“The developers have been releasing products, but there is a bigger potential,” Hayashi said. “There is greater potential, and we see that possibility the most in the PlayStation 3. It’s going to be up to us developers and Sony to make sure that that does happen.”
“For any developer that’s been working on all of the platforms that are available today, I think they would agree that the PlayStation 3 is the most powerful system out there,” he added, also touting Sony’s top-notch developer support.
When the Wii’s turn came around, however, things were a little less cut-and-dry.
“Internally at the company, we have a lot of knowledge, and I think we’ve
mastered most of the components to make a very compelling and entertaining product using the console,” Hasegawa explained.
“We will continue to work in that path. We have a lot of Wii console fans within the company, so hopefully there’s something that we can work on.”

The first in what is likely to be a long series, Capcom has earned the keys to its very own digital PSN storefront. Why? Because, as Capcom product manager John Diamonon said, the publisher is “supporting Playstation Network like no other company.”
“Out of all of the third-party companies making use of the digital space, [Sony] recognizes Capcom is one of the best partners for content,” he told Edge.
The Capcom-branded piece of digital real estate is set to launch in November and will be the first of its kind.
Regarding an Xbox 360 equivalent, however, Capcom brass wasn’t quite as gung-ho.
“As far as Microsoft goes–how can I say this diplomatically–there are things I think they’d like to do to promote content in multiple ways, and I think they’ll get there eventually… but they’re not there yet,” said Capcom business chap, Christian Svensson.
Now if Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 christens the PS Store’s new section, our money will be forfeit. Take us, Capcom.
