Rumor: Capcom looking to bring arcade retro games on PSN (and other digital platforms)

It's no secret that Capcom as a company has been in dire straights financially. Through a combination of DLC exploitation, franchise saturation, and neglecting their various fan bases, the company has taken an enormous hit in their bank accounts. So much so that the company is near bankrupt.

Only thing wrong with this is that I'd like to see updated graphics similar to Street Fighter HD and Capcom seems to have moved past such level of competence.

lodossrage3912d ago

Exactly man,

You dang well know they won't do something like that. Especially with the excuse of "not having resources".

But that isn't stopping them from making a new fighting game lol

DarkBlood3912d ago

well id take aliens versus predator, hopefully they reasonable price it well.

DualWielding3912d ago

The one I'll really like to see released is Rival Schools

first1NFANTRY3912d ago

wow you said it. A remastered one at that.

lodossrage3912d ago

A remastered Rival Schools would be nice.

But what THAT franchise really deserves is a sequel to Project Justice

silkylove3912d ago (Edited 3912d ago )

I'll take Demon's Crest for the virtual console, please. Or PSN. Don't care as long as I get to play it.

Capcom's Old Game Engine Seemingly To Blame For Certain Releases Skipping Xbox

“Capcom has no pipeline for porting older MT Framework titles to Xbox's modern ERA system, which makes it more expensive to deliver the same titles than it would porting them to PlayStation 4, Switch, or PC.”

did MS just stop supporting MT framework all together? I get that its not supported for Series (same with PS5) but the PS4 and XBO supported it. So, its just odd that there is a PS4 version (which would subsequently run on PS5 via BC) but not an XBO to do the same.

Unless there was some update applied to both XBO/Series that no longer make it compatible and only existing titles are it. I'm getting it for Switch anyways so I'm good. I have the other collections on there and I like to keep things together.

Nah, that's PR talking even with an outdated engine they can still port games from the early 2000's to their so called "max power" hardware.
This is just plain and simple ever since their game pass, is not profitable for Japanese companies to port their games for a montly subscription. They still are rooted into buy and sell their products, in contrast Microsoft is trying to FORCE us to consume gaming as a service and not a product.
The day that gaming industry becomes a service that's when I would most likely leave it and let it rot since that is a walking dead insutry and no longer consumer friendly like. Fortunatly we can still vote with our wallets.

How is MS trying to force you to do anything? You can buy your games. You can subscribe to them. They give you an option to play their games just about any way you choose. Why is that a bad thing?

DefaultComment23d ago

Game pass is imposed at this point, they insist and that's their big bet for them, hence why they were buying studios to make games for their gamepass library,.Baiscally making gaming a service like Netflix or Disney+. that's anticonsumer and hopefully we still got options.

Resident Evil Zero and Code Veronica Remakes are reportedly in the works, not Resident Evil 1

Industry insider Dusk Golem reveals that there is no Resident Evil 1 Remake in the works. Instead, Capcom are reportedly in active development of Resident Evil Zero and Code Veronica.

-Foxtrot49d ago

RE Zero would be better to do first over RE1 because they can tie the story into RE1 more.

The original RE Remake was weird because Rebecca never mentioned anything about what happened in Zero and it felt so disjointed because Zero was developed during the Remake and they clearly didn't share any notes with one another.

Cacabunga48d ago

Wise decision. 2 of my favorites!

repsahj47d ago

RE Zero is one of my favorite game on gamecube!

Knightofelemia49d ago
