Capcom's Devil May Cry 4 on PC "getting pirated to hell and back"

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," posted Svensson 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 reviewed Devil May Cry 4 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?

I played the demo, and liked it. I\'m waiting for the prices to get a bit low, then I\'m getting it!:D Hell Yeah! The graphics on the PC version look far more advanced than the console g\'s... And, yeah there are some tweaks available for download at some gamer sites...

It\'s the price that is the sticking point Capcom...stop being greedy and PC gamers will legitimately buy it. There is a recession on you know...
