Capcom Amps Up PSN Support
Capcom has been an excellent supporter of the PlayStation Network for quite some time, but you ain't seen nothin' yet.
As Joystiq reports, Capcom plans to inundate the PSN with "between 20 and 40" PS1 classics and PSP titles, and gamers will get to vote on the games that Capcom transforms into downloadable content. As most all of you know, Capcom almost always listens to its fans so it's no surprise that consumers will have a say in these plans. Said Capcom's Chris Kramer:
"We'll definitely be looking at a lot of titles that have things like Street Fighter and Resident Evil in the title. We're thinking about putting together a long list of the titles we're looking at, and then releasing it on Capcom Unity and having people vote on them. Ultimately we're looking at bringing between 20 and 40 titles to the PSN over the next several months."
That's a lot of games to drop in just a few months time! But the more stuff we get on the PSN, the happier we are; there have been more than a few wonderful downloadable experiences in the past few years. There's still talk about physical media eventually dying out in the wake of increasing digital media, but those of us who have invested a lot of time and money in developing a nice collection don't think too highly of the idea. Even so, we'd never refuse more PS1 classics and handheld titles for the PSN!
