Capcom Watches Ebay For Remakes


Posted June 13, 2008 - By Patrick Roche-Sowa

John Diamonon, product manager for Capcom, recently told MTV Multiplayer Blog that his company checks out the resale prices on eBay to see if their old games still hold enough interest to prompt a remake. "To choose titles to revive, we see if we can give old franchises the modern touch, and we evaluate the fanbase and see if there's a market for it," said Diamonon. "Sometimes we see games on eBay, and that's how you see what games people are willing to spend $80 on."

He did stress, however, that there are many other factors that go into their decision making process. Capcom also keeps an eye on their own gaming community as well as GameSpot poll results. So if there's an old Capcom game you wish would get a next-gen repolish, get your friends to drive up it's price on eBay and make a lot of message board posts about it on various gaming sites. Your dream may not come true, but hey, at least you tried, right? Now where's my old copy of Breath of Fire?
