Sven follows up on Tatsunoko vs. Capcom's sales numbers on the Wii Capcom's Christian Svensson offered a bit more information on how well Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars has been selling on the Wii.

This has interested a lot of fans because the game's producer said that the company would be making another Vs. game, if TvC's sales were really good.

Svensson also discussed PC sales and making retail copies of their download only games.
You said you're cautiously optimistic that TvC is going to have long legs from a sales perspective. Can you give the fans an idea of how well the game is performing?

Sven: It's a solid single, we'd like to see stretch to a double 8). Does that help?

At some point will Capcom release a retail hard copies of their downloadable games in a compilation? Like SSF2T HD Remix bundled with Mega Man 9 and 10?

Sven: Not unless some of a certain first party's policies change, which don't allow for content released digitally to be put on disc, no. The economics of doing compilations like this for just a single platform don't work.

Some stores in the United Kingdom are selling Capcom PC games for less than retail price. If I pay a cheaper price, are you guys getting less money?

Sven: Unless we've price protected the game in question, it makes little difference. In the UK it's slightly different than elsewhere. There's several retailers locked in a "race to the bottom" in terms of who can be the most aggressive on pricing in an effort to gain marketshare. Sometimes they're loss leaders.
