DMC 4 Petition Online, Capcom Responds

The uproar over Capcom turning Devil May Cry 4 into a multiplatform title has been...well, loud. The official Capcom forums suffered the brunt of the outrage, of course, and after fans found out the game would also be available on the Xbox 360, they formed a petition. The petition states that the "undersigned" would be boycotting all Capcom's products - not just DMC 4 - until the decision was reversed and the anticipated action title is once again a PS3 exclusive.

In the topic entitled, "What are you thinking, Capcom?" in the forums, the senior director of strategic planning and research, Christian Svensson, replied with the following:

"We are certainly moved that people are so passionate about our products that they would go to such extremes. At the same time we feel that allowing more people access to our content pleases far more people than it displeases (after all, we're not denying DMC4 to anyone that was already going to get it). It really is the best decision for the company and for consumers."

The man has a point, but that likely won't halt the petition. You can find it at the Petition Online Web Site, and states that fans feel "very left out of the decision," and that the move is "absolutely demoralizing for not only the gamers, but also Sony itself." As of right now, the petition is closing in on 8,000 signatures (7,965), so plenty of people aren't happy with the current DMC situation.

Well, while it's highly unlikely the decision to go multi with DMC 4 will be reversed, it's good to see so many gamers so passionate about certain topics.
