Capcom obviously weighed up that it wouldn’t eat into Arcade Stadium sales as a one-off. It still amazes me how guarded these companies are with the license agreements for older games. I'd wager that the vast majority of the Evercade audience have access to most of these games and the means to play them outside of their Evercade purchase. The more difficult they make it for gamers to legitimately play these games, the more they risk seeing declining support for the platforms which host them. These companies should be enormously grateful to Evercade and others for opening up fresh revenue streams for catalogue games, not constantly trying to trip them up with punitive licensing restrictions. 5 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
