Capcom Digital Collection Brings XBLA Games To Retail

Capcom Digital CollectionCapcom has been cranking out some great video games that are only available via digital distribution, but if you've been reluctant or unable to buy their products via Microsoft's Xbox Live Arcade, now there's an alternative that brings eight of the company's top XBLA games to the exciting world of retail.  Capcom has announced the Xbox 360 compilation disc Capcom Digital Collection that makes the following games available at a discounted bundle price:

  • Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix
  • Final Fight: Double Impact
  • Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo HD Remix
  • 1942: Joint Strike
  • Bionic Commando Rearmed 2
  • Flock!
  • Rocketmen: Axis of Evil including Rocketmen: It Came From Uranus expansion
  • Wolf of the Battlefield: Commando 3

That's a great day for the $40 retail price.  Street Fighter, Final Fight, and Bionic Commando are the stand-outs on the set.  Buying just those three titles from XBLA would set you back $40 alone.  Most of these titles have been around for a while, so something tells me that Capcom believes they've seen most all of the digital sales they're going to see with these titles and is ready to try them in a different market.  Traditional retail is a much different distribution beast than the online marketplace.  Here's hoping Capcom Digital Collection does well when it hits stores in Spring 2012.  Digital copies are convenient, but there's something to be said for an actual tangible product.  Just ask all of the digitally distributed games that have been removed from services like XBLA.  Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time Re-shelled and its discontinued friends say hello from the murky afterlife.
