Capcom: "American Publishers focused on Money, not great games"

In an article titled "Who wants to be a Millionaire", Capcom co-founder Kenzo Tsujimoto is quoted making the following statement:

"The chief difference between American and Japanese game publishers: In the United States, publishers are very successful – they're run by professional management. They focus on money, not making great games. On our side, we always operate under the assumption that there's a high possibility of losing money, but that's just our style. American publishers make games so everyone can play. The Japanese – especially Capcom – favor the hardcore gamer."

Anyone find this ironic coming from capcom?

Capcom!!! hahaha. classic...DMC4?

OldSchoolGamer4759d ago

Lost Planet or Dead Rising, oh wait those were original Capcom games (although I don't know how original you can be when you are paying homage to Romero flicks). Anyway GO Gamer throw some more flame bait ("Anyone find this ironic coming from capcom?") not from the Article into your stories so you can pimp Sony and slam Microsoft and Wii and little more! lol, is it because Capcom used free will to decide to release DMC4 multiplatform? Oh gosh how terrible. My god just report a story without your bias, I feel like I'm watching CNN.

I dont care about you or what you think. so do me a favor...... Smoke a couple more packs of ciggs....keep working your 9-5 @ your game store and hop of the sacc... got it buddy. cool. And yea I got no know why. Because I got two Big Ones sittin right underr my C0Ck... wich make me not affraid to spit my opinion. But I noticed you got a whole lot of bubbles... dont even speak but rephrases the same shyt over and over again soo people can agree with you. Your lame man. Ask yourself who is really on to who. Most People with ballz on this site do not have 6 bubbles and up..... I will admit. Their is a few guys that do their thing with the level headed comments. But I smell xbox bytch boi all over you. Like I said a million gazzillion Times...

I may not like... But I respect dudes like: TheMart, JasonXg1 even Super Saiyan4's Sony hatin asss... cause they have ballz. you... just keep hiding behind your bubbles.

EDIT: And Remember I didnt start this you did. I wrote back to you cool calm and collective... you got on the defensive.

You can play that you aren't a fanboy but that is three articles today you post your flaming crap in them, sorry but aren't you out of bubbles, maybe it cause of all those fanboy comments I seen you make repeatedly. My point is no need for that junk in news posts. Now sit in the corner, shut up and don't make me [email protected] you.

As for the actual article I think that it is complete BS, "And as creative people, they like to make something new whenever possible, not do the same things over and over again. They look for new ideas, and I've given them a lot of freedom to operate in this regard"

Americans have invented the RPG and the FPS as genres. Sequels are more predominant in the Japanese programming circles, but both do have originality.

ARVO4759d ago

You sound like a whiny whore! You go off on "kids internet thugging" and then tell the guy you will fly anywhere to "beat him up". Then, you talk about your balls, which we know are small and trust me none of us want to hear about! Dude smoke some pot, listen a little and chill. Peace.

OldSchoolGamer4759d ago (Edited 4759d ago )

Lol nice post, I got beat to writing it. Anyway...

RE: GAMR this douche writes this and then edit changes it: read below STFU.

Yes, very wonderful, calm and collected comeback kid my money is long try me kid, LMAO you go you gansta wigger. If you read any of my comments or articles without being a fanboy you would see that I don't post the same "shyt" for bubbles. I own more consoles than your 10 year old self ever will. Do I like the xbox 360? yes, I've gone on record on my opinions. Do I plan on picking up a PS3? yes when there are games worth a [email protected] The people you mention are fanboys like yourself and I respect them cause they are honest. I even respect deepbrown cause he may lean he writes levelheaded stuff most the time (even though he leans ps3 and doesn't own one or a 360), I cannot in any sense respect a lame piece of junk like you who ruins a news site posting your garbage opinions in a story. If telling someone Shut the Fck Up is calm and collected you are in for some surprises in life, these are your first:

#1. I ain't no kid, I have been in the Army know about fighting and killing, unlike your highschool @ss.

#2. You have a small unit, anyone who talks like that is insecure in their manhood.

#3. You don't need to find me I was in the Army and have connections with recruiters with wide databases.

#4. Your ten year old [email protected] aint gonna like whats coming, simple as that.

#5. The reason I have "bubbles" what you aspire to in life, is because I have also been through college got a degree and am not still in the 6th grade, I make comments that critique both consoles, look at my comments and I defend the truth. I don't need to defend a hobby, its not my life.

#6. Yes I work, and I don't work at a game store, I have a real job, unlike your unemployed well-fare @ss.

#7. You are pathetic, and you gonna realize what happens to "kid internet thugs" like your punk self soon. Don't lose any sleep kid, you never know.

I shouldn't get mad at little children on this site. I am sorry if my language offended any reasonable people on this site. As for GaMr welcome to ignore.

I cant belive that they would ever say taht about american compnies because too me they are doing the same things right about now...Dead Rising and Lost Plant were garbage but still should be mulit..

power of Green 4759d ago (Edited 4759d ago )

I wonder how popular the non garbage games will be(6-9 million copies sold). You Sony fans sure do talk alot about DR and LP despite them being garbage it seems like LP is being praised and is very popular internationally.

BubblesDAVERAGE4759d ago

The controls are garbage and dead rising is fun all of ten mins...yet lost planet online is okay..Im not saying they arent worth trying out but not for 60 bucks...also I wouldnt mind them getting ported to ps3 sorta like saits row and enchated arms on ps3..they arent great but they are okay....I aplogize for the garbage...

Bonsai12144759d ago

i don't really like Lost Plant (yes i've played it)

but anyways, i have to agree with the capcom guy. publishers like EA publish garbage every year and sell millions. when they can't make a better game than their competitor, they buy out the license (2k sports anyone?)

the only hope i have left for EA is army of two, and i haven't heard much news on that front for ages
