Capcom Joins PC Gaming Alliance

February 5, 2009 -

Not best known for their computer games, Resident Evil publisher Capcom is a somewhat surprising addition to the PC Gaming Alliance.

The news comes via a PCGA press release which mentions that The Guildhall at Southern Methodist University (SMU) has come on board as well.

Capcom exec Christian Svensson commented on the decision to join the nonprofit corporation which is dedicated to fostering computer gaming:

Capcom believes strongly in the value and strength of the PC gaming market as a global platform for our entertainment brands. Our participation in the PCGA’s activities over the past year has greatly improved our understanding of the market, provided us great business opportunities and allowed us to participate in improving the field of PC gaming. We’re pleased to have a representative on the board in order to directly help shape the future of the PC gaming environment.

PCGA president Randy Stude added:

Since the PCGA was formed, the organization and its member companies have spread the word that PC gaming is a thriving $54 billion a year industry. With the recent addition of Sony DADC and Howie’s Game Shack to our membership roll, we are already seeing proof that our new structure will provide the right mix of benefits for a greater number of industry players, while also better serving our current members and the overall PC gaming community.

VALVe is doing what the PCGA is suppose to be doing. And making a hell lot of money too.

Re: Capcom Joins PC Gaming Alliance

Sony DADC is the company that makes SecuROM. How can their joining this "Alliance" possibly be a good thing for gamers?

Re: Capcom Joins PC Gaming Alliance

The more people that they the better chance the PC game survive.

I know this doesn't mean they'll do PC games, but I'd love to see a Castlevania on the PC -- especially they did it right!

Capcom ports were bare bone bad. They replaced the quick time buttons with like arcane 1,2,3,4 buttons in DMC 3 and RE4 and sometimes they woulden't at all like in Lost Planet.

Re: Capcom Joins PC Gaming Alliance

I think the actual NEED to create a PC gaming allience actually is more detrimental to the "PC gaming is dying" saying than it's actually helping to counter against.

Re: Capcom Joins PC Gaming Alliance

Resident Evil 5 (and a good port of it too) please!

PHX Corphad there been a sonic 4 episode 3, I would Buy it on Steam, Xbox 360 and PS3 right away07/05/2015 - 10:10pm
Andrew EisenWell, what if Konami released MGS 5 with a mandatory $60 plastic peripheral? Do you think that would help?07/05/2015 - 8:09pm
MattsworknameI dont think so, I think that between the lose of iga, kojima, and so forth, i think MGS 5 will be less succesfull then they think, and tha will spell there end.07/05/2015 - 7:08pm
Andrew EisenI'm sure the Metal Gear micro-transactions will keep 'em afloat!07/05/2015 - 6:58pm
MattsworknameKonami is dying, slowly, surely, inevitably. Capcom is in the same situation, and I think that if they don't get there respective acts together, there going to pull a thq and sell off all there IP.07/05/2015 - 6:51pm
Andrew EisenHowever, if you have a gaming PC and like PC gaming, the Wii U is arguably the best console you could get (unless you just don't care for Nintendo's games, of course).07/05/2015 - 6:07pm
Andrew EisenAnyway, if the Wii U is your only gaming platform, yeah, you're missing out on a ton of great stuff.07/05/2015 - 6:06pm
Andrew EisenMatthew is referring to my latest video, if anyone's wondering. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FkuL1UVHYJA07/05/2015 - 6:00pm
Matthew Wilson@AE the wiiu may have the best exclusives among consoles, but lack of third party support kills it. now if we want to play the exclusives game, the pc wins, not just in numbers,but some of the best games I have played.07/05/2015 - 5:53pm

Andrew EisenImagine if Nintendo started charging for the Super Guide feature it has in some of it's games. That's what the MGS microtransactions sound like to me.07/05/2015 - 12:36pm

Andrew EisenFinished Gone Home last night. Really enjoyed that game. Very different. Definitely not for everyone though.07/05/2015 - 11:00am
InfophileI know the ZE series was in the red in Japan, but international series boosted it to profitability. That may not mean it's more profitable in the west, but it does mean ZE3 wouldn't exist without the western market.07/04/2015 - 7:54am
