Capcom to give out a free game everyday in 2013

If you are a fan of games that have come out of the factory at Capcom, or just fans of free stuff, then you are in luck. Capcom have today announced that they will be giving away one game every weekday…for the remainder of 2013 (Capcom, Industry)

What a joke.

I can't believe how misleading the article header is.

You have to go on the website and show activity by posting messages on the forums, etc to get points which you can then use to enter a raffle for a slight chance of winning a prize.

You're going to put your time and effort doing this for a slim chance of winning a game?

I would rather take an extra shift at work. make money and buy a game.

WHAT A JOKE AND HOW DID THIS GET APPROVED!

Son of a blee blop.

here is what important "Today's raffle is 300 points per ticket, though that amount can change if we have something particularly cool or rare to give away." Last time I check a paid for RAFFLE ticket is not a a give away

Capcom + Generous = Insta-Scam.

That's what I was thinking, but you worded it so well.
zerocrossing  +   581d ago
With the way Capcom handles DLC they can afford too.

(edit)

Ohh, so it's a raffle? well who really thought "Capcom" was gonna give stuff away anyway.

Capcom is trolling people.

The word "Free" needs to be banned from advertising...

@those who don't read the article:
In this case "free" applies to anyone who's registered at their forum, is an active member who gets points for being so, and then spend said earned points on a daily raffle.

In other words, "free" is something you have to work for, with no real honest assurance of reward.

I knew it! *throws hat on the ground*
smashman98  +   581d ago
or you can register your capcom games which give you unity points

also they aren't making anyone work for anything if YOU want to got out of your way to earn a game from them the option is there, however they have a dedicated fanbase that goes on the forums everyday who will continue to do so and have a chance to win a game while they are at it
Godmars290  +   581d ago
The point is its still not free.

It would be different if they randomly picked active forum members, someone who'd posted within say 24 hours of the selection, but they want extra effort in addition to just being on the forum. And there there's an element of chance. Someone can and likely will sign up and post every day because of this announcement and wind up not getting anything.

Lionalliance  +   581d ago
lol wow, capcom doing free stuff?
Hicken  +   581d ago
It's not REALLY free. Not the way you and I normally think of the word. This is CAPCOM, after all.
ApolloTheBoss  +   581d ago
Misleading title.
Klonoa_Dream_Travel  +   581d ago
oh misleading title we meet again.... but seriously i knew ther was a catch
KrimsonKody  +   581d ago
Lmao!
>_<
They said "Capcom gives free game a month"!
Still lmao

Capcom charges you for skin & color palettes, &...there gonna give away "free" games.
Dread  +   581d ago
Wow
As a fan of capcom for over twenty years

Phuk u!
Max-Zorin  +   581d ago
Capcom is not to be trusted no matter what they do.
kagon01  +   581d ago
Too bad they can't get sued for using the word "free"
Kratoscar2008  +   581d ago
Couldn believe it when i saw the tittle, i guess i was right.
MeatAbstract  +   581d ago
It's bad enough Capcom try to rob you of your money, now they're trying to rob you of your time. I can imagine the Capcom forums becoming quite tiresome quickly. You go in, join a discussion and about RE6 or something, giving your reasons for you think the game is poor. "EHMERGERD RE6 WAS DA BEST GAME EVAH! YOU NOOB! GET OUT!" You get the idea,

I honestly don't get what the problem with the title is. Capcom ARE giving out games for free everyday, what does it matter if you have to be on their forums etc? You do something minimal to get something potentially for free, complaining about it is like saying everyone who loses a raffle at a fairground has been ripped off.

Also making people join and then get interacting in a forum is definably not a bad thing, yes it is obviously more biased towards existing members by why shouldn't it be? They are the big fans which Capcom are naturally appealing to with this promotion!

tl;dr THEY ARE giving out a game everyday, get over the title and enjoy the potential free stuff!
WeAreLegion  +   581d ago
The words "every" and "day" need to be separated. Come on!
MuhammadJA  +   580d ago
lol, crapcom can keep their "free" junk to themselves.
TBONEJF  +   580d ago
How bout releasing A NEW MEGA MAN GAME CAPCOM?
RockmanII7  +   580d ago
I should still have a ton of Unity points from 2010 when I was really active on their site, I wonder if they're still valid.
PickAShoe  +   580d ago
I knew there was a catch. Gametrailer did a similar tactic back in the days.
azshorty2003  +   580d ago
Win a free game. Then be forced to buy $20 in on disc DLC!
Really?? OMG that's awesome ^_^ Thanks Capcom, nice to know you guys aren't totally bastards.

*Reads article*

oooooooh, haha sunvab*tch. Dammit Capcom, you got me x) And here i thought you guys weren't total douchebags. When's the Dark Arisen dlc releasing again? Oh right, you're selling it at the stores at full-retail retail price. F**k YOU CAPCOM!!! >:(
Spookshow  +   580d ago
From the guys that brought you On disc DLC, Multiple SF4 and MvC Releases and REORC and RE6... now comes:

NOTHING for Free!

Couldn't save some face by just letting you download Megaman 1 for free or something?
CNCOMICS  +   580d ago
No positivity comes from a Capcom article anymore.

Besides, what's the point? It's a forum, and I've never found anything of value nor interest from Unity; not even SF vs Megaman, and I had to source that from a different website, because their own links didn't work.
cleverusername  +   580d ago
Free IF you work for them so not free really!!

Father, son, and holy post.
