On-Disc DLC: Enough is Enough

When it was revealed that Capcom’s latest fighter Street Fighter X Tekken had its upcoming DLC already on disc it caused quite the online riot. How dare Capcom try to charge extra for content already on the disc, fans screamed. Capcoms defense was simply, “”There is effectively no distinction between the DLC being ‘locked’ behind the disc and available for unlocking at a later date, or being available through a full download at a later date, other than delivery mechanism. ” Normally I defend companies like Capcom from fan hatred but really Capcom? No distinction?

Give me a fucking break. (Capcom, DLC, Mass Effect 3, PS3, Street Fighter x Tekken, Xbox 360)

seriously, this is so bent. how can they justify this idea? i don't care how they put it, the content is already on the disk and therefore i already bought it.

would you buy a CD Album of your favourite singer and then be happy to pay the music label money to unlock more tracks from the album?! that you just 'bought'!!!! this is extortion, clear and simple

Capcom, along with other notorious publishers are all going to suffer in the long run if this kind of behaviour continues. In the pursuit of maximum profits they are going to drive away customers.

I wonder how long it will be till this kind of thing is highlighted on BBC's Watchdog.

No, there really is no difference. If they're going to charge extra for something then big Freaking whup if its already on the disc, its just like buying a piece of software that has you pay to unlock features.

It's not like they advertised that the 12 characters, gems, etc would be free or available at launch.

Or, you know...they could do what Namco does with Tekken...just, add as much in and make it where you play to unlock the content to extend the replay value.

I don't know where you anti-constumerist come from but I wish you would go back to that place.

We don't like your kind 'round these parts.

Yes they did, a Cody and Guy trailer was released. Fact is they should have released it day one as a collectors edition for 10 bucks extra but instead they show their true greedy Japanese colours. The dirty.....!
