To be honest, I'd look no further than Steam for an idea on how to run a successful digital game marketplace. Ever since I've gotten in to Steam 18 months ago, my number of pirated games? Zero.

Make it easily available at a good price (I've still bought brand new games off Steam for $50 on release day) worldwide, and the people will come.

So why all of a sudden is Capcom worried about community feedback?

Its obvious there at a point where they don't know what to develop. I'd say develop some HD megaman games and work on more sequels/new IP for next gen consoles.

Why would I spend my time on that digital market survey? It's obvious that physical copies are much cheaper this Xmas...

Guess what I bought PS One Classic Driver 1 and 2 from a second-hand shop, i.e. 3 bucks each..while the PS Store is selling the first one with 16 bucks!! Eat that PS digital market! You can't compete with physical markets...Same apply to Capcom, if the company can't compete with EB, Game Exchange, or JB, or other game shops, Don't bother taking surveys!!!

*views open end questions*

QUICK EVERYONE SPAM MEGA MAN AS THE ANSWER.

oh and no disc locked content (or dlc locked dlc...), no outsourcing major games to obscure western devs, no outsourcing period, more localization, fairer price, more risk taking, no more treating your developers like shit, no more treating your ip's like shit, no remixed or sequels in a very short amount of time oh and no planning and working on dlc before the game is released just so you say it's not disc locked (or dlc locked....).

But like everything else capcom says I fully expect them to just swipe this under the rug.

How about this....how about we *bleep*ing keep some sort of consistency...since every obvious fault was already pointed out (like disc locked content...still doing this shit with RE6), and more localized games. And for the latter WHERE THE *bleep* IS MONSTER HUNTER??? And, if anyboddy answers 'Nintendo/Japan' I will personally ignore that btw.

Good for you. If the owner of this shop was a business man and not a tool he would have used the psn store as a listing price and charged listing + 25%. He missed out on a chunk of change.

I just want more of their stuff to come to PC, and especially for them to improve the timeliness and quality of their ports.

I'd really like it if Dragon's Dogma came to PC, esp. as a bundle with all the DLC (I don't care about most of the DLC, but it would be nice).

Too late to prevent the cancellation of Mega Man Legends 3.

"Do you want amazing DRM solutions that prevent you from playing your game offline as well as when online and the connection drops out for a second?"
-no

"Do you want dlc on the disc to be unlocked by buying codes online"
-no

"Do you want dlc to be full extra campaigns of a game, that then will very obviously be offered as part of a collector's edition, to be released 1 year after the original?"
-yes

"Do you want the game you buy to be a full game, rather than one that looks like large parts were cut out to be sold as dlc?"
-yes

There we go! Survey all done!

I like how Monster Hunter didn't even make the "is (_) one of your favorite franchises" part.

Heres a novel idea, don't blame your fans when a game gets canceled/localization falls through. How many times have they used "the fans didn't want it enough" as an excuse?

Simple: Don't cancel a megman game after asking the community to help pick the main characters.
