Does anyone care what Capmcom releases these days?
So.. It's unfair to use Steam, and it's fair to cancel it all together?
Make up your mind.
If a game has a good online component, ie a good multiplayer, then it will sell well on PC's. In my eyes what alot of these developers are realising is that the PC market is harder to please because we expect more from a game than the console zombie players. If a game is half assed, people dl it illegally, simple. Top notch games sell well on PC's. I reckon its just now developers are too lazy to make a PC version of a game!
Seems strange as it's already 99% complete.
They might as well get it on sale and make some money from it on PC instead of no money and wasted production costs.
Aarrrggghhhh! Jim Lad! Shiver me timbers! Pieces of Eight! Yo! Ho! Ho! and a bottle of rum!
Probably just a big excuse for not having a good enough PC version. They can blame piracy all they want but the fact is that they cannot measure the "rampant piracy" If they could measure it accuratly then they would be in a position to prosecute the pirates.
I think the street fighter games have lost their appeal anyway now, unless something revolutionary has been added since SS2
That South Park episode where the boys go on strike along with a bunch of other musicians just popped into my head when you said that. Same issue here, they're getting so caught up on the potential effects of piracy that they'd rather make no money than some money from selling the game.
Well I suppose that at least now its equal unfair to everyone!
So rather then make some money they have chosen to make none? There loss in the end.
Yes! Dead Rising 2!! Hooray!
There is that aspect, I suppose!
They will make the money back on the PC side with the arcade version......as that is basically a PC based system in an arcade cabinet...
So because a few can't get it, no one can?
What kind of EPIC FAIL policy is that????
What the hell?
The game is just crap, admit it.
I think that in developer terms, Piracy means that they can't do a good port to that platform, I know more console gamers that play pirated games than PC gamers, most PC gamers that I know buy thier games off Steam.
ah well that would be why your profits are down 40% capcom. All the internet pirates stealing your lewt? what a bunch of douche bags.
pram>>>>>toys thrown out of.
An interesting position they've placed themselves in.
They can have good sales (if it sells like the first one) but 'rampant' piracy if they release the PC version. Or they can have zero piracy (because piracy equals lost sales in their eyes) but also have zero sales by not releasing.
Surely some/good sales is preferred over none.
Do they really think all those pirates would buy a legit copy if they couldn't download a free cracked copy?
Wow, and Consoles have 0 piracy ?
What world do they live in ?
