Digital Distribution – What they didn't tell you

Digital Distribution – What they didn't tell you Capcom's VP Christian (Sven) Svensson wrote up an article for Edge magazine discussing digital distribution.

He talks about some of their failures and successes and things to expect when dealing with this new way of getting games in to customer's hands. If you're interested in this subject, it's a good read.

Here's a dish.
Capcom has a very aggressive digital distribution strategy at play. We still have the highest revenue generating XBLA title on 360 (Street Fighter II: Hyper Fighting). We're still the only publisher to simultaneously put out our digital titles on XBLA and PSN.

I suspect we'll soon be the only publisher doing digital distribution across XBLA, PSN and PC with the releases of Bionic Commando Rearmed and Age of Booty (formerly Plunder). Mega Man 9's recent announcement made some waves as our first Wiiware title (and first title to appear on all three first party services). Suffice it to say, our product roadmap in the digital space stretches far off into the future.
