Capcom Wants You To Pay $70-80 For Resident Evil 6

Nerd Reactor is irked by Capcom's recently announced move to give one Mercenaries mode map to three different retailers, thus forcing customers to choose which two maps they're okay with not having, and/or forcing them to buy them later as DLC if they want the whole experience. They rant a bit about why that's not a great idea.

That's just horrible for us. I hope that they at least have the courtesy to give us a decent amount of merc maps out of the box. My biggest fear is that we get only 2-3 including the store bonus map. I know that people wouldn't have to buy the other two, but it would really be sticking it to us.

I hope we don't move into the next generation anytime soon, I'm not looking forward to paying $70-80 for a game

What bothers me about these stupid pre-order bonuses is that they divide the online community on release.

It wouldn't be so bad if it was something like exclusive single player costumes and weapons/early unlocks (although it still would be stupid) that don't effect online.

Scamcom strikes again!

solidjun52228d ago

I think Scamcom has been horrible this generation.
I want this game but I'll wait for some time to pass to get it.
I'm just hoping there's no online pass. :-/

What did you exepct? it's Crapcom guys..

Vitalogy2228d ago

And then they wonder why is not selling well at lauch... I'm sure that lots of people, me included, doesn't mind to wait a few months to get the game at half the price or even less. Since I have the PS3 I haven't bought a single game at launch and got some great deals just because I waited a couple months.

vickers5002228d ago

I don't care for mercenary mode. I played it a few times in Resident Evil 5, but I didn't like it.

That said, just because of that bullsh*t tactic, if the game doesn't have an online pass, I'm definitely buying it used.

SilentNegotiator2228d ago

What a bunch of morons. Even we can see that this will divide the online community.

miyamoto2228d ago (Edited 2228d ago )

Knew something like this is coming from Crapcom.

Time to let your voices be heard folks!

Wait for the Ultimate Gold Edition at the bargain bin.

But then again Capcom is in extreme pressure from big American publishers like Activision & EA.
Think Win Win people specially for your selves.

awi59512228d ago

guys just go play dead space 2 if you havent or go back and play dead space they are both better than and RE since 4.

crxss2228d ago

well this was to be expected.

catacombs sounds the worse, like that RE5 underground level.

high seas fortress and rail yard seem to be the coolest... will most likely pre-order from Amazon or Best Buy

merc maps out of the box? you silly. This is for the locked out DLC in the disc...

$10 for the mode.
then two map packs $5 each.
and two skins for use on single player only for $15.

die_fiend2227d ago

Ha, probably about right. Capcom are an absolute disgrace for this sort of behaviour. The greediest company by a long shot. Thankfully they only make a couple of worthwhile games so we don't get stung like this all year round

DeadlyFire2228d ago

We shouldn't be paying more than $50 bucks a game. If they are locking down games to accounts next gen. We should only be paying $20 bucks a game.

Disc prices are not going to skyrocket in one year. Blu-Ray will still be Blu-Ray and that has sold well for $60 a game.

As far as the bonus maps go. I am sticking with not buying from a store with bonus map.

Philoctetes2228d ago

Personally, I just don't care. RE6 is the sort of game I'll definitely play at some point, but probably not until it drops down to the $30 price point or so. And I'm not interested in mercs.

FredEffinChopin2227d ago

You'll care when the precedent that Capcom sets is something that becomes accepted industry-wide because of complacent consumers, making YOUR games rip you off as well.

Seriously people, is this not enough? Stop buying their effing games already! If you keep acting like a mark they'll continue to treat you like one.

Philoctetes2227d ago

@FredEffinChopin -- I understand where you're coming from. I'm still pissed over the From Ashes DLC for ME3, which I refused to buy on principle. It's just that RE6 in general and RE6 mercs in particular is a low priority for me, partly because I fully expect Capcom to nickle and dime people who buy their products.

Oh Capcom, that's why I'll buy ur game used or if retail price drops to $30 ! Sorry but I don't like being fucked in ass over and over by publishers

Sony3602228d ago (Edited 2228d ago )

Dear everyone who supported Activision by paying more for the recent COD games:

We have you to thank for this emerging pattern.

SuperStrokey11232228d ago

No we doing at all. COD games have NEVER had a promo like this. Hate COD all though want but at least make sense in your arguments.

RustInPeace2228d ago
