"I asked Capcom's Matt Dahlgren if there would be any on-disc DLC for Street Fighter V. I was answered with a very assertive, direct, 'There will not be on-disc DLC, for sure.'" -GR
That's good. Though I wonder now if they're just holding back the content and not putting it on the disc, is the only difference? Maybe I'm being cynical. Still, good news. On-disc DLC is silly.
A step in the right direction for Capcom. They've been doing well lately. Personally, I'm more excited for RE2 remake haha
Yes! Get rid of on disk dlc if it not going to be free then it should not be on the disk at all.
A sad day where we have to have this confirmed; it should just be assumed and never happen.
On disc DLC was the worst scam from last gen so glad this is not the case here. Capcom was the worst when it comes to that. Glad they had changed their way it seems. I remeber this was the reply reason for on disc DLC from Capcom: "By including these 12 characters on the disc, the idea was to ensure easy compatibility between players who do and do not choose to download the characters when they arrive as DLC. This move also furthers our desire to avoid a "Super" version of the game down the road. Everything you need to enjoy this game for months (and years) to come will be accessed by the retail disc available this week. When the DLC update does come, it will inject new life and excitement into the game by unleashing 12 new fighters into the wild." LoL, not only was there a SUPER SF4 version, there was also an ultra. So glad Capcom got rid of both of those milkages this gen.
Good for Capcom but it's sad that nowadays you have to question whether or not these games are broken on release or if content has been taken out of the main game and made into DLC. It seems like asking developers to not give us broken games with all the content included for our $60 is too much to ask for nowadays, unfortunately.
On disc or not does not really matter. If its on disc its just more obvious to the consumer that the dlc is already done and only has to be unlocked with money..if its not on disc its the same but its easier to pretend for game companies that it was made after the main game and the consumers have a better feeling buying it.
We shall see. Though given what their plans are for SFV I don't think it will be possible but sometimes you never know.
We'll see, it when it goes into effect aka when it is happening in front of you.
