Capcom IR Report hints at PS3 exclusive

You would have thought Capcom’s steady commitment to multiplatform development would preclude any hopes of the publisher releasing an exclusive title for PlayStation 3, right? Well, according to a recent business strategy plan for the fiscal year ending March 2010, this might (emphasis on the word might) not be the case.
The list, which includes details on the number of titles due for release on each platform throughout 2009, confirms that Capcom intends on bringing 12 games to Xbox 360 this year, and 13 on PS3. Could this mean the Japanese software giant has a surprise up its sleeve for PS3 owners?
Assuming this is an exclusive, 1up speculates that the most likely option is a Japan-only deal such as Monster Hunter Frontier or Sengoku BASARA. No, we’ve never heard of them either. Then again, it could just simply be the Japanese version of God of War III, as Capcom has published all prior entries in the series in the Land of the Rising Sun.
Hopefully we’ll be able to shed some light on this intriguing development in the near future. Stay tuned.

It's probably a publishing deal or just releasing an old game for PS3. Although I'd love a PSN release of Powerstone 2 from Dreamcast with online and user created items and levels! Do it CAPCOM!

Why do Capcom publish GOW in Japan?

Excellent question. Always wondered why a game made by Sony isn't published by them in their own homeland.

Could be dead rising 1, but most likely not.

Please let one of the 13 playstation 3 exclusives be a remake of resident evil 2.

A Monster Hunter game hopefully, the Wii is getting 3 so the PS3 should get at least 1 MH game, maybe MH4 after 3's release, but its most likely GOW3 reading that end bit, oh well

Chaos Legion II B_E_L_I_E_V_E!!!
- 2:23pm EDT - May 11th, 2009
Monster Hunter 3 is the one. (im sure of it)
- 2:54pm EDT - May 11th, 2009
it's really weird seeing capcoms name on a ps3 exclusive like GOW
- 2:57pm EDT - May 11th, 2009
wow you guys have some high hopes for this one. i personally dont expect anything substantial unless lost planet 2 is a geniune 360 exclusive.
- 3:03pm EDT - May 11th, 2009
monster hunter!!! :D
- 3:32pm EDT - May 11th, 2009
I can see Chaos Legion 2 with alot of potential on current gen consoles and its a no brainer that a new JRPG, whether it be a new Breath of Fire or some other IP is most welcomed. But who does Crapcom thing they are fooling?.....PS3 Exclusive?..ROLFLMAO. Hint or not, once shy Crapcom......once shy!
But heres to hoping its either CL2, BoF6 or PS3 (power stone 3).....I don't care if its multiplat, any of those games would be great.

i dont think god of war would be succesful over there something in my gut tells me that

It's most likely GOW3 but a PS3 exclusive Monster Hunter game or PS3 exclusive Sengoku Basara game in the U.S. would be awesome and I'd buy it.

@ PSU.com....Sengoku Basara is the japanese name for Devil Kings...Devil Kings 1 and 2 have already been released on PS2 (although Devil Kings 2 is really hard to find...I've seen it once in a Gamestop back home, and I regret not getting it then...instead, I got Dragon Quest 8, which was GOD-awful)...
