Aside from a lifetime of nightmares, there's no longer any reason not to try out Resident Evil 4 for the GameCube. Capcom today announced that the game has achieved Player's Choice status for Nintendo's console, meaning it will be repackaged with a new price tag of $19.99, down from $39.99. However, the PlayStation 2 version of the game remains priced at $39.99.

The game, which reinvented the zombie-slaying franchise, has been lauded by critics and fans alike. Though it was released in January 2005, it still grabbed several Game of the Year awards for last year, including GameSpot's editors' and readers' choice awards.

The game sees secret agent Leon Kennedy, a veteran of Resident Evil 2, on a quest to find the US president's missing daughter. His search brings him to a mysterious village in Europe, where a great evil has grabbed hold of the populace. Armed with upgradable pistols, shotguns, and rifles, Leon takes on all manner of beasts to fulfill his mission.

Though Resident Evil 4 spent a good part of 2005 as a GameCube exclusive, it found new residency on the PlayStation 2 in October. Now it appears that the game may be infecting another platform, the PC.

According to retail site, Resident Evil 4 for the PC is scheduled to hit Europe in late March. It wouldn't be the first time PCs have faced Capcom's fears--Resident Evil, Resident Evil 2, and Resident Evil 3: Nemesis have all found their way onto the PC. US Capcom representatives told GameSpot that no official announcement has been made.
