Capcom & OC ReMix Announce For Everlasting Peace: 25 Years of Mega Man Album!

Recommended Posts

They're totally proprietary and their songs come in mp4 format, playable only on iTunes and not shareable. (but, you can convert to mp3 with FreeStudio or other programs) (oh wait, my husband just said you can now convert to mp3 right within iTunes)

yeah iTunes can do mp3 easily

I use it all the time and find it extremely convenient

Isn't iTunes only compatible with Apple products?

no

Not at all. I've used iTunes for years and I'm a Windows junkie, so you should be good with that :)

You guys had me until 'iTunes'. I'm glad you're considering other possible avenues of sale, Amazon MP3s might be worth looking into. This is a pretty cool development for OCR, congrats to everyone featured on the album. Looking forward to hearing it.

I figured as much... I don't know anything about iTunes. Can you "take the songs with you" without having an iPod or some form of iDevice? If you use Windows can you basically just play the music in the iTunes program?

I'm personally holding out for vinyl

I haven't tried transferring to non-iPod portable players through iTunes, but one thing I did in the past with iTunes purchases was converted into MP3 and transferred them onto my old MP3 players through Windows Explorer. And yes, if you use Windows you CAN play them through iTunes themselves.

Lol, though to me an audio casette would be nice :P

Install iTunes -> sell soul to Apple -> buy album -> also buy the Roof Beam Carpenters album while you're at it -> convert to MP3 -> uninstall iTunes

can't get your soul back from Apple tough

Kidding about souls and Apple, but not sure I want to jump through those hoops either. DarkeSword, won't the bitching about iTunes-only in this thread help make Capcom consider other distribution channels? :)

Nope. It won't. Because we (i.e. OCR staff) are already interested in pursuing other avenues of sale in addition to iTunes. It's just a matter of us working out the details. So complaining about it is just akin to yelling at fire to keep burning.

iTunes tracks are DRM-free these days. No sweat playing them on my Android phone, for instance. I don't see what the big deal is.

This.

Are you guys able to share what the release timeline looks like for this? I can't wait, and I'm still hoping to hear it on Spotify :)

Helicopter Knife Fight. hmm, I wonder who this link-less, misterious guy... or group of misterious guys are.

It can't possibly be those idiots Sir_NutS and Jivemaster. They're total fools.

it's out!

and it's $19.99.

edit: hmm... the vgmdb entry lists the price as $9.99. which makes sense since the other album is that price. so either vgmdb is wrong or itunes got it wrong.

Sorry Mirby my answer sounded really cold, I was just typin quickly. Spare a thought for us Aussies who get raped by iTunes album prices. The original price was $35.49 for us lol. Had small heart attack. It's now a comfortable $19 ;)

Aussies are getting screwed from every side, it's a lot less appealing than it sounds. They can't even get M-rated video games there a lot of the time without some kind of censorship. Sucks you gotta pay double :cry:
