Capcom hits £32m half-year profit

Postby flyfletch » 31 Oct 2012, 12:11

To be honest i really wanted this game to bomb, its the only thing that would teach Capcom a lesson. Fans have been telling them for years now that this is not the Resident evil they want, and what do Capcom do? Ignore them.

Who can blame them i suppose when people go out in their droves and buy it anyway. :?

Oh joy. I loved the direction they took resident evil in as well. Happy happy joy joy indeed.
Some say he's half man, half fish. Others say its more of a 70/30 split. Whatever the percentage, he's one fishy bastard.

This right here is why people were annoyed by CVG's Resi 6 review as it helped to bolster sales of a game that rightfully should have been slaughtered at retail.

Capcom did knock out a fine game with Dragon's Dogma I thought, glad that it did quite well.

Cant help but wonder how much 'profit' came from the high price of DLC that alot of people will have probably bought, regardless of the issue with it being on-disc already.
Time to rock n' ruin!
