I really don't understand why everyone is complaining about this. We all know Gamestop will have a Power Trade promo for this game. Probably like "Trades towards UMvC3, Batman: Arkham City, and CoD Modern Warfare 3 and get an extra 25% trade-in credit towards pre-order or purchase of a brand new copy," simple as that. So stop your ***chin'.
the whole point to the argument, is not the pricing of the game or how many dlc characters we should get. it the principal behind the whole situation. people are just upset that they brought the game already in now at the end of the year there is a new updated one coming out that it. so whether or not you save money from buying the new one over dlc doesn't matter. people are mad that they gotta buy two copy of basically the same game
$40 is full price? Full price for a brand new console game is $60, so get your information right in the first place. If they had released all this as dlc it would cost you around $65-70, so you are saving $25-30. Take a moment to do a little math ($5 a dlc char is the going rate for non-blazblue fighting game chars, blazblue is around $8 ) and realize they are saving you money with this, just like you SAVED money with super street fighter 4 content. Frankly, it would probably make capcom MORE money if they did it in short spurts of dlc (1-2 chars at a time, but two month intervals or more between releases) and most people would be less angry, but I for one am happy to SAVE money, unlike the rest of the complainers. As for the I hope they don't do an ultimate mvc3 turbo mega hyper etc dumb comments. If they do an arcade edition like with ssf4:ae it will be dlc and still cost less money than OTHER fighting game dlc cost. Arcade edition saved you $5 and was dlc. It was on disc for people who didn't own ssf4 (like pc users, where it never existed) and if you went from original sf4 to sf4:ae you got 14 new chars with an extra ultra for every body for $40, a hell of a deal. As for the people who complain about the choice of characters, just because you only like 5 or 7 of them doesn't mean other people don't love 10-12. It is like rock band or guitar hero, they do a general cast that spreads out for different people, not all one genre. My real beef with capcom comes from their refusal to release monster hunter portable 3rd (or preferably, the ps3 hd version coming out soon) in English, not them saving me money by selling a new game instead of dlc (which you can't buy dlc used for all of the cheap people who think buying used is a great idea).
Capcom is starting to really piss me off! In less then a year they come out with a second version of the game with a few characters more for full price like what they did to Street Fighter IV. They even cancel Megaman Legend 3!
While many people are pissed about this...it isn't as bad as say...street fighter 4...even though for me I just got lucky trading in my sf4 long ago then about a year later buying a ps3 and having ssf4 come out and just getting that...this is a more popular title and the add ons are more than in super streetfighter 4. It's just a way for them to keep the dough rolling and hey it is working, we will see how far they go with it though...the rest from here should be only dlc not ultimate mvc3 turbo edition...
those guys on the panel looks like a-holes especially the translator. well capcom sucks since they started doing the super/ultra crap. you know there will be another version of this game anyway. the only thing they needed to do was to add dlc and patches to the game. how are they listening to fans when they're making a new one again and again. this game shouldn't even be called ultimate marvel vs capcom it should be ultimate spam vs spam.
I'm keeping my MVC3. I knew they were going to do this so it doesn't really bother me but I understand why everyone are upset. I totally agree with them. But its not worth buying UCVM3 if it doesn't have certain characters I want in it.
Capcom being Capcom decides to screw us all over and make us buy the game again. I think I'll wait to buy this game used, that way Capcom won't get any of my money.
I've played MvC3 a LOT and I paid $60 (More like $40 since I traded some games I never played in my life towards a preorder) and I know the amount of time I put in towards the game justified the price. Now I'll just trade MVC3 towards a preorder on UMVC3 and get it for cheaper and probably play the hell out of that game too. (Phoenix Wright FTW). I'm not complaining. I'm feeling pretty good.
I'll probably buy it, but I still think this is very bad Customer Relationship Management by Capcom. I bought my copy of MVC3 used for £17 about a two months ago, but I would be really pissed off if I'd paid full price on day of release, only for Capcom to release MVC3 "how it should have been in the first place" later the same year.
And to further respond to the concept of angry because people who waited got it for less. That is how every damn game works. If you really want to save a lot of money wait even longer and buy the game used so you can save even more money and show off how much money you didn't spend compared to what I will have spent on both versions new day 1. Recently during the steam summer sale I purchased four copies of borderlands goty for $20. Four. If I bought those games when they came out it would have cost me $200 + whatever the price of the dlc was when it was new (I honestly don't know it). And if you wanna tell me it woulda only been 200 as there was a goty edition, I clearly mean buying borderlands day 1, then buying each dlc as it was released. Currently on steam each dlc is $9.99. So lets assume that was the price. I purchased 4 copies of each dlc (4x10 = 40 x 4 = $160) and 4 copies of the game (4 x 50 = 200) for $20. I saved $340. So why don't you complain that gearbox should have known they were gonna make 4 dlcs and be so cheap and sold the game originally for $20 for 4 copies?. Because that's idiotic, that's why. So is that argument about capcom. I played mvc3 far more than enough to justify the price, most people complaining probably did too.
I bought the game for $70 as I got the limited edition and I don't give a damn. The argument "they knew they were gonna make this" is a dumb one. If you believe you are getting ripped off for buying it new day one, like I did, then you must get mad at buying a sequel to any game ever. clearly they could have made resident evil 2 in the same package as resident evil 1 (because they could have given you 3 CDs instead of 1) so why did I have to buy both RE 1 + RE 2? You could easily argue they are the same game with more content (same graphics, same physics, zombies are just as dumb, same basic weapons, different skins). Give me a break, that's just petty. If you see most people's complaints its "why isn't this dlc" which is why I spent that post pointing out it is CHEAPER than dlc, and then your argument turns to "why isn't it here in the first place". Stick to one argument. They gave you plenty of content, I bought Blazblue day one so I paid a premium on dollar per character as that game has a truly low amount of characters total, THEN I paid for the second game day one as well because I wanted more content, and THAT game had like 2 extra characters, now if you want to complain and get angry, complain about blazblue (their dlc chars are also like $8 instead of $5).
Yeah Strider! So who are the fans who wanted Firebrand, Vergil, Frank West, Phoenix Wright Rocket Raccoon, Hawkeye and Iron Fist? So I pay 40 dollars for what 5 fighters that aren't lame? SO when did MVC turn into Super Buster Bros? The roster gets worse and worse.
the reason for people hating on Capcom is for the simple fact that, they paid 60 dollars for a game that is being upgraded a couple months later with more characters, stages, and better game play. I myself is upset because i brought the game when it came out to find out that another one is coming out later that cheaper and better. come on now you have to give me a little respect for being some what mad. you cant tell me capcom couldn't have added this in the first game from the jump. they knew they were going to make everyone buy a second copy of the game. To all the people who say Capcom is right, then you have problem yourself. If Capcom wants me to get this new version, then send me a free one since i brought the other one already then I will be cool and shut up lol
@chemdm That would make sense if not for the fact that if someone has already bought this game they will still spend more than I who waited because I already saw all of this coming...
Good Gravy Alice why did they not just start off from the panel and not even show that video omitted...LOL
@chemdm Thank you thats what I came here to say Capcom listended to you fans by adding Phoenix Wright,Vergil,Ghost Rider, Strider, and Frank West dont go whineing cuz "NO VENOM,NO MEGAMAN,NO GAMBIT"If they add those characters theyd be ripping you off by just giving MVC2 chars and they are saving 20 thru 30 bucks so stop saying "money grubbers" or "picking our pockets" and especially "Super Duper(which isnt even a word) Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 Turbo Max Arcade Edition.Do some thinking before u go talking mess, oh yeah and with Rocket Raccon u never know he be a really good character like how everybody was hating on Firebrand but after seeing gameplay he looks like a cool character.
Considering 1 dlc fighter goes for $5, you are getting 12 for $40 (14 if you didn't buy jill and shuma). If they released it as dlc, it would come out one or two at a time for $5 a pop and cost you a total of $60 for those new characters, THEN an extra $5-10 for the 8 extra stages. Let's go with a cheap (though considering virtually all dlc for any game is extremely overpriced I'd expect $10) $5, so you can buy all 12 chars and 8 stages for $65 as dlc. The other option, you could buy a brand new, physical copy, for $40. But let's hate capcom for giving you more content for less than they easily COULD offer (and would actually get away with since people apparently would rather pay 12 chars as dlc instead of on disc). And to continue the history of these complaints being incredibly stupid, lets look at super street fighter 4 vs street fighter 4. 10 new characters ($50 dlc), a new ultra for EVERY characters. So paying $40 once again SAVES you money. Then there is super street fighter 4: arcade edition, which was only made on disc for people who didn't buy ssf4 (such as PC users as ssf4 did not exist on pc), because they gave us 4 characters for $15 as dlc, saving us $5. Capcom's recent history may seem annoying to people who don't actually think about the price and what they get, or perhaps all the haters would rather pay extra to just not go to the store and pick up a copy? Though the internet solves that problem too so I don't see the logic behind any one hating.
i buyed marvel vs capcom 3, the xtra characters dlc and costume pack. it's time to put an end to this kind of scam. i wont buy any new capcom game again. but i still will copy anything of you capcom. i'm not not your peon or your cow to milk. end of transmission.
i think capcom out of strategic to sell their game........why more fighting game.capcom should make the old sequel such as onimusha , chaos legion .come on capcom wake up.............
so lame, so if i bought mvc3, now i have to buy it again almost for the same price to get more characters, wtf is wrong, why just dont do more DLC and stop making full games.. after releasing it.
50 characters in total that is overwhelming! it will take a long time to experiment each character/team :D I can't wait!!
Why it's true? MVC3 is still 59.99 and they are releasing another one its' not even a xpack but the whole game. Why is Capcom competing against themself, won't this hurt their profits? "Hey UMVC3 is coming out soon why should I buy MVC3 for $59.99 now?" There needs to be more competiters in the fighting game genre so Capcom can't sale half finished repolished games again and again. Dear Capcom please make a Puzzle Fighter 3
You know what i am sick of? all of you guys saying super duber ultra ultimate blah blah blah. Do u have any idea how old thats getting for every other fu**** comment i see deals with saying that they r gonna make and uber ultra version of this game in a few months...JUST STOP >___>
It really shows that if there able to put all that data in one disk then there was no reason for them not to of put this stuff in the original mvsc3. Those money hungry motherfuc^&ers!!!
I paid 60 bucks the first day this game came out Please tell me this will be avalible as DLC. I would hate to have to pay an additional 45 bucks
What about the people who already own Marvel vs Capcom 3 will this updated version be avalible as DLC? Or will I have to purchase another copy?
