I agree about the cover art. Wish all games had illustrations for cover art.

Smart moves, Doomstink.   I like the "less games, bigger titles" philosophy.  Glad to see you've still got your head screwed on straight!

Spoiler

This seems to be a smart decision based on upcoming competition.  Looking forward to how it actually plays out.

 

I started to appreciate what I saw in a video of Count Lucador, but the basic sprite work is just fugly - like old Atari fugly.  The game play and premise seem pretty cool though.

 

Hey Doomstink, why couldn't we get more than one Housemarque game on the same disc?  I would love a copy of Resogun, Nex Machina, and whatever else their "greatest hits" are supposed to be.  Pretty sure it'll fit on a single bluray.

As stated multiple times, there is a lot of development work that needs to be done to get multiple games onto a single disc. That new image then has to be submitted for approval by Sony. It’s not worth anyone’s time to do a single disc.

Currently playing:   :vita: DanganRonpa, :ps4: Uncharted Collection, :xb1: The Division

Recently platinumed: :ps4: Witcher 3 :vita: Tales of Hearts R :ps3: Tales of Xilla, Tales of Xillia 2,  :vita: Persona 4 Golden,  :vita: Steins;Gate, :vita: Odin Sphere

That isn't the official cover art. They're still working on it. Although I like it as well. Maybe ask them to have it be the reversible cover art?

Kondo-san is drawing the cover art for the fans so if you people really like the sketch art he made, we will happily let him know. We want the community to participate in our projects so maybe we will start a poll or go with reversible covers.

Oh and by the way, hello everyone! ^^

Hi Dennis, and welcome, I'm very much looking forward to this release, as well as future ones.

 

Be careful what you post around here, as you'll go from "Saint" to "Sinner" at the drop of a hat. Very tough crowd around here. LOL

Nex Machina was self-published by Housemarque - everything else was developed with the financial backing of Sony. I wouldn't rule those other games out, but they definitely wouldn't be sold in a compilation. Sony would need an adequate return to make it worth their time, and a compilation release would diminish the potential earnings per title for them.

I recommend contacting CheapyD (owner of this site) and ask him to make your account marked as a "retailer representative".

 

Also, I might be your worst nightmare considering that I'm going for a complete english ps4 and vita set lol.

So Cuphead is getting a physical release next Tuesday alongside the Xbox One X launch. It's just a code and and art cell in a box though.

Whoever had the idea to do this needs punched in the dick... Are you shitting me?! When they said a physical edition this had better not been it. Why even bother?!

They have confirmed on Twitter, that a physical collector's edition is coming at some point, but maybe that will be the same uh(physical items, along with a code)? LOL

I agree. Hate those "code-in-a-box" physical releases, really dumb idea. I never buy them, not worth it at all.

I guess if you were wanting the game anyways and needed a replacement case for a broken one, this would make sense. Otherwise, waste of plastic.

damn, I got all excited when I saw the pic. 

 

When a publisher chooses to do something like this with Cuphead, what are the chances that we see a physical release for the game down the line? I don't know who has the rights to it.  Perhaps we just have to wait for a Hong Kong/Korean version.

Given MS's print requirement there is almost no chance of a Asian only physical release.

There have been digital code in a box first and then a disc version before. Ducktales Remastered was like for PS3. Am I forgetting anything else?

That is correct. I didnt bother with the digital code version and waited.....and waited..... and finally a real physical version of Ducktales was released which i then bought.

 

As you might have guessed, I will be waiting for a real physical game for CupHead

Yea I don't see the point in investing in an empty case with a download slip.  I will wait for the physical edition because that seems like an inevitability. 

 

Also, companies need to stop doing this.   Their customers and fans spoke loudly back in '13.  They know better.

Xbox One disc pressing requirements are unreasonably high - even for Cuphead. I always find it funny when people accuse us of shafting the Xbox because we can't press "real" quantities. No, we can't press unreasonable quantities that won't sell. If Cuphead can't do it - no one can!

Marvel vs. Capcom 2 on PS3.

I agree. The only way I am ever going to buy Cuphead is 1 of 2 options:

Legit physical for up to $30

Digital for $4.99 or less

 

Hard to say if they will make a legit physical version. I remember this being done with both Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light (which never got a disc release) and Ducktales Remastered (which did eventually get legit disc versions)

Ruiner from SRG cancelled.

 

I'm curious as to what the specific issue was... like why are the LRG releases reasonable to do with ESRB but Ruiner isn't.

Presumably Microsoft themselves could do a print smaller than what they require from everyone else but they probably don't want to risk it with poor sales of Ori last year.
