Capcom makes port decisions through eBay

Company looks at top selling retro titles for inspiration

John Diamonon, an associate product manager at Capcom, has said that the firm looks to eBay in order to find out what old games people would like to see on today's formats.

"Sometimes we see games on eBay, and that's how you see what games people are willing to spend $80 on," Diamonon toldMTV.

"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."

Diamonon was quick to add that this wasn't the only thing the company considered when deciding what to release through the services though.

Capcom's latest retro release is Bionic Commando Rearmed, which is scheduled to appear some time this month.
