The idiocy behind the sentiment that not buying DmC will force Capcom to take the series back to its roots is unbelievable. Capcom will see it like any normal business would. They'll see the sales numbers and think "Hm, guess they don't want Devil May Cry at all. Oh well, let's move on!"
People bout the HD collection instead so I don't think that's completely true.
"On and On the road does go, down into the depths below" "Off you went to call the King, you wish to hear the Devil sing."
