You nailed it right there.

Anothing which pissed me off was the lack of content. Players no longer had their own stages and background music. The stage variations in sf4 were a joke and after seeing ehat MK9 delivered in terms of content and quality (no: of characters, stages, story mode, hidden characters, story mode, dynamic stages, tag matches), all in one game, Capcom fighting games became even more of a joke!

"Don't get me wrong, we didn't do badly, but I still think the game deserves more, as good as it is"

No you don't deserve more when you re-release the same title less than a year. It could of been DLC but Crapcom thought people would be sheep's. We already learned our lesson after you release different variants of Street Fighter 4.

Capcom is just experimenting but poorly executing it. Games get old after a few months and people leave, thus dlc doesn't sell good (unless you're COD and sell multi-million copies). so capcom is trying to breath life into these games by releasing iterations with dlc included, so it won't be of a waste and ensures they make money. Thing is, this tactic heavily relies on loyals/new comers buying into it, but as you see, most aren't.

Serves you right for releasing the 'finished' version of the game, a whole 9 months after releasing what now can only be described as the beta/demo/trial version of the game. Never pull that shit again.

Capcom should take a break of fighting games. Those are the one that are digging a big hole on the company. And concentrate more in Asura's Wrath, Dragon's Dogma and EMOSHITDMC. Also they could stop making MH on portables and do an fucking epic MH for PS3/360, people love MH, that'll bring $$ to the company.

Yeah capcom, focus on games that bring you less cash outside of Japan, like the ones mention above.

Then how Dragon's Dogma[PS3] got in second place in Famitsu’s Most Wanted: Issue 1209? Fighting game fans are just a small fanbase(hardcore/tournament players included). The problem with fighting games is that is really difficult to sell it to other people more than pros cuz they can't play the game online/offline cuz don't know how to.

That's what they get, I bought the first mvc3 and was pretty pissed off when I found out that they were going to rerelease it with new characters . I sold it for 10 bucks...

I'm mixed about it not meeting their expectations. On one end it likely means there won't be anything else for the game beyond the DLC they offer now. On the other hand it will teach them a lesson and hopefully they will take more care and produce the better quality games they used to with all standard modes and features.

I mean think of it wats the sense of getting a full priced game when ppl by now would think by now hey they're just gonna release an updated version at a cheaper price with all the DLC and new fighters and stages so why should we buy 2 copies??
dorron  +   1209d ago
I'd like to buy this game, but I'm afraid of Capcom releasing another version later, so...I'll buy it when it's supercheap.
Scribe81  +   1209d ago
Would've bought it day one if I knew there wasn't going to be a super ultimate championship extreme edition. There will probably be another edition coming out soon, so I just don't buy Capcom fighting games anymore.

I LOVE fighting games and it's my genre of choice, but I'm bailing out on Capcom for now. I won't be buying any Capcom products until they get their act straight.

I have KOF XIII and that will hold my interest for quite a while.

SF4 got me interested in fighting games again after years of not buying them.

SSF4 Arcade edition made me think there's no point in buying Capcom fighting games because they make each version obsolete in a matter of months.

So now, once again, I'm uninterested in fighting games.
izumo_lee  +   1209d ago
Okay Capcom how bout making a game & INCLUDING EVERYTHING in it in the first place than your sales may be better, just a thought.
BuckyBarnes  +   1208d ago
Maybe its because MvC3 was a terrible game. Sentinel and Pheonix killed the game with the fighting community. Everyone went back to MvC2 once the flash of the new game wore off. I couldnt get into this new one. And I logged 2 days worth f time on Sf4, 2 days worth on Ss4, and ssf4: ae I have logged an impressive 4 days on.
Its not that we wont buy good capcom games, cause I gladly shelled out the money for sf4 all editions. Its that MvC3 was mediocre, in my opinion alienated a few dedicated gamers, and you cant do that within the fighting game community or your sales will suffer.
Pretty black and white if you ask me.
