Capcom Diplomatically Disses XBox Live

Capcom Diplomatically Disses XBox Live 50°
332w ago - Microsoft's Xbox Live boasts an enormous user base, however, many of its users have been nothing short of vocal in criticizing the monthly subscription fee required to fully "jump in."

Supporters of the service often cited the flexible in-game chat capability as its primary edge over the PlayStation Network, but recent updates on the part of Sony have bridged that gap.

The addition of online capabilities to consoles allowed gamers to remotely connect to each other, but more importantly, from a publishers perspective, it created a viable means for digital distribution of content. On that note, both the PS3 and 360 next-gen consoles have infrastructures capable of delivering digital content to consumers, but which format do publishers prefer?

In a recent interview, Capcom's digital content product manager, John Diamonon, discussed the current digital distribution options available to publishers. Diamonon complimented the PSN service, and had the following to say about XBL:

"As far as Microsoft goes-how can I say this diplomatically-there are things I think they'd like to do to promote content in multiple ways, and I think they'll get there eventually... but they're not there yet."

It should also be noted that Sony recently granted Capcom...

333w ago - Capcom product manager John Diamonon revealed during a recent interview with Edge Online that a Capcom-themed PSN store will open this November. The store's layout will essentially be the same as Sony's, but with Capcom-specific assets and titles.

To quote: "Out of all of the third-party companies making use of the digital space, [Sony] recognizes Capcom is one of the best partners for content," said John Diamonon, product manager on all Capcom digital titles.

The game is described as a "hybrid RPG-fighting game" coming out on the Nintendo DS in Q1 2009 with a "likely" PSP port later in the new year. SEGA is apparently heading the game's development alongside Dimps.

Capcom however will take on the role of supervisor. Anonymous did not have any knowledge as to who would make up the character roster, but did mention that Rockman and Sonic's presence were a given.

To quote: Earlier today, I received word from an anonymous source that both Capcom and SEGA are set to unveil a cross over title during the Tokyo Game Show festivities dubbed, "SEGA vs. Capcom: Great Clash Generation."

Capcom Doing Overtime to Make Resident Evil 5 Look Hot

Capcom Doing Overtime to Make Resident Evil 5 Look Hot 50°
335w ago - In an effort to achieve greater realism, Resident Evil 5 producer Jun Takeuchi says his team met with clothing manufacturers to ensure authentic in-game apparel.

To quote: "The footwear and gloves the main character wears are all based on real items," said Takeuchi, in an undated interview on Capcom's Japanese site.

"We contacted the makers of those items to find out all the little details that go into making them, that way players don't have a sense of the game being completely divorced from reality."

As Takeuchi puts it, players will be able to see individual clothing fibers so that characters will breath in a more life-like fashion, presumably so the game will freak you out even more when a Zombie dog jumps through a window.

"Resident Evil 5 will occupy a unique place in the gaming world," added the veteran producer. "We are going to shock everybody."

Here's hoping it does when the game arrives on March 13, 2009 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
