Swine Flu May Impact Capcom's E3

May 19, 2009 -

Just when you thought the swine flu panic was winding down, Develop reports that the virus may impact Capcom's scheduled E3 appearance.

Japan, which has seen a recent jump in swine flu cases, has been closing schools in Hyogo and Osaka prefectures at the request of the government. The outbreak could keep Japanese employees of the Resident Evil publisher away from E3:

Capcom has told Develop that its Japanese arm remains undecided on whether it will be attending the upcoming E3 event in Los Angeles. The publisher has stated however that it will still have a presence at the event with US and UK teams attending...

A spokesperson for Capcom... stated that Japan’s tough travel regulations has impacted on Capcom Japan’s options for E3...

Capcom did however clarify that it will still have a big presence at E3... “The show is in Los Angeles and we have offices in America, so E3 is still on” the spokesperson added.

This is why they don't have game developers in Madagascar.

I wonder how this will affect their Mystery Game #2 announcement.

Yep, one dead U.S.  citizen from swine flu versus 18,000 dead U.S. citizens from regular Flu since January. (God I love that statistic.)

Its alittle creepy when the one person who died in the country is near where you live.  xD

Re: Swine Flu May Impact Capcom's E3

What about any of the 18,000 "less concerning than swine flu" flu victims?

Re: Swine Flu May Impact Capcom's E3

The biggest difference between the regular flu and the swine flu is that the swine flu has better marketting. Do you really think Sean Hannity would try to scare you by saying that 18,000 people die of the regular, plain old flu, when he could say that 40 people have died of the super, incurable swine flu?

Swine flu is a new strain, we still don't know how bad it can be.

Re: Swine Flu May Impact Capcom's E3

Looks like it's "as bad as normal flu" to me. Because that's all it is: a new strain of flu. Not any more deadly or any more sinister, just new. Because it's new, no one has an immunity to it yet, but it isn't more likely to kill you. Like most people that HAVE swine flu, it's just like normal flu. Bed/rest/vitamins is usually enough unless you have a weak immune system or pre-existing conditions.

BillIn his article Max says "I've been told that we've lost thousands of dollars already, and could potentially lose thousands more, if not millions."10/23/2014 - 11:25am
BillJames, do you think new advertisers won't bring this up when negotiating Ad rates? From a business standpoint, if I were to advertise on Gawker I would point to this and be pretty firm on lower rates.10/23/2014 - 11:21am
prh99Had my say, what they do after that is their business. Though calling your current advertisers "craven idiots" and "pusillanimous morons" probably isn't all that smart if you are going to complain about lost revenue from pulled ads.10/23/2014 - 11:18am
james_fudgeand when they do they will innoculate themselves from this stuff before the deal is even signed10/23/2014 - 11:02am

prh99I helped him out and emailed Gawkers advertisers with the message "This is how Gawker covers you when they disagree with you". Not necessarily as support for GG but he is just down right insulting. 10/23/2014 - 10:48am
BillI think he got rolled twice. They made him mad enough to insult a possible advertiser. Other advertisers are going to notice this. It may be cathartic for him, but it's not good business.10/23/2014 - 9:17am

MaskedPixelanteI'm not sure how to feel about Ultron's mouth. I'm sure he has one in the comics, but this is getting dangerously close to Transformers "Optimus has a defined mouth and it looks super weird" territory for me.10/22/2014 - 8:49pm
