That's just the thing. There's no such thing as ours and yours when it comes to a franchise.
Do you honestly think that Capcom would even consider to continue to make two completely separate DMC franchise? One catering to an old fanbase and one catering to a new audience.
One will die and the other will move forward and it looks like they've already made their decision as to which one to move forward with since they're making a movie based on DmC and also full on supporting it.
That statement that Capcom employee made is pretty clear as day to where they're taking the DMC franchise. He's just not going to say it outright to jeopardize DmC sells. Just as long as you got hope, there's a good chance to use that hope (like delivering a half ass DMC HD collection to a bunch of hopeful raging fans) and turning a profit off of it.
So why bother to change the name when this is the only DMC game that you're going to get.
This hurts my soul. Why the hell would you make a movie on a game that has the player based split? It would be financially smarter to sit and see what profits come in, before getting so arrogant as to try and maximize profits on a game that could potentially sink.
Also, They and Ours is pretty accurate. Right now it's Ninja Theory's Game and Capcom's DMC.
It goes to what I was saying that it's pretty obvious that Capcom has already made their decision as to which version they're moving forward with.

Until it doesn't bring in the sales they want. There's literally no way it'll break 2 million.

For people thinking that if this game was a standalone IP and wouldn't do better, it wouldn't not because of it didn't have the DMC name tagged on as part of the franchise, but because CAPCOM utterly sucks at developing and growing new IPs. Besides the new DD franchise and a few other titles, what other new IPs they have developed into a potential franchise since 2008? None. Capcom airs out their grievances when it comes to potential sales in some of their titles when a big part of its failure is lack of proper marketing. And this DmC as a standalone would've been faulted with its lack of exposure and sales due to the publisher (Capcom) being totally inept.

Sure buddy sure.
Matter of fact didn't you say that you weren't going to play the demo due to lack of space on your hard drive? Judging from all your posting about how the demo sucking, you did.
Sure buddy sure.
I gave it a chance, like an adult. It was an okay action game, but a terrible DMC game. I needed room anyway for a different demo, but I thought "I might as well try it so people will stop saying 'YOU NEVER PLAYED IT YOU CAN'T SAY ANYTHING ABOUT IT'." I played it twice, once on Nephelim then on SoS. Once I was sure it was bad, I deleted it and downloaded a fantastic new demo of Ni no Kuni.
So yeah, I decided to be mature and play it before I judged it further. Now that I've played it, I can say it didn't meet the expectations of a DMC game imo.
And with simple math, it's clear it won't reach 2 mil. Now of course, it's conjecture, but I think my estimate of 1.5 mil maximum is accurate.

To be fair, no one has unlimited patience, and at times this board could come close flustering the Buddha.-geekneck99

Now all of a sudden, you need room now...riiiight. Also now you're trying to blame others for your actions. Hell you've been judging the game without even playing it for years now....lol.
Just goes to saying that any person that feels the need to tell a bunch of strangers on the net what they're not going to do, you should just think the opposite of that.
This guy or girl is a prime example of that.

Shatter, I'm sorry to say, but you're sounding like a tool. Most people form opinions based on first impressions, and I've been in those situations where I put something off, untill I needed to make room for something else. It's what I did. I didn't play DMC right off, untill Ineeded to make room for Mass Effect 2 to install on my system to play. (I deleted it, and got the urge to play it again.)
Most of these arguements on the board consist of people who have opinions, and then people saying those opinions are wrong.
