We talked about ResidentEvil.net -- Capcom's answer to services like Bungie.net and Battlelog -- last week, but now Capcom's just given us access to a handy video that explains the site's features and demonstrates its look.

For those of you who want a text-based list of features:

  • Comprehensive stat tracking -- Enemies killed, weapons used, medals earned and more
  • Compare your game with those of friends and other Resident Evil 6 players around the world
  • Link your status with Twitter & Facebook
  • Share your latest achievements with friends
  • Receive alerts when your high score has been beaten
  • Free Smartphone App to launch alongside the service, for iOS Android and Windows Phone
  • Earn RE.Net points just by connecting to the service or entering events
  • Exchange points for cool items including additional Mercenaries costumes or figures to place in your very own Resident Evil diorama
  • Compete in regular organised events
  • Compete in these special events to win the ultimate accolade, the Champion’s Belt

Personally, I love it. This is a feature that adds to the game, but isn't necessary... and will keep die-hard fans like me returning for more. The Champion's Belt will only be issued to one person in the world at any given time... and in my opinion, that's a bit much. I'll never even get close to coming near it.

Resident Evil 6 launches on PS3 and Xbox 360 on 2 October, and later on PC.
