Capcom has announced Capcom Arcade Cabinet for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in this week’s issue of Famitsu.

A free release, the game will see Capcom’s retro arcade titles “perfectly reproduced” and distributed in order.

We take it that means it’s a hub for retro Capcom arcade titles, which you’ll have to purchase separately. But there is one starter game you will be able to play for free. We’re not sure what it is, though. There are plans for packs containing a number of titles that will be “surprisingly cheap.”

It is unknown whether there will be online play, but there are online rankings. Capcom promises a more detailed announcement on February 7.

Note: Xbox LIVE Arcade box art for Capcom Arcade Cabinet was leaked last month, signaling a likely worldwide release.

Thanks, Game Nyarth.

I love me some perfect ports of classic Capcom arcade games. Really looking forward to this.

Will get to it just as a soon as I perform some major reconstructive surgery on Basil's face over there.

Easy there, champ. The hub is a free download, the games will cost you monies. Think Microsoft's Game Room.

What are the chances?



 

This will probably be the same thing as the ones on ios where you can only play them a certain number of times a day unless you pay extra to buy more credit.

Download is free, maybe allows you 1 free play per day. But each game would have a cost to actually own I imagine.

Pretend Exclusive: A 3rd party multiplat, that releases for multiple consoles in the same window, in which all press showings and marketing are catered to only one console. Exclusive console bundles, being the lead platform, as well as timed exclusive/exclusive  betas and game content also strengthen the claim. The final effect is that the uninformed gamer will be convinced that the version primarily advertised is the only and/or best place to experience the game.

X1: Titanfall, COD: AW.    PS4: Watch Dogs, Destiny

Xbox E3 Exclusives: Halo MCC, Crackdown 3, Phantom Dust, Scalebound, Dance Central Spotlight

I am holding out Game Room without the suck, even if they drop the own your own arcade.  I do hope for challenges and weekly leaderboards though.  At least give me weekly leaderboards and like $1 a pop per game.  I want to get back to running weekly challenges with CADERS.  I SO miss them not bundling weekly leaderboards to do challenges with games.  Midway Arcade Origins, for example, didn't have them.

Anyone up for taking on arcade challenges against others?  If so, drop me a line please.
