Uh oh, sounds like somebody brewed up a PR nightmare. Yesterday, we ran a story on Capcom's Antoine Seux, who said that hardcore gamers had essentially abandoned the Wii and that the future of Capcom was in the PS3 and Xbox 360. The obvious sh*tstorm this caused was noticed by the rest of Capcom Europe, who are now scrambling for a U-turn.
"Further to comments made in a recent article on French website Gamekult, Capcom would like to confirm its commitment as a multi-platform developer and publisher of interactive software," states the publisher, with perfect diplomacy.
One can imagine that Seux was none too popular when he got into the office this morning. Still, regardless of how much trouble Seux may have gotten into, his comments regarding the poor performance of key titles still holds true. Like it or not, the Wii's reputation as a shovelware platform will be hard to shake, and that's nobody's fault ... except for all the arseholes who refuses to buy MadWorld.
