UPDATE 2: Confirmed via CapKobun, X8 is a PS2 Classic on PlayStation 3. Nevertheless your input is still being gathered on the prospects of a PS4 version.
UPDATE: While the game is currently slated to hit PSN today, it has come to my attention Sony did not specify which console - PlayStation 3 or PlayStation 4. The game does not have a hub on PSN yet; merely referenced here in a holiday lottery as an eligible prize. We'll keep an ear to the ground.
Original post: Mega Man X8 is set to arrive as a PS2 Classic on PlayStation 4 today in Japan.
No word yet on availability outside of Japan... stay tuned!

AW FUCK YEAH !! X8 is a hardcore game, so good to have it brought back. But all this PS4 talk...does it confirm I won't be able to buy this PS2 classic and play it on my PS3?!ReplyDelete
Awesome! X8 is my third-favorite X game, I'm really glad to hear it'll finally be re-released and available to more people. It's a damn shame it tends to be so rare nowadays.ReplyDelete
That is awesome. Now I just need a ps4.ReplyDelete
why would anyone at this point put anything on the ps3?ReplyDelete
because ps4 games are on ps3 and japanese people don't own a ps4.Delete
The PS3 has a huge install base of active users still, by numbers alone,a PS3 X8 can outsell a PS4 version.Delete
Man put it on Steam, no one (legitimately) has resources to waste rebuying games every 1 or two console generations. At least on PC I know I will be able to have the game despite upgrading my rig.ReplyDelete
Makes sense after blowing a few k on a PCDelete
Cool, but... updated PC release when? X8 already had a damn good PC port for its time. Why we never heard anything about Capcom updating and re-releasing that digitally is a mystery to me.ReplyDelete
Agree. While it is good that X8 is available online for PS3, I'd love to see X8 in Steam! (And Command Mission! (The Game Cube version!) )ReplyDelete
It would't be either PS2 or GC, it would be a unique port specifically designed for the PC. who knows it may take features from the best of both worlds since the random battles were way too frequent on the GC.Delete
Still would rather have an X collection though, PC needs a current version of them.
