Yeah, and the funny thing is that Coca-Cola threatened to sue Capcom over this and forced them to edit it out in later editions of the game because they didn’t want their brand associated with a horror game, even though it was basically free advertising.

Isn't that down to copyright precedent though? Not a lawyer but I have heard that if companies don't protect their brand, then precedent is set for anyone to use it. Thus even if they were to like Resident Evil 2, if they were to not threaten to sue (if CAPCOM put without permission), then the door is opened for anyone to use the brand without permission.

They must have had a change of heart not long after this as it's a legitimate fully licensed consumable in Parasite Eve 2, itself a PS1 horror game.

TIL there’s a website dedicated toward cataloging the appearance of soda machines in video games. Huh.
