Capcom's upcoming Devil May Cry 4 is going to be one big game once it launches for the PS3 and Xbox 360 next year. At one gaming convention though it seems that the PS3 version is in higher demand.
Since it now seems the Xbox 360 is building up big steam here. Lost O. will help too. In World Wide sales, The Xbox 360 version will outsell the ps3 in game sales for DMC4 3 to 1 easily.
the controls on the 360 are suppose to suck from readin about them on this site..but it is suppose to look better on the 360 version...so choose between them two...I personally will be getting it on my ps3 because I have all my older ones on the my ps2!
"At one gaming convention though it seems that the PS3 version is in higher demand. At the Games Festa Japan, a gaming convention show of sorts"... Now why did i Know this without reading any facts / this article.... uve got to be kidding me did anyone expect 360 with 500,000 units in japan to outsell the ps3 with like 1.5 million ...did i say in Japan? cmon this is something everyone knows without even reading anything its common sense
PS3 version of DMC4 will outsell the 360 version 5 to 1 because 360 fans are too prideful of Halo 3? LOL! Besides, the fanboys of DMC series favors PS3. So yeah, come back next year kid.
Remember the patition thing a while back in march? I bet that those people that signed it relized if they dont buy DMC 4 on the PS3 then Capcom would have a justification for releasing it on the 360 because the PS3 fanboys are too imature to handle a multiplatform title that is X PS3 exclusive. Now that the PS3 version of DMC 4 is in more demand it means only one thing, DMC fans value Sony and will remain loyal to them.
From the Xbox 360, easily. The controls are also fantastic I'm sure, only sony fans would disagree with that statement.
..and I couldn't believe how horrible the game is by todays standards. I'll only consider DMC4 if it scores well, and is around $25.
So will you say the same thing about any other last gen game with a new game? Most old games look bad a couple years later when comparing them to new games. That's just how things go. It doesn't mean the new game will suck. If you want it for $25 though you can always wait a year after release and it should be down around that price.
OMG how dare you lol. The original DMC is one of the greatest games ever made and is definitely the best in the series so far (even though I loved DMC3).
Despite this fanboys post Capcom depends on the 360 base to sell most of their software. I do believe 1.1 on the graphics but I dissagree with the controls comment.
POG that is a lame comment of course you agree with the pro 360 part of 1.1's comment and disagree with the anti xbox part. Like any of us didnt think you would.
Sure whatever you say it was a lame post on the contributors part. Japanese game in higher demand on a Japanses console thats in higher demand. lol I agree with 1.1 part because the proof is too great even from their own games like Lost Planet(DMC4 is a very colorful game with lots of detail) It was an honest opinion. I have yet to hear or read why the devs would get sloppy with the 360 controls when so much was put into the game as it stands(preference for the Dualshock for this type of game is a different matter which is what I think this dude is saying or missunderstanding). Simple minded people can always claim "ofcourse you think that POG" Come back when you have somethig to talk about. Lame comment by the way don't worry about it, you're not going to change anything regardless of why you think I post my opinions. LOL How is some dude saying he heard the 360 controls suck anti 360?. I think I read the samething he did they said the same thing about VF5 360 controls as in "controller layout" not piss poor development and control scemes). Old Tomb raider games with the Lara Croft "rail" control scemes suck ass preference for dualshock on an old PlayStation classic does not mean the same thing.
wait till this sell 1 mili on 360 in a week
Breaking news..... Toyota is more popular than Chevrolet in Japan..... OMG!!... this would be a given.... wouldn't it??
I'm pretty sure Toyota is more popular than chevy anywhere.
Firstly its in japan; capcom is a japanese company, sony is a japanese company, people will play what they know since they are used to the sony control scheme. Now if it was in a neutral contry, australia or canada maybe.....then maybe it would peak peoples interest IMO.
the 360. which is why i bet the ps3 will sell about 6 million consoles in japan next year. with all those multiplats AND exclusives that im not gonna begin to name
who would of though of that .....
Well in fairness wouldnt DMC's fanbase be bigger on PS3 because all the past games where on Sony's machine anyway?
360 gamers buy lots of games. And this won't be any different. The 360 is in need of some more good action games, and I'm sure that This will sell fairly well on the 360 because of that. As a matter of fact, unless the PS3 install base gets up to 360 numbers worldwide, the 360 version will probably sell more.
gets posted by stupid fanboy.
this franchise was built around the sony controller. seriously as a hardcore DMC fan i dont understand how you can play this game at a high level on 360 controller, it is vastly different and also the ps3 controller has 10 bit sensitivity. 360 controller is better for FPS, thats for sure. but for everything else the dualshock design is better.
look if u play DMC1 u see the sign has has "Devil may cry" and a figure of trish holding im guess ebony and ivory next to the sign, which is funny cuz he does no trish until ur like half way of the game.O and since DMC3 is a prequel of 1 then arnt u supposed to see the figure there aswell (cmon every1 dont say time flies by as u can see dante is a big and honestly doesnt give a s*** how the store looks out/in side so i no he wouldnt have the time to change it). then in the ending its changed in to "Devil never cry" (which is hypocritical cuz didnt dante cry in DMC3 ehding? part 1 he says "US devils never cry") im guessing trish did it cuz shes the new "assistent" then the anime had NO relevation to the game AT ALL. and wait theres more in DMC2 its now bak to Devil May Cry and at the end of DMC2 he goes to hell to do wat Sparda and vergil did, fight the baddies and the portal close with him in hell aswell SO does DMC2 finnish the actual story to DMC series? i mean if sparda was strong y couldnt he come bak from hell,vergil became mundus's b**ch and thats how he left hell so hmmmm.... Capcom REALLY F***ed up DMC
should add to the topic title.. "at one game conference in Japan". The line is 45min longer and now DMC4 is in higher demand on the PS3 the world over. All this according to PS3 Center.. Whatever makes you happy.
i thought N4G would be more civil minded in its topic approvals but jesus.... it's getting out of the hand the stuff that makes it to front page.
N4G is becoming the "joke" of the internet gamer community due to posts like this.. ridiculous.
not surprising with the title being well known on the ps2, and being a higher fan base over there with the ps3, this is not surprising
Regardless of what region this article is concerned with, theres no surprise DMC is more desired on the ps3
I didn't think it was possible, but it's true. There are very few people in Japan who will buy anything foreign. Samsung recently realised this and have stopped selling any product in Japan simply because there are so many people who won't buy from out of the country. I can see why this is as far as the Automotive industry is concerned, (American auto makers couldn't design a quality compact car to save their lives), but when it comes to consoles, it surprising how few people are willing to support a local corporation. I guess that's why the US is doing so pathetically economy wise. Americans have become their own worst nightmare.
It will sell more copies on the 360. Sorry.
Ofcourse it will.
So true. Another "who cares"?
Not really surprising. PS3 has the larger install base in Japan after all.
who really cares its gonna sell good regardless on both systems...I will get it but im more excited to play Ninja Gaiden 2
Well since 1,2, and 3 were all for ps2, im not too surprised that 4 is higher demand on a sony console. Wasn't this kinda obvious.
we will see how that comes into play when its released. no wait, let me tell you how it will go japan 150k ps3, 30k 360 US 300k 360, 150k ps3 UK 250k 360, 100k ps3 everywhere else 200k ps3, 190k 360 360 sells most copies.
This was a given since DMCs home has always been on Sony consoles. I already know which version I'm getting since I've already honed my skills on the PS controllers over the years. I'm just hoping they don't gimp it on difficulty for the people that complained DMC3 was too hard when it so wasn't.
DMC3 was so easy, people just suk, now ninja gaiden is hard lol. but besides that yeah xbox is known for shooters, so owners dont even know wat DMC is, trust me i work at a vid game store, they dont, only Madden and shooters lol. and im talkin bout the average guy, not the gamer
Hah yeah my brother and I mastered DMC1-3 so the time we got to NGB and Sigma, we were like "what? this isn't hard". You wanna talk about a hard game, play GodHand it's like DMC on Dante Must Die using only Beowulf.
GodHand wasn't hard dude...the controls made it seem more difficult than it was....the last Boss battle how easy was that you basically knew his routine after like 5 mins,...
I got rocked for the first few levels until I got to grips with how to configure the combos and stuff. After that it became easier, it certainly wasn't a cakewalk but it wasn't overly punishing later on.
HAHA LOSERSSSSS. So funny. This is a Playstation franchise. Always has been. I will be getting it on my new PS3 as will thousands of others.
Well it would make perfect sense since people who have followed the series have played it on PlayStations.
This game convention was in Japan & they are using that as like it is fact for the rest of the world ? Thats Sony Droids for you.
when is dmc4 being released just wondering cuz is its a wile out the ps3 fan base is gonna be alot bigger by then and could easyly sell way more i know ill get it for ps3
I have a $1000 that says the 360 version sells 1 million while the PS3 version only sells about 150,000
I'd take the Pepsi challenge on that one if there was any way I'd actually get the money from you.
At the Games Festa ((((Japan))), a gaming convention show of sorts, a demo of Devil May Cry 4 was set up for both the PS3 and the Xbox 360. The fact its a japanese convention means nothing right? lol and its funny the ps3 line was hour and a half the 360 line 45 minutes. Difference of 45 minutes...wow!!!!
The reason why Devil May Cry 4 was recently in higher demand on the Playstation 3 is because the Xbox 360 has SO MANY other great games that are BETTER than Devil May Cry 4. Why would anyone in Japan who is assigned to write about Xbox 360 games want to write about Devil May Cry 4, when s/he knows that Lost Odyssey is a game that could be written about instead...Devil May Cry 4 stands out more on the Playstation 3 because there is less competition.
PS3 controller is better than Xbox 360 that's for sure indeed. There are more DMC 4 fans for Sony PS3. Sony PS3 is future proof console that's to last very long. Good quality and quantaties. Xbox 360 = not meant to be lasting very long, over heating and die before your eyes even open. repairing takes many months before getting it back to your home. it's true PS3 owns for good!!!!!!!!!
"PS3 controller is better than Xbox 360 that's for sure indeed." -- That's a matter of opinion my friend. Many, including myself think that the 360 controller is the best ever. It's much more ergonomically correct, and the analog stick and D-pad are where they should be, as opposed to the PS3 controller. "Xbox 360 = not meant to be lasting very long, over heating and die before your eyes even open. repairing takes many months before getting it back to your home. it's true" -- Lame, outdated argument. You need to get a girl. Seriously.
