Capcom Arcade Cabinet Announced For Xbox Live And PlayStation Network


Last month, a report revealed Capcom Arcade Cabinet, which sounded like a collection of Capcom games for Xbox Live Arcade. This week’s Famitsu magazine has confirmed that Capcom Arcade Cabinet is indeed headed to Xbox Live and PlayStation Network, in celebration of the publisher’s 30th anniversary.


It sounds like Capcom Arcade Cabinet is some kind of an app through which you can download other Capcom arcade titles. Famitsu say that the Capcom Arcade Cabinet will be a free download, and that you’ll be able to play one of the games available through it for free.


These titles will be perfectly reproduced and will have online leaderboards, according to the report. They will also be made available in packs, and will reportedly be on the cheap side. More details will be announced on February 7th.
