For these two series, there are 4 Zero games, one game collection, and two ZX games. And then there's one regular game soundtrack for Z1-3, and 8 remixed albums with one more on the way. There's a 7:10 ratio, and that's not including the recent events with both Rockman 9 and 10 having two soundtracks each, plus the Chiptunes album and the Capcom-endorsed fan album.
At this rate the odds are we will have more albums before we have more games. It seems to cost a lot less time, money and manpower to produce a remixed soundtrack than to put out a full game. I can't help but wonder if they make a greater profit margin off these types of albums as well. How do you guys feel about there being more music collections than games for these franchises? Do you like the trend, or do you feel like they're milking it?
Topic: More albums than games., Good, bad, or just a fact of business?
