Capcom Releasing A Bunch Of PS1/PSP Games On Playstation Store

Joystiq reports that Capcom plans on releasing a whopping 20 to 40 PS1/PSP titles this year on Playstation Network, a move to increase the company's presence on the service.

The best part? Capcom-Unity members will have a say in what titles they'd like to see released:

"We spoke with Capcom's Chris Kramer, who let us know that the company would be listening to what the community wants and figuring out internally what titles to release -- but don't expect any of them to involve licensing shenanigans along the lines of Marvel vs. Capcom. "We'll definitely be looking at a lot of titles that have things like Street Fighter and Resident Evil in the title," Kramer said. "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. "

Mega Man fans in particular have a lot to look forward to; besides the possibility of downloadable versions of Maverick Hunter X and Powered Up, we also have hopes of seeing the following:

Mega Man 8
Mega Man Battle & Chase (Most likely a UK only release)
Mega Man X4
Mega Man X5
Mega Man X6
Mega Man Legends
Mega Man Legends 2
The Misadventures of Tron Bonne

So, which one would you prefer first?


  1. Battle and Chase could come to the US. They've imported Japanese games to the VC, and this game's already been translated! I don't think that would be a "licensing shenanigan" because they own Rockman. :P

  2. it would be nice if the downloadable versions of MHX and MMPU would work on the ps3, and not just the psp. it'd make sense, too. i'd be willing to bet there are more ps3 owners than there are psp owners. i've never had the chance to play the tronne bonne game, but i've been curious as to what it's about.

  3. ah havent posted for quite a while. i would definately like to see the legends series on the psn and a sequel would be a definate win win situation. so i'd have to say legends 1 first as i have legends 2 but thats just me. any of the x's would be next on the list down, so long as all these games are available to play on the ps3 itself as dont have psp, but may invest in the upcoming one...


  4. Bowsersenemy, I'm almost 100% sure the PSP numbers blow the PS3 numbers out of the water. PSP sales have been pretty good and have been going on much longer than the PS3, while the PS3's sales have been dismal.

  5. Everything Legends. This isn't because it's my favorite series, it's because I haven't played anything Legends...XD

  6. What about Megaman X3 aswell? as you know, that was released on PS1 aswell as SNES

  7. Mega Man Legends...

    For god sake's, MML needs to have some more publicity so a MML3 can happen, and an appearance on the PSN would do just that. Please. Make a good choice people; and make it happen, Capcom!

  8. Based stricly on availability, I would say Tron Bonne, Legends 2, Legends 1 would top the list.

  9. Mega Man or Rock man is very classic games, I playing this game more than 10 version in 1 years later by PSP Download
