Based on the response to our coverage of Capcom's survey on digital distribution, a good number of you likely took the requisite time to fill the darn thing out. And you were hardly alone. Calling the breadth of feedback received "fantastic" in a forum post, Capcom senior VP Christian Svensson revealed that an impressive 60,000+ people responded.

He was smartly hesitant to remark about individual titles or series because sometimes plans don't work out as originally anticipated. "The data collected was very telling and in my opinion easily gives a prioritized list of things I think we should do (conveniently enough, many of them are things we've been pushing for for a while)," Svensson wrote. "My next task is to convince the gatekeepers in Japan with the data (which they have in their possession) and ensure what we're working on fits with the complete digital strategy for the company."

Keeping expectations in check, he continued: "Games of this sort take a couple months to greenlight and usually a year or more to make, so again, to set expectations, please don't expect any new news being driven from this survey in the short term. That said, we do have games already in development in this segment, some of which you'll hear about a bit later in the year."
