    honestly i think crapcom shot themselves in the foot only releasing this game digitally for PC. they might want to rethink that because the general consensus pretty much agree that this game is crap. they might want to try to get all the sales they can. from the look of it RE6 didn’t meet any expectations that crapcom had set for it. they said that RE6 was gonna sell 7 million but the game is struggling to break 3.5 mill. which is a major low point since RE5 sold over 8 million.

    @Ghost: Yep, game didn’t performed as expected – but that’s because Capcom don’t get it. They’re constantly changing their games for a crowd that does not want it!

    at this point capcom has absolutely ruined their good name. an expect DmC & Lost Planet 3 to fail also. its just sad to see because capcom has been my favorite company since i’ve been alive. but this gen they just totally diminished any type of respect i had for them. after the all the Disc locked content, re-packaging games that make the previous versions worthles (IE: MvC3), killing series to make them appeal to this over zealous casual crowd even though in reality casual gamers only make up 10% of these companies revenue. treating the true fans like dirt especially when it came to the mega man games they canceled. an blamed the fans because they showed no interest, while that was a damn lie. i could say the same thing square also.

    Square has been the biggest disappointment in my book….. They killed Final Fantasy.

  • Ghost250

    the only thing that can save Final Fantasy is versus XIII or Final Fantasy VII Remake

    And, I suspect, Square might just mess them both up. Hope not.
