    well the bit about sales figures is true, the more a game sells the more sony would have to pay capcom to keep a game exclusive to ps3

    so 700,000 x $25 (the profit they make off each game) = 17.5m dollars i dont think sony can just give capcom that much money..

    it seems to me that dead rising and lost planet are the tests for the 360 from capcom, they have developed both of these games with the westerm market in mind and its definitely paid off for dead rising

    i had an interesting conversation with someone on the other side of the fence ie a developer about exclusive titles and he basically said they obviously 1st parties will always be exclusive but less and pess 3rd party devs will stay exclusive as its just costing then so much to develop the things and they need to maximise their returns on investment

    If the XBox 360 got Devil May Cry then that will be a huge hit to the Playstation..... I like it :D

    the downside to a online demo of course is if the game sucks....lol

    then no one buys it..heh

    i do wish they wouldnt restrict games to platforms tho.....ok some people will have all the platforms to be completist, but some like me really have enough other things plugged in to my electrical supply and would rather just have a PC and a console, perhaps 2 at the most.....having to buy all 3 just to get every game just isnt worth the money to me.....given the 360 and PS3 pretty much run side by side in ability then i'd rather just own one or the other....(well, neither if i hadnt got a hefty discount on my 360....lol)

    Personally I think the more games that are restricted to one console, the better... mainly because this means that they utilise the console's architecture... games released on multiple formats are more generic and as such miss on on some of the advantages coding for a specific console from the ground up can bring...

    "Devil May Cry 4 and a version of Monster Hunter are two Capcom titles that have only been announced for PS3. "

    I read that as DMC and MH are the only games announced so far, but that quote means just for PS3 (exclusive). Silly me.

    I'd selfishly like more exclusive titles for each platform as it gives me an excuse to buy both (unique titles for the Wii mean it's fairly essential anyway in my view). If all my friends are on '360, I'll focus on that most likely.
