You'd be their BFF too if they were that nice to you! Capcom, who's been having a heck of a hard time getting their two big XBLA games rolling because of the 150MB size restrictions just got a big break. Microsoft, the big lug, came over and gave Capcom a big warm hug.
"You don't need to worry anymore," Microsoft said with a smile on his face. "We love you enough to say 'follow your dreams!'" Well, that's what it sounds like until you hear the sudden slap of truth IGN pointed out: "To meet standards, Rearmed would need to shed some of the bonus material that would still appear on the PlayStation Network and PC versions. According to Capcom, SFII could not run in 1080p if not for Microsoft loosening the file size cap."
Ouch. I think I need a sit...and I thought the two were so close. At least we won't have hacked XBLA games...I think that's enough consolation to keep me out of my tear-inducing slump.
