Capcom?...

Resident Evil series is multiplatform
Devil May Cry 4 is multiplatform
Onimusha is multiplatform
Dead Rising is 360 exclusive
Lost Planet was 360 timed exclusive
No PS3 exclusive

I don't understand...

That's right, Capcom. As I said, they were key supporters for PS1 and PS2.

Resident Evil 1, 2 and 3 were PS1 timed exclusive. Resident Evil Outbreak 1 and 2 were PS2 exclusive. Devil May Cry 1, 2 and 3 were PS2 exclusive. Onimusha 1 (Xbox version later), 2, 3 and 4 were PS2 exclusive. Dino Crisis 1 and 2 were PS1 timed exclusive. Breath of Fire 3 and 4 were PS1 exclusive and 5 were PS2 exclusive. Megaman X5, X6 were PS1 exclusive and Megaman X7 and X8 were PS2 exclusive. Monster Hunter 1 and 2 were PS2 exclusive. Monster Hunter Freedom 1 and 2 are PSP exclusive and the major seller games for it.

They still give major support for PS3. The only real exception is Monster Hunter 3. There's no doubt, they have strong ties with Sony.

 

You seem to ignore the fact Dino Crisis 3 went to Xbox only, Resident Evil (REmake) and RE0 both went exclusively to Gamecube.  RE: Code Veronica was a Dreamcast exclusive until it died, Street Fighter III, MvC1+2, Powerstone...all DC games that only went elsewhere after the DC died, and they didn't go exclusively to PS2 either.  RE4 also went to GC first.

 

...probably a load I am missing.  Point is for every PS exclusive game there is probably an exclusive for another console.

 

 

My answer is Valve...they have done nothing for PS3 or Wii.  Orange Box on PS3 was EA.

capcom's bias seems to lean towards the 360. i really don't understand this because most of their games sell better on the ps3 even with a smaller install base(according to this site, with the exception of lost planet)

i would say konami but the only reason why they seem biased is because of kojima. he's always had a good relationship with sony.

I'd have to give it up to tecmo, nis, and atlus. tecmo brought both ninja gaidens to the ps3. which suprised me because microsoft published the game in the us and they still got it done. i'm crossing my fingers that they bring doa to the ps3 too.

atlus and nis have brought a few things to ps3 so far but i think in the future we'll see a lot more. those two companies have never really shown xbox any love.

i would say konami 1st , then sega 2nd and nis would be 3rd.

I didn't ignore. These are very few exceptions. Just because they got some exclusive titles for non-Sony consoles doesn't hide the fact they were focused on PS2 more than any other platform.

"Point is for every PS exclusive game there is probably an exclusive for another console."

Not really. Capcom support for PS1 were, by a long shot, higher than N64 and Saturn. Same goes for PS2 and their competitors: DC, GC and Xbox, no one came close to the support Capcom gave to PS2. Even on the portables, at the beggining of the war between DS and PSP, Capcom was PSP focused. They're still very restricted toward DS, very few games released for it, adding the fact we're talking about a 100+ million userbase portable.

The only reason now Capcom isn't so Sony biased is because the PS3 is in third-place and still almost every single major game they do is also coming for it (the only real recent exceptions are Monster Hunter Tri and Dead Rising). Which is contradictory, since their support for N64 was almost non-existant and they gave very few support for the original Xbox. Both of them had similar userbase PS3 have now.

That's why I came to the conclusion that Capcom is biased toward Sony.



I don't agree with you guys saying SEGA. True, they really did some PS3 exclusive games, but they also got many Wii exclusives as well.



Fail:

I vividly remember the conference where Capcom signed a deal to make like a gazillion exclusive games for Gamecube. Of course not all of them stayed exclusive due to the lack of success of the Cube, but the games were awesome. I thought Viewtiful Joe kicked serious ass.

So how can Capcom be the most biased? Sure, during PS1 days you *could* have made this statement and gotten away with it, but key moments in vg history seem to prove you wrong. Even during the PS1 gen Capcom put it's games on Saturn and N64. PS1 just happened to be a runaway success. Therefore the increased support.

What about RE:Code Veronica on the Dreamcast? It was the pride and joy of Sega fans and was only ported to other platforms ages later. I could mention other games on DC like Powerstone, but I guess you didn't think of that?

So PS1 gen I would say maybe you could be right, but I would put it down to PS1 success. During PS2 gen I would say HELL NO. And now? I think previous posts have addressed current gen.




Valve, Bungie, and Epic.
