Less HD Remakes For A While, Capcom Says

Have you enjoyed Capcom’s digital re-releases? According to Capcom, perhaps not enough.

Capcom’s Christian Svensson has addressed some dissension on the official Capcom forums, explaining why some games have yet to re-release to the PSN and XBLA, and why they’re “slowing down” on HD remakes in general. (Capcom, Darkstalkers Resurrection, Dev, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure HD, PS3, Xbox 360)

Bummer. I was hoping for more retro Disney game remakes. Aladdin and Chip 'n Dale would be fantastic on top of the upcoming Ducktales game.

Typical from Capcom...
... releasing mediocre/lazy HD-ports at a premium price (for digital downloads), and in the case of Jojo and Darksiders also lesser known titles with a smaller fanbase, and then complaining about a lack of sales and interest from the public...(!)

I love HD-remakes/ports, BUT THEY NEED TO BE DONE RIGHT!!!

IF you're going to bother doing a new HD-release of an older game, at least make sure it's the very best version possible, including all the content you can cram into it!

But no, story of Capcom for the last 10 years or so: Lazy and greedy.

It's pretty much the story of capcom's whole lifetime, They did alot of versions of street fighter 2, remade megaman 1-3 on the genesis (even if it didn't come to NA). They even did it with resident evil with slightly enhanced ports on dreamcast. Heck the gamecube had all the main resident evils up to 4 ported over. The last 10 years have been nothing new except for adding on disc dlc.

I agree...
... but before they might have been greedy and lazy, but they still occasionally managed to come out with great original new games as well.

This generation though, they've JUST been greedy and lazy. Street Fighter 4 being the possible exception.

The HD remakes they are making shouldn't be more than $7.99 EVER. Especially since most of these games have mostly sentimental value for older gamer or those folks young enough to remember having played them the first time.

They would be better off packaging 3-5 remakes on one download and selling them that way. It's like they have no new ideas so they want to run back to what use to sell.

Crapcom needs to start looking a game sales like pastries. No one wants to buy your old shit unless you sell it at a serious discount.

I wanted an HD Street Fighter 3 Alpha with Online capabilities. It was the deepest Capcom fighter, and came out when arcades were dying, so I spent all that time getting good at it for nothing. If it was online, THEN I could start laying the smackdown!

Capcom is always so stupid... Like seriously, they do this on purpose or what? Fans ask for stuff then Capcom comes and creates or remakes stuff people don't give a crap about, the game flops and then they say that people don't have interest!

People want more CVS, they make SxT and remaster Marvel Super Heroes.
People want MMX sequel, they make MM10 and remaster Ducktales.
People want new update for MVC3, they make another one for SFIV and SxT (but SxT scene is already dead! But funnily enough the game has more characters than MVC3...).
People want DMC5, they give the IP to a new developer to reboot it.
People want a new Darkstalkers game, they come and give us an outdated crap that looks like it as made for the Snes.

And the list keeps going and going. It's a miracle Capcom hasn't gone bankruptcy due to their stupidity and constant bad decisions. I think it's Resident Evil which is keeping them alive though. Recent games are crap but they sell millions of them anyway just because of the brand name.

I just wanted RE Outbreak HD Remake for PS3/XBOX360... But no love for the fans, they make a crappy game like Operation Racoon City.
Sam Fisher  +   844d ago
Idc if re outbreak isnt hd, just bring it out through the store networks and online servers, they will make a shit load of money

"The digital releases of games that were previously only disc based at retail in the current generation. This would apply to SSFIV, SFxT, UMvC3, etc. As discussed previously on X360 this is easy. On PS3 this is more difficult however it’s being done as a matter of the planned development on all forthcoming titles."

How's that? More and more games are being released on PSN weekly. Even more so with the constant Day One Digital.
