promote the tension so important to the series. Capcom has even addressed the issue itself on its community blog, which makes the following news rather puzzling:
During Capcom's Q3 financial results conference call (PDF link), a questioner noted that the Resident Evil 5 demo had "very poor playability" and asked for the company's opinion on the matter. Capcom's response: "We would prefer not to comment, as we haven't received any such opinion." No, seriously, that was the response. Possible conclusions to be drawn: (1) Capcom wasn't expecting this question -- hence the rushed and inconsistent answer; (2) someone is being less than honest; or (3) it's time to get the suits internet access.
