Well, well. It looks like someone sorted out those nasty licensing issues because Rockman X6 is coming to PlayStation Network in Japan. It's set to launch next week on July 8th. Yay?
Curiously enough, it was only a few weeks ago we learned the game was having trouble hitting the digital storefront. And what do you know, Brett was right: sometimes these legacy titles just creep up on us. We can't say for sure if this means the game gets a pass in North America (or Europe) too, but we'll keep an ear out.

It's funny how this and "Mega Man X6 Unlikely to Arrive on PlayStation Network (For Now)" are on the same page... until we get more news.ReplyDelete
Also, would the trivia questions from MML2 cause copyright trouble? (I hope it comes to PSN; collector or not, I'd rather pay $6 for it so I can play it on my PS3, PSP, and Vita that pay $80 to only play it on my PS3 and PS2 (or, of course, your PS1 if you have one)).
This is great news! We'll finally have all of the original PSX X games in digital format.ReplyDelete
America's copyright trouble is really annoying. No wonder JAPAN is the best!ReplyDelete
Yes this is cool hopefully we will get over in europe and the usa too. Then we can hope for MML1&2 and possibly the ps1 version of X3 as well.ReplyDelete
You think Capcom saw all the fan/rage comments on the other post then decided 'wow we could really sell this thing' and just worked to do so?ReplyDelete
let's hope soDelete
Protodude, why the nasty JPEG artifact image?ReplyDelete
Wow you fixed it quick, I guess you're an efficient machine...a *super fighting machine*, and just like that, I have my new user name.Delete
last week, they said it's hard to port this to psn and nobody really asked for it but now they're going to port it to the same network they couldn't? can't capcom keep a straight lie?ReplyDelete
That was Capcom US. Unless it was just impeccable timing that things worked out, I believe it's alright to assume the two divisions (JP and US) work on legacy titles separatelyDelete
Well the title Mega Man X6 is kinda confusing, don't you mean Rockman X6?Delete
@protodude if that's the case, then there's more issues of communications between them than we thought. but at least i'd rather play megaman X6 over the crappy legacy collection.Delete
I have to agree with Sckarton I would rather play MMX6 then get the legacy collection. But since I already have the X collection I won't be buying this on the psn if it does come to the usa.Delete
I know it won't happen since their policy is to leave the games alone, but I'd love to see a retranslated X6.ReplyDelete
I don't get it, all I see is Rival Schools... Could be talking about X6 though, I can't read Japanese.ReplyDelete
