 Actually, Sega and Nintendo screen third parties too.  They just have 
 different ideas of quality than Sony does.  The only reason Capcom may 
 drop Sony(I personally don't beleive it) would be because Sony's QC is 
 too strict, and they may never bend at all.
 BTW, Mystical Ninja on the SNES was a great game, but it didn't do 
 anything special in terms of sales here.  Sony may have some screwed up 
 ideas of RPG's, but they do have to look at the bottom line.  Even 
 Konami themselves have said that Goeman is a game best suited to the 
 Japanese culture, and should stay there.
