Capcom responds to PS3 fanboys

DMC4 stokes Internet rage.

Capcom has officially responded to allegations that it was "turning its back" on Sony by denying PS3 an exclusive in Devil May Cry 4.

Senior director of strategic planning and research for the game giant, Christian Svensson, insisted making the title as widely available as possible was the best decision for Capcom.

"We are certainly moved that people are so passionate about our products that they would go to such extremes," Svensson responded on the Capcom forums. "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."

Outrage erupted after Capcom announced it would be bringing DMC4 to Xbox 360 and PC just a few days before the PlayStation 3 launch in Europe.

The move scores Microsoft another exclusive-pinching point, famously joining Grand Theft Auto IV and Pro Evolution Soccer on the Xbox 360.

DMC4 will launch on both consoles simultaneously, with the PC version expected a little later. A release date is yet to be confirmed.
