Oh Capcom, you so DLC

Capcom is fast becoming a publisher well known for squeezing as much money out of the consumer as possible, especially when it comes to DLC. What you see below is a quick summary of recent events that have earned Capcom the “money-grabbing” badge of honour. (Capcom, PS Vita, PS3, Xbox 360)

Capcom will probably make an extra few pennies for the bank, but in the long run they're only going to continue pissing off their fanbase and lose more customers.

Everyone should protest and refuse to buy the content and watch the money grabbing bastards squirm.

If only it was that easy.

well said there, it's really hard and tempting

Haven't brought a game published by Capcom in years

Me neither, certainly haven't seen any reason to change that, other than Marvel vs Capcom 3, still thinking about it though. I'll prolly end up going SFxTekken or MK Komplete edition though.

Is that a conscious decision to avoid buying their games, or you just haven't been interested in what they've published?

It's because of the whole nickle and dime treatment.....

Shameful cash grab. 99.9% of all DLC on the market is fail. Gone are the days of expansion packs and unlockable content. Gone are the days.

My Crapcom games that I bought this generation are:
Super Street Fighter II HD Remix (great)
Devil May Cry 4 (sucks)
Flog(they published the game??)
Bionic Commando Rearmed (mediocre)

And it looks like they won't get money from me in the future.
They suck.

I don't see why on-disc DLC by Capcom is so overblown, I mean every game that comes out now, pretty much has on-disc DLC
aDDicteD  +   1320d ago
yup, and half of those are from capcom titles
aDDicteD  +   1320d ago
the article is right, capcom needs to stop doing this tactics, it's starting an uprising on things to come, they make good games but they don't make good decisions, they don't want to piss off their fan base so better change your money grabbing on disc dlc tactics cause there's not much unlockables for replay value of the game, there's just money milking dlc and more lies capcom

they're on my list.
along with ea.

and a few other select games.

if it's on my list, it never gets bought new.
if i find them cheap enough preowned, then i might buy them, but never new.

that's my response to the actions of companies like ea and capcom.
because i know, not giving them my money is the only message they'll understand.
