Capcom's Software Development for Sony to Focus on PS3

Capcom President Haruhiro Tsujimoto said in a recent interview with Jiji Press (Japan) that the company will place more emphasis from next year on the development of software for Sony PlayStation 3, rather than the more popular PlayStation 2.

Tsujimoto also said Capcom plans to follow the industry trend of multiplatform development and to support both Sony PS3 and Microsoft Xbox 360, in order to maximize profits. (Industry, PS2, PS3)

This should at least debunk the MS buying Capcom rumors.... for now -.-

ha those rumours werent worth the paper (well monitor) they were wrote on..
capcom will never sell out to a company and become exclusive, the only reason companies do this is to recieve a nice load of cash. Capcom dont need M$'s money they have enough of their own, infact if anyone could do with M$ money at the minute its M$ themselves.

Good for Capcom.
Now let's hope that they do not fall victim to the typical delays for the PS3 versions while the other versions come out on time. I just can't wait for the devs to fully graps the PS3 hardware. I think at that time we will see them ship game on time. It is good to see them offering up the love for Sony. *thumbs up*

Then that means sequels to dead rising and lost planet could go to the PS3 as well. I wonder what capcom has planned.... :D

make a good game, and even if its exclusive to a slower console, it will sell loads. that is the result when you acctually have a good game.

I wouldnt mind if capcom go multi, just as long as they make the PS3 as the lead platform, then everybody wins and not get shoddy ports like one company we know...EA

well it looks like MH3 is multiplatform now
and all the once exclusive ps2 games. like onimusha. wow, but that also means that lost planet 2 is on the PS3 which will be awesome i cant wait. they just need to make the PS3 lead plaform so they get bette results. just like what they did with DMC4. looks and plays better on the PS3. cant wait. make some damn announcements already
DemiseofPandas  +   2523d ago
Thats assuming MH3 even leaves Japan. I mean we never got 2, and the PC MMO frontier is nowhere in sight. They definately wont go multiplatform for the Japanese 360s lol

Simple: No going 2 happen pal.

I'm pretty sure Sony cracked a deal with Capcom to keep Monster Hunter 3 for PS3 since it really only sells in Japan.

dead rising 2 and lost planet on PS3.
