The upcoming DMC Devil May cry is available now to pre-order at Amazon.com
My predictions for sales this game 1. Game will fail in sales 2. Capcom realizes their errors and reconsiders making Devil May Cry 5 with REAL non-punk/ non-twilight Dante. 3. Devil May Cry 5′s sales become 60x more better than the BS Reboot.
can't i have both devil may cry 5 and the reboot?
if you have any respect for the industry, no.
If the reboot does well there won't be a 5
Dont forget some denial steps where as it fails and does less than before , everyone pretend its numbers are ok and search for excuses .
And not a single pre-order was made that day.
good luck with pre-order Capcom.
Why so much hate just because of the character model?
not only that but they changed everything about the game, his attitude, the setting, the gameplay is a lot slower now, his guns over heat (though they were forged in Hell), he has an Angel mode along with his Devil mode (though he is half Human and Half Devil), not to mention Ninja Theory has insulted fans and the creator of the game for the dislike with what they have done. Also the character model goes beyond much more then just a model. Dante is a icon is the gaming world, anyone can look at him and know instantly what game it is, just like kratos, sack boy, master chief, pyramid head. Changing him is like changing Kratos or Master Chief, there is no reason for it and it makes no sense change something there is a problem with/ people like the design. Lastly, there has never....EVER, been a time when a western devs makes a japanese created game and it has been successful. Look at Silent Hill, after team silent was shut down the series the series hasn't been good at all.
<Lastly, there has never....EVER, been a time when a western devs makes a japanese created game and it has been successful. Look at Silent Hill, after team silent was shut down the series the series hasn't been good at all.> Other than Metroid (the Prime series), agreed.
Of course they changed everything it's a reboot.
@ SkateAK but there is no need for a reboot, DMC1,3 and 4 had nothing wrong with them and they played fine. this "reboot" was completely uncalled for.
@Summons75 Um...there was plenty wrong with DMC4 The awful campy story that doesnt explain anything Nero not just as a character but gameplay wise he doesnt really ever get anything new. The fact that you basically have to play through the exact same areas twice just as Dante the second time. Dante played pretty much the same as he did in DMC3 (wheres the innovation?) Not saying that this new DMC will be perfect but lets be honest here the DMC franchise has been far from perfect. There are only two truly good ones 1 and 3. The recent reviews from the HD collection pretty much prove this. At least let the game drop before you just completely write it off. IMO it looks better each time NT and Capcom show it.
The hate isn't just about the character model. The hate is actually about the westernization of the franchise, discontinuing the story and abandoning the old Gothic feel of the franchise
The exact same thing happened to Silent Hill.
I hear you about the whole westernization thing but honestly what do you want capcom to do? The problem is we the consumer vote with our wallets and Japanese games arent exactly selling like hotcakes. So when they take a look at what the market is saying (not you the market) Western games are vastly doing better. Hence capcom giving this IP to NT. Its a business move. I think they could have chosen a better developer but..it is what it is. Very soon I see more of Japan taking a similar approach-just take a look at square. What was the last square enix game that did very well or got rave reviews? Not FFXIII or XIII-2. But Eidos is doing awesome (Deus ex, Just cause, Hitman and The New tombraider game.)
The old Dante was cool... the new Dante... is trying WAY too hard.. and its going to be lame. The new trailer said he was a "sexual deviant" ..... is that related to that cigerette he had in his mouth in the debut trailer?
Im passing on this trash. I'll speak with my wallet. Western devs are ruining Japanese gaming icons. Just like Silent Hill !
The sexual deviant comment from the news reporter in the trailer was a parody of today's news networks. That is to show that they are trying to turn the public against Dante through scare mongering false statements. Is that really not obvious to people? It's why at the very end he says "put a spin on this" and gives the finger. Ninja Theory actually said in an interview that the media are out to get dante in the game. Please try to understand and properly research things before you comment about them.
@Dante Are you mad at the captivate trailer? I swear.... You do realize it was mostly satire?
I hope it sells well to annoy the whiners.
Rofl , in a way i almost wish guys like you force themselve to support it . Meanwhile the dissatisfied could always move on if needed (after all at least there is bayonetta , and Ninja Gaiden flopping hard warranty its return to excellency someday , or dying trying ) , while you force yourself to eat garbage and pretend its great :p .
i fear this day will come , CANCEEEEEEEEEEEEEEL THAT CRAP!!!!
Ban this shit.
I really blame Capcom sfter 4 game's some of which were amazing they ditch the whole story and say well here start over We were invested in at least deserved a true ending not a retelling -_-
-Man if this isn't another Snake pit of game hate i don't know what is, This is the second time this year people have cried a god damn river (first being gay romance in mass effect 3) I always thought Gamers to be a slightly more advanced part of the human race when it comes to Social reforms, and technology. Then you read another story like this and everyone is acting like a bunch of crabby old men sitting in front of a barber shop spitting tobacco and bitching about the bench being too uncomfortable...
