Earlier in 2019 Capcom took Ducktales Remastered down from all digital platforms. This induced a surge in curiosity in acquiring the bodily version throughout platforms similar to eBay and Amazon. In an odd sequence of occasions, Amazon has relisted Ducktales Remastered, and at a extreme low cost. I do not know how lengthy this deal will final so seize it when you can – if in case you have an Xbox 360 (sorry PlayStation, Steam, and cellular avid gamers, your out on this one).
Gotta love digital
It was by no means actually defined why Ducktales Remastered was taken down within the first place. That leaves followers guessing as to the rationale. I for one suppose it was licensing. The time period of the contract merely ran out. Bodily copy contracts are often tied to a sure platform/variety of copies made after which are finished.
Digital leaves the door open to theoretically see gross sales eternally so there clearly have to be a time restrict launched. I imagine that is what occurred to power Capcom to take down Ducktales Remastered within the first place.
Which means a brand new license is in place
Fascinating that we’re seeing Ducktales Remastered make a return now. Much more curious, it is just on Amazon. Then solely on Xbox 360. Go forward, click on on this hyperlink to take a look at Ducktales Remastered on Amazon. It’s $three.75 for the digital model.
You will notice different choices accessible as properly, together with Nintendo Wii U and PlayStation three. The distinction is, these platforms solely supply the bodily version from third occasion sellers (many not eligible for Prime). You’ll discover these third occasion variations are a lot larger in worth as properly.
I’m wondering who paid the licensing to make this occur? Was it Capcom, in that case why not swing a deal for extra platforms which might enhance potential gross sales (I’d purchase it for PlayStation three myself simply to help it). I’m guessing there was a deal involving Amazon right here as they’re the one digital choice accessible (they haven’t any motive to share with the competitors).
Why only one platform?
We’re speaking a few sport that was accessible digitally on Steam (for PC’s), Xbox, PlayStation Community, Home windows Retailer (PC and cellular), iOS, and Android. I’ve already purchased digital copies on Home windows Retailer and Android, what’s yet one more within the identify of supporting a sport I like?
