Capcom: “Uptick In Pre-Order Sales” After DmC Devil May Cry Demo

Capcom conducted another fan Q&A for DmC Devil May Cry earlier today, where Capcom USA producers, Alex Jones and Greg Lewickyj, fielded questions from inquisitive fans, once again covering demo feedback, controls and Vergil. We’ve picked out the interesting questions and answers below. (Alex Jones, Capcom, DmC: Devil May Cry, Greg Lewickyj, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

PR bullshit of crapcom is PR, what else did you expect them to say. Anyway,crapcom said the same thing about the Resident Evil 6, as they LOWERED sales expectations.

So you don't believe them? LMFAO.

This is just common sense though. People played the demo, liked it, and pre-ordered the game.

Don't be so paranoid.

Is that supposed to be a bad thing? The whole point of a reboot is to attract a new generation of gamers. Seriously, think before you write.

Why SHOULD someone believe them?

For all we know, the "uptick" is one or two more pre-orders a day; nothing really worth talking about, but it's still an "uptick," right?

Your first mistake was expecting common sense on N4G, also I'm one of the people that pre-ordered the game after playing the demo ;)

The demo did nothing but confirm my fears.
MASTER_RAIDEN  +   683d ago
glad to hear it. never really interested in the game until i tried out the demo, which ended up being pretty great.

I've never played a DMC game before and I played this one on hard. Let's just say that it wasn't hard at all. I felt like I was playing Heavenly Sword.

The main character seems to be bipolar. In the beginning, he has a super monotone voice and a little later, he hits a drink out of a guy's hand and starts making douchey comments.

The story seems really cliche as well. "Hello, twin brother! Our angel mom and demon dad got killed by some guy. We are half angel and half demon. Let's make sure everyone knows that."

Also, the developers seem to be very fond of men with abs.

I did like the art style and the way the environment would start shifting and doing crazy things. Everything was very surreal and I thought things looked great. I feel that Ninja Theory would have been better off using their ideas on their own new IP. But overall, the demo was not great.

LOL, I'm loving this "Pretend that the games good and that we've "coverted" people" PR bullcrap...it's kind of funny how desperate Capcom are.

"which IMO feels pretty good"

Yeah YOUR not buying the blood product, fans are...

"coupled with the fact the Angel mode was taking a button away on the control pad"

Then why did you add the crappy Angel mode in the first place

"receive an incredible amount of data from this testing—testers respond to questionnaires, give us feedback in discussion groups, we observe their play, and collect data from their play sessions. We then sift through that data and do the best we can to make adjustments and decisions from what we have learned"

Don't lie, it's very clear that you IGNORE complaints, put your fingers in your ear and shout "LALALALA not listening" when theres a complaint or when someone gives you feedback. Look at Ninja Theorys
Tameem Antoniades twitter when people have said stuff to him about the demo and he thought nothing was wrong with the demo despite being the final product even though it's broken. Yeah you dmc lovers are going to buy a broken game and your not even questioning it, well done

"Generally speaking I think we’ve a really positive response to the demo’s release."

Again "LALALA not listening" response combined with "Everything is fine, Everything is fine" response.

Jeez I could pick this PR bullcrap apart if I wanted, Capcom really ticks me off.

Probably from people who have never even heard of Devil May Cry.
VileAndVicious  +   683d ago
Meh... Dunno...
I own all the the other dmc games. After I played the demo I went and pre ordered it myself.

I thought the demo was pretty cool. Different but cool

if you thought this DmC was cool, you dont know cool.
new Dante = Delinquent.
VileAndVicious  +   682d ago
Dude Dante has always been a delinquent. And i was speaking more about the actual over all game play mechanics. I still don't know very much about dante in this new game. It's not like divulge much story in the demo.
TemplarDante  +   683d ago
Hahahaha. I must run to my pc and preorder it as Capcom says everyone else is *sarcasm* LOL
Nice try, Capcom. I remember NT saying at the start.. they predict 5million sales for this game...
LMAO. as new Dante would say " F%#K YOU!, you out of your f*#%#$ mind, NT?"
GenoZStriker  +   683d ago
To be honest, uptick can mean anything. It could be from terrible to ok or good to amazing. VGChartZ didn't even have them in top 30 preorder games - http://www.vgchartz.com/pre... While VGChartZ might not be the most credible, they are pretty spot on point with how well games will actually do. They had high preorder numbers for RE6 and RE6 did end up selling well.

And on Amazon/Gamestop the game's rank for coming soon has never reached no.1 and has just been bouncing between #6-#10. Capcom needs to be careful. MGS Risings' Demo comes out next week and with Holiday's sales hitting soon, people are going to be spending all their money on current major AAA titles that have come out.
