... Capcom just wants to be greedy greedy greedy.

LOGICWINS3612d ago (Edited 3612d ago )

Yup, they want to price them as high as possible individually. Anythg over $15 each is an absolute joke.

I did myself a favor and bought a $5 USED copy of Code Veronica for PS2. Take that Capcom!

AntoineDcoolette3612d ago

Um, what do you mean Capcom is doing this to be greedy? The physical copy over in Japan is basically going to cost $50 after exchange rates are taken into account and in USA its going to be $40 total saving the consumer $10 or if the consumer doesn't want both products it will save him/her $30. Seriously, I think you guys are just giving into the recent trend of Capcom bashing and not being open minded about this.

showtimefolks3612d ago

but i was really hoping for move support

so as long as its under 15 i am all for it otherwise there will be enough HD remakes and other great sequels to keep me busy

fall 2011 there is no shortage of games

I find a flaw in your statement Capcom. You blamed the Japan Tsunamiquake disatser as a reason you coudnt bring Ultimate MvC3 as DLC, yet here you are presenting digital games as opposed to Retail, for the alleged "reasoning" which is to pass the savings on to your fans/consumers?

Thats the world's biggets contradiction if I ever witnesses one, isnt that right Edgeworth?

Lovable3612d ago

That didn't stop God of War 1 and 2 to be priced at 40 dollars...and me thinks Ico's game would follow the same price, so why couldn't you Capcom?

xPhearR3dx3612d ago

I don't get the big deal. Instead of having to pay $40+ you can only pay $20 and get one title. I have no interest in Code Veronica, so by Capcom going this route, they're saving me money.

MrBeatdown3612d ago (Edited 3612d ago )

The thing is, there is no reason they can't go both routes. If there was a disc version, I could get both games for less than $40 if I look for a sale. Plus, some people just prefer a disc.

And the God of War, Origins, Splinter Cell, Prince of Persia, Sly, and Ico collections suggest Capcom's explanation is a load of crap. Hell, some of those collections contain three games. And Konami is doing three games for $50 with the MGS collection. There is no reason Capcom can't do two for $40 on disc.

So your okay with them lying to the gaming population and potential allowing more room for cruption from publisher - to gamer relationship because you one are'll feel this come around and bite you in the arse if this is followed often which publishers will cause people will still support this

Capcom never lied. They announced an HD collection, they never said for retail release. Beyond Good & Evil got a HD remake and was released as a downloadable title, no one bitched then. Like I said, of course I'm okay with it because it benefits me. I don't want Code Veronica, so by not having to purchase them together I'm saving money.

It's an HD remake FFS, it's not like the next RE game is only digital. Nothing good comes out of any announcements anymore because everyone has to find a reason to bitch. This entire generation has been nothing but bitchy kids who make a fuss over everything. If you don't like it, don't buy it.

radphil3612d ago

Here's my problem with companies like Capcom and Nintendo...this is the 4th rendition of the game being release...

Instead of dealing with more new IPs, it's getting to the point of companies "re-releasing" games in HD, and yet people can just turn around and buy the games for, more than often, 50% less than what they debut at.

DevilishSix3612d ago


Actually it's RE4's 5th iteration of the game: gamecube, PS2, PC, Wii, and now an HD remake and all in 5 1/2 short years. What's even worse is each release of this game has been seperated for the other releases.

As much as I love Capcom and Resident Evil they are really greedy when it comes to cash.

It's all about the money, money, money. We just need your money, money, money, it's all about your cash mann, nothing but your cash mannn

they should release an HD collection of every resident evil game for $19.99 anything is a rip off.
