Sony pleases keep bringing us arcade games such as Megaman 9. I hope you will also put more classic RPG games out there while we wait for the major ones to come out. It would also be nice if some of these PSone titles had a HD overall done to their visuals because after playing a few i was almost blinded by huge chunks of pixels. LOL. I think there were many game that were done with similar graphics like Megaman that would look great on the HD tv.

Bring back Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver from Crystal Dynamics.

Off topic, but IF there is a MMX9 could you tell them to scrap the MMX7 and MMX8 design and keep it old school like MM9 is doing.


254

+ DLM16A2 on September 22nd, 2008 at 8:42 am said:

by oldschool i mean MMX – MMX6. Also is there any chance of getting Breath of Fire added to the PSN. Maybe a 1 – 4 pack. I love the series and looking foward to a BOF5 (Dragon Quarter doesnt count) :D

Getting this day one. After Megaman (classic) MegamanX, the rest just arent TRUE Megaman. Getting wipeoutHD also. Trophies don’t make a game worth getting, the game makes the trophies worth getting, don’t forget that.

What are the chances of getting “U.N. SQUADRON” on the psn or an “HD remix” of sorts? That game has “WIN” written all over it retro or not.

Any Idea of the Euro release Date?

The Europe release for BC:rearmed wasnt announced, it just magically was added to the store a day after the US release with no warning and I spent my PSN credit on something else a few days before thinking I would have to wait months for a date like 1942 :/

Hope Capcom can be more clear with the date this time

Ill make a promise, if u take the time to patch dmc4 with trophy support, ill will use my ten dollars to buy MM9, cuz at the moment id rather spend $20 on quality(Wipeout HD)

When I was little, Mega Man was my world. I had Mega Man 3 and I can’t tell you the countless times I beat that game. I didnt even need to use the Boss Pattern, I just kicked that much ass. When I heard that Mega Man 9 was coming to PSN, I think I peed myself a little. Ok…that would be gross, but I know I GEEKed-out (pun intended). @ 10$, and the fact that I actually HAVE money in my bank account, I’m buying this the second I get home from work.

Few questions though, since this is modeled after MM2/3, will it have a “normal” and “hard” mode?

Secondly, will this game work over Remote Play?

Next, Will trophies be retroactive (if you do release a patch)? It would be annoying if I had to get them all again as I did with Uncharted (pain in the ass…)

And lastly, (sorry!) is it like classic MMan where if you turn the game off, TS and you have to start all over again from the beginning; no saves? Not that it matters, but hey, if you go classic, I almost think there shouldn’t be saves unless its a game like Zelda.

Once again I just want to thank you and everyone at Capcom for this. Whoever was at a meeting and just said “Why not just go back to 8-bit instead of redoing all of the graphics?” should be given a metal/raise in pay…or a cookie… because a little reward for an idea can go a long way. :)

    This game will have difficulty modes. Sorry, no remote play. No plans at this time for trophies.

    And we initially thought the 8-bit route was madness. Boy, were we wrong.

please email the team for a PSP release, the game would look better on it since the PSP screen resolution is much much closer to NES than HDTV and you can play it anywhere you go while still get a option to play on big screen with TV out.

Hey John, if the team is interested in doing *ANY* more HD-versions of classics, I am a real DJ, and I correspond with several producers who could make some great “remixed music” (one of them is Mali Boi, if you’ve heard that Jackie Chain song “Rollin’”, he produced it; it’s on youtube, if you wanna hear how he can sample & remake).

John…you didn’t reply to my previous thread…I am a little bit sad…it’s ok you did answer it to other people. I truly admire your willingness to talk to the gamers! Anyways, I was going to say, I couldn’t wait for the PSN version so I caved in for the Wii version. (I hope it’s ok to say that here…) This game is amazing and I am about half way through the game right now, all those DLCs…Protoman seems to be the best. And omg you can play as Roll, that’s really cool, but I don’t have 200 screws yet… Anyways, I was going to say, I noticed the Wii version has something like 50 achievements…(50…that’s right) and really really hope you guys patch it up for the trophy support for the PSN version. Tell you what, please pass the word on that if you guys do patch it up, I will buy the game AGAIN on PSN! Just to get the trophies. This game is really awesome anyways, Rockman was the first videogame I played in my life. Anyways, thank you again for such a community guy, and would you please pass on if Capcom can make a HD2D, brand new game of Rockman X with Coop? (X and Zero working together) I left a message on Capcom Unity for Sven but seemed to be ignored…Thanks again!

MM is the definitive capcom franchise, drop zombies, street fighters etc and start churning MM games all over the place. Rename capcom to Megaman Haven or something. And please stop messing around with the story, I mean until Megaman X Zero it was ok, but how on earth did we end up at Legends through that new DS c**p? A Legends 3 would also be appreciated. And many collections. OK, enough ranting….

Day 1 purchase, although mind you I refused to buy games like Fallout 3 that didn’t support trophies. But Megaman is Megaman. Just show some of the posts here, I ‘d pay for a trophies patch…

Thanx for all the answers!

PS: With the BCR patch, alright, you better be joking, or BC next gen is like 90% ready.

Hey John, glad you replied. Burnout is really amazing, all their DLCs are FREE, so far they have had 3 updates, with the most recent one adding a brand new motobikes side with its own races, challenges and events, basically an additional game on top of the existing game for FREE! Later this year they are adding a new island to the game for free as well… to be honest… I really like their business model, wonder how they make that work…? Anyways, Rockman 9 is really good, I even got the OST cuz the music is just that great! Hope oversea they will see the importance of trophies.

John – You say that you couldn’t add trophies to the PS3 version of MM9 because of resource issues, but I really hope you guys will reconsider later, especially after this sells like friggin wildfire and you guys make boatloads of cash off of it.

This “no trophy” issue is really starting to perpetuate a cycle. No trophies = less sales on cross platform games = less devs bother to do trophies because of less sales = no trophies.

I had planned on buying this game on AT LEAST 2 systems, the PS3 and the Wii, and perhaps the 360 later just because. Now i’ll most likely only buy it on the Wii, because it’s more or less pointless to buy the PS3 version for no perks over the Wii version. I *might* still buy the 360 version for the achievements, but that was a maybe at best before (see my previous aversion to the 360′s D-pad). Capcom has effectively halved the money they could have made off of me by one bad business decision.

Granted, I’m probably in the minority and I doubt many people will buy this game multiple times over, but frankly I want to support you guys for being so damned awesome. That’s why I’m torn. I love Megaman. My first videogame memory was Megaman 2. I would gladly pay you guys 3 times over for this wonderful game, but a man has to have principles at the same time. But what is worse? Keeping the cycle going by not buying the PS3 version, or continuing to support you guys when the brass can’t even cough up enough dough and manpower to add in something as simple as trophy support (and in a timely manner *cough BC:Rearmed cough*)?

But don’t think I’m blaming, John. I’m not, really. Whoever the nameless, faceless brass is that makes those decisions..HE gets my ire.
