Heartbroken and no doubt frightened by the loss of yet another exclusive PS3 title, some Sony fanboys have taken it upon themselves to start a petition asking people to boycott Capcom to express their outrage. Let's see what they have to say:

We (The people that have signed this petition) feel very left out in your decision to make Devil May Cry 4 a Multi-Platform title, and hereby agree to boycott your sale of Capcom affiliated games. This is due to your decision to turn your back on your most faithful gaming company. For years we have enjoyed games, we have reaped the benefits of your committment to Sony. We find it absolutely demoralizing for not only the gamers, but also Sony itself. We want you to know that will not, and should not stand for your actions, and therefore withold our option of buying your product.

Bad grammar aside, isn't it kind of silly to get so upset about losing exclusivity of a game that you'd boycott the very game that you apparently care so much about? It's not as if they wouldn't still get to play it. Get to the choppa!

[Update: Capcom's Christian Svensson has issued an official response to angry fans, stating: 

"We are certainly moved that people are so passionate about our products that they would go to such extremes, at the same time we feel that allowing more people access to our content pleases far more people than it displeases (after all, we're not denying DMC4 to anyone that was already going to get it). It really is the best decision for the company and for consumers."

Put away your pitchforks, kids. Capcom still loves you.]
