that Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition would be on sale on June 27th of this year, at a price of $29.99 dlls.

    As soon as people noticed the availability of this game and contacted GameStop about it, the retail store took down any information regarding Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition. Later on, Capcom was also contacted and the company reps would only reply with a "no comment".

    Now, this would not be the first time a retail store revealed the existence of a game before it was officially announced. Case in point, when EB games revealed that there would be a Ratchet and Clank for the PSP.

    UPDATED: It seems that an employee working for Blockbuster, was able to find Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition included within the movie rental store's system. You can check this image that the employee was able to capture: RE4 Wii

    The same employee, also checked the release date for Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles and it seems that it will be relased on October 19th, 2007.

    NEWS: 27.01.07 Resident Evil 4 was banned from AIAS award show [GCN/PS2]

    The Annual Interactive Achievement awards excluded several Capcom videogames from being part of the event, based on the fact that the said company refused to pay AIAS money to have their games nominated.

    As a result, some of the best games of 2006 that were developed by Capcom, like Okami and Dead Rising, were not nominated for an award.

    Last year, Resident Evil 4 was also a no-show at the event, which a representative of AIAS explained as follows:

    "According to the rules, you have to be a member for your game to be nominated," the AIAS rep said at the time. "There was a write-in option, and Resident Evil 4 got written in, but Capcom chose not to play," the rep said.

    A Capcom representative commented on the matter:

    "For last year's awards, so many voting members of the AIAS were upset that Resident Evil 4 was completely left off the list for awards consideration that the members themselves wrote in the game. Upon seeing the results of the write-in votes, Capcom Entertainment was contacted by the AIAS and told that the game would still not be eligible for any awards unless the company joined the organization. Our company was told, in essence, 'Pay to play,' a sentiment echoed in the quote from the AIAS representative."

    Capcom is not the only game developer excluded from the AIAS awards. Other publishers like Tecmo, Majesco, and Eidos Interactive have their games excluded from being nominated, because they are not members of AIAS.
