Stumbled upon this thread for Operation Rainfall.http://oprainfall.freeforums.org/helpful-advice-from-atlus-t10.html
In this they get a quote from an Atlus asking for help. The person responds back with EXACTLY what I've been saying all along whenever a game company makes a decision that the fans get angry about and claim "They dont know what they are doing!!!"
Here is an excerpt: "If you want my honest opinion, there is not much a fan can do besides shell out the money for the product if it does come around. There are so many factors that fans do not consider when it comes to what gives a company reason to go ahead and localize a game or not. Sales projections might be bad, the cost to license the game might be too high, the release window for the game is sub-optimal, etc. "
There is so much to the business of video games that I know I dont know understand, and know that those who get so angry on the internet DEFINITELY don't understand.
Don't get me wrong, I would LOVE to see these games in the US, and I'd LOVE to get MML3 released, and would LOVE to have had UMvC3 be DLC, and have Mega Man in it....but since I dont know the numbers and business, instead of being angry and pretentious thinking I have all the answers, I'll just stop at disappointment and move about my day.
