Chris Kramer, Capcom’s Sr. Director of All Things Awesome, has publicly announced that the publisher has decided to scrap their yearly “Gamer’s Day” in favor of the more intimate CAPTIVATE 08 Media Summit. This three day event will take place in Las Vegas at the end of May, and well, Destructoid (read: me) will be there to bring you all of the new juicy info on games like Resident Evil 5 and Street Fighter IV. You do care about that stuff, right?
While it’s a new format for Capcom, press events aren’t all that uncommon in the industry. So here’s the cool part — Capcom are looking to pluck a few faithful members of their Capcom Unity community to attend the invite only event. Kramer doesn’t reveal specifics on how they’ll select the lucky few, but he does tease some upcoming community features which Capcom will be rolling out in “busted-Beta” form very soon.
To sum things up, the good news is that you have a chance to attend what will likely be a very cool media event. The bad news is that we’ll have to wait until June (when Capcom removes the media’s gag/embargo) for some decent Resident Evil 5 information. Can you guys hold out that long?
