    I'm a bit hesitant to post this (I don't feel like starting a war today), but I thought this would be of interest.

    He's right that Sony takes a "see if it breaks" attitude. Both PS2 and PS1 have BOTH had nearly identical drive problems.

    Magic-box had a more complete account of the interview. At the end he appologized to Square, at least. He said he was kinda bitter that Kingdom Hearts sold so many more copies than Biohazard 0.

    Actually, it's not even the first version of Resident Evil, it's at least the fourth or fifth. I'd expect a highly original and creative game to sell better than a remake of a game that has already been remade multiple times.

    Mikami might not like it, but I don't think he decided to make RE on GameCube because of the good of his heart; we know money was involved. It's ALL business.
