Capcom, Guildhall Join PC Gaming Alliance Board

The ranks of the PC Gaming Alliance's board of directors grew by two today, as it announced the addition of representatives from Capcom and The Guildhall .

Based in Japan, Capcom is best known as the developer and publisher behind the Street Fighter, Resident Evil and Mega Man series, among others. Meanwhile, The Guildhall, located at Southern Methodist University, teaches game-making.

The PC Gaming Alliance, its stated goal to "drive worldwide growth of PC gaming," noted that the move broadens its knowledge of the "PC gaming issues and requirements" faced by publishers and educational communities.

"Capcom believes strongly in the value and strength of the PC gaming market as a global platform for our entertainment brands," said Capcom VP Christian Svensson, adding that Capcom's past PCGA participation "has greatly improved our understanding of the market....and allowed us to participate in improving the field of PC gaming."

"We're pleased to have a representative on the board in order to directly help shape the future of the PC gaming environment," concluded Svensson.

    No offense Capcom, but you don't belong on a PC gaming board. All of your ports have been bad except for DMC4, which doesn't even work in the DVD drive of my main gaming computer. According to Svensson it's obviously because I pirated my copy I bought at Walmart.

    Further they promote SecuROM harder than any other company. Look at that Neopets game on Steam which they published. I'm sure it's a HUGE target for pirates, right? And yet it has a 5 machine activation limit.

      Seconded your comments, Deculture. They need to stay far away from PC gaming since they don't seem to have a clue about the platform.

        :D I do like Capcom as I am a huge 2D fighting games fan. But I probably will not be buying SFIV as it will inevitably have an install limit.

        Install limits sucks though, I agree. I think I may be close to maxing out mine for BCR, at which point I'm not going to be too happy.
