Capcom countdown; appeasing the PS3 massive

Following the news that Capcom had taken the Monster Hunter franchise away from Sony to make it a Wii exclusive, PS3 fans around the world decided to round on the massive Japanese developer/publisher.

Their response?

Christian Svensson, Sr. Director of Strategic Planning & Research for Capcom, replied "let's see how they [PS3 owners] feel at the end of next week about us".

So what have Capcom got up their sleeve.

If you head on over to Capcom Unity you'll see there's a countdown clock that is due to expire on 17th October at 09:00 (if my maths is correct!). Capcom's message? 'Prepare Yourself'.

Is this an exclusive PS3 title announcement that will make us all happier with Capcom. After all, we lost Devil May Cry 4 as an exclusive and then Monster Hunter, so maybe this is what Svensson meant by making us feel better.

The 'Prepare Yourself' headline is followed up with a cryptic message at the Capcom site:

??? ???? ????????????? ???? ??? ????????? ? ????? ? ??????.

??????? ???????? ??? ? ?????!
Elsewhere, people have spotted that Capcom have filed a trademark for the name "Dark Void". It's unlikely they would file a trademark this late and so close to an announcement, and none of the 'question marks' in the cryptic message have a four-letter word followed by another four-letter word, so I'm sceptical about this being anything to do with the announcement.

Still, roll on the 17th.

The 360 lost GRAW 2 as an exclusive and might also lose Mass Effect.
