Capcom has made a rather strange statement concerning the revelation that you can't delete save data in Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D. Without clarifying exactly what the inability to delete saves actually means, it has said that the game's value as a used title won't diminish. 

"The game's value at second-hand in the UK is not affected by whether or not the game can have its data reset," said the company. "Customers in the UK will not experience a reduced second-hand value should they wish to trade in their purchase."

Wait, what?

I've never seen a publisher actually assure its customers that they can trade a game in, and to do so without even explaining the situation that led to this statement is just plain weird. Capcom managed to say nothing much about anything at all, yet somehow did so in the oddest way possible. I feel more in the dark than I did earlier.
