The recent release DMC4 on PC is rather popular it seems but sadly not at the cash register as much as they'd like. It splashed in pirate waters at release.
Capcom's Christian Svensson said he pushed "for digital distribution on the title" but HQ rejected the idea. The PC version can be visually superior to its console counterparts.
"I'm not sure about how Capcom in general feels but It's not doing as well as I would like in the US at retail," on Capcom-Unity.com. "It's such a good version and it really deserves better sales. I know it's getting pirated to hell and back (it was up on torrents literally the day it shipped)."
"I certainly have pushed for digital distribution on the title (globally, I'm responsible for all DD deals) but Capcom Japan so far has not allowed it."
The future could well bode digital for Capcom's releases especially if Svensson has anything to do with it.
We recently for PC and found it "sprinkles in some more of the demonic mayhem with the chance for PC users to crank up the gears with even better graphics." Does it deliver to a PC audience though?
