@Waltz: If they'd chosen to place the blame firmly on the new features and whatnot they were packing into it, great! I'd totally be cool with them thinking their game alone is good enough to merit the price, it's whatev'. That's not what was said, however, and you can't go around wiping their butts for them and putting words into their mouths — you're not their PR guy! Until they either hire you or backtrack on their own, all we can go by is what they've said. Not you.

So games that came on a variety of DS card sizes smaller than 2GB sold for between $30-$40 and now you have a problem with 2GB - 4GB games charging between $40 - $50... you see where I have a problem with your logic there. Infact most regular DS game were lucky if they went over 32mb and Square Enix games topping it off around 256mb.

I remember original Game Boy games being in the $30 to $40 range as well, and they topped out at what, 8mb? it's not the size from generation to generation he's comparing, it's size for carts in the same generation.

@Tasuki: you're missing the point — don't go to your bank, they (as they've proven) don't have to do a damn thing for you. go to the credit card provider themselves — Visa, Mastercard, whomever — and make your case with them. you were the victim of credit card fraud, you should have stronger protection under their guidelines than your bank's.

also, in case you went to your bank because it was a checkcard — it doesn't matter if that money was taken from your bank account (as opposed to an actual line of credit). if the card was run as credit (which would be the case with any purchases made over the internet), you are under the umbrella of the credit card company whose logo graces your card.

screw your bank — if you used a card over the internet, even if it was a checkcard they still had to have ran it as credit, and as such you have protection via the credit card company it's linked to — Visa, Mastercard, whatever. Dispute the charges with the credit card company and get your money back that way.

i call it 'two thousand eleven'; no 'and' — it's a bit cumbersome IMO. 'twenty-eleven' would sound silly to me and would probably garner odd looks from co-workers/family/etc. and so forth. :3

It was poor wording on the spokesperson's part to imply it was just the physical size of the cartridge that was cause of the price increase.

True, but you can't go behind them trying to explain 'no, that's not what's really going on, this is why' when that's what they said, man. Until they backpedal, that statement is all we've got to go by, and idk — if i had been interested in this game, i'd probably be pretty ticked about it as it stands.

When you can buy a 4GB SD card for 2 dollars more than a 2GB one.

Because the only cost difference in developing a game for a 2GB card, compared to the 4GB card, is the cost of the memory chip.

Capcom Spokesperson wrote:

To handle all of that data Resident Evil Revelations requires a 4GB cartridge, resulting in a higher price point.

looks like that's what they're saying to me...? since they're attempting to blame it on the cart as opposed to just leaving it as the game being worth it, the point about SD cards is valid IMO.

@Mr_Reece: no, it's coming to 3DS — the announcement hit toward the end of September. so far as I know, we have no plans to review it, though, and we didn't cover the announcement, so that may be why you didn't hear about it.

@zdyoshikpl: i see you've found the Captain America review, but as I've said, we have no current plans to review Cars 2 for 3DS. sorry to disappoint, but hopefully Metacritic will provide eventually :3
whoops, fixed the link — thanks SimmerE5 :3
