Why Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen Is A $40 Retail Game

“There were major technical limitations that would couldn’t [sic] allow for a digital upgrade path,” says Capcom’s Christian Svensson. (Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen, PS3, Xbox 360)

Cause Capcom wants their $$$

It a bargain for people like me who haven't even played the original yet but I can definitely see how the ones who already played the original would not be happy with the price.

Depends on what they do with the original content too, Divinity II and Two Worlds II were re released for $40 with massive expansions, in the case of Divinity they also fixed most of the issues people were complaining about in the original release. I'd pay 40 for an expanded Dragon's Dogma re issue and those other free goodies, it's not much when you consider the cost of other leisure activities.Going out for dinner with my wife is a minimum $100 for a couple of hours fun, taking the kids to the football is 100 when you factor in parking and snacks, gaming is a cheap pastime.

I loved Dragons Dogma. I waited for this expansion.
..but, I wont be buying this for $40 as they are lying. A month or two after Dragons Dogma released, they said "dont sell your copies! We have a surprize expansion in 2013!"
So, screw your lies Capcom! There is no technical limitation, you're forcing rift crystals and a stupid ferry stone gimmick for $20 more than the DLC is worth.
Capcom, Go to hell!
Ruining Megaman, DMC, Resident Evil, and now Dragons Dogma.
Capcom have no shame.

What the heck have they ruined ?
they ruined dragon dogma because they will release a version half price with the original game + more ennemies , more areas , more skills and dual voice ?

Damn i wish more games were ruined like capcom does things.
Besides we would never had those things if the game had flopped.
So screw you all dragon dogma is awesome.

why don't you all wait for the hyper edition, then ?
you'll never buy a great game because what ? because they keep adding content for it ?

They ruined it for those who have already supported the game, because the only way they can access the extra content is to buy the whole game again. For those who haven't bought it yet, it's a good deal. For those who have, it can be seen as a slap in the face.

Something tells me that they will eventually release this by download, after they have gotten all the sales from the people who loved the game enough to buy the same game again just for the expansion.

Of course maybe there really were technical issues, heck if I know.

The whole game has been tweaked.
it's not like you've been asked to buy a whole game again , it's a halfprice deal and there is nothing wrong with that.

i'd rather have this than expansive "extensions" that were in fact cuts from develloppement.

Now we've got the whole game tweaked from feedback from the first users and capcom already supported teh first game with hard/mode /time attack mode and other things that were FREE stuff.

Shivering isles was 30 when it was first release so if this has that much new content plus the original game it's worth it. No body complained about shivering isles and this is only 10 more bucks
DragonKnight  +   454d ago
You're not seriously trying to compare an actual expansion like Shivering Isles to another blatant Capcom cash grab are you?
Summons75  +   454d ago
Oh so for everything else getting new areas, new weapons, new armor, new side quests, new story is an expansion but because capcom is behind this and it's the EXACT same thing as what I just said its a cash grab. Get off you high horse dragon, you blantently hate and troll every article your in. Have you even read a single thing about the expansion or did you just see capcom and start to hate? Yeah capcom does some stupid stupid things but they do one thing right and your still blind in hatred
DragonKnight  +   454d ago
Off my high horse? Have YOU read about the expansion? Half the data is a Capcom excuse to charge $40. At least with Shivering Isles you actually paid for what you got. Everything in the expansion itself is only worth $20, it was the same thing with Super Street Fighter IV. But what else could I expect from a person that defends the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy for the same B.S. that he hates on the DmC game. You flip flop worse than the shoes of the same name.

Capcom did right by Dragon's Dogma, but they lied when they said they'd re-evaluate their DLC practices, and they feed us excuses with this. Only an absolute brain dead moron thinks Dark Arisen is worth $40 when half of that is the vanilla game itself. And if you really believe Capcom's story that they couldn't make a DL only expansion at $20, then you're the worst form of naive around. I'd call you a Capcom fanboy, but your flip flopping nature makes you worse than that.

It's a damn shame really. I'm going to have to pass on this one. Say no Crapcom.
Heavenly King  +   454d ago
SSFIV again. Looks like Capcom does not learn from their mistakes. Oh well, I wont buy any new Capcom game till they get their crap together.
ApolloTheBoss  +   454d ago
Does anyone know if its gonna have a bunch of download vouchers? I want to buy this used to avoid giving money to capcom.

Most likely, it may have a few downloaded things, but it sounds to me like almost all of it is on the disc. At least the core stuff. The only things I see that could really be true dlc that you'd have to download is the infinite ferrystones, the 100,000 rift crystals, and the Gransys armor pack.

Was going to buy the original for about 30 during the holidays. Glad I missed out so I can get this for 40.
KrisButtar  +   454d ago
is this version the all dlc included version, havent played it yet kinda waiting for the complete version
phantomexe  +   454d ago
Ok whats new and how long will the new dlc be. How many new sidquest etc.
metalgod88  +   454d ago
I think what I'm going to do is trade in DD and use that money to get the new version. The reason being is that the game is still high priced at the store so I'll likely get $15-$20 for it which is taking half the price off the newer version being released in a few months. I think that's pretty much worth it.

Not to mention...once the newer one comes out with all the dlc and stuff, there's really no point in holding on to the original unless you have some type of weird connection to the box itself.

The only downside is that I won't be able to play Dragons Dogma for a few months, but that's ok. I've got PLENTY of other games I've needed to finish(for years :P). I'm lookin' at you "The Saboteur."
