Capcom surveying fans about digital games

Publisher asking gamers what they think company should be doing in the digital space, cautions that nothing is guaranteed.


Capcom is asking fans to weigh in on where they believe the publisher should be heading in the digital space. Capcom senior vice president Christian Svensson explained through the Capcom-Unity blog that the publisher has its own ideas as to its digital future, but also wants to hear from fans.

The Capcom survey includes questions regarding the publisher's most iconic franchises including Bionic Commando, Street Fighter, Mega Man, and Okami. It asks if gamers would be interested in straight ports of classic titles, high-definition remakes, franchise reboots, franchise extensions, and entirely new game universes.

The survey also asks what price point is most attractive to gamers for future digital games, scaling from $10 to $40.

Svensson cautioned that the results of the survey are in no way a guarantee of future products, but said the data will be a factor in Capcom's decision process moving forward. Svensson will share the compiled data after the holidays with teams in Japan, he said.
