Fans Furious At Capcom Again

Eskimo Press: "At first glance Capcom's Arcade Cabinet looks like a must-buy for most old-school gamers -- Section Z, Ghost n' Goblins, Gun Smoke, the list goes on -- but this is not the case at all. It seems as though Capcom are just pissing off their core fans." (Capcom Arcade Cabinet, PS3, Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection, Xbox 360)

Capcom have been real cheapskates these past few years. They used to be one of my favorite developers/publishers. Back in the day I associated them with quality games that gave players a challenge. Now whenever they release a game I always think that I might as well not get that game until a few months, or a year later, because I know they're gonna release a "Super/ultra/deluxe" edition later, with extra content, and usually at a lower price

Man, I too miss the old days when CAPCOM made the classic Resident Evils, Breath of Fires and DMC. At the time I respected them and looked forward to their next game. Now I always look forward to their next blunder...

Im glad you used the word "cheapskate" because if theres one thing that really infuriated me about Capcom was SFxT.
They used the exact same characters from Street Fighter 4 and put them in SFxT and called it a new game, theyc ompletely ignored the fans requests for the different characters from other games and just cut corners. Then they take more copy/paste characters and charge us 20 dollars for it while they are still in the disc...

Oh Capcom you so classy....

anyone who supports & buys Scamcom games deserves whatever BS Scamcom gives them. If you haven't figured it out by now that Scamcom is just plain ripping everyone off with there nickel & diming you never will so just live with being ripped off.

The only way anything will ever change is to not support them. When they lose enough money they will either fix the problem of go out of business. At this point either option works for me.

LOl so much disagrees for you, it means that people like being scammed by Scammcom/Cahscom/Crapcom, those sheeps. Like Hano below.

wow i guess there are a lot of people that like to be scamed by scamcom(excellent name btw), otherwise i really cant see why you have so many disagrees, i for one agree with you,stop buying crapcom games and you wont get screwed over and they may actually gain some common sense.
vork77  +   706d ago
i buy them used so crapcom dont get anything from me
JeromeNtheHouse  +   706d ago
I can't stand Cashcom. I too used to think they were cool (which they were) in terms of the games they released back in the day. But now, they're jus rediculous... On-Disc DLC, cutting franchises short (Mega Man), oh yea...RE5 and RE6.

I jus don't even bother with them anymore.
hano  +   706d ago
Not this again. I appreciate the crusade against Capcom done by some angry geeks.

However, Capcom remained strong in this business because through out their history they produced awesome games and continue to do so.

Sure the disk locked DLC was a dick move, but if you don't like something don't buy it. Some people just whine about anything Capcom related.

You don't think $45USD is too much for 15 mediocre retro 16bit games? Each to their own, I guess.
lodossrage  +   706d ago
even worse
some of those aren't EVEN 16 bit.
hano  +   706d ago
I have seen people gobble up bad games like Aliens CM and buy COD map packs for insane amounts of money.

I'm saying that anything Capcom does, some people hold torches and forks and talk shit about the company. But it doesn't change the fact they make great games.

So for this deal, you have the option to wait and buy the full pack for 30$ or buy the games you want individually or don't buy the games at all if you think the asking price is too much. That's the best way to send them a message.

However, some people seem to have it in for Capcom sometimes even if the situation doesn't call for such behavior.

thank god team ninja hasn't done that, all the dlc for the wii u version of ninja gaiden razor's edge, all dlc is free, and all the new 25 trial levels, and costumes, and all other extra content on the ps3 and 360 versions, the wii u is going to get all of that content too as a free download. if capcom ever brings tha game to wii u? i will pass, thank you, i love old arcade classics, but not that much. what happened to you capcom? you are all about the money now, how sad,oh well keep it up, and you'll end up like thq!!
barb_wire  +   706d ago
Very pricey those are.. $45 to buy the separate packs or $30 for the all-in-one pack.. which is still crazy expensive for 15 games..

I used to love capcom as a company, but now when I see a game with the capcom logo, I have to think twice about buying that game. Given their track record, their games have been incomplete and have a lot of disc locked content.What hurts even more is that they are making good money from DLC. It's mainly the non-capcom fan base that buy into their DLC, the ones who just got into capcom games like RE5-6 or SFxTK. The only DLC I ever bought from Capcom was for Megaman 9...which was a rip off when I think about it.

IMO, DLC has killed the unlockables in games. I shouldn't have to buy costumes that are in the game! When I beat megaman 9/10, I should be able to UNLOCK the ability to play as protoman and Bass. Achievements is just so damn stupid!

You killed 50000 Xenomorphs! Here's a trophy!

That's all I get? A stupid trophy! Give me something better like a costume or a gun or a stage or a character!

Not all DLC is bad. I do like expansions like Dragon born and the GTA4 episodes. That's DLC that adds way more to the game than just letting you have a new costumes.

I really do hope Capcom gets eaten up by Nintendo. It would be hilarious if Platinum games bought Capcom out.

To think that i had all the RE, DMC and Ominusha last gen but this gen i don't have a single Capcom game.

Hopefully they reboot themselves next gen.
aiBreeze  +   706d ago
Meh, would you expect any less of Capcom these days? With a bit of luck, it will effect their next gen sales and force them to rethink their strategies and people's opinion of them.. sadly, it will probably get worse before it gets better.

oh fuck that

I would love to support this kind of thing, old games running in fancy emulated environments on modern consoles. Some of my favorite games I go back to time and again are old classics like these. But at this price I won't be an adopter that's for sure. There have been way to many reasonably priced classic collections from other companies to even consider this. Even Capcom themselves made more affordable collections in the past on the PS2 and PSP. They will find more people will stick with emulators on their PC with prices like these >.<
Knushwood Butt  +   706d ago
As much as I dislike Capcom's strategy of the last few years, I don't really see what the big deal is here.

If you want all the games, wait and save yourself some cash.

If you don't want all the games, just get the ones you want, and save yourself some cash by not buying them all.

I'm sure waiting a few weeks for games that came out 30 years ago isn't going to hurt anyone.
Whitefox789  +   706d ago
I'll stick with Sonic's Ultimate Genesis collection thank you.

Ohh by the way Capcom you can go ahead and rot.
kingPoS  +   704d ago
I don't know if it was a glitch, error or whatever but currently it's at a 100% discount on psn... Better Hurry!
