Six Days Into 2012 and we Have a Candidate For Worst Box Art of the Year

Kotaku - And, surprise surprise, it's for a HD anthology, in this case the re-releases of the first three Devil May Cry games.

HD collections always look terrible... I'll admit, though, that this one is especially bad.

Yui_Suzumiya3543d ago

The HD collection for Silent Hill has a bad ass cover.

gaffyh3543d ago

Honestly, this DMC one doesn't even look too bad.

I must be the only one who actually kind of likes dmc cover art.

The HD collection for MGS looked good, no complaints on my end.

reznik_zerosum3543d ago

MGS-HD Collection one, was pretty good,not kitschy but kinda arty :)

Solid_Snake373543d ago

the covers are always badass! Yoji Shinkawa is the man

NeoBasch3543d ago

I disagree with this assertion. MGS, Silent Hill, Ico and Shadow of the Colossus, the God of War collections, and Prince of Persia have all been great... if you're referring to region 1. UK is a whole other story. Those box arts are terribad, that Classics HD banner they've been pioneering over there is hideous. I'd actually print off my own cover just so its shabby design didn't stand out in my collection. They are god awful. Over here in the West, they actually look quite nice. Minus the awful Devil May Cry and Tomb Raider collection.

Xbox 360 version >>> a flaming turd >>> ps3 version. You know its the truth. That giant silver sash is just ridiculous.

I've seen worse, besides idc abou the boxart its the game inside what's important.

Seventh_Blood_Reborn3543d ago (Edited 3543d ago )

Very true.

But it' s not that hard to make a great cover! Expecially if you have years of time and a bunch of good artists like the most of the developers teams ;)

banjadude3543d ago

True... if only this was said a lot more during (FOR EXAMPLE) the Resistance 3 articles.

JohnApocalypse3543d ago

Its good idea to have it like this though. People will see it in a store and they'll know it has 3 games in one

Baka-akaB3543d ago

It's far from the worse , it's exactly what you expect from a collection , a mash up of all the games included .. It's just efficiently cold .

At least it got the collection angle as an excuse , other games however ..

Adexus3543d ago

Imagine Capcom putting the new Dante on the Collecton cover... I can see the DmC fans now... would be hilarious.

Anyway the box art isn't too bad for the 360, the PS3 version leaves a lot to be desired though, would've been cool if they made some new artwork for it and just had that as the cover, oh well I'll still be buying the 360 version.

Silly gameAr3543d ago (Edited 3543d ago )

They're pretty much the same covers except for that weird gray banner on the PS3 version. I don't think the box art looks to bad myself. Anyway, congrats on getting the 360 version, now here's your cookie.
