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.

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.

... 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.

... 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!

Oni-Fucking- Musha Capcom. HD remaster this series before you start getting god damn lazy. Its the only game i want from you right now....
