Capcom’s bargain priced update to the successful Marvel vs Capcom 3 doesn’t appear to be performing as well as its predecessor.
That's because most people got this game earlier in the year already. Why buy it twice?
Well people keep rebuying COD, Capcom thought they'd get on the bandwagon lol.
Are you that dense? Cod is still a different game.umvc3 is a rerelease.
To be quite honest, MW3 is a 60 dollar map pack. Nothing really has changed at all.
lol T900 while it is true, MVC just came out this year, they coulda just delayed it and released UMVC and we woulda been good. now PSX99 like Vgameman says, MW1-2-3 are all just map packs honestly. and MW3 was the worst map pack out of all of them
@Tanir Lol maybe capcom decided to take it a notch further, you know release the same game in the same year again haha. I bet if more people would have bought it they would have been like: "We are on the right track.. bump it to 3 releases a year, along with DLCs" which would have had Activition raising an eyebrow too :P @PSX99 I personally dont see a difference between MW1 - MW3 its all just new maps.
This is good news to me.
I hate it when developers pull this kind of crap. I stop buying crapcom games at launch because eventually they release a new edition of the same game later I'll wait for the Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 game of the year edition.
so should i buy street fight x tekken when it come out or wait?
definitely wait. I give it a week to a month, before people learn that the game has blocked characters already on the disk. Then of course they will add DLC to unlock them, then further down they will do the above and re release it calling it ulimate with the dlc you just bought and a couple of costumes or something. Video games are starting to become really sad.
if you want it yea. Capcom cant whore it like one of their own. Their shouldn't be another MVC3 for a while if it even happens Edit: even if dlc it would cost 60 bucks. Hell 5 dollars is steep for a single character but better than 7 for robin with 2 challenge rooms
well to be expected considering MW3, Unchrated 3, Skyrim, Skyward Sword were all out the same month
nooo! don't use logic!
Good, because i am sick of this stupid milking. Make new games GREEDCOM.
"Capcom’s bargain priced update to the successful Marvel vs Capcom 3 doesn’t appear to be performing as well as its predecessor" Yeah, that's because people got smart and didn't waste they're money on a clear as day, greedy move by Capcom. About time their bullshit caught up with them. And as much as I love Phoenix Wright, Frank West and Nemesis in the new game, I'm not falling for their cheap tricks to get my money. They could have released all those characters as DLC and patched the game for fixes... Any game can do it, its just up to the developers and how they program their games and how they perform business. Serves you right Capcom.
Question How much are they selling this "New" game for?
It's a lot cheaper here than MvC3 was, UMvC3 is €30 on release here, MvC3 was €50 and at cheapest now is €25 pre-owned. Never been a fan of Capcom games myself but I know a lot of people are and that are sick of them, what they pulled with Spectator Mode (or should I say the complete lack of it in MvC3) was ridiculous, can't believe companies can get away with stuff like this.
Just checked... Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 is currently going for $39.99 right now, here in the US. I feel its 20 dollars cheaper than the original version, and a hell of a lot more money than what it really should be. I want to get this game for Phoenix Wright so bad, but Capcom needs to learn to stop nickle and diming their fans. I supported them through RE5 and a lot of other shit, but when they try and lure me in with Ace Attorney, I have to draw the line there and stop giving them my money. Not sure if anyone else feels the same way?
I guess they'll stop supporting the PS3 and Xbox 360 consoles, a la Wii, because of sales. /s Double standards, in effect!
Should have just been DLC.
but then they wouldn't have been able to waste all that money on production and printing to justify the pricetag.
The DLC would've been atleast $40? 12 new characters, new levels, costumes, etc.
^^ Sounds like DLC to me. Or better yet, what we PC gamers used to call "Expansion Packs".
What I'm saying is the DLC, or "expansion pack" would've been atleast $40. That's the same as the price of UMVC3. So why's it matter? Atleast this way you could sell MVC3 for $10-20, and buy the new one with that money.
This is a new lesson for me: Never buy another fighting title from CAPCOM. I had enough of their greed and laziness. Besides, the good old Resi games are dead. No more mistery, puzzles and spine chill...
Knowing Capcom, this will result in them declaring that "VS games don't work and nobody plays fighting games any more, we have to concentrate on the action and FPS markets now in order to keep up with the west" while they stare bewilderingly at the walls because of the dangerous cocktail of cocaine and LSD they've been hammering since earlier this generation. Still, nice to see some of their greedy chickens coming home to roost. Will you listen to your fans now, Capcom (however many are left)? Probably not, but if you have to be deep-sixed in order for other publishers and developers to learn a valuable lesson about gouging and ignoring your fan-base, then I'll be right there to wave bye-bye as you sink to the bottom. I don't see you ever returning to your glory days.
Well done to the people who didn't buy into Capcoms crap......see do this with Resident Evil: ORC and dmc and those arseholes will get a real wakeup call
It makes me so happy
Most likely I'll be playing a pirate copy in my 360 :O (just like I played Black Ops campaign)
Couldn't be happier. I pray they don't start doing this with all of their games... Asura's Wrath... Asura's Mega Wrath, Super Asura's Mega Wrath Turbo, Super Asura's Mega Wrath Turbo: Championship Edition, Ultimate Super Asura's Mega Wrath Turbo: Championship Edition Arcade
Isn't this like the second M v. C in less than 12 months. Capcom did that to me with SF4 which at first I love and now have just given up. SF4 SSF4 SSF4 Edition ..all in a bit over a year. They ruined the online community
wrong they each came out a year later. 2009, 2010 , 2011 And if you had super all you needed was 15 dollars more for AE
Good. I purchased MVC3 when it first came out and when i heard about UMVC3 coming out a few months later I was pissed. Go fuck yourself Capcom.
No Ken No Buy
I'm getting it on the Vita
