Awesome, I’m really excited for this one. I dig the retro look, but I have to wonder, will it run in widescreen on my HD TV, or will it run in a 4:3 window?

I think it should be mentioned that this Mega Man 9 won’t be like Bionic Commando ReArmed. The artwork is gonna get updated. As a matter of fact I think it will intentionally look like your playing an NES version of the game. Isn’t this correct Mr. Diamonon?

$9.99 for an 8-bit game, there better damn well be trophies and custom soundtracks.

Sorry to sound harsh, I’m not a graphics whore, but there’s no reason to make a game intentionally ugly.

    + John Diamonon on September 19th, 2008 at 2:28 am said:

    I wouldn\’t call it ugly. 8-bi graphics are beautifully simplistic. Try creating a boss character with 16 sprites.

A guaranteed-without-a-doubt buy. Mega Man is the King of Win.

And yeah, I agree with the other guy… the PS3 crowd needs to experience Dead Rising. Don’t know what, if anything, you’ve got to do with that, but I’m sure you don’t need me to tell you that Dead Rising was one of the best products Capcom has made in years and ought to be ported / have a spin-off or sequel on every platform that can handle the bloodthirsty zombie hordes.

How much does it cost?

Since you’re from Capcom. You should talk to the people in-charge about Monster Hunter 3 for the PS3. The Wii doesn’t have no swagger…Capcom needs to step their game up and come home to the PS3. Where real games for gamers are being made.

I dont have a credit card; I would love to blow random cash on PSN but I can’t. Life with playstation… Delayed… Launched by accident… pulled why not just let it go live? This is frustrating us.
