Yesterday, Capcom officially revealed what some of us had already known -- there are multiplayer versus modes for Resident Evil 5. The catch? They're not on the disc, but instead are being offered as downloadable content for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, for 400 MS Points and $4.99 respectively. 

As with any DLC announced, especially one so close to a release (or in this case, before), people raised a few eyebrows. In a statement to MSXbox World, Capcom explains the decision to price the content.

"Although Versus mode makes use of the assets that exist in the game, the functionality is not currently in the game and is above and beyond the initial scope of Resident Evil 5," the publisher said. "We have never included a versus mode in Resident Evil before, and as well as the costs of development of the feature, there's also additional bandwidth costs associated with it."

As gamers, are you happy with this response? Do you accept the cost of the additional modes, or do you firmly believe they should have (and could have) been included out of the box? And do you think Resident Evil 5 versus will even "work"?

We're at the Dtoid offices this morning frantically putting together our HD Resident Evil 5 video review; the text is like, totally done, man. So check back later this afternoon for that thing we speak of.
