Capcom have confirmed that resident Evil 5 will be appearing on the PC “later in the year”, as well as Street Fighter IV and Bionic Commando in July. Capcom says that “all three games will be optimized for the PC platform and will have new PC-specific features added to the already great games.” Bionic commando is set for console release on May 19, by the way. Hit the jump to see how the PC versions will be better than the console ones.
Street Fighter IV
The PC version of Street Fighter IV will feature online play, higher screen resolutions and three new shaders based on three of the “artistic” trailers released in 2008 that will change the visual appearance of the game: “watercolor,” “posterization” and “sumi-e ink” styles.
The PC version of Bionic Commando will support higher resolutions than the console version, remappable controls including mouse and keyboard support, support for both DirectX 9 and DirectX 10 and online connectivity for multiplayer sessions.
Resident Evil 5
The PC version of Resident Evil 5 will feature online play for co-operative play sessions over the internet and will also take advantage of NVIDIA’s new GeForce 3D Vision technology (wireless 3D Vision glasses sold separately).
