Sometime last week, Capcom has confirmed the long-time rumor which has been going around, saying that the supposed Sony exclusive Devil May Cry 4 was going multiplatform. This was of course followed by a lot of varied reactions and even some Dante-must-stay-with-Sony movements which resulted in an online petition to keep the franchise exclusive.
Well, with all the clamor that we have been hearing from fans, someone from Capcom has finally braved the hordes, and spoke about the company's stand in this decision. That brave man was no other than Christian Svensson, Capcom's senior Director of Strategic Planning & Research. His brief statement is as follows:
"We are certainly moved that people are so passionate about our products that they would go to such extremes. At the same time we feel that allowing more people access to our content pleases far more people than it displeases (after all, we're not denying DMC4 to anyone that was already going to get it). It really is the best decision for the company and for consumers."
