Capcom Classics Flood PSN Today
If you've been roving around the Store or PlayStation Home this year, you know Capcom is an avid supporter of the Network. But you haven't seen anything yet: starting today, more than a few Capcom classics are hitting the Store for play on both the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Portable.
As announced over at the PlayStation Blog, the first batch of old-school gems will go up on the Store today. It includes the Capcom Classics Collection: Remixed, which features recognizable arcade titles like Final Fight, Bionic Commando, Street Fighter, and Magic Sword. In fact, there are 20 classic games included in the Collection, so if that's not worthy of your time, you ain't no true gamer. Visit the Capcom Unity website to take a gander at all 20 titles. The other games that you'll be able to download today are:
- Mega Man Powered Up (UMD Legacy)
- Dino Crisis (PlayStation Legacy)
- Power Stone Collection (UMD Legacy)
- Mega Man Maverick Hunter X (UMD Legacy)
- Resident Evil 2 (PlayStation Legacy)
- Darkstalkers (UMD Legacy)
- Street Fighter Alpha 3 Max (UMD Legacy)
- Resident Evil 3: Nemesis (PlayStation Legacy)
- Capcom Classics Collection Reloaded (UMD Legacy)
At some point later this summer, you can expect Fate/Unlimited Codes to join the fray, which will release exclusively on the PSN and be "ready for the new PSP Go." One might think that with all this new technology, we'd be leaving the past behind at a record rate, but the Store and Live Marketplace have allowed us to relive the golden age of gaming on a continual basis. So awesome.
