They didn't advertise it. It's not our obligation to know that it exists.

That's true but a good new ip doesn't need advertising if it was truly a quality game. Reviewers gave it glowing reviews, isn't that enough to sell a game?


it's evidently not
advertisement nowadays is just as important - if not more so - than actual quality. Mario 64 would have bombed too if no one knew it existed

Actually that's probably a bad example. Mario was a launch title for the 64, as well as it being mario...

if no one knew the game existed, even Mario wouldn't have sold
fine, it's a launch title

this is true for EVERY game that isn't a launch title, pretty much. if they don't advertise it, it doesn't sell
let's say they didn't give us any news on Zelda Skyward sword yet. it was never shown on any cons, no news were given out, no dev statements - the first time you hear about it is from the reviewers 1 week before launch
it wouldn't sell worth **** despite being Zelda

Bottomline: Capcom F-ed up bigtime with Okami and they deserve hate and hell for it

Uh, yeah, it does. No matter how you spin it, Okami failed ONLY because of Capcom.

How are you stupid for not releasing a game that will most likely (they have people doing research on this) lose you money?

There is a reason why Capcom is still one of the most profitable publishers/developers from Japan, they only take calculated risks now.

The only "stupid" is Nintendo pricing the 3DS so high just to make more money, it backfired and now people are pulling away from it
