Despite all the bad press coverage Resident Evil 6 has received, Capcom is not giving up on the game just yet. The company has taken the all-important step by making the title available on Xbox 360 Games on Demand.

Resident Evil 6 is a game that has been criticized by fans and critics alike, but this didn't stop the game from tasting an early success. However, the game failed to continue selling well after its first week, which forced Capcom to lower its forecast earnings for the current fiscal year.

To try and save the game and its earnings, Capcom has made Resident Evil 6 available digitally by making it downloadable on Xbox Live Games on Demand. And that's not the biggest surprise - Capcom also chose to drop the price of the title to $39.99, far cheaper than its physical media counterpart. The price tag is very encouraging, and has already caught a lot of attention on Xbox Live where thousands of gamers went ahead and grabbed themselves a copy.

Resident Evil 6 puts the player in the shoes of Leon Kennedy, Chris Redfield, Jake Muller the son of Albert Wesker, along with the sexy and cunning Ada Wong. Players will experience three different campaigns which, when finished, will unlock a fourth campaign that is all about Ada Wong.

Capcom is making sure new and early adopters have more reasons to keep playing with the recent multiplayer DLC releases. Not one of the best downloadable contents out there, but for those who enjoy the game a lot; this is a good addition to getting more out of Resident Evil 6.

Mobile & Apps had reviewed Resident Evil 6 and came away with the conclusion that it is an awesome game that deserves to be played (at least once), despite its shortcomings. At $39.99, Resident Evil 6 is a digital steal and should be picked up by those who were on the fence till now.
