Resident Evil 5 Dates, 3D Benchmark

Capcom announces September 18 as the European release date for Resident Evil 5 for the PC, and according to Shacknews the game is due in North America on September 14. Word is the game will incorporate NVIDIA's new stereoscopic 3D glasses support, and an NVIDIA stereo Resident Evil 5 benchmark is now available to see whether or not the stereoscopic PC edition of the upcoming horror sequel will turn your system into a zombie (proper hardware required). The 581 MB download is available from NVIDIA's nZone and mirrored on ActionTrip, AtomicGamer, and ComputerGames.ro.

That guy's an idiot. The benchmark is fully running in both DX9 and DX10.

The only thing that requires DX10 is that NVIDIA 3d vision gimmick.

Uh oh, according to Gamespot, the full game will require DX10:

If that's true, Capcom just made a really poor decision.

However, both DMC4 and SF4 had the PC versions out about 6 months later (Jan/Feb-July).

Good point.. seems capcom is taking that joke known as the pc gaming alliance a bit seriously..

Mouse support?

From Andrew Burnes over at VE3D:

"Supposedly you lose the laser sight when using a mouse, and are instead given a crosshair."

I'm pretty sure this will have mouse support. Capcom has been putting a lot more effort into their recent ports. In fact, they may be doing the best ports of any publisher at the moment.

I was expecting the port, but what was unexpected is how soo soon..

re5 came out march 2009, pc version out september 2009.

re4 came out oct 2005 ps2, pc it came out march 2007.

devil may cry 3 march 2005 ps2, june 2006 for pc..

a few months versus about a year.. that's unexpected.

Looking forward to this. Been waiting for a PS3 price drop, to replace my stolen one. Missing out on quite a few great games, this being one of them. Will gladly pick this up on PC, assuming it doesn't get ravaged by "bad port" reviews at release.
