Classics Collections, Mega Man remakes go downloadable for PSP; more Resident Evil and Dino Crisis PlayStation originals headed for online store.
Although Sony updated its download library with several new titles six days ago, some might believe the online service still lacks enough titles to support the imminent October 1 launch of its UMD-less portable, the PSP Go. However, Capcom today announced it will help Sony augment its library selection with a slate of 10 titles confirmed for re-release on the PlayStation Network.
The influx of Capcom titles begins tomorrow with the release of Capcom Classics Collection Remixed a compilation featuring Bionic Commando, 1941: Counter Attack, Magic Sword, Strider, and more than a dozen other titles. Capcom's other arcade archival bundle, Capcom Classics Collection Reloaded will follow at an undetermined date with a lineup, including Street Fighter II, King of Dragons, and Knights of the Round. Five other PSP games will also soon be joining the ranks of the downloadable, including Mega Man iterations Powered Up and Maverick Hunter X, as well as Street Fighter Alpha 3 Max.
Capcom is also planning to pad out its offerings of original PlayStation games downloadable for the PSP or the PlayStation 3 with Dino Crisis, Resident Evil 2, and Resident Evil 3: Nemesis set for Sony's online store. Meanwhile, Capcom promises to bring "one of Japan's most popular animes" to the PSN this summer with the release of the downloadable exclusive Fate/Unlimited Codes.List of Capcom's upcoming PSN uploads:

Are they waiting until October for these releases? I really hope these'll come out at decent prices. If they intend to keep them at $20 to $30 like Unlimited Codes, they can keep them. Darkstalkers and the Megaman games are $15 games now new. They better not charge $20 to $30 for older games. I nearly passed out when I saw Fate/Unlimited Codes' price. I hope they'll lower the price of Classics Reloaded and Remixed too but I doubt it. Also, does Darkstalkers have that obnoxious Memory Card Reading problem that I found out Alpha 3 MAX has? I could've used that knowledge before hand because I thought I could just pick it up and play it like the several other games I bought yesterday and I found out that the game has a rather annoying bug that won't read your stick until its at least below 2 gig of memory. I really hope they fix that before they release it on PSN.
Anyone else having touble managing space on their ps3? I'd love to have psn dl games on my external hd.
It'd be cool to even see RE Zero show up on one of the current systems, because I'm not considering a Wii as much as a Gamecube. Would be easier if it showed up on PSP, but I'm definitely looking forward to some of these releases. RE Zero, in my opinion is the best, and RE 2 is first rate in game design right along with it. I don't know about the latest one, seems overboard.
This might be off topic - but what I want from Capcom is Breath of Fire 6, 7 and beyond. They make a lot of great games - so what's the problem here with the Breath of Fire series? It's not like they have to compete with Final Fantasy anymore, Square probably has FF on a twenty year schedule anyway...
Resident Evil 2 baby...oh man my first RE game ever...this is truely nostalgic. Might pick up Dino and SF Alpha 3 too.
Great Idea , Love Capcom really looking forward to these releases especially Dino Crisis and Resident Evil's.
i really like capcom :D but ive always wanted to play Dino Crisis i have a demo of it and i liked it so maybe ill get it when the time comes
YES! I've been wondering if they were going to put up the other classic resident evils. I'm really glad they are. Plus Dino Crsis looks really good too. = ]
Damn! Some kick-ass reasons to own a PSP and 4GB-8GB Memory stick! Resident Evil 2&3, Dino Crisis and Power Stone Collection are now on my priority list.
isnt fate a ecchi/fanservice anime?never seen it but that was the impression i got from the pics and clips i seen
Street Fighter 3 Max is the best fighting game to grace the PSP, rivalled only by Tekken DR A lot of the games rock, but were missing the Million Dollar Baby: Monster Hunter Unite. I could slap them across the ocean since UK gets the DL and the bundle.
@LinusBlue: Dino Crisis was a Survival Horror title simmiler to the first three Resident Evil Games except instead of hordes of slow undead trying to kill you there was fast Raptors and of course the good old T-Rex, the game was super fun, im so going to be buying it when it's out, i just hope Dino Crisis 2 gets the same treatment as that one was even more fun, i dunno if i'll be buying the others but this is great news for all.
gimme resi 2 and dino crisis! (i got resi 3 on pc so thats not going any where). i wonder what next will be released ? weve had ff 7 and mgs 1 then these what else would you like to see being released?
@KingOfOldSkool - true the PS3 has a lot going for it this holiday. Microsoft is rumored to be hitting hard with a price plan that attempts to overshadow that, though. I don't think Microsoft's pricing is going to be able to compete with all that Sony has going for it this holiday, but it might be the PSP that gets to boost and not as much the PS3. Only time will tell... _
i played resident evil 2 great game never played 3 defintly get it especially since mvc2 coming out late. i played all even resident evils never odds LOL. so i have to catch up on my odds.
Resident Evil 2 and 3 I have never played so hopefully I will be able to play them soon and Street Fighter Aplha 3 was a fun game.
A strong collection of games. Most of these I already own but its a nice deal for all the new gamers that never got to play some of these classics. Why would you complain about this? If you don't think its a good deal then don't buy anything. Its actually totally different than all of these bullsht dlc scams that have been going on. Instead of cutting games short to sell the rest to you later, this is simply just releasing classics for those that never got to play them.
seems like capcom moved their whole psp collection over if i had a ps3 i would def buy street fighter alpha 3 if it came with online support.
how many times is capcom gonna recycle and make money off of the same games? make some new games cappy!!
