Capcom’s PC support becoming “increasingly important,” says exec

Saturday, 30th April 2011 16:50 GMT By John Callaham

Capcom is supporting PC gaming more and more, according to recent statements by the publisher’s vice-president, Christian Svensson.

In posts on the Capcom Unity site spotted by Eventhubs.com, Sevensson wrote: “From the moment I walked in nearly six years ago, I viewed PC as extremely important for the company, not just to grow a new audience for our brands, but because of what the PC market teaches a company.”

He added: “As we continue to expand our businesses in Russia, China, Korea and Brazil, the PC becomes increasingly important as it is the primary platform in those territories.”

Svensson pointed out that Capcom has more upcoming PC games ports than ever before, such as Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition, Dead Rising 2 Off The Record, Resident Evil Operation Raccoon City and more.

While not mentioned in the article, Capcom is also currently the sole game publisher for the non-profit PC Gaming Alliance, of which Svensson is a board member.

    Well you’ve got digital distribution to thank for that, retailers were doing such an awful job prior to it.

    The best PC support from original console devs is Capcom no doubt about that.
    Everytime i play their games they have perfect PC controls, settings and etc.

    The only problem are Games. Capcom, make BETTER Games.

    Capcom used to have awful PC versions. But they said with DMC4 they’d fix it up and well, they did. In fact DMC4 runs better than a lot of western PC ports. Since then the PC versions have all been sublime. I wish they’d switch to Steamworks though, GFWL is failbear.

    This is good to hear though I remain skeptical as there were no PC games from Capcom announced for this year and no previous plans to bring SSFIV to the PC. I’ll be getting it now for sure.

    I thought rapidshare is also the primary platform in those territories. turns out it’s not that bad.
