Dino Crisis, Resident Evil 2 & Resident Evil 3: Nemesis Hitting PSN

500°
245w ago - Update: Although not definitive, The-NextLevel.com reports that Capcom's Chris Kramer stated the games will be out "within the next three months."

A few months ago it was first reported that Capcom classics were making their way to Sony's PlayStation Network.

Today the green flag was given to three more, specifically, the ESRB has now rated Dino Crisis, Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3: Nemesis for the PS3.

However, no release dates have been given at this time.

To quote: "The ESRB site doesn't have the search fields in the URL so we can't give you links to the ratings for the games, but search for them and you'll see the newly added 'PlayStation 3' platform under each one.

No dates yet, of course, but presumably we'll see these on our Store sooner rather than later."
 

Dante's Inferno Says No to PC Gamers, Hitting Console Platforms

100°
248w ago - Sorry PC gamers. Dante's keeping his Inferno to himself. Speaking with Big Download, an EA PR rep shot down any hopes of a PC version of the hotly anticipated game.

To quote: "When Dante's Inferno was originally announced in December, we attached no platforms to the project. When we came out with a first look for press in February we announced 360/PS3 and then in April we announced PSP.

We never announced a PC SKU nor are there plans for any," the rep said.

Oh well. Maybe PC gamers will have better luck the next time a major publisher decides to turn a contemplative literary masterpiece into a decidedly violent hack 'n' slash.
