Yeah, I'm not buying all of these recent $600 rumors. Doesn't match with what Dusk Golem is saying, who is about as legit as an insider can get (dude has leaked multiple games, including Res 8 months before the official announce). Doesn't match with MS delaying their Series S reveal and S/X Pricing announcements out of August, the only reason to delay those announces a 2nd time is to encourage Sony to announce pricing first so that MS can undercut them for the 2013 esque mic drop moment.
Haven't you heard, he's not credible anymore kappa
This Sony fanboy attempt to cancel Dusk Golem might be one of the most pathetic things I've ever seen, lol. The dude knows what he is talking about when it comes to Resident Evil development as he clearly has a source on the Capcom Res team, or else he wouldn't have been the first person to leak Res 8 details months before Capcom announced it, and he had other accurate Res leaks before that, I'm pretty sure he was the first person to reveal that Res 3 Remake was being made by external teams with Capcom assistance rather than an internal Capcom team. He leaked accurate Res 2 Remake and Res 7 details before that. And his source on PS5 struggling to run Res 8 at native 4K (so far) while XSX did it with ease, is clearly the same source on the Res dev team who leaked details about it to him months earlier.
Dude already said that he doesn't have any stake in the console war as he is a primarily PC gamer who plays on PS or Switch when he does play console. And he says he believes that Capcom will be able to get Res 8 up to 4K before release, it just takes more optimization work to do it clearly.
As for his statement about Xbox pricing, well that comes from a different source than the Capcom dev I think, so it might not be accurate, but it does make sense to me that MS would be willing to sell at a loss to undercut Sony this Holiday, especially with Halo delayed.
