There use to be a time when that list would be content console exclusive. PS3 would have games that catered to their user base, xbox 360 and so forth and so on. That, however, was long ago.

It's sad.

3rd party devs need to stop the multiplatform mentality and make games content sensitive per each console. Xbox 360's user base and fans are not the same as the ps3's and vice versa.

Resident Evil might not be a hit on the xbox 360, it's never been on the console before. know what I mean? I think exclusives are important, but more than that content specific games from these devlopers at that.

PS3 should have Capcom games that make sense to their user base.
Xbox 360 should have the same.

This would cut down on poor Capcom ports to boot.

Kid your wrong. Xbox 360 deserves all those titles plus FFVII THE REMAKE EXCLUSIVE TO 360 AND FFXIIIVS TIME EXCLUSIVE TO THE 360, AND MGS4 IS COMING TO 360 LESS THAN A YEAR PLUS BY THE TIME THE PS3 GET NEAR THE 360 IT WOULD BE TOO LATE BECAUSE THE NEXT XBOX XENOX WILL BE OUT.

PS:DEad RISING2 WILL BE EXCLUSIVE TO THE 360.

and what makes you right and silogon wrong
u gotta grow up its just a console enjoy it while us till young
who are we to back up a console we just play them
if someone should be a fanboy and trash the other consoles out of the competition should be the develepors they own it so therefore they should back it up and eliminate their competition with sales and software equally

Dead Rising 2 (PS3, X360)
Bionic Commando (insert subtitle) (Wii)

That's what I see for those 2 projects.

Rock Bottom3756d ago

I think one of the projects is an Onimosha game.

AznSniper3756d ago

Thanks for bringing that up. I totally forgot about that one. Scratch the Bionic Commando for Wii and put in Onimusha 5 (PS3, X360).

barom3755d ago

Excluding the two unknown projects. I would say this is argueably Capcom's weakest lineup so far. Dark Void looks weak, Bionic Commando looks weak (Rearmed looks pretty good though). Street Fighter IV is weak. I know I'mma get a bunch of disagrees for that one but cmon the characters looks weird and the arcade version has SIX stages. THATS IT! Street Fighter 2 HD Remix looks kinda cool but I hear there are very weird stuff going on with the sprites.

Resident Evil 5 looks good but cmon, advance with the times, let me move around and aim at the same time. The rest aren't that special. With the one exception of Spyborgs and thats only because I heard it was developed by former Naughty Dog or Insomniac developers or some other big studio but still I heard bad things about it on 1up yours..

Dead Rising was a fantastic game so I hope your right.

nirwanda3755d ago

I'm looking forward to Dark Void and maybe Resident Evil 5. I've never been a fan of the Resident Evil games, but Resident Evil 5 definantly looks pretty cool. I'm liking Dark Void a lot right now because of the mix of Flight and On-Foot Combat, the screenshots of the game look very nice and it's just something a lot different from anything else that's been released so far in the 7th gen. of gaming.

I'm pretty sure that Dead Rising 2 will be coming to the Playstation 3 as well. Dead Rising looks like the most dumbest and pointless games I've ever seen, but many that have played it say that it's pretty fun or whatever.... even if Dead Rising 2 came to the PS3 I doubt that I would buy it though.

baum3756d ago (Edited 3756d ago )

And underwhelm, too. Dead Rising 2 will be Xbox 360 exclusive, despite the irony of Capcom saying that the future is multiplatform, but hey, at least PS3 owners can sleep because they'll be getting a port from the Wii version of Monster Hunter and a sh1tty port of the first Dead Rising, as it was cheaper for Microsoft to buy timed exclusivity as with every other japanese game.

I only have hope for the Street Fighter and Resident Evil franchises, but even then, Capcom's new IPs are not that impressive. Lost Planet underwhelmed, Dead Rising was cool but not a system seller and doesn't have much replay value, the DMC franchise needs a complete makeover a la RE4, Megaman has long been dead to me. Capcom used to make good new IP on the prior generations, and Dark Void looks like their worst attempt to make something new. Old games like Gears of War and even Lost Planet look much better than it on all fronts anyway.

Dark General3756d ago

Just maybe Capcom can win me over on Street Fighter 4 again. Maybe show Akuma and action and fix Chun-Li's hands along with Ken and Ryu's faces.
