50°
275w ago - Capcom has revealed that Monster Hunter G will be available on April 23, 2009. It has also been revealed that the game will also come with a demo for the upcoming Monster Hunter 3.

To quote: Capcom announced today final release and pricing details for Monster Hunter G. The Wii version of the 2005 PlayStation 2 Monster Hunter update will arrive on April 23 carrying a price point of 3,990 yen.

Online play for the game will not be free, Capcom also confirmed today. While not sharing specifics, the company said that players will use WiiPoints for online play transactions.

Perhaps bigger than the release date and pricing news, however, is news on what's included with the game. All copies of Monster Hunter G will come with two items: a promotional card for the Monster Hunter Hunting Card card game, and a demo for the upcoming Monster Hunter 3.
 

Capcom Comments on PS3 Street Fighter 4 Load Times

200°
275w ago - Capcom Senior Community Manager Seth Killian was on the Unity Boards recently to clear up some things about the PlayStation 3 version of Street Fighter 4, and here are his comments:

What's up with the load times on PlayStation 3 version of Street Fighter IV?

Seth: The recently shown builds were final in terms of contents, but were not actual retail discs. They are development ROM discs, which play on development kits.

Dev kit units are known to be a bit trickier than retail, and things occasionally have odd glitches there, but regardless of any she-said, he-said nonsense, when everything is working right, nobody noticed any differences between PS3 and Xbox load times (this was explicitly measured by Gamespot during TGS, since they couldn't find any graphical differences to complain about, but they didn't see load time differences either).

Capcom had PS3 and Xbox SFIV running literally side by side all week at CES with no shame - if there had been some loading difference between the two the hundreds of press who came through would have been all over it, and we might have even tried to avoid putting the two machines near one another.

We didn't because the game loads perfectly fast on both systems, especially...

50°
279w ago - Capcom has announced an actual US version of the Resident Evil 5 demo that has been available since last month in Japan, the one that many tried to download and play before Microsoft went and pulled the plug.

Capcom announced it at their Co-op Multiplayer event in San Francisco last night, stating that the US demo will be released early 2009.

Additionally, Capcom has confirmed that the demo will also be seeing a PlayStation 3 release without a specific date given.

The event also showcased some unseen levels, and I'm sure details will emerge of those soon. More to come as it's available!
