GDC: Lost Planet creator disses Clover

Keiji Inafune airs out Capcom's dirty laundry and has some harsh words to say to the company's former development team.

"Perhaps I might get into trouble if I say this in front of people from the mass media. Games are not a work of art. It's actually a product. If we think of it as a work of art, then... when we think about Picasso and Van Gogh's paintings, the end result is beauty, so it doesn't matter if you sell it or not. However for games, it's a product. It is a commodity. The producer has to think about that."

The story is too old to be commented.

a piece of art(game wise) can also be a product, this man is just idiotic!

He is correct about video games being a product. Even if your product is the highest rated item, if you can't market it properly and sell it, then you won't survive.

The producer definately made a good game, but he failed to market, promote, and sell it. The sales number is the proof.

I don’t agree games are art, how can they not be art? They hire artist and programmers to make the games. What about the music in the games I think musician might get a tad bit p!ssed if you called his music product over art. Don’t forget they also use professional writers, so when they use a Combination of all the things above it becomes kinda like a cinematic interactive experience. "Art"

but it is a product at the same time. I know it is good to produce a good game and sell well too, but they probably just didn't market and promote it well enough like specialguest said.
