I couldn't believe the story I read on the front page about gamers actually boycotting Capcom for releasing DMC4 on the 360. This is so disrespectful to the gaming culture as a whole, every one of those bastards who have signed the petition seriously deserve to be banned from gaming altogether. How can you deny other gamers out there of enjoying a game because of your own selfish and biased feelings towards other consoles?

I don't understand why Rich Newman from the GT staff wrote this either:

"If you'd like to read the original article on this subject, or want to join the petition, you can visit the original story here.[/quote]

Are you suggesting we sign it?  thumbsdown

Whoa now, I could careless what anyone was doing, if they are such die-hard DMC fans in the end they'll end up buying it.

And no I don't think Richard is suggesting we sign it, I think he's merley stating the original source and giving us the option if we want to actually sign it.

I think he wrote that just incase, you'd like to read the original article on this subject, or want to join the petition. It's really up to you, [sarcasm] NO RICHARD don't make me sign it, awwwwwwwww, whyyyyyy!!!!!1111!!!!1 [/ sarcasm]

Sounds exactly like that to me.. not a suggestion at all, just a mere option to visit the link and see what it's all about for yourself.
Even if he did suggest signing it (which he didn't) what would be wrong with that? Surely we are capable of making up our own minds on if it's something we agree with or not..

I'm with Darren on this one-who the hell cares?  Don't sign the petition.  Of course it's retarded and and if it doesn't deserve a news article it deserves a new thread even less.

i am not in their posistion,i am glad the game is coming to 360...maybe if PS3 got a 360/xbox game that i really liked.......actually,no..i dont think i would go that far to sign a petition

(on another note)the only petition i have signed is to get Peter Jackson to direct The Hobbit(as MGM and new line have apparently fell out with him)...and i am not really that fussed if he didnt direct it in the end...just as long as Uwe Boll didnt get his hands on it,LOL



EDIT:and just to piss the PS3 players off even more...they arent even getting lost planet or dead rising

+0 for the contribution.

* purge  flushes the overly used cat photo down the drain

As I see it, Capcom is a 3rd party company, and as such they need a wide user base. Their games aren't going to move systems off shelves as much as some first-party titles we all know of (platform-non-biased comment).

It's not like Capcom is running out and trying to get all their PS2 titles to use the Xbox1 BC to work on the 360 :lol: ... these people are truly out of their fanboi minds to boycott a company for letting them GET THEIR PRODUCT ON THEIR OWN PLATFORM, *and* for other people to enjoy it too.

The signatures on this list are either jokers or people without the capacity to reason. They are truly fanbois to so madly support their own platform of choice as to try to sway a company to deny another platform from having it.

You're pretty pathetic as a person if you need a game title exclusive to your platform-of-choice to feel good about yourself.

At the same time we feel that allowing more people access to our content pleases far more people than it displeases (after all, we're not denying Devil May Cry 4 to anyone that was already going to get it). It really is the best decision for the company and for consumers.

Sounds good.

Now where is Dead Rising and Lost Planet for the PS3, Capcom?

I apologize for my comment about Richard suggesting we sign, I was just angry at the whole thing at the time. It's really a sad day though when gamers don't want other gamers to experience a game because they want it to stay on their "favorite" platform.

Quite frankly the whole proposition of gamers getting incensed about this sort of thing is IMHO ridiculous. The console manufacturers are really the only ones to gain from exclusives. It may be an issue if multi-platform compromised quality, but Capcom made this a non-issue when they ported RE4 to the PS2 with minimal degradation in graphics quality.

The irony of this whole situation is that Capcom, with the success of the Wii, is probably now kicking themselves for not having the favourable relationship they previously enjoyed with Nintendo. When they took RE4 out of exclusively they seriously soured the relationship, and I've read that they aren't being offered license discounts/perks from Nintendo anymore. Whether the playstation fanboys like it or not, Capcom has to now max their multiplatform options if they're to maintain a healthy existence.

I don't see Capcom kicking themselves though, from what we've seen the software on the Wii isn't selling that well. Nintendo's games are the only ones making any sort of splash on the sales charts, the rest just seem to sink.

Don't know about that- the 2nd and 3rd biggest sellers on the platform are third party games (Rayman and Red Steel).  Though that that will change after another month of Wii Play sales.  Sonic also did better numbers than it's 360 and PS3 incarnations have done.

I found this literal translation over on GwJ and thought it was funny enough to share:

"To Capcom: We, the undersigned, payed way too much money for a system that is utter trash. We believed that upon purchasing the Sony PS3, we would be able to play games that were released exclusively to us, and not to owners of other, 'lesser' systems. That, so far, has not been the case. Since most developers are coming to realize that the high price, and low popularity, have made the PS3 less desirable than the Xbox360, our PS3 exclusive games are beginning to dwindle. In short, we are starting to regret our fanboy purchases, given that we could have saved about $200 and played the exact same games.

So please, Capcom, throw out common sense and desire for profit, and sell those games to the extreme minority."

I didn't write it, I'm merely passing it along.  Maybe you should head on over to GwJ and share your thoughts and feelings with them?  Since you are the "ultimate fanboi" on every front, I'm sure they'd love to hear your opinion on this heated topic.   Roll Eyes

The funniest part about this dumbest of dumb crap was this paragraph in the article on gamespot:

Quote from: Gamespot
The petition had, as of press time, received a total of more than 7,500 signatures. Though with samples including, "This petition is retarded," "This is the stupidest thing I've ever seen," and "I got a big ****," it's hard to gauge how accurate a judge of outrage it is.

If that fanboy crap is the stuff that passes for humor over there....I think I'll pass.

Thanks for the invite though! Tell them for me that I do enjoy their podcast though...  icon_biggrin

I agree. The whole petition is the stupidest thing I have ever read....no wait....the 2nd stupidest. That 'literal translation' of it from GwJ is the stupidest.
