Platinum Games Interested in Releasing Upcoming Titles on Steam

Platinum Games only makes console titles, like Bayonetta and its sequel, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, and The Wonderful 101, but that may change in the future. Executive director Atsushi Inaba recently said in an interview that making PC games and releasing them on Steam is something Platinum is "very interested in." Inaba also expressed interest in funding projects through Kickstarter and possibly becoming a publisher, which is "very attractive" to him. Platinum currently does not have any PC games in development and the decision making for the platforms is mostly up to publishers. He believes many publishers do not view the PC as a viable platform, which is one of the reasons Inaba is interested in Kickstarter. Getting the money from fans to make a game and release it on Steam is certainly a welcome goal, so hopefully Inaba and Platinum Games can make it happen.
