Capcom Not Done Bringing PS1 Classics To The PSN
Just think of all the PS1 Capcom titles you'd like to see arrive on the PlayStation Network for download...there are plenty, right?
Thus far, Capcom has been one of the best PSN supporters out there, releasing several PS1 classics in digital format, including selections in the famed Resident Evil, Street Fighter and Dino Crisis franchises. And according to Corporate Officer and Vice President of Strategic Planning & Business Development at Capcom, Chris Svensson, the publisher ian't done yet. He replied to a thread in the Capcom-Unity forums, which asked if more PS1 classics will be headed our way:
"Still working on a few more. I'll need to be vague on title names for now until we get them fully locked and loaded."
So, whaddya want? The most popular requests seem to revolve around the role-playing Breath of Fire classics, although there's strong lobbying for the Mega Man Legends series as well as Strider 2, Rival Schools, and of course, more from the RE and SF franchises. Perhaps if you make your voices heard over there, Capcom will be more likely to pursue the re-publication of those old-school gems in a new-school format. The PSN has really become the home for classics from yesteryear, hasn't it? The more they add, the more we can sample that PS1 flavor; many of those classics age like a fine wine.
