Capcom announces unreplayable game

*dangles flamebait for StarBound...*
Slashdot wrote:Resident Evil: Mercenaries 3D for the Nintendo 3DS will be an experience that can be completed once per customer. Using a single, unwipable save slot Capcom ensures that a second hand customer gets a second rate experience. If you buy this game used, you will be stuck with the previous owner's progress, unable to start the game fresh.

Is it me or is Capcom doing everything in its power to lose money? :? Who is going to be a crippled game like this? What happens when your 3DS gets farked so you a buy a new one only to find you cant replay your own friggin game?

/makes note remove Capcom from watch list for any and all PC games...

Well mercenaries wasnt exactly one of the games that I thought about when I bought that thing. I was more along the lines of Zelda, Starfox 64 and the new mario. Also I got it because we are planning to go to europe later this year and I will be damned if I do nothing for 14 hours.

It could actually work if they also priced the games lower...

A surprising amount of modern pseudoscience is coming out of the environmental sector. Perhaps it should not be so surprising given that environmentalism is political rather than scientific.

Well I suppose it is saved on the medium so if they do it as a special like with the $3 steam games then I won't say no to the game. But if they price it full price and then decide to slap the save onto DS flash card I would royaly be pissed off. Infact I'd bill them for an SSD telling them they made it unformatable and it was my drive ...MYSPACE! If they want to keep that data in a cloud somewhere its fine with me. ...but if I then want to recover it and it isnt there then fur will fly either way.

...the customer is always right :mrgreen:

Now they have an excuse to produce lousy tities. The difference is that unreplayable is no longer a choice. :lol:
