Capcom's Dreamcast Plans
Just ask yourself, "What would Capcom do?" Then read. - by Mr. Domino

E<SUP>3</SUP> Logo

If there has been one third-party who has continued to give Dreamcast owners a reason to keep playing, it's Capcom. The company has continued to release a steady flow of good games even after Sega's March bomb. From Gunbird 2 to Mars Matrix and Project Justice, Capcom has been keeping Dreamcasts warm all over this year with quality arcade software.

"Capcom will continue to supply the system with games as long as people are there to buy them," Melinda Mongelluzzo, Capcom's Director Public Relations, said. Right now Capcom's games are still performing well on the Dreamcast, and as long as they continue to sell well, the company will continue to support the system, she said.

While that sounds great and all, there is a good chance that Heavy Metal Geomatrix will be the last Capcom game on Dreamcast. Capcom has had to drop the prices of its Dreamcast lineup to help bolster sales of its software, and while we all love $19.95 Capcom games, it's not a good thing. The company is only lowering Dreamcast prices across the board since owners of the system may be weary of purchasing full price games for a "dead" system.

So, while Heavy Metal will "probably" be the last Dreamcast game, Mongelluzzo made it clear it wasn't set in stone. If the game sells well, we may be lucky to get another game or two. Cross your fingers (and keeping buying Capcom games!). I will just because I cling to the hope that Capcom vs. SNK 2 will actually appear.
