Capcom Charging $3 For Street Fighter III Additional Colors DLC

Capcom has been going to the frivolous downloadable content well quite a lot lately, but the company's newly announced expansion for Street Fighter III: Third Strike Online Edition for the Sony PlayStation 3 and Microsoft Xbox 360 goes above and beyond ridiculous. The game's first set of DLC is coming next week, and while the various incarnations of Street Fighter IV and Marvel vs Capcom 3 asked players to kick in more money for alternate costumes, Street Fighter III is offering extra color palettes for a fee.

"The colors are available in pretty much all modes, but can’t be seen by people who haven’t purchased the DLC."


Bereaver2637d ago

What? Can't be seen by others who don't have the content purchased? Why? There's absolutely no reason to buy then.

Spitfire_Riggz2637d ago

I could buy angry birds with that! For me and 2 friends! or like 3 Playstation minis! Or 3 spicy chickens at mcdonalds! WOW

Capcom is now charging us for a slight color change in the costumes. You must be kidding me.

Capcom, you're officially on my "Do Not Support" list.

WTF is going on with Capcom are they facing financial problem or do they have chimps making their business desicions?

I bet their next fighting game will require you to pay 5$ if you want to play 2 player mode.

LOOK_AT_THIS_I2637d ago

yes and it will be Super Street Fighter 3 prime edition, it will also add 4 new characters and all for the low, low price of 39.99 6 months from now.

Skate-AK2637d ago

Hahahahaha this is funny. Plenty of people will buy it though.

"it already gives a lot for 15 bucks"

"not as bad as we've been screwed in MVC3/SF4"

no I'm not making those up. People really are THAT FUCKING STUPID.

Checked the site to see if you were right... God, so many idiots in the world...
"I think it’s funny to see people saying “this stuff should have been in the original game!!!”

The original game has a metric ton of great features already – everything I could get crammed in there prior to launch. As a $15 downloadable, it already blows most of it’s competitors out of the water. And now that it’s out, we’re continuing development and adding even more stuff! How is that a bad thing?"
