Seth Killian on re-releasing Capcom vs Snk 2 and other classics on Xbox Live and Playstation Network
Capcom's Seth Killian made a very interesting post on the Capcom Unity boards today about the considerations that need to be made as to whether or not to re-release a classic Capcom title, such as Capcom vs SNK 2 being the subject in this post, on Xbox Live and Playstation Network.
"I too would love to turn on my consoles and have my choice to play any of my past favorites, but a few things to keep in mind for CVS2, or really any Capcom fighter not currently available on next-gen systems:
"Just release it on PSN (or XBL, etc.)" is much harder than it sounds. As you can see from MVC2 and SF HD Remix, we aim high in terms of overall standards even for digital-only releases, and getting online right, much less the port itself, can be a very painstaking process. Having been a part of both of these from the inside, the amount of work that goes into the games, even when they are just ports+online (like MVC2) would likely shock you. It takes a lot of time and effort, all of which costs money.
