DMC 4 piracy causing release delay in Japan, says Capcom

DMC 4 piracy causing release delay in Japan, says Capcom The American branch of Capcom has revealed that sales of the PC version of Devil May Cry 4 have been "pirated to hell" and that Capcom Japan now refuses to release it digitally.
Capcom vice president of strategic planning Christian Svensson noted, "I'm not sure about how Capcom in general feels but it's not doing as well as I would like in the US at retail."

"It's such a good version and it really deserves better sales. I know it's getting pirated to hell and back (it was up on torrents literally the day it shipped)."

"I certainly have pushed for digital distribution on the title but Capcom Japan so far has not allowed it,"
added Svensson.

The VP also noted that Capcom hoped to eventually release all their US titles digitally, alongside their physical media brothers.

"For the record all Capcom Entertainment developed titles will be distributed extremely widely via digital channels (not just Steam or Direct2Drive, but more than a dozen partners across more than 100 sites/portals for everything we do).

"I've spent the last year building up that channel and I'm continuing to add partners even in advance of Age of Booty, MotoGP, Neopets, Dark Void and Flock shipping,"
he said.

Maybe if it wasn't 6 months later than concoles..and MAYBE if Capcom hadn't totally botched RE4 for the PC (no mouse, $hitty textures)..gamers would have a little more respect. At any rate, you can't expect someone to both TAKE it up the ass by a corporation AND like it..

21.8.2008 15:16

This shouldnt be a suprise to any game company if they were to make a game on PC. Thats why console software sales are significantly greater than PC software. Crysis was a prime example. But we'll see how well Rockstar will learn from this when GTA VI gets ported to PC.

That is the price for going multiplatform, they knew it.

Capcom is my No1 fav game manufacturer but after onimusha 2 there is nothnig much to show off, is going from bad to worst and after going multiplatform ... things gone even worst.

41.8.2008 17:00

Perhaps potential buyers downloaded it and decided it was no good to buy. I have this game, haven't tried it yet, but I don't even feel like it knowing how all the RE ports were from Capcom. Capcom needs some better PC programmers to port games, or they need to hire a company like Aspyr.

its like putting a lid on pot of boiling water and putting a hole in it, the steam has to go somewhere............

So the reason you give for piracy is a game going multi platform then, thanks for your cognitive insight.


the reason this game is not selling is because it sucks, kick punch, flashy hand grab here and there, shoot your gun collect the jems as you smash the vases and you can do a supa dupa 1001*10 combo hit, wow.

this game is designed for kids on a console, not mature adults that own PC's a stupid keyboard layout, poor camera angles, bland, repetitive trollop, with nothing more than effects to sell a pointless title that is not even worth the bandwidth to steal.

This is one of the worst games ever and should have stayed on the console it was designed for and well away from the PC, it does not even support 1920 by 1200, another crappy console game destroying the quality of pc titles.


tatsh dude, download pong you will have more fun, or just open up solitaire, its streets of rage with better effects, actually streets of rage was a better game.

Same thing here..I was enjoying it for about oh..20 minutes and then..eh. Jump, punch, kick, run..sorry but when youve grown up with the likes of Baldurs Gate, Fallout, HL2 Diablo and Thief, well, you expect a lot more for your 40 bucks. So I'll leave DMC4 for the console kiddies.

I have always enjoyed the DMC series and i think the reasons for problems with piracy is just b/c they are porting it to PC in the first place. Major games shouldnot be ported to PC. People are more likely to pirate the game on PC than on a gaming console. COD4 on PC was pirated like crazy. Most console owners would just buy the game.

I am not saying that DMC4 is a 10/10 game but history has showed us that games that people want more get more pirated.
If DMC4 was released just for PS3 or 360 it wouldent be pirated or at least to that level. The PC piracy is greatest, no doubt.
DMC4 that you say that you just beat up and make crazy combos, let me remind you that this is what this game is all about, you like it or not thats it, if they have done it well or not thats has nothing to do with what this game is, or with the piracy.
The PC version does support fullhd.
About that:

omg poor u, the reason it is not selling is because devil may cry 4 sucks, it is one of the worst titles i have ever seen on the PC and capcom are blaming a lack of sales on piracy, PC gamers require quality not crap children's beat um up titles, did you even bother to read the thread?


The native resolution on the consoles is 720p not anywhere near full hd and the pc title 1280 x 1024 as this is the MAX that DX10 supports here, the pc crowd has had resolution on most titles that support the current vga ability and for a while its been 1920 by 1200 until you get the poor ports from console based games to a pc so all we get on the pc is a scaled down title as it was designed for a games console which seems to be a worrying trend at the moment, generally titles are ported from a pc to games console and quality is reduced so they are able to run the given title, because of this backwards cashing in trend it's destroying the quality of the PC titles but we don't want rubbish lackluster boring games on the PC thank you very much.

you can keep shilling out 45 per title that the corporations have paid for a 8/10 review of and ran a huge marketing campaign for if you feel you are getting your monies worth, but DMC4 is a real shit bomb.

If you can't meet your sales targets you can always blame poor sales on pirates to dupe the investors!

so if ppl keep being sold complete crap what are they going to do you ask:

1. Unrar.
2. Burn or mount the image.
3. Install the game.
4. Copy the cracked content over from the Crack directory on the disc to
your installation directory.
5. Play the game.

@ Zippy

Man i dont see you post like that too often but since you did, here goes.

BULL SHT must have been what you were sniffing before you made this post b.c you act like you are the only who knew the soft mod was in the 360. Give your arrogant ignorant self a pat on the back but you may want to wash your hands first. My thing was just not to make the big popular games on PC if they are having as much trouble with people playing online with pirated copies as they make it out to be. Game developers and companies have been talking about the piracy on PC and talking about not releasing some games for the PC D/T the large amount or piracy. Everyone knows that piracy exist on PC and consoles. Hell i know i had enough games on PS2 and PS1 to prove that. If piracy is just as bad or worse on the consoles as it is on PC then why are they only talking about stopping the port of games to PC as a option??? Oh by the way, people who want to play xbox360 games online, such as COD4, usually just buy the game rather than get their consoles banned and then go through the trouble of trying to figure out how they will get online again. Next time trying posting without all the arrogant , ignorant BULLSHT.

Capcom is the maker of many 1st class titles many years now, PS1,PS2 was pirated to hell too, capcom never before have blamed piracy for poor sales, but you just cant get it, i will repeat it, games that people want more get more pirated, and DMC4 was a game that people wanted and waited , and if you have noticed capcom havent said anything about 360ver that was pirated too from day 1, wonder why capcom didnt said anything?
Cause PC games get pirated to hell indeed, and yes DMC4 as any other PC game would have better sales if it wasnt pirated.

Dont want to start a console Vs Pc war here, but games like, Resident Evil, God of war, Soul Reaver, Devil May Cry , Grant Turismo, Sillent Hill, Metal Gear Solid, and most of the best selling games back from the days of mario bros and sonic are made for cosnoles.

Now the planet that you call "PC gamers" and "PC's game quality" is only in your teen head, if a game is good, is good, no matter were it is released, only thing that matters is if you enjoy playing it.

@ SDF_GR

Dont waste your time. Its not a secret that great games get pirated more b/c of the demand. That is just logical and he is entitled to his opinion of the game

http://xbox360.ign.com/articles/849/849246p1.html

even if the majority of the world thinks his opinion to be a bit out in left field.

@ lxhotboy

and you believe a site that accepts advertising revenue from the producers of a game and the hardware manufacturers?

why do you think reviews have been scaled back recently (obtaining pre release games) to only select sources, all of which rely on advertising revenue to keep their business afloat.

@13thHour

If you actually take the time to click on the link i previously posted and look to the right of IGN's rating you will see an average score from the reviews left by whom?? People like you and me. It's the reader average. Now if you still think otherwise go to gamepro, EGM sites and whatever other videogaming sites you can find. If you can find a site where THE MAJORITY of the readers and people that have played DMC actually give the game more bad reviews than good then i would really like you to come and post all those sites link so that myself and everyone else here can see that. I respect your opinion that you think the game is garbage. You are entitled to that. If we all were the same the world would be a boring place but like i said and i will say it again, the majority of the world thinks your opinion about the game is far out in left field and that is a FACT. If i were you i wouldnot take me up on the offer to post the links and reader reviews to try and prove me wrong on this b/c you will find no proof that your opinion is shared by the majority of gamers around the world. Keep your opinion and dont play the game while the rest of the world keeps enjoying it. Much props to DMC and Capcom.

either that or paid goons just writing reviews like what happens at amazon, eh zippy my friend.

you do know lxhotboy that you don't actually have to purchase the game to leave a review, it kind of falls into the category of "don't believe everything you see on the internet" as that beautiful 20 year old is really a fat balding man.

It's a game that is targeted at younger adults and kids who own consoles, why would an adult just want to just repetitively bash a button on a keyboard to get a big fat combo (lame) when we have wife's with G-Spots and a clitoris to play with. we require quality titles with more depth this title belongs in an arcade.

to get back on topic its a crap game with little to no advertising for the pc version released months after the console release, a genera that is not core to pc users that requires extra hardware to play (controller), has very poor camera angles and lame repetitive game play, comes from a publisher renowned for possible the worst pc ports and pure cashing in titles/sequels, this is why they have had poor sales not because of pirates or tripwires, from the try before you buy troop.


and the advertising revenue, oh the advertising revenue, oh oh oh, give me more, more money please we will bend over and lube up for more money. give us your money, please please please!

Editor sacked over Kane & Lynch review?
Quote:
Rumours are circulating this morning that the editor of Gamespot was pushed out of his job because of a negative Kane & Lynch review.

Jeff Gerstmann, editor of CNet site Gamespot,is reported to have left the company after giving Eidos' Heat-inspired shooter 6 /10. The circumstances of his termination haven't been revealed, but considering the front of the site is awash with ads for the game, speculation has inevitably run wild.

Gerstmann dished out a 6/10 for Kane & Lynch, which sits right in the middle of the current review average of 65 to 69.

According to an anonymous Kotaku tipster, publisher Eidos "took issue with the review and threatened to pull its ad campaign."

Kane & Lynch currently features prominently on the front of the website. Allegedly, Gerstmann was then dismissed following the advertiser pressure.

"As writers of what is supposed to be objective content, this is our worst nightmare coming to life," the tipster notes.

You're no different than everyone else LEACH!! My ranting and raving is directed at people JUST LIKE YOURSELF. You constantly justify your rampant theft and pirating. Have you EVER bought a game in your life? Have you bought ANY in the past 5 years? Probably not.

You're a leach on society and contribute nothing in return.

Now.........I pirate too, BUT I HAVE BOUGHT MANY GAMES in the past several years. 60-75% of mine are purchased. Additionally I have almost 200 DVDs THAT I BOUGHT but I have 'others' too.

I'm tired of all the excuses and terribly lame, adolescent justifications that All Y'ALL LEACHES GIVE.

You know what? I buy a lot of games too; I also pirate 'em. Personally, I think that calling people "leeches" - "leach" is incorrect, btw - for pirating games, then PIRATING THEM, is pretty damn reprehensible.

How, exactly, do you justify your attitude? Can't be any more bizarre than the justifications people use for, *ahem*, "leeching".

I think pirating is the wrong term for downloading, since forever pirating has had direct profit involvement in it, then of coarse with the FCC vrs free thinking radio stations the term has changed some even if you are "infringing" on bands of frequencies that are held for commercial use.

Pirating is bootlegging but not downloading IMO.

You're no different than everyone else LEACH!! My ranting and raving is directed at people JUST LIKE YOURSELF. You constantly justify your rampant theft and pirating. Have you EVER bought a game in your life? Have you bought ANY in the past 5 years? Probably not.

So here is what all us hear..............Oh wah, Hollywood makes crap so I'm just going to steal it. Oh wah, game manufacturers make crap so I'm just going to steal it. GET A LIFE. Your reasons you listed are poor, lame and merit an electric shock for each one you listed.

You're a leach on society and contribute nothing in return.

Now.........I pirate too, BUT I HAVE BOUGHT MANY GAMES in the past several years. 60-75% of mine are purchased. Additionally I have almost 200 DVDs THAT I BOUGHT but I have 'others' too.

I'm tired of all the excuses and terribly lame, adolescent justifications that All Y'ALL LEACHES GIVE.

You know what? I buy a lot of games too; I also pirate 'em. Personally, I think that calling people "leeches" - "leach" is incorrect, btw - for pirating games, then PIRATING THEM, is pretty damn reprehensible.

How, exactly, do you justify your attitude? Can't be any more bizarre than the justifications people use for, *ahem*, "leeching".
Listen up punk............I'M TIRED OF PEOPLE USING THE B.S. EXCUSES THAT "HOLLYWOOD IS MAKING GARBAGE SO I'M GOING TO STEAL" OR "GAME MANF'S ARE PUTTING OUT CRAP SO I'M GOING TO STEAL."

You want to steal then steal but those that are using those lame excuses to justify their thievery are the same ones who JACK EVERYTHING. Those who JACK EVERYTHING are losers and leaches. Are you one of them. Don't defend those that do that. If YOU do then shame!! No integrity, no nobility and a waste and drain on society. GIVE BACK LEACH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

DOWN NOBBIE DOWN!

unless you can't tell copying data is like thought to call downloading stealing is dubious, because its not a physical item that there is a limited number of.

Also downloads can be considered things beyond the scope of reasonably assessable profits, so please do try and think out of the box and stop getting filled in the bum by the woolie herding status quo.

Two things;
1)Stop with the "sheeple" bull shit. You people that like to use that idiotic term to demean people are surrounded by brand name stuff, car, dishwasher, washer & dryer, car, TV, stereo, etc. I guess we can say that you are not only a "sheeple" because you obviously bought those because the TV said to, you are a hypocrite and asshole.

2) 13thhour (newbie); if you don't like other people's opinions, don't offer up your own. There is plenty of trash games on your precious gaming pc, don't act like they are exclusive to consoles. I personally have lost interest in the Devil May Cry franchise, and by the sound of it you never gave it a chance (or if you did you stole it off a torrent) but that doesn't mean there aren't people who don't enjoy it.

OT, if they wanted the PC version to sell more, don't release it late to the PC. You wait, people lose interest as there are constantly games coming out. Also, sell it online. You get 100% of the money that way instead of 60-75% that you get from retail.

Yes, all those people who went to watch The Dark Knight did so because they are sheeple and they must do what everyone else does or because the TV said to. /sarcasm

Don't get me wrong, I remember being in high school and there were kids that would do something (like drinking at parties) because it was the "cool" thing to do. But to act like 99.99999999999999999999999999% of the world is that and just the couple of people on this forum aren't is complete and utter bull.

So you are saying people are not mob like and can not be easily lead in mass?

There is a saying, "people are stupid a person not so much", know it friend =^^=

Just saying there is a detachment of logic and reason in mass, its something humans are very well known for, as long as the masses are content they care not for quality in media or even government or shall I post about bad films,music and government doing oh so "well"???
