    Default Mega Man X Collection announced for PS2 AND GameCube

    http://www.gamespot.com/news/2005/02...s_6117941.html

    While the details about which games from the Mega Man X series will be included haven't been revealed, the footage shown at the event contained clips from several games in the series. More importantly, the trailer for the game showed off what we assume will be one of the unlockables in the game, Mega Man Battle and Chase. The PlayStation game that took assorted characters from the Mega Man universe and dropped them in a kart game was never released in the US.

    While no platforms were specified, aside from a vague mention of a multiplatform release, it is expected it's safe to assume the compilation will at least hit the PlayStation 2.

    At the same press event, Capcom announced Capcom Classics Collection, a compendium of classic games from the veteran Japanese developer that will draw on its sizable portfolio of games. Specifics on which games will be included weren't given, but Capcom reps on hand stated that the games in the compilation will include old-school favorites, such as some of those seen in the Capcom Generations compilations released in Japan for the Saturn and PlayStation, as well as some games that have never been playable on a home console before.

    While Capcom reps remained tight-lipped on the specifics of the games in the compilation, it's probably safe to assume that old-school classics such as Bionic Commando and Final Fight are candidates. As with the Mega Man X Collection, Capcom didn't specify which platform the game would be coming out for, but a PlayStation 2 version is almost guaranteed
    These cartridges are dirty as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore!

    I pray at night in hopes that this compilation comes out for the GameCube. Like the Mega Man Anniversary Collection, it only makes sense to release a version on the GameCube seeing as once again, most of the games probably origionated on a Nintendo system.

    If a GCN one does come, I hope the programmers are smart enough to include a controller option. Jumping with B and shooting with A felt so awkward.

    If they include Bionic Commando, you won't have to worry about that, at least not where jumping's concerned...

    I Know what you mean about the buttons. IT SHOULD BE B BUTTON TO FIRE, A TO JUMP. Anyone who played the old games Knows that.

    But this collection sounds pretty damn sweet too. If its for the cube, Im getting it no questions asked.

    I like the PSX collection, where each game had it's own disc.

    It'd be cool if maybe they did a 3-disc collectors set.

    Disc 1: Megaman 1-8
    Disc 2: Megaman X series
    Disc 3: Megaman Neo games (or Legends, whatever)

    Capcom Collection is sounding good, hope that gets multiplatform release.

    Only X games I like are X and X2, and they work just fine on the SNES... I'll stick to that. X3-X6 just became to "anime", X is so pointy... and Zero took over... haven't touched X7 or X8, don't care to.

    I seriously thought it was a waste of 10 bucks(CC $5 sale, I bought mine off a CAGer with a slight markup) when I played x7 the "3d" ish stages was a complete drag. I haven't touched it since

    lol they sure are!
    But I think they should have just included all the X games on the megaman collection game already available. that would be one killer collection!!

    Great news.

    I'm going to take a guess that these will probably be released on the Gamecube as well - Capcom has given it more support than most third party publishers.

    And if that doesn't happen, I'll just pick it up for the PS2.

    X is Mega Man by Title alone! No need to taint the perfection that is the Original series by putting its annoying counterpart in what is supposed to be a celebration of Mega Man's aniversary!
