A number of disgruntled gamers have called on US president Barack Obama to pull DmC: Devil May Cry from retailers, purely based on the fact that it’s different from previous series instalments. You can read the petition over at: Petitions.Whitehouse.gov.
The petition in question calls on President Obama to remove Capcom’s latest emo-’em-up on grounds that it “violates the rights of consumers”.
“Dear Mr. Obama: As a consumer to the Video Game Industry there is one Video Game that has caused a lot of controversy over the past few month’s,” the post reads.
“The name of the game is DmC: Devil May Cry made by Ninja Theory and Capcom. A majority of gamer’s are aggravated that this game has changed so much from it’s past predecessors and the game actually insults the consumers in-game.
We, as consumers did not want nor need this reboot and we believe it violates our rights to have a choice between the original’s or the reboot. This game is violating our rights as a consumer and we believe it should be pulled off shelves from game stores due to it’s insulting nature and the fact that it violates our rights.
Please Mr. Obama, look into your heart and make the decision that will please us Gamers.”
As of writing, the petition has been signed by some 47 gamers, leaving only 99,953 signatures to go.
