*sigh* what has this industry come to....

No no, it's just Capcom for the most part doing things like these... Go with a developer like CD Projekt of the Witcher series, and they'll GIVE you free add on stuff for their games. Go with Capcom, you'll have to pay for things already on the disc, plus DLC later on down the road.

really cant blame them... they do this type of stuff to recoop on piracy. They cant stop pirates, so they find ways to get more profits in other means.

This won't end until we begin bombarding Capcom's forums and creating massive online petitions about this.

@kury

Nickel and dimeing loyal customers IS NOT the way to combat piracy, but it is the way to isolate your fanbase

Wow haha

Now...will I rent or pirate?

If you're buying the game and you decide not to pre order then its your fault. Is it the best practice, no. However you can get it for free with a pre order so I don't see the problem. I do understand the other dlc items that they choose to charge for and I understand your anger but you dont have to buy them. Just watch them on youtube because someone else will buy it.

like no one expected this c'mon son its crapcom we're talking about here. of course they are gonna find a way to screw the consumer. there is a reason why crapcom’s better business bureau rating was downgraded by three ranks.

CAPCPOM being CAPCPOM.

Will buy this day 1, beat all the 3 campaign's, not even consider playing the MP/Co-Op (Won't Use The Online Pass Code), and then sell it.

Buying this just for the Campaign.

That seems like a waste of money 2 me. Well to each his own.

Capcom has to know what people think of them. I think they are just doing this to piss more people off!

Dammit, Capcom is just begging to be hated from their fanbase. They might as well wait for me to take a dump on their heads and sprinkle some rainbow sugar to make them happy.
LOGICWINS  +   894d ago
The fact that they have the balls to do this over and over again indicates that there is a MUCH bigger Capcom fanbase out there that doesn't care that they're being ripped off.

If the majority of Capcom's fanbase had a problem with this, they would have been buying used and Capcom would be losing money...thus forcing them to give into gamers demands.

Sadly, the majority don't care.

It's rare I agree, but I do.

With Capcom, they know it will work. Why? For one it's Resident Evil. When the profits are looking like gamers notice, and are getting angry. Then you'll see Capcom change it's methods to adapt.

Shoddy methods only last so long.

looks like someone is begging for torrenting and burning their game on a disc for free DLC unlocked play :P

Capcom needs to fire the person who keeps making these dumb decisions.
aDDicteD  +   894d ago
there it goes,there will only be one map given to you, meaning more dlc to come in the future thanks crapcom
vallencer  +   894d ago
I hope most of you realize it isn't just capcom who lock things out for pre order items. Everyone does it. It just seems like everyone is focusing on them because of their business choices as of late.

GOD DAMNIT!!!

I know what us gamers can do. Pirate. Pirate the Fukers outta business. That will teach them a lesson.
turgore  +   894d ago
If these stupid decissions continue, I see capcom going bankrupt. Messing up all their franchises and fans will do that to a company.
