Capcom reveals length of Sony approval process

Ross Miller

It's rare that us common folk get a glimpse of the inner workings of the industry makers, so when we glean even the tiniest morsels of information, we take note. Today's nugget of wisdom comes from Christian Svensson, Capcom's vice president of strategic planning & business development. In an interview on the official company blog, Svensson sheds some light on how Sony's approval works, including the length of time to get approved.

"SCEA and MS can turn things around in 5-7 days most times," he said. "SCEE is closer to two weeks but they have a system where you can see the progress and bugs as they're testing." Svensson estimates it takes the company five or six more days after a fail report from one of the console makers before they resubmit. Rinse, lather, repeat. Keep that in mind next time you read about a PlayStation Network or Xbox Live Arcade game submitted for approval. Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo HD Remix is currently awaiting approval on both platforms.
