When it comes to Resident Evil 5
cross-promotions, main character Chris Red
field isn't stopping at just having a red
limited edition Xbox 360--he's actually bringing in the American Red
Cross to host a blood drive. Blood is red
. (Okay I'm done.) In the LA area, Resident Evil 5
purchasers will be invited to give blood at the World of Wonder gallery on Hollywood Blvd. in Hollywood, California, on March 13 from 11 am - 5pm.
Just don't give them your phone number. Seriously. After the 56-day waiting period is up since your last donation, the Red Cross starts calling you every single night from "Unknown" phone numbers. Seriously.
Come Give Resident Evil 5 A Shot and
Make A Positive Change For the Community on Resident Evil 5 Launch Day
Capcom will usher in the launch of Resident Evil 5 (on Xbox 360® and PlayStation 3) on Friday, March 13th by partnering with the American Red Cross to host a blood drive. On the way to pick up their very own copy of Resident Evil 5, gamers in the LA area will be invited to give back to the community by donating blood at the World of Wonder gallery on Hollywood Blvd. in Hollywood, Calif. from 11 am – 5 pm. In addition, fans of the series will have the chance to get exclusive limited-edition Resident Evil 5 Blood Drive collectibles, win copies of the game, enter a raffle for one of several exclusive red Xbox 360® Resident Evil limited edition consoles and most importantly, do their part to help a good cause.
Kiosks showcasing the game will also be on-hand for fans to get a sneak peek at the eagerly anticipated new game before heading to retailers to buy their own copy. Generous fans who donate blood will receive exclusive Resident Evil 5 limited edition items created specifically for this event, including a series of hand-numbered stylized posters, bumper stickers, buttons and a chance to win a copy of the game or an exclusive red Xbox 360® Resident Evil limited edition console. All Type‘O fans will learn that they can B Positive agents for their community, and they will find that AB it of blood can go a long way.
