Capcom and Sony team up for the PlayStation’s first Humble Bundle

Sony and Microsoft just can’t phase us out of console gaming fast enough, can they? In the latest attempt to merge the console and PC gaming spheres, Humble Bundle has allowed for Sony to host its own bundle for the week, and Capcom has stepped forward to provide the games. You know the drill, three tiers for $178 worth of games.

Capcom’s “Pay What You Want” tier doesn’t impress much with the most worthwhile title being the Strider reboot from a few years back. Final Fight: Double Impact, Wolf of the Battlefield: Commando 3, and Super Puzzle Fighter II HD Remix are nothing to get excited about, but the 45 percent off Street Fighter V might be if you want to buy into Capcom’s latest game.

As usual, the “Beat the Average” tier holds the best content with Resident Evil HD Remaster, Mega Man 9 & 10, and Okami HD stealing the show. I wasn’t that big on Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix, but that’s because I prefer the original sprites. Remember Me might be worth revisiting now that development studio Dontnod is more well known thanks to Life is Strange and its upcoming RPG, Vampyre.

Lost Planet 3 gets a huge shrug. Luckily, the other games balance it out, and you technically don’t have to download it.

The “$15 or more” tier lands you Resident Evil 0 HD Remaster and the excellent Devil May Cry HD Collection. The 50 percent off the Mega Man Legacy Collection is also a nice deal that every self-respecting gamer should look into.

All around, it’s a nice Humble Bundle with some excellent Capcom games. Nothing wrong with that, even if your purchase supports the cause of an all digital future.
