Hard to find Resident Evil ad?
I've always loved this ad for some reason. I think Virgin was
responsible for doing it back in the day when the first RE was
relatively new in Europe.
I couldn't find another pic anywhere now though, and this one
came from an old gamefan. Does anyone have a high res or at
least clear picture of this?

Hahaha, never seen this ad before, but I do like it. :nod: Hi-Res would be nice indeed.
I can't remember if I scanned that or if I took a pic with
a shakey digital camera.. I think it was the camera.
Either way, I figured I could scan it if I removed the page
from the gamefan but I was hoping for a really clear large
picture without the grain of the paper it's on.
I remember when that was plastered on billboards when it first came out, hehe looking back im suprised they got away with it as its pretty gory.
I think this ad was featured in one article about violence on videogames, focused mainly on the original Playstation (it featured RE, Tekken 2 , Time Crisis or Legacy of Kain with classics like GTA or Carmaggeddon) in one old magazine (I'm not sure, perhaps an OPSM?). I'm not 100% sure it appeared in this article though. If I find the mag I'll try to scan it.
Always been a fan of Sony ads (particularly PS1), even if this one's from Capcom.
Argh, I know I used to have magazine's with this advert in, but I think they got thrown out when I moved. Just dug out my old CVG's and PlayStation Pro's, but no luck.
I think the article Crescent mentions may be something to do with the "Official PlayStation Horror Special"? - which I used to have :(
