They outright said they'd use this to help them decide where to take Mega Man although that seems vague and confusing. Like what if I want more games similar to the Battle Network or Star Force series. How will downloading this tell them that?
I also heard a somewhat worrying statement from some of the Capcom guys when they were showing off SFxMM where they said something along the lines of there possibly being more SFxMM games if this is popular enough. So if this is crazy popular, I hope that SFxMM2 isn't all we get out of it.
Personally I'd love something either new, or with a bigger budget. 8-bit is great and all, but the fans have been doing a fine job making new/newish 8-bit Mega Man games so it's not like we're desperately searching for more content like that.
