Speaking with Microsoft's Larry Hryb on his weekly radio show, Capcom PR man Chris Kramer said that both titles were big, but also that both titles were for "next year". Gasp!
What he means, though, is next fiscal year. Which runs April 09 to March '10. Somewhat less alarming, then, as most of those months fall within calendar '09, but don't forget, both Resident Evil 5 and Street Fighter IV turned up at the end of a fiscal year and not a calendar one.
Just keep that in the back of your mind, OK?
