Rumor Control: No game demos come with Resident Evil: Extinction

reemovie.jpgAn loyal Siliconera reader sent in a tip that just seemed too good to be true. High Def Digest claimed that the home release of Resident Evil: Extinction would come with two video game demos.


Additional supplements shared with the standard-def DVD version of the film (which is debuting day-and-date with the Blu-ray) include an audio commentary with director Paul W.S. Anderson and producer Jeremy Bolt, four making-of featurettes, eleven deleted scenes, and two video game demos (for "Devil May Cry 4" and "Resident Evil 5").


Playable demos with a DVD movie? Something sounds fishy about that. Perhaps they meant two video game trailers? I checked in with Capcom who informed me that is exactly the case. You don’t get to try Resident Evil 5 by purchasing Resident Evil: Extinction, but you do get a taste of the game through a trailer. The same goes for Devil May Cry 4.


< Spencer's note: Yeah, we originally debunked this three days ago on November 13th, but I'm bumping the post up because it's news now. Capcom also brought this up on their blog.>

  • There were quite a few movies that came with playable Xbox demos on the disc. So it’s not unheard of.

  • @JeremyR – Really? On the same DVD? Oh yeah Doom had that right?

  • I dunno about Doom, but Chronicles of Riddick had the demo for the Riddick game and some Star Wars discs had demos of Star Wars games. (I think the prequels or maybe the Special Editions, I don’t remember. I borrowed them from the library)

  • Chris

    The Hulk also came with one whole playable level of the game, which sucked anyway.
