    LOL. I\’m usually long winded. Thought I try the direct approach for a change.

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?

    4:3 oldschoolness baby.

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?

    Think of it as a new 8-bit NES game available on the PSN.

$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's Avatar

    John Diamonon said:

    September 19th, 2:28 am

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

Any word on trophy support?

Jenovah said:

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.

OT, but do you have any update on Bionic Commando trophies?

    John Diamonon's Avatar

    John Diamonon said:

    September 19th, 2:31 am

    Just talked to Ben Judd about that. The team is hard at work with the next gen game and are trying to release trophy support probably around the same time.

September 18th, 5:19 pm

OMG! Shut up about trophies I’m sick of hearing oh a new game it better have trophies it was implemented but games are not about trophies if you want to buy it then buy it if the game as no trophies then that’s the way it is stop basing your purchases on things that don’t matter the day will come when you get trophies in almost every game then you will complain about something else ignorant

Ghostm said:

September 18th, 5:19 pm

Is this a remake like Bionic Commando Rearm?
Does it support Trophies?
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 know there\’s a lot of upset fans that MH3 is on the Wii. I\’ll just say that we hear the complaints. We\’ll have to wait and see what plans there are for a US MH.

h3ro said:

Will the game have Widescreen support? Trophies?

Love the old-school vibe of this game, but it’ll take some new-school trophy support to get my $9.99.

Day 1 purchase for me. Some questions:
· “Coming soon” means “September 25th”?
· Has PSP remote play?
· Has YouTube support?
· Has Trophies support?

Sadly I smell all the answers will be “Nope”.

All this content is great; But it would be really great if Sony could come thru on some promises….I mean I’ve owned two PS1’s; a PS2; I still own PSP and PS3….I bought my psp-1001 for a promised launch title of GT4 Mobile…Can you say Vapor Ware? Then I bought my ps3….Home was announced March 07 i think, its been delayed how many times now? PSN Cards…..how long you guys been talking about them? 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. Could you guys possibly start making some realistic launch schedules; or just stop telling us about things until they are actually ready?
