Resident Evil 2 (Prototype)

The prototype version of Resident Evil 2 (a.k.a. BioHazard/Resident Evil 1.5) featured a Pepsi machine in place of the final release’s generic soda machines. Thanks for the screenshot, @expaja!

While the Coca-Soda machine in the screenshots below wasn’t part of Capcom’s Resident Evil 1.5, dedicated fans patched it in later in their quest to “complete” the prototype.

Habbo Hotel

In 2003, online hangout Habbo Hotel introduced this soda machine (and related tchotchkes) as part of a cross-promotion campaign with Mountain Dew. When the campaign ended, the Mountain Dew vending machine was replaced with this unbranded model.

Thanks, @geoffmeador!



We already covered Shenmue earlier, but it’s worth noting that the Japanese release features Coca-Cola product placement instead of “Jet Cola.” Thanks, Gareth!

Here’s the Coke machine from the fan-created Shenmue HD remake project that’s been kicking around since 2014.
