Capcom just seem so stupid and greedy recently. I would've bought Mega Man Legends 3, but now I won't be buying anything.

People that like MvC3 may be superstoked or bummed out that they have to buy another game. I'm just gonna say my piece, I'm disappointed in Capcom as a whole right now.

Don't fall for it. Buy the third release when it comes out in February 2012. Or maybe wait for the fourth release in June.

Oh Capcom, why do you sully your name this way.  Oh well, makes me glad I never bothered picking up MvC3 when it first came out, unfortunately also encourages me to not buy this version either, lest I give them the impression that they should keep up this kind of behavior.  Then again, maybe it will actually get released as DLC as well.  If that happens, I would at least feel considerably less dirty about this decision of theirs.  If it is a stand alone game, the way SSF4 was though... forget it.

I don't own MvC3 but this can seem like both a good thing or a bad thing. What's good is that it might be cheaper than buying the characters as DLC. How much were they charging for Jill and Shuma? Like around 5 bucks right? That's like an extra 50 bucks for the characters if they were to release them as individual DLC. And what's bad... well Capcom obviously had built MvC3 to support DLC, but then decided to not use it.

This better be available in cheap(er) DLC form.

This has to be DLC as well. I can buy their excuse that they didn't have the hooks for substantial DLC in SFIV, but that excuse only works for one game. If it is not DLC, then this disc should be $20 tops.

It hasn't even been 6 months yet.
 
This is just too stupid. This could've easily been DLC. But no, they're gonna charge you 40 bucks for it. This is absolutely appalling.

This isn't really a recent tactic for Capcom, this is just kind of what Capcom have always done. People are more than welcome to complain about these sort of releases, but I'm sick of people talking like it's a new development for the studio when they've basically been doing it since the beginning of time.

UMvC3 sounds great, it really does, and I'll probably buy it like a sucker, I feel really stupid for having bought MvC3, though - I managed to avoid purchasing SFIV in favour of Super, I really should have done the same for Marvel.

Wait... What the fuck? Didn't Marvel vs. Cpacom 3 get released THIS YEAR? And now they're already releasing a fucking revision... in NOVEMBER? God dammit Capcom.

Sadly, I think it'll probably do pretty well. Idiots like me will buy it day 1, after all. But I'll definitely abandon ship if they pull an SSFIVAE move.

The re-release is too soon and it makes me laugh they have to make another game to add spectator mode. Sadly, I will be buying this. Enjoyed the first MvC3.

I really dont think this is too soon.

The game needed some serious updates, with some huge tweaks to correct the gameplay and additionel content and characters never hurt. Also its coming out as DLC so stop bitching.

THAT BEING SAID HAWKEYE AND FIREBRAND ARE TERRIBLE CHARACTERS, THEY BETTER NOT TAKE VERGILS SPOT GOD HELP YOU CAPCOM IF YOU DONT PUT VERGIL IN THIS.

This really should say "12 NEW CHARACTERS - 8 NEW STAGES - ONLY $99.98. 
 
AND HEY, PRE-ORDER NOW AND WE'LL THROW IN SOME TIGHT CLOTHES FOR FOUR FEMALE CHARACTERS." 
 
But... is this being released as DLC?

I'm super excited. At their current DLC rates, 12 new characters alone would be $60. Y'all people seem to have an over inflated sense of entitlement.

Woo UMvC3!

Everyone always seems to forget this, not to mention the different stages and overall game improvements you get with this.

Remember how everyone always bitches that in the old days we would get expansions instead of DLC? Well here.

It just seems a little bit too big and that giant flashing red "X" seems really intrusive. Also, having the point character in the center of the life bars instead of the top just looks weird.

The only way I'll buy this is if the rest of the characters they announce are fuckin' awesome. The first four they announced weren't bad but I want M. Bision and Green Goblin!

I'm happy because I never bought the original, so now the cheap more full version is coming out... great.

True, but we both know that's not why people are mad.

Wait what the hell, did't megaman and venom win that "Which character should be put in" poll?

if the leaked pictures are indeed true (and theya re from the capcom site), no Megaman again is fucking HILARIOUS. No Cyke, Venom, Gambit either, guess popularity isnt important. but hey, Rocket Racoon... lol.

So they're not even waiting a year? And x-factoring in the air only helps Phoenix, which is the last thing we need.

At least they're only charging $39.99. But the "balance" changes are the make or break point for me in terms of a sale.

If MVC3 sees the same balance and release cycle as SSF4 then this version will be the best of the three.

It better come out as DLC (the download version being cheaper than the disc version) as well and not only disc. That's all I'm saying.
