Starting March 29th Resident Evil 6 will hit the Playstation network, and Xbox Live Marketplace for $19.99 ea. Following suit, we’ll be seeing Resident Evil 5, and Resident Evil 4 find their place for DLC on the networks.
For those unaware, Resident Evil 4 was released on the Nintendo Gamecube in 2002, then RE4 was ported to the Playstation 2 in 2004. Resident Evil 5 hit store shelves on the Playstation 3 in 2009, and Resident Evil 6 came out in 2013. Although the latter two titles were flops, the franchise still lives on in the hearts of many fans worldwide.
