They did it. They actually did it. After championing the cause for nearly half a decade, Brett Elston and team Capcom USA have made the impossible happen: Mega Man Legends is headed to PlayStation Network in North America.
Capcom has confirmed the original PlayStation classic will launch on the PlayStation Store next Tuesday, September 29th. The game will run for $9.99 - a little pricier than your typical PSOne Classic but far cheaper than the likes of eBay. It will be playable on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita ONLY. Due to "a variety of constraints" it will not play on PSP. Be advised!
This is a huge win for not only the Mega Man community but curious gamers looking to see what all the Legends fuss is about. Capcom USA has my heartfelt thanks for making it happen!
Now, I'm genuinely curious how they got around those gnarly legal hurdles. I wonder if Sony actually eased their master disc image policy and allowed Capcom to go in and remove infringing content. That *might* explain the additional six dollar charge.We'll find out next week!
Bring on 2!
