Capcom's pulling the plug on its media-centric Gamers Day event, replacing the happening with another media-centric summit
called CAPTIVATE08 (get it? CAPtivate). This time around, however, the new event will open its doors to a few lucky members of the Capcom community.
Like the Gamers Day events
, Capcom promises a lot of announcements of new games, as well as updates on in-development titles like Resident Evil 5
and Street Fighter IV
. In its announcement, Capcom does not cite a primary reason for killing Gamers Day, but does state that five members of Capcom Unity -- think official Capcom
fan club -- will be able to attend the summit. More information is promised on the official blog. The 2008 summit will take place in Las Vegas this May.
