They wouldn't give this game a chance because they hate the way Dante looks. When I asked them about the gameplay they told me that they stopped paying attention after seeing Dante's new haircut. They didn't even really notice the game came out.
One of these guys was my older brother. I showed him a bit of the game, he said the game looks solid but he refused to play it still because he hated how the character looks. Than I showed him the classic Dante DLC and he suddenly changed his mind.
Now it's only two people out of the dozens I know. But this leads me to believe the hair IS the sole reason for hating this game for some people.

When coincidence is so convenient, I prefer to call it fate.
so you are saying that hair color is responsible for the lack of sales of a game?! that's absurd. if that really was the case, then Capcom an NT are bigger fools than i thought with no market research abilities. all they have to do is changed the hair color and they can boost the sales.
