The Japanese publisher expects big numbers from Ninja Theory's reboot.
5 million from the reboot? *holds in laughter* yeah and i want the golden egg laying goose....
yeah i don't see it clearing 5 million plus in sales
Well, I sure didn't hold in my laughter. I instantly chuckled after the title registered.
Yea, you need multiplayer or something to make people buy it. If I can rent it and beat it in 10 hours there's no point in buying it for me.
Not happening even if the game is Multiplatform. It needs Multiplayer to draw more players in. I'll probably buy it tho because I'm a big fan of the series and of the Hack N Slash genre. CASTLEVANIA NEXT MONTH OWWWWWW
with the way Dante looks now, i predict it will get less sales then DMC4.
srry, but the new dante seems more apealing to Emo kids, i dont know any Emo kids that play games.
A blame the director of the game, he clearly has something to do with dantes new look.
Why do some Japanese companies think their games will be better by Westernizing them. Kinda takes away the charm of Japanese games. It's like they think that DMC never had any fans in the West. DMC already has fans! Capcom's not gonna get any more sales by scrapping the character that made the series and caught fans' attention in the first place.
the reboot will definitely sells less! @mikeslemonade don't give Capcom any idea! maybe they will pull the Assassin's Creed and put MP! who knows
given the MASSIVE fan backlash I doubt it will even come close to what DMC 4 did. The only way it could is if it pulls in a huge new audience and I don't see this game doing that. The whole look and feel screams emo and that's not exactly popular in the US and I doubt Europe and Japan will get it to 5mil alone. I really don't know how to feel about the reboot. I kinda wanna see it get good reviews but fail so they will go back to the old Dante but with the new game play that Ninja Theory is going to add in(assuming it plays well that is)
Get ready to be disappointed then. Whoever at Capcom is in command of finalizing character designs should get fired. Some alternate costumes in SF4/SSF4 are just terrible. Even some of the upcoming DLC ones.
Funny you mention about someone in command in charge for this DMC reboot's character design. Guess who it is. Hint: It's not the the creative designer that designed the ugly new Dante based on himself and his wacky hair. He's Japanese and talked mad shit about other japanese developer's games at TGS.
Dont lecture me. -__-' I'm talking about Capcom's character designers in general.
Wasn't this game suppose succeed their expectation from it being a multi plat title....?
You can wish in one hand and crap in the other and see which one fills up quicker.
Nice Lamb of God reference PshycoNinja.
He's got one of the coolest real life freakin names I've ever heard. It's like out of GI Joe or somethin. lol.
Looks like I'm the only person on the planet that will play this game. lol Good thing I didn't play any DMC games yet, I'd probably hate the new one like everyone else.
2.7m isn't enough? Do you know how many companies look at those numbers and wish they had them? Seriously, your reboot concept isn't going to get anymore sales than the first. You want to make some money, make a shooter that doesn't suck. The honest problem is, Capcom, your talent has all left you over the years and you're just trying to hold onto IPs that even the original creators are shaking their heads at. At least outside of fighter games, where you're just milking them.
I don't get why you guys find it funny. No DMC has sold over 3 million.
Indeed, and if anything, the fisrt DMC was the second sales wise with just over 2 million sold, a PS2 exclusive, so it could as well had been the first is DMC4 sales were broken down to each console. Version after version DMC sales had always decreased. So yes, CAPCOM has all the sign to say it needs a reboot. http://images1.wikia.nocook... I'm not saying this means Capcom is right to crap over Dante original character and unplease it's former fans, but DMC wasn't ever a big seller, hence the "westernizing fever" in Capcom. But the hard cold truth is Capcom is dying. This movement isn't new. They did the very same thing to RE with RE4 and guess what, RE4 never made it to sell like earlier PS1 RE (specially they top seller in the franchise, RE2) so they started to port it all around to get sales up. http://images2.wikia.nocook... This Chart Get was from 2008 and don't include RE5, which sold well above 5m copies even before Gold Edition for some reason I don't fully understand, most people I talked to didn't even liked the game that much... I think they simply learned to advertise their games or something. Capcom as a company needs a reboot. They simply can't get back to their former glory in PS1/early PS2 times.
Um, I think that's why they find it funny...the fact that NO DMC has sold over 3 million and they want this one to sell over 5 million...with a totally different looking (funny looking) Dante than what the faithful are used to.
Buuut, I guess if the gameplay mechanics are totally re-done to make them even better, and its multiplat, and it has a really good storyline, and superb graphics (across all systems), and maybe even multiplayer, then who knows...
...at least give Dante his white hair back :)
so we gave the middle finger to all of those 2.7m fans and decided to abandon them NICE ONE CAPCOM! I see the marketing strategy...but all I see in capcom is greed now, no respect for fans anymore...and don't anyone here come and say "Oh but its a business its all about the money" WE KNOW THAT - you can make money without screwing over your fans you know... I guess that part of gaming is dying with the big corps....='(
Then they better change that K.D. Lang looking Dante.
LMFAO!!! HE TOTALLY DOES LOOK LIKE KD LANG!!!!!! HAHAHAHA!!!
they're definitely going to attract some of those unfamiliar to DMC. then again i love dmc 1+3 and didn't purchase 4. definitely going to purchase this one though. oh yeah in case you didn't notice i'm one of the few that like the updated dante but i also love dmc3's dante.
Capcom's logic: Ignore fanbase. Ignore people who liked the game and supported it. Expect 5 million sales from said reboot that screws fans. ...Seriously. And then they cry "Everyone's making crappy gaems and liek we want moar sales and liek yeah".
If 2 million were the hardcore fans of DMC, then they just lost those 2 million buyers.
What surprises me the most is than for ALOT of publishers and developers 2 million sales seems like a dream most of the time, and are happy with much less. But not for Capcom.
If only they go in to some testing before releasing their games. Lost Planet 2 could have been great, if they actually played the game they made and thought, "WTF? We need to fix this!"
What action game HAS cleared that number? GOW3 is coming close, but even that only did like 3 or 4 million.
....Wait on it.
5 mill with the reboot? In your dreams Crapcom.
Well with bigger install bases i'm sure itll do more than 2.4 million but 5, I just don't see it happening especially with so many DMC fans upset about the reboot.
lollllllllllllllllllllllllllll llllllll even selling your soul to the devil, you cant do 5 million with this crap of shit
LMAO. Good luck. I won't be buying it that's for sure.
Nero was cool but he's no Dante. Now they have this new Dante and I am not pleased with his look at all.
DMC4 was awesome once i was able to play Dante. I wish Dante could be played throught out the whole game though.
I like Nero , and with this new Dante's shit i like Nero even more
They'll be lucky to hit 2m. Esp with Sonys lineup next year. I'd imagine a lot of people are gonna' be passing on these 6hour popcorn singleplayer titles. No offence to this type of game, but that stacked upon the horrible design choices mean this game's really going to struggle. Shame they can't do what good developers do, and y'know... change it based on what the fans want... like what Sucker Punch did with Infamous. This is eeing WAY more hatred than that Cole ever did.
goodluck with less than a million sells capcom unless you dont change that character and link it to the story.
I bought 1-4 , mhmm even 2 but 5...I'm Just not sold.
are those magic mushrooms you're passing around at Capcom?
Those aren't mushrooms, those are called "Weed"
watever that is , im sure i'll need some of that when i play crapcom game to enjoy it the way the dev meant to be .
Greedy asswipes.Face it Capcom you guys can't sell MW2 and Halo digits.They should be grateful that they can even sell 2 or 3 million. Resident Evil Street Fighter Dead Rising Lost Planet Monster Hunter Devil May Cry Japanese developers would kill to have these franchises under their portfolio.
Hell Sega still has cash flow and they pass anything that sold 200k as a success.
exactly.. and only God knows with what crap Sega comes out with every year -.-
Well Capcom, maybe you should have made DMC4 suck less. Good luck selling 5 million or more with Reboot, because I won`t be helping.
If this game's target audience it tweenage girls, then it could happen.
get justin bieber and lady gaga in there as a killable character . i'll buy it day one just to be able to gut them head to toe . 5 mill is easy , last time i check , their hate fansite combine to something like 20 mill . totally made up , but good idea tho XD .
here is advice on how dmc will sell to capcom xbox 360 500,000 because of exclusive dlc. ps3 175,000 that 2 million they just had just left lol, expect 675,000-700,000 there is no way its cracking 1 million as a reboot which people are already hating.
In case you did not notice their is . in front of 5
Does anyone got sales data on the reboot Prince of Persia?
Is astounding what they expect this game to be. This better be the most unique battle system in the last decade.
CAPCOM MAY CRY when this game comes out and they see the crappy sales
is not always a good thing...
they aint getting a sale from me until they scrap that fruity tranny character they turned dante into
They're not gonna get even a million...
gamers that liked the old dante need to unite and just not buy that game.it's that simple. as a fan of the old dante and hideki kamiya,i refused to buy DMC4.when i saw that capcom went out of their way and made dante a costar of his own game in 4,i knew that it was over.like they had a beef with kamiya and clover studios. i just don't buy capcom games.i loved the company in the past,but the new capcom doesn't deserve my money.with RE-ARMED being the only game i bought from them this gen.it's just not the same company. it's the same with EA,activision,namco,square,etc .the companies i used to know have totally gone off the deep end this gen.show them you will not stand for it and NOT BUY their products. we want a next gen monster hunter,are they listening?no.dino crisis?no.onimusha?no.time and time again,we are not being listened to.save your money and buy a product from a company that seems to care more on what you think.
losing it. a lot of things you people want aren't popular!! I'm getting sick and tired of new and old gamers complaining about stuff thats not relvent.
old gamers hanging on to the past(which wasn't that great) new gamers want 1000 hours in every game with equal graphics across the board. none of it is gonna happen. Fact is theirs more people outside the FANs and if a few of you leave and more jump on capcom could careless.
@jet Us old gamers are what made the industry to what it is today. Without our support this gaming habit that you enjoy today would not exist. And if you agree with the new design and reboot then its safe to say that your in the "me too" crowd who has no idea what these changes mean.
of the older gamers. And yea we held it down and helped make it what it is today. But in order to get more people on board things had to change. Me not a me too anything. I just never understood why people place so much on a avatar.
I didn't mind raiden, I liked the new cole, and though dante looks different all I care about is how its gonna play.
There is necessary change and there is unnecessary change. If it works then why change it? I don't mind a reboot if done tastefully. This isn't just a mere reboot, they have changed Dante where us fans don't even recognize him. If they have to change DMC to the point that not a speck of the franchises spirit remains then they should have just made a new game for themselves. If they changed the title no one would even know that this was the new DMC. This change wasn't made to make the series better but was done to make more money. Capcom has been making too many mistakes this generation and this is just another nail in the coffin for them if it backfires.
its always about the money and the series hasn't sold that well. the first 1 still the best selling one. so given that it was on one console capcom probably thinking 2 time 3 million minus crossover equals 5 milliion!!!
Personally I don't think they will make it
to achieve that they need to show some kickass gameplay sequences .. but Nt doesn't know how to do that after a poor man god of war , and then a poor man uncharted , we get a poor man devil may cry
i don't think any Devil May Cry game sold 5 mil on it's own and now with a twilight reboot,they won't even reach 1 mil
Devil May Cry 1 hasnt sold 3 million.
It'll probably gonna do more than DMC4, but 5 million is a little too optimistic.
