Publishers have always had the right to take down videos of their products. This is a sort of extension of that. LPs are held up by the games. Just commenting over it doesn't all of a sudden make it your work.
I'm not sure why some are invalidating the NPD numbers. They are pretty accurate and they do include Wal-Mart numbers now. Combine that with the data from the UK and Japan and this reboot has been a disaster from a sales perspective. Regardless about how you feel about this reboot, it's safe to say that Capcom probably won't make another DmC. Worst case scenario is dropping the franchise altogether. That's why this whole thing has been a lose-lose scenario. Well, that's not entirely true. At least something came out that was actually fun.
Made a thread about this over on the DmC board since, you know, it seemed like the place to do it. Anyway, word through the grapevine is it sold 187k on both consoles. That is not good no matter how you look at it. PC sales will remain a mystery unless Capcom feel the need to release them. However, even if it did well it would probably still not equal the performance of DMC4 on only 2 platforms. This is really a lose-lose situation that we're in considering Capcom's whole goal with this reboot was to dramatically boost sales. I'm not really sure what they'll end up doing with the franchise after this. As for Ninja Theory, this can't look good for them.
Capcom has done ZERO marketing for this game, they had to have known how it was going to sell.
That's a good point on its own. However, DMC4 didn't have much marketing either and managed to be the best selling game in the series. No matter what way you look at it, this isn't good for Ninja Theory as it's yet another game that has ostensibly flopped for them.
