I agree. EA wanted $60 for ME3. However, it is a still a lame deal and it is weird that we are still getting releases for the Switch like this.
Yep, that's the only new game they have released.
Nah, what makes it most ridiculous is that Nintendo treated Capcom as kings.
In fairness 90% of Capcom's releases now are catalog titles. Their only non-ports at all in the span from Switch launch to now were DGS2, MHXX, MVCI, MHW, MM11, RE2 and DMC5. And Black Command if we include mobile.
Honestly, they should have done that. Why? Just so we can shut up the people calling Switch owners "entitled" for calling Capcom out on this bullshit. If this happens on another platform, you can bet there will be a huge meltdown. If people behaved hypocritically, they won't have any grounds to stand on for labeling Switch owners. If Capcom is going to do this, then I hope they do it on all platforms in the future. Let's see what those Capcom defenders will say when it affects their platform of choice.
The entire concept of console warring has always been hypocritical. Or hypercritical, depending on which direction you're looking.Honestly, they should have done that. Why?

I agree on DMC1, but if you are referring to all Switch ports being lazy, that is inexact, at the very least for Revelations 1 and 2 (which got gyro aiming for sure and I think some other things) and Okami (celestial brush).
Just in this case, yeah, sorry. I don't remember what else SF II HD Remix got for the Switch ver., aside from Evil Ryu and Violent Ken as playables (more or less palette swaps but fasters)
I get being frustrated that DMC3 isn't coming to Switch but there's no need to go ahead and call DMC1 a weak entry when it's still fucking great.This isn't the Wii U where there was fuck all coming to the system. The 2nd half of the year is packed and the system is getting action games like Astral Chain to go along with Bayonetta 1 and 2. We don't need a dated weak entry of a great action series to have something to play or tide me over till the next big release
It's by no means a bad game but it's been far surpassed by newer action games since it came out nearly 20 years ago and time hasn't been the kindest to the game either. I'm saying weak when you compare it to 3 and the combat in 4. Can't speak for 5 yet
They do it with newer games too aka "the Switch tax." I think Super Bomberman R for Switch is still more expensive than the PS4/XBO versions despite being a launch title on the Switch.This has been common practice many game companies are doing now: releasing old ass games on Switch with absurd price tag. Yesterday I just browsed the recent release on Switch and saw Deponia (not the collection, just 1 game), an adventure game released years ago, being sold at $40. This game is $20 on PSN and has been repeatedly on sales for less than $10.
They do fine without each other, but would do even better with each otherI mean, Capcom is doing just fine without Switch, and Switch is definitely doing fine without Capcom, so if they want to torpedo their chances of establishing a large fanbase on what will soon be the top-selling platform in the domestic market, I say go for it. Live in the now, Capcom! Be your own company!
What is weird is that Capcom released two or three fair priced games already DDDA at $30 with physical release is fantastic value , their Revelations collection is two solid games, they may not be mainline, but Rev 2 is a fan favorite and of the best modern RE games a lso there was a Phoenix Wright trilogy?I don’t think this is a test. This is simply Capcom knowing that they can milk the shit out of Nintendo customers, because they’ll pay up. Not just Capcom, but everyone else, including Nintendo who routinely sells older games at a premium.
Capcom’s just falling in line with the other big publishers. If Deep Silver can release Saints Row The Third for $40, then Devil May Cry should easily be $20.
