Capcom Co.'s Devil May Cry 4 ranked as the top-selling title based on advanced orders Fri. at Amazon Japan.
The next installment of the Devil May Cry series will be released exclusively for Sony Corp.'s Playstation 3 on Jan. 31, 2008.
Did something change?
I think its either #1 Only the PS3 version is coming out to Japan, #2 The official date was Feb 5th so it could be the PS3 version is coming out Jan 31st and the 360 version was delayed? (Timed exclusive) DMC4 would be a waste in Japan for the 360.
Punch Jump just as it wrong
This is not a timed Exclusive, its delayed because the PS3 version was made first, thats all, they (sony)does not need to have timed exclusives in japan, the 360 sells like what 18,000, PS3 47,000.
Don't waste the money, all the PS3 japan games will always do better then the 360 games, HotShots golf sold like 450,000 in pre-orders. Blue Dragon sold like 350,000, in like two months.
im wondering the same thing...someone didn't get the memo..
No it must be a type-o.
"Devil May Cry series will be released exclusively for Sony Corp.’s Playstation 3 on Jan. 31, 2008"
did something change? Or are they releasing it exclusive to the ps3 in japan or something?
In japan it will might only be on PS3.
There must be something wrong here. i hast to be a mistake.
Just watered down info. I can find sites right now that claim War Devil is still coming out for the 360. This is after all a Japanese favorite, you do the math on which console will sell more copies once this is corrected assuming this info isn't correct.
but not every thing is about money, especially to the japanese.
but still yeah your probably right i doubt its exclusive.
whether they change it or not the ps3 version is gone sell 3 times more then the 360 version in japan
Having trouble understanding my post?. Hope you didn't dissagree I know you're not an idiot.
Capcom 2 weeks ago said it was coming out for both consoles at the same time
theres not many 360 in japan
i think its japan only but i aint sure. or its probably just a typo on the guys case
Game + DVD stuff ;o
It would not make any sense or money for them
Logical if it's japan only. Not many people have the 360 in Japan anyways.
thats a pretty easy way for capcom to save money really, i mean all they think about is money anyways, there one of the few companies that dont care about loyalty
exclusive in japan for ps3 ? misleading summary
1st off DMC is still coming out on both consoles
PS3 version WILL be the version to get for true fans of the series. 1080p 60fps plus its japan offcourse its gonna sell better there
If this is true then capcom just gave another reason why the japanese should not pick up a 360.
i understood what u said clearly, it dosent matter whether they change the info it wont change the outcome of the sails the ps3 version is gone out sell the 360 version in japan its as simple as dat, oh and this is the first dmc 4 story thats gone above 100 degrees and ts one that couses controversy lol
show me some evidence that supports any of claims
its prob just punchjump making a mistake
I think it is probably exclusive in Japan as Capcom doesn't see any reason to release DMC 4 on the 360 over there. I believe they're doing the same thing with RE 5 in Japan. Anyway, never realized that DMC 4 was that popular in Japn.
Guys, the info is wrong. DMC4 is not exclusive to the PS3, not even a timed exclusive in Japan. Both PS3 and 360 japanese versions are shipping on Jan 31.
Right now the Ps3 is at #1 and the 360 at #9 at Amazon.jp.
All the speculation in JAPAN is nonsense.
360 has sold about half what the PS3 has and its doing so-so, but they will still release it on the 360 in JAPAN.
Attachment ratio in JAPAN:
360 owners by 3-5 games per console, PS3 owners by only their favorite two
Logic says: DMC4 will sell fine on both platforms!
DMC4 will be released on the 360 in JAPAN period. It either sells the same or less, but they wouldn't bother not releasing it. The game has a HUGE audience and people who have a 360 or are on the fence will STILL buy it for 360. This article=tacked on.
people in japan are gonna buy a ps3 for this game not a 360.
this is probably exclusive in japan only because call of duty 4 is exclusive on ps3 in japan only too.
This is why
it is esier to port ps3-360 i guess
6 months in development and this is what it looks like already.
DMC4 went from this (TGS 06)
THIS (TGS 07)
