Proof that the IQ some gamers (1024 of them to date) can be a negative number:

How will it make them enjoy the game any less just because it is on the 360 and PC?

I'm pretty sure that if Nintendo had decided to stop making home consoles after the gamecube, that plenty of Nintendo fans would have boycotted Super Mario Galaxy for the 360. icon_smile

Wow, if I had known a petition was all it took, we could have asked Acclaim to stop making games for every platform about 10 years ago.

Even if they get 10k or 20k or 100k names, believe me there are more than enough of us who will buy Capcom 360 games to offset their ridiculousness.

And of course, half of them will buckle. biggrin

Of course my boycott of all things interplay after what was the disaster with the FO2 patches was entirely successful.  Want proof or to play online chess? Just click here

Oh look, "I HATE THE JEWS AND GIRLS" signed it.  His name on the petition will most certainly strike fear into Capcom, scaring them into a one-console future.

This petition baffles me.

Never underestimate the capacity for human stupidity. But #10 is brilliant in his lucid explanation of why he will never buy a Sony product again. Truly admirable.

I clicked through some of the signatures. It gets entertaining once you notice all the sarcastic entries making fun of the people who were serious when they signed it.

surely being multiformat will bring the game/company more money and then perhaps more chance of another sequel if they like it

Wow.  If you can't string together a few words to make a regular sentence, please, for the love of all things grammatical, do not try to speak in legalese.

So, if the game is great, millions will buy it.  If the boycott works (of course it won't, I'm being hypothetical), it will only sell millions on the 360.  How, exactly, does they help out the PS3? The boycott sure doesn't mean a thing to MS.
