    Aww, poor Capcom. They've released so many awesome games as of recent, and this is how we repay them. (or DON'T repay them, rather)

    Pirates, I hope you're happy.

    The reason why they released Monster Hunter on the Wii is because it doesn't cost that much to make, wasn't it?
    So I doubt they would release it for the PS3 unless they had help off some other companys... I'M LOOKING AT YOU KONAMI

    I wonder how many people would still give the "BLOODY PIRATES" remark after every reported profit loss if piracy was completely stopped tomorrow by some type of Messiah DRM.

    I feel no guilt. I purchased my copy of MH3. I'm playing on a backup and I'm loving every moment of it.

    Those games are pretty much sequels or updates... Probably in 1997 they also had a bad year, as I don't remember buying street fighter 2 more than twice.. -_-;

    So shut up about the piracy thing. Piracy is nothing.

    How about releasing a good game like Street Fighter in Tekken graphics or something, would probably play it then.

    Also Tri is THIS fiscal year and not the last (Says so In the article)
    This year they've released a whole lot of crap. I bought Resident Evil 5 and Street Fighter 4 and disliked both of them.
    This year they'll do better. SSIV is probably selling well. Lost Planet 2 looks fun as hell and When I went to pick up Tri it was the last copy and seemed to be sold out most places I looked.

    They had a bad year because they sold a whole lot of really bad stuff. Dark Void and Bionic Commando we're both TERRIBLE.

    maybe if this stop-motion abomination piece of shit commercial wasn't so bad, they would sell more

    EVEN THE GAMEPLAY SEEMS AT A REDUCED FRAMERATE ON THE COMMERCIAL, WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT

    Jaaaaaaaaaaaajajajajajajajajajajajaj! Every time these companies come with this BS about they are not making money I really cant stop laughting. Just like nintendo, "Oh we are not making enough money!!!" but then the real sales chart comes out and only in this year they have sold 50 million Wiis!, every wii is $200 [​IMG], do the math.

    Capcom released SSF4 and they expect people to think they are not making money? A huge big piece of BS, thats what this is.

    About piracy, lets see, piracy is not an issue here, yes many dont buy the game and just grab it for free, but many others cant or dont know how to so they have to buy it, either way, remember, accesories cant be downloaded [​IMG]...

    Nintendo never said they're not making enough money...

    SSFIV and what not was pushed until this fiscal year, so its sales don't count. Same with a lot of big money pushers. That's why profits dropped last fiscal year. Read the article.

    And Lost Planet 2 won't help. That game is failing across the board and it looks like shit.

    I had fun with Dark Void and Bionic Commando, but they were mediocre and had lots of issues. I got stuck in so many glitches/bugs in Dark Void. It was fun, but fuck, they really didn't QA that thing.

    street fighter 4 was crap. Had the worst controls of any fighting I ever played. SF4 made me offically against any new SF games.

    Most of thier mega man games are over complex peices of shit, they made impossible to beat w/o cheat codes.

    They have yet to release a good wii game. GTFO to whoever brings up...read my sig. Chop to you drop doesn't count either, it's a sad a temp of a port. Ruined by wii's very dated hardware.

    Soul Cailber is the one game they did well. However they fucked up and put the diffitcualty level too high for the tower of souls.

    Everything else is either shovelware or games very few people heard of.

    I hope capcom gets bought out by sony or microsoft. I never want to see their faces on a nintendo console again.

    Um, what? SF4 pretty much had the same controls as other Street Fighter games, and it's a damn good game with great controls.

    Ok, you must really suck at Mega Man games. They are incredibly simple, not over complex. You run forward and shoot most of the time, what's so complex about that? And they're not hard at all. I beat Mega Man Maverick Hunter X on Hard with both Mega Man and Vile...

    Don't know what to say about Monster Hunter Tri or Soul Caliber, haven't played either of them.

    I'd like to see Monster Hunter for 360. A good game by Capcom coming out is Dead Rising 2. That will make them some dough.

    maybe if they made some good new innovative games instead of the same shit different bucket crap they would sell.
