With a purported copy of the Sony-Capcom marketing agreement for Resident Evil (VII): Village sweeping the internet, many have asked about it's veracity and the functionality of certain of its provisions.

Join us as we take a look at why the language of the agreement suggests it was written by lawyers, why a 10 page document might make sense for an agreement of this type, and why folks may well be reading too far into restrictions on "parity" and access to "Game Pass".

It takes a Village to raise a console...in Virtual Legality.
