Capcom on PC Gaming

The Capcom Blog has an update on Capcom's plans for an increased focus on PC gaming. Here's a bit:

Over the years, the producers have continued to learn lessons about the PC gaming market and how it differs from that which they know well on the console side of the house. Something thatís important to understand is that the PC gaming market in Japan is rather small historically so their personal experiences with PC gaming are often different from those of Western developers. On the plus side though, the online gaming scene in Japan is growing rapidly. Capcom develops and operates Monster Hunter Frontier which is one of the largest, if not the largest online PC game in Japan.

PC gaming's profile is growing at Capcom. Both the US and our European teams continue to request PC SKUs for new titles. We've got more titles coming with PC versions than ever before (e.g. Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, Dead Rising 2: Off the Record, Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition, etc.). At green light meetings, our Japanese COO and the head of the consumer and online software business increasingly request a PC version if one is not being proposed at the outset of a project.

What's surprised me the most about Capcom's PC ports are their performance. Street Fighter IV can be made to run at 60FPS even on ION-based netbooks, which can't run very many modern games at over 20FPS, much less 60.
