Capcom Making A Push For PC Gaming

A new blog post by Capcom's senior VP Christian Svensson makes it clear that the company wants more of a presence on PC. "The push for PC gaming within Capcom over the years has been lead by a select few people. I'm one, putting my money where my mouth is with my forecasts," he wrote.

It sounds like their offices in the States and Europe are both pushing the Japanese HQ to give the go-ahead to these PC versions. "Both the US and our European teams continue to request PC SKUs for new titles. We've got more titles coming with PC versions than ever before (e.g. Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, Dead Rising 2: Off the Record, Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition, etc.). At green light meetings, our Japanese COO and the head of the consumer and online software business increasingly request a PC version if one is not being proposed at the outset of a project."

It seems to be a change of pace from last year, when the company decided not to bring Super Street Fighter IV to PC thanks to piracy concerns. Their change of heart seems to be evident with the announcement that SSFIV: Arcade Edition will be arriving on the platform eventually.
