Im under the impression that its part of the box art and cannot be removed. which is lame.
Well in that case, I see the point. Gamers new to it would see, right up front, that the game has critical acclaim. It may seem silly, but if it helps more sales than it hurts, I can see why Capcom would go with that.
I just hope someone doesn't turn down the game because of it. You'd better not turn down this awesome game because of the damn box art.
A flashy-first game is awesome when it comes out. A great-first game is awesome forever.
